[1.0] REVITALASH!!!!! This is actually $98, IDK how I missed it before! LOL
You guys, I have been using the Revitalash serum since I partnered with the fabulous Olivia on the blog a few weeks ago, and I swear my lashes are getting longer and thicker. Mike can attest! (Though he might just be saying it to be nice LOL! But I see the difference!). It just requires the tiniest amout before bed, so this does go a LONNNNGGGG way!
[2.0] Designer watches!
Both of my Michael Kors watches (silver and gold) were purchased during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale (one in 2009, the other in 2010). This is the time to buy a designer watch! Here are my favorite 3.
Silver Marc Jacobs- practical and chic for $132.90.
Two-tone Kate Spade with bow on the side- whimsical and matches both silver and gold jewerly. $149.90
Multicolor Marc Jacobs-- my all time fave of the sale watches! $149.90.
As a high school teacher, I am constantly checking my watch to be sure we don't run over or get too close to the bell. I also check it a ton when I am writing passes for kids. Andddd during each chunk of activities, I am constantly making sure we are on time. Basically, I couldn't survive a day at work without my watch. haha
[3.0] The only winter jacket you need. $169.90
This jacket. I cannot say enough good things about it! I purchased mine two winters ago, thanks to the input of my friend Mandy! It is sooooooo warm, but it is completely packable and light! It is shocking that it weighs close to nothing, but it guards against our -20 degree wind chills and 0 degree days. Seriously! I wrote about Mandy's here. I would literally pay the full price of $230 for this jacket because it's that warm. But, you don't have to!! I bought a medium because it's a little bit of a slimmer fit. You can also tighten it with the bungee cords on the inside. Also, I've washed it in the washing machine a few times with no issues whatsoever. I just hung it to dry!
[4.0] Designer sunglasses for $143.90.
Tory Burch is one of my favorite designers. I have a few bags and pairs of shoes of hers, but everything she makes is of the highest quality and is pure class. A great example? These sunnies! Oversized tortoise shell sunglasses will never go out of style.
[5.0] Angel perfume $120 for a set.
I wish I could put a scratch and sniff button on this blog so you could understand the magic that is ANGEL by Mugler. YOU GUYS! My friend wore it years ago, and I was obsessed, so I jumped on the Angel board!!! It is THE BEST SCENT!! And it is usually stupidly expensive. Not that this is cheap, but it is worth every dollar. Truly. Go smell it somewhere nearby, then order it on the Nordies sale!! Let me know what you think. I am obsessed. MEN: buy this for your women!!!!!!!! Seriously. Perfect gift, and it smells sooooooo delightful. It's a win-win-win; everyone wins because even passersby will get a whiff of your loveliness! Anna, didn't you used to wear this?! I swear I would steal it from your dresser when we lived together #confessions hahaha
[6.0] A suede, knee-high boot with a sensible heel. $149.90.
Sam Edelman does it RIGHT when it comes to shoes. The comfort of his shoes is on point. These knee-high boots are no different. Be sure to check the width of your calf for these. Also, once you get them, do a suede spray all over! You don't want the salt to get to them. I love that these zip all the way up; that makes it super easy to tuck your skinny jeans into them! Loving the caramel color.
I bought my first TB flats on the Nordstrom Anniversary sale back in 2009! I JUST sold them on eBay about a year ago, and I still got half their value even 7 years later! They are such high quality! I can wear these all day to teach in. I have a glittery gold pair, a striped blue and red pair and a teal pair. I want the black ones! Just for a sensible shoe to wear all the time. I just looked to see what size mine were to order the black ones, and I have 8.5 in mine. I am usually a 7.5, so they do run small! The leather stretches with wear, too, which makes them uber comfy. I just had my glittery gold ones re-soled last winter!
[8.0] This suede saddle bag for $164.90.
This looks identical to the Chloe bag of my dreams! The Chloe bag, like many of my "lust items", is absurdly expensive. But, man is it a beauty. This is EVEN PRETTIER! And a fraction of the price. I love that mulberry color for fall. A cross body bag is so necessary for me these days. Also, even as a dupe of the Chloe, this bag is legit. The size is perfect, too!
[9.0] A high-waisted designer denim-- $131.90.
I am ordering these! I have been hemming and hawing about the perfect designer skinny jeans, and these fit all my criteria. I need a high waist, and I wanted them to be an ankle length for ballet flats. Done and done. I'll report back with fit, but I am ordering the 28/6 (typical for me).
[10.0] The only rainboot you'll ever need-- $129.90.
I own two pairs of Hunters, and they are AWESOME. I wear them when it rains (obvi), but I also wear them with boot socks in the snow. If you live anywhere near me in Northern IL, you get a LOT OF SNOW. So much so, that a typical ankle height snow boot won't cut it! Grab some boot socks, and use these all year long. I love them with skirts and dresses, too. It *almost* makes me love the rain!
All right, you guys! Now is the time to get shopping. What have you bought so far? What's in your shopping bag? Some items are backordered, but do not worry-- they ship incredibly fast!
