I love these monthly round ups! Such a fun way to see what you girls are loving. Most of my Top Ten from August were Nordstrom Anniversary Sale pieces that are now sold out. I thought it would be more fun to share items that you can still buy as I continue to show you ways to wear everything!
A little back story on how I go about seeing and gathering this info:
I’m an affiliate influencer with rewardStyle. This means that if you click on any of my links that take you to products on my site, 90% of them are affiliate links that are tracking to see if a purchase was made through your click. If someone makes a purchase, then I get a small percentage of the total price of the purchase. Same is true for most other bloggers and influencers you follow.
On the backend, I can only see what the driving item is that got you to the retailer. I cannot see what other items were purchased, nor can I see who made the purchase. For example, if you click on this link (Highwaist pocket 7/8 leggings ) and you purchase this item plus three other items. I will only be able to see that a purchase was made and the striped sweater is what got you from my website to the retailers website.
I also use this information to understand what items you guys are liking and buying. If I am constantly linking to products that get hundreds of clicks each day, but no purchases are ever made, something is off. Is the price point too high? Is the retailer not trustworthy? I’m using this data to make sure that I am bringing the items you want to see each week! If I see that a dress from LOFT sold really well but is now sold out, I’m going to try to find a similar dress, buy it and style it so you have another option if you missed out on the first option.
I also appreciate it so much when a purchase is made through my links. Giving credit where it’s due is important and honestly, very easy! I work incredibly hard to run Loverly Grey. There is a ton of work that goes on behind the scenes to simply share one Instagram post or Blog post. I truly love the work that I do and know that it’s made possible when my followers click through and make purchases through my links. Although this might sometimes be an extra step for you, it’s completely free to you and allows me to continue sharing sale alerts and styling tips!! Just know that I’m so THANKFUL for you and appreciate when a sale is made via my link!
Now onto the good stuff – The August Favorites!
