Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Dressing Room Diaries

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing and I thought it would be fun to share some of my dressing room diary photos with y’all! I’m talking about all my hits and misses, as well as all the details on quality, fit and price for each item. I’m so excited to share with y’all what I got! It’s my first time doing a Dressing Room Diaries post so I would love to hear your feedback! Please let me know if you would like to see more of these posts in the comments! 

Also, I did order quite a few NSale items online, that are not included in the photos below. I’ll be doing another round-up of these specific items later this week as well as another Dressing Room Diaries of my favorite NSale Workout Wear items! Be sure to check back for all the details! I’ve also linked my earrings, bracelets and lipstick in the ‘Shop The Post’ widget at the bottom of the post. 

Without further adieu, let’s get started!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 1Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 2

Outfit Details:

Top: WAYF Greyson Lace Top – This top runs TTS – I’m wearing a small in these photos. I love the lace detailing of this top and how it has a nude layer underneath so you don’t have to worry about your bra showing through. Would look adorable paired with skinny jeans or faux leather leggings and boots.

Price: $49.90, marked down from $75.00

Bottoms: AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans – I would recommend going down a size for the best fit since these jeans do run slightly big. I love AG jeans, the quality is supreme and the fit is very flattering (jeans do not stretch out throughout the day). These jeans are so comfortable and I love the raw hem detailing. Jeans can also be cuffed if you’re not the biggest fan of the raw hem look. 

Price: $149.90, marked down from $225.00

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 3Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 4Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 4B

Outfit Details:

Top: Lush Ruffle Bell Sleeve Blouse – Runs TTS. I’m wearing a Medium in these photos since Nordstrom was out of stock in the small polka dot version of this top. Anyways, this is my favorite top from the NSale. I love the bell sleeves and the fit is so flattering. I will definitely be purchasing this top in a few colors/prints! 

Price: $31.90, marked down from $49.00

Bottoms: AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans (Price: $149.90, marked down from $225.00) – Favorite pair of denim from the NSale! 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 5Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 6

Outfit Details:

Top: Lush Ruffle Bell Sleeve Blouse – Runs TTS. This is the same top from above but in a size small. I liked the overall fit of the small better than the medium. However, the small was significantly shorter than the medium, so if you like your tops to have a bit more length, I would recommend sizing up. 

Price: $31.90, marked down from $49.00

Bottoms: Hudson Jeans Barbara Supermodel High Waist Super Skinny Jeans – Run a bit large, I would recommend sizing down if you are in between sizes. I wanted to love these jeans so much. I’ve heard great reviews and I love the dark denim wash. They’re also super comfortable and soft, but they felt more like leggings/jeggings to me than jeans. If you like the jegging feel, I would highly recommend them! The high waist is super flattering and holds you in in all the right places. 

Price: $99.00, marked down from $185.00

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 7Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 8

Outfit Details:

Top: Halogen Bow Neck Top – Runs TTS (wearing an x-small). I really love the bow detailing on this top and how it can be dressed up for work or even a night out paired with skinny jeans and heels. One thing to note is the bow was a bit difficult to tie for me. I tried a few times but couldn’t make it look the way it does in the photos online. Maybe it’s just me, but I wanted to let y’all know!

Price: $49.90, marked down from $79.00

Bottoms: AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans (Price: $149.90, marked down from $225.00)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 10Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 9Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 11

Outfit Details:

Top: Halogen Tie Front Blouse – Runs TTS (wearing size small). I wasn’t sure how I felt about this top when I first saw it, but I absolutely love how it looks on. It has a nice structured, classic fit. Would look adorable paired with jeans, faux leather leggings or a suede skirt. Also, this top is currently not included in the NSale but I thought it was worth sharing. I didn’t realize this until I went to check out since I found it in the Sale section. I’ve linked a very similar top below (BP. Tie Front Blouse) that is included in the sale though!

Price: $69.00 (Similar Top: BP. Tie Front Blouse Price: $31.90, marked down from $49.00)

Bottoms: Hudson Jeans Barbara Supermodel High Waist Super Skinny Jeans (Price: $99.00, marked down from $185.00)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 12Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 13Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 14

Outfit Details:

Top: BP. Asymmetrical Ruffle Tee – Runs TTS (wearing a small). How adorable are the ruffles on this top?! I love the playfulness the ruffles give this classic tee. This top has an oversized, flattering fit and comes in a gorgeous blush color as well. I will definitely be wearing this top a lot! 

Price: $22.90, marked down from $35.00

Bottoms: AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans (Price: $149.90, marked down from $225.00)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 15Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 16

Outfit Details:

Top: Topshop Layered Ruffle Sleeve Cardigan – This is another one of my favorites from the NSale! I saw a few other bloggers wearing this cardigan on Instagram and wasn’t sure I would be able to pull it off (I thought I may or may not look like a purple Big Bird…). I was quite surprised when I ended up loving how it looked on! I love the color (also comes in black too!). I am wearing a US4. 

Price: $55.90, marked down from $85.00

Bottoms: AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans (Price: $149.90, marked down from $225.00)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 17Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 18Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 19Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 20

Outfit Details:

Top: Topshop Lattice Back Sweater – Runs a bit large so I would recommend sizing down if you’re going for a more fitted look (I’m wearing a size US size 4, equivalent of a small). Y’all, run, do not walk to go snag this sweater! I cannot get enough of all the details. I love the bell sleeves (they’re not too overwhelming) and the lattice detailing on the back gives the sweater a sexy, playful vibe. Plus, the material is so soft and thick enough for chilly weather. 

