21 July 2017


The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale just started opened up to the public (so start shopping!). You can see the part one of this purchase review here. So here is part two of a try on haul and review of the online purchases I made. Next to each item I wrote if I was keeping the item, returning, exchanging or if I couldn't decide. 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 of how something might fit on you! Click on any of the links to be sent directly to the item, things will be going very fast so if you like something you need to act fast to purchase before they sell out again, they most likely won't be restocking, and remember Nordstrom has free shipping and returns on all items. Happy Shopping! 

Just as a heads up, I wore these jeans with most of the looks below! They are also included in the sale! 

{My Sizes}
Tops: I usually wear a size 4/6 or small, sometimes medium depending on if I want a looser fit or it to be longer.
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. 
BP. Plaid Cotton Blend Shirt | AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans | Steve Madden  Gabbie Thigh High Boot
Item: BP. Plaid Cotton Blend Shirt (Keep!) 
Sizing: TTS? I ordered a medium because I bought this last year in a small and the buttons kept pulling apart on my chest area. This one I am not having trouble with at all and I really love the length and color! Plus, it is a light weight flannel, super soft! 
Price: $31.90 marked down from $49

Item: Steve Madden Gabbie Thigh High Boot (Keeping??)
Sizing: TTS, I ordered a 9.5. I am going back on forth about keeping theses. I love the black suede and that they are skin tight over the knee boots that actually stay up. But I don't know if they look good on my and about the toe shape? I wish they were rounded. For the price I think they are really great, but I don't like the zipper on the back, its a weird place (unnoticeable in black but the taupe you can for sure see it). Also, I have a pair of 5050 style boots (leather in the front and stretch in the back) in black that go to my knee and I am not sure if I should keep both? Any thoughts?  
Price: $86.90 marked down from $129.95
Socialite Cutout Choker Tee AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans | Steve Madden Gabbie Thigh High Boot
Item: Socialite  Cutout Choker Tee (Keep!)
Sizing: TTS I ordered a medium. The small would have worked but I wanted the length. I surprisingly really like this top. For under $20 if is more than just a basica tee and I love that! It is a little more edgy and super stretch and soft! Thought about order another color but the other looked a little cheaper? I think the white or mustard yellow might work. 
Price: $17.90 marked down from $28
BLANKNYC Life Changer Moto Jacket Socialite  Cutout Choker Tee | AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans | Steve Madden Gabbie Thigh High Boot

Item: BLANKNYC Life Changer Moto Jacket (Returning)
Sizing: Runs large, size down. This is a medium but I really need a small. I bought this last year in a green emerald color and love it. I got this because the colors look very high end. I love the matte black hard wear. But in really life I don't like it that much and I ordered the wrong size. I also wouldn't wear it since it doesn't match anything in my closet so this ones going back.
Price: $64.90 marked down from $98
 BLANKNYC Suede Moto Jacket | BP. Lace Trim Satin Camisole | AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans | Dolce Vita Marra Double Zip Bootie

Item: BLANKNYC Suede Moto Jacket (Keeping??)
Sizing: TTS, I ordered a medium. Okay, if you saw my last review I also got this in the brown and cognac color so I don't know why I ordered this as well, but I really love it in gray so I have to figure out if I really need two of the same jacket. The other issue I am having is this feels a little smaller in the arms than the cognac version does. I don't know if a long sleeve shirt would work under this without feeling like I am going to lose a arm. I am going to try it one some more and try to figure out if it is worth it. Out of the two colors (gray and cognac seen here) which is your favorite? 
Price: $125.90 marked down from $188

Item: BP. Lace Trim Satin Camisole (Exchanging)
Sizing: TTS, I ordered a medium mostly for the length, but I think it was a good choice. I go back and forth about this top. I tried it on in store last week in a medium in the ivory color and passed. It didn't look as good on me in ivory. But now, I think instead of this emerald greenish color I want the black? It would go with more and may look a little higher quality than this one. Either way, if I can't snag the black, I will just return it. 
Price: $22.90 marked down from 
 AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans | Dolce Vita Marra Double Zip Bootie

Dolce Vita Marra Double Zip Bootie (Returning) 
Sizing: Size up for wider foot, runs TTS for narrow feet. I am wearing a 9.5. I love the color and the style these booties when I saw them on the model but they look terrible on me from the side. I already have a large foot and the point makes me look like I am wearing elf shoes. These are a no go for me. But if you have a small foot and or tall and skinny like the model than these are the shoes for you. The color and quality is nice. 
Price: $105.90 marked down from $159.95
 Hinge Eyelet Ruffle TankBLANKNYC Suede Moto Jacket | AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans | 1. State Jacend Zip Bootie

