The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (NAS) is so big and popular that it can be a little overwhelming and stressful! If you are still learning about this sale and want the basic information (dates, FAQs, etc.) check out my post called, “Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for Beginners!” In this blog post, I’m going to share my top picks, in each category, to give you an idea on what to buy! I’m also going to share EIGHT Possible Looks with some of the same pieces, so you can narrow down your wishlist, and have some REAL Head-to-Toe outfits, ready to go! So, if you’re wondering what to buy at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, this year…keep reading!
First of all, there are a few preliminary things I would highly suggest doing, immediately if not sooner.
1.) Follow me on Instagram! That way, you can tune into my stories and actually see me with products in-hand! I’ll even be trying on some pieces to demonstrate what they look like on an average person!
2.) If you can handle a credit card, (it’s not for everyone!), sign up NOW for your Nordstrom Card. It will get you early access to the sale, so you can shop on July 12th! (Otherwise, you can shop the sale on the July 19th.) Believe it or not, some pieces do sell out, before public access opens. Also, if you sign up now, you will get a $60 note to use on a future purchase!
3.) Follow me on the Like to Know It App! This is the place to find direct links to the looks I’ll be putting together (with Nordstrom pieces) on Instagram. It’s so easy to use, and starts with you downloading the app from your App Store on your phone.
What to Buy This Year at the NAS 2019
Before we get to the good stuff, let me first make a helpful suggestion. TAKE INVENTORY of your wardrobe! If you already have camisoles that are perfectly wearable, you may not need another one. If you are seeing a LOT of leopard print, you may have already reached your quota. Get my drift? Be kind to your wallet! Before I started blogging about fashion, I never spent over $500! (Which brings me to my next point…)
Determine your budget. Talk about it with your spouse. Then, prioritize the things you NEED followed by things that you would LIKE. Keeping your budget in mind, designate how much you want to spend on each category.
As far as categories to shop, I would recommend that you focus on those that you’ll wear over and over and OVER again! For me, the categories I focus on, first and foremost are Jeans, Coats/Blazers, and Shoes! I’ve lost count, the number of times I wore my favorite pair of skinny jeans by J. Brand, last year, my Pevista Booties by Vince Camuto, and my OTK Stretch Boot by Steve Madden. I saved $200 on these three items, because I got them during the sale!
Now, I’m going to share some of my top picks for this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, for EVERY category in the Women’s Department! (These links will be updated as we get closer to the sale! So check back throughout the sale window.)
