The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has gone live so scroll down to find first impression updates added and the links for all the Top 10 picks inserted!!  Then make sure you are following me on Facebook to see pictures of everything as I try it on this afternoon.    

It’s that time of year again … my favorite shopping time … the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.  I love fall clothes, I love sales and this is the best of those worlds combined!!

If you’ve never shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary sale then you are in for the greatest treat ever come July 21st (or July 13th if you are a Nordstrom card holder).

This is one of the few sales where you can purchase items pre-season.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Rather than waiting for them to go on sale and you can no longer wear them … you buy them on sale and then have ALL SEASON to wear them.  #winning

If you missed my initial catalog preview you can find it here.   That post was my first impression post.  After taking more time to digest the catalog as well as my needs I am now posting my top catalog pics in three different categories.  I will be trying all these items on on Thursday so be sure to check social media for my first impressions. #dressingroomselfies #yeah

Update:  There is lots of good work wear in the sale (730 items total). Work pants and pencil skirts abound and I’ll sort through the best of them before this weekend.  But the BOSS selection is killer.  If you are in need of a new suit or sheath dresses start there and don’t wait!  Here is a link to the 26 BOSS items. Theory also had 19 items worth looking at (I purchased a blue version of the red suit last year and I love it – remember you generally need to size up in Theory).  Two Rebecca Taylor items of note:  this dress and this shirt and I added them to my appointment session.  

I will do my top 20 work picks for the whole sale this weekend and I know a few of these items will make that list.  #thatshirtthough

Update:  I ordered three pairs of jeans (Rag & Bone in Dark Olive, J.Crew and Topshop).  I also added this Topshop cardigan which I don’t think will last the day and this DVF dress which will likely not last either.  

Most of these fall into curiosities that I will have to see in person.  But one or two of these will likely make the 20 best list.  #cough…booties ?  I will publish my Top 20 list this weekend.

Update:  I think the Bootie selection was pretty much represented in the catalog but there are quite a few work appropriate shoes that were not in the catalog and I will be highlighting them soon.  Two of note … these Rabbit Hair pouf ones (I got them in Navy) and this Eileen Fisher D’Orsay that looks super comfortable.  I will work on this roundup first!!  

This is the list that will probably change the most once I can search the full suite of options. I love all these picks … but I’m thinking their best choices are still behind the curtain. #literally

There will be a full sale roundup posted this weekend.  My stylist appointment is this afternoon (Thursday the 13th) so look for some dressing room selfies on Facebook and Instastory before the weekend roundup.
