(Now ended) Nordstrom favorite things $350 gift card giveaway

**Giveaway has ended. Congrats to Christine N. and Michelle B.! Please respond to my email to claim your prizes. Thank you so much everyone who entered and especially for those of you who shared a tidbit about yourself. I loved reading every single one!**nordstrom holiday giveaway header

I’m so excited to share one last giveaway for this holiday season (congrats to to Manda W. for winning my Lou & Grey one)! Two of you will win a $350 gift card to Nordstrom, and be sure to check my Instagram later this week for more being given away on that channel! Nordstrom is probably my favorite retailer, not only for their huge selection of extended petites and shoe sizing (starts at sz 4), but also their incredible customer service and free shipping / returns. I’ve had several favorite finds there over the years so was thrilled that they agreed to this giveaway for my readers.

To enter, simply fill out the Rafflecopter form at the bottom of this post letting me know what your favorite item from the store is, whether it’s something you already own and would recommend or something on your wishlist. I really loved reading through your favorites in the Anthro giveaway – it led me to check out several items & designers that I wouldn’t have otherwise! Here’s a few of my own favorite “picks” available at Nordstrom, several of which are wardrobe staples for me:

2. Studded low heels (runs half size small) worn in these posts
3. Shrunken-fit moto jacket (runs small) worn in these posts

5. Comfy low ankle booties (foot runs half size small) worn in these posts
7. Drape blouse from this post (they now make 1 size smaller than back when I tried it on!)
9. Tall stacked-heel boots (foot runs half size small) worn in these posts

And for fellow last-minute shoppers, I just noticed Nordstrom has guaranteed free next day delivery on numerous items (look for the “free delivery by Christmas Eve” icon) ordered by 12/23 12pm EST, which is pretty awesome….

I’m pretty sure Nick took advantage of this last year as I woke up to beautiful Kate Spade items on Christmas morning still in their express shipping box ; ) Amongst the ones I kept was a cell phone case with slit pocket for cards (fits ~ 2 cards comfortably – perfect for a main credit card + ID) which I love and get so many random compliments on. Here’s an adorable scalloped version that I wouldn’t mind updating mine to, plus a few other last-minute gift ideas. Only a few of these items are available for free express ship, but others can be found in-store:

**Giveaway rules**

To enter, fill out the Rafflecopter form below with your favorite item at Nordstrom! For a bonus entry (optional), let me know something about yourself…whether it’s what you do, what part of the world you’re from, your personal style, etc. I absolutely love learning more about each one of you. If you have any technical difficulties with the form, let me know in the comments section and I’ll manually log your entry.

One entry per household for this one, please. Duplicate entries will be disqualified.

  25. They just opened ( well, I just found it) a Nordstrom Off the Rack store by my house. My daughters and I have been there several times. I guess we went on good days because we got a bra for a penny and a great summer dress for three dollars. Love it!

    hi Jean,
    once I log into the contest, it says I already have two entries when I haven't completed either one, it's got a check mark by it and says I have two entries. I didn't answer the questions yet. is anyone experiencing this problem?
