Nordstrom is having their annual anniversary sale now until August 6. If you are looking for specific fall items I highly recommend that you give this sale a try. Next season items including fall boots are on very decent sale. I caved and applied for a Nordstrom card so that I can earn double points. If you shop online, ebates offer 5% rebate on nordstrom.com purchases. (For ebates referal, click here.)
I went into the store to try a few boots I spotted online. I am looking for black flat boots and simple black (minimum hardware) high heel boots. These are the ones I found online that had potentials so I went into the store with the list. I also spotted the Cole Haan wedge online and thought I'd try it on if they have inventory.
Cole Haan Jodhpur boot #541585
Via Spiga Bethany boot #538913
Sam Edelman ''Serephina" boot #540919
Cole Haan Air Monica Wedge #541615
The sad part is, none of the shoes on my list worked. They are either too big on the calf or too tall for my short legs. I didn't even bother taking pictures, that's how bad they looked. Oh wait, I do have a couple.
Blondo 'Vergara" boot. There are several noticeable differences of these boots. The shaft height is only 14 3/4" so it's great for shorties. The shaft is stretchy, so it will conform to your legs. And it's waterproof - a bonus!
Another item I picked up last weekend during presale was these Equipment Brett silk blouse in midnight. I love this blouse - the weight of the silk is noticeably heavier, the color is to die for, I'm just still not sure if to keep it or not because I don't think I'd be able to keep it spot free and you all know how much I hate dry cleaning. Here's how size XS looks on me.
Alexander McQueen knock off scarf for a mere $18 in 3 different colors. I couldn't believe how nice it looks and the polyester has a great silk-like feel to it. I bought the beige colored one for my daughter thinking it'll be less severe than a black and white one.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend and happy Sunday!
