Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Shop Shoes Under $100

All my friends and family know I am a bit of a shoe fiend. Nothing on the scale of Imelda Marcos, but I have a small collection that I am pretty proud of. Every July/August when the Nordstrom Anniversary sale comes around I flip feverishly through the catalog, making notes on which pairs to add to my collection. While Nordstrom does have some effing awesome deals in all the departments it's the shoes that I will always go for. This year it was hard to pick my favorites, there were just so many pretty pairs, but I whittled it down to a few favorite picks. In reality I only have a budget to only buy one. I'm not sure what the lucky pair will be yet, but feel free to leave a comment on which shoes should be added to the ever growing collection. Have you checked out any of Nordstrom's sales in the past? Had any amazing shopping finds there? What are your picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
BP 'Runway' Boot, $89.90, After Sale $129.95
DV by Dolce Vita 'Folly' Bootie, $66.90, After Sale 99.95
Born 'Molly' Flat, $64.90, After Sale $94.95

Vince Camuto 'Vionet' Pump, $79.90, After Sale $128.95
Me Too 'Pria' Pump, $64.90, After Sale $98.95
P.S. For all you gals with small shoe sizes I'm talking 6 and under, Nordstrom has a great selection of smaller sizes in the sale too. Don't despair I'm sure you will find something in this sale, but remember to shop early.

Shop My Closet with Threadflip

My closet is like a mood ring ever changing with my moods.  Instead of emotional moods though my closet is tied to my style moods.  Not to say that emotions don't have anything to do with what I buy to put into my closet or what I choose to remove from my closet.  For the most I wear everything in my closet to death, rags and ruined. There is a few pieces in my closet that were perhaps mistakes, oh well live and learn to shop better.  I have decided that it's time to part with those pristine pieces ignored on hangers, or hidden in drawers.  My loss in this instance can be your gain though.  I am selling these unique finds online, on a new fashion selling site called Threadflip.  I have never had much luck with ebay or etsy for my vintage items, they are just too big too impersonal.  Threadflip is a new and different way to sell those gently used gems from your closet.  The listing is free and they even send you a box and label when your item sells.  I just joined and I am really excited to share some of my closet with all of you.

My current offerings on Threadflip. I am going to continue to add more so please follow me on Threadflip or like J. Rose Style on Facebook for updates.
