The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally open to the public and everyone can now shop the sale. I’m sure most of you have been waiting anxiously to get started or maybe your part of the group that isn't shopping because you think that everything is just way too expensive. Whatever category you’re in, just know that you don’t have to spend your whole paycheck to enjoy the deals.  The Anniversary Sale offers a little something for everyone and you can have fun shopping even on a budget. I have a few tips for you to help you stay on track and not go into debt in the process. Check out my tips below and shop my top picks of what's left all under $50. 

And if you have a chance, then check out a few of my previous posts for some more #Nsale inspiration: Fitting Room Review (Part II)Fitting Room Reviews (Part I) and  #NSale Top Picks. Happy Shopping!!!!

1. INVEST IN FALL BASICS
This is the best time to stock up on basic and timeless pieces that you’ll be able to mix and match to create multiple looks. These basics include transitional pieces that you can wear now in the summer and then later in the fall season. For example, short sleeve tops that can be layered under a cardigan or a slipdress that can be worn with a light jacket.  You can also look fall trend pieces like boots, button-down plaids or even a moto jacket.  Even though they are considered trendy, these are quintesstial fall wardrobe staples.  So think about what items you need right now? Do you need to update your closet? Do you need new t-shirts or layering long-sleeve tees? Do you need new jeans? Do you need new flats or booties?  If you’re on a budget, then you should focus on filling your closet with these key pieces instead of the trendy or more expensive pieces.

The Anniversary Sale is also the best time to stock up on your day-to-day beauty products.

Moody Style: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Fitting Room Reviews (Part II)

Here is Part II of my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale fitting room reviews. Check out my photos below to see the links for each item I tried on along with size references and product reviews. And just as a reference I am 5’7 and 151 lbs. If you have any questions about sizing or about a particular item shown in this post, please let me know. I’ll be happy to help out! And if you have a chance, then check out my previous posts for some more #Nsale inspiration: Fitting Room Reviews (Part I) and  #NSale Top Picks. Happy Shopping!!!!

Polka Dot Culotte Jumpsuit {Now: $52.90 / Reg: $80.00} 
I don't own too many Topshop pieces in my closet, but when I saw this culotte jumpsuit I tried it on immediately. I love the polka dots, the wide legs and the strappy neckline, but this just did not fit my body correctly.  I always have trouble finding a jumpsuit that fits me perfectly and this one did not help my quest to finding the perfect jumpsuit.  This one had too much extra material in the torso area, but it fit everywhere else. I think this is one of those jumpsuits that you have to try on to see if it works. (size reference: size 8

High/Low Ruffle Shift Dress {Now: $41.90 / Reg: $64.00} 
I'm loving the look of this high/low dress and this color is just perfect.  I think the fit of this dress is pretty true to size, but you may want to size up to have a little more room around the hips and thighs. This dress barely fit me, but the next size up would have been too big in the bust area. If you're looking for a great dress to wear to the office during the day and then straight to happy hour at night, then this is your dress. (size reference: small

Scallop Edge Sweater {Now: $39.90 / Reg: $59.00} 
Are you guys loving this scallop sweater as much as I am?  I mean how cute is this? I love the scallop detail on the neckline and the hemline of this top - it just makes it so playful.  I'm also loving the 3/4 sleeve too.  This top isn't too heavy either, so you could definite wear it now especially in a cold office buildings.  The fit of this sweater is true to size and it also comes in several fun colors. Right now all of the sizes are sold out, but I'm really hoping they restock everything when the sale opens to the public tomorrow.  Because I really want to get the light pink one too. Do you all have any favorite colors right now? (size reference: smallBOUGHT IT!

Sarah Skinny Jeans {Now: $41.90 / Reg: $64.00}
You guys need to get these jeans!!! I have them in white and I've been wearing the heck out them this summer.  So these dark wash skinny jeans were a definite must have for me to bring me into the fall season If you're looking for a trendier pair of jeans without paying a high price tag, then these jeans will be perfect for you. The fit is true to size. (size reference: size 29BOUGHT IT!


Lace-Up Back Knit Tank {Now: $38.90 / Reg: $59.00}
I really wish that I took a picture of the back of this sweater tank because it's everything.  The front of the top is pretty & simple and the back has an edgy lace-up detailing that you can't ignore.  This top is also a great top to transition from day to night and summer to fall.  You can also layer it with the right jacket or cardigan for a crisp fall day.  The fit is true to size and it only comes in one color. (size reference: small)

Raw Edge Side Slit Tee {Now: $15.90 / Reg: $24.00}
This super soft tee is a definite must have for the fall season.  It comes in 6 colors and has raw edges and slits on the side to create the perfect draping. This top is perfect on its own and for layering under jackets and cardigans. I also think the fit is true to size.  I normally wear a small in my tops and the small worked for me. It is a relaxed, slouchy fit, so some of you may want to size down for a more tailored look depending on your style.So far I only grabbed this white one, but I'm really thinking about snagging a couple more. However, I just realized that laundry instructions say that this top is dry clean only.  This could cause an issue for some people since it's another added expense for maintenance. If you're looking for an alternative, check out this one HERE. (size reference: smallBOUGHT IT!

