BB's Weekly Link Round-Up: The Best of What's Left from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom Anniversary picks to scoop up before the sale ends.
1. Bow Flats // 2. MAC Lip Kit // 3. Baby Girl Bow (I ordered the pink for my 3-week-old niece!) // 4. Tory Burch Riding Boots // 5. Circle Cardigan // 6. Stripe Leather Tote // 7. Anorak // 8. Backpack // 9. Cashmere Poncho

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends August 6th, then prices jump back up. Here's what to get before it's too late.

But first, some weekly links worth reading:

Feast your eyes on these new-for-fall Merona at Target brocade mules! So good.

Thanks to a tip from alert reader Julianne A., we learned that J.O.A. (a brand you can find at Bloomie's ) has a new line at Target called J by J.O.A. How fab is this gingham top? Julianne recommends sizing up.

Brush up on your knowledge of Erdem with these runway pics before their H&M collab drops this fall.

College Fashion puts together 3 summer date outfits under $100.

Sydne Style is loving embroidered shirts for summer to fall dressing.

Corporette talks about which beauty treatments give you the most bang for your buck.

In case you were wondering, SHEfinds tells us what thighbrows are all about.

Do you follow us on Pinterest? Mark my word, I will be copying this gray and blush casual look for fall.

And oh hey, follow us on Instagram, won't you? Shared this lemon print dress this week - now 60% off! And my photo made the homepage - woohoo!

Now, some quick notes on my Nordstrom sale picks! Don't let the title of this post turn you off - these aren't the leftovers. These are gems that for whatever reason are still in stock - and the prices will go way up August 7th, so now's your chance to get them at a discount!

I think the Madewell tote, for example, is still priced a little high and that's why it didn't sell out. But it's a classic you'll love and carry for years!

The Tory boots probably didn't sell out for the same reason - still pricey but a timeless style investment.

Meanwhile, this bow did sell out in some colors but many more are available. These are the stuff of photoshoot baby dreams!

That's it for now. Have a wonderful weekend! xxBB

I have tried to shop at Nordstrom, but they never have pants or skirts that are long enough for me. I asked them why they mainly carry Petites, being that this is Texas and we have a LOT of tall women here. I just got a shrug. Apparently they are trying for the Neiman's demographic of short size 8s and under.

Sounds like you had a less than stellar experience - so sorry to hear that. I've only bought jeans at Nordstrom and I've found long lengths (I'm 5'8")...have you heard of the blog The Miller Affect? The author is 5'11", lives in Dallas, and shops at Nordstrom A LOT. Maybe you'll find some pointers there? Good luck! xxBB
