Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Haul - Skincare and Fashion Picks


By request, I've rounded up my skincare and clothing haul picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Today is the last day for early access and the public sale starts tomorrow July 22nd. Although I did shop the sale early, many items sold out in stores near me so I ordered a few items online. My husband did not want to go in store (like most men I think) and since he knows his sizes, he gave me a list of things to order online for him. He tends to stick with classic staples.

First up are my picks. For clothes I had a lot on my list to check out but ended up getting only a few items including:



I tried on a few more items in store including the Trouve Drape Front Leather Jacket in Black and Brown Saddle. I found the XS fit perfectly across the shoulders and the arm length was good (rare for me with leather jackets, they're always so long!). It's definitely one of the more affordable jackets with super soft leather. It's still on my wishlist but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. I fell in love with the Whiskey color of the Marc New York by Andrew Marc Felix Stand Collar Leather Jacket but they didn't have my size in store to try and the collar was on the large size for my preference. In terms of leather jackets, Vince makes my favorite ones but they are quite the splurge and since I don't think I could keep anything suede nice for long I will save for a regular leather one.

A quick look at the Trouve Drape Front Leather Jackets in two colors and the Rag and Bone Split Back Tank (ordered once I got home).


Rest of what's on my radar/wishlist:





For skincare I picked up the Foreo Luna Play which comes in one color at Nordstrom. I thought it was an Anniversary Sale Exclusive but appears that it's not (you can also get it at Sephora and other retailers in different colors). It's a mini sized device that has 100 uses and is non-rechargeable but at the price I think it's worth it. I have yet to test it out, but it was too cute to pass up. I've shown it next to my Clarisonic Mia Fit (c/o) which I received a few weeks ago but is currently on sale at Nordstrom marked down on mega sale. The Pink Mia Fit is currently on backorder online but Nordstrom.com will still let you put it in your cart at the sale price. White Mia Fit and Blue Mia Fit are both still in stock online.


La Mer has a Gift With $350 Purchase so I bought the new Cleansing Micellar Water to try out along with the Revitalizing Collection set. I did not realize the Nordstrom set had the regular Creme de La Mer instead of the Moisturizing Soft Cream that I typically use. I haven't used the set yet so I'm debating whether to give the regular cream a go or exchange it for my Moisturizing Soft Cream. If you have normal/combo skin let me know if you've tried the regular cream and what you thought.


I look forward to the Moroccan Oil offerings each year. Last year they had supersized shampoos and conditioners and I stocked up on a few. This year's Moroccan Oil Hair Care Set has the dry oil, moisture shampoo and conditioner and moroccan oil. These are among my favorite shampoo and conditioner products out of all the ones I've tried. My husband likes the smell so much he decided to use it to wash our dogs and I almost died when I found out.


Husband's fashion picks that have arrived so far include the Cole Haan Owen Sport Sneakers (which aren't on sale but hubby wanted them) and the Ted Baker London Alex Slim Fit Bomber Jacket. He's usually a Large (he's 6'3") and we found Size 5 worked best.


Other items we are waiting for in the mail, he stocked up on jeans from AG (he likes the Protege fit), Joe's (classic fit) and 7 for All Mankind (Austyn fit). Image is interactive so you can click directly on the icons to shop them on Nordstrom.



For those curious about my skincare and fashion picks, I hope you enjoyed this roundup in a his and hers edition. If you have any input in the La Mer I'm all ears! It looks like there's a new Moisturizing Soft Lotion that just launched at Nordstrom too. I'm torn between keeping or exchanging the set because it's such a good deal, but I suspect the regular creme might just be too heavy for my skintype.

Did you haul any skincare or fashion goodies during early access or are you shopping the sale tomorrow? Let me know what you found!

Weekend Shopping Finds

I went to the mall to do some returns while checking out the Bobbi Brown Corals Collection. I found some cute things - not all makeup related, so if you're only interested in the makeup part, I apologize!

Stop #1: J.Crew - I went in to return a scarf that I wasn't so wowed with after my initial purchase but there were so many pretty new spring clothes, I couldn't resist trying on a few things.

Rose Vines Bandaged Dress Item #25270 $138
(couldn't find this online yet though)
+ the newest catalog


Tried on a cotton ruffle dress in XS (left) which was super comfy but just looked odd with the ruffles near the bust. I don't remember the item number but I can't find it online either. It retailed for $69.50 and also came in a light grey color. Also tried the Rose Vines Bandaged Dress in Size 2 (right) which I ended up purchasing. It's difficult to see up close but the top has banded layers of fabric.


Frances Heart Cami Item #24735 which is currently on sale for $69.99. This is in Size 0. It looks way better on the model at Jcrew. A bit frilly but I still thought it was cute.


This is my favorite look from the new catalog.


Stop #2: Nordstrom - Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals haul plus some other browsing.

Bobbi Brown Cabana Corals Haul (which you saw yesterday)


Didn't buy any of these since I don't have babies - but looking at these makes me want to have them. I just about died when I saw those baby boy Pumas.


Stop #3: Saks - I snapped pics of the upcoming Laura Mercier Exclusive set which has the Pink Rose Blush Quad, Bold Berries Eyeshadow Quad, 2 mini brushes, full size Babydoll Lipgloss, a mini mascara and mini foundation primer. I actually saw this at SCP a few weeks ago and I was under the impression it was for sale. My local Saks said it's only available for presale right now. I can't remember the price, but I want to say around $65-68ish?


Picked up the YSL Spring Highlighter + Armani Maestro Quad #6.



Stop #4: Sephora - Tarte Cheek Stain in Tipsy, a nice soft but healthy coral-pink.


What did you find this weekend?

Holiday Haulings from The Primping Parleur

Just wanted to remind all my readers that you can still get 20% off your online order from The Primping Parleur until the end of the month! Just enter the code BEAUTYLOOKBOOKBLOG at the checkout. Check out my original post HERE for more details and information.

Anyone who already ordered, what did you end up getting with the promotional code? I'd love to hear what you bought! I got quite a few presents for my girlfriends - they are all packed up and wrapped right now, but for myself, I got:
  • Paul & Joe Eyeshadow Harvest Moon 95 (waves to Joeybunny for convincing me!)
  • Becca Lip Tints Yasmina (nude-mauve on the left) & Estella (warm but pale nude on the right)
  • Kevyn Aucoin The Celestial Powder in Candlelight


P&J Harvest Moon 95 Eyeshadow is a neutral plum-nude with shimmer. I think it will make a good natural contouring shade. The Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight Shimmer Powder is a soft champagne shimmer powder that gives a nice candlelight-like-glow, I used this on my eyes all over the lid which gave a nice glowy effect, but the color just didn't seem all that unique. The Becca Lip Tints are both sheer but very wearable nudes for my pigmented lips. I think I need to try more of these.
