Nordstrom Shopping Fun!

I just came back from a week in Chicago and I had such a great time.  My sister and I have not lived in the same city for over a decade so getting to spend time with her is always a lot of fun.  Now that she has Grant and we have our business, we have lots of excuses to see each other more often and I'm sure I will be making many more trips out there this year!

We spent a day shopping and I found tons of cute stuff at Nordstrom so just wanted to share my sale finds.  My favorite department at Nordstrom (besides shoes, of course) is Via C.  I'm not one to spend a lot of money on clothes as I usually reserve my money for shoes and handbags but I do love the quality and fit of designer clothing so I only buy when there is a sale.

Sorry for the not so great pics.  My phone was not liking the lighting in the dressing room.  (Dear Nordstrom, please install better lighting in your dressing rooms so not all my pictures turn out yellow and blurry.  THANKS!) :)

The red dress was super cute but I wasn't sure if I would wear it a lot.  The SA actually picked it out for me.  I don't think I would've pulled it off the rack but I liked it on.  I love the gradient jeans so much.  They are much cuter in person and very very hot pink!  I'm always happy to find a trench that fits me properly as it rarely happens.  Since I live in Seattle, trench coats are practically a year round staple so I know I will get lots of use out of it.

A better look at the trench.  Love the detailing and the pockets.

I've always loved A.P.C. but haven't bought anything because it's still a bit pricey for me.  Loved the leopard top and unexpectedly, that jean skirt which the SA picked out for me.  That blazer is a small but it fits tiny so if you have small shoulders, that's a great blazer to get.  It's linen so perfect for summer.

The little ombre dress was cute in person and it's a really nice silk material.  I'm a little iffy on spending $200 on a little dress like that but I really liked it.  Hoping I might be able to track it down at Nordstrom Rack later at a cheaper price.  (Slim chance but I like to be optimistic!).  The leopard dress is adorable but it needed a few alterations (mainly hemming it up as it was cutting off my already short legs) so I didn't get it, but for someone that is not a huge fan of leopard, I really liked this leopard print.

  1. I really like those gradient jeans - super cute!! I don't know that I'd spend that much on them though since I doubt I'd wear them that often. I'll be keeping my eyes open for a pair with a lower price tag.

  5. The gradient jeans are crazy in a good way! And the trench coat is gorgeous.

    I'm really glad you get to spend some extra time with your sister - my sister and I haven't lived in the same city for a decade as well, but in September, we're finally both going to live in/near SF together! So fun!

  8. I agree on the trench thing. I'll be bringing mine to Seattle JUUUUST in case. I get cold easily. The only thing is that mine is a little big. It's from Gap and all their items run big (it's a small!).

    I wish I could shop but I'm trying to be good... :P

  9. Hi Tiffany, I love the hot pink jeans. Just curious, which Nordstrom do you shop at in Seattle? I always go to the downtown one. Just curious cause I have to go to Seattle quite often now. Thanks Jo.
