fall sales worth knowing about: burberry & shoes galore!

There’s a lot of good sale news happening today, friends, and I’d never be able to look you in the monitor if I didn’t share it right away. First, there’s a massive shoe clearance going on at Nordstrom this week. Sure, you’ll have to fight your way through a selection of summer sandals and such, but if you keep your eyes peeled, there are some gorgeous fall shoes you’ll be stoked to get your hands on (not to mention plenty of glitzy sandals that will be perfect when the holidays roll around). Also, a pretty amazing selection of classic black pumps, should you happen to be in need. I’ve taken the liberty of picking a few favorites:

If those picks aren’t enough for you, I’ve done a little creative search-narrowing. So, instead of wading through the 2,000+ choices, just click here, select your shoe size (to avoid almost certain heartbreak), and you’ll have your pick of the cream of the crop!

So, there’s that. But then, I got an email from The Outnet. And they have a pretty stellar new crop of Burberry in stock that’s marked down by at least half. I’m just saying, when life offers you a Burberry cashmere peacoat for $500, you take it! But you’ll have to fight me for that navy cardigan-coat. As is always the case at The Outnet, these babies will sell fast, so don’t deliberate for too long.

As if that weren’t enough Burberry news, Nordstrom’s marked down their fair share of Brit goodies for you too, and just in time for fall.

I’m off to fill my shopping cart, and you should be too…but don’t forget to come back and tell me what you nabbed!

My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks, via shopping's my cardio

{Editor’s Note: Back to our regularly scheduled cardio next week, I promise. Plus, I’ll have big news. Huge. You’re going to love it. Meet me back here Monday?}

Happy Friday, friends! Or, perhaps more importantly, Happy-First-Day-of-the-Nordstrom-Anniversary-Sale for those of you who couldn’t shop Early Access. Now that everyone‘s getting their shop on, I thought we’d try something new this weekend. How about we chat in the comments about all of the goodies you nabbed in the sale? I’ll show you mine if you show me yours!  Read on

phoned-in friday

Friends, I have literally shopped until I dropped. Two separate trips to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, and a third one on the way (I like to take the Hubs in separately, lest he see the full extent of the damage I do solo). On trip #2, I managed to throw my back out while wrestling myself into a silk shirt that was mislabeled as a M (it was an XS, I swear it was). Talk about cardio!

{Why do I do this to myself? The thing is, while the Sale’s not packed with pieces that are particularly “exciting”, it is chock full of workhorses. Truly, the pieces I buy this week are the ones I wear nonstop all fall and winter. Are you the same way?} 

So, as I sit here with a heating pad on my back until my painkillers kick in, I’ll leave you with a few links worth investigating.

  • Janna Conner, one of my very favorite jewelry ladies, is offering 40% off sitewide through 7/17 with code SU13 (only 20% off the fine jewelry). I just got her beautiful lapis coin earrings, and it was all I could do not to order these ones too. Her quality is outstanding, and her prices are amazing – especially now.
  • My sweet friends at Woonwinkel in Portland are having their annual summer sale, and it starts today. If you’re into modern design, you’ll most definitely want to take a look. I really, so badly, want this knitted basket. And remember that gorgeous clock from my house redo? Half off, baby! 
  • I don’t care what anyone says, I think these gladiator sandal/boot things are just terrible. Am I alone?
  • Really feeling all of the relaxed, easy weekend wear in this post. If only the rest of us could make rumpled look so chic. 
  • I’ve been Insta-crazy this week – you should definitely check it out. If nothing else, you’ll get a peek at my newly-revamped shoe closet (also known as: proof that I may need to buy something other than ballet flats) and the cutest dog on the planet

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! I’ll see you back here on Monday, with an exciting new collaboration to tell you about. You’re going to love it!

nordstrom anniversary sale 2013: pre-game strategy

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale teaser, via shopping's my cardio

It’s time, friends! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! (well, if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, it’s here…if you’re not, you’re just annoyed that everyone else is pre-shopping and you’re left out. Sartorial politics, I tell you.) By now, my annual guide has become a bit of a tradition, so I hope you’re as excited as I am to show off my picks from the best of the sale. I’ll have those for you bright and early tomorrow morning.

But first, a little pre-game strategy session. Pre-sale starts tomorrow, 7/10, and it opens up to everyone on 7/19. If you’re dying to shop early, just go get a Nordstrom Debit card and be done with it. It attaches to your debit card, no credit check, no heinous interest rates – easy peasy.

Even if you’re not a cardholder, I have a little treat for you. You can peruse the entire catalog here, right now!

Now, let me tell you about the designer insert. Not everyone got this special 12-page booklet in the front of their catalog – a little birdie told me these picks are virtually guaranteed to sell out during pre-sale, and I couldn’t even get advance photos to show you. But, I can tell you that the standouts from these limited pieces are a fantastic Vince cardigan with leather trim, and two Rag & Bone boots – one of which is the Harlow in black suede, and it’s gorgeous.

You can officially start shopping at midnight tonight (Pacific time), and I’ll be back first thing in the morning with links to all of my favorites. Stay tuned!
