Retail reconnaissance from home…
Early Access for all Nordstrom cardholders begins tomorrow. So I thought I’d take this opportunity to share and review a few of the pieces I’d ordered to try.

In normal years, I would have visited my local Nordstrom and tried on some items there to photograph for you. But with things being as they are, I decided to stick to online shopping this year. (Besides, my store is small and doesn’t usually have all of the items I’m interested in.)
I still have a few items on the way, but here’s what I’ve received so far. There’s a lot of leopard print in this batch, just to warn you! 😆 I’m not wearing makeup, so as not to leave any marks on the clothes.
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Try-On Round 1…
This is the Vince Camuto leopard print top. It’s really nice! The fabric has a nice weight and feel to it, just a little heavier and crisper than the “rumpled satin” fabric in the same style. I’m wearing a Small here, would say that it runs TTS. Unfortunately the print is a little too dark and heavy for me, otherwise I’d happily keep it.
This lightweight cotton-blend sweater has 3/4 length sleeves that are gathered at the shoulders, and is still available in several colors. I’m wearing size Small, and would say it runs TTS. It’s a little long on me, though, and the color has a slightly blue undertone, so it will be going back.
I was on the fence about this tee. The colors are good, but it was too long for me. (Those who are taller or long-waisted may appreciate the length!) Ultimately I decided I didn’t need another leopard tee, but if you’re looking for a lightweight, fun summer tee, you might want to consider it. I’m wearing a Small.
This is a really cute little bag! It’s lightweight and a perfect size for daily use. The webbed strap makes it comfortable to wear, and can be switched out for other straps. Again, the colors not quite right for me, so it will be going back. I’m seeing that it’s showing up as sold out at the moment, but but if you like it, bookmark and keep checking back. At least one will be returned to inventory by the end of the week. 😉
I loved the cut and fit of this lightweight cotton jacket, but felt the print was too soft and cool for me. This is a nice budget-friendly piece, and as of yesterday was still available in all sizes. I’m wearing a Petite Small.
But yes, there were a couple of keepers in this batch (aside from my Kiehl’s lotion…)
Now that I’m working out daily, I’ve decided that I need to invest in some activewear. This Zella twist-front top is really lightweight and comfortable! Bonus: the fabric is sustainably manufactured. I wore it yesterday for my workout. Wearing size Small. (Yoga pants purchased previously.)
Yes, they also have a bit of black in the pattern, but since I’m not wearing them near my face, it’s workable. They were also still available in most sizes as of yesterday.
Don’t get discouraged right away if something you’re interested in is sold out. A lot of people shop online like I do, ordering multiple sizes or colors and keeping only a few. So keep checking back on your favorites; they may very well be re-stocked.
