Dressing Room

I am all about Spring and Summer dresses.  Dresses are always my favorite!!

The days it feels like Spring makes me want to go get a spray tan and wear all the dresses.  Since Easter, graduation, and wedding season are right around the corner I tried on some of the cutest options I wanted to share with you.

This dress comes in such fun colors, the one I’m wearing is berry.  This dress is more dramatic in person.  The top layer is an open chiffon that drapes over a mock neck dress.  It’s flowy and fun.  Would be fun for Easter or a Spring wedding.

Berry Mock Neck Dress

I love love love this red A-line dress with the bow at the neck.  It’s more fitted and less forgiving than a fit and flare dress but soooo sooo cute.  This dress definitely makes a statement and would be perfect for a wedding or summer cocktail party.  It also comes in black.

How can you not have fun if you’re wearing a hot pink dress with this fun ruffle sleeve?  Sign me up for anywhere I can wear this dress. 🙂  It’s a simple crepe dress with a punch of color and that statement sleeve.  F-U-N and flattering.

Pink shift dress with bow

I’m ready to dance the night away in this dress.  It is so flattering, the fit and flare style.  The details of the lace and ruffles and the open back make this dress so special.  The last thing I need is another black dress but this one is perfection.

Lace fit and flare dress

This dress would be perfect for work on days you want to keep things simple.  I love the stripes and the shift dress style makes it super flattering.  Its wool and cotton so it would be great for winter and spring and also comes in a red color combo.

Boden stripe dress

This Kobi Halperin dress is all about the statement SLEEVE.  It fits like a glove.  The fabric is thick and so soft.  The color is Midnight (Navy) with black details

Statement sleeve

Ok I hope you found some options you like.






Happy Friday girlies!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is happening.  If you are a Nordstrom cardholder you get early access to the Anniversary Sale goodies for Fall.  This is all new Fall merchandise that for the next few weeks is on major sale.  After August 7th the prices go up so get stocked up for fall now.

I had a short window of time last night to check out the sale but I found some amazing wardrobe staples.  Here are some Fall must’s for under $50.

I’ll be adding all my other items soon but wanted to give you a sneak peak.  XOXO  Sarah

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is coming up next week.  July 13th for cardholders, July 21st for non-card holders and the prices go back up August 8th.

I wanted to give you all the scoop on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and why you’ll want to check it out.

This sale is unlike any sale.  All of the items are brand new Fall items, new to the store marked down 40-60%.  After the sale ends all of these items go back up to regular price.  It is time to make a list for what you need for Fall:  jeans, boots, sweaters, tops, accessories, athletic wear, handbags, etc.

Remember Nordstrom offers free returns and free shipping so its the best time to shop while the sale is going on and you can always return later.  If you are in-between sizes I’d recommend ordering two sizes because so many items sell out fast.

If you are in St. Louis I’d recommend making a free appointment with Amber Kemp, the personal shopper to help you maneuver the sale.  Her email is:  amber.r.kemp@nordstrom.com

Hope you find tons of goodies.  I’ll be posting mine.

Here are a few of my favs from previous Nordstrom fitting room frenzy.

Here are a few of my favorites.

Cold Shoulder Black Dress | Gold Pendant

OMG is this not the cutest dress ever!!?  Love it and so flattering.  Perfect for a summer wedding or date night.








A-line shift dresses

The perfect summer dress.  Loads of patterns to choose, runs large so size down.








V-neck shift dress 

These dresses are so versatile.  They would be great on the weekend for BBQ’s, parties, running errands, with sandals.

I would also wear for work, church, and dress it up at night with heels.








Gingham Fit and Flare

Gingham is everywhere this summer and I think the print is timeless.  This dress is double duty.  Great work work with heels like I have on but then weekend ready with sandals or fashion sneakers.








I hope you got a few ideas of the fun summer dresses that are available for under $100.  Let me know which one’s you like best.  XOXO  Sarah


Hey girls.

If you’re a working mom like myself, then finding quality time-savers are worth every penny.  A common perception, is personal shoppers are a pricey luxury.  However, the girl I use at Nordstrom- West County Center is outstanding, and free!  She’s up with all current trends, and always takes into account your budget.

Here’s her contact info if you want to make an appointment:

Amber Kemp / Cell: (314) 452-6589 / E-mail:  amber.r.kemp@nordstrom.com

When you contact her, tell her what types of outfits you’re looking for, your budget, size, preferred colors and brands.  E-mailing her some links with examples are always helpful.

This Fitting Room Frenzy was focused on finding summer dresses for work, that were cool while enduring the blazing St. Louis heat.  Tell me your favorites.

Embroidered Neck Sheath Dress (also available in pink)  This dress is form-fitted, but still breathes well.  Perfect for work.








Athena Fit & Flare Dress

Turquoise is my favorite color to wear, and everyone should consider adding that color to their wardrobe.  This dress is soft and has some fun details with a raiser-back cut.








Pink Fit and Flare

This dress screams summer fun, and it even has pockets!  Even though I wouldn’t technically wear this for work, it’s great pick if attending a summer BBQ, brunch with girlfriends, or a day at the wineries.








Gingham Fit and Flare

Gingham is a very popular pattern this summer, and this particular print is timeless.  This dress serves double duty, because with heels it’s makes a great statement at work, or you can dress it down on the weekend with sandals or fashion sneakers.  This dress really has you covered for any outdoor event.








Green Tahari dress (This dress is not online but call Amber @Nordstrom if you’re interested.)

I’d wear this for work. It would also be fun if your headed to a summer wedding or a night out dancing.   It features some great details with the tie at the waist and its so light and comfortable.








Pointe Fit and Flare Dress

Classic is the word for this selection.  Rotate it into your wardrobe to wear at work or even church on the weekend.  You could also throw on some sandals and a white denim jacket for a more casual look.








Palm Fit and Flare

You don’t have to be in a tropic location to wear palms.  This is a fun and current-patterned v-neck with a waist that ties.  Wear it to work, and leave it on for a dinner out with the family.






What dresses do you like?  I hope you found this fitting room frenzy helpful.  Next time I’ll post dresses under $100.  Stay tuned.  XOXO
