Nordstrom anniversary sale 2017: dressing room diary + petite friendly fall inspiration pieces

Happy weekend! Nordstrom’s anniversary sale is finally open to the public! If you are not familiar with the sale here is what you need to know. New items are on sale until the 4th of August. That means all your favorite fall inspo pieces will be ready for you to purchase at a fraction of the cost. You’ll want to stock up now as prices go back up in two weeks!

If there are some pieces that you have fallen in love with, be sure to move fast. You would not believe how fast items are being sold from the early access shoppers earlier last week! Items are also on back order or will be re stocked. If you have any items in particular you want me to keep an eye out for, please let me know!


BLANKNYC velvet Band Jacket: The trend of velvet on jackets, dresses and accessories is not going anywhere! Every once in a while, I like to add a little jazz to my usual romantic laces and ruffle tops. This jacket is in regular sizing so be sure to get it in a size down (I am wearing it in XS).

Here are some other velvet pieces that are on sale: 


HINGE Shrunken Leather Bomber Jacket: A moto jacket is my go-to piece in the fall. They are the best to layer with a light top and even your favorite scarf. This jacket runs fairly large, so be sure to choose a size down (I am wearing it in XS). The leather is very soft. I would recommend buying a leather cleaning spray to preserve this piece.

Here are some other moto jackets that I love:


ASTR THE LABEL Ruffle Sleeve Choker Top: This top is not in petite sizing but nonetheless darling! This top is so light and the perfect top to transition from summer to fall. Keep in mind that this top does run true to size. I am wearing it in a size S.

Here are some other petite friendly tops that are on sale:

Petite friendly pants

Blazers and Cardigans
