The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here and one of the biggest sales of the year. This is a great opportunity to get some real bang for your buck. If you are shopping for fall necessities with family in mind or stocking up on holiday gifts this is a great stop. The sale is massive and can get overwhelming. I am not sure if it is the timer on the website in bright yellow or the amount of items selling out in record time but it is crazy. I have linked my favorite pieces on the sale and ones that I know will be popular.
-When shopping this sale I go in with a few things in mind to be effective.
- Go into the sale with a list of items in mind that you need for yourself or for upcoming gifts. Nearly all of my gifted holiday gifts last December were bought on this Nordstrom sale and I saved hundreds by shopping months ahead. With a list in hadn’t it will make it faster to navigate the categories of the sale before things sell out.
- When you find something you like don’t wait to check out.Nordstrom has free shipping on all orders so you don’t have to worry about waiting until you have everything you want in cart to checkout. The sale is a fantastic opportunity to shop but they won’t hold you items for long. The best of the sale sells out super fast.
- Stock to brands that will hold value and be in style this fall and next. I have seen many styles that were bigger last season than they will be this year because they are phasing out (EX: distressed skinny jeans). Shopping brands like Mother denim, Vince, and Marc Fisher will ensure you snag styles that are on the cusp of trend instead of nearing its end.
- Stock up on quality cozy items that you will use year round! This is where I shop for pajamas, robes, and slippers that I will get great use out of. Gifts for the holidays or upcoming birthdays can fit easily into this category of cozy shopping. I like to have a few gifts on hand stamped with ‘one size fits all‘ sticker that I can wrap for any occasion.This sale is a great opportunity to stock up on those for family members or friends birthdays in the future.
The UGG slippers are great quality and perfect for gifting if you know your loved ones size. As for the sweatsuit I would definitely say it runs large as my usual size was falling off my hips. I would size down if you are in between sizes. The Ugg blanket I love for a holiday gift or even a house warming gift for truly anyone that uses a blanket.
Tops and Sweaters:
This is truly the best time of year to purchase cashmere. I have to laugh while typing that because we are predicted to hit 100 degrees in Dallas today. Buying cashmere nearly Half off is always a good time to buy. These pieces are warm for fall and are stylish pieces you will get use out of for years to come.
I can’t say enough good things about MOTHER denim and I love everything they produce. They do run true to size and are super flattering on everyone I have seen them on. If you are looking for a quality pair of designer denim this is a great sale for you.
The best part of the Nordstrom Sale this year is the shoes. The Nordstrom team has selected an incredible variety of fall shoes that will leave you wanting more than one pair in your shopping cart. Here are a few of may favorites.
