It’s Ambassador access day at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I’ve got my first round of try on things for you here! All great quality and pieces, so you can’t go wrong with these pieces if you are looking for some for fall. I definitely encourage you to grab some boots and coats, as I’m always so glad I got them on sale when it was super hot, lol. See my picks below!
(And yes I said first round. I bought items online and I’m waiting for them to come in! Hopefully they will all be in stock on the next round!)
LOVE this Club Monaco dress! It’s a thicker ribbed knit dress, flattering fit and flare silhouette. I love love this dress, it’s a dream dress for me. Great for going back to the office, as well! I’m in the medium, TTS but tailored.
This midi dress is super cute, a great everyday dress. Lightweight and true to size fit, I’m in the medium. It’s a looser fit, tiered skirt, ties in the back at the neck and elastic at cuffs, but the elastic didn’t bother me.
I wouldn’t sleep on this dress, big sell out energy!
Such a cute dress! Good ol’ Free People, coming though on Anni Sale. I’m in the MEDIUM of the Free People dress and as you can see it’s a generous fit in the boobs. Which I mean thank God, right? Throw us big boob girls a bone every once in a while. I’d say overall the fit is generous. I’d suggest sizing down one IF you’re smaller up top! If not, stay TTS.
I’m wearing a camisole bra like this one here, but would suggest a lower cut bra if you don’t want it to show!
I’m in the medium of the Madewell dress! Love this option for summer and fall. Relaxed fit but true to size. The fabric is a really soft ribbed texture knit. Comes in three colors! I think this one will sell fast because it’s Madewell and under $50!
True to size, relaxed fit.
Super nice knit dress! The brand is Vince, one of my favorite luxury brands! Nice fit, flattering twist at the middle with a tie that kind of hides a little tummy. 😬 It’s a faux wrap, so the tie is sewn on. Really lovely fabric, too.
Overall a really nice dress if you are a Vince fan! I’m in the medium, TTS.
ALSO — hard pass on these flats. Not great in person, they look like tiny alligator heads on my feet.
The Levi’s Ribcage run a bit small, I always find. They do stretch with wear but I still size up to a 29! I would say size up only if you’re in between sizes like I am. If not, expect a snug TTS fit that will stretch with wear. Find them here.
Love this pair of AG jeans, stretchy fabric and flattering fit! Im in the 28, TTS! I tend to pick up a pair of designer jeans during Anni sale just because I think the price is a bit more fair. This color is nice and feels new to me! True to size and more of a mid rise fit. #longliveskinnyjeans
The Steve Madden slides are a must! Great for fall! Under $60 — TTS.
The Madewell jeans run snug for Madewell! If I’m between sizes, go up one size! If not stay TTS. I’m in the 28 but like barely 🥴 lol
I’m a pretty consistent size 28 at Madewell and these were tight. I’d say they run smaller than usual sizing there so if you want a looser fit or your in between, err on the size up. Great bargain for Madewell! Under $70!
Tops + Sweaters
I sized down in this sweater because it runs very generous! I’m in the small, so size down! Perfect camel color for fall! It comes in a few colors but you know your girl loves a camel sweater 🤌🏻🤌🏻 If this is anything like last years sale, this sweater will sell fast!
The Madewell jeans run snug for Madewell! If I’m between sizes, go up one size! (I’m a pretty consistent size 28 at Madewell and these were tight. I’d say they run smaller than usual sizing there so if you want a looser fit or your in between, err on the size up.) Find the jeans here!
I wasn’t sure if I was gonna splurge on this one…but I did. #noregerts I’m in the medium of the Vince cardigan — y’all it’s SO SOFT. Like a damn blanket soft. It fits relaxed, boyfriend fit. I’m in the medium, size down if you want a closer fit.
I’m in the medium of the All Saints tee — highly recommend this tee! Great basic, nice fit and fabric. TTS!
Love this pair of AG jeans, stretchy fabric and flattering fit! Im in the 28, TTS! I tend to pick up a pair of designer jeans during Anni sale just because I think the price is a bit more fair. This color is nice and feels new to me! True to size and more of a mid rise fit.
Love this Peter Pan collar blouse! Nice cotton, great fit! Classic fit and TTS. I’m in the medium, per usual. Fine for my boobs too! 🙌🏻
BIG sell out energy!! It’s got “blogger made me buy it” written allllll over it.
I’m in the medium of the top, fit is TTS. The shoulder pads — yes shoulder pads — aren’t too much and they fit my shoulders perfectly. The fabric is a soft brushed knit, great for fall! Find the top here!
The Levi’s Ribcage run a bit small, I always find. They do stretch with wear but I still size up to a 29! I would say size up only if you’re in between sizes like I am. If not, expect a snug TTS fit that will stretch with wear. Find the denim here!
Today I learned how to spell “asymmetrical” turns out it doesn’t have ‘ass’ in it at all. 🥴 I really like this asymmetrical sweater from All Saints! It’s a nice weight, warm but not suffocating. Since the hem is asymmetrical so it’s best left untucked. But I like it with these AG skinny jeans! (They fit is TTS, I’m in the 28.)
