Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (Wishlist)

Ladies and Gentlemen, Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale has arrived! I was so excited to receive my email that new fall merchandise would be sold at discounted prices between July 19th and August 4th! The sad new is, I have always miss this sale. Every year, I mark my calendar and for some reason or another, just can’t commit to buying anything during the two week timeframe.

I always say that I’ll just stalk my favorite items and buy them at lower prices at the end of the season. However, this risky strategy has caused me to miss out on some really good deals. Also, since I tend to wear less popular sizes, I usually don’t find things in my size after a few months. I’m not going to make this mistake again! And since Christmas is only 5 months away, why not find gifts now?

These are my favorite items from the sale:

End of Summer DISCOUNT!

Earlier this month I posted about my new-found love for body chains and an Esty jeweler from Tel Aviv, Knobbly, actually provided me with a 10% off code that I can share with you all.

She not only makes body chains in gold and silver, but she also creates edgy earrings and necklaces.

At the checkout, enter NEWBLK2012 and get 10% off for the month of September.



ShopBop Sale: Under $200

I’ve been burning the midnight candle lately to stay on top of my thesis, classes, extra curriculars and research work. Because of this, I have had no time to pick up anything for my birthday this week! Can’t believe I’m two days away from 22!

Anyway, plenty of my favorite stores are having sales this week and I’ve been online shopping like crazy.

Here’s what I love at ShopBop:







When shoes don’t fit

I ordered some boots from Aldo, and got their largest size. I was so excited when they arrived 3 days later, but instantly became disappointed when I couldn’t get them on. I went to the Aldo closest to my apartment to have them stretched over night, only to come back the next day and still not have shoes that fit my feet. It’s really unfortunate since I already had so many outfit ideas in mind. However, I do think my experiences have given me an idea for my next fashion column.

The Culprit.


Selling on Ebay

I’m selling my old favorite pair of jeans (they’re too big now!) on ebay this week for $50 and there’s one day left! Joe’s Jeans, size 27, medium wash, never put in the dryer; basically I was a good mom to them, but now they’ve grown up and must leave the nest.