Price: $42.90, marked down from $65.00

Bottoms: Hudson Jeans Barbara Supermodel High Waist Super Skinny Jeans – Run a bit large, I would recommend sizing down if you are in between sizes. I wanted to include the photos above to show the length of the jeans. I’m 5’6″ and the jeans were pretty long on me, I would definitely need to get them hemmed. You can also roll the cuffs for a cute look to help with the length. 

Price: $99.00, marked down from $185.00

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 21Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 22Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 23

Outfit Details:

Top: BP. Raw Edge V-Neck Tee – Runs TTS (wearing a size small – I would recommend sizing up for a baggy look). This top is not included in the NSale but I wanted to include it since it’s such a great fall staple. it’s one of the only white tops I’ve found that is not see-through. This tee is great for layering under cardigans, jackets, blanket scarves, etc. and can also be worn casually with jeans or leggings. It’s available in 5 colors including white, black, grey, olive and light pink. 

Price: $17.00

Bottoms (1st and 3rd photos): AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans (Price: $149.90, marked down from $225.00)

Bottoms (2nd photo): Hudson Jeans Barbara Supermodel High Waist Super Skinny Jeans (Price: $99.00, marked down from $185.00).

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 24Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 26Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 27

Outfit Details: 

Top: Soprano Satin Cold Shoulder Top – runs TTS (wearing a size small). This top is an item you will wear over and over again. I love the detailing on the straps and how it runs a bit longer in the back. An item you can buy now and not have to wait until Fall to wear. Available in a pink/salmon color as well. 

Price: $29.90, marked down from $45.00

Bottoms: AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans (Price: $149.90, marked down from $225.00)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 28Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 29Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Try On Session 30

Outfit Details: 

Top: ASTR Ruffle Sleeve Choker Top – Runs TTS (wearing an x-small). This top is so feminine and I love it, especially the choker and ruffle detailing. Another great thing about this top is that it is not see-through at all so you don’t have to worry about wearing a cami underneath. This blouse can easily be dressed up or down, and is also available in a blush color as well.

Price: $42.90, marked down from $65.00

Bottoms: AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans (Price: $149.90, marked down from $225.00)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Guide

The best sale of the year is officially here…the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and y’all it’s SO good! Today the sale is officially open to the public!

Today, I’m highlighting my favorites from the sale. The sale can be quite overwhelming so I wanted to share my essentials that you should try and snag as soon as you can! Items tend to sell out quickly during the sale so I would recommend purchasing your staple items on the first day. Think Tory Burch Riding Boots, AG Jeans, Stuart Weitzman Over the Knee Boots, suede booties, Tory Burch handbags, etc. Once you’ve snagged your ‘I have to have that!’ items before they’re sold out, you can go from there! 

Also, to shop my favorite Fitness/Workout Wear picks as well as my Beauty must haves, click over to the ‘Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017’ in the top right hand corner of the menu. From there, a drop down menu will appear and you can click into whichever sales round-up you would like to see!

I will be continuing to share my favorites throughout the sale as well as reviews from the items I’ve purchased so be sure to check back! 

Now, on to the best part, the sale! Happy Shopping babes! (Click on the image to shop!)

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Beauty Favorites

I am a serial beauty buyer which is one of the many reasons why I get so excited for the Beauty Exclusives during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Being a self-proclaimed product junkie, I always jump at the chance to try out new products, especially for such amazing prices!

Below is a round-up of my current favorite finds in the Beauty Exclusives section of the sale. There are so many amazing products included in the sale but there are a few I definitely wanted to call out that I really love/am excited to try! I’m highlighting everything from make up to skin care to hair care (including amazing hair tools!) and more. Click on an image to shop!


I have always been a fan of Laura Mercier products. They’re of such an amazing quality and the colors are always so pigmented, which I love. The colors feel like velvet to the touch and blend seamlessly! The eyeshadow and blush colors in this palette look gorgeous!

I’ve heard amazing reviews about the Impressions LED Makeup Mirror! One of my favorite features about the product is that it does not require a plug to be turned on making it perfect for traveling.


The Kiehl’s Jumbo Creme de Corps lotion is my all time favorite body lotion. When I first tried it, I was a bit hesitant since it’s more on the expensive side. But y’all, this stuff is amazing! It will keep you moisturized all day long. Also, the jumbo-sized bottle is huge and lasts for a year (perfect timing to stock up again during the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!).

I absolutely love Charlotte Tilbury bronzers and blushes. The colors are gorgeous and apply beautifully on the skin. I’m excited to try out the Charlotte Tilbury Bronze & Blush Palette, which also comes with a brush perfect for on the go touch-ups!

I am so excited to try out the Hourglass Ambient Diffused Light Palette. Girlfriend, don’t get my started on highlighters! About a year ago I was on the hunt for a new highlighter and stumbled across the Hourglass Ambient Powder and instantly became obsessed. That being said, I’m excited to try out this palette which features a highlighter, blush and a bronzer.

When I saw that the Alterna Caviar set was included as part of the sale, I instantly added it to my cart. My hair has a good amount of heat damage since I’m constantly using curling irons, blow dryers and straighteners on it. Also, about two years ago I absolutely fried my hair while we were in Italy due to a converter breaking. My hair has never quite been the same since then even though I’ve tried countless products. I’m dying to see what the Caviar Set can do for my hair! I’ll definitely do a review for y’all to share my results!

What beauty products are you hoping to snag during the sale? Also, I’d love to hear if you have any beauty recommendations, I’m always interested in trying out new products!

Thanks so much for reading lovelies and happy shopping! xo
