As promised we’re keeping the Make Our Size edit going and this time around we’re doing swimwear. This one was a bit of a challenge, for obvious or not so obvious reasons. The challenge was finding a swimsuit that we both LIKED, complimented our figures and made us both feel pretty.
If you haven’t heard or been under a rock you should know the Nordstrom’s anniversary sale has begun!! Well at least for credit cardholders and certain over-achieving Nordy club members (Nordstrom’s loyalty program); guilty and guilty we get early access. I didn’t want the card I promise, they practically forced it on me, scouts honor, wait I was never a scout, minor details folks, MINOR DETAILS…lol Seriously, for the rest of the planet it starts July 19th!! Mark your calendars folks!!!
I think we can all agree there’s nothing like a good sale but Nordstrom’s annual anniversary sale, is the sale of ALL sales!!!
While most department store sales offer discounts on stuff you aren’t all that excited about; Nordstrom doesn’t. They have the deals on the most coveted brands, discounts anywhere from 40-50%, sometimes more. For a fashionista who’s balling on a budget like myself, you don’t want to miss this sale!!
So without further ado, here are a few things I’ve had my eye on. Some pieces I’ll probably never purchase but they’ve caught my eye just the same. Full disclosure I’ve already ordered two coats for the Fall because I just couldn’t help myself. It was an amazing deal and I had Nordy bucks (free money). Honestly I have my eye on a ton of pieces, this sale is so overwhelming, so many yummy items to choose from. This literally is just the tip of the iceberg.
I’d like to give you guys more but the way my team is set up: technology: me, editing: me and recently added Alex, creative direction: me, content: me; we can only do so much. If me and the rest of my “team” have a few extra hours to kill from now until the end of the sale (sale ends August 4th) I may do another round. But I can’t make any promises; stay tuned either way.
PRETTY IN PINK
I can hardly believe it’s been an ENTIRE year since we first launched It’s Very Necessary (IVN)! What a ride it has been?! The mission is the same to save as many people as possible from unfortunate fashion choices; whether it be for work or play…lol I want to inspire women and men to be the best version of themselves, fashionably. I sincerely hope I’ve done that to some degree. And if not you guys let me know and mama will work on it ;-).
My very first post featured the lovely Laila Beale (my youngest daughter). What a shoot that was, the heat, the outfit changes, the bribery (yes I had to bribe her with new toys just to get her to cooperate). It was all worth it. Our first post was quite the hit. Look how far we’ve come. No bribery was involved for this shoot, she’s a professional now.
