$500 Nordstrom GC just in time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Happy Monday!! I hope you had a great weekend!! I feel like I should say that even though it’s 100 degrees in Dallas and due to Covid we don’t do much of anything. However we did keep Sloan and Creighton this weekend and that was fun for us. The downside is that my daughter had arthroscopic surgery on both of her knees on Friday. It’s a challenge but I’m sure in the end she will be glad she got it over with. I apologize that I am throwing this blog together on Sunday night even though I have known about this amazing raffle for 2  $500 Nordstrom GC Just in time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for a bit. I just don’t seem to get much done these days!! No excuses. We are actually giving away 2 $500 Gift Cards so you have a better chance of winning!!!

Plaid jacket from last years Nordstrom half yearly sale


Last year was the first time that I have shopped the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale. I applied for a Nordstrom Credit Card (even though I am trying not to charge these days). You may have noticed that this sale is a huge deal for bloggers and we all try to guide you if you’re interested in shopping the sale. There are staggered start dates depending on your status as a Nordstrom Card Holder. I was skeptical at first but I have to admit I had a really great time at the fashion show and working with a sales associate to choose the items that I wanted to buy and feature on Fashionomics blog last year. WARNING – The best pieces sell out fast so don’t hesitate to order if you are even thinking about an item. Full price Fall items go on sale and then the prices are raised when the sale is over. It’s a great time to shop for Fall Fashion for the entire family, basic pieces you’ve always wanted, Christmas gifts and cosmetics. Don’t forget to enter the raffle below to win one of two $500 Nordstrom GCs!!

Plaid jacket with leaopard tank for Fashionomics


Nordstrom keeps it a big secret what items will be included in the sale and this will be revealed for Preview on July 24. The sale runs August 19-30 unless you are a Nordstrom Card Holder you will get early access August 4-13 depending on your Nordy Club status/level. Cardmembers can start shopping August 13. Here is a Nordstrom link with all of the most important details. I decided to just show you some of my favorite looks from last year. I am sure there will be very similar items included in this year’s sale. My all time favorite pieces from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last year worked around this longer plaid jacket. I had a lot of fun styling it so many different ways. I literally wore all of these pieces on rotation all fall and winter. Mixing the plaid with with different animal prints was exciting and made me feel like I got a lot of bang from my buck just with these key pieces. This was wardrobing mix and match at its best (in my opinion). Don’t forget to enter the raffle below to win one of two $500 Nordstrom GCs!!

The most shocking thing to me last year was how fast the best pieces sold out. It was frustrating as a blogger because by the time I could do a photo session and post my blogs the items I had chosen were sold out. I am serious when I tell you that if you are interested in getting some real bargains shop early and order everything and more than you think you want. I shouldn’t say this but you can always return the things you decide not to keep. I realize that there are so many sales at retail stores these days but you usually don’t get to purchase current in season merchandise on sale. You generally have to wait until the next season rolls around for the sales to start. Don’t forget to enter the raffle below to win one of two $500 Nordstrom GCs!!

I have to say I have missed writing my blogs because I feel like I am talking to someone out there and I guess I don’t feel so isolated. I think I mentioned before that I was in a bit of a lost funk at the beginning of the shut down. I have been able to visit my kids in Memphis once and hope to go back soon. I am so thankful to have two daughters in Dallas and my grandbabies that I get to see. I miss my daughter in DC and son and his wife and baby Will in Arkansas. My husband has been able to go to his office every day so his life has barely changed.  I hope you will let me know if you have any questions or ideas for future blogs. Maybe I need some inspiration from you all. I appreciate you for taking time to read my ramblings on fashion etc. Stay safe and well!! I am sure there are many sliver linings in this cloud!! I am counting my blessings!! XO Debby
