The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale-Capsule Wardrobe Outfits

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale-Capsule Wardrobe Outfits 1502 556 Tammy Caciola

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

It’s that time of year when we all have the chance to stock up for our fall closets at significant discounts at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Your Nordstrom card is your ticket to savings! A Norstrom card let you access this sale 1-week earlier before it goes public. One of the many benefits of having a Nordstrom credit card! Apply here if you haven’t yet. You will also earn points for every purchase you make, which believe me, add up! You can convert to cash or redeem them on your next purchase.

This sale is known for its good clothing and beauty items to sell out very quickly. So if you see what you want in your size and the color you want, I highly suggest you purchase it right away, or it might not be available an hour later, seriously! That said they will restock items occasionally, so check back if you see a sold-out sign.

The size of this sale is quite impressive. Below I have gathered just a very curated edit of what I’m buying. Mostly just everyday, elevated pieces I can easily mix and match. When you shop like this, your options are endless, and you won’t need to buy as much. You are creating a capsule wardrobe.

I do have other sale content to be coming to you in the near future, and as always you can find pieces and outfits uploaded daily to my Liketoknow.it page. 


If you’re unfamiliar with Liketoknow.it,  it’s a quick way to shop my daily looks. The first thing you to do is go to www.liketoknowit.com  and register. You can also download the app on your phone and register there. Next, you will need to search my name, Herfashionedlife, under search influencers, and follow me. That’s all it takes!  You can then quickly scroll through my shoppable outfits and finds on that app or your computer. In addition, anytime you screenshot a picture on your phone from my feed or stories, a shoppable email will be sent to you automatically.

After you have the app downloaded, another easy way to shop is on Instagram.  For that simple way to shop, follow me on Instagram HERE, go to an outfit post you like, screenshot it on your phone and you will get a shoppable email sent to you.

Lastly, if you shop on this website, you do not need to sign up for Liketoknow.it. You can get right to what you want just by clicking the link.

I make a small commission off your purchase only if you do one of the above. I truly appreciate it when you shop any of the methods above because it not only helps me to know what your liking so I can give you more of that but making that commission helps validate all of the hours I put into this business, which makes me want to continue in this space.

Capsule Wardrobe

Developing a capsule wardrobe is all the trend today. However, it does not have to break the bank. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the perfect time to save big on the stylish pieces that are easily mixed and matched into multiple outfits.

Below I have restyled several pieces for you in different looks. This post is your capsule wardrobe edit of the fabulous sale.

Leopard Dress with Staud Bag

Dress size S

This dress is so versatile, and I love the shorter length. In the fall you can layer a sweater over it and pair with your OTKnee boots or booties. You will definitely see me in this dress again with a red sweatshirt over it and white sneakers!

Off the shoulder cardi

Cardi 4 colors Size S // Jeans // Blouse // Crossbody bag

This Cardigan is from Topshop. It is the star cardigan of the #nsale every year with a different style but always the softest knit against the skin! The light colors sell out quickly. I picked up this gray and oatmeal.

Wearing mostly solids can get a little boring. However, when you add print in your accessories, everything changes! Love this crossbody bag for doing that.

Casual sexy sweater

Sweater // Jeans

These jeans are from last year, and they brought them back to the sale this year. I love the fit and details, and at $44.00, they are a no-brainer. My button-up sweater is so soft! It can also be worn unbuttoned over a t-shirt or buttoned up over a dress.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Sweater // Denim Skirt // Heels // Sunnies // Purse

So much love for the camel sweater! Again very soft, affordable, and versatile. My neutral heels are all elastic and very comfortable for a higher heel! A denim skirt with cute details is a basic piece to have for sure. (Size down one size)

See the interest the bag brings to this outfit?

