#NSALE: Public Access Starts TONIGHT!

NordysAnni

From tomorrow (July 20th) until August 5th, the hyped Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will be open to non-cardholders (and cardholders). Unfortunately, many items have long sold out or only are available in a few colors and sizes.

For those of you eagerly anticipating your turn at the good merch, I’ve updated my original list of picks to only include items that still have plenty of options in stock, and also added a few new picks (in green!)

If there’s something you had your eye on that is sold out, fear not. Every year there seem to be a ton of restocks the first day of Public Access. There will also be restocks randomly throughout the rest of the sale as people start returning things. In addition, I’ve had occasional success finding sold out items by shopping in store.

To be honest, at this point most of the stuff I ordered still hasn’t arrived yet, and I also haven’t had ample time to try out the things that have arrived. I’ll hopefully be able to give a final verdict on everything by the end of next week!

Onto the stuff!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Picks (on a budget!)

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is back in full swing and I couldn’t let it pass by without sharing all the great deals I’m shopping for! This year I did almost all of my shopping online as my school/clinic schedule makes it difficult for me to be available during store opening hours. I think there are advantages and disadvantages to both online and in-store shopping so I highly recommend you guys try a mix of both to get the best stuff!

If you’ve been living in a shopping hole and have no idea what the #nsale is, look no further than this blog post I did a couple years back!

The sale started on July 12th for cardholders and will open up to the public on the 19th. Since we are already a few days in at this point, a lot of items, sizes, and colors have already sold out. For stuff you really want, definitely check back often for restocks, and remember to try looking in store as well! While normally I try to promote fiscal responsibility, with this sale my mantra has always been buy now, ask questions later. Nordstrom’s generous and easy return policy makes it a no-brainer! Of course, you won’t be able to buy anything right now without a Nordstrom Credit or Debit card, so make sure you shop with one or find a friend who can!

Let’s start with the things I’ve bought so far. I am limited by my student budget so all these items are under $65, and most are under $40. Many of these items I ordered in multiple colors and sizes. Most of it won’t come in until next week, and hopefully I’ll be able to update on all of the stuff once I’ve tried it on.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Early Access Round-up

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is meant to be treated like a marathon, not a sprint. If you try to race through it like Black Friday, chances are you’ll end up tired, dehydrated, crampy, and cranky.


That said, I wanted to shared what I’ve bought so far as a means to help you focus in on the good stuff if you’re feeling overwhelmed by the literally thousands of items that are in this sale. I did my shopping in a couple rounds, online first, then in person with my mom in tow. I’ll definitely be able to comment much more on the stuff I saw in store, but I’ll try to be as comprehensive as I can.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Catalog Picks!

The annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is like Christmas in July. Great deals on brand new merchandise for the upcoming fall season? No wonder it’s become one of the most epic sales around.

The catalog for this year’s sale is out, giving us a preview of a selection of products that will be part of the sale. I’ve gone through and pulled out some of my top picks to share with you and show you just why I’m so excited for this sale…which starts in less than a week for cardholders!

Sometimes I feel like I could’ve lived in Victorian times because of how much I love a good puffed sleeve. I’m like Anne of Green Gables in that way.

Just in time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opening up to non-cardholders, I wanted to share some of the things I got from the sale, as well as some other recommendations for things I don’t personally need right now. A few of these items are currently out of stock, but if you have your heart set on something, be sure to bookmark and check back often as items get returned and restocked. Also check in your local Nordstrom store as their stock varies widely from the site.

Onto the clothes! Continue reading “#NSALE Buys”
