Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Nordstrom is putting tons of items on discount for their half yearly sale which always occurs in the late spring.  This is Christmas for die-hard Nordstrom fans.  Great deals and tons of options if you’re willing to dig a little…thankfully, full clutch is willing to do the digging for you.  Free shipping and free returns.  See our picks for the best of the bunch below:


Darling Dresses.

At left, we have the Calvin Klein Belted Stripe Jersey Sheath Dress – $57.90 ($88).  Available in sizes 10, 12, and 14, it features navy and white stripes.  It also comes with the red patent belt pictured, which I love.  The belt has the sleekness of a skinny belt, but the flattering silhouette of a wide belt with those two skinny buckles.  In the middle, Calvin Klein “Stretch Luxe” Seamed Sheath Dress – $58.90 ($118), available in sizes 2-14.  This shade appears to be dove grey which is a beautiful, sophisticated color–and very on trend right now.  One review says the dress runs small.  At right, Jessica Simpson Button Detail Pleat Front Dress – $78.90 ($118).  Sizes 4, 10, and 12 are available in this vibrant orange and black pattern.  Say what you will about Jessica Simpson the singer, celebrity, or reality TV star, she is a very savvy businesswoman, and her products are typically cute and high quality.  16 consumers give this dress very high marks.


For the full-figured gals.

At left, Suzi Chin for Maggy Boutique Twist Waist Jersey Dress – $68.90 ($138).  Available in sizes 14-24, this jewel-toned beauty is gorgeously draped.  Love how it emphasizes the bust and waist and has a slight cowl neck which is super flattering.  At right, Kenneth Cole New York Mixed Snake Print Skirt – $34.97 ($89.50).  I dig everything about this skirt–the mixed pattern, the silver against the orange accent at the waist, the length.  Reviews say the fabric isn’t high quality, but for under $40, it’s worth a chance.  Available in sizes 14 & 16–snap it up!


For the small-boned sisters.

At left, the Sandra Ingrish Roll Sleeve Knit Shirt – $31.90 ($48) is one of two petite picks for this post.  This shirt looks so soft and comfortable–great for lounging on the weekend.  Available in sizes XS, S, and L.  Shown in jade, but also available in pink and deep sea.  The other petite option is the Foxcroft Stretch Poplin Sleeve Shirt – $48.90 ($73).  The name of this shade is candy apple–how awesome is that?  Available in sizes 2, 10, 14, and 16.  I love the Mandarin collar and detailing at the shoulder.


Takin' care of your top half.

At left the Stem Striped Organic Cotton Polo – $19.90 ($38) shown in green/ming which looks so springy, doesn’t it?  Also available in navy/exclipse, and sizes XS, S, M, and L.  This cotton Frenchi Lace Stripe Boatneck Sweater – $23.90 ($48) has lace detailing around the neck and waist and also comes in coral and grey.  Lots of sizes!  MOD.lusive Ruched Sleeve Long Cardigan – $33.90 ($42) at right is a basic, no-button cardigan in a lovely purple shade.  Wear with jeans, wear with dress slacks, wear with a short-sleeved dress.


Fancy feet.

The bad news for Nordstrom fans is that the pickin’s are slim in the shoe section.  Not entirely surprising, considering that’s what many people love most about Nordstrom–the shoes.  But I did find two pairs that were super cute.  At left, the cap toe Nine West Outburst Flat – $51.90 ($78.95) is available in all sizes 5-10.  At right, the Seychelles Mixed Emotions Pump – $52.90 ($79.95) only has 8.5 and 10 left, but considering those are pretty common sizes, hopefully that accommodates some of you out there.


Puts the clutch in full clutch.

At left, the Glint Pleated Frame Clutch – $44.90 ($68) in red silk.  This classic pleated clutch is also available in black or silver, and would be the perfect accessory for any summer weddings you might be attending.  My fave of the two is the Tasha Caged Minaudiere – $57.90 ($88).  There’s something sort of art deco about this clutch, with its hard geometric lines. Plus, I love the black and silver colors of the clutch against the amber color of the clasp.  Pretty with an attitude.

    I’m so disappointed! I love that first dress, the Calvin Klein belted one, and there’s only a size 14 left. Bummer!
