Recent Nordstrom Buys Plus #NSale Pieces

I know, I know, not another Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post right? There have been so many of them for weeks now! However, I wanted to share with you what I actually purchased from Nordstrom recently, some pieces from the #NSale, others not from the anniversary sale but still on sale! So even though there may be hundreds of posts out there on this, we don’t all buy the same exact stuff do we?

#NSale Buys 2017 // The Krystal Diaries

Unlike what seems like most bloggers out there, I don’t have a Nordstrom card. I’ve debated it for ever now but just haven’t signed up. Waiting a few extra days didn’t actually kill me like some would make you believe though. I just patiently waited until July 21st and purchased what I wanted then. Guess what? Everything I wanted was still available.

I believe in only buying pieces you would actually buy at full price. Don’t just fall into the trap of buying things you don’t really need or love because it’s on sale. You’ll end up with a closet full of things you’ll never actually wear. Even if something sold out from the sale, if I truly wanted it, I’d get it at full price anyway.

From the #NSale:

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings – I think these are going to be perfect for travel! I wanted these for a while so I was so happy to see them part of the sale.
Paige Hoxton High Waist Anke Skinny Jeans – No more folding up jeans to wear them with booties in the fall
T3 Black & Rose Gold SinglePass Luxe Straightening & Styling Iron – I purchased a flat iron from Amazon a few months back after my tried & true one broke but the new one just wasn’t doing a good job. Can’t wait to try this flat iron out!
Slip for Beauty Sleep Slipsilk Pure Silk Queen Pillowcase Duo – I figure it’s about time I start sleeping on a silk pillowcase to help prevent wrinkles & hair frizziness.
Honeydew Intimates Burnout Lounge Sweatshirt – Who doesn’t love comfy pjs?
Sigma Beauty Innovation Duo – It’s about time I make cleaning my makeup brushes easier

Not From the #NSale but Still on Sale:

Chelsea28 Crop Lace Bomber Jacket – I can see myself layering this over basic tees all fall long.
Vince Camuto Hooded Trench Coat – No one likes to ruin their freshly styled hair & I’ve never owned a trench with a hood before so this is a must have staple for me.

Recent Purchases Before the #NSale:

Chelsea28 Ruffle Hem Tee – Just because ruffles are adorable and this is long enough to wear with leggings
Paige Transcend Hoxton High Waist Ultra Skinny Jeans – I’m slowly in the process of replacing all my worn out jeans

    You are right about not buying something just because it is on sale! I wish I knew this long time ago, I ended up giving most of it away. I like the dark top, it is simple, elegant, and good to wear in Summer.

  4. Absolutely agree with not buying things just for the sake of buying them! My favourite is the trench coat! I like that they are very flattering for full figures like myself!

    Me being the makeup fiend that I am, my eyes went straight to the sigma brush mat. Sadly I didn’t find out about the sale sigma was having until after the sale ended. 🙁

      Well it’s a good thing the mat is part of the Nordstrom sale right then!

    I try not to buy something just because it’s on sale – but sometimes I can’t help myself 🙂 I need to try to get my hands on that Sigma Beauty set. I hate cleaning brushes, so anything that would help is always appreciated!

      Having a card def isn’t a must to shop the sale

  8. I’m loving those faux leather leggings. I’ve been looking for a nice fitted pair and this could be a really great time to pick them up!

    There is so much here I want! I stopped buying at the sale because I also was buying stuff I really didn’t need. But now I’m so tempted again!

    It makes me so sad to live in Australia because I always want so many things at Nordstrom but shipping is too expensive! Can’t wait for our next visit to the states to shop up a storm

  11. I really want to pick up a really good pair of jeans from the sale. That’s the only thing I’m really missing and something I want for fall.

    I am a suckered for trench costs so I guess that’s my favourite. I’m not seeing much of the sales here I’m the UK. Great finds

    Oh but I love a good sale, haha! I don’t tend to buy a lot for myself so I do seek out the sales and enjoy finding little bargains. Love the look of that black trench coat!

  17. I maxed out my Nordie card during this sale and still have a few more items I need to purchase. I am LOVING that black coat on your list. Think I will add it to my cart…if it’s not sold out!

    Faux leather leggings? How did I not know these existed? That is seriously a great idea and so stylish to boot.

  20. I am doing my best to stay far away from the Nordstrom’s sale! lol I have a lot of flights to purchase soon and want to save my extra money towards the trip. I definitely hate that I am missing out though.
