My Nordstrom Sale Try-On

I hit the Nordstrom Anniversary sale yesterday, so I thought I’d show you my finds. I’m including the hits and misses so you can get a good feel for what has a great fit. I also did a little comparison shopping…
I immediately loved this ribbed black top. This is a great basic piece for fall. I’m wearing a small. It runs pretty true to size and comes in three colors.  I love the way the fabric falls at the sleeve so you get a little bit of a bubbled look.

Anniversary Price: $24.90
After Sale: $39

I’m so married to basics that I wasn’t too sure about this bell-sleeve sweater at first, but I walked around in it a bit, and it is so flattering. The bell sleeves add a subtle feminine element to a basic lightweight sweater. It runs true to size — I’m wearing a small.

This was one of my favorites. I don’t own a lot of pieces with embellishments, but this little side tie sweatshirt is adorable! I’m wearing an extra small and still get that relaxed look while looking put together.

Okay.. What do you guys think about the cold shoulder trend? I feel like you really have to get the right top or dress on the right girl for it to work. Here I’m wearing a small and the fit is great. I didn’t purchase this one, so I’d love to get some feedback from you guys!

This size small blouse is just so lovely and feminine. The fit is great and the sleeves aren’t too much in the way. I don’t have very many pieces like this (trying to think if I have any) because I feel like when a lot of brands try to do feminine, they end up with something that looks girly and young instead of sophisticated. But Joie really nailed this one. More of this please!

Initially, I didn’t care for this short sleeve blouse. (Again, I’m a little too tied to basics…), but when I look back at the pictures, I actually really like it. Style it with jeans and nudist heels or cute shorts and loafers, and experiment with the tie for a more fitted look.

This is one of those pieces that I loved on the hanger, but I wasn’t really sure about the fit. It felt too loose, but when you put on a smaller size, it’s not really flattering either. This one may need a little love from the tailor. I’m wearing a small here.

I was really excited about this one. It also comes in a blush pink, but I had already picked out so much pink, and I really liked the gromets with black. First I tried on in a small, and it was giant. Then I tried on an extra small, and the sleeves are just so long! If you check this item out on the site, the sleeves are also long on the model. I guess this is how it’s supposed to fit, but I feel like the sleeves will just get in the way.

This is a great price for a chunky knit sweater. It has a pretty straight cut, so if you’re looking for something to flatter your figure, this isn’t it. It definitely makes you feel a little bigger, but does it make me actually look bigger? You be the judge. I think it’s pretty cute and the fringe doesn’t feel like an unnatural addition.

Anniversary Sale Price: $45.90
After Sale: $70

Okay, this sweater was definitely out of my budget for a single item, but it is everything. The epitome of sophistication. I’m wearing a size small. It’s wool + cashmere so if you’re sensitive to itch, this one might not be for you. But if you can’t get enough of cashmere, this might be your new favorite sweater.

I haven’t jumped on the raw hem train yet, and I wanted to try something new. I love these Madewell jeans! They are so comfortable and they looked great with everything I tried on! These are a size 24. I’m usually a 25, so you may want to size down.

After Sale: $135

If you’re shorter, you can wear this piece as a button down dress or a tunic worn with pants. I’m 5’7″ and at try-on I felt a little iffy about wearing this as a dress, but with the right shoes and underpinnings I think it would be perfect!

Anniversary Sale Price: $169.90
After Sale: $258

I have been looking for a black dress with tiny white polka dots and this is just so cute! I’m wearing size 2 here. You could definitely take this dress from day to night by swapping out shoes and swiping on some lipstick!

Anniversary Sale Price: $98.90
After Sale: $148

I haven’t quite made up my mind about this one yet, but this cute little frill dress is a steal! It’s similar to the side tie sweatshirt in terms of material. I will say that I’m used to wearing lacy bralettes and this dress would definitely go better with a real, smoother bra. I’m wearing a size small.

I am obsessed with this outfit. This is my favorite overall look from the sale. The jacket is laid back cool girl vibes, and the skirt is so flattering. Both of these pieces are versatile and I think it’ll be fun to play around with different styling. The jacket is a size 2, skirt is a size 24.

You’ve probably seen this jacket before. I own one very much like it. Mine is made of a rougher leather, but this is buttery smooth. I put it on and thought, okay I know I already basically have this jacket… but I kinda really also want this one. It’s pretty true to size. I’m usually a 0/2, and size 2 was a perfect fit.

This drapey jacket isn’t the most practical item, but I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked up and thought I really need a cute little jacket to wear with this outfit. We have a winner. Size small.

Everyone should own this cardigan. It’s a great price point, The style and fit is on point. It’s not too much or too little of anything. In my opinion, the perfect cardigan. Size small.

Anniversary Sale Price: $65
After Sale: $98

I really liked this cardigan. The fit is relaxed and cozy. It’s a little heavier than the one above, and the knit is definitely chunkier. I don’t think the fit looks as nice, but lately I’ve really been into fits that lend to a cleaner look.

Way out of budget for me, but once again, Vince always scores high in style and sophistication. This warm cozy coat is definitely a hot wishlist item. Size small.

Anniversary Sale Price: $498.90
After Sale: $745

This is a great alternative the the Vince coat. It’s a much better price point. While it’s not the exact same look, you still get that two tone coziness and a beautiful structured look. Size small.

I’m a sucker for the adidas logo gear. This tank is an x-small and to be honest, I wish it were just a little smaller and/or shorter. The price point of this is great, and it’s a tank you can wear to work out, or use to create a laid back streetstyle look.

Anniversary Sale Price: $21.90
After Sale: $30

I could always use more athleisure. Running errands, working out (on rare occasion, I’ll admit), walking Willow… I could always use more cute casual wear. Since the joggers aren’t meant to be tight, I would size down if you’re a xs/s or s/m. Sports bra: small, joggers: xsmall.

This is the same sports bra, but in blush and size xsmall. The xs was definitely too small.

Nordstrom didn’t even have my size in this sports bra, so I put on a medium and pinched the fabric just to see if I liked the style on me and I love it! I think an xsmall will work best because this one was pretty big on. The yoga pants are so cute without being too far out there. I feel like they’ll mix and match well with other things as well. I’m wearing an xsmall for a tight fit, but I think the small would have fit fine for a more comfortable fit.
