I’m going to make this short and sweet because I am currently wearing a baby and have 15 minutes until my other kids come home from camp, but it’s my duty to give you the information you need because this sale….. well, its the best sale of the year. It’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale or the #NSale, if you will.
What’s the big deal anyway?
The big deal is that Nordstrom marks down BRAND NEW arrivals. We are not talking about the season’s picked over styles. No. We are talking about new arrivals for the upcoming fall/winter season that you can shop at discounted prices. The sale runs July 14-August 7th. If you have a Nordstrom Card, you can shop the early access which is July 14-22. On July 22 the sale opens to EVERYONE and then prices will go back up on August 8th. Capice?
What should I buy?
Well that all depends. My best advice would be to think forward to fall and assess what your wardrobe is missing. Maybe you need to amp up your basics with a new pair of jeans, leggings, some cozy sweaters and killer booties… or lets be honest, UGGS (and there is an awesome pair similar to this, but suede and cuter that are part of the sale for $112!) – Note, I can’t actually link to the pieces that will be on sale because they aren’t on the site yet! ***UPDATE: Now that the sale is LIVE you can click here to see some of my initial favorites. Full post to come tonight! Here are some of my favorite pieces from the sale last year:
I didn’t actually buy that sweater on the left, but regretted it all year. It’s hard shopping for knits in July, but what can I say, #firstworldproblems.
Working girls? Maybe your workwear game is lacking and you need a new blazer and wearable pair of pumps?
Or maybe its the accessories? There are typically major markdowns on Rebecca Minkoff (my fave) and Tory Burch bags. We’re talking like $100+ off. Oh, like this amazing bag here, they will have in brown suede for $196.
Boot lover? Tory Burch and Hunter Boots are usually the first to go so act fast! There’s a new Hunter Original that’s part of the sale that will be $129 marked down from $195.
You can also score good savings on outerwear – for me though, it’s hard to imagine parkas in 90 degree heat. If you you can block that out, then go for it!
And lest we forget the undergarments. Fan fave bras like Natori and Wacoal will also be marked down. This is one of the best bras for all time and will be on sale for $44. Hanky Pankys will also be in on the action.
What about the kids?…. this bad boy usually goes on sale. In fact, this year I think Honest is featuring a lavender gift set for $32 which is a great baby shower gift. For my own kids I usually look for sneakers, jeans, and winter coats (more expensive, but necessary items).
And for the men, it’s a good time to refresh the work pants (my husband usually buys a pair of these flat front Ted Baker trousers, but recently his company changed to ‘casual’ so he had to buy a pair of big boy “designer” jeans (shhh don’t tell!). He is still wary of wearing the same brand as me…
Tomorrow I will be on the scene and will do a big post of all of my initial favorites… think lots of dressing room selfies. In the meantime, do a mental closet edit and be ready to shop before bestsellers are gone!
Oh, and this might help…
