Early Access: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Selections

Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale kicked off last week, and we won’t even blame you if you’re sick of hearing about it already! In an effort to hold your interest (and hopefully be helpful!), we’ll keep this short, sweet, and to the point. Below, find a roundup of picks from the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale [Early Access: July 13-20. Public Access: July 21 – August 6].



I mean, how fun is this Split Sleeve Tee? The best part — it’s only $28!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t stop collecting candles. Especially when they are divine-smelling Diptyque Candles (they never go on sale… so seize the opportunity!)

Treat yourself to Tory Burch boots, pumps or sandals (while they last!)


Ok, so the CALPAK Marble Luggage isn’t part of the Anniversary Sale (unfortunately), but they are just too fun, I couldn’t resist including them in the marble roundup. I did go a bit crazy on the DKNY Marble Bath Accessories though. Can’t wait until they arrive and everything is matching and streamlined.

That’s it! If you’re wondering what authority I have to report on the most anticipated sale of the season, the answer is… I’m really no expert. Just practical person who loves a highly anticipated sale.

P.S. Pajamas! I forgot the PJs! These Moonlight Pajamas by Nordstrom Lingerie are insanely comfortable. They come in your choice of 5 colors and there’s a short version, too.

Thanks for reading! Let us know what else you find in the comments below or on Instagram, @thejcrgirls.

Last Minute Gift Guide: For the Beauty Lover

Nothing puts me in the holiday spirit quite like the promise of a colorful new eye shadow palette for my collection. It’s the one time of the year I don’t have to justify my want of designer mascara or sparkly caviar nail pearls because that’s the beauty (see what I did there?) of gift-giving season.

So I say away with you practicality! Pop open a can of Champers and treat yourself (and the ladies in your life) to something pretty, like one of these gems below:
1.. Because you can never have too many eye shadow palettes.
2.. This cult mascara stuffs stockings and changes lives.
3.. Save the calories for Santa and smell like an iced gingerbread cookie instead.
4. You want the men in your life to look good too.
5. Ultra-rich hand cream ornaments for your tree? Yes please!
6. Lip glosses in every shade for holiday celebrations and the year ahead!
7. Erase a year of skincare sins with this hypoallergenic Re-Everything Treatment Toner.
8. Ring in the new year looking looking fierce with this edgy 24/7 Eyeliner Collection.
9. Then glow all winter with this hydrating skincare set.
10. Countdown to Christmas with this advent calendar of festive nail polishes and sparkly goodies.

Current Obsession: Catbird

I’m going to be honest here, this is actually a “by association” obsession. My roommate Britt loves Catbird (located in Williamsburg in BK) and I love everything she gets there SO… I won’t allow myself to visit the store. But I will make a trip up there soon on a day my self control is at a good level (I’m doing some conditioning for this by browsing the website regularly).

If you’ve caught midi-ring fever (it’s a thing) then this is the place to stock up. The rings really are so simple, but, if you are like me and do things like wear a midi-ring around your house to get comfortable with it, then simple is perfect. It’s also nice because then you can wear a lot of them and not give off a Liberace vibe (creepy, gaudy, etc. for those of you who don’t want to Google):

You can also look really trendy whilst helping a child blow his nose:

Sorry I just had to.

Okay so…not only do they have amazing jewelry:

They also have beauty and home products, and cute cards. Please see below for the only greeting card you will ever need. I mean, this could really work for any occasion:

You're Magical card

If you ever find yourself in Williamsburg, definitely make it a point to stop into Catbird (and take me with you!). If you don’t live in New York, or if you’re just not in the mood to bob and weave through groups of dirty hipsters, check out their website here.

PS – Check out some more of our favorite midi-rings that you can mix in with the ones you are sure to purchase from Catbird:
