Susie’s top 10 picks: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
I love helping my dear friends and clients select the very best items on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. After all, it can be a little overwhelming (and exciting) because, well … we all love a good deal. So check your closets and see what you need — then get ready to have some fun!
Why is the Anniversary Sale a big deal? Because it’s brand new fall merchandise, on sale before the season even starts, and it gets marked back up in a few weeks. So, now is the time to buy the main pieces of your fall wardrobe!
The #1 strategy is to focus on those items that are most likely to sell out. Some customer favorites literally sell out the first day, and sometimes they don’t get restocked. Today’s post is about the top 10 items I think are worth grabbing before they’re gone. Don’t wait … buy them as soon as you can!
By the way, everyone is asking me how they can shop online and make sure I get the credit. I really appreciate this, thank you so much! You simply click on this Nordstrom link, or any clickable link below, and shop away!!
#1 Favorite Denim
Denim is always a great buy on the Anniversary sale, and the good news is, this year the selection is REALLY GREAT! All the styles below are tried and true, so you can’t go wrong. These are jeans you’ll year all the time from here on out, so stock up and you’ll be really happy you did!
#2 Vince collection
Vince is always a favorite, and this year my top categories are sweaters and dresses! The dresses are perfect to buy and wear now, and I love this one and this one. If you don’t already own this crop legging, now is the perfect time to try it because it’s SO GOOD. It’s not on sale, but it’ll go with every single thing you own. I also love this Vince jacket, this sneaker, and this silk top and skirt.
AllSaints is always a favorite brand, and their leather jackets are the best. They can be a little spendy though, so NOW is the time to buy one … and you gotta act quickly because they sell out every year! Their sweaters are also super cool and a little edgy, which makes them extra stylish with denim. Try this asymmetrical style — it adds interest to your denim and booties. Other top sellers include this style and this one, and this jacket is super cute too.
#4 Paige collection
If you’ve been following me for a while, you know my love for the Paige brand, both denim and sportswear. This year I recommend everything in the photo above (side note: I never show anything I don’t love)! I predict both blouses and the cami will sell out, and so will the jeans. This sweater is the prettiest color and is a tiny bit sexy. Grab it while you can!
#5 Fall/Winter Coats
Coats are one of the single best things to grab on this sale when you find one you like. The prices are incredible — not that different from when I was a coat buyer several decades ago 🙂 Last year, this Halogen one sold out, so don’t wait! There’s everything from puffers to cool leather coats to faux fur. And, the belted coat is super stylish and most everyone can wear it!
#6 Sparkly jewelry
A couple of years ago, I bought this Poppy Finch necklace at the Anniversary Sale and I’ve worn it almost every day since. Here’s a bracelet I love this year — it’s beautiful! Also, if you want to splurge on a Michele watch, now’s your chance. I’ve worn mine DAILY for the last 8 + years, and I still absolutely love it!
#7 Best of shoes
I’m pretty picky when it comes to shoes, and believe in purchasing things like boots carefully since the season is still a couple of months away. Some favorites include Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots (these and these,) Paul Green (these and these), and these Rag & Bones — they’re amazing!
#8 Barefoot Dreams
#9 Beauty Exclusives
While I have A LOT of beauty favorites to share with you, here’s a short list. (Check in tomorrow and the next day when I’ll be sharing more finds.) For now, start with the Diptyque candle set, it’s the perfect time to try out several scents and these make the perfect gifts. These sets sell out EVERY YEAR! Same with this Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk kit. Don’t wait 😊
#10 Workout Favorites
Athletic wear companies are always coming up with enhanced designs and better fabrics, and sometimes a new piece or two can be just the inspiration you need to get you moving again. Now is the time to pick them up, so you can be comfy AND look good while you work out! The style board above is a good place to start.
Thank you for reading, and have fun shopping the sale! xx