Airport Outfit

Sweatshirt // Joggers // Purse // Leopard Trench

This cozy jogger set can be easily styled in so many ways! It is perfect for travel and every day. (Size up one size)

Leopard Trench

Leopard Trench // Purse

This statement-making leopard trench is the hero piece of this capsule wardrobe. Toss it over any neutral outfit to give it a WOW factor! My croc-embossed tote bag literally will go with any outfit. It has plenty of organization pockets and separators inside and is real leather. I love the on-trend shorter shoulder strap.

Leopard Dress Chanel Coco Bag

Dress // Heels

The last I looked at the site, this leopard dress was sold out. Actually, all leopard dresses were sold out 🙁 They hopefully will restock when the sale goes public on the 19th though. Be ready if you love it, it will go quick again. This dress is amazing and under $35.00.  I can’t wait to layer Cardigans, knotted button-up shirts, and t-shirts over it. Also, turtleneck bodysuit would be so cute layered under it.

Leopard trench over knee boots

Leopard Trench // Blouse // Jeans // OTKnee boots // Purse

This outfit is chic and ready for your everyday. These boots are very comfortable and have a skinny cut to the top, so they look much more expensive than they are. (under $100)  Suede in the front and elastic in the back ensures they will stay up.

Let’s talk elevated basics now. The black blouse above and white blouse below are perfect examples. This fabric has a bit of a crinkle texture that adds interest and is synthetic so they will stay crisp white and last longer. They are also longer so you can untuck and wear over leggings.

These leggings are all the rage and on sale so definitely grab some. I have them and love them!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Cardi // Blouse // Jeans // OTKnee boots // Crossbody bag

All the same above, pieces just put together differently. On warmer days, ditch the OTKnee boots for sneakers and switch out the cardi for a knotted white tee or wear the cute blouse alone.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Cardi // Blouse // Jeans // OTKnee boots // Crossbody bag

A lighter cardigan that is not as bulky for layering over outfits will go along way! The crossbody is giving interest, and the blouse is AMAZING. Again, switch out the OTKnee boots for sandals for sneakers on warmer days.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Animal Print Blouse // Suede Skirt // Heels // Purse

I reach for mini-skirts over shorts. This neutral suede skirt can be styled so many ways! With sneakers and a knotted t-shirt,  boots and a sweater, endless possibilities.  The zippers give it a little edge. I also love this animal print blouse with the wide arm openings!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Denim Skirt // Sweater // Bag // Heels

The same pieces just mixed into a different outfit.

Leopard Dress

Dress // Heels // Bag

This round croc-embossed bag adds a little solid jade green color to this busy print.

Airport Outfit

Leopard Trench // Sweatshirt // Joggers // Tote

A chic airport outfit that is comfortable and functional!

Wrap Belt

A belt can pull your whole outfit together and instantly give you a polished look. You can turn flowy or bulky ensembles into flattering looks by wearing a belt that defines your waist. I cannot wait to tie this belt over a blazer in the fall!

Half the fun of a wrap belt is the multiple ways you can tie it! Below I have mine tied three different ways in this post. However, there are so many more ways to style this belt! There are multiple video tutorial found HERE. 

I also love a wrap belt because sometimes I do not want to deal with a metal emblem. Should it be gold, silver, large or small? With an all-leather belt, you do not have to worry about any of that.

SAVINGS: Use the code TAMMY15 for 15% off of your purchase at ADA Collection

I’ve tied my wrap belt below by wrapping it around the waist once, and then I tied a bow.

Striped Kimino with arc bag

Here my belt is wrapped twice around the waist, and then I tied it in the back for a minimal flat feel.

How To Wear Denim On New Year’s Eve

How To Wear Denim On New Year’s Eve 722 1080 Tammy Caciola

Sequin Top // Denim // Heels // similar Bag // Sunnies // Earrings

Wearing Denim On New Year’s Eve Night

New Year’s Eve is the type of holiday where anything goes as far as sparkle and glam for your outfit. However, that doesn’t mean you need to wear a fancy dress. Rethink your ensemble by wearing comfy denim jeans instead. Save the self-tanner and shaving your legs is optional… You can put together a chic, elevated look with the 4 tips below.

