The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today and here’s what’s on my wish list:

bebe Mixed Media Trench Coat, $119 (after sale: $198)
When I received the Anniversary Sale catalog a few weeks back and spied this trench, it was love at first sight. The faux-leather sleeves are FIERCE and I can’t resist an asymmetrical zipper, so if this ends up fitting (sadly, it doesn’t come in Petite sizes), I’m bringing this bad girl home.

DV by Dolce Vita ‘Folly’ Bootie, $66.90 (after sale: $99.95)
Again…another love-at-first-glance situation (it was also in the catalog). Give me a haircalf bootie in an animal print with an exposed zipper and I’m a happy gal. I don’t really need this boot, but I want it. Truly, madly, deeply.

Hue Denim Leggings, $25.90 (after sale: $39)
Come fall and winter, I live in leggings – and Hue makes some of the highest quality, affordable and fashion forward styles. I already own two pairs of these leggings and I love them (my mom and sister own pairs too). What makes them a must-have is how they suck you in and make your legs and butt look firm and toned. It’s like a denim legging pair of Spanx. Speaking of Spanx…

Spanx, $9.90-49.90 (after sale $14-76)
Spanx are expensive, but totally necessary and worth it. But to save money, I do the bulk of my Spanx shopping at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale every year. If you buy one thing in this sale, make it a Spanx shaper – it’ll make every garment you already own look ten times more fabulous on you. That Sara Blakely is a genius!

Deborah Lippmann ‘Let’s Go Crazy’ Glitter Nail Color (Nordstrom Exclusive), $18
Deborah Lippmann pays homage to Prince with a fun and glittery purple polish. Yes, please!

Halogen Seamed Pencil Skirt, $45.90 (after sale: $69)
This stretch-ponte skirt is perfect for work and play. It’s available in regular and petite sizes (yay!) and comes in 11 colors. I love this color blocked one, though because the black bands on the sides are so slimming.

What’s on your wish list or already in your virtual cart? Whatever it is, be sure to act fast…items are selling out fast. Sale ends August 6, 2012.
