the first day of july has arrived. and with it comes hot and hotter temps. but if you shop at Nordstrom you’ll be dreaming of cooler weather and fall fashion: suede boots, leather moto jackets, and dare i say it, winter coats. yes, the infamous Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and July go hand in hand.
so what’s the big deal about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? let’s face it, retailers offer sales every week. but no retailer other than Nordstrom offers fall items on sale well before the season begins. some of my favorite designers are on sale during this timeframe – Vince, Michael Kors, Louis et Cie, Eileen Fisher, Madewell, Ugg, and J.Crew to name a few. it’s christmas in july y’all!
july 12 – 19th are the key dates to remember as Nordstrom cardmembers can shop the sale early before it opens to the public. this is an important shopping window as many items sell out. sometimes, once an item is gone – it’s gone. this has happened to me more times than i’d like to count. don’t forget that Nordstrom has more than just women’s fashion. they have a fabulous home department. two years ago i purchased this bar cart and matching accent table for my porch. our bedroom rug came from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale too.
if you like to stock up on beauty products remember these key dates:
or how about some new lingerie? top brands like Wacoal or Spanx will have many items on sale. if you missed my bras of summer collab with Wacoal on Instagram take a peek. but don’t forget about the men in your life (i have four) as there will be impeccable pieces at remarkable prices available.
now that Nordstrom has whetted our shopping appetite i’ll share a few items that caught my eye. yes, the early access catalog is published.
Badgley Mischka lavender wrap coat
Fiamma suede bootie | Letizia tall boot
Halogen knit top and belted skirt
Vince plush hoodie | Veronica Beard mercer jacket
Vince flat | Sanders sneaker | Cantara sneaker
i’ll do my best to share my favorite picks during this marathon sale. there’s over three weeks to shop before prices go back up on august 6th. phew! and i may have a try-on video or two to share with you. on your mark, get started, and stay tuned, ladies!
