Hi Ladies! Ok so you’ve heard the hype from EVERY blogger by this point about the sale of the year from one of mine and your favorite retailers, The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! To be honest I never really jumped on the bandwagon mainly because I felt like it got so overwhelming for you and honestly for me! But this year I decided to take a closer look by your urging. So many of you reached out asking me to cover this sale and asking for my recommendations that I thought I thought I’d give it some attention. If you’ve never shopped the Nordstrom SALE before, it’s not a regular sale, these pieces are new fall pieces and only on sale for a limited time. Prices go back up to regular price in early August! So it’s your chance to stock up on Fall Trends at a great deal.
Things sell out fast, like really fast. I got to presale at 10am and they where already sold out of a ton of stuff! I had to stalk two other San Diego stores to get what I wanted so my advice is if you love something buy it now don’t wait because it will be gone and rest assured because Nordstrom has a great return policy if it doesn’t work out!
Now let me be clear, I was super selective about what I would share with you and truly selected what I loved and what I thought would add add value to your closet.
Things to Keep in Mind:
Luxury is not included in this sale so I really focused on everyday basics that you can effortlessly mix into your wardrobe. My strategy was quality vs quantity!
DENIM: The most flattering fit for me AND all women (unless you have no hips and are a size 0) is a high rise so that is what I narrowed it down to, the MOST flattering denim for you! I payed a lot of attention to quality of wash and cut. The denim I didn’t include was because to be honest, it made hips look wide or the wash didn’t stand up to par for me. AND I TRIED a LOT of Denim!
SIZING: I included the sizes I bought for reference if you want a similar fit. Remember size is nothing but a number and my goal is always to style for an effortless fit NOT to fit into a number!
Below is a FALL Checklist to to get you started and keep you focused on need vs want!
Hope it helps! Xo Happy Shopping!
