Happy Friday! And welcome to Dressed for My Day, where my goal, with each and every post, is to inspire and help women like you and me to get dressed for our unique days so we can engage with those around us authentically and graciously. When I discovered that the pretty green t-shirt dress I’d photographed to show in today’s post is almost sold out, I decided to pivot and simply introduce you to the brand and tell you why I love it. Meet 1901, one of my favorite Nordstrom Brands.
BONUS: So many of the styles I’m showing you from 1901 today are significantly marked down. Yay! But they’re selling out fast.
Named for the year the iconic department store first opened its doors, Nordstrom’s 1901 brand pays homage to the classic foundations of a stylish wardrobe. But, while the name reflects the past, the clothing line consistently brings fresh perspective to wardrobe essentials such as button up shirts, blazers, skirts, trousers, cardigans, t-shirts and dresses. Perhaps that’s why this clothing label resonates so much with this modern classic style gal.
This simple, clean cut t-shirt dress is indicative of the brand. It features a feminine silhouette constructed from 100% cotton. And it includes the kinds of details I’d expect from a Nordstrom brand, including pockets and fine-tuned stitching. Last I checked it’s only available in a couple of sizes in navy and white stripe or black. Maybe oh maybe they’ll replenish it for summer.
I love adding my Levi’s denim jacket over this simple dress. The blue denim and green look especially nice together. 1901 has a classic denim jacket, too, and it’s 40% off and fully stocked.
Let me go ahead and share with you the other details of this outfit, and then I’d like to tell you about other 1901 pieces I own or love. First, let’s talk jewelry.
In order to let the green steal the scene, I kept my accessories minimal and nude. I’m wearing my leather 40-hour flats that I got in the Everlane (one and only) sale. They’re made of luxurious Italian leather. They do run small. Size up a full size. Then when I first tried these flats on they still felt a little snug, but they almost immediately stretched a bit to form fit my foot. Now they feel fantastic. I love the nude shade, but they come in four other colors, too.
And I’m carrying my new Everlane Day Market Tote as well. It appears to no longer be available in this soft taupe shade, but is still listed in the beautiful cognac and black shades. I recently gave my daughter my Madewell tote (which I still love) when I bought this one in the Everlane sale.
I’m so bummed that this dress is no longer available, but I do want to tell you more about this brand. In fact, many pieces from 1901 are currently marked down significantly. And let me remind you of a few that I own and love. First up, my red 1901 blazer.
I’ve found 1901 blazers to fit true to size. In both, I have a size 8. They also have a nice trim, fitted silhouette. I really like that. And they are made from stretch cotton twill, so they have a little give. But I especially like that the lining in these blazers is well fitted to the jacket, inserted correctly and made of beautiful contrasting fabric.
I also have and wear the 1901 Chambray shirt. It’s currently fully stocked and 50% off.
I have a medium in this chambray shirt. I think a chambray shirt is a wardrobe essential; they’re so versatile.
I also recently added this “Palm Trees Ocean Breeze” t-shirt to my wardrobe, but I haven’t had a chance to take photos with it yet. I have the medium and it fits nicely. This t-shirt and several other cute graphic tees are 50% off, too.
Here’s a collage of a few other 1901 pieces that I absolutely love. Then I’ll provide a shopping widget filled with everything from 1901 that I’ve mentioned or shown today.
I find 1901 to be a moderate priced, high quality brand that generates classic, but current styles. I find the blazers to fit true to size, but the pants I’ve tried on seemed to run a bit small. Let me know if you have any questions.

Blessed for My Day
I don’t believe God ever sends tough situations into our lives to test us or just to see how much strength we have. While this sentiment is expressed often in Hallmark movies, the Bible teaches us that God uses our problems and trials to build strength into our character. In fact, any strength that we have apart from that which God has built into us is faulty and often based on pride. That strength will eventually crack under pressure.
But the strength God weaves into the fibers of our character is built on faith and trust in Him – in His promises, His ability, his power and His love for us. That kind of sound strength does not disappoint. How is God currently building strength into your life? You can thank Him for those difficulties because you know good will come of them.
We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love. ~ Romans 5:3-5
