If you follow any fashion bloggers at all, then you would have to be living under a rock right now to not know about something called the Nordstorm Anniversary Sale, which is happening right now. The NSale began last week for Nordstrom card holders, and opens to the public on July 17th. I shopped in last year's NSale and bought my beloved Tory Burch riding boots. But I'm not sure if I'll be buying anything in this year's sale. A.) I just came back from studying abroad, which was a costly experience (and I did a little bit of shopping while in France), but B.) which is the main reason, there just seems to be WAY too much blogger buzz about the NSale this year... almost too much that it's turning me off from wanting to buy anything! I have read a lot of bloggers' recaps on it, and everyone seems to be picking out the same items that they're all loving and lusting over. I do love many of the brands that Nordstorm carries, but I personally would rather save up for a more unique item that's truly "mine," not just an on-sale item that every girl and her mother will have come this fall because every blogger instagrammed a picture of it this past July! Okay, rant over, haha. (I did consider buying another pair of Tory Burch riding boots in this year's sale, but I wasn't personally crazy about either style offered this year.)
Anyways, through all of the buzz that Nordstrom is getting right now, it lead me to to think a little bit about my other favorite department store: Dillard's. And then I started wondering, why don't more bloggers ever talk about Dillard's? It seems that throughout the year, so many bloggers are always talking about Nordstrom, Nordstrom, Nordstrom. Again, Nordstrom is a great store that sells some great brands. :-) But personally, I'm just as big of a fan of Dillard's, and I feel that this store often gets overlooked! Fun fact, whenever I shop at Southpark (Charlotte's luxury mall), I always park in the Dillard's parking deck, because Dillard's is my favorite store to see first whenever I enter the mall! So today I thought I would share some of my favorite recent online shopping finds from Dillard's. This post is not sponsored in any way, I just wanted to share some finds that I liked!
I didn't include any of this above, but I should also note that Dillard's is one of my favorite places to look for semi-formal or formal dresses at! Both their juniors and misses departments always seem to kill it for gorgeous formal attire.
Are you a fan of Dillard's? What are your thoughts on how much publicity there has been on the NSale this year (especially in the blogging world)?
