How to Shop the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale




Hey babes and Happy Sunday! I’ve had friends in town all weekend, family coming into town this week and then we leave for vacation a week after that, but I just realize- the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is happening THIS WEEK!!! It’s the biggest sale of the year and the time I tend to buy my fall and winter wardrobe because #sales and I like saving as much money as possible! I wanted to give you all a few tips and tricks to make your shopping experience more enjoyable and take advantage of the sales! Keep reading below for some strategies and some of my fave items I have my eye on!!


The Nordstrom anniversary sale is one of the biggest sales of the year! Nordstrom carries such an array of designers and price points already, so the anniversary sale is one where you can really invest in some timeless pieces you may have had your eye on over the last few months for a significantly discounted price! All of the items start out on sale July 21st and go up to the original price by August 6th.


THIS WEEK! Early access begins this Thursday, July 13th and will go until July 2oth. Normal access to the sale begins July 21nd and will continue on through the 6th. As a Nordstrom Card Holder  you get an entire WEEK to shop the sales before it’s open to the public. I highly suggest getting the early access as items will sell out very quickly and there are soo many good deals that will be happening.

Capture 5You can get a jumpstart on the sales by receiving early entry into the Nordstrom Sale by signing up for a Nordstrom credit/debit card! I use my card at Nordstrom Rack and Hautelook as well! Having a Nordstrom card is the best thing IMO because you get early access AND Nordstrom Notes which is a $20 coupon to spend however you like- the more you spend, the more points you receive and the more notes will end up on your card. Who doesn’t like free $$$ However… if you sign up for a Nordstrom credit/debit card today, you automatically get a $20 note to use towards the anniversary sale!

Untitled-1I recommend investing in some timeless pieces. This is the one time of the year you will be able to find high -end designer items for an incredibly discounted price. Think purses, a classic pair of heels, a piece of jewelry you’ve had your eye on. Another good option is to start looking at some Fall and Winter items. Coats will be on sale, boots, fall dresses, sweaters this is a great time to stock up and be ready for the upcoming season!

I would start browsing a day or two early and make a list of what caught your eye or make a list of some items you think you may like to invest in like I said above (purses, shoes, coat) and then go onto and look for those items. This will keep you from feeling overwhelmed when going into the Sale on Thursday. Shopping should not be stressful, it should be fun! A few brands I like that are already decently priced are BP, Leith, Halogen, Lush, BB Dakota, TopShop, Socialite, Everly Hinge, Wayf and lots more. A few designers I will definitely be browsing include Tory Burch, Kate Spade, Valentino, Stuart WeitzmanBurberry (for the fall!) PradaChristian LouboutinChloeSaint Laurent, etc.

Capture7I’m definitely going to look at bags and shoes- those are my two weakness and two things I love to splurge on. I am in love with this bag from Chloe… we’ll see how much it goes on sale for…. But, Tory Burch designs beautiful handbags and at an original price they aren’t tooo expensive, so when it goes on sale, I would highly suggest investing in one! This sale is also a great time to buy boots like THESE and THESE or stocking up on some items for your dad, brother, husband, boyfriend and so on!
