The debit card is simply connected to your bank account so it is not at all a credit card, but functions similarly in regards to card holder benefits.

NORDSTROM -Shop Anniversary Sale Beauty Exclusives chosen by Allure
Hunter Short Boot $175 for $109.90 #NSale

Now that I no longer live in the bitter cold northeast (and probably never will again), I have to retire my Ugg boots and switch to something like these Hunter boots to battle the humid, wet summers and cold, slushy winters. The sale price applies to the black and red styles.

diptyque candle set $75 value for $55These are some of the priciest candles I’ve ever tried (and I’ve only tried one), but they’re certainly pretty to look at and very aesthetically pleasing to store Q-Tips, cotton balls or makeup brushes/lip products once the candle burns out. This collection features all of the top favorites I’ve seen in one set of minis.
Bobbi Brown Cheek Set $92 value for $50

I liked this Bobbi Brown blush palette because it is the perfect compact, travel-friendly duo, complete with one of Bobbi’s classic brushes. You have a great bronzer, a shimmer blush/highlighter shade and a matte natural hue to achieve a variety of looks.

ViktorRolf $200 Value for $129

This classic Viktor & Rolf fragrance is my personal signature scent, so whenever it goes on some sort of sale, it always catches my attention because this perfume is esspennnseeeev. You’re basically getting two bottles for the price of one.
Long Drape Vest $118 for $58

I cannot tell you how many vest-like items I found in the catalogue – clearly, vests of all shapes and sizes are going to be big this fall/winter. I liked this camel/tan shade for its versatility and cozy shape. It also comes in Black or Grey. Plus, it’s basically 50% off.

VANS Slip Ons $64.95 for $42

I’ve been a big fan of TOMS shoes in between flip-flop and boot season, however; lately, I’m finding they’re falling apart a bit faster than I remember. I wanted to upgrade to some VANS and I am IN LOVE with this silver/taupe suede version. I’m totes getting these fo sho. They also will be on sale in five other colors/materials.

CT Instant Face $147 Value for $75

Ok, so THIS is big because this Charlotte Tilbury palette looks exactly like her “limited edition” Instant Look In A Palette, HOWEVER…. ::dramatic pause::… THIS palette features her iconic, best-selling Dolce Vita shades! This palette has darker shadows than was in the original face palette (as seen here), which is extremely smart when it comes to creating a variety of looks from day-to-night. Also, the cheek shades look a bit deeper/darker, as well… which is also better to suit a wider variety of skin tones than the first palette. If you haven’t tried Charlotte yet, this is a perfect way to do so!

Philosophy Purity $79 value for $53

You cannot go wrong with this cleanser, whether you have dry, combination or oily skin. It’s an incredible makeup remover and although I don’t always have this in my bathroom, it’s my favorite to travel with in mini-size because it eliminates my need to pack makeup remover/wipes. It smells delicately like a spa and when on sale, totally worth it. The tiniest amount will go a long way. I imagine this set will seriously last you at least a year using twice/day… if not longer.

Kate Spade Crossbody Bag $298 for $198

I’m a Kate Spade purse girl, so when I saw this classic crossbody bag, I fell in love with the price and style. Great for day-to-night and the leather and suede combo can take you through the seasons, as well.

Vince Camuto Cutout Bootie $149 for $99

A perfect boot to take you from late August – early November, these cutout booties have a low heel and I can imagine pairing these with a pair of dark skinnies, a loose-fitting t-shirt and topping with one of those longer vests when it gets a bit chilly! Also on sale in a taupe shade.

MAC Sunkissed Look In A Box $39.50

This MAC face set comes in a few different shade varieties, but of course, I picked the sunkissed bronze eye/nude pink peach lip combo. I’ve recommended MAC’s Fluidline gel liner several times before and the False Lashes mascara is decent. Of course, you cannot go wrong with MAC eyeshadow and the lipstick is just a bonus for the price. I’d value these kits around $75 for the $39.50 price.

Kendra Scott Lariat $120 value for $79

Last but not least, Texas’s own Kendra Scott. Another perfect piece for fall, this lariat-style necklace will be on sale in yellow gold, a pewter/charcoal, rose gold and silver. Hello price savings, also!
