Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Fitting Room Diaries Part 1

Happy Friday babes!!

Well I would say the first day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was a huge success!!! My mom and I shopped for 6 hours in store and somehow that wasn’t enough because there are so many items that I still want to try on and show all of you!! I have rounded up my very favorites that I tried on in store for you to see sizing and fit! Lets get started!!!

Due to the Nordstrom website being down most of the day yesterday, Nordstrom is offering all cardholders 10 points per dollar on all purchases made on their Nordstrom card from July 12th–July 14th!!! That’s $20 in Nordstrom Notes for every $100 spent! That’s incredible and insane!!! So make sure you order everything today and you will get a major Nordstrom Note in the mail!!!!

Free People Perfectly Victorian Dress (comes in 2 colors)

Fit: I have this dress in 4 other colors already and own 3 in size small and 1 in size medium. I purchased this one in a Medium for a little bit looser of a fit for Fall to wear with booties and boots! (I am 5’4″ for reference)

What size I am wearing here: Medium

Did I purchase? ABSOLUTELY YES, and you better believe I now own this dress in 5 colors!!!

Crossover Cubic Zirconia Ring

Comes in gold, rose gold + silver and I am buying every single color! Its only $36 and would make a great gift as well! I purchased a size 8 and my wedding ring is a size 7 for reference.

Halogen Leopard Loafer

Fit: These are a dream and fit amazing! I have a wider foot and I didn’t have to size up in these for them to fit. They’re super comfy and I already know I am going to wear these withe everything!!! These will sell out fast!

What size I am wearing here: The website says these run big, Im normally a 7/7.5 in shoes, and I purchased these in a 7.5

Did I purchase? DUH!! They’re leopard!

Madewell Utility Jacket (comes in gray also)

Fit: This jacket runs really TTS (unless you’re teeny tiny then it will probably run a little big). I would normally buy a small/medium in a utility jacket, and the shoulders were too tight in the small for me in this particular jacket. I could not recommend this jacket enough!!!! Definitely one of my favorite purchases from the sale!

What size I am wearing here: Medium

Did I purchase? YES and I am going to get it in the gray color as well!

Free People Plaid Top | Rag & Bone High Waisted Skinny Jeans

Fit: This FP top runs really oversized, but its supposed to! I can wear a XS, S, & M in Free People depending on the item, and got this in an XS.

What size I am wearing here: X-small

Did I purchase? Yes!! So cozy for Fall

Dolce Vita Block Heel Stud Sandals

Fit: These run really TTS and are surprisingly extremely comfy! These are such  fun statement shoe for Fall and they come in black as well!

What size I am wearing here: Wearing my regular size, 7.5

Did I purchase? YES!!!

Sam Edelman Bootie (comes in 4 colors)

Fit: These fit 1/2 large. I normally wear a 7.5 in boots and booties and got these in a 7. These are my favorite booties from the sale this year, I HIGHLY recommend these! They also come in a really pretty blue and cognac shade too! They are really comfy too!

What size I am wearing here: Size 7

Did I purchase? YES!!!

Tory Burch Sandals (comes in 5 colors)

Fit: These run a 1/2 size big compared to the Miller sandals. I always wear a 7.5 in Tory Burch and I needed the size 7! The leather is really cushy and extra comfy and they come in 5 colors! I love that these can be worn now and into Fall.

What size I am wearing here: I am wearing a size 7 here!

Did I purchase? My mom did and I am going to order them!

Vince Camuto Bootie (comes in 3 colors)

Fit: These ran TTS/ 1/2 size small. I would go with the larger of the two sizes if you’re between sizes. The actual bootie itself is gorgeous and the detail is amazing!

What size I am wearing here: Size 7 but needed a 7.5 –New Tornado Color (olive green)

Did I purchase? No, I haven’t yet, I am considering these because I love lower shaft booties to wear with dresses. I will probably purchase these in the tan color!


Tory Burch Riding Boots (also come in wide calf)

Fit: I didn’t try these on because I would need a wide calf–but they’re so gorgeous in person and these sell out super fast every year! This is my favorite style of these yet! They also come in black.

