In the event you missed the memo, the Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access Sale began yesterday. What is Early Access? If you have a Nordstrom Retail Card, you have the ability to shop the sale 8 days before it goes public. After visiting the store today, I am here to tell you, if you have your heart set one something, get it now! I’m blessed to have a wonderful personal shopper, Bella Baynard in the Accessory Department at the Stanford Store in Palo Alto, who since I couldn’t make it in to the store yesterday, was able to take my list and ring up my items for me. Many items, including the olive-grey nubuck Rebecca Minkoff Julian Backpack that I had to have, sold out online yesterday. But thanks to Bella, it’s in my shopping bag at home!
Google ‘Nordstrom Anniversary Sale’ and you will find a slew of blogger picks. I couldn’t possibly list all my favorites, but I do have some juicy ones to share. I shop lingerie, handbags, shoes, accessories and activewear – it’s just to hot here in California for me to get to excited about sweaters right now. That said, if sweaters are what you are looking for, there are some great looks with bell sleeves, long lengths, shirts layered over sweaters, vests and ponchos.
What did I pick up?
The Rebecca Minkoff Julian Backpack in Olive Nubuck (I am loving this color for fall!) (HERE)
7 for All Mankind Denim Jumpsuit (this will either be fabulous or a total 90’s flashback bust!) (HERE)
I restocked my Chantelle Seamless (HERE) and Natori Bliss panties (below, and HERE), Zella high waist leggings for working out – a must-have and now available in crop length (HERE) and full length (HERE) | The full length Zella Legging was reviewed in this AskSuzanneBell Archived Post (HERE) along with the Lysee faux leather legging, also on sale (HERE)
Kate Spade ‘in a flash collar necklace” in neutral (HERE)
Today I shopped with 2 girlfriends, all 3 of us left with the Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Lite Hooded Cardigan (HERE). When my girlfriend Kanesha got home with hers, her son put it on, loved the hood, and said, “where’s mine?”. I’d say that’s a winner!
I always look to this early fall sale as a preview of what’s to come. What caught my eye? All the crushed velvet, backless loafers (a fall must-have), 90’s inspired booties, printed velvet short boots, crop flare denim continues, long cardigans, all shades of olive and grey, bell sleeve sweaters, jumpsuits appear to be sticking around, embellished sneakers, backpacks (at every price!), large totes, and for color; taupe-grey leather was everywhere, in everything – could it be replacing cognac? Stay tuned! Red will be coming on strong, and burgundy; now a more oxblood shade.
Shopping is always more fun with friends. Luckily we had the most patient personal shopper, Bella Baynard in the Palo Alto Store as our tour guide!

A Few Favorites:
Apologies for the following items not having direct links. I’m not sure if it’s due to the Early Access or my computer – but I could not get these to link up in a set. I included the names and prices for you, so you can easily find them online by going to the Nordstrom Early Access Site (HERE)
I personally have tried all of the foundation pieces above. My girlfriends and I love all 3 of these panties, Commando offers a thong version and the Chantelle and Natori offer brief options.

Suzzane, i Liked that black jumpsuit on you soo much that i purchased one for myself. (also the pilcro big cuff jeans). i have a question, the jumpsuit says dry clean only. Have you washed it in gentle?
So I have not washed it in the washer – though I do put most clothing thru the wash. I drycleaned it the last time around because I wanted to take it on a trip and didn’t want the hassle of steaming or ironing it. BTW, try wearing it backwards, it’s cute that way too! I’m seeing the big cuff jean moving forward into fall so we will be able to keep wearing those for awhile, next to show off cute booties and backless mules :)! xx
