It’s here! It started at 7 AM. No, I was not there. I have never gone at 7. It’s kind of like Black Friday. I don’t do that.
However, tonight I will be shopping at the Downtown Portland store. Can’t wait. I am going to share some of my top finds from my two trips to the pre-sale. I have tried on most of these picks. There will be more on my Facebook page. Next week–more choices from other departments.
I like to take it by department. Perhaps that is how my sequential brain works.
I like Point of View. I admire most everything in Individualist & Savvy but it is typically out of my price range unless I see it at The Rack or the Sale. I enjoy going to t.b.d for the wide array of denim and unique styles. I browse Narrative occasionally too.
I’ve covered most of the clothing departments so far and here is what I’ve found. First from Point of View. In this department you really won’t find many unique styles, but the price point allows you stock up on separates/basics you might need. The styles are classic/chic with a touch of romantic.
This brand tends to run a little small so keep that in mind. The striped cardigan is extremely flattering because of the peplum waist (and I don’t do stripes typically) I tried the petite size because I have short arms. It fit well and was not too short, nor did it hit my waist at the wrong place. The ‘Girlfriend” cardigan comes in a variety of colors. There is a fabulous shade of blue! Note they call this the girlfriend cardi which is taking the place of the “boyfriend” from last season and is a shorter version. Super cute.
At 45.90/47.90, these are a great buy. Not your typical uncomfortable pencil skirt. You can move AND breathe!
You just can’t beat a dark wash bootcut. Jag is a favorite brand for many women because the rise is “just right” At 39.90, it is a STEAL! Next are the infamous Michael Kors pants that I have suggested to so many women (Nordstrom should be paying me!) They are now in THREE colors: 49.90
(Note: must be worn with pumps as shown in photos or flats. The wrong shoes can make/break it with these pants)
Ok, there is so much more! Brands to look for in Point of View: Caslon and Halogen are Nordstrom signature brands.
Look for T Tahari (a new favorite), Vince Camuto (not just for shoes), Pleione, Bobeau, Blue Essence jeans, Kut from the Kloth
