Nordstrom Anniversary Sale & Friendship Friday Link-up #3

Have you been hearing choirs of angels singing this week? If not, listen harder – the legendary Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started yesterday with early access for credit card holders!#nsale, Nordstrom, anniversary sale

So, why is this sale such a big deal?  Well, it’s because Nordstrom releases a bunch of brand new fall clothes (not yet in stores or online) at limited time fabulous sale prices!  Some of these discounts are HUGE and merchandise includes both trend items and staples.

The best way to shop the sale is with early access.  In fact, last year early access did so well that many of the more popular items sold out prior to the sale opening to the public.  While I hear from the Nordstrom “Powers That Be” that they’re better prepared for this year’s onslaught, why leave it to chance?

How I Discovered (or Became Obsessed with) Kendra Scott

I’m delighted to introduce my dear friend, Christina Nedelec as a guest poster today. Chrisy is my go-to girl when it comes to anything about Kendra Scott jewelry.  She currently serves as an administrator for the 16,000+ member Kendra Scott Chat & Buy/Sell/Trade Facebook group.  Today she will share a little on the background of Kendra Scott as well as how her interest in this jewelry brand developed.


Kendra Scott designed her first collection of jewelry in 2002.  With a flair for entrepreneurship and an infectious energy, she has grown that first collection to the billion dollar fashion brand it is today.   Her jewelry is known for quality materials and innovative use of color and gemstones, winning over both celebrities and loyal consumers.

This loving mom believes the truest form of success is giving back in a meaningful way.  Hence the company’s three core values: Family, Fashion and Philanthropy which have resulted in a brand that authentically values giving back and making a positive difference in the community. (NOTE: This information is per the Kendra Scott website on June 5, 2017).

A highlight of the line is the Kendra Scott “Color Bar”, where YOU can create and design your own jewelry! You get to pick out your hardware and stones, and create unique, one-of-a-kind pieces.  It’s SO fun! I highly recommend doing it in store, so you can pick out your own stones.  Since they are a natural medium, stones vary greatly in color and veining. If you design your piece in store, you get to take it home with you during the same visit! It only takes a few minutes for them to set your stones.
