Recreated from this year’s sale:
I know, I know. No one wants a sale that reminds them colder weather is coming in summer. But so many of you asked for Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts and some of the deals are good (think sweaters, boots, and and workwear). Here are my must haves from the NSale and the dates when you can shop the Nordstrom sale!
If you have any questions at all, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or DM me on Instagram. Whether you’re deciding between products, have special sizing concerns, or just want some personalized recommendations, I’m happy to help you navigate the sale thoughtfully. I am all about making sure you guys get THE BEST DEAL possible – not just trying to sell!
When you can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
This year’s sale is different than all other years in that there is a preview period where people can see the items before the sale goes live. See below for when you can get early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and when you can shop.
July 24: Everyone can preview the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale sale
August 4-18: Icon members can shop in select stores and online
August 7-18: Ambassador Level Cardmembers can shop
August 10-18: Influencer Level Cardmembers can shop
August 13-18: Insider Level Cardmembers can shop
August 19-30: Everyone can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
September 1: Prices go up!
I’d recommend shopping the Nordstrom sale online. The selection and sizes were extremely limited in stores last year. Some of the items had only one left and Icon and Ambassador members were the only ones shopping! As a disclaimer, I do earn a very small commission of purchases made through my links. I appreciate your support and my promise to you is never to lead you astray. As always, I will promote things I believe in on Visions of Vogue – even during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
What to get from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
After browsing the preview, I have a few thoughts about this year’s NSALE. First, there are fewer items than last year which I kind of like because it’s not as overwhelming. Second, I’m really loving the preview because it is allowing me to plan in advance. As y’all know, I’ll be rebuilding my wardrobe in light of the burglary of our Public Storage unit and I’m so excited to see classics like this blazer, this blouse, and all the boots in the sale. There are quite a few basics that I love that still are the same level of quality as normal Nordstrom items which I’m happy to see back like the Barefoot Dreams sweaters and throw blankets (there are really beautiful prints this year!). As always, don’t feel pressured to buy something you don’t need. I’ll be sharing what I’m getting to rebuild my closet!
Best NSALE Sweaters
When it comes to the sweater section, I’ve always had amazing luck with Barefoot Dreams cardigans (you CAN size up if that is all that is left!!) and the Chelsea28 sweaters (I ended up buying this in 3 colors last year!). I usually pass on the BP items because they are itchy and don’t hold up well. However, I do think that for the price point, the Dreamers by Debut sweaters are a great alternative for $30! This year, I linked a few colors of the same item below. Almost everything comes in multiple colors but I know sometimes it’s hard to see that in these round ups!
Best NSALE Boots
My go to brands for boots are Vince Camuto (size up a half size) and Marc Fisher. They both make great quality boots and you can’t go wrong. If you need a fresh on your boot wardrobe, scan those brands first! I personally love the Stuart Weitzmans with the higher heel in this year’s sale too for a splurge option. If you’re looking for a save option, try these Steve Maddens!
Best NSALE Tops
My favorites are the Hunter plaid shirts and this pleated tank top because you can wear it casually or to the office. I’m also really thrilled to see an affordable cami on a budget that is better quality than prior years as well. These are really great to layer under blazers for the office too!
Best NSALE Workwear
Best NSALE Shoes
I personally will be re-purchasing these suede mules which I got in last year’s sale and also come in leopard print. For casual outfits (since we seem to be wearing more casual lately), I love these white platform sneakers and these wedge sneakers in black!
Best NSALE Jackets/Coats
Don’t miss these snuggly fleeces for under $50 – they’re good. This is the best heavy duty puffer and here is my pick for a packable puffer. And if you don’t have the Blank NYC suede jacket yet, this is the best time to snag one (size up if you don’t like things tight on your arms)! I’ll be rebuilding my collection with the beige from this year’s sale.
Best NSALE Dresses
Best NSALE Activewear
For fans of Zella leggings, there are quite a few in the sale under $50.
Best NSALE Pajamas and Loungewear
Best NSALE Denim and Pants
The Spanx faux leather leggings are heavily talked about for a reason! Surprisingly still in stock!
Best NSALE Beauty
For anyone concerned with wrinkles, toning, and lifting, keep close tabs on all things NuFACE! There are a couple packages (I’d recommend all but just ask me if you have any questions based on your concerns)!
Best NSALE Bags, Jewelry, and Accessories
These stud earrings are the best (they look very real – I will be rebuying) and come in all colors of metal!
Best NSALE Blankets and Home Decor
My advice? Buy Barefoot Dreams (whatever is left in any color). There are some really stunning new prints like this diamond throw. The classic solids are still here in 7 colors and the leopard print in black and white is still left!
Best NSALE Bras and Underwear
Best NSALE for Men
