Quick Sale Update – Nordstrom Half Yearly

Hi – just stopping in for a quick update as the Nordstrom Half Yearly sale has begun. I always shop this sale each year, though at this point the heavy hitters (aka designer) haven’t hit discount yet. It’s the rest of the departments – contemporary, non designer shoes, etc, that start with the sale. I always use this period to stock up on a few items for spring/summer, while biding my time for fancy sandals a few weeks later!

To that end, here are some of my selections from around the site – I’d recommend poking around the sale section where you’ll find a bunch of new markdowns (mixed in with existing ones – I recognized a lot of older items from sale PSAs, and tried not to include them).

1. DVF Orchid Silk wrap dress, now 40% off ($360). I think that DVF makes the most beautiful maxi dresses. It has to do with a combination of her prints and the fabric she uses. I became a believer when I saw a woman in Los Angeles in a gorgeous DVF dress which I had been eyeing online, only to realize it was Kris Jenner. Don’t judge!

2. Tory Burch Lucia espadrille, now 33% off ($124). Pretty espadrilles that look like the Valentino versions that won’t break the bank. I like that these are a tan mix for summer, without being completely white (I always get paranoid about my white shoes looking immediately dirty).

3. Stuart Weitzman Crackle metallic wedge sandal, now 40% off ($240). I really recommend these, they are comfortable and lengthen the legs due to the nude color. The crackle effect is subtle yet adds a little something special. They are reminiscent of the espadrilles that Jimmy Choo puts out each season in my opinion.

4. Halston Heritage Georgette gown, 40% off ($315). A beautiful statement gown that I think you could make formal or casual. Love the Greek goddess feel to it, will look gorgeous as you walk.

Elsewhere, I like the Sam Edelman “Gigi” sandals in bright calf half combinations for summer, now only $42, a Bobeau Split Dot Swiss dress that looks like a great office/casual dress, now under $40 (!!) a loose Eileen Fisher racerback knit dress for those who want to be super cool in summer, now $130, and the super popular Philosophy “Purity Made Simple” cleanser is now 30% off, but I think that may be a more limited time price matching promotion.

Happy shopping and please share your finds – I’ll continue to this post as well.

    The DVF dress is beautiful. I think Kris Jenner is a little old for it, but then I think a lot of her clothing is much to young for her! Fine line between classy and TRASHY!

      This is true…I think she has crossed that line a while ago, LOL.
