Currently Coveting: Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale

Growing up, I lived for the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale, because it was and still is one of the best sales out there. All these amazing pieces that are fun and fresh go on sale for a limited time, making you feel like you’re getting away with something by buying these pieces! Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale started on Wednesday, and they have a good crop of clothes and accessories on sale for 40% off. I haven’t been able to make it to Nordstrom yet to see what the stores have, but I have definitely been perusing the website, and bookmarking some pieces that I am loving!! Here are some pieces that I will be on the hunt for tomorrow when I hit the Nordstrom store!

Are These Tops Copying Trends or Copying Designs?

This past weekend, I was doing my usual perusal  of online shopping sites like Nordstrom, Lulu’s and of course the ever-trendy Nasty Gal, when I came across two tops that made me wonder where the line between copying trends and copying designs is, because the two tops I came across were copies of ASTR tops I had purchased over the past year. The first top was this pink halter top with a cropped back and buttons down the back from Nasty Gal.

It’s an incredibly cute and sexy top. And, it looked so familiar to me because I bought an nearly identical if not identical ASTR top from Nordstrom last year.

The two tops are strikingly similar. Both are flowy tops with high neck halter necks, a cropped back, and 5 buttons that line the back.