Hinge Eyelet Ruffle Tank (Keep!)
Sizing: I ordered a medium (8/10) for length but the small (4/6) may have had a slimmer fit but I wouldn't have liked how short it was. This shirt is amazing, probably one of my favorites from the sale. It is a piece you can wear now on its own or with a jean jacket then in the Fall you can wear it with a leather jacket or cardi. 
Price: $45.90 marked down from $69
 AG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans | 1. State Jacend Zip Bootie

 1. State Jacend Zip Bootie (Keeping??) 
Sizing: TTS, I ordered a 9.5. I love the color of these since I don't have any gray shoes in my closet. The heel height looks on the taller end up it is really only a 2.5 inch heel. This booty comes in 3 other colors and is easy to walk in. The reason I don't know if I am keep theses is because I don't know if a gray pair of booties in my closet will get more wear than a cognac pair or similar? This is something I have to think about. 
Price: $79.90 marked down from $129.95
 BLANKNYC Suede Moto Jacket Hinge Eyelet Ruffle TankAG The Legging Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans | Sole Society  Mikayla Faux Leather & Suede Satchel | 1. State Jacend Zip Bootie

Item: Sole Society Mikayla Faux Leather & Suede Satchel (Keeping??)
Sizing: I loved this bag so much! It looks like a designer bag but for only $52.90! The issue I am having is I don't know if I like the color? It kind of is a gray but also a tan/taupe and I am not sure if I have things, more specifically shoes to match it. I ordered the same bag in black last night so I will debate between the two. I took the shoulder strap off the bag for the photo, but will put it on when I keep it because the shoulder strap is an essential for sure! 
Price: $52.90 marked down from 
Sizing: This runs TTS. I ordered a medium but the small would work if I wanted a tighter and shorter fit. I personally love the over size look because I feel better in it. I actually wore this yesterday for my workout (both high intensity work out and walking the dog in the hot sun) and I love it! The length is great and the fit is great for me. It is a little thicker than the muscle tanks I usually wear, but it wasn't that bad, just made me sweat more haha! I highly recommend this! 
Price: $21.90 marked down from $30

Item: Nike Dry Tempo Running Shorts (Keeping??)
Sizing: Runs a little small? I ordered a small in these (recommended on the size chart) but I feel they are a little snug for my liking so I am trying to figure out if I wanna try ordering up a size. The issue right now is they ride up when I am walking, and I hate that! If you are smaller around the hip, leg and butt area than this would probably run TTS for you, but if you're larger size up. 
Price: $22.90 marked down from $30
BP.  Boatneck Rib Knit Pullover | STS Blue Ashley High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans | Hinge Barris Block Heel Bootie

Item: STS Blue Ashley High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans (Keeping!)
Sizing: TTS. I bought a 28 in these and they are a great fit! I bought these because they looked like a pair from Madewell I saw. I had not intention of keeping these, I just wanted to try them out, but they fit amazing, super stretchy and I love the details (button front and raw hem). These are a keep for sure! 
Price: $45.90 marked down from $69
 BP. Boatneck Rib Knit Pullover | STS Blue Ashley High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans | Hinge Barris Block Heel Bootie

Item: BP. Boatneck Rib Knit Pullover (Returning) 
Sizing: TTS. I bought a small and loved it on the model but don't really like it in real life. The material and texture isn't my favorite, but I love the color and idea of it. 
Price: $24.90 marked down from 
Dreamers By Debut Forward Seam Tunic Sweater | STS Blue Ashley High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans | Hinge Barris Block Heel Bootie

Item: Dreamers By Debut Forward Seam Tunic Sweater
Sizing: TTS. I got this in a medium and love the fit of it. The color is amazing and it is super soft and stretchy! It comes in a ton of colors! 
Price: $29.90 marked down from $45
Gibson Ruffle Hem Bell Sleeve Top | STS Blue Ashley High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans

Item: Gibson Ruffle Hem Bell Sleeve Top (Returning) 
Sizing: Runs large, size one size down. I really thought this looked cute online but it is thick and really unflattering on me so it's going back. 
Price: $40.90 marked down from $62
BP. Cold Shoulder Tunic Sweater | STS Blue Ashley High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans | Hinge Barris Block Heel Bootie

Item: BP. Cold Shoulder Tunic Sweater (Exchanging)
Sizing: TTS. Not sure why I ordered this in a medium, I think it was a mistake. The small would be the perfect fit and what was recommended to me by Nordstrom. I am just ordered the smaller size and can't wait. I think this is such a cute top! 
Price: $35.90 marked down from $55
 Caslon Stripe Bell Sleeve Tee | STS Blue Ashley High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans

