Closet Confessions - Nordstrom - Anniversary Sale


Today I ventured out to the burbs where the closest Nordstrom is from the city and checked out all the Anniversary Sale items. I gotta admit, the selection Nordstrom offers here is a bit weak which just reinforces how vital online shopping is {never mind the two hours of traffic it took me to get home}. I tried on lots of items but only are sharing a few favorites and at the very bottom you can see what made it into my shopping cart as I decide which items I absolutely love!

First up, this DVF sweater was heavenly. It has a great cowl neck collar that isn't too stiff nor too droopy. I loved that only the cuffs and hem were ribbed. I find that anything ribbed on my chest just makes my already ample top look too heavy. This was a size medium & I would suggest it runs true to size. 


Since I am soul cycle obsessed I always want new work out gear. This little tank & coordinating sports bra came home with me today for Sunday's class. I am wearing a L in the  top & XL in the bra. I felt they ran a little small but I am also heavy in the chest area so I generally size up in work out clothes.


I just cannot pull off that half tuck if my life depended on it. I always think it looks so cool on others then I do & I feel like a dang fool. I however loved this sleeveless blouse for it's loose fit subtle print in black and white. Perfect for work or play. I am wearing a large and had no issues with the buttons on my chest causing a gap. 


This Vince striped car coat is like wearing a blanket. Therefore it makes me want to sit on the couch with a  glass of wine and a great book. I also loved the Vince blouse {similar style for much less} I tried on with it but isn't part of the sale. This coat runs super big. I am wearing a medium and it was huge. I also hate that it didn't have pockets or a tie closure. 


This sweater vest was so fun. I love the split sides and the uneven hem. It worked really well with this comfy t-shirt that had the same style. I feel like this would be super cute with knee boots and leggings for a comfy weekend look come fall. Wearing a large in both & run true to size.


This Vince coat was one of my favorite items I tried on. This was a medium and it was just right. I however only had a silk blouse on under it so I may size up for layering with sweaters. It's an oversized fit so it's up to you the look you want. 


This Joie top looks horrible online but looks so much better in person. It's a bit sheer so it will require a camp of some kind if you are like me. This is a large and I would say it runs true to size. 


This Joie leopard print cardigan was super soft and the grey tones were right up my ally. I am wearing a medium and would suggest it runs true to size. I paired it with a grey Equipment sweater also in a size Medium, that isn't part of the anniversary sale but is marked down!


Last but not least was this side zip Vince sweater. I love this sweater but they only had a size small which I am wearing and is way too small on me. I also feel that someone with my chest size should avoid ribbed sweaters all together. One day I will get my reduction and be free from these monsters on my body.

What I wanted to try on & wasn't available in store is below. Now to the important job of narrowing it down to only one or two items!
