secrets of a nordstrom rack shopper


nordstrom rack has always been a fave of me that i've frequented for anything from the most casual outfit to a special occasion dress to even some of our baby gear faves. it's a huge win when you can get the same brands that nordstrom sells for WAY less than they were originally, right?!

a brand new nordstrom rack just opened recently near me, in laguna niguel and it's pretty amazing! the one in san diego is awesome too, if you're ever down this way and looking for some shopping in between beaching. but for those times that i just need to find something late at night when my two babies are in bed, i like to cruise the merch on nordstrom rack online.

these are some of my latest finds! wildfox couture sunnies – i know these are a little “out there,” but they were a great deal so it was fun to get some statement sunnies without splurging too hard.


also, i've been in love with the brand joie ever since i stumbled upon the most luxurious pair of sweatpants ever a few years back at nordstrom rack in sugarhouse (utah). you better believe i wore those sweatpants for years, till they had holes in both butt pockets before i finally had a sweatpant funeral for them and threw them away.

everything joie i've ever tried on just fits beautifully and is the definition of flattering perfection. but it's pretty expensive, so that's a brand i search a lot on nordstrom rack to see what they have in stock, and i was thrilled when i found this silk joie top!


dolce vita is another brand i love searching because their shoes are usually right on trend, pretty affordable, and always fit well! i'm pretty happy with this new pair of white & gold flat sandals!


lastly, deux lux is another brand i love searching because their bags are super well made and the cutest! i often see them in anthropologie (full price) so it's always a treat to find them at nordstrom rack online. i was pretty tempted to get the weekender version of this bag, even though i totally don't need a weekender! they always have the cutest prints inside their bags.


so next time you need a good fashion fix but you can't make it to your nearest nordstrom rack, search some of my fave brands in their online store … you might just get lucky!
