Shopcade Spotlight: Nordstrom’s ‘Anniversary Sale’ Fall Essentials

07-21-13-placement-01-cid071913621-juniors-fashionbash-7-adam-67bbb12b-db1e-4895-acae-a1e701888c42-fil-fileYou may be sweating it out in shorts and flips flops right now but believe it or not, fall is right around the corner.

The best way to kick off any season is by adding a few new essentials to your wardrobe. With Shopcade and Nordstrom’s annual “Anniversary Sale’ you can do just that — at a discount.

The ‘Anniversary Sale’ is an annual event at Nordstrom that celebrates the merchants birthday as well as the beginning of fall by marking down brand new designer merchandise for fall. But after August 4 all the prices go back up not coming down again on designer product until the items are marked down as the season ends.

Don’t know what you need for fall? Here are a few essentials you will need as the seasons change:

Light sweaters are great transitional pieces. L-R Halogen, Caslon, and Vince Camuto.

 

Lightweight sweaters

There is no better transitional piece than a lightweight sweater. You can find some colorful pieces from lower-priced brands like Halogen and Caslon to wear now as it gets chilly in the evenings and in the fall over button-ups and with jeans. Cobalt is a great color to take you from season to season.

Frye boots

 

 

 

Boots

A great pair of neutral boots is essential for any season! Nordstrom has a great selection ranging from flat booties to heeled knee-highs in a variety of materials and colors. A great basic to invest in is a pair of great flat knee or calf-high boots like a pair by leather goods brand ‘Frye.’ Though the price point for a pair from Frye may be a little high the classic boots will last you years and never go out of style — the perfect fashion investment.

 

Another great look to go for is a pair of heeled booties in a neutral, or funky, color. Vince Camuto has a great selection of short heeled booties in classic caramel and black as well as a great burgundy and leopard print. You really can’t go wrong with any of the color selections — all look good paired with dresses and tights as well as skinny jeans for a more casual look.

Vince Camuto “Vive” booties are great in any color.

 

Jackets

If you are looking for a new fall jacket make sure you look to leather — or at least a great faux leather. A leather jacket is a wardrobe staple but you don’t have to go with the classic motorcycle look in black. Try a piece in burgundy or brown, with a belt, or with a quilted finish. You can find them long and short, with zippers and snaps, collars and hoods.

After styling Carolyn Malachi for her music video, “All Right” Shopcade has partnered with the Grammy nominated artist again to dress her for an upcoming appearance on the television show “The Daily Buzz.”

In this mission starting Tuesday, July 16 Shopcade stylists will search through thousands of fashionable pieces on Shopcade to build the perfect summer look for Carolyn to wear when she launches her new album, Gold.

In this challenge instead of deleting items to create the perfect look Shopcade stylists will build their own keeping in mind some of Carolyn’s favorite brands, her personal style, and summer trends.

Hint: A few brands stylists might want to check out are ASOS, ModCloth and Ann Taylor — among others.

The winning stylist will not only get to see their look on Carolyn on “The Daily Buzz” but also take it home for themselves!

Style Carolyn now!

 

Shopcade Stylist For A Day: Carolyn Malachi Debuts “All Right”

on

The look was picked, the video was shot, and here it is!

After receiving hundreds of submissions Carolyn and her team selected the look put together on Shopcade by Sam Thomas for her new music video for “All Right.”

carolynvideoimage1

Her stylists used that selected look as inspiration for their styling in the video. They used elements from Sam’s Caché dress pick including the strong black one-shoulder, fitted torso, and prominent purple print for their dress selection from Linda Asaf. Carolyn also sported a woven Ettika bracelet like the one chosen by Sam. The look was both strong and soft, exactly what Carolyn and her team were looking for!

Here is Carolyn on set in the look:

The winner will not only see their look on Carolyn but win it for themselves!

Shopcade Style Survey: Calling All Trendsetters

We’ve loved viewing your Registry Envy and StyleCrush lists and we hope you have enjoyed all of our June Wedding Lists.

All of your great wedding style and gift picks made us wonder:

  • How much does it cost you to look fab for a special event?
  • Do you think guests should give a gift “that covers the cost of their plate”?

We hope you’ll take our Wedding Style Survey. It will take less than 5 minutes, and we’ll share the results here on the Shopcade blog.

As a ‘Thank You,’ we’re giving away a $25 gift card from FineStationery.com to two randomly-selected survey entrants. (U.S. Only, 18+ Years to Enter)

FineStationery.com is a favorite of brides, who love the chic “Save the Date” cards, invitations, thank you notes and more. But you’ll also find a wide variety of unique, classic or trendy party invitations, baby announcements, and holiday cards too!

Style is about more than what you wear. How you treat others will make you stand-out from the crowd. Sending a hand-written thank you note or letter is memorable precisely because it’s so rare. Just as fashion changes with the season, so does stationery.  When it comes to personalized stationery, FineStationery.com offers hundreds of designs by the top brands to fit any trendsetter’s style.
