Belle’s Picks: Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale

May 20, 2015

Next to the Anniversary Sale, Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly is my favorite sale event of the year.  It provides a great opportunity to buy a few basics or indulge in something fun to punch-up your wardrobe.  Here are my best picks for working women from this year’s sale.

Classiques Entier Sunmosa Dress ($135)

Dresses. This dress is a wonderful warm-weather work dress.  It comes in navy, black, and two bright colors.  I think the neckline and the belt make this a stylish, sophisticated buy.

For work, I love this striped black-and-white Tahari dress.  There’s also an incredibly stylish plus-size Julia Jordan dress in black-and-white.  For a bit of color, this NYDJ Gracelynn dress is a winner.

Looking for a fun dress?  This bright pink Eliza J dress is great for summer events.  I also love this casual coral woven maxi.

Charles David Lulu d’Orsay Pump ($146)

Shoes. Charles David is a great brand, and their Lulu pump comes in four colors.  I love this modern shape.  If you have a bit of money to spend, I also recommend the Stuart Weitzman Platswoon Pump.

Looking for more affordable options? The Michael Kors Flex pump is an amazingly comfortable shoe, and at $76, a great buy.  Also, I own these Jeffrey Campbell Calista pumps in black, and they are my favorite.

Need flats? These $98 Cole Haan skimmers in black and white are so very cool.  And these perforated ballet flats from Michael Kors are very cute.

Pleione Mixed Media Top ($35, also in petite)

Tops. I love this top from Pleione because you can tuck it into a pencil for a relaxed work look or wear it with denim on the weekends.  And best of all, it comes 11 colors.

Trouve also makes this great short sleeve blouse for $40.  It comes in nine colors.  And don’t miss this sleeveless v-neck Vince Camuto blouse for $35 (also in petite).  Plus-size? This sleeveless mixed media top from Halogen is very cute.

Trouve Wrap Front Skirt ($45)

Skirts.  This wrap-front skirt is a fantastic piece for dinner or evening events.  I love the look with a sleeveless silk top and a pair of great pumps.  You can also wear it casually with a t-shirt and a flat sandal.

This printed a-line skirt has a great splash of different shades of blue.  I also like this simple box pleat skirt from Halogen and this simple pencil skirt, also from Halogen.

    I tried on that Lulu pump a few months ago when I was looking for a pair of nude heels and OUCH OUCH OUCH. In the first minute out of the box I knew they were not for me – there’s not a scrap of padding anywhere in that shoe. Just a warning to other tender-footed shoppers.

What I’m Really Buying on Prime Day

I will probably not open Instagram for the next two days. The Prime Day madness is just too thick. 90% of the items being promoted are things that I’ll throw away in two months (or less). But there are a handful of things I will use and are grateful to grab at a discount, here […]
