Hands down, the top 10 things you’re loving right now!

Recently I told a friend of mine, who is also a former Nordstrom Buyer, that writing this blog reminded me of when we were buyers. That was before all the conveniences of computerized reporting, so we would sit in our offices and count BY HAND the number of items sold! Believe it or not, the stores tore tickets when items were sold and sent them to the buying office. Often I would be the last one on the entire floor, counting tickets. It was SO much fun to see what was selling!

Now, I’m doing a similar thing by sharing my picks, seeing what you buy and revealing the winners. And it’s still really fun! Definitely never dreamed it would be like this 🙂 Today’s post is about the Top 10 things you’re loving right now (i.e. the hottest and most popular items that are selling through the blog). And while I’m at it, I decided to include the Top 10 things loved by me! These are items I wear or use ALL THE TIME. Don’t forget, I really value your feedback so please let me know what you think — and of course, I’m here to answer any questions you may have.

Top 10 things you love

1. Jimmy Choo booties – these splurge-worthy booties are very slimming on the foot and are really versatile!

2. Topshop coat – such a deal, and so chic

3. Chelsea 28 sequined top – for only $49, this is a great way to add a little sparkle

4. Madewell shirt jacket – a favorite, and it’s 30% off this weekend

5. Vuori Jogger – the most-loved favorite, all year long

6. Mother “Insider” denim – this is a staple

7. Anine Bing tee – they sell out, so find one you love and grab it. They’re a bit of a splurge but so so cool

8. J.Crew sweater dress – very cozy, 50% off and all 4 colors are amazing

9. Initial necklace – layer it with all your delicate necklaces

10. Rag & Bone blazer – 25% off – it looks nice and polished, but feels cozy like a sweater

 

 

While I’m at it, Top 10 things I love

There are a handful of things I wear over and over again, and that I consider to be good, solid purchases. For example, the Vuori Jogger I’ve talked about soooo many times. Here’s my top 10!

1. Golden Goose sneakers – I was hesitant to splurge at first, but since I’m wearing them non-stop, the CPW (cost per wear) is really low

2. Topshop coat – this is a new addition, but I know it’s gonna be good

3. AllSaints leather jacket – it literally works with everything most months of the year!

4. Madewell denim jacket – 30% off – a workhorse piece for everyone’s wardrobes. I have 4 and wear them all the time. The AG Robyn and Levi’s Ex-boyfriend styles are favorites too

5. Vuori Jogger – same as above! LOVE

6. My beloved denim collection – because imo every outfit starts with good denim! Favorites include the Mother Dazzler, the Mother Weekender, and the Madewell 9″ skinny in Black Sea

7. Anine Bing tees – A little spendy, but so cool

8. Silky camis – Love Cami NYC, Frame and Equipment

9. Natori bliss thong panties – I can’t imagine a world without these panties! I also love Hanky Panky, but these have been my go-to’s lately

10. J.Crew Sophie and Juliette cardigans – 59% off – these look great with all our outfits

11. Cashmere tees (not pictured) – yawn I know I’ve gone on and on about these too, but they layer under everything and they’re super soft – 41% off

 

 

Top 10 stylish accessories

I believe these are the little details that make every outfit. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I wear them on repeat. For example, the Poppy Finch necklace and Gucci sunnies appear in most of my photos. Accessories truly complete your look, so don’t skimp here. Get several!

1. Givenchy bag – a favorite bag that works with every single outfit

2. Nordstrom cashmere/silk blend scarf – the only black scarf I recommend to everyone. It’s lightweight and adds extra warmth

3. Gucci sunnies – perfect shape for smaller faces

4. Bracelet collection – these David Yurman chain link and Monica Vinader rose gold bracelets are perfect for layering. Also love this Brinker & Eliza, and this silver Monica Vinader style

5. Gucci wallet on chain – so many options with this bag: tuck the chain and wear it as a clutch, double the chain for an over-the-shoulder option, or wear it as a crossbody

6. Dior bracelets – you’ll wear these over and over

7. Neutral heels – the single most worn shoe in my collection – except this year they’re gently put aside waiting for better days ahead

8. YSL mini-lou bag – tiny, but a lot fits in this little bag. The marble pink color is from last season, newer colors here

9. Gucci scarf – it’s the prettiest shade of gray and the perfect weight, and it’s not scratchy! Other colors available here

10. Silver watch – the mesh strap is so delicate. It’s a favorite watch, along with this Michele style I’ve had for over 10 years … and still wear all the time!

11. Charlotte Tilbury Kidman’s Kiss – my go-to lipstick most days

  1. Hi Susie,
    First of all, let me say I love your blog. I know you don’t need any help, but I would add my favorite “terry joggers” to your list! They’re from the T by Talbots Athleisure collection. I have them in Black, Navy, Olive and “greyish”. So comfortable that I reach for them everyday…when I’m not wearing J. Jill’s indigo knit jeans. In my personal experience the best cashmere sweaters are from Boden. Loads of colors, excellent quality and great customer service. I also like Everlane. Been buying them for many years and they still look good. I agree, you can’t beat J. Crew for a huge range of cashmere colors at incredible prices.

    Have a wonderful holiday. Stay safe!

  2. Nice to see what you and everybody are enjoying! I do love my vuori joggers and all cashmere! Not to leave out the j.Crew cardigans I am in all the time. I have become a Charlotte Tilbury fan as well… keep up the great work! So fun to give things a try knowing the quality is dependable.

  3. I love hearing stories about being a buyer at Nordstrom! I remember those tickets – I think they were part of the tag attached to the garment? I remember the different colors of tags representing the different sizes? I think green was size small? Are those the tickets you mentioned? I’ve been shopping at Nordstrom since the first store opened outside the Pacific Northwest. The South Coast Plaza store opened in 1978, and I was there on opening day at age 9 with my mom and sisters!

      1. I think I remember which sizes went with the tag colors:
        XS- coral
        S – green
        M – pink
        L – yellow
        XL – white
        I may have the sizes mixed up, but I think those were the colors of the tags! Maybe someone who worked there pre-computer days does remember and can confirm.
