Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017: Dressing Room Diaries

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 dressing room diaries

Happy Friday!! Alright ya’ll, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 is officially open to the public!  I hit up my local store a couple times this week, and I thought it would be fun to take you guys shopping with me. Even though I purchase most online, I still love to go in store and see things up close and personal.  I always find items that I totally skimmed over online and end up loving!

My store was already slim pickings on sizes for some things.  My plan for this is to grab the next size to see if I like the overall look and fit and then order online. I’m sharing the sizes I am wearing in the photos, and how I felt about the fit of each for you. For a few pieces, I’m also sharing a few thoughts and opinions.

I hope ya’ll enjoy my dressing room diaries and Happy Nordstrom Sale Shopping!

Fall Outfit | Plaid Off the Shoulder Top | Hudson Jeans | Lady in Violet | Houston Fashion Blogger

Off the Shoulder Plaid Top (Size M / Fit I’d prefer a Small) |  Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)

IN LOVE with this top! It’s so soft and very easy to move in for an off the shoulder style.  The fit was a little big, but it still held up on my shoulders.

I was considering a black pair from this jean brand, so I tried these on just for fit and fell in love! They are comfy but still super skinny.

Winter Outfit | Burgundy Cold Shoulder Sweater | Dark Skinny Jeans | Lady in Violet | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Burgundy Cold Shoulder Tunic Sweater (Size S / Fit Runs Big)  |Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)

This sweater is so cute and cozy, but definitely runs really big!!  It also comes in black.

Winter Outfit | Ruffle Cold Shoulder Sweater | Nordstrom Anniversay Sale 2017 | Lady in Violet

Black Ruffle Cold Shoulder Sweater (Size S / Fit TTS)

A lightweight sweater perfect for early winter/late fall.  Also comes in a light purple.

Fall Outfit | Maroon Long Cardigan | White Tee | Layered Outfit | Lady in Violet

** Top Seller of the Sale**  Long Maroon Cardigan (Size XS /  Fit I went down a size to XS)

I had to stop myself from buying all the colors, love this cardigan!  It’s been a popular and quick seller.

Casual Outfit | Ruffle Sleeveless Top | Dark Skinny Jeans | Lady in Violet | Houston Style Blogger

Gray Ruffle Sleeveless Blouse  (Size S / Fit TTS)

Fall Outfit | Black Cold Shoulder Blouse | Suede Mini Skirt | Lady in Violet

Black Cold Shoulder Blouse (Size M / Fit A little bulky in the middle might order a S)  |  Suede Mini Skirt (Size 27 / Fit TTS)

This skirt is the most fabulous thing I tried on.  It fit like a glove.

Fall Outfit | Red Plaid Top | Hudson Skinny Jeans | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Plaid Tunic (Size S / Fit TTS but VERY long)  |  Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)

This plaid has a super cute floral print mixed in on the sleeves and back, but it was just WAY too long for me.

Fall Outfit | Striped Off the Shoulder Button down top | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

Striped Off the Shoulder Button Down Top (Size M / Fit No give in the off the shoulder portion, and M was a little tight and L too big)

This top will either fit or it won’t.   I found the medium to be a bit too snug, and the L was too big on my arms.

Cocktail Holiday Dress | White Lace Shift Dress | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale White Lace Dress ( Size S /  Fit TTS, but not meant for a petite 5’3 gal – too long)

Fall Outfit | Purple Off the Shoulder Top | Skinny Jeans | Lady in Violet | Houston Fashion Blogger

Purple Off the Shoulder Top (Size S / Fit TTS)

Ok, I think this top is so much prettier in person.  It’s a gorgeous satin material with a great loose fit.

Winter Outfit | Long Beige Cardigan | Casual Outfit | Lady in Violet

Long Beige Duster Cardigan (Size XS / Fit I sized down to XS)  |  Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)

Soft, Warm and Cozy, all the things a cardigan should be.

Work Outfit | Gingham Fit and Flare Dress | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

Plaid Fit and Flare Dress (Size 4 / Fit TTS)

I liked the overall fit and look of this dress, but it had some odd darting on the drop waist portion that just was off on me.

Winter Outfit | Black Cold Shoulder Blouse Maroon Skinny Jeans | Lady in Violet

Black Cold Shoulder Blouse (Size M / Fit a little bulky in the middle might order a S)  |  Maroon Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)

This jean brand can do no wrong, and these jeans are a testament to that.  Perfect fit and gorgeous color.

Fall Layered Outfit | Cardigan | White Tee | Dark Skinny Jeans | Lady in Violet | Houston Style Blogger

Cardigan (Size S / Fit TTS)  |  Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)

I grabbed this cardigan without looking at the price tag….  It’s really cute, high quality, and comfy, but not worth the $100 tag in my opinion.

Work Outfit | Floral Dress | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Floral Work Dress (Size XS / Fit I sized down to XS)

Fall Casual Outfit | Yellow Striped Tee | Dark Skinny Jeans | Lady in Violet | Houston Style Blogger

Yellow Striped Tee (Size S / Fit TTS)  | Dark High Waist Skinny Jeans (Size 27 / Fit TTS)

I want all the colors of this tee!! Love the fit of it.  I was worried it would be see through, but I didn’t notice my bra in this lighter shade. You can see the darker jean color peeking through though.  I might also buy the scoopneck version.

Fall Outfit | Black Sleeveless Turtleneck | Suede Skirt | Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Black Turtleneck Blouse (Size M / Fit Runs Big – I think I need an XS)  |  Suede Skirt (Size 27 / Fit TTS)

Oh did I mention the skirt has pockets!!!!

There you go, a tiny peek into my shopping trip at Nordstrom.  I had a few misses including this jacket which was WAY too big.  I tried on the XS and it swallowed me.  Also, these jeans were cute but the fit was just a tad unflattering on me and too long maybe if I went down one size.  This sweater was a huge NO!  The extra long sleeves were just too much for me.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoyed this post.  As I mentioned yesterday, it’s way different than my normal posts, but I thought it would be really fun to share the shopping side and not just the end result of pretty outfit idea pictures.  You can see more of my favorite pics over on my Nordstrom Sale page.
