- What to Buy?
Number one must buy: denim! Your favorite jeans can be a bit pricey outside of the sale, so this is the best time to get a quality pair. Even if you don’t need them now, you will wear the heck out of them later! Don’t miss the opportunity to get the biggest bang for your buck! I always say to invest in denim. 2 or 3 high quality pairs of jeans will work wonders for your wardrobe and as stated before, this is the best time to get a pair significantly cheaper than normal.
Who doesn’t want new tops to spice up their wardrobe?! New tops are the first thing we go to when we want a change. It’s so easy to pair the same bottoms with 10 different tops, which is the best way to make your wardrobe last. Stock up on basic, solid tees as well as statement tops while the sale lasts!
Working out is everyone’s favorite thing to do right?! Maybe in another life! Well you won’t feel guilty about buying athletic wear from the sale even if you only make it to the gym a couple of times. Let’s face it, half the time we still wear athletic clothes when we have no intention of working out! This is a part of the sale you definitely don’t want to miss because these pieces last year-round.
You don’t have to say shoe sale twice! Trust me, 40% off just released designer shoes, doesn't get much better than that. This fall is going to be all about booties, booties, and booties! I’m in love with some of these from the sale and I know you will be too. This is my favorite part because nothing wins my heart more than a sassy pair of booties or heels!
Anniversary sale quick TIPS:
- Be prepared:
Take some time to go through your closet and make a list of things to replace or that you know you need. It will help you make smart decisions if you have an idea of what you want before hand! For example, I will be looking for layering pieces, booties, transitional tops, and fresh denim. (I also always buy my kids shoes and something fun for the hubs.) If you are really ready to save some serious money: jot down who you buy for at Christmas and knock some of that out early as well!
- Don't hesitate:
If you are a shopper who likes to add things to your cart and think about them for a while, this is NOT the time to do so. Chances are...you will lose all of those items. Nordstrom offers only a small quantity of each item and once it's sold out...well it's sold out. I tend to over-buy so that I have choices and simply return the extra items I don't need. Nordstrom is well known for customer service and their return policy, so don't overthink things you like and snag them before it's too late!
- Shop early:
Early access begins July 12th for Nordstrom cc holders. You can apply for a credit or debit card here. Again, hot items sell out fairly quickly so the earlier you shop the better! Seriously I can not stress that point enough :-). The sale opens to the public beginning July 20th.
