Nordstrom Sale – Honest Review
What I’m Keeping & Returning
If you saw my post on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale then you saw what I ordered. Today I want to do a try on post and share with you what i’m keeping and returning. I also want to give my honest review of some of the items that have been on every bloggers recommended list.
Free People Saturday Morning Cardigan – KEEP!
Sale Price: $98.90
Reg Price: $148.00
Thoughts: I have seen this cardigan EVERYWHERE and to be honest I was really sick of seeing so many bloggers promote it. So naturally I ordered it to see what the hype was about and you guys! I LOVE THIS CARDIGAN! It’s the perfect grandma / grandpa slouchy sweater. It runs big so size down. I’m normally a M/L and I’m wearing the XS/S. I wouldn’t say that it’s the warmest sweater b/c of the open stitch– but for the Southern California weather, it’s perfect.
B.P Lace Trim Camisole – RETURN!
Sale Price: $22.90
Reg Price: ?
Thoughts: This was another huge blogger favorite and I’m not sure what the hype is all about b/c the quality is similar to a camisole you would find at Forever21. It’s definitely not the best quality cami that I would invest in. I actually prefer the (Sale Price: $38.90) 1.State camisole over this one.
B.P Raw Edge Scoop Neck Tee – RETURN!
Sale Price: $18.90
Reg Price: $29.00
Thoughts: Another blogger favorite is this basic long sleeve t-shirt. I like to invest in my basics b/c I wear then over and over again and this material is so cheap that I know it wont be the same after one wash. The t-shirt is on the thinner side and the sizing runs a bit small so I would size up if you’re interested. I also want to make a note that the black and white stripe is not a true white stripe. It’s more of a black and creamy yellow stripe which I don’t prefer.
Dreamers Cardigan – KEEP!
Sale Price: $35.90
Reg Price: N/A
Thoughts: I haven’t seen too many bloggers talk about this cardigan but I love it! I admit I went a little cardigan crazy this year and between this one and the Free People one, I think I’m done for the year. This one is definitely softer, warmer and cozier than the FP. Unfortunately this sweater is all sold out but hopefully they’ll restock b/c I think it’s a great price point for a slouchy sweater.
B.P Raw Edge V-Neck Tee – RETURN!
Sale Price: $11.90
Return Price: $17.90
Thoughts: My review on this t-shirt is similar to the Long Sleeve Scoop T-shirt above. The quality isn’t the best and it feels like something you could find at Forever21. You definitely get what you pay for. Again I like to invest in my basics so this will be going back.
B.P Plaid Shirt – RETURN!
Sale Price: $31.90
Reg Price: $49.00
Thoughts: This plaid shirt looks so cute on other bloggers but to be honest, it’s just ok in person. There’s nothing bad about it. It’s on the thinner side so it’ll be good for layering during the fall time. My only negative thing about this plaid shirt is the length– I wish it was a tad bit longer (i’m 5’5 for reference). Regarding sizing, If you want a more relaxed look, I would recommend sizing up. I’m returning this b/c I feel like I have something similar and better already in my closet.
Halogen Cashmere Scarf – RETURN!
Sale Price: $98.90
Reg Price: $149.00
Thoughts: I’m a sucker for cashmere so when I saw this scarf I immediately ordered it. Unfortunately I was disappointed with the quality. The scarf is VERY thin and fails to have the luxurious cashmere feel– I doubt this will keep my neck warm. It’s also a large square size and not like your typical long rectangle size. I don’t think this is a good deal for a cashmere scarf.
Steve Madden Trace Studded Mule – KEEP!
Sale Price: $49.90
Reg Price: $79.95
Halogen Violet Calf Hair Mule – KEEP!
Sale Price: $64.90
Reg Price: $99.95
Thoughts: Slip on mules have been my go-to. I love how comfortable they are and I think they look great when styled with denim jeans. These studded mules have been a popular favorite and for good reason. I love the mustard color and I thought it would be a great neutral for fall. The leopard mules I originally was going to return but after wearing them around in the house over and over again, I changed my mind. Because I wear so many basic and neutral colors during the fall season, I think these mules will add a stylish pop to my outfit.
