Deal of the Day: Animal Print Loafers for Under $15

Some of the big sellers at this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale were animal print mules and loafers, like this snake skin Steve Madden pair. However, they are $70 and who knows if they will still be trendy next year!

If you’d like to try the trend for less, Wal-Mart has released several patterns of its “Time & Tru Feather Loafers” for only $14.97. I purchased some similar leopard loafers from them last year and really liked them.

Fall Trends: Leopard Sweaters for $50 or Less

Deal of the Day: My Favorite Suit for Under $100!

In a prior Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I bought the Halogen “Ela” Suit after trying about 20 others that just didn’t work for me. I am 5’11” and between a Large and X-Large (usually a 12 in pants), and needed a black pants suit that would fit my curvy hips and also be long enough on me.  I was so pleasantly surprised that this one (in Size 12) fit perfectly!

The “Ela” suit is now at Nordstrom Rack, and the entire thing is less than $100! (The exact pants/jacket I got total to $99 right now but other combos are actually far less).  Click here to shop the jacket, pants and matching skirt (as well as a plus-size version).

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019: My Top Picks (Sorted by Price)

*UPDATED 6/14 with additional items and info on what is Sold Out at the moment*

I used to not really understand what the big deal was with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (as a bargain shopper, it can be hard to spend $50+ on one item, even if it is “on sale”) – but I’ve now come to realize that Nordstrom carries some of my absolute favorite brands (Kut from the Kloth, BlankNYC, Zella, etc.), and this is the only time to get a discount on some of them!

The sale for Nordstrom credit card holders runs from July 12-18th, and the sale opens to the public on July 19th. Below are my favorite picks (prices reflect the current sale. Prices will go back up to full price on August 1st, as these are brand new fall items):
