OK guys, the time has come! It is my absolute favorite sale ever! It time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!! If you don’t know what this is, it is a HUGE sale that Nordstrom holds where they put some of the new items and pieces for fall up, and at highly discounted prices. The sale is first open to card holders for early access, but is now open for everyone! Prices will go back up to original pries starting on August 7th…..So make sure if you want to shop, you go ASAP. A lot of things sell out quick so make sure if you really want something that you pick it up fast!
Last year, I was not really able to shop the sale too much, although I did order a few things online, and well…this year I find myself in the same position. I did however manage to go into stores this year and take a little look around during the early access…and they have so much good stuff!!!
If you didn’t know last year around this time, and the time of the sale, I was recovering from my first skin removal surgery due to losing over 300 pounds. This year, again during the sale, I am recovering from my 3rd and 4th skin removal surgery. Recovering from major surgeries was not going to stop me from at least purchasing a few pieces from this amazing sale. I worked too hard to be able to shop this sale, and surgery was not going to stand in my way…if you can’t tell I am very determined haha
Fashion is a huge part of my life and always has been. Weighing over 500 pounds, it stopped me from being able to fully live my life and be myself and fully let who I truly was shine trough, including how I dressed. Fashion became ordering the biggest sizes they offered online…and whatever color or style they had in stock. That was what determined what I would purchase and ultimately what I would wear. My love of shopping and fashion completely stopped. After I decided to start losing the weight and becoming myself again, I became determined to never have to order a size 6XL. I was determined to choose my own style and to be my own person and to actually be able to choose what I wanted to wear. Now, over 300 pounds lighter, the same love and passion for shopping and fashion is back and stronger than ever. Now if only my bank account would catch up to this love I have, then it would be perfect haha.
The Nordstrom Sale is a great time to treat yourself and get some new pieces. Last year during the sale I treated myself to a few new, more “trendy” pieces. Items that I loved and thought I would never be able to wear. But this year, I decided that I needed to stock up on the basics. Last winter, I had no sweaters or jackets that really fit anymore and my t-shirts were all too big. It is hard to keep buying new clothes all of the time, especially since my size kept changing. So I try and make due with what I have. So I waited for this sale, let me tell you, the wait was so worth it. I found so many items that I just love that I actually needed and well..maybe a few that I just couldn’t refuse and that just had to come home with me.
This is also a great time to get some new workout gear! Nike, Adidas, etc clothing and shoes are also part of the sale! So I decided to share some of my favorite items from this sale with you guys. What I also did is include some of my favorite plus size finds as well as my favorite plus size brands..becasue Nordstrom has a great plus size section as well. I actually know it very well. So hopefully this blog can give you some inspiration for a new item you can treat youself to, or like me, you can pick up some much needed basics. Maybe you pick a goal outfit and treat yourself to something that you will work towards fitting or having soon as a “treat” for hitting a small goal. Whatever or whoever you are shopping for, now is the best time to do it. So happy shopping my loves!!!
