About “THE” Sale
If you don’t know what the hype is all about I’ll tell you … once a year Nordstrom gets in NEW fall merchandise and marks it at special price exclusively for the Anniversary Sale. These prices actually GO UP after the sale is over. Yes, they go back up. So it’s the only chance to get BRAND NEW STOCK AND NEW TRENDS at this great price! The sale has hundreds of items from clothing for all, jewelry, gifts and more.
Below are links that go directly to Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale. I am showing you just a small slice of the sale to help guide you, but feel free to check out the whole HUGE sale.
Ends August 4th but things are selling out F-A-S-T!
My Picks – if anything is sold out make sure to check back …they usually restock several times during the sale…hopefully!
BLAZERS MAKE THE OUTFIT!
Plaid is huge and I’m so happy about it. It’s always been so classic yet whimsical at the same time. There are several plaid jackets to note on the sale. All different weights and price ranges. Here are a few of my favorites.
The Halogen Plaid Shawl Collar Blazer is only $98 (Reg $149) I’m loving the fringe bottom and the blue read and yellow combo.
Check out the Halogen blazer here
The Harriet Blazer below is a much higher price but is GORGEOUS! It is also red plaid but had a contrast black trim that gives it a more tailored look. Designer Veronica Beard’s blazers are always beautiful. This one was $650 but for the sale it is $434.90.

This is the one I purchased. I love how lightweight it is and how when you roll up the sleeves it has a chambray color that goes so great with jeans!
This jacket is usually $139 but is $92.90 for the sale.
Check out the Vince Camuto Ponte Plaid Blazer here.
ALSO AVAILABLE IN PLUS SIZE HERE
Not a plaid person? Oh well, we can’t all be. There are several solid colored blazers on the Anniversary sale too! I can’t possibly list them all.

SHOES & BOOTS
Here’s the link to all of the shoes first, in case you want ALL OF THE SHOES!

Now for some of my picks, those who know me know I have very few shoes for a girl who loves fashion so much. Heck I have very few shoes for any girl. This is because of my crazy feet. So with that disclosure, I am going to show you my favorite looks and values on this sale. Not the ones I can wear…insert sad face here.
This is THE sale to buy boots. Because boots are bigger than a shoe, they are always so much more than shoes! The deal is substantial. These are knee high boots by Vince Camuto and are fabulous. They come in a beautiful tan suede, black, or for the daring fashionista, a snake skin look. These are a staple for your fall wardrobe for sure! Regularly $239.95, now $159.90
See all 3 colors of Vince Camuto Nestel Knee High Boots here
Another staple that can take you from the early fall into spring are booties. These leather booties come in a chestnut suede color that is so unique as well as a black and snake skin option. This brand boasts its waterproof finish and even I find them comfy. Usually $149, the Anniversary Sale price is only $99.90!
Get your Blondo Eliza Waterproof Bootie here
I’ve always loved Vans, even with a casual dress for a fun look. These suede versions definitely bring it up a notch. And look at that RED. A color for the season that’s for sure. Oh, and notice the padded back on these for comfort!
After Sale $64.95, right now NOW $42.90
Get your Old Skool Suede Vans here
These are the shoes I wore in about half of my dressing room photos this season. I love the leopard print – still so in style! The heel is short so it can be worn with jeans for a lunch out or at the office.
After Sale $139.95 NOW $89.90
Get your Sam Eldelman Jari Half d’Orsay Pump here
I noticed these the second I opened my Anniversary Sale catalog this year. I love the popular shape and the cutout detail makes them very unique.
Comes in Tan, Grey and Black and for under $100!
After Sale $149.95 NOW $99.90
Get your Vince Camuto Kimora Cutout Shield Sandals here
I am so glad the dressy sneaker is “in”. You can wear them for hours and still look so stylish. The Blondo’s are especially nice because they boast a waterproof coating already on them. Here’s a side zipper style I like. I like the top zipper as well but I don’t see them on the website anymore.
Comes in 4 colors Black Suede, Leopard Suede, Light Pink Suede, Mushroom Suede
After Sale Price is $119.95 but right now for Anniversary they are only $79.90
Get the Blondo Georgette Waterproof Hidden Wedge Sneaker here

CARDIGANS, JACKETS & SWEATERS, OH MY!
I know it’s hard to think of sweaters and jackets right now with much of the United States having temps with a heat index over 100 degrees, but trust me, if you pass these deals up in a few short months you’ll be mad at yourself and paying full price to warm yourself up when it gets breezy!
Here are my picks although there are so many on the sale:
This long, but not to long cardigan is not super thin but lightweight and comes in several beautiful colors. Some colors are sold out but check back for restocks.
Regular and PLUS – In several colors Oatmeal, Burgundy, Green, Grey and Pink
After Sale $69 NOW $45.90
Get the Longline Cardigan here – Still available in Burgundy and Oatmeal
This is definitely a fancier and more tailored look cardigan that almost looks like a jacket. I checked and if you take out the tag it is reversible with the “unfinished hem” look on the other side. I would totally do that to get two jackets in one, especially at this price.
Petite and Regular
After Sale price is $378 – NOW $249.90
Get the Checked Wool Cardigan by Eileen Fisher here
The snake skin look is so popular and here to stay for a while. Why not grab that statement piece either in a boot or a jacket. This Moto jacket is such a good price point to do so.
Was $98 – for the Anniversary sale only $64.90
Get your BlankNYC Moto Snakeskin jacket here
This sweater is bulky but lightweight so it still works here in Arizona for the winter. I wore it partially tucked in – to see go over the the other blog post of my dressing room selfie session and see for yourself. I really like the stripes but it’s nice to have solids too.

Get the Wubby Fleece Pullover by Thread & Supply here
This is a flattering blouse because it does’t have all of the buttons down the front but it has a couple to show just enough neck for a pretty necklace. Wear it out or partially tucked in.

Comes in Leopard, Black/White, Mauve Mist, Pumpkin Spice

Why are some jeans so expensive? – Premium Denim! Premium denim is made with the best fabric, sometimes hand distressed, and sewn with extra care. The denim I tried on was soooooo soft and had a little stretch to it. These are closet staples, meant to last. You’ll totally be able to tell the difference. To get these jeans at this price and have them be the latest styles is awesome.
Check out my favorites. Wardrobe musts for the fall – at least – one skinny, one boyfriend, one black pair.
These are called “ex boyfriend” jeans because they are not as boxy as boyfriend jeans. They fabric is so soft an comfy; these will be my go to jeans all season.
Regularly $225 they are $149.90 for the Anniversary Sale