Item: Caslon Stripe Bell Sleeve Tee (Returning) 
Sizing: TTS, but I hate this on me and will be returning it. It looked so cute on so many other people but not me :(
Price: $25.90 marked down from $39
Caslon Peplum Shirt STS Blue  Ashley High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans

Item: Caslon Peplum Shirt (Exchanging) 
Sizing: TTS if you are smaller chested. I bought this in a small but it is to tight in the chest area and when I lift my arms up. I love the style of this and was very excited to try this out with a pair of black skinny jeans, but am exchanging it for a size up for a better fit. I am hoping it works! 
Price: $38.90 marked down from $59

Item: Nike Sportswear Essential Muscle Tank (Keeping)
Sizing: TTS. I bought this in a medium and its a great fit. I love how light weight and soft this is. Perfect for working out! Might even have to buy in black. 
Price: $26.90 marked down from $35
 BP. Lightweight Rib Stitch Cardigan BP. Front Button Slipdress 1.State Jacend Zip Bootie

Sizing: TTS. I bought a size small but the xs would have worked as well since I bought that one in a different color earlier this week. 
Price: $31.90 marked down from $49

Item: BP. Front Button Slipdress (Exchanging)
Sizing: Runs TTS if you don't have much of a chest. I got a medium and it looks fine, but it's a little shorter than I like my dresses and the buttons at the top are pulling apart/ it is tight on my chest area. I love this dress (It really needs to be steamed) so I ordered a size large and hope that works! 
Price: $31.90 marked down from $49
Treasure & Bond Stitch Play Cardigan | BP. Front Button Slipdress Hinge Barris Block Heel Bootie

Item:Treasure & Bond Stitch Play Cardigan (Keeping??) 
Sizing: This is a one size fits all. I wish it actually came in regular sizing because I feel like it is a little to big on for my liking. I love everything about this cardigan but the fit. I am going to keep it and try it out, but it may not work. 
Price: $65.90 marked down from $99
Socialite Bell Sleeve Knit Dress
Item:Socialite Bell Sleeve Knit Dress (Exchanging) 
Sizing: This runs TTS I wanna say, but I am going to exchange it for a size large instead of the medium pictured. I want more length and I don't like how tight it is around my stomach. I am in love with this color and am also going to try and get this in the black color. 
Price: $29.90 marked down from $45
Leith Mélange Body-Con Dress | 1.State Jacend Zip Bootie

Item: Leith Mélange Body-Con Dress (Keeping)
Sizing: Runs small. Size up one size. I got a medium in this when Nordstrom recommended the size small. I love the color of this and it also comes in black and a cool burgundy color that I was also interested in. Super simple dress but really like it. 
Price: $35.90 marked down from $55
 Fire Love, Fire Floral Embroidered Ripped Denim Jacket | Leith Mélange Body-Con Dress

Sizing: TTS. I ordered a medium because that was what was suggested and the fit is great. It is suppose to give an oversized look but the sleeve length and tightness is the perfect fit. Still iffy on this style of jacket, but it is a huge trend and not that expensive. A piece you can wear now and wear later! 
Price: $45.90 marked down from $69
 Fire Love, Fire Floral Embroidered Ripped Denim Jacket | Leith Mélange Body-Con Dress | 1.State Jacend Zip Bootie | Sole Society Ivan Faux Leather Backpack

Item: Sole Society Ivan Faux Leather Backpack (Keeping??)
Sizing: I have never owned a backpack purse before and loved the color of this. I just can't decide if I like the black or this taupe color better. The black style is on it's way to me. Overall I think it is great for the price, just not sure if I am a backpack purse person. 
Price: $42.90 marked down from $64.95
 Lush Raw Edge Side Slit Tee BLANKNYC Suede Miniskirt

Item: BLANKNYC Suede Miniskirt (Returning) 
Sizing: Runs small, size one up. I tried this in store and loved it, but now I don't feel the same, so it is going back! 
Price: $64.90 marked down from $98

Item: Halogen Scarlett Over the Knee Boot (Exchanging)
Sizing: TTS. I ordered my normal 9.5 and they fit great, only issue is they are tight in the calf area and I don't even have large or wide calfs. I read the reviews and they said similar things. It isn't bugging me that much and I am going to think about it. I really like these but decided that black would be a better color and I will return the Steve Madden OTK pair at the beginning of this post. I like the gray, I just don't know if they will get that much wear compared to a pair that's black. I love the low heel, so easy to walk in and they stay up! 
Price: $119.90 marked down from $189.95
