Adventures of Linda and Kristi

Kristi Pinkham has been my partner in crime during this whole Fashion Week craziness and boy have we had fun. Kristi has this knack of making everything special. I mean, last week she wore a gold vintage Halston skirt. Okay? I have yet to find it’s equal. She doesn’t save special things for special occasions. She just goes for it. And I love this about her. Her pinterest account is equally reflective. You must see it.

Here are just a few of our photos.

Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale Preview

Nordstrom invited me (and a few other bloggers) to  preview their Anniversary sale this past Wednesday and blog about my experience. It was so fun! Maybe a little too much fun. I’m going to blame that on my friend Carol (she works at Nordstrom and has amazing style!). You’ll see her below.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Before we get started, let me share few fun facts about Nordstrom:

1: Nordstrom’s biggest sale of the year—the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale—is held each July. This event has become legendary among Nordstrom customers nationwide who enjoy outstanding savings on the most exciting new fall merchandise before the season starts.
2: The Anniversary sale is going on now through the 18th for Cardholders only (and if you’re not a cardholder, you can become one if you want early access!) and is open to the public from July 19 – August 4!
3: The Anniversary sale is NOT a clearance sale. It’s a sale for the upcoming season—Fall! So you can get a head start on what’s new!
4: The average price point in the Savvy department (which you know is my favorite—see here and here) is only $52!
5: Nordstrom has some of the best customer service I’ve ever seen.

Onto the details of the night!

First we all met and chatted at a happy hour in the legendary Nordstrom Bistro. Seriously, if you haven’t been there, you should go. And get the Tomato Bisque. I got to meet a few other STL bloggers and I to my surprise, one of my new favorite bloggers, Jacqueline was there! So great to meet them all. Nordstrom served us flat bread and some yummy desserts and gift bags. Oh the gift bags.

Carol and Me Then, we took a guided tour through the “tents” (early access to the sales) where I got side tracked by so many pretty things. As we all know, purses seem to be my weakness. This one Carol is holding is under $65!

Stop it Carol. Leave some cute for the rest of us!!

Such an amazing night! Head on over to your local Nordstrom (at West County and the Galleria if you’re in StL) or check out the selection online and get ready for Fall—or at least grab some transitional pieces! :)

And now, I must begin saving up for a pair of Zella leggings (to go with this awesome Zella jacket Bobby just bought me! EEK!!), a new pair of Nikes, this leather wrap skirt (which Carol convinced me would spice up my wardrobe!),  and the awesomest freaking pair of boots—mark my words, they WILL be mine.

Me and My Girls

Sunday after church, I ran into a few of my girls outside in front of the builiding and had a quick, fun, little chat with them. And since they both have such great style, Bob snapped a few pics of us chatting and smiling and the usual shoe pose.

My friend Kristi (the red head), is the girl whose wedding has been pinned all over the place and (you know, they tied the knot!) she has just started a little some’in some’in of her own. Blog, photoshoot styling, personal styling, interior decorating, etc. She’s stinkin’ amazing and you should go pay her a visit just for fun. You can find her at