  1. Your jeans will be very understated. I mean you can also wear them to a football game. This means everything else needs to have a wow factor. Definitely look for an over the top sequin blouse, beautiful heels, and clutch.
  2. Keep the lines fun but tailored. Don’t choose denim that is overly distressed or has holes in the knees. Usually, the best fit for denim at night is skinny fit with a dark wash. I love these Levi’s I have on because they have a cool vintage feel but also fit amazing! And.. they come in a billion colors.
  3. Choose a clutch over a shoulder or crossbody bag. It just says “night out” more.
  4. The heels should be as high as you can comfortably wear all night. That might be a kitten heel or a 4″ heel, but definitely some type of heel to elevate your look.
  5. Add a luxe belt if you are tucking in your blouse.

I hope this will help open up some fun and chic options for you on New Year’s Eve!

The Must Have Lace Suit For Party Season 720 1080 Tammy Caciola

Lace Suit www.HerFashionedLife.com

Lace Suit – Lux Rox Boutique // Sunnies // Earrings // Chanel Bag //  Chanel Mules –Dupe

Chic In All Lace

Lace can be tricky to pull off. You don’t want to look tacky or cheap, or like you are in grade school!  However, with the right styling, you can elevate an all lace outfit to have a modern, grown-up look.

Lace is best styled with contrast. When you mix in tailored and structured pieces, this delicate fabric will look fabulous!  The bold gold necklaces I’m wearing along with the structured Chanel bag, bring a touch of edgy sophistication I love. Finishing off with large, glam sunglasses and black nails adds a little sexiness.

Balance the Feminity with edgy sophistication.

The chic effect from toughing up lace with leather is classic and undeniable! Your moto jacket will be a lace dresses bff!

Versatile Options

You can also wear the suit as separates making it so versatile! Pair the blazer with a crew-neck t-shirt and denim. Add sneakers for day and heels for date night! The same way I styled in this post here.  Wear the lace pants with a chunky knit or t-shirt and denim jacket.

I love all things Sandro Paris right now and their beautiful lace section has the pieces styled perfectly on the models! They are mixing in denim and sneakers into their ensembles to give a casual daytime feel.

So the next event you have to go to step out of your comfort zone and wow everyone in a lace suit!

Styling One Dress Four Ways For The Holidays

Styling One Dress Four Ways For The Holidays 720 1080 Tammy Caciola

white sneakers with flowers www.HerFashionedLife.com

This holiday season, do yourself a favor and buy the perfect little black dress that will take you to multiple events no matter what the dress code is. Think of this dress as your base canvas. Then build your outfit over the dress depending on the occasion. The styling possibilities are endless! Below I’m breaking down four styling options for you, brunch, drinks out, movie day and Thanksgiving dinner. I also have written about 5 Ways To Stand Out In Your LBD here!

Choosing Your Little Black Dress

When you’re looking for a perfect LBD, it’s all about the fabric and cut. The dress that I’m wearing in this post has fabric you can simply roll up, put in your suitcase and unpack it, unwrinkled when you get there. I love a low maintenance dress for holiday travel that always looks great!

This cut you want to be somewhat form-fitting, but not tight. Look for a length just above or below the knee and clean, classic lines. You want this base layer to translate from an office party to drinks out flawlessly. Look for a dress that makes you feel beautiful and comfortable when you wear it.

Don’t be afraid to spend more than you normally would on a dress to get quality fabric and perfect cut!

Keep scrolling to read more about the chic dress I’m wearing at the end of this post.

Brunch is always something I look forward to, but this could also be a casual Thanksgiving dinner look. I wore a cozy cropped jacket over and scrunched boots in the same nude tone. My hair is effortlessly pulled back into an easy ponytail with a ribbon. The bag I’m carrying has the handle wrapped with a skinny scarf also in the blush color pallet.

