    I also felt the same browsing around yesterday. Same stuff, same colors but the few items that I wish were back from previous years were not. I'm not a cardholder so will have to wait until next week to shop.

    Pretty disappointed in this yearís offerings and a few things were already out of stock, but this is what I ordered:

    Vince Camuto Ponte pants in black, grey, and port (the port colored ones were only available in plus sizes but I got a 14W and they maybe too big)
    Vince Camuto black leggings
    JCrew Striped Sweater
    Halogen blouse in black, and red/blue floral print
    Grey/White check Vans for DD1 for her school shoes
    Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk lipstick set.

    What did everyone end up keeping? I think I've got a shirt still coming, but everything else has arrived and been tried on. Successes were:

    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/paulas-...-value/5264153
    I've never used this bought it on a whim (it's close to 50% off on the sale) and meant to do the gift with purchase but forgot to put something else in my cart, lol. When it came I almost returned it but then read some online reviews and decided to give it a try. I've only been using it for a couple days but holy smokes my skin feels completely different and it's really helping with this problem area by my nose where i had some sort of blockage/cyst pushing up from under the skin, it's going away. Keeping!


    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/kut-fro...petite/5259290 - these were really flattering, and will be great for work. There were a tad long though, not sure I can wear boots as tall as I'll need to for the current length so I may have to get them hemmed, which is unusual for me for petite jeans. I may do that thing I've seen recommended where you buy 2 pairs and get them hemmed to different lengths.

    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/vince-c...ck-top/5266233 - I got this in the magenta/plum, it's a great color for me that doesn't usually come around except in winter sweaters, etc. wore it to work yesterday. With the jeans I'm feeling much better prepared for some fall work events. Funny story - when I dropped DD at summer camp yesterday this other girl I don't know yelled "I'm a unicorn" and tried to jump on me. I'm sure she was inspired by the purple shirt

    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/vince-c...blouse/5266236 - will probably keep but I ordered a similar tshirt, waiting for that to arrive to compare.

    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/chantel...ed-bra/3035131 - Very pretty - I will probably keep this but may decide to return for just a basic tshirt bra

    Returning:
    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/caslon-...petite/4543188 - disappointed in this - loved the color but it didn't feel like it was good quality. Felt like something I'd buy at kolhs
    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/halogen...petite/5201552 - another not flattering on me, neckline didn't hang flat, like it was pulling but I would have been swimming in a larger size.
    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/kut-fro...petite/5259291 - more distressed then I realized from the photo I have better skinnies
    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/niczoe-...petite/5265617 - complete disaster with my larger chest

    I don't have a nordstrom card, so I just ordered and didn't receive any items yet. I have been concentrating on spiffing up my work wardrobe.

    The piece I'm most excited about it this one: https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/vince-m...weater/5206464 - Olive green is my color and turtlenecks are my thing. I think I can wear it with a pencil skirt/tights/boots on a more casual work day and wear it with jeans on the weekend.

    I ordered these Aquatalia boots, but worried because the reviews say that they are narrow in the toe (I have a narrow heel but not narrow forefoot). https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/aquatal...-women/5264983

    I got these Eileen fisher pumps in gold. I have to try them on to see if I can get through a work day in them, but they have been getting good reviews on various blogs. https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/eileen-...-women/5247404

    I got these Born boots in tan https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/born-uc...e-calf/5243853 and these Blondos in black https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/blondo-...-women/5281221 to wear with skirts and tights to work.

    My potential big splurge is this Boss suit dress and matching jacket. It will have to fit perfectly, but I LOVE that color. https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/boss-di...petite/5269767

    This Theory dress is the kind of thing I wear a ton in the winter, with a turtleneck, blazer, tights and boots. https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/theory-...-dress/5273926

    I also ordered these Vince booties cause I thought they would look good with black tights. I won't keep both these and the Aquatalias though, and the Aquatalias are waterproof. https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/vince-h...-women/5264835

    I'm a bit on the fence about the Tory Burch Everly tote, in black or light umber. I do need a new work bag. That one is not exciting or anything but looks practical and polished. Thoughts? https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/tory-bu...=light%20umber

    I think it's stylish and will spiff up a lot of outfits. I like the black.

    I found it a bit disappointing this year.

    I ordered these for the wet winter, hoping they are comfy. I love animal print shoes.

    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/aquatal...-women/5312344

    These. Weíll see. When this style doesnít come in my size (10.5) itís hit or miss.

    https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/vince-h...-women/5264836

    A few zebra things. I think I miss Africa (just got back from safari and I love zebras)

    This in black and ivory

    I also got another barefoot dreams cardi. I wear these and uggs in the ice rink all winter and DS1 is already practicing now.

    I got my stuff on Friday! I was soo surprised because they estimated two weeks for shipping!

    I am keeping the following:
    Vince Camuto grey ponte pants (wearing them today)
    Vince Camuto black leggings
    J Crew striped sweater
    Charlotte Tilbury lipstick set: this is okay, but the Pillowtalk color is very nude looking on me vs. the mauve pink ylbb color it is suppose to be on everyone. The gloss is nice feeling, and the lipliner is nice as well, but I doubt I would pay full price for the lipliner, and I probably wonít repurchase the lipstick.

    Not sure about:
    Vince Camuto black ponte pants (these fit differently than the grey ones and the prior pair of black ones I have....they feel looser and longer and I am not sure I want to go through the hassle of having them altered)

    Returning:
    Vince Camuto port ponte pants: these donít have a regular waist in the back, they have a black stretchy 2Ē panel, which imho doesnít look right and I couldnít tuck a blouse or a t shirt into them. Loved the color though and wouldíve kept them had they been the same as the non plus size ponte pants.

    Halogen blouses: the arms were too short and therefore too tight in the arms. The rest of the top dimensions fit fine, but the arms were like wearing petite sizes. Really bummed because I loved the colors of the red/navy one.

    One pair of Vans sneakers that were too small for DD1.

    I bought one cardigan. That was it. I usually buy a TON. For myself and DS and a few things for DD. DS is too big for boys and I can do better in small men’s stuff at TJ Maxx/Marshall’s/Ross. I feel the same for myself. Nothing is that fabulous that I can’t find something similar somewhere cheaper. I usually buy a bunch of stuff and then return it anyway! All the bloggers were showing the same stuff too. It was all very underwhelming IMO.
