For the past few days, Blogger has been abuzz in anticipation of Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. I, being one of them! So many beautiful Fall clothes, so little money (I only speak for myself). This girl is on a precarious budget, and it is no easy feat to keep the purse straps tight when there are so many pretties just waiting to be shoved into my tiny closet. (To solve this, I cleaned out my closet and am giving away some old things I don't wear anymore to charity). Another strange thing about the Nordies sale: Treking my sweaty self to the store where nothing but heavy jackets and cardigans tease me. It is 105 degrees here readers! Really, I couldn't help but laugh at all the women I saw carrying loads of sweaters and skinny jeans, pulling on boots while pretending that outside, the pavement wasn't scorching and the sun wasn't beating down on all of our poor cars in the parking lot. I wore white cotton eyelet shorts today with a gray tee and my beaded sandals. Quite funny indeed while I tried on the two items that I decided to buy. It's unfortunate that these will have to sit unworn and unloved in my closet for the next three or four months. Oh well, at least I know they're there. I may have to go back for more...tomorrow?

Halogen Crop Collarless Jacket (in black and white). I DIE for this! Anything that remotely reminds me of Chanel-esque and I'm a goner. I got it in an XS. It doesn't look as cropped on my body because I'm short.


halogen Pleat Shoulder Cardigan. I got it in Deep Gem, size S. This wasn't on sale, but I needed it anyway and the price seemed right.


So that is what I limited myself to. I could have gone mad, but I am happy to report that I came out of the craziness with some money left in my wallet. Which, I still might blow through tomorrow if I decide to go back ;)
What, if anything, did you pick up? Let me know!

  5. Mere: Oh I hope it fits too! The great thing about Nordstrom is that they have a stellar exchange/return policy. But I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you! I think the fit of the jacket is true to size.
