The Sale: Save BIG on Brand-New Fall Arrivals at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. FREE Shipping. FREE returns. When:Now through August 6, 2017.
It seems like back to fall (i.e. school) shopping for adults is starting earlier and earlier each year. Since the kids are buying their supplies in July now (the time I buy my office supplies), we have to start thinking of our own fall wardrobe, because September is coming!!!
Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale is from now until August 6th. Here are 50 of my favorites (plus don’t forget the Spanx).
Since I am redecorating my home, I wanted to come up with a theme that would make me happy. So I decided to make my space joyful, serene and calm. The bedroom is the spot where I add a little glamour with crystal chandeliers and a bed you don’t want to get out of.
I basically sleep in my closet. That is how I describe my bedroom because my closet can’t hold my wardrobe, so the prized items come out of the closet and become part of the decor. Color is the key to creating a gorgeous place to sleep at night. Use soft colors, neutrals, lilacs or blues to create a calm space, then add ONE bright color like pink (see the Oliver Gal print) to make you smile in the morning.
My ombré wall in three shades of blue plus my oversized Chanel Oliver Gal painting in pink makes me smile every single morning, because it is so calm and beautiful to look at each day. You should always decorate in a way that will make you smile before you start your day.
Keep in mind that less is better. Don’t overdo it. Keep it simple. Instead of an art wall, consider buying one oversized piece of artwork. It’s less clutter.
JCP’S BLACK FRIDAY IN JULY SALE
The Sale: JCPenney is having their Black Friday in July Sale. When: Now until July 29, 2017.
Over the past couple of years Forever 21 has become my go to source for items I can’t find in the big department stores. When I was looking for maxi cardigans that go all the way to your ankles, no place had it. I stopped into Forever 21, just by chance, and they had it. Trust me when I say I stocked up.
I spent two years looking for a satin jacket. The search finally came to an end when I found one online at F21. It fit so well and looked gorgeous. I received so many compliments on it.
I am a stickler about quality. I find F21’s quality has improved over the years. I bought a couple of tops the last time I was in Las Vegas (2 or 3 years ago). They are still holding up very well.
Just recently, I was shopping around for the Miu Miu Lace Up Ballet Flats. I loved the style, but not the price. Something told me to check F21. I found the exact same shoe for around $20. [See post]
There are very few shops that are on my list of approved ‘low end’ stores. F21 made the cut just because they seem to have whatever obscure piece of fashion I dream up that I want to add to my closet, and it’s not crap. Each item I purchased has staying power. I love their shoes and jewelry, too. I also purchased a few handbags from them to add to my collection.
With all of the 4th of July sales coming up, this is one you will definitely need to shop, my dear fashionistas. Mark it down!
I am obsessed with the Miu Miu Belted Ankle-Wrap Ballerina Flats. Ever since they came out, I wanted a pair. At $675, it is a little more difficult to click on the ‘Check Out Now’ tab. I do not like spending a lot of money on everyday shoes because they deteriorate much faster with each wear, unlike handbags.
As I contemplated purchasing a pair, in the back of my mind, I kept thinking…look at Forever 21. You will not believe what I found.
I ordered a pair in almost every color. The shoes are very comfortable, and they come with both the black satin laces and the gingham print laces.
Talk about a steal!
