Me and many other bloggers across the insta-verse, and blogosphere have been covering this sale a lot so I thought I would write a different post with items you shouldn’t buy from the sale and why. I’ve read a lot about people feeling disappointed because they can’t shop or feel worse about their income or the fact that they were saving money. I never want anyone to feel bad after reading my blog or seeing my Instagram posts! So I hope this post helps both shoppers and non-shoppers feel better because you absolutely do not need everything from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
What NOT to Buy at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
I obviously shopped a ton and love Nordstrom and this sale, so it is in no way intended to be disrespectful to the brand, but everything won’t be a hit. I tried all of these items because i truly thought that I would love them, but some just didn’t work out! Generally, I’d not buy items that are the wrong size, are uncomfortable, not your style, or just something you aren’t comfortable in just because it’s on sale. Those purchases aren’t worth it and usually end up getting returned anyways!
First up, is this dress. I love Leith as a brand and think they have so many great dresses, however this one in particular was a major miss. It’s super thin and shows EVERYTHING. I’m a pretty small person and I was very uncomfortable in this dress! In this pic below you can see the lace on my bra and my seamless no-show underwear through the fabric of the dress. Wait, is that my belly button? No, thank you!
Next up was this jumpsuit. I think I’m just not a fan of the style but it looked a little blob-like and was not the most flattering cut on me. It was basically 2 pieces of rectangular fabric sewn together with a string to hold it up. The neckline was an odd cross between a V neck and crew neck because it was loose on what I just considered a draw string and the arm holes weren’t even cut round. Not worth the $43 price tag.
This cardigan is one that many people will disagree with me on. I know a lot of bloggers are pushing it, but I just don’t like the balloon sleeve trend. I think this particular sweater is too long, chunky, and really just too much for me.
I really hated this jumpsuit on me. I’ve seen it on other girls and it’s looked so cute. On me? No I look like I should be in a big top. The fit was actually really good, but the print was too much and the style was definitely not me!
I only tried on things that I thought I would like that turned out not so great. I’d love to hear about your experiences if you shopped the sale!
