NSale Dupes

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale goes live for everyone today at 12:30!

This highly requested post is finallllly done. I know the #nsale can be annoying and is over saturated. I get it. But, I also know that a lot of you don’t have a Nordstrom card and haven’t been able to shop the sale yet.

Lots of items are sold out, but I also think lots of items aren’t a great price. Yes, they’re on sale, but 10-20% off really isn’t that great.

So, I’ve rounded up a bunch of similar options. Some are better prices and some are even prime shipping (YASSSSSSSSSS)

  1. First up is this suede skirt that’s only available in size 31 for $64.90. This one was easy to find dupes for. Two super cute options HERE ($39.20!!) and HERE.

2. This completely sold out leopard cardigan ($31.90). Great Dupe for this one HERE ($28.99)! Can you even really tell the difference?

3. Sold out Halogen Leopard Pleated Midi skirts. I do think this style of skirt is going to be hugely in for fall. This Amazon dupe is almost exactly the same for $21.99!!! This Dupe is different, but I’m kind of obsessed with the print.

4. Man, there’s a ton of leopard on this list LOL. This cute little swing dress ($49.90) sold out super fast. Dupe linked HERE and HERE – Both options are under $20!!!

5. BB Dakota Chambray Dress – only available in size L, XL, and XXL. Tons of Dupes for this adorable dress. HERE HERE HERE and HERE (this one is $14!).

6. These adorbs jammies. Linking an exact dupe HERE on Amazon for $28 bucks.

7. This scarf sold out SUPER fast. Good news, it was easy to find multiple VVVVV similar scarves. They are linked HERE ($26) HERE and HERE ($12)

8. This Gibson Sweater… LOVE the color. DUPE for $25 bucks

9. Spanks Faux Leather Leggings… These are still $61 even on sale. SOOOO why not try a Dupe? Similar Linked HERE (I’m ordering these!) and HERE

10. BP Joggers that sold out the first day. I actually don’t love these, I don’t want to look like I’m walking around in pajamas. I prefer the look of THESE.

11. These sold out, but were restocked. If you love them, great. I don’t love them. Here are some animal inspired prints I do love. Linked HERE ($25) and HERE.

These $64 black block heels are a closet staple. BUT if the $64 part is making you pause. HERE are almost identical shoes for $32 bucks.

12. Love these but hate the $164 price tag? Here are some $63 dollar dupes for yaaaaa.

That’s it for now. If you want a dupe of something specific, message me and I’ll do my best to find it.



Amazon Prime Day

Happy Prime Days! Two days of deals on deals on deals.

I’m rounding up all my Amazon finds here for you guys.

Reminder: NOT all the deals go live at the same time. So, some of the things linked here aren’t on sale yet. If it doesn’t say “prime day deal” it’s not on sale yet.

I’ll keep updating this here and on stories. Flash deals sell out fast. Use the Buy it Now button if it’s something you love.

My favorite plain black and white tees are part of prime day! There are linked below. I have 3 of each and I wear them all the time.

I’m also gonna join 2019 by getting airpods. Will I lose them immediately? Stay tuned…

I tried to organize the picks accordingly.. First is fashion, next is beauty, last is tech.



Nordies Sale Picks

Wow, it’s been a hot second since I wrote a blog post.

I am going to try to be more consistent (sorry y’all). SO many of you have messaged me to ask if I stopped blogging (NO!). But, since joining RewardStyle – most of my shoppable posts are on that platform and here under Shop My Instagram.

Let’s get down to business. The time has come for the annual Nordstrom sale. To be honest, I’ve been kind of dreading it for a few reasons.

  1. Every blogger under the sun hits the sale HARD. There are a few reasons for this. Nordstrom really pushes the sale hard to most bloggers and pays influencers $$$$ to promote it. BUT, also RewardStyle (the company bloggers uses to monetize their blogs) and Nordstrom work together to create more commission for bloggers. So, it’s in EVERY bloggers best interest to hit the sale hard. But, it always leaves me feeling a little meh about the whole thing.
  2. It’s July. I live in North Carolina which means it’s about 90+ degrees every day. It’s hard for me to start thinking about fall boots and cardigans.
  3. I also feel like the sale prices haven’t really been that great the past few years. I encourage you to buy one pieces you LOVE and not fall into the trap of “oh, it’s on sale, so I should buy it”.
  4. AND last but not least. I HATE seeing something I’ve bought on 800 other people. I know everyone can style things differently, but at some point during the sale, you’re entire insta feed is the same basic look done 8392420 times.

So, because of this.. I’m choosing not to hit the sale hard. I picked 10 things I think are actually worth purchasing. I’ll most likely do a try on session this weekend at my local Nordstrom and that will be that.

Just to note – The sale for cardholders is live today. If you don’t have a Nordstrom card, the sale will go live the 19th.

  1. Blank Suede Skirt : I feel like this one is 100% going to sell out. I ordered a Medium, for a lower waisted fit. $64
  2. Sway Chambray Dress: I LOVE THIS. Can’t wait for it to come in. $64
  3. OTS Hot Pink Sweater (comes in 2 colors): I can’t say no to pink. $41
  4. Madewell Jeans: High Waisted. I paid full price for these, the fit is a dream. $85
  5. Marc Fisher OTK Boots: $160, great option, similar to the Stuart Weitzman Highland Boot
  6. Perfect Work Tote: $32
  7. Zella Work Out Pants: Maybe these will make me work out. Stay tuned. $38
  8. The Perfect Work Appropriate wear everyday studs: $64
  9. Leith Wrap Dress: SO FLATTERING.
  10. Wear to Work Jumpsuit: Can Dress up or down. Throw on and go. (This is my work wear love language) $71

Honorable Mentions:

  1. Black block heels that you will wear over and over: $64
  2. Great basic jean skirt: Zip front that makes it super flattering $58
  3. Joggers that will sell out because EVERY blogger has posted them. Not my fav $31
  4. Free People Esque Dress: $49. Must. Try. On.

Splurge Items:

  1. Someone tell me I don’t need this mirror to do my makeup : $250. Will my makeup look better, more even? Probably not. BUT I want.
  2. Sam Edelman Coat: I love it. I know some of you will hate it. $196.
  3. Patagonia Puffer: $199; price isn’t low enough for me to pull the trigger…

I’m gonna keep updating this as things sell out/ I find things I like. Stay tuned for my try on session tomorrow in store.
