It’s one of my favorite times of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I LOVE shopping, this sale, for many reasons. First reason, and maybe the most obvious is that everything is on sale! It’s not like a regular sale where they old items and things that no one is buying, they are brand new items for the fall at a discounted price. The sale is only running through August 4, and on August 5th, prices go back up to the regular price. If you see something that you love, pick it up and fast!!! Things do sell out VERY quickly but make sure to keep checking the site and in-store if something that you love is sold out! Nordstrom might restock some items or if people return items you may be able to grab them.
The other reason that I love this sale is that along my journey of losing over 300 pounds, I loved treating myself to new items as little treats and rewards along the way. Also since my body was changing, and is changing so much, getting items that are good quality but not the full price is great!
Why do I Shop This Sale?
There was a time when I weighed over 500 pounds that the only kind of shopping I could do was online and I could only get what fit my body. Being someone who is truly into fashion and who loves expressing my self through what I wear, this was very hard for me. Even being able to shop in-store and treat myself to new pieces is not only fun but a huge non-scale victory for me. Let me just say, non-scale victories, no matter how small they may seem to someone else, always seem to mean the most.
So, I know I mentioned items sell out super fast, that’s why I waited to put this blog post up until after public access opened and everyone could shop and it gave me time to re-shop and find the pieces I love that are still in stock. So all of the items are currently available as of when I am putting this blog up. I wanted to share items that I loved, but that you could also check out and actually purchase yourself. I wanted to make sure that items are available and not have everything say, sold out, which is know is SO FRUSTRATING!!!
What do I shop for?
I am going to be sharing my top fashion picks from the sale, my top plus-size options, accessories, and shoes. It is so important to me to always share plus size items because as I was losing weight and following my favorite fashion bloggers I was so sad that everything they were sharing never fit me, and I wished they would be able to come shop with me and help me pick out some cute plus-sized options. Now, I hope to be that friend for you, the one who will always share plus-size options so we can all shop together regardless of size.
I also wanted to share my top shoe and accessories picks not only because during this sale they have some amazing items, but because until I was able to fit in clothes, even in the plus-size section, I loved treating myself to shoes and accessories since that always fit. I could even shop for shoes and accessories in-store if I wanted to. So for me, sharing items that will absolutely work for everyone is a must! Like I said I know what it feels like to feel left out, and I don’t want anyone to feel that way when you are with me.
For the shoes, I stuck with a lot of comfy shoes and sneakers. That is what works best from and my body. I am recovering from skin removal surgery on my legs so I wanted some cute and comfy sneakers to wear this fall. Also, boots do not work for me. I have larger calves and ankles and my lower part of my legs are covered in loose skin. Boots, just do not work. So I did not include many, HOWEVER, I did find some super cute boots that I LOVE if you want to check them out. I included them even though I cannot wear them, but if you can I hope you will rock them for both of us!!
Lets get Shopping
OK, I think that is all of the information I wanted to share. This is more than just a sale to me, and I really want this to be a time where you can treat yourself to some new items and feel confident in who you are. Even if we are working on some changes, does not mean we cannot love and feel confident with who, and where we are today.
I hope you have fun shopping this sale if you so choose and if you have questions, need help styling a piece or putting an outfit together or want me to keep my eyes out for items that me be out of stock, comment below or on my social media and I will try to help you out as best I can!
Lots of love to you all and happy shopping!!!
