Nordstrom Anniversary Sales Purchases & Reviews PART 2

August 16, 2020

So … more fabulous Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases arrived in the mail!  Let’s discuss!

YSL camera bag, Honey Bootcut Jeans


Shop the Look: 


Joe’s Jeans – Honey Curvy Bootcut

Where are my bootylicious babes?  These are your new fav jeans!  Cut for a curvy lower half, these jeans fit and flatter.  Extra credit for being super soft and comfortable!  Be sure to follow the Joe’s Jeans size chart if you order these. I’m usually a 28 or 29 and according to the chart I was a 30 so that’s what I ordered and they fit perfectly.


Chinese Laundry – Theresa Platform Sandal

Back in the early 90’s I had a pair of Chinese Laundry platform sandals that I lived in!  These reminded me of those and I couldn’t resist the silver croc option!  These are a steal at $40 and too fun to pass up. Lots of color choices!  True to size.


Added these to my outfit…. again:  Kendra Scott Ryder Earrings (yes, I decided to keep them … you knew I would, right?), Treasure and Bond Wool Hat,  and Prada Sunglasses.(Also worn here.)


Also introducing …. my new pretty baby … a Saint Laurent Lou Matelasse Calfskin Leather Camera Bag!  I’ve been wanting to treat myself to a super special bag for awhile and when I celebrated my 20 years of sobriety I figured that was excuse enough!  It’s dreamy and perfect … and you know you’ll be seeing it ALL THE TIME!

Update on the Salvatore Ferragamo Calfino Reversible Leather Belt

I took the belt back and ordered up two sizes (from 34 to 38). Fingers crossed that it fits perfectly!  Hopefully I’ll be wearing it soon.  It would’ve looked so good with this outfit, right?

I’m still waiting for my houndstooth booties to show up!  I’ll keep you posted!

And can we be honest? Okay, okay … I DID go a little over my budget this time around. But here’s my excuse: I had a lot of Nordstrom notes to use!  So those dollars don’t count, right?! 😜

ICYMI, here’s the other Nordstrom Anniversary Sale purchases review, as well as my tips for shopping the sale. 

Just let me know if I can answer any more specific questions on anything that I bought. I’m always happy to share!

Fun & Fashion,

    great bag! keep it close when you’re on the streets. mine was snatched right off my body. it advertises and screams high resale value which is a green light for thieves. also why i never shop in down town seattle anymore.

    What are the quality and fir of the houndstooth bootie. I was reading the item reviews and I had some concerns?

      Hi there! Well, I love them. I haven’t read the reviews. The material isn’t leather or suede … it’s some kind of textured fabric. Maybe not for everyone, but I think they’re cute! They are true to size as well. It’s a nice little heel … practical and wearable.