Rib Stitch Cardigan {Now: $31.90 / Reg: $49.00} 
This is the best time to stock up on sweaters and cardigans like this one. Last year, the BP brand had a similar oversized cardigan and it sold out pretty fast.  I'm not sure if Nordstrom is going to restock this one, but if they do, then you try to snag one.  Its really comfortable and a perfect layering piece for just about any outfit.  The cardigan comes in 5 colors and most of the sizes are sold out right now, but hopefully they will be restocked by the time the sale opens up to the public. I bought the beige oatmeal and the grey colored one and I bought it in my normal size.  I probably could have sized down to an extra small, but I liked the way the small looked on me. (size reference: smallBOUGHT IT!    

Distressed Girlfriend Jeans {Now: $58.90 / Reg: $88.00}
I completely overlooked these jeans on the first day of the sale, but I'm so glad that I found them. I fell in love with the fit of these jeans - they are not as baggy as a boyfriend fit and they are a little looser than a pair of skinny jeans.  And I love the distressing and the exposed hemline too.  I think these jeans run a little big, so I would size down like I did here. (size reference: size 28BOUGHT IT!
  
Plaid Square Scarf {Now: $24.90 / Reg: $38.00} 
If you saw my collection of blanket scarves, then you already know that I don't need to buy anymore.  BUT, this one was too good to pass up and the price was just right, so this one came home with me.  This beauty is a true blanket scarf square measuring in at 54 inches.  It's super soft and the burgundy, navy and gold colors in the plaid design are perfect for fall. (size reference: one sizeBOUGHT IT!
  
 Pocket Long Sleeve Tee {Now: $18.90 / Reg: $29.00}
 This long sleeve striped tee is perfect for layering. I didn't think I needed to get any more striped tops, but I couldn't want to miss out on this one. This tee will look perfect with a scarf or just a light jacket for a cute fall look. This top is pretty light-weight and has a loose, slouchy fit that drapes perfectly. The fabric in this tee is also really soft and it fits true to size. It comes in (6) other colors including this white striped one, but it keeps selling out. However, I found a similar white one for $19 HERE. (size reference: smallBOUGHT IT!

 Faux Leather & Suede Satchel {Now: $52.90 / Reg: $79.95}
I love this mix of faux leather and suede satchel.  This handbag is a great one to wear now and then transition into the fall season later. It's really roomy and has a shoulder strap for another styling option. This satchel also comes in black, if you're not really feeling this color. (size reference: one sizeBOUGHT IT!

Checkmate Fringe Scarf {Now: $38.90 / Reg: $59.50}
This is another scarf that I'm really loving right now.  The checkered print of navy, orange and cream adds just the right pop of color to any fall look.  I love how it changes the entire look of my outfit in the previous picture. All I need to do is add some boots and I'm ready for a cool fall day. 

Faux Wrap Maxi Dress {Now: $35.90 / Reg: $55.00} 
I love the boho charm of this faux wrap dress. The ruffled sleeves and the bow-tie waist belt adds a feminine and romantic feel to the dress.  The colors in this dress are perfect for fall and would look fantastic with a suede jacket or a cardigan for layering. The fit of this dress is about true to size for a junior dress. If you're in between sizes, then I recommend sizing up. (size reference: medium)

Moody Style: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Fitting Room Reviews (Part I)

Happy Saturday Friends! Did you all survive the first couple of days of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I have to admit - I didn't think that I was going to find as many things as I did this year, but boy was I wrong. On the first day of shopping, I was pretty satisfied with my initial purchase, but as the sale continues I keep finding more and more new pieces - like today I just discovered this top and this top. Between my online orders and my in-store purchases I'm going to need to attend a shopping anonymous meeting ASAP :)  Anyways, I wanted to share with you what I’ve picked up and all the items I tried on so far at my local Nordstrom store. 

Check out my photos below to see the links for each item I tried on along with size references and product reviews. And just as a reference I am 5’7 and 151 lbs. If you have any questions about sizing or about a particular item shown in this post, please let me know. I’ll be happy to help out!  Have you all bought anything from the sale yet? What are some of your favorites? Let me know what you think in the comments below! And if you have a chance, then check out my #NSale Top Picks in my previous post. Happy Shopping!!!!

Perfectly Victorian Minidress {Now: $109.90 / Reg: $168.00}
I've been obsessed with this dress ever since I saw one of my favorite bloggers wear it last year in a bright blue color.  So when I saw this one show up on the sale, I knew that I had to get it.  This is one of my favorite purchases from the sale so far and I'm sure you can see why.  This dress definitely has a boho vibe and the colors in the embroidery are just perfect for fall.  A great thing about this dress is that you can wear it now with some sandals and then later with some cute booties like these HERE. This dress will also pair well with a cardigan or a denim jacket to complete the look. As far as sizing goes, I think that this dress runs a little big and you can probably go down a size.  If you're tall and you need a little length, then you should go up a size.  I didn't try on a small because I was happy with the fit of the medium. This dress is also available in white. (size reference: medium) BOUGHT IT!