How cute AND weird is this blazer? With its mismatched plaids and shoulder pads. She’s got it all, let me tell you. But I have to say I do love this blazer / coat. I’d say it’s more jacket than blazer bc it’s lined and thick! Great for fall / early winter days! I’m in the medium, fit is looser. Size down if your petite or want a more tailored fit but overall I’d suggest TTS.
Freaking love this coat! Now it’s a lightweight wool coat, no lining so for me it’s perfect for fall / early winter! I love the color, it’s a soft sage color. I love the fit, it’s a slouchy fit for a medium. But I’d suggest TTS unless you’re in between sizes. Comes in 3 colors!
Finally snagged this All Saints leather jacket this year! I’ve been wanting it every sale and this year I snagged it! It’s a FITTED true to size, im in the US8 and it’s a perfect fit. Size up if you need more room in shoulders / arms. Comes in black too! Find this jacket here!
SO this dress runs SMALL. Like really small. Like I’m pretty sure I smashed a vital organ putting this on. Im in the medium and it is skin tight. Size up! FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. Find this dress here!
Love this coat! I saw it online and was hoping it would be as good in person. Spoiler: OH IT IS 😍😍 Fully lined and can be buttoned below the lapel collar. It’s a soft felt feel. Fit is over sized a bit, I’m in the medium and it’s roomy for me. Size down if in between sizes.
I’m in the medium of the dress! Love this option for summer and fall. Relaxed fit but true to size. The fabric is a really soft ribbed texture knit. Comes in three colors! I think this one will sell fast because it’s Madewell and under $50! True to size, relaxed fit. Shop the dress!
I’m in the Free People jacket — oversized fit! I’m in the medium of the shirt jacket, loose fit. Canvas / utility fabric, perfect for fall!
Okay so this robe is technically not outerwear but also not *not* outerwear, you know? I needed a new robe and this one looked nice so I gave it a shot. It’s a really thick waffle knit, like real thick. 4-star hotel thick and what a compliment that is. But it’s not super soft, it’s thick and cozy but not soft. If that makes any sense at all.
I’m in the S/M — fits me well! Find the robe here.
Is it weird that I’m absolutely obsessed with this skirt? This is the Spanx skirt and it’s kinda weird. I’ll be honest. So it’s biker shorts underneath and then a flare skirt on top, super cute kinda short. The shorts show a tiny bit from under the skirt, but it doesn’t break it for me. I’m in the medium and it’s a SNUG fit but TTS! Size up for more length!
Oh but no tummy roll over the top. So it compressed but it doesn’t push it out the top. Not sure where it goes but✨ I don’t care. ✨
This top is the Spanx go lightly tank, it’s a a very lightweight workout top, it’s gonna be real nice this summer! It is slightly cropped but did not show my belly button. Oh the things I type on the internet. Fit is true! I’m in the medium. Find it here!
I’m wearing the Spanx sports bra underneath! I’m in the medium and it fits true to size but it’s pretty snug. I liked the fit but the band under my ribcage did roll as I moved. So there’s that. Overall it’s a nice sports bra and comfortable! Size up if in between sizes.
I love grabbing Alo during Anniversary Sale! These are the Airlift Leggings and they are some of the most flattering leggings I own! I’m in the medium, it’s true to size. 10/10 recommend! Find them here.
Im in the medium of the sports bra, fit is true to size. Medium support. Not for running but good for training / lifting. Different fabric than the leggings, but the colors match exactly! Find the sports bra here!
Love this Zella twist tank! I bought it in pink and black! Fit is true to size, I’m in the medium. Love the high neckline and it’s fitted but not tight! I also love that it’s not cropped 🙌🏻
Nice weight too, good for summer. Shop the tank!
Such a sucker for tie dye and for Free People. They’ve got me cornered with this one. I sized down in this pullover because it runs generous and I wanted a shorter fit. I’m in the small here! Comes in two colors!
I’m in the medium of the Zella 7/8 pocket leggings! True to size and so comfortable! The pockets don’t stick out and these leggings wash out beautifully 👨🏻🍳 💋 these are some of my favorite everyday leggings and I love the pockets for my phone when I take gems for walks! Great deal for under $40! Shop the leggings here!
I’m in the medium of the Alo tank. It’s cropped so size up if you want a looser and longer fit!This one is definitely more cropped than the Zella one and lighter in weight. Just FYI!
I sized down in this Nike pullover! Definitely size down if you want a truer fit! I’m in the small. Super soft, fleece, perfect for colder weather! Comes in a few colors, too.
Always feels weird buying fleece in summer but I’m always so glad I did when that first cold day hits!
Shoes & Bags
The Nike Reacts are some of my favorites to snag during the sale! They fit true to size, great walking shoes and I love the no laces / slip on fit! Find them here.
LOVE these slides! Definetly snag them up if you can. They fit true to size and are comfortable! Find them here.
I splurged on these bad boys and I have no regrets — they are GORGEOUS. Even better in person than online! I find them to run a bit snug, so size up a half size if in between sizes. I bought my typical size 10 but I won’t wear thick socks with them.
Marc Fisher booties are always a great find during the sale. I get all of my boots during the sale and I’m always so glad I did when they go up on prices in the fall. These are a staple for me! True to size fit and comfortable! Find them here.
