Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Fitting Room Try-Ons Part 3! Up in this post, the blazers! If you are looking for a review on the Veronica Beard Blazer, read this post here. It remains my #1 favorite from the sale, but there are some good contenders here in this post in nicer price points. Please also read the comments on the Veronica Beard post because reader opinions are mixed on it, which I find super helpful when reading reviews. I want to hear both sides, even if I still love an item.
I should mention, since we are talking sales, it’s Amazon Prime Day today. I’m not a prime member so not shopping this sale, but if you are looking for fitness gadgets or appliances, now is the time. If you have recommendations to share, post them in the comments.
J. Crew Dover Blazer
I really wanted to try on the Dover blazer in the bubble gum pink color, but the store I went to yesterday had just one size left and it was two sizes too big. Don’t worry about it being sold out though, it’s currently available online in most sizes if you are wanting it so you don’t have to hunt very hard to get it. The color is adorable and so fun, but when I tried on the Navy I thought I liked the navy a bit better for it’s versatility. The fit was spot on in my TTS and I would absolutely pick this blazer up at another time. I think if I had fallen in love with the pink over the navy I would have felt more of a ‘need to have it right now’ feeling, but navy is a color that will pop up again at some point. I think this is a great price for a fun blazer and it was my top pick from all the blazers I tried on. I do really love the pink and I can see it pairing with a lot of great combinations, but it’s such a statement color that for that reason I wouldn’t wear it as often as navy. I also don’t prefer a double-breasted button, and in the pink it’s obvious whereas the navy you don’t see the double-breasted closure.
Frame Plaid Double Breasted Wool Blazer
This Frame Blazer is incredible quality for the price point and if this style suits your body type I think it’s a great investment piece. The color is really versatile with a subtle pattern that gives it interest, and the material is wonderful. I think this is a generous TTS but not a size down. I love how it flares out at the hem when it’s left open, and creates an indent at the waistline. This is too boxy a cut for my body type though and again, I don’t love double breasted on me. It’s beautiful and I highly recommend it if you are
Olivia Moon Cotton Blend Knit Blazer
The most casual of all the blazers! I tried to find the other casual James Perse cotton blazer but the store didn’t have it. I really like the upturned lapel on this style and I have another blazer that has this exact cut. It’s flattering if you are hippy because it directs your eyes up. I didn’t love this one in this color on me, but I liked it overall. It’s TTS. I would have loved this one in the pink that’s online or the black. I find this grey is too casual and sweatshirt like while the other colors are slightly more elegant. I think I’m too much in a preppy blazer mood to have preferred this one, but at another time in my life I would have definitely gravitated to this one. It’s so cute and I love the print of the lining peeping out in the cuff. The price point is fantastic on this and if you are thinking of getting a hoodie, don’t! Get this instead of a hoodie! You will look so stylish but you will feel like you are wearing a hoodie. I might get this at the end of season sales in November or January.
Up next, coats and jackets. If you are tired of reading ‘I liked this’ or ‘I loved this!’, you will enjoy the next post. There were several busts in that one including an item that was previously on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Wish List.
