Today’s the day! You heard me chat about this big sale over the last few weeks. But today is FINALLY time to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to the general public! You can officially start shopping beginning today for non-cardholders. The sale ends August 8th and prices go back up to full price on August 9th.
Today I’m sharing my personal curated Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog. These are items I’m eyeing, buying, or just love and wish I could buy or afford. It’s a sale I truly save up for and always know I’ll end up investing in lots of goodies for the next season to come. And for right now too. Nordstrom has done a great job in recent years making sure there are lots of ready-to-wear items for the current season. But also tons of great fall and winter essentials as the sale is known for stocking up PRIOR to the season beginning. This is the BEST part of the sale eas you won’t find any winter boots, sweaters or coats on sale for months to come. And many are exclusive to the sale in terms of style and or colors! Here’s what I’m shopping and loving.
My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog
PS a few tips to shopping the sale is to get in early. Shop NOW because things will go fast. But also check back in just in case your favorite item is back in stock (or was returned, etc). Creating a wishlist with your Nordstrom account is the best way to keep tabs on things too. You can also buy something in a different size as well if your size is out of stock. Why? Well, hold onto it as it may get re-stocked once the sale is over and just swap it out for the size you need at the Anniversary Sale Price.
Little insider tip as I used to work at Nordstrom, it’s totally acceptable! Since Nordstrom has the greatest return policy, don’t be afraid to overbuy and hold onto things for a few weeks to make sure you love them. It’s always easier to just return than to have to buy it at full price if it ever comes back in stock.
But it goes without saying, don’t feel the need the buy all the things just because it’s on sale. The price and exclusivity can give you a false sense of “need” versus “want”. Really look at your closet and what you need or what you’re really hoping to shop for.
A great thing to stock up on if you’re into athletic wear. I plan on buying some new workout tanks, running shoes and athletic socks. Since these items aren’t usually super trendy, it’s a great deal as they’ll last year after year.
Fall & Winter Essentials
The whole reason why you should shop this sale! From sweaters, to coats, to scarves and more, now’s the time to get all the things! I’m definitely looking to get some fresh sweaters and a cozy cardigan or two.
jackets & coats
I’ve written a post almost every year on My Style Vita about my everyday basics from the sale. From everyday scoop neck tees to socks, SPANX, jeans and so on. Plus, great office wear that can help freshen up your 9-5 wardrobe. There are always great pencil skirts, shells, blazers and more. Now is the time to stock up on things that rarely go on sale but that you’ll wear all year long and year after year.
go to basics
For the first time, this year the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has several of my holy grail items as part of their beauty deals. This particular sale usually does a deal versus a discount on a price that goes back to full price. If you’re a fan of any of these items, now’s the time to snag them. I personally use the Hourglass primer and the Necessaire body lotion and body wash that is so heavenly and makes a great gift too.
I think this is my favorite part of the sale. There are lots of great unique pieces that come out specifically for this sale. True show stoppers. Plus, who doesn’t love shoes!? They’re my most favorite thing to shop for no matter the time of year. I always go home with one new pair of sneakers that I’ll live in year-round. Plus, usually a fun pair of heels or something trendy. It’s a great time to try something new for the upcoming fall season that you may not really normally gravitate towards thanks to the great price.
And let’s not forget about BOOTS! This is THE TIME to get yourself winter boots. I know it seems SO early but this is the whole point of the sale. GRAB THOSE BOOTS! Because when you actually NEED them they’ll be full price. If you live in a colder climate I think you already know the importance of grabbing new styles before the season begins. The good stuff sells out fast! Grab those Hunter rain boots, Sorel snow boots and everyday basic boots too.
Home Decor & Gifts
This may seem crazy, but this is actually a great time to pick up some gifts. Whether you have baby showers, bridal showers, or just want to get a head start on Christmas shopping, these items may never be back in stock again. And most definitely not at these prices. I also sincerely love the home section during this sale. I pick up several things every year like candles, towels and decor. I’m also in the market for a new duvet and sheet set and think I’ll for sure be picking up something new today!