This look is a trendy night out look I love. If you do not have a leopard jacket yet, you need one! I like to stock up on classic animal prints when they are trending. Leopard will ALWAYS be in style!

I choose a fun studded boot here for comfort. However,  knee-high or OTK boots with a heel would look stunning as well. They would also keep you warmer if it were cold outside.  A clutch is more night-time friendly to be. The black leather and simple lines with gold bar tend to tone down the jacket and boots here.

Movie Day

A movie day is always a part of my families holidays. Nothing better than seeing the new Hollywood blockbuster out on a lazy day!

Layer denim or other casual fabrics such as cozy plaid flannels over your dress. Then add sneakers with a crossbody, and you’re ready to go.

Your Guide To Buying Designer Resale Fashion

Your Guide To Buying Designer Resale Fashion 1620 1080 Tammy Caciola

Your guide to resale fashion Balmain top Silk kimono jacket Silk kimono jacket Silk kimono jacket

Designer Resale

I am, much to my husband’s chagrin, a self-proclaimed shopping addict. I so love beautiful clothes, bags, and shoes! If you are like me,  and love designer pieces, there is no better way to purchase them at a substantial discount than at The RealReal. I have been shopping this online resale site for a couple of years now, and I’m obsessed with it! If you’re not familiar with The RealReal,  it’s time to do yourself a favor and check out the majorly designer pieces!

The site can be overwhelming considering the massive amount of inventory they have. I’ve received alot of questions about how to navigate the site. So I wanted to share my tips that will help you find the items you love for 70% off without wasting your time shopping around in circles.

1. Know Your Size

When your out shopping, go ahead and try on the Gucci shoes and Burberry trench that you LOVE….but cannot justify paying the high price. Because you might find that exact piece for 70% off and you will want to be able to click buy now with confidence and a big smile, knowing you just scored a fantastic deal!

2. Start Obsessing

Use the hearts next to the items to bookmark them to your obsessions tab. This lets you keep track of items your interested in. Also, if they go on sale that will be reflected there. Highly coveted items will go very quickly so don’t wait long if you know you want it. I am still bummed about missing out on a gorgeous Chloe denim long coat because I waited too long to pull the trigger.

3. Use The 20% Discount Code

There will be a 20% off code at the top of the screen in red! Use that code when you check out. It will apply to pretty much everything except Chanel Bags and a couple of other high-end brands. They will be marked letting you know there is not a discount available.

4. Search Tool

Searching for the exact item you’re looking for is easy. Click on the magnifying tool in the top right corner and just type in what you want.. for example —MaxMara Coat. Then choose “refine” to select your size, color and such. When the results pop up, you can push save, and that search will go into your feed.

5. Customize “Your Feed”

There is a feature only on their app called a feed. This is my go-to way to shop the site! Starting your personalized feed is easy. Start by using their search tool. (See above) When I go to the sight, I mainly scroll my feed for items I’m on the lookout for. Your feed can be more general also, like Frame tops in size XS, or you can also specify a color. It’s super easy and addicting!

The good pieces sell FAST, and this lets you see them right away!

6. Wait List

So you search for your perfect shoe or bag, and it’s sold out! Click “add to the wait list” to be notified if the item comes back in stock. Also, if you have an item on your obsessions that just sold, add it to your waitlist, and you will be notified if it gets returned!

7. Returns

Be sure to click on the Returns Policy tab, next to the details, on every item you purchase. It will be different if the item is more than 20% off. Most Chanel is non-returnable. ALWAYS check this so you don’t get caught with something that doesn’t fit or you end up not liking. You also have to pay the return shipping. However, you do get access to a convenient printable label.

8. Authentic Guaranty

You can purchase with confidence because The RealReal has a team of experts that authenticates every item and gives you a 100% guarantee or your money back.

I hope this guide inspires you to score some designer goods for your closet!

I’d love to hear if you have bought resale fashion before and what your experience was in the comments below!
