Quick story time. I haven’t been sleeping well and have been cleaning excessively. Clearly something was bothering me and I couldn’t make sense of it. The #Nordstrom Sale is coming up (Aug 19 – Aug 30) and it took me a few days, but I’ve figured it out. Shopping is an activity my sister and I did together – iced coffee and the mall. We would get excited about the #NSale. I realized the last time I posted about the NSale on this blog was in 2017 when she was still around. She helped me pick out the clothes and I haven’t posted about it since.
I miss my stylish, fashion loving sister. I miss the time we spent together combing through the NSale and grumbling about never shopping with her again because she makes me spend too much money. I’m doing the work and facing all the nuances of grief that randomly pop up and destroy my peace. Cardholders get early access to the sale so I’ve already dropped a ridiculous amount of money on the preview and I know I’ll be spending some more.
I’ve picked out all my favorites in every category and linked them for you below. All are affiliate links and the blog may earn a small commission at no additional cost to you. It’s a monster post and it brought me a lot of joy but it was also emotionally exhausting. Happy shopping and if you buy something, take a picture & tag me on Instagram – it would make my heart so happy.

Last year, I had a great time at Cadillac’s Road to Table event. This year I attended Road to Runway as a guest of Cadillac and experienced the final night of Fashion X Dallas – a spectacular night of runway shows featuring local DFW designers as well as emerging designers from all over the world. I grabbed my fashion-obsessed sister as my plus one and we headed out. On the way to Fashion Industry Gallery, I test drove the new Cadillac CT6. I don’t know how they managed to fit 34 speakers into that car but the surround sound system was awesome. The rear camera mirror took some time to get used to but my favorite interior feature was the wireless phone charger. I’m always losing chargers. Or getting them all tangled up or not plugging it in properly!
As soon as we walked in we were handed a glass of Prosecco courtesy of Chloe Wine and browsed through some pop-up shops. We ended up spending most of our time in the VIP Lounge before the show started. A couple of drinks and Snaps later I realized that my phone is on 1% battery. Blogger fail! I told you I have issues plugging in the car phone charger all the way! So I jacked my sister’s phone and took over her Snapchat for the rest of the night. The show was such a gorgeous eye-catching display of creativity by every designer. I’m always in awe in the face of pure talent, I loved every minute of it.
We were chauffeured by Cadillac to the afterparty at Bungalow Beach Club. What followed was what usually goes down when I’m with my sister; I forgot that I’m a thirty-something mom and reverted back to my early twenties and partied my ass off. My body did not forgive me the next morning because I was in pain! Despite the old lady hangover, I was grateful to a be a part of yet another great event sponsored by Cadillac.
For my outfit, I paired a sequined black tank top and a studded pencil skirt with a terry moto jacket. Affiliate links posted below. View my disclosure policy here.
