Nordie’s Anniversary Sale

Last week was more than hectic. It was downright depressing. A few things hit me all at once and “real talk” I just wasn’t in a good headspace to write. If you know me (IRL) then you know I’m an open book with writing on every page and in the margins so I’ll share a couple of the conclusions I came to about where I am at this point. 1) I am not doing enough of what makes me happy. 2) I am not currently challenging myself to change my situation.

Those may not seem like much to some, but at the moment they are the center of my world. With that said, next week’s post will likely be one where I share what steps I’ve started to take to move forward on  rectifying the aforementioned. Today’s post is one I’ve wanted to share with you guys though because I feel it’s a must. Without further delay…here is what I purchased at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have this exact blazer in a maroon/oxblood shade that I purchased from The Rack at a fraction of the cost. I love that thing so much that I didn’t mind paying triple of the clearance price to get this season’s version in black. It fits like a glove and the knitted material doesn’t suffocate my (newly acquired) fat arms.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It wouldn’t even be one of my posts if it didn’t include a beauty product right? I saw a review of this set on Temptalia’s blog and the colors looked too good to pass up. Hey, I may work at Sephora but that hasn’t slowed down my shopping for cosmetics from all brands.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Girl! (Or Boy) When I tell you that I had to wait a day and refresh my browser like 50 million times to get this top in the size (Medium) and color (Chili) that I wanted I am not kidding. When I finally managed it I didn’t even care that it was a separate order but the good news is…it is out for delivery today with my first order!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Needless to say I did the fool by signing up to become a Nordie’s card holder after the sale began so I missed out on early access which also means I missed out on first dibs on the good stuff. There is always, next year now that I do have a card. I pretty much live in my local Nordstrom Rack since it’s around the corner from my office job. Despite the fact that I shopped the anniversary sale I still ended up there last Wednesday (payday) after work.

I picked up two tops from Pleione and RO & DE which are two brands that are quickly beginning to fill up my closet. The Pleione top is more of a light sweatshirt material and will be perfect going into autumn.

The RO & DE top is chiffon and flowy which is still perfect for this time of year. It will be wearable at least until late October. Dallas is always boiling hot until at least then, sometimes clear until December! I hope you enjoyed seeing my purchases. I enjoyed sharing them with you. What did you buy at the Nordie’s sale this year or did you skip it?

Dallas Gets a NYX Store!

Receiving employment update emails from large cosmetic companies is part of my weekly norm. I have wanted to work for L’Oreal in particular for some time now and I get their updates all the time. Most of them are positions I am not qualified for at this time or in areas I have no desire to relocate to. Imagine my surprise when I open last week’s email and there are some new positions available in Dallas. Specifically at a location near my home with a brand I had no idea was coming to the DFW area. Seriously, I used to think that we never got anything because Houston seemed to always one up us. Apparently things are changing for “Baby New York” as my grandpa used to fondly refer to the big D. I by no means think we are on a New York status but the birth place of Neiman Marcus is on the up-rise.

Dallas’ Northpark Center is one of the largest shopping malls in Dallas proper, and getting bigger all the time. Joining us this Summer is NYX Cosmetics! Their stores have already graced other large cities like New York, Los Angeles, and Austin with their presence. My email from L’Oreal advertised management positions with the upcoming store. However, I have no intent to leave Sephora at this time. I’m kind of loyal like that! Although, that isn’t going to stop my makeup addicted self from shopping till I drop. If you live in the Metroplex will you be checking out the new NYX store? Let me know in the comments!
