last sunday, my dil and i headed to Atlanta for a mini-girls getaway. let me tell you; we had fun with a capital F. sunday evening; one of my kiddos and his significant other joined us for cocktails at Le Colonial. what a beautiful restaurant that took me right back to my Vietnam Days. it was part elegant, part exotic with seamless service and top-notch food. i highly recommend going. monday morning, kelly and i packed our bags and made our way to Nordstrom and the famed Anniversary Sale. the two of us made this same trek two years ago and found this year’s in-store sale disappointing. the store selection was slim, and finding our sizes proved to be a challenge. but i’m happy to share Nordstrom Dressing Room Diaries 2021.
but guess what? we still managed to put a dent in our credit cards. kelly introduced me to a new candle brand called Boy Smells. don’t you just love that name? it’s just as cute as Sweaty Betty. and i convinced her to snag a NuFace Facial Toner. kelly thought i should totally splurge on a pair of Gucci sunglasses, especially since i’d saved my Nordy Notes to offset the price. don’t you just love shopping with gal pals? they always give the best advice! don’t forget to stop by kelly’s blog Djalali Cooks. if you want delicious recipes, this site has it all.
the first outfit is a Frame satin blouse paired with Frame le sylvie crop straight denim. during the Anniversary Sale, i like to shop for the luxury brands i love, like Frame. i highly recommend their denim which feels like butter. kelly is wearing AG ex-boyfriend slim denim.
love, love, love my new square sunglasses!
what’s up with the dressing room mirror? hopefully, you can see the Eileen Fisher ensemble. crop wool lantern pants and funnel neck sweater. kelly is wearing a gorgeous Frame sleeveless pleated top and Frame denim.
i was on the fence with these cropped lantern pants, but our sales associate encouraged me to try them on for size. kelly loved them on me. should i keep them? they’re growing on me. this is a prime example of why you have to try new things and step out of your style box from time to time. it’s what keeps you and your wardrobe modern, fresh and relevant.
a moto jacket or faux moto jacket always makes my top ten list of must-have wardrobe staples. this leather biker jacket is from All Saints and fits like a glove. size up if you want to wear a sweater underneath. affordable options here and here.
a sleeveless pima cotton dress from Vince.
love this shade of green for fall; the v-neck wool and cashmere sweater is from Vince, the denim from Frame.
look who else shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? it was lovely to meet tania from 50 Is Not Old. she writes a wonderful blog, so please stop by and say hello. tania was shopping with her sister, and the four of us had lunch together. what a treat! i can’t tell you how much kelly i enjoyed getting to know tania and lisa. these two ladies are treasures, that’s for certain. what fun to finally meet tania in person. we follow each other on social media and chat behind the scenes but live miles apart, so it’s truly a special treat to have our paths cross in person.
all right, gang, that’s a wrap of Nordstrom Dressing Room Diaries 2021. slim pickings, that’s for sure, and many items i wanted to order today are sold out. i will re-group and share a few new picks with you tomorrow. here are a few of my favorite beauty products on sale.
it’s Wednesday, time to go put a smile on someone’s face, including yours.
