It's that time of the year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is upon us. This is one of my favorite sales of the year for one very special reason: this isn't a sale where what's left over at the end of the season goes on sale. No sir. This is a sale where next season's pieces from some of the hottest designers are on sale right when they hit the floor - before the season even begins.
WHEN IS THE SALE?
This year, early access begins July 12th at 12:30 PM EST. The sale opens to the public on July 19th, and runs through August 4th.
WHAT IS EARLY ACCESS, AND HOW DO I GET IT?
All Nordy Club Cardholders (Nordy club itself is free to join, but card holder is the key here!) get early access. If you're not already a cardholder, you can apply any time before July 10 and you'll get a $50 Nordstrom Note! If you aren't already a cardholder and want to shop, I encourage you to consider joining. Not only are there great perks, but many of the items sell out during early access, and not all of them get restocked. You've been warned.
WHAT DO YOU SHOP FOR?
Honestly, I focus on staples. Classic jean silhouettes, a perfect fall boot or bootie, sweaters, outerwear - things I will love and wear for years to come. I also usually allow myself 1 splurge - a statement item that I absolutely adore, that is *me* enough to stay in my wardrobe, but unique enough to add interest to any look.
SOME FAVS OUT OF THE GATE
My love of Frame denim runs deep - it's the only line of designer denim I've found that fits me perfectly right out of the gate - no alterations (which are free at Nordstrom!) needed. This year, I'm hard-core crushing on the Flares being advertised. I also have my eye on these high yet loose Sam Edelman boots, a slouchy TopShop sweater, a ribbed dress, and the new Marc Jacobs crossbody - I just have a feeling about that bag, guys. I have a feeling.
A FEW FUN NEW FEATURES THIS YEAR
Two things highlighted this year that are new and exciting are 1) A signature cocktail, available for $9 and 2) On Saturday, July 20th, Nordstrom will host an Anniversary Sale Beauty Bash event featuring access to hundreds of beauty exclusives, complimentary beauty consultations and applications, and a limited-edition Nordstrom tote with a $125 cosmetics purchase.
That's it for now! Can't wait for the sale, and to share my finds with you. You've let me know you're looking for great buys (under $100) and are interested in seeing my picks for Evie and Gabe this year too! Are there any specific pieces or events you're shopping for?
