The only thing I might keep is the Sam Edelman Palma suede sandals. I was expecting them to be a tan color, but they are actually more of a taupe color which doesn't look all that great with my skin tone I think. Plus, I feel like I already have a couple pairs of shoes in similar style. I do love the look. They are not super comfortable like my other Sam Edelman shoes with big platforms. But they are not too bad considering how high they are. Definitely not something you'd want to walk a lot in though. Again, my biggest peeve with these is the color! I know they also come in black, but I don't want black ones. So, I might save my $100 and return them. I'll think about it. After the sale, they will be $160 though!
This is what they look like on me - the color is more gray than tan in person, unlike the warm tan color as shown in their photos. I do think they are cute though - and true to size - got them in my regular size 6.
I like that there is a zipper on the inside, so you don't have to bother with the ties every time when you put them on or take them off:
The heel is pretty - and they are 5 inches! Seriously, considering they are 5 inches with no platform, they are actually pretty comfortable. But it is all relative of course.
The second item I got was this Donna Morgan snake print and textured faux leather sheath dress. The anniversary sale has it at $118 instead of $178. I really liked the color and print, and I thought it would be a great fall dress.
At the time I ordered, the smallest size they had was size 4. I have never tried this brand before, but I generally wear a size 2 in dresses. But I got it anyways because... well it's Nordstrom and they have a great return policy. I figured that if it ran small, a size 4 would be fine. Besides, I don't mind it being a little loose.
Well, turns out it is just a little TOO loose. The side view is especially awful - just like a sack:
Front and back views are not too terrible, though a little baggy:
Ehhhhh... I can definitely do better for $125ish after tax. It just doesn't work. I do like the color and texture.... and pockets!! It's too bad there is no size 2!
Well, their pictures are very misleading in my opinion, since they show the tank tucked into the skirt. I expected a regular length tank, but it turned out to be one of those short and flowy things that is all the rage right now to pair with high waisted shorts/pants/skirts. I hate it. It doesn't give anyone shape.
I tried to mimic the leather skirt look... Buahahaha....
Ugh, this tank is ridiculous on me. I never....
Print/color and lace shoulder details are cute though - this tank had so much potential...
