And some will be going back, lol! But hey, that is why I LOVE shopping from Nordstrom, free shipping and free returns! Last week I shared some of the items I received and this week I have a few more. Of the three I am showing today I am only keeping one! And I’ll be completely honest I am a little on the fence about it too so we’ll see what happens.
First up is the cutest long cardigan from Billabong. While I don’t think I gravitate towards one style consistently I would have to say that this really is me. I love everything about it except the way it fit across the back. It was just a little snug for me (I ordered a medium) and going up in size would have made the rest too big. So it’s going back. And that was not a decision I reached easily, it hurt! When I’m wearing something from Billabong I feel a little like a middle school skater chick or surfer chick so there is definitely a part of me that says I’m too old to be wearing this but I really like it! Too bad we had to part company! So cute, yes? Wearing it with white denim and an olive green tee now but I could wear it in the fall and winter with burgundy denim, black, or darker denim and boots. Such high hopes!
Next up I am showing two items that I would not normally wear together but for the sake of pictures I did. After Diane raved about her Wit and Wisdom jeans I was curious and wanted to give them a try. I ordered the “Ab-Solution” Wit and Wisdom Skinny Jeans in black. Right now they are $44.90 and after the sale they’ll be $68.00. I found them to run true to size, I am wearing a size 4. I like the rise, no muffin top! They are also very thick and feel almost like wearing leggings. Actually they kind of feel like Spanx, they seriously hold you in tight – no jiggle! Here’s the thing – I like them a lot but they are so thick that I’m wondering if I could wear them year round. So the jury is still out on whether they stay or go (and now I am totally singing “Should I Stay or Should I Go ” by the Clash) #attentionissues #sorrynotsorry.
The top I am wearing is by Pleione. It comes in 15 colors and is on sale for $29.90, after the sale it will be $48.00. I probably picked the most unflattering color combination for my skin tone, the Blush,Black,Ruby Mirrored pattern looked way better online than on me. I think it would be very pretty on someone with a little more color than me! I ordered a size small and the fit was fine. I bought this top a few years ago in a different pattern and I like it so much! It is great either casually or dressed up.
Here are the links to the items in this post, unfortunately the long Billabong cardigan is sold out so I did not link it.
Have you shopped the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yet? Did you order anything or are you considering something? Tell me, I want to know! I hope you enjoyed finding out what’s in This Blonde’s Shopping Bag from the #Nsale!
