Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is still going on, but it ends soon. Don’t miss out on this really awesome sale. I found a few beauty products that I am either interested in or need to re-up on. Nordstrom is one of those cool spots for beauty products. They have expensive, luxury brands, and other not so well know brands. I always find something interesting in their beauty section. I have bought some perfumes from there. I also like their large supply of MAC and Kiehl’s products. I love me some Kiehl’s If you haven’t checked them out, go to Nordstrom or Nordstrom.com. Remember that Nordstrom has free shipping and free returns online.

Shoe of the Week Chinese Laundry Wide Calf Over The Knee Boot

wide calf over the knee boots

I love a good wide calf over the knee boot. I have wide calves, so something cute that comes wide and over the knee is something I am always looking for when I go boot shopping. I still have a black pair from Torrid that I got years ago when I was in college. I found a pair that comes in Cognac and Black (both leather) from Nordstrom that is on sale right now! They were originally $99.95, but now they are $66.96! That is a steal you guys!!!! They come in sizes 6.5 to 11. Yes you read that correct. Nordstrom does a good job of carrying hard to find sizes.

Buy the Chinese Laundry ‘Spring Street’ Boot (Wide Calf) Womens now, because Nordstrom will probably sell out of this cute wide calf over the knee boot fast because a style like this in this many sizes is rare. Photos from Nordstrom.

Nordstrom Has the Best Plus Size Tights

Looking for tights for the winter? Well look no more because I found them. I have been loving Nordstrom tights for two years now.  They truly are the best! Nordstrom has some of the sturdiest, best fitting, stylish plus size tights around. They fit me very well. As a matter of fact, they are one of the only brands that fits me perfectly.  They last forever if you treat them right, and they don’t bunch around my ankles or roll down all the way past my butt when I try to move around or get in and out of cars and whatnot. Seriously. You have to try these tights. I wear the Light Support and the Control Top.

FCC: I paid for these tights myself. This is an honest review.

Donna Ricco Plus Size Faux Wrap Jersey Dress

This Luxury Lust post is a plus size one. I am currently loving and lusting after the Donna Ricco Plus Size Faux Wrap Jersey Dress from Nordstrom.  This dress is beautiful, and it makes every shape look great. This color is perfect for holiday parties and a ton of skin tones, but at $148…this dress is out of my budget. A girl can dream though. Photo from Nordstrom.

TFAS Reviews: Nation LTD. Now Makes Soft Trendy Separates For Plus Sizes

Nation LTD Plus Sizes


The wonderful people at Nation LTD. sent me two items to review. I am not going to lie. When they contacted me, I was super excited. I love hearing about straight size brands taking the plunge to actually design a decent plus size line. This line is more than decent though. The basics are really cute and comfy. They remind of trendy yoga wear that you can wear outside without looking weird.
