Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 – Best Buys and Dressing Room Diaries

The best buys of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

It’s here!  Now everyone can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  I finally made it to downtown Nordstrom and tried on a bunch of stuff and bought a bunch of stuff!  This is a huge long post, but keep reading so you can see all my finds!  I think this year is one of Nordstrom’s best years yet!  I love so many things.  I was so happy with my buys I even had my sales person take a photo of me with my bags before I left.  LOL I have no shame but isn’t the wall paper so cute?

I tried everything on for you in my latest youtube video so if you want to see everything on me, check it out here!  I also tried on a few things in the video that I didn’t have a chance to photograph yet.  Please subscribe to my channel to keep up with me there as well!

Also just wanted to point out that everything except for one thing is under $50!!  Yay for affordable picks from the Nordstrom Sale!
This dress was surprisingly one of my favorites.  I’ve always been a fan of drop waist dresses – my wedding dress was a drop waist! I just loved the fit and the print of this dress.

Black Drop Waist Dress: Size XS $45.90 

Another cute dress, love all the details, especially the fun sleeves!  I also love that both were a good length on me and I think it would work fine for anyone taller or shorter than me.

Pink Floral Dress: Size XS $45.90 

These shorts are one of my favorites ever!  Funny story – I saw them on the wall hanging at the very top and I was jumping around trying to grab my size but it was so hard to read the tags (short people problems).  I probably looked ridiculous, but I ended up finding my sales associate and she grabbed them for me.  I’m so glad I did not give up on them though, they are SO cute.  I love the pleats and how it looks like a skirt.  They really dress up an outfit.

Pleated Shorts: Size XS $42.90 

And I can never resist a cute button up so I grabbed this one and was not disappointed.  I love that it kind of looks like a pajama top.  I know I’ll be wearing this a lot!

Pajama Top: Size XS $42.90 

I asked my sales associate to help me grab some more cute tops and she brought me the same top but in this satin/silk material and I fell in love!  The color and the material is so pretty.  And I know it may be hectic the first day of the sale, but if you can, have your sales associate help you find stuff that you may not have seen. I just told her the kind of tops I was interested in and she found a bunch.   They are happy that they will probably get more commission and I’m more happy that I don’t have to leave the dressing room to hunt and can just get cute stuff to try on!  It’s a win-win!

Satin Pajama Top: Size S $45.90
Distressed jeans: Size 26 $52.90 

Ooooh this top… man I told you so many cute things this year.  I love this color, the material (it’s lightweight and stays tucked in) and those sleeves!  Seriously one of my faves!

Red Bell Sleeve Top: Size XS $38.90

This is a great basic sweater with a twist with those bell sleeves.  Oh and it’s SO soft.  I hate buying sweaters only to find out later that it’s so itchy.  This one is not itchy at all and so comfy.  The jeans are by Topshop and I although I have so many pairs of distressed jeans, I had to get another.  These fit so well but I did size up on them.

Bell Sleeve Sweaters: Size S $38.90 
Distressed jeans: Size 26 $52.90 

This was a top that my sales associate found for me.  I loved it but it was too similar to the silky button down top (it was basically the same color) so I passed on this one but I had to show you guys as I still think it’s a cute top.

Ruffle Sleeve Top: Size XS $31.90 

Another top I didn’t get but I love the details!  It’s an asymmetrical hem and has split sleeves as well.  I did buy those skinny jeans (they were only $40!).  I love dark skinny jeans and I can always use another pair.

Asymmetrical Top: Size 2 $43.90 
Skinny Jeans: Size 25 $41.90 

This top is so cute, but I also left this one behind.  I love it but I know that once the weather turns here I will not be wanting to wear anything off the shoulder and I liked the other tops better.
