Sale Away!

ECCO “Groove” Sandal in Metallic

The Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale is on, and it’s a good one, with lots of current season items! I’ve perused the offerings online and thought I’d share some of my recommended picks.

The ECCO sandals above are a great choice if you’re planning a summer vacation that will involve a lot of walking. Yes, I’d wear these in Paris! Metallic is a great neutral, and these have excellent cushioning and support.

NYDJ Alisha Ankle Jean

If you’ve been thinking about adding some colored denim to your summer wardrobe, the “Alisha” jeans from NYDJ are a great choice. They’re available in several colors, and at this price, you may want to go for multiples. Available in Regular and Petite sizes. For Plus sizes, try the Audrey style.

Eileen Fisher Silk Jersey Tee

Eileen Fisher silk jersey tees are on sale in a few select colors. Again, if you’re planning to travel, I recommend these for light weight, packability, washability and ease of layering. Plus sizes available too, here.

Alexis Bittar Raindrop Earrings

I’m a big fan of Alexis Bittar jewelry. Sparkle with an edge. For those who love dangly earrings but can no longer wear heavy pieces, these are ideal.

St. John Keshi Pearl Necklace

Not your grandmother’s pearls! I love the mix of these grey keshis with the gold beads.

Ted Baker Taxi Cab Wallet

With London still on the brain, I’m finding this wallet with the Taxi Cab print absolutely adorable!

For some lucky folks, summer truly means “vacation,” but many of us will still be shlepping to work every day. Perhaps a bright tote will help make that more tolerable?

These are just a few, more of une femme’s picks below.

  1. I like sandals with a closed heel. Nothing is worse than riding behind someone with icky heels on an escalator. Cover’em up!

  2. Wonderful suggestions. I was just trying to plot how to scroll through the sale and this helps to focus. Do you/your readers use the online shopping portal Ebates? No obligation. Sign up at The rebate last week for Nordstrom purchases was 14%! This week it is 5%. Rebate check sent quarterly. Many good retailers participate. Clarissa

  3. Fun selections!! I am going to look into the EF tee shirts! Thanks for the heads up!

  4. I put some things in my cart a few days ago, hoping they would sell out. And by golly–they did. Trying not to buy anything for a while.

  5. Those sandals are great! Our best shoe store in town is having a sale this weekend – I’d better get over there and see if they have anything similar!

  6. I’ve never bought anything on sale. I know, strange. But I had a very fashionable grandmother who always warned her granddaughters, that things on sale were things no one else wanted. Of course, that was so many years ago, but the advice has someone stuck with me. However, just bought my first pair of kitten heels, as I have two weddings to go to this summer and I think I’ve officially given up being uncomfortable – so thanks Susan for steering me in that direction!

  7. Amazing items, btw I adore Ecco shoes:) They are so comfortable:)
    The bag is fabulouse:)

    If you wish check out my blog:) and if you like it we can follow each other. Pls leave the comment on my blog if you want it


  8. Ecco shoes are the only brand I can walk in – as in exercise walk – which I do every day I can. They’re worth every penny you pay for them but when they’re on sale that makes them even better! 😉

  9. Wonderful choices, love them all. Especially the silver sandals and colored jeans. That brand is a winner because the fit is excellent! Thanks for the reminder about the sale, I would have missed it.
