Wearing red seems a little cliche right now, but I’m loving this new to me shade of red. This shirt dress also comes in a maxi long version but I opted for a shorter version to pair them with tall boots. Have you tried a shirt dress? They’re incredibly flattering for many different body types.

Every year, I ask Reid to give me a wishlist of items that he wants for Christmas. He doesn’t want much, but I can usually twist his arm. like many of you, I need a break from dinner duty, so I decided he needed the #2 Blackstone grill. I ordered it asap. I can’t wait to take the night off of dinner duty. YAY! Do you have a man on your list?

NSALE last call

by Shalice Noel

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends Sunday!

I have a confession to make, I changed my mind about this Levi’s denim jacket. It is in fact, the perfect wash and the denim is so good. I bought it last week and awaiting its arrival. You may remember on my previous post about the NSALE, I said to not buy this denim jacket since the discounted price is similar to the retail price at the Levi’s store. HOWEVER, the wash is so good that it is worth the $85 price tag is still a steal. Do you agree?

I’m also loving these Lunya silk pj’s and Cle de peau skin set that’s an obvious score with so many high end pieces.

What’s on your list?

I had a blast shopping the NSALE this week. Lots of good deals and great find. I’m lazy when it comes to getting into the gym, so any motivation to workout, I’ll take it. I found some cute bike shorts, tank and cardigan to hit the gym in style.Just the motivation I needed!

I found Reid some things too, stay tuned for the men’s edit blog post.

How cute is this Zella jacket?

Which is your favorite look?

All cardholders can shop today! Hurry, sell out risk is high. I put my order through today and already saw some items I wanted sold out.

Love these high waist flares!

MIA wide leg jeans // Buckle sandals // Straight leg jeans // Sunglasses // Belt // Modal Tee // Toiletry Bag // Zella Jacket // Levi Nike Shoes // Vest // Reiss camel coat // Open Edit Blazer // Blazer dress in small (LOVE THIS)

I didn’t find a ton of bags or accessories. I am mainly obsessed with the Kurt Geiger belt bag!

Home and Luggage

Note: Beis has 360 turning wheels! I love a good wooden cutting board (no pfas from the plastic ones)


Loving the crewneck tees, Faherty hoodie and AG jeans that fit like a glove.


Levi wants Jordan’s for his birthday, so I’m hoping he will like these Nike Court?


I really want these Barefoot Dreams socks now!


So many fun sneakers on the NSALE, get extra pairs as Christmas presents!

If you buy one pair of heels . . . THIS PAIR



What I don’t think is worth it in the NSALE

Every year when I shop the NSALE, I tell people that there is a strategy to the sale. Don’t just buy something because it is on sale. Think investment buys and wardrobe builders. The below however, didn’t seem worth it. Do you agree?

Barefoot dreams cardigan

It’s there every year in the same driftwood color, I’m over it. And at this point, you should already have one.

The Versace watch is over the top, and not a classic choice IMO.

the Levi’s denim jacket. It’s the same price as in store, so if you need one, get it but don’t stress because it’s not much of a discount.

MOLLY walnut trouser jeans

HOLLY high waist flares

ROSIE coated denim fits tts.

The MIA shown above. fit tts.

The Nordstrom sale is a great time to invest in fall pieces at discount. This year, I’m consentrating on investment buys. No tees or tanks, but mainly items like elevated boots and denim at discount. I hope to be YOUR guide for the Nordstrom sale. Lmk what you’re looking for! Or you can email, mgmt@shalicenoel.com.

It is no secret that I am sucker for good denim and get butterflies in my stomach when I arrive at the Nordstrom sale and get to comb through all the denim selection. This year supply is no exception. So many great brands and fits to choose from. Here are some of my highlights from the sale. Don’t forget to add these to your wishlist! These will sell out quickly!
