What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
OK, dear readers, this is that time of year when all of bloggerland goes crazy! Every single fashion blogger will be styling their favorite picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. So, in case there is anyone who doesn’t know about this sale, here is some info. It’s a once yearly sale where Nordstrom releases new fall merchandise at deeply discounted prices. Lots of basics and staples go on sale too, so it’s a good time to pick up some of those. It’s a bit difficult to think about Fall fashion while we are all in the midst of summer heat, so I plan to go easy this year. I will look for just a few basic pieces from among the following:
–quality sneakers: totally trending, and since they can be pricey, this is a good time to pick some up
–high-end denim: this might be the time to pick up that pair of nice designer jeans you’ve had your eye on
–jewelry: some nice pieces that are hot for fall are on sale
-shoes, including trendy boots and booties: I like to pick up one cute pair of booties for Fall at this sale as they sell out quickly
–menswear inspired trousers: trending big time this fall
–sweaters: I know, it seems WAY too early, but fall will be here before you know it and some of these pieces are marked WAY down
For those of you in the East or Midwest, there are also some big savings on outerwear, so be sure to take a look at that! Oh, and there are lots of cosmetics and fragrances on sale, too. Not to mention handbags and accessories. Whew, the list goes on…
For those shoppers who REALLY shop Nordstrom all the time (Level 4 shoppers), they got an advance peek on Wednesday, but Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts today for the rest of us basic cardholders! You can get some ideas on Instagram; check out #nsale2018.
Yes, one does need a bit of fortification as one embarks on spending $ for this sale!
The sale calendar
I seem to recall having great difficulty getting through online last year and I really don’t want to shop in the store! I am just going to go at this online with no stress and take it as it comes. Our local Nordstrom is The Shops at Mission Viejo and I know it will be crazy there! I do go to the mall and stores just to see what they’re showing, but I have become an online shopper for the most part. Once you get your sizing from various stores and brands down, it’s pretty easy to do. How do you like to shop?
If you follow any other bloggers, it will be a fun time to see how all the fashionistas style their fashion finds from the sale. I would love to hear about YOUR finds, too! It would be so fun to do a post featuring all of you with your purchases, large or small! Send me your picts to firstname.lastname@example.org
For now, it’s still summer, right?
I’m actually heading to Northern Michigan next week to spend time with my BFF, Kathi. So, my finds will have to wait another week. I will still be sharing some summer looks next week, so if your head is still in summer mode, like mine, be sure to take a look!
One final note: The next round of Faster Way to Fat Loss starts next Monday, the 16th. The first week is prep week so you have plenty of time to gear up and learn all about the program. I wrote about it in this post. All I can say in addition to that is, it works!
