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!

Currently Coveting: Rain Rain, Don’t Go Away

 

I LOVE the rain. For many reasons. I love the smell, I love the sound, I love how clean everything looks after a good rain. But most importantly, I love cold weather/rain fashion. For some reason, I think I look better in sweaters, and vests, and boots, and coats. So, any chance I get in this current California drought, to rock some of these pieces, I get really excited!! The past week or so has seen cold weather and some rain in Southern California, which means I get to bust out my favorite pieces from closet. Take a look at some of the pieces that I’m currently coveting and inspired by for this wet weather!

Met Gala 2015: My Favorite Looks

The first Monday of May is my favorite Monday of the year because it’s Met Gala Monday!! Celebrities and fashionistas alike come together to celebrate the newest Costume Institute exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. I love the Met Gala because it’s a chance for fashion geeks like me to salivate over some of the most beautiful couture, inspired by the exhibit’s theme.

This year’s exhibit is China: Through the Looking Glass and explores how Chinese aesthetics, art and culture has influenced Western designers and the pieces they create. The museum’s website describes the exhibit as “[h]igh fashion will be juxtaposed with Chinese costumes, paintings, porcelains, and other art, including films, to reveal enchanting reflections of Chinese imagery,” and that it “will feature more than one hundred examples of haute couture and avant-garde ready-to-wear alongside Chinese art.

Some attendees really took the Chinese theme to heart and incorporated these looks in their ensembles, while others may have stayed away from the theme but still looked utterly gorgeous in their gowns. Take a look at my favorite looks below!