What size I am wearing here: Didn’t try these on

Did I purchase? No

Adidas Pink Tennis Shoes

Fit: I was super disappointed in these but it is probably because I have a wider foot and higher instep foot. The tongue on the shoes stuck up so far and they were not flattering on me personally. As of right now they are sold out.

What size I am wearing here: I tried on a size 7, and you could see the entire outline of my foot and didn’t look right to me.

Did I purchase? No!

Vince Camuto Open Toe Bootie (comes in 3 colors)

Fit: Because of my wider higher instep foot, these didn’t fit me at all, even when trying a whole size larger. the back strap cut into my heel and it was so uncomfortable. However they fit my mom perfectly and she purchased them and loves them!

What size I am wearing here: My mom purchased her regular size of 7.5

Did I purchase? I did not purchase these but they are gorgeous and highly recommend them!

Sam Edelman Bow Flats (comes in 10 gorgeous colors)

Fit: These are even more gorgeous in person! They’re so cute with Summer dresses now and will be even more perfect with Jeans in the Fall!

What size I am wearing here: I am wearing a 7.5 and they ran a tiny bit big. I would put a foot insert in these to make them a little tighter. I think a size 7 would have made my toes squished.

Did I purchase? Not yet, but I am going to! I highly recommend!

Sonix Sunglasses

Sonix Sunglasses

Marc Jacobs Sunglasses 

These were super super cute on!

Lulu DK love letters necklace (love this and bought it)

Crushed velvet is very in for Fall and this bag is the most gorgeous pink velvet!

BP Mules

Fit: These are so perfect for transitioning into fall and fit really TTS!

What size I am wearing here: I am wearing a size 7.5

Did I purchase? No I didn’t because I prefer a little bit taller of a heel, but I do recommend these! They were really comfy to walk in!

TopShop Cardigan

Fit: Extremely oversized and great quality. Extra cozy for Fall and the perfect colors for Fall! I love the large stripes!

What size I am wearing here: I am wearing a US4 here, but needed a US for a closer fit. This will sell out fast!

Did I purchase? No I did not but I suggest getting it asap! Its a really good cardigan!


Lush Tee (comes in 4 colors) only $16

Fit: Perfection! I bough this tee in grey, white, black and am going to buy the navy as well! As soon as I see the pink back in stock, I am ordering it! The fit is perfect and I sized up for for an extra oversized fit. Its really good quality and a great swing fit.

What size I am wearing here: I am wearing a size large, the medium fit slouchy as well, but i wanted to be able to tie at the front and do a front tuck so I sized up more.

Did I purchase? YES, I purchased 3 and know I will purchased more! This will sell out FAST!

Current Elliot T-shirt Dress

Fit: This fits very oversized but is amazing!

What size I am wearing here: I wearing a size 1 which is about a size 4. I love this for Summer or early Fall.

Did I purchase? Yes I did and highly recommend this! Its a little more expensive for a T-shirt dress, but it is 100% worth the price and I don’t normally spend this much on any T-shirt related. This one is a must have!

Hinge Dress (comes in two colors)

Fit: Fits a little oversized, it would be perfect if it had a cinched waist, this dress was a little hapless for me.

What size I am wearing here: Medium

Did I purchase? No I passed on this one.

One thought on “Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Fitting Room Diaries Part 1

  1. I have literally read through about 100 other bloggers ” what I bought at the Nordstrom Sale “blogs, insta stories, posts- THIS, THISputs everyone else’s to shame!!! It was amazing!!!!! Real, honest, informative, so beyond helpful with sizing and why I should get it- I wish I had started with you, Courtnee- you would have saved me so much time. I felt like I was in the store with you. (I am so upset I missed out on that madewell denim dress I had been looking for one) Honestly, sometimes I read bloggers posts and wonder if they’re promoting things for perks. (soooooo many similar picks of the same cardigan and shirt and bootie and tunic) If that’s the case- your post felt very real, sincere and genuine. I completely trust and believe everything you took home (or didn’t) was because it worked for you (or just didn’t- and you explained why- that was the best part, especially for me, who does 99% of her shopping from a computer and really appreciate the help with sizing and quality – I need all the info I can get !) Praying you will keep this format for the future – it was the BEST, most well done piece I have ever read. PS- I NEVER. EVER. comment on a blog- ever. You deserve an award for this. THANK YOU for a job well done!!!
