Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – What I Bought and What I’m Returning

I placed an order from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last Thursday, July 13th and paid a bit extra for two-day shipping. With the exception of one item that was backordered, all my items arrived today! I’m only 5’0 and a pretty average size 8 so it’s important for me to show you all how these clothes fit someone who isn’t a size 2 runway model 🙂 I’m not a big fan of mirror selfies but I wanted to get this post up today so you have time to shop before things sell out. Here are photos of everything I ordered along with my sizing and styling tips.

1. Kate Spade Tassel Sweater
Regular Price $298 | Sale Price $199
I am wearing a size medium and it is a perfect fit. I was really expecting the sleeves to need hemming but they’re perfect. As you can see, the sleeves are three-quarter length on the model but fall at my wrist. This makes the sweater perfect for both petite and taller girls. This sweater is thick and luxurious. The only downside is that it is dry-clean only but that’s a small price to pay for such a gorgeous top.

2. Gibson Ruffle Hem Bell Sleeve Top
Regular Price $62 | Sale Price $41
This top is so pretty and has the cutest ruffle hem and bell sleeves. It also comes in four colors so it’s the sort of top I would buy in every color. I am wearing a petite medium and it is quite big on me. I am going to return this top but I am definitely going to order it again in a petite small. The composition is rayon and spandex so you will need to hand wash this one. It is not as thick as a sweater but not as lightweight as a summer blouse. Overall, I really like this blouse for Fall but you will definitely need to size down!

3. Gibson Bell Sleeve Cozy Fleece Pullover
Regular Price $59 | Sale Price $39
This is another sweater I want in every color. The name of “cozy fleece pullover” is so true because this sweater is soft and cozy. I am wearing a petite medium and was pleasantly surprised that the sleeves are a great length. I love that this sweater could be dressed up with statement jewelry or dressed down for a comfy, casual look.

4. Halogen Scallop Edge Sweater
Regular Price $59 | Sale Price $39
Scallops! Need I say more? I love the pretty blush color of this sweater. It is thick and wears as comfortable as a sweatshirt. The scallops definitely give this top a bit of extra flair. I am wearing a size large so I would say this sweater runs true to size. If you prefer a bit of an oversize fit in your sweaters, I would recommend sizing up.

5. Socialite Bell Sleeve Knit Dress
Regular Price $45 | Sale Price $29.90
This dress is so soft and has the most flattering silhouette. Overall, I would say this dress is a snug true to size. I am wearing a size large. If you prefer your dresses to have a looser fit, I would recommend sizing up. It is 35″ inches long and falls right at the top of my knees. I also love that the bell sleeves are a good length on me.

6. Halogen Geo Linear Drop Earrings
Regular Price $35 | Sale Price $23.90

7. Sam Edelman Tia Genuine Calf Hair Pump
Regular Price $139 | Sale Price $89.90
I have been looking for some calf hair pumps for over a year now. The half d’Orsay silhouette and modest 3″ inch heel make these a perfect pump that can take you from the office all the way to date night. These run true to size.

8. Vince Camuto Fileana Split Shaft Bootie
Regular Price $150 | Sale Price $99
I love these booties for Fall! I am wearing the taupe color and they match almost everything I own. The 3.5″ inch block heel makes these booties comfortable and easy to wear all day long.

I am placing another order tonight so that I can get a few new items and exchange some things. I will do another post when the new items come in! Feel free to comment or email me if you have any specific questions about sizing or fit for any of these items.

Have a great week!
