Nordstrom New Markdowns
Nordstrom is offering new markdowns on select items. Although Nordstrom can be very pricey when regularly priced, they have some of the best sale and clearance selections out there. I perused the accessories page and found some great deals on handbags, clutches, watches, and jewelry.
Carmen Tote – $65.66 ($98)
This functional tote comes in super feminine colors–coral and pink, purple and blue. Carry over your wrist or attach the longer strap to haul over your shoulder. A great way to add color to your outfit!
This leather, snake-skin texture clutch is angular and slim for a modern look. There’s also a bit of gold treatment highlighting the texture of the surface for added glamour. What a great addition to a sleek cocktail dress for happy hour or a night on the town.
Diane von Furstenberg incorporates a lot of chain patterns into her line–on scarves and dresses, and now on this darling clutch. This is one of those classic pieces that, while expensive up front, will be on trend and wearable forever. If you love the DvF brand, or this clutch really catches your eye, you may be able to better justify the price because you’ll be able to wear it with many outfits in years to come.
Anne Klein Rectangular Watch Bracelet – $89.98 ($150); Judith Jack Enamel & Marcasite Bracelet – $65.66 ($98)
Craving a little bling? What about this very reasonably-priced Anne Klein watch? Rose gold-tone metal, mother of pearl, and Swarovski crystals make this an especially decadent piece. Also available in yellow gold-tone. A more subtle serving of bling can be found in these delicate bangles from Judith Jack. JJ uses marcasite all the time, which is a silvery, semi-dull crystal that makes really interesting jewelry. Love the squares of marcasite in thin rows, set against the bright blue of the bangle. Also available in pink and black.
Anne Klein Round Leather Strap Watch – $44.98 ($75); Argento Vivo ‘Bauble Bar’ Pendant Necklace – $45.56 ($68)
If the previous AK watch was too over the top for you, what about this elegant watch with roman numerals and just a bit of sparkle around the face? White face, silver metal, and a black textured band. A great everyday watch. The onyx pendant necklace at right features both sterling silver and yellow gold plating, so it’s one of those pieces that can connect different types of metals. You could wear a silver watch and yellow gold earrings with this piece and not feel like your accessories were clashing.
I love the subtle texture on these black drop earrings–almost like charcoal. It’s good to have basic earrings you can wear everyday, in casual or dressy situations, and these drops fit that bill. At right, by the same designer, a large olive green with crystal and gold plate detail pendant. Usually I’m not one for such large pendants, but this piece was so beautiful I had to include it. This necklace would be great with a simple solid-colored blouse and trouser jeans.
