Happy Monday! With less than a week to go before the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends, it’s time to buckle down and get those items you’ve had lingering in your shopping basket. I shopped the first couple days of the sale and it took until now for all my items (the ones that weren’t cancelled, anyway) to arrive. Surprisingly, there actually wasn’t anything in this batch that was atrociously bad like there was in my first try-on haul, and a couple things I really liked!
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!
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.
