The Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale is going on right now through January 2nd.  It was actually live early so yesterday I combed through part of the sale and picked some of the best finds currently available.  I’ve done a good perusal of dresses and then started some of the other categories (shoes, work attire and accessories).  I’m not done but I wanted to get some of the picks to you before things started selling out.  The good stuff always goes so fast!

I also have some very exciting news (read my post from noon today) to learn how you can buy all of my picks and save $1000 dollars doing so. #LoveSaving


I picked classic, timeless work dresses as well as a few fun pieces thrown in for weddings, dates, events or whatever your calendar brings in the new year. My 9 to 5 Shoes

*Theory sheath – The classic work look from a quality brand.  Bonus that it is 50% off.

*Vince – Another quality brand.  I love the lines on the silk beauty.  I’m hoping it is a gorgeous in person.  Wear to work or a wedding … just let the accessories decide.

*DVF – She has my heart … everything she makes is gorgeous.  I love when she doesn’t get so much of my budget too!  There are actually 12 DVF dresses included in the sale.

Ted Baker – Ted is my first love.  I’m on the fence with the sleeves but everything else is perfect!  I need to see this one in person.  #Happening

Bell Sleeve green dress – I am really loving this brand.  So many good options in the sale but this green one is my favorite.   I love that the bell sleeves are subtle.  This was my favorite midi length pick.

Pleated Neck Sheath – A perfect wear to work dress at a perfect price ($84).

DVF leopard – I have this dress and love it!  You can love it even more at 40% off.  The colors are much more vibrant in person!

Alice and Olivia Embroidered Dress – I love their shift dresses and this one does not disappoint with all the floral embroidery.

There were also several Draper James dresses in the sale but Small sizes were limited.  If you are a Medium or Large then lucky you!  #shopon

Caught my Eye

Louise et cie bootie – The perfect bootie for all your winter needs.  Wear with a dress, wear with denim … all good.  #Timeless

*Geometric scarf – $12 and perfectly neutral.

*Wristlet – Toss this in your work bag and then pull it out for happy hour and leave the laptop behind.

Trench Coat – If you don’t have the perfect trench you no longer have an excuse.

Tom’s Wedges – I have these shoes.  I love these shoes.  They are now $53.  #LesstoLove

*Plaid Scarf – At less than $20 this the perfect accessory to dress up any look.

*Snakeskin Shoes – I have a pair very similar and they go with everything from suits to skirt and they can even dress up denim on the weekends.

*Tweed Skirt – I am always looking for pencil skirts.  This one will be perfect for my January Capsule Wardrobe (coming soon!) This also has a matching jacket.  I just wouldn’t pair them together.

Tote – Toss a laptop or you lunch in here and off to work.

*Green Sweater – A gorgeous merino wool just perfect with pencil skirts or relaxed enough for denim.

*Bone Pumps – I just purchased these and I can’t wait to wear them!  You will see a few picks coming soon.  Comes in 5 different colors!  I sized down a half size.

*Bootcut Denim – I’ve been looking for something not skinny and not crop for winter.   Enter these …. Ab-solution Itty Bitty Bootcut Jeans.  They should be delivered today so a review will follow shortly.

I also picked this *reversible window pane scarf for $22 and these *Jeffrey Campbell beauties for less than $100.  Both are traveling via UPS my way.  Look for a stories update when they arrive.

*All the items marked with an asterisk are scheduled to arrive today (or I’m picking up) so look for an stories update later today.

Happy Shopping!
