Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Mini Preview

I always look forward Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale because it gives me the opportunity to score some great pieces that haven’t yet been released. The pre-Anniversary sale began this past Wednesday and anyone with a Nordstrom card can shop the pre-sale from now until July 19th. From July 20th until August 6th the sale will be open to everyone. After August 6th the prices will increase.

This year is the first time Nordstrom has made the pre-sale available online, which I thought was awesome. However, I spent an entire hour trying to order only one thing from the sale on Wednesday so I am surprisingly tired of online shopping right now! I suppose since tons of cardholders were on the site at the same time, there was an overload, and the site was moving extremely slow and kept timing out every couple of minutes.

Anywhoo, I was able to score the Rebecca Minkoff Studded “Wallet on a Chain,” which was about 33% off of the regular price. I am slowly becoming a fan RM’s cross body bags, BTW. I thought this particular cross body was unique so I figured that I should pounce on it ASAP…I am also eyeing a Bagley Mischka tote bag, which I listed below…Can’t decide if I definitely want it, and if so, in what color. When in doubt, wait to purchase!! Lol…

Here are some accessories that I thought were worth mentioning (click the photos to enlarge them):

Arm Candy: Madewell, MK & Malibeads

As you all should know by now, I love my timepieces, and most of the time I do not pair them with bracelets (at least not on the same arm). Recently though, I’ve been trying to spruce up my accessories by adding a bracelet here and there and playing around with mixing metals and neons. I have never been one to mix metals before, but I think if you do it the right way, you can definitely pull it off:

Here I paired these two neon/gold bracelets from Madewell with this gold boyfriend MK timepiece. I love that both the golds and the neons pop, but don’t out shine each other…($22 each).

Here I paired this silver and clear MK timepiece with an old sterling silver Juicy Couture bracelet I purchased a while back. You can’t see the heart on the bracelet, but it super cute and girly. The bracelet adds a little something but isn’t too much.

Here I paired two gunmetal bracelets with a small gold MK timepiece, and I love this combo!! The small beaded bracelet is from Michael Kors (available here for $65) and the bracelet in the middle is from Malibeads (available here for $32). Although you can’t tell from this picture, the Malibeads bracelet is half chain and half beaded…this seems to be a really popular trend right now.

I am a huge fan of Michael Kors watches, but I have to tell you guys that the bracelet is not holding up very well. I love the look of it, but I’ve only had it for a little more than two weeks and the metal is turning already. The bracelet is cute, but be sure to hold on to your receipt!!

As for the bracelets from Malibeads and Madewell, they are holding up great and I definitely recommend them.

Hope you enjoyed this post! XOXO!!
