The below content is about the 2014 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
(A lot of my original picks in terms of specific items are still available — at the very bottom of this post you can see which ones are no longer available. Some, like that gorgeous orange peplum blazer, are only available in limited colors.)
For today I also thought I’d revisit my original roundup of brands — some I’m taking off the list because they’ve sold out, or what’s left in the sale isn’t great for work. (That said, for some of the brands, I swear there’s MORE inventory than there was last week — so they may be adding pieces.)
Bags: I’m seeing good representation from Brahmin, Kate Spade,
Longchamp (including numerous colors for the expandable Pliage tote), Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors (including the reader favorite, the Jet Set line of totes), Rebecca Minkoff (including a ton of basic black bags and reader favorite M.A.B. tote), Tory Burch and Vince Camuto
Shoes: There’s a ton of great choices from Stuart Weitzman (but not as many as last week!). There is also a good selection from a number of brands in our Guide to Comfortable Heels, including Attilio Giusti Leombruni, Børn, Cole Haan, Enzo Angiolini, and Ivanka Trump (but not as many as last week).
and Tory Burch.
General Clothes Notes: Lots of choices from Burberry, Classiques Entier, Diane von Furstenberg, Eliza J, Halogen (including reader favorite, The Skirt), Joie, Karen Kane, and St John, Tahari, Theory, Vince, and Vince Camuto.
Lingerie: There’s a good selection from Chantelle, Commando, Hanky Panky, Natori, reader favorite Shimera camisoles, Spanx, Wacoal, and Yummie by Heather Thomson. There are also some online-only deals like a 6-pack of Cosabella thongs for $80 (normally $120).
Anyway — here are a few new workwear picks from the NAS. If you hover over the picture you’ll get details like brand, price, etc. They’re in order of least expensive to most expensive in each category. (Can you guess which is the most expensive and the least expensive just by looking at the pictures?).
Some general workwear picks, below:

Great coat options — my cape obsession continues…
There also seemed to be a ton of great plus-sized options, including suiting… a few picks:
