Hey Y’all! In case you missed it on my Insta Stories, I’m trying on what I got from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale so far. There are definitely some notables from the sale, including can’t miss items. However, there are some items going back into the box as quickly as they came out. I’ll be updating this post as more items arrive.
Velvet Jumpsuit (wearing 0 Petite, also in Regular sizing)
This velvet jumpsuit is the biggest hit out of the entire Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in my opinion. To my surprise, it fits like a glove. Absolutely no alterations are needed. The crotch area is not too high or low. Plus, the hem is perfect for me with 4.5-inch heels! I recommend petite sizing for those 5’4 and shorter. I love the jewel neckline because it makes this jumpsuit conservative, but the velvet makes it sexy! This jumpsuit will be perfect for a variety of occasions including the anchor desk (for me), date night, going out with the girls or even as a little black dress alternative. To really jazz it up, wear statement earrings or jewelry.
Of course, the sleeves are the selling point on this jacket! However, I think next in line is the cropped silhouette. This is particularly favorable for petite folks, but it’s also great for restyling purposes. Because of the shorter length, this jacket is perfect over dresses and skirts since it sits right above the hip bone. This helps keep your leg line long and you look proportionate. Plus, it’s a piece perfect for both the office and on weekends. I can see myself throwing this over a sheath dress for work. Then putting over a casual dress for the weekend.
Satin Ruffle Romper (wearing XS, most sizes available)
As far as rompers go, this is one of the softest ones ever. I really like the fit of this one as it runs true to size. The length is a dash long for my liking as a petite gal, but I’m sure taller ladies will appreciate this. There is a snap button to make sure nothing accidentally pops out, too. The ruffles on this romper combined with the color make this a hit for me.
Velveteen Off the Shoulder Swimsuit (wearing size 4, fits like XS/S)
This velveteen swimsuit definitely counts as one of those wear-now-and-again-later items. Very similar to this black one-piece, it’s an ultra-flattering piece. The velveteen fabric makes this a standout item to me because of its versatility. It’s the perfect suit to wear toward the end of summer and with the off-the-shoulder silhouette, it’s elegant. However, not only can you wear this at the pool or beach, but also out and about. I love how throwing on a pair of jeans and heels really makes this a va-va-voom look. Definitely, something that’d be perfect for date night or going out come fall.
Stripe Overlay Romper (wearing size XS, fits a little small)
This stripe overlay romper caught my eye in the store more than it did online. In person, the colors really pop. I really like the high-low cut of the overlay, which is very flattering. Plus, the flutter sleeves are just darling. I will say this romper does run a tad small. Once on, it’s great. However, I did have difficulty getting the sleeves on because there isn’t a zipper or another closure. The only part of this romper that gives is the elasticized waistband.
Cable Knit Peplum Sweater (wearing 0, fits true to size, currently sold out. Keep checking!)
I initially fell in love with this sweater years ago. However, by the time I had seen it, my size was long gone and even though I searched high and low, it was not in the cards then. To my excitement, it’s back and part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! It’s 17 percent wool and a hand-wash item. I love the cable knit and the peplum silhouette. Y’all know I can’t go a fall or winter season without adding a white or ivory sweater to my collection! Unfortunately, it’s currently sold out, which shows exactly how popular it is. I recommend to keep checking and if I see it pop back into stock, I’ll definitely update y’all.
Striped Cardigan (wearing US 2, fits like 0, currently sold out, keep checking back!)
Even though this striped cardigan is a little more oversized than I would like, I’m still considering it a hit for the sale. It’s currently sold out in all sizes, which reaffirms it’s a hit. However, Nordstrom restocks frequently during the sale, so I highly recommend checking back often. I really like the sleeve length on this cardigan. Plus, it’s uber soft! Lots of outfit possibilities here with both jeans and dresses for fall.
The poppy color on this v-neck jumpsuit is absolutely stunning! It’s so disappointing Size 0 or petite sizing is not available for this jumpsuit. I’m wearing a size 2 and the chest area, bum and leg areas are too big for me. However, that is to be expected. The length of this jumpsuit is also too long, but a hem job can easily fix that. However, for me, that is too big of an alteration job and I am not completely swooning over this jumpsuit. Ladies who are taller would look incredible in this, though! This also comes in an elegant black.
Split Back Bell Sleeve Sweatshirt (wearing US 2, fits like a 0, also in lavender)
I really love the concept and shape of this split back bell sleeve sweatshirt. The material is so soft and stretchy. The split back is so fun, but isn’t too revealing. However, the sleeve is extremely long on me. It looks like an easy hem job, however, I’m currently debating if it’s worth it. This sweatshirt also comes in a very beautiful lavender, too.
