Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Hits & Misses

The majority of my items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale have made their way to me, so I thought I would share what I kept, and what has and is going back.

I already gave some of my hits and misses in Friday's post, but am putting them in this post as well, so that it is all in one place.

If you are still looking to shop, the sale ends this Friday!


Cubic Zirconia Pendant Necklace.  This is such a pretty, sparkly, and dainty necklace.  It has three different areas you can clasp it, depending on if you want it shorter or longer.  It's just really pretty, and a great price ($15.90)!  The silver option I purchased is no longer in stock, but the gold is!

Zella 3-Pack Low Training Socks.  Some of my ankle socks have seen better days, so I thought I would give these a try.  They fit well, are on the thinner side, and very comfortable.  While they are currently out of stock, if you monitor, you may be able to get lucky and catch a restock - that's how I purchased mine!

Levi's 721 High Waist Skinny Jeans.  I wasn't sure what to expect with these jeans, but my goodness, they so darn comfortable.  It's like you are basically wearing leggings.  The high waist is great, and I like the darker color.  The overall look/fit is very flattering.  I did order a couple other pairs of jeans included in the sale, so depending on how those are I may not keep these, but they are going to be pretty hard to beat! (Update: These jeans were the keepers!)

Steve Madden Kaylah Pointed Toe Booties.  I ordered these in the cognac color, because the original ones I wanted sold out right before I could click buy.  They seem to be great quality, and I absolutely love the color.  The pointed toe looks so classic, and I like the little touch of silver on the heel.  Plus the stacked heel is very comfortable.  At first I wasn't sure about the split shaft, but the more I try them on, the more I like it.  These booties are definitely popular for a reason!

Stripe Crewneck Sweater.  I am not sure why this sweater has 'crewneck' in the name, because it is definitely more of a mockneck!  I really like it, though.  The blush color is very pretty, and I like the detailing on the sleeve.  It's cropped, but not too much - it hits at a very flattering spot.  It's a warm one, too, so will be perfect for the late fall/winter days.  And bonus, it goes perfectly with the cognac booties I grabbed!

Steve Madden Nadalie Pointed Toe Bootie.  One of the things I was specifically looking for during this sale was a new pair of black booties.  I really liked these ones.  They fit well, are comfortable and look cute both with a dress and with jeans.


Marc Fisher LTD Oshay Pointed Toe Bootie.  Another pair of black booties.  These ones are just as good as the ones above, and the reason they are both on the 'hit' list is because I can't decide which I like better!  The heel on this bootie is a bit higher, but it's a stacked heel so still very comfortable.  The quality seems to be good, and I like the clean look of no zipper.  That said, since there is a bit of height on these, they aren't quite as easy to slip on as you would think.  Not that it's hard, but it's not quite as easy as a bootie with a zipper.  


Cubic Zirconia Earrings.  I was really excited about these earrings, but they kind of pulled my ear lobe down and were droopy.  I don't know how else to explain it, but it was not cute.

Dreamers by Debut Oversize Sweater.  I really liked the material of this sweater, but the fit, not so much.  The picture shows a neckline that looks to be a crew neck.  However, when I tried it on, it looked like a half mock neck.  I don't know if it was just too tight (the rest of the sweater was plenty roomy), but the way the neckline hit, it was not a good look.  I was disappointed, because again, the material was great, and I think it would have been a nice basic sweater to have to throw on with leggings or jeans, but the fit just was not there.

adidas Swift Run Sneaker.  While I did like the look of these shoes, I wasn't crazy about the fit.  They are the 'pull on sock' style, which I didn't really like, plus they were just a touch too big.   

Cable Stitch Crop Sweater.  This would have been a keeper, but the arms were so big.  I sized up to have a bit of extra length in the torso, since it is a crop sweater.  That part fit super well, but the arms where just too huge.  They were both really wide and long.  Which, honestly I like a little bit of a longer sleeve, but it was too much.

STS Blue Elle Raw Hem High Waist Skinny Jeans.  These jeans weren't too bad fit-wise, but the whiskering was a bit more noticeable than I like.  I also felt like you could tell they were a little cheaper, especially when comparing to the Levi's.  I have tried this brand before, and I think I just need to realize that while they look great on others, this is not my brand of jeans.


Wit & Wisdom Ab-Solution High Waist Ankle Straight Leg Jeans.  I have a few pair of Wit & Wisdom jeans that I really like, so I thought these would for sure be a 'hit'.  I was wrong.  The 'ankle' length was a bit long on me, and paired with the straight leg style, my legs looked like little tree stumps, haha.  They were not flattering, and I don't think getting them hemmed would have made a difference, either.  Like with the other jeans, I wasn't crazy about the wash either.  So back they go!

Zella Restore Soft Pocket Lounge Leggings.  I love joggers, and I love leggings, so I thought this was a fun mix of the two.  They weren't flattering, though.  The stitching around the pockets really emphasizes the hip area, and then the stitching around the ankle kind of cuts off the leg, making my shorter legs look even shorter.  I think I will just stick to regular joggers and regular leggings!  However, if you are taller, or have longer legs, I think these would be really cute!

That pretty much wraps up the NSale for me!  Did you purchase any items that you just love?  

Linking up with Lindsay.
