Last week, I made a trip to Nordstrom to attend a blogger event and scope out the new arrivals for spring. Here’s a look and at what I took into the fitting room with me and some mini reviews:
Free People Allure Pullover– on sale!
This sweater comes in a bunch of colors and is part of Nordstrom’s 40% off sale. When I saw it on the hanger, I wasn’t real sure about it…and I was right. I already have the same body shape as a mini fridge, so this sweater did not do me any favors! It also ran quite big- in this photo I’m wearing a size smaller than I usually wear. My search for the perfect cream sweaters continues.
The night I tried this sweater on, I didn’t think any thing of it. But now I can’t stop thinking about it! It also comes in cream and really pretty blue color. It is HUGE though, so I recommend sizing down at least one size unless you want it to have a really baggy fit.
Free People All Mine Sweater – on sale!
This sweater is super soft and perfectly oversized. I’m wearing a size small here. I would have bought it if it had been available in a medium. It comes in multiple colors, but the red is my favorite.
I apparently have a thing for oversized tops right now. I loved this top! It was thin and breezy and I’m pretty sure I would live in it all summer long. It’s obviously very sheer, so I would wear it with my favorite layering tank underneath. think it would be so cute with distressed denim shorts and tan sandals or wedges. This one also ran HUGE. I’m wearing a 3 here, which I think is Current/Elliot’s version of a large, but I could’ve easily fit into a 2, maybe even the 1. Vanity sizing is no joke!
How cute is this striped peplum top? As soon as I saw it from across the store, I knew I had to have it. The fabric is on the thick side, so it gives the top just the right amount of structure, but it was still quite comfortable. The peplum is the perfect size. You know how some peplum tops are just so…aggressive? This one is more like a subtle ruffle hem than a full-blown peplum top. It also ran a tiny bit big, so you might want to consider sizing down in this one too.
Also, for my Cleveland-area readers, the Beachwood Nordstrom is hosting a Spring Beauty Trend event on March 11. There will be beauty experts to answer your questions, makeovers, free samples, cocktails, snacks, and gifts with your purchase. They’ll teach you all about the spring beauty trends that we just saw on the runways at New York Fashion Week. I got a chance to preview the Beauty Trend Week event and, let me tell you, it is going to be a great event.
