Yes, I’m still talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale but I’m discussing this as a separate item because these particular finds deserve your undivided attention. If you haven’t already, you need to strongly consider snatching up some truly unbelievable investment pieces during this sale. I’m specifically talking about the Designer section, where you’re going to find the timeless and wardrobe-essential pieces that carry a lot of sticker shock the rest of the year. Please remember that these are brand new pre-fall designer items—not the stuff they couldn’t sell from last year. This sale is fresh, people. In particular, I suggest thinking about a few key professional wardrobe investments, like the following: a gorgeous navy fit and flare dress that’s comfortable and effortless to accessorize, a similarly classic (but black wool, so chic) dress that I’m going to get so much wear out of, a blush Max Mara dress that will be worn to every special occasion forever, a St. John knit dress that’s the kind of classic work piece you’ll keep until you retire (and probably after that, too), the cutest wear-with-everything Veronica Beard houndstooth jacket, and an absolutely essential silk blouse that, when properly cared for, will be with you forever.
