Maybe you saw my instagram stories but I tried some stuff on at Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in-person so you don’t have to!  See my feedback below and…

Shop Workwear + Under $100 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

nordstrom anniversary sale
sweatshirt (look for less here + shop other sweatshirts here), zella moto yoga pants, zella knit joggers (shop more joggers here), similar sneakers (mine are last year)

I’m a Zella loyalist – it’s the only workout brand I wear.  I’d say size down in the pants if you want a tight fit like me.  The knit joggers run big, too!

Vince funnel neck sweater (shop more Vince sweaters here), AG boyfriend jeans (shop more AG jeans here), Vince striped turtleneck

Vince used to run a lot bigger but these sweaters are much more true to size (small works for me).  The AG jeans are a boyfriend style but I’m wearing my normal size, 26, here – and they run VERY cropped (I’m 5’9″ for reference).  Also, speaking of funnel necks – this sweatshirt is amazing!

Theory fitted sweater (shop Theory sweaters here), Vince skirt (the metallic look for less is here)rag & bone sweater (shop more rag & bone sweaters here), AG boyfriend jeans (under $75, edgier version here)

This Vince skirt is the hero of Anniversary Sale.  The quality is amazing and the length is gorgeous – I feel like it’s being overlooked but you can wear it now and all fall/winter!  It’s true to size, as is the Theory and rag & bone sweaters (size 2 and small respectively).

topshop jacket (how great is this lilac color at a great price?!), equipment cashmere cardigan (this j crew cardigan is a great look for less), madewell jean shorts (on sale!)

This topshop moto jacket is an awesome deal.  No, the quality isn’t that of Veda or IRO leather/suede but it’s a nice weight and looks much more expensive than it is.  Topshop sizing is tough – I’m wearing a US 8 in this photo and that’s what I’d buy to wear sweaters underneath.  (I’m normally a 2-4).  This Equipment cashmere sweater is lovely and oh so preppy – wearing an XS.

Chelsea28 sweater (also love this grey version), Halogen poncho (the v neck version is also amazing)

This Chelsea28 sweater surprised the hell out of me.  It’s way higher quality than I thought it would be and the bell sleeves fit amazingly (they have a tighter sleeve underneath).  Also, the cashmere poncho was so luxurious feeling – I’m getting one for my mom for Christmas (act surprised, Mom).



  1. The exact Vince cashmere blend mockneck sweater is available in a dark grey on Nordstrom Rack for $100 less than the brown one was in the AS. I just snagged one.