Easy Circle Cardigan {Now: $49.90 / Reg: $75.00}
This is another item that I'm pretty happy that I bought on Wednesday. I missed out on it last year because it sold out, so jumped at the chance to get one now.  It comes in maroon, dark grey, oatmeal and this beautiful blush color.  This cardigan is super soft and will compliment just about every outfit. I think the fit is true to size. (size reference: smallBOUGHT IT!

Asymmetrical Slipdress {Now: $35.90 / Reg: $55.00}
I loved the lace trim neckline of this dress and the asymmetrical hemline added a little flair to the traditional look of a slipdress.  This dress has a matte finished look to it and it's a curve-skimming dress.  So if you want the dress a little loose then size up. I tried on both the size 6 and the size 8 to see how different both dresses looked.  The size 6 dress was a perfect fit if you don't mind the showing your curves.  The size 8 dress was looser all around but gave a lot of extra fabric in the midsection.  So it really depends on how you like to wear your dresses (size reference: size 8)

Lace Trim Satin Camisole {Now: $22.90 / Reg: $35.00}
 I was really surprised how much I liked this camisole and you can't beat the price either.  The quality of this camisole is so good that it looks like you spent a lot more than $22. This camisole is a perfect layer piece for the fall too - it pairs well with so many cardigans and jackets. I liked this one so much that I bought it in both the black and the white color.  It also comes in green, but I figured that I'll get more wear out of the two colors.  The fit is true to size. (size reference: smallBOUGHT IT!


Distressed Girlfriend Jeans {Now: $58.90 / Reg: $88.00}
I completely overlooked these jeans on the first day of the sale, but I'm so glad that I found them. I fell in love with the fit of these jeans - they are not as baggy as a boyfriend fit and they are a little looser than a pair of skinny jeans.  And I love the distressing and the exposed hemline too.  I think these jeans run a little big, so I would size down like I did here. (size reference: size 28BOUGHT IT!


Lace Top {Now: $49.90 / Reg: $75.00}
This lace top is so pretty and I love it so much that I ended up buying it in both the pink and the white one. I'm just a little torn on which color I should keep. Any thoughts? I'm leaning towards keeping the pink one and I'm bummed that I forgot to take a picture of the white one.  The top has a neutral lining, but it's sheer above the yoke or the V portion of the top.  I think a nude bra or tank top would be perfect under this top if you need it. The fit is true to size. (size reference: smallBOUGHT IT!

Peplum Shirt {Now: $38.90 / Reg: $59.00}
I'm a sucker for anything peplum and stripes lately, so I just had to try on this shirt. This top comes in (2) other colors/prints and the fit is true to size.  This top is also offered in petite and plus sizes. Although this top didn't come home with me the other day, it may make its way later if the sizes are still available. (size reference: small)

 Pocket Long Sleeve Tee {Now: $18.90 / Reg: $29.00}
This long sleeve striped tee is perfect for layering.  I didn't think I needed to get any more striped tops, but I couldn't want to miss out on this one. This tee will look perfect with a scarf or just a light jacket for a cute fall look. This top is pretty light-weight and has a loose, slouchy fit that drapes perfectly.  The fabric in this tee is also really soft and it fits true to size.  It comes in (6) other colors including a white striped one, but it's the white one is sold out. However, I found a similar white one for $19 HERE. (size reference: smallBOUGHT IT!

Sarah Skinny Jeans {Now: $41.90 / Reg: $64.00}
You guys need to get these jeans!!! I have them in white and I've been wearing the heck out them this summer.  So these dark wash skinny jeans were a definite must have for me to bring me into the fall season If you're looking for a trendier pair of jeans without paying a high price tag, then these jeans will be perfect for you. The fit is true to size. (size reference: size 29BOUGHT IT!

Lace Detail Sweatshirt {Now: $45.90 / Reg: $69.00}
This top didn't come home with me, but it was very close.  This sweatshirt is just too cute and the fit was perfect.  It's a very soft terry knit pullover and it also comes in navy. This looks great with jeans and sandals for now and booties for later. (size reference: small)

Camo Tee {Now: $31.90 / Reg: $49.00}
If you've been around my blog long enough, then you know that I love me a camo print, so this top was a no-brainer. This t-shirt is super cute in person and I think it runs a little big. I was only able to try on a medium in this tee and it was huge on me.  I ordered it in a small, so I'll update this review with information about the fit.  I'm surprised this top isn't sold out yet, it's a perfect tee to wear now with some white jeans and then later a dark rinse pair of jeans. (size reference: mediumBOUGHT IT!


Stripe Wide Leg Jumpsuit {Now: $42.90 / Reg: $65.00}
When I saw this jumpsuit in the store I picked it up immediately to try it on.  I really hoped that the fit would work on me because I love the stripes and burgundy color.  Surprisingly, this jumpsuit fit me perfectly, but it just didn't make the cut when it I had to checkout.  Oh another thing to know about this jumpsuit is that the back is completely open, so you could add a cardigan over it or a t-shirt under it to wear it in an office setting. The fit is true to size based on the junior size chart. (size reference: small)
