Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Try-Ons

Loved this leopard, open-front cardigan, but I didn’t buy it because I couldn’t justify spending that much on a piece I can’t really wear to work. I recommend sizing down a size if you’re going to order it. The dress I’m wearing in this post is my own, but it’s super old. Old Navy, maybe? My watch is here, and I’m not even going to bother linking to my super chic phone case…


Apparently, I have a thing for neutrals. L-R: cocoon cardiganclassic cashmere sweaterdressjeans (not on sale)


I really liked this gray v-neck sweater. It is nice and long, and not itchy at all. I’m not sure that I would pay more than the sale price, though. It definitely runs large, so I would purchase a size smaller than usual unless you want it to have an extra relaxed fit. I’m wearing a size smaller than normal in this picture. I’m also wearing these size-zip ponte pants. They are sort of like leggings, but much thicker, so they really suck you in. I also feel like these are something I could wear to work on casual Fridays. I like these pants much better than the J.Crew ponte pants I’ve tried on a gazillion times in an attempt to convince myself that I love them as much as so many other bloggers seem to.  Both the sweater and the pants came home with me. I found the pants to be true to size.


I liked both of these pieces. Unfortunately, cocoon sweaters like this one seem to add more bulk to my already bulky figure, so that was a no-go even though it was so soft and cozy. I liked the dress, too, but it ended up staying at the store. I think both pieces were pretty true to size.


I couldn’t resist trying on this Vince coat. I wanted the tan one so badly last year (I think I might have actually cried over it at one point…haha). I thought, maybe if I tried it on, I would see that it wasn’t that great and then I’d get over it. NOPE. It’s amazing. It was so soft, very lightweight, but still quite warm. Now I want it even more than I did before, but I still want the sold-out tan color from last year. Also, I need to win the lottery. They only had one left at my local Nordstrom & it was too small on me, so I didn’t take any fat-guy-in-a-little-coat pictures in an attempt to save some of my dignity. Sorry.


I think I liked this shirt, but it was kind of hard to tell because I accidentally grabbed the wrong size, and I kind of got stuck in the shirt. You have never experienced panic until you are alone in a fitting room and get stuck in a piece of clothing. (It really wasn’t that bad. It was only a tad bit too small, so I would say this shirt runs a little large).


I love me some cashmere! Especially when it’s this beautiful camel color. I forgot to document what size I tried on (#fail), but if I remember correctly, this sweater was pretty true to size. I think I would’ve sized up though just because the material was pretty thin. That’s just a personal preference thing, though. I didn’t buy the cashmere, only because I scored some major deals ($40 or less!) on cashmere at Nordstrom Rack on Black Friday last year, so I’m holding out for that again. Also, these jeans are amazing. Super soft and comfortable, a deep black color, and just the right amount of stretch. OH, and they’re less than $50!  They run large, so get a size smaller than usual. I have super short legs, so I cuffed the jeans when I tried them on, but I think I’ll probably have them hemmed. I’m going to live in these this fall.

I didn’t take it into the fitting room with me, but I saw this bag in person, and I loved it. I couldn’t believe the quality considering the bag is only $40! I’m admittedly a bag snob, but I kind of wish I would’ve bought it in the nude color. It would be a great work bag! I also loved this coat even though I didn’t try it on. It was so soft to the touch.

I also ordered a bunch of things online, so, if y’all like this post and want me to do another try-on/mini review like this one, I will get to work on it as soon as my order arrives!
