Nordstrom Rack + HauteLook = Plus Size HEAVEN
When I was a kid, my grandma’s favorite store in the world was Nordstrom. Every year for my birthday when I was a kid, she would take me out to a fancy lunch (we always ordered dessert), then we would go to Nordstrom and try on almost everything.
In hindsight, this sounds like the dream. But as a chubby insecure kid, it was always really tough.
As I headed into my pre-teen years, I was always in between kids and junior sizes. Then my grandma would try to put me into weirdly adult outfits. I still have some fear around seersucker after one particularly heinous suit she made me try.
This experience put me off of Nordstrom for years, and then I heard about Nordstrom Rack and HauteLook.
All the fancy outfits of my childhood, but that fit into my adult budget? And a sister store with even MORE deals?? I was SO excited, but I was nervous I would still never fit. Dang, was I wrong.
Nordstrom Rack and HauteLook are plus size heaven.
I was able to find some incredible pieces to add to my summer wardobe, ready for work and play and everything in between. They also like to make the shopping experience easy AF with a Universal Shared Shopping Cart between the two stores AND free US shipping on purchases over $100.
There were so many great options available, I wanted to buy the entire website. But, my closet is only so big. Here are my three favorite pieces for this season (but don’t worry, there’s a few that almost made the cut at the bottom!):
Planet Gold Kimono at Nordstrom Rack
Floral print is the love of my life. I’m a plant lady, and I want to bring the plants into my every day. This kimono is SO pretty and flowy. It adds a bright pop of color without adding weight. The Houston summers are NOT forgiving for layers, but this will make it through the fall for me!
Vince Camuto Floral Dress at HauteLook
Not going to lie, when I saw this print, I wasn’t entirely sold. Yet, it is flowers, but it wasn’t normally what I gravitate towards. But I take it all back. This dress is PERFECT. It’s stretchy scuba, so doesn’t hold wrinkles even after a full work day. It has pockets that actually fit my phone. And it makes my eyes pop. I’m wearing this all summer. Don’t care.
Bobeau Crepe Wrap Dress at Nordstrom Rack
Wrap dresses can be real hit or miss. Sometimes they fit like a dream. Other times, your whole chest is dangling on display. Which is cool, but not always work appropriate. This dress is perfect. It looks so professional, and a blazer thrown over it would be perfect for a power meeting. Add sandals and a fun purse, date night all the way. Plus red is always my favorite color to wear.
Overall, I am SO impressed with the prices, size range, and styles at Nordstrom Rack and HauteLook.
The pieces that almost made the photo shoot are these awesome ones (which I’ll totally share another time!):
- Dogs of Glamour Red Stripe Tee – The cutest little t-shirt perfect for Mookie!
- High Rise Vintage White Jeans – Not gonna lie, fell in love with these because they’re called the Alexandria.
- Aderica Rose Gold Platform Sandals – These comfy, shiny gold sandals fulfill all my Spice World dreams.
