Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Purchase Review Pt. 1

My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale orders are finally all coming in. I did shopping in the store the first day of early access and was able to try on about half the items below, the other things I ordered online. This is only part one because I still have things making their way over to my house so stick around for that. I thought I'd do a review of the items I purchased because the sale goes live tomorrow and you need to act fast to purchase before they sell out again, they most likely won't be restocking. This size guide will help break down some of my favorite pieces for you! I will have a size reference down below so you can get an idea about how something might fit on you! Click on any of the links to be sent directly to the item, remember Nordstrom has free shipping and returns on all items and the sale opens will to the public Friday, July 22nd for one week only, than the prices get marked up. Happy Shopping! 

{My Sizes}
Tops: I usually wear a size 4/6 or small, sometimes medium depending if I want a looser fit.
Dresses: 4/6 or size small. I will size up to a medium for length. 
Bottoms: Size 6 fits me the best or a 27/28.
Shoes: 9.5 is my true size, but a size 10 fits the better in boots. 

Item: Socialite Cross Front Tee (keeping)
Sizing: I ordered this top in a medium and it fits perfectly. For a tighter fit size down, for a looser fit size up. This shirt is very popular right now and is currently sold out after being restocked 3 times. I am hoping it will be restocked by Friday when the sale goes public so I can order it in the white and black colors. It also comes in gray. 
Price: $21.90 marked down from $31

Sizing: When I tried these on in store I was in between a size 27 and 28, I ended up getting the 27 so I'd say these run true to size. There is a little stretch to them, but I love the ripped detailing. 
Price: $40.90 marked down from $62

Sizing: These run true to size, I ordered my regular 9.5. I am super excited to have a pair of lace up flats that I decided to order these in the chestnut suede color as well. They offer this flat in 6 different colors! 
Price: $59.90 marked down from $89.95

Item: BP. Deep V-Neck Pullover (keeping)
Sizing: This runs extreamly big, I tried the small on in store and the sleeves were way to long. I am wearing size XS above and it fits perfectly. I love how cozy this sweater is. It also looks great with a plaid button up underneath. I ordered it in gray also, pictured below.
Price: $33.90 marked down from $52

Sizing: The sizing on this was a little odd, I am wearing a size small above but bought the green one in a size XS (pictured below). Both fit the same, so maybe it was a typo? I would say this runs true to size and is going to be perfect for Fall. I ordered this in all 3 colors and will most likely be keeping them all. 
Price: $27.90 marked down from $42

Item: BP. Stripe Ruffle Hem Shirt (returning)
Sizing: Well shopping in store I tried this on in a medium and xs but neither worked for me, so I ordered this in my regular size small. It fits well, but I just don't like the look of this and the places it hits on my body. The material is great, super stretch which is sort of weird, but this will be going back. This item is currently sold out but will probably be restocked on Friday. 
Price: $26.90 marked down from $42

Item: BP. Open Front Cardigan (keeping)
Sizing: This runs true to size and I ordered a small. This comes in a variety of colors and is the perfect cardi. It is just the right length and is super cozy. My mom ordered this in the Blue Wing color. I highly recommend getting this, it is selling out fast!
Price: $31.90 marked down from $48

Sizing: Runs true to size, very stretchy material and soft. I like the high low detailing (pictured below) because this can be easily worn with leggings. It is also a great layering piece and comes in army green as well. 
Price: $17.90 marked down from $28

Sizing: Runs true to size, ordered them in a 9.5 but was a little scared they would be to small since in boots I usually get a 10. They fit perfectly with a thin sock and I love the color. I would have ordered these in the Sand Suede, but I bought a pair that color last year during the sale. The Chestnut Suede goes with most of the outfits posted below. 
Pricing: $79.90 marked down from $119.95

Item: Leith Lace Hem Peasant Tunic (keeping) 
Sizing: I tried this on in a small, it fit fine but I could not reach my arms above my head. I picked up the medium and love the way it fits. This is such a unique piece to have in your closet, I love the look of it. It sold out day one, so if it is restocked and you like it, order right away, this for sure will sell out quickly!
Pricing: $44.90 marked down from $62

BP. Plaid Tunic Shirt | B.P Destroyed Skinny Jeans Treasure&Bond 'Winsor' Block Heel Bootie

Item: BP. Plaid Tunic Shirt (exchanging)
Sizing: Ordered this in a small and the overall fit is fine, but the buttons keep popping on my chest (pictured below). I am going to try ordering a size up but it currently sold out. If you don't really have much of a chest than this runs true to size, if you do order up. The material is soft and is light, but is still warm feeling. I love the pattern and would be great as a layering piece. This also has a small high, low hem. 
Pricing: $28.90 marked down from $44

Sizing: I tried this on in both a small and medium and liked the length of the medium, both fit similar. Order up for a longer length, otherwise this runs true to size. It is really nice quality as well. This is another one of those items that sold out quickly, so keep your eye out for it.
Price: $45.90 marked down from $69

Sizing: Ordered these in the size 7 and they fit like a glove. I love the material, very stretchy but I am not sure about the style. I haven't decided if I cant to keep them or not, I have to play around more with them before deciding. But they are so comfortable so I kind of want to. 
Pricing: $40.90 marked down from $62

Sizing: Ordered a 27 which is my my normal size and they fit well. I love the distressed look as well as the bottom hem. I just don't know if I am keeping them since I have so many pairs of jeans and usually I prefer dark denim in the Fall. 
Pricing: $44.90 marked down from $68

Sizing: Runs true to size ordered a small. I love the length and is already one of my favorite items I ordered. Can easily be layered, also comes in petite sizes. 
Pricing: $44.90 marked down from $69

Lush 'Whitney' Bell Sleeve Woven Shift Dress | Treasure&Bond 'Winsor' Block Heel Bootie

Item: Lush 'Whitney' Bell Sleeve Woven Shift Dress (keeping in the green, returning the blue)
Sizing: I ordered up because this runs short, the medium is fine, but it is still pretty short for my taste, more like a tunic length. I am going to try it out with leggings and see how that goes. I love the pattern of this one! I am retuning the one in blue (pictured below) because I don't think it will go with much in the Fall. For a head up, the material is really thin. 
Pricing: $31.90 marked down from $48

Sizing: I am so in love with this jacket and will be ordering it in the other color when it gets restocked. I ordered a size small, but I kind of want to try this in a medium to see how much of a difference there is. I would stay it runs true to size for the most part. This is amazing quality and I feel like it should be more expensive than it is. This has sold out again after 3 restocks, a hot item for sure! 
Pricing: $124.90 marked down from $188

Sizing: I ordered a medium in this dress that fits well on me. I am returning it because I did not like the material and the ribbing on it. I do love the color and the criss cross top. I did feel like it was a tad short on me. I recommend sizing up. 
Price: $29.90 marked down from $46

Item: Hinge Crochet Lace Trim Dress (exchanging)
Sizing: I ordered small but will be exchanging it for a medium due to the length. It was fine taking these photos, but if I bend over my butt comes completely out. So if you are taller than 5'5 order up. I love the pattern and felt like the quality matched the price. 
Price: $59.90 marked down from $89
