(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:
nordstrom petite favorite things 1

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.

a Rafflecopter giveaway

This giveaway is open internationally to anywhere that Nordstrom ships to! Winner will be drawn at random on December 25th, 2014. Thank you for entering, and good luck!

    Hi ladies – thank you so much for entering and also for your patience! It took a few more days than expected for me to filter out any duplicate entries, and also manually input all of the entries from these comments. The two lucky winners have been drawn and announced at the top of the post…I so wish I had a gift card for everyone. I am thankful for your support of this blog and wish each of you a happy holiday + new year!

  3. Hi Jean. Happy New Year to you. I am attending a couple of weddings in January. I live in Southern California which is usually sunny but it's been chilly lately. This Saturday is the first wedding I'd be attending and it would be in the low 60s. Ceremony is outdoor at 1pm and reception indoor. What outfit do you recommend? I was planning on a one shoulder fitted dress but it might be too chilly. Any suggestion is appreciated. Thank you.

    Uh oh.. I was filling up the bonus entry but accidentally closed it and it wont let me edit. Just wanted to let you know that your sense of fashion is such an inspiration and I don't usually want to let my self get inspired by someone younger than me. I love the pictures you posted plus your writing is the most informative amongst the ones I came across.
    I am petite too, too embarrassed to admit but what the heck, I am even shorter than you. My clothing size was never above the smallest one in the petite collection and that is why I worship ASOS for having smaller petite than the american brands.
    My figure is a little fuller now that I had children, but still around the 2 smallest petite sizing.
    Not working anymore since I had my first child a few years ago. But still love to get ideas on how to dress up better to build my confidence. And you are such a help with your findings.
    Hope to see your blog around for many more years!

  23. When I saw the red dress I had to purchase it – along with the scarf…so to me these were my two favorite items. I plan to wear the dress on Christmas and for New Years. I will accessorize it different of course

    Last year I purchased a Halogen 'Letterman' Sweater x-small petite (Blue Mazarine w/ a big letter A) that has been a hit at work since day one. I've gotten so many compliments!!! (FYI: teachers in our district always wear blue each Wednesday to show unity as educators). Oh, wait…. here's the best part – I managed to wait for a few months and purchased it at 40% off!!
