Nordstrom’s Half Yearly Sale – Shoes

It’s that time again! Nordstrom has its half-yearly sale and everyone’s favorite department store is guaranteed to be a mad house. Thank goodness for online shopping!

The first thing I usually shop for during the sale are shoes, of course. Big surprise. Now is the best time to snap up those mules you were eyeing and the designer sandals you just could not get yourself to buy for full price.

I did the legwork for you and linked all the best deals below, so you don’t have to.

Happy Shopping!

Last Minute Holiday Gift Guides

Think it is too late to do your Holiday shopping online and you will have to face the crowded malls to avoid being empty-handed on Christmas? Think again!

If you are a procrastinator like me, I have great news! I have compiled two gift guides with items that are guaranteed to arrive before Christmas.

A little trick to save you even more time is to enter the shipping address of the lucky ones who will receive your gift. A lot of items already come beautifully packaged, such as Stella & Dot, or companies offer wrapping as an add-on to your order.

Wishing you Happy Holidays and successful last-minute shopping!

Small Business Saturday

With Black Friday Sales galore I wanted to showcase a different approach to holiday shopping this year – Small Business Saturday!

Instead of shopping exclusively at big national stores, I encourage you to explore the local small shops this holiday season. Most have great deals going on right now and the one on one service you will receive is not comparable to any of the mass stores. But furthermore, shopping locally and small makes an important impact on our community and strengthens our “village”.

I know everybody has one or two friends who are business owners. How about making their Christmas a little brighter by getting that awesome blanket scarf from them, instead of that nationally known department store? It is just as convenient because almost all small businesses have online shops now.

Here are a few of my favorite small businesses selected for you!

Betty Be Good offers hand picked, boutique styles for the frugal fashionista. Everything in the curated collection is under $60 excluding outerwear, so you can find a whole new wardrobe without breaking the bank! The boutique is located at Birch Bay Square, which is 15 minutes north of Bellingham.

Sierra’s Smokey Peplum Moto

It is always difficult to find a great leather jacket, but this one is perfection. I absolutely love the stitch detail, and figure flattering peplum waist. And the price makes it a no-brainer.

Brooklyn’s Blanket Scarf

I can’t wait to snuggle up with this warm scarf, which is one of the hottest trends of the season.

Randi’s Reindeer Pullover Top

How cute is this top?! Perfect for all holiday festivities ahead of us.

Maple + Moss Boutique is a women’s retailer located in Historic Downtown Snohomish, catering to the adventurous, confident and stylish woman. They also have great accessories and gift items worth checking out. I love their boho casual style and cute mugs!

Viva La Brunch Tee

I can just see myself wearing this top to Sunday brunch with some cute boots and a cardi!

Anchor for my soul Mug

Everybody needs and “anchor for the soul”, especially if it contains coffee.

Stella and Dot is a San Francisco based social selling company that creates flexible entrepreneurial opportunities for women. Being a Stella & Dot stylist myself, I can say from first-hand experience that Stella & Dot’s CEO, Jessica Herrin, puts a huge emphasis on empowering women. She created an amazing community of women by providing flexible entrepreneurship. The custom designed accessories are gorgeous and of highest quality that you would only find in fine jewelry. I also love the fact that Stella& Dot is committed to social responsibility and product safety.  And of course, the gorgeous jewelry speaks for itself!

Here is a heads up: We have a huge sale going on right now with lots of items 60% off! This sale happens only once a year and the prices will go back  to regular prices Monday morning!

Azure Tassel Necklace

Semi precious lapis beads in cool colors combined with pops of citron for a lengthy, effortless look. Detachable tassel allows to take your look from beach boho to casual chic.

Pauline Ring {sold out, but check out more rings here}

Five semi-precious hand-set lapis stones round out this intricately designed ring with gold plating. This ring is on repeat because of the bold statement it makes and, believe it or not, the comfortable wear.

Veda Split Ring {click on the sale tab to find the ring}

This is a fun and flirty double-detail cocktail ring. One size fits all because it is adjustable.

Here are two more small businesses that I mentioned in my previous posts. Make sure to check them out!

Something Silver always has great deals on jewelry and has 3 amazing shops to visit in the Pacific Northwest. Here is some shopping inspiration for you.

Emerald Cuff is a Seattle based online shop with beautiful clothing and accessories. Here is one of the collections, Kensington, styled by me.

 

Please, consider your local women friends in business to shop with and make a difference this Holiday season.

Happy Small Business Shopping, friends!

xoxo,

 

Olga

Something Silver

As I announced in my previous post, I was invited to the fabulous Style Up event at Pacific Place last week and teamed up with local jewelry store, Something Silver. And what a fantastic event it was!

Playing with all the gorgeous jewelry, I truly felt like a kid in the candy store. I just wanted to try all the gems and sparkle on at once!

Something Silver has a huge selection of jewelry that matches literally every style, from trendy fashion jewelry to timeless and refined designer pieces.  Since I love supporting local businesses, it feels great to shop at Something Silver knowing that it was founded right here in the Pacific Northwest. Everybody at the Pacific Place location was so sweet and helpful, especially the store manager, Lori, who I can’t thank enough for hosting me.

I had the chance to style a few items, which you can see in the pictures above. Also, if you hurry, you can still see my picks displayed at the Pacific Place store.

And here are the exciting news:  Something Silver is offering a 15% discount exclusively to my readers!

The discount code is BLISS for online checkout. For in store purchases, make sure to show the sales person this blog post on your phone. Easy peasy.

This exclusive discount is valid through the 31st of October and is on regular priced merchandise only, online and in store.

To give you some ideas, here are some of my picks that I am crazy about:

Kitsch Pearl & Crystal Ear Cuff

Ear cuffs are still a hot trend this season, and this one is extra glamorous.

Silver Prong Set CZ & Pearl Double Sided Studs

Pearl studs are so classic and timeless. The only thing making them better is to combine them with zirconium studs at a terrific price point.

 

Graduated White Pearl & Sterling Silver Necklace

I fell in love with this gorgeous necklace! I can see myself layer it with other silver necklaces, or wear it on its own as a daily basic. So versatile and absolutely beautiful.

 

Sterling Silver & CZ Bar Cuff

A great cuff that can be layered in an arm party or worn on its own. Just the right amount of sparkle.

 

Tiny Sterling Silver V Stacking Ring

I love knuckle rings and this one actually fits because it comes in sizes 3-7! Also in a gold filled option. I want to wear them on every finger, they’re so cute!

I hope all of you can take advantage of this great offer and find a piece or two that brings some sparkle to your style.

xoxo,

Olga
