How to Shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale + Giveaway





If you haven't heard yet, yesterday was the first day of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for early access only. An early access to purchased any of the Nordstrom sale items is given to Nordstrom credit and debit cardholders only. If you're interested in joining, head here for more information.

If I were you, I would take advantage of the early access. As soon as the sale hits the general public, a lot of the items sell out quickly. Trust me, I have egrets. I really wanted a suede over-the-knee boots for Fall but didn't purchase it during the NSale. I waited after and ended up not being in my budget anymore. Below are the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dates:

Early Access: July 14 - July 21
General Public Access: July 22- August 7. On August 8, all items are back to their original retail price.

So why is this sale so good? The #NSale is the best time to purchase brand new Fall fashion items at a fraction of the cost. I know it is July, but it is the best time to take advantage of any Fall pieces you would like to wear without paying full price. I am talking about Kate Spade, Theory, Rag & Bone items that get marked down.

Now, this sale can be very overwhelming. There's endless of pages to scroll through in every category. So I think it is best to be organized. Below is my strategy when shopping this sale.
  •  Create a list of items you would like this Fall. Take a look at your closet if there is anything you will need this Fall. This is the best time purchase a wool coat, anorak jacket, and boots with a sale price. Plus, they will last you through the winter! 
  • Use this sale to take advantage of purchasing high quality brands. Splurge on closet staples. They will last for years!
  • Stock up on basic items. I love the BP Department because not only are they affordable, the quality is great too. You can never have too many basics. They're perfect for layering.
  • Accessorize. I have hard time paying full price for any accessories like scarves and handbags. So if you love blanket scarves, now is the right time make that purchase.
I hope this helps you out with shopping! To help you guys out even more, me and some lovely ladies have a $600 Nordstrom gift card giveaway that is currently running. All you have to do is follow the instruction in the Raffle widget below to enter.

Below are my favorites from sale so far. Stay tuned because I will continuously share my favorites from the sale!

  17. I really love your strategy of making a list beforehand! I always make the mistake of just going in to 'see what they have' and want everything and like you said, become overwhelmed. I'll definitely be looking for a few staples like a winter coat and some good denim.
