What’s selling right now? I have the inside scoop! 🤍
Back in pre-pandemic days, when I was working as a Nordstrom Stylist, I always arrived before my first appointment in order to “make the rounds.” Every day, I would wander through the entire store stopping by almost every department to see what was new. I always wanted to know what was selling, and learn any product knowledge I could. It reminded me of my time as an Interim Store Manager where store managers would greet salespeople and give high fives where it was deserved! Those days are long gone, but I appreciated being in my element and knowing pretty much everyone in the store. We would joke because sometimes they’d say “you won’t like what we got in today …” You see, they knew the kinds of things I was looking for: cool, stylish pieces that were going to fly out the door. So, you might ask, what’s selling right now? Well, I have the inside scoop!
Today’s post is about what’s actually selling in stores. I’m talking about everything from the hottest new denim to the shoes everyone loves to the dresses that are on fire right now. These best-sellers work for all ages, and they are FLYING out the door! Some of these new items might be low inventory, so don’t wait too long, because the good things always sell out quickly. Let me know how you do!
P.S. I’ve been writing a lot lately, so I’m including two recent blog posts (here and here) I think you might like to read (or re-read). This week’s Reels Video showcased this dress, and you won’t want to miss it! It already sold out at Nordstrom, but I found it for you here.

Dresses are on fire!
Everyone is looking for dresses for every occasion
I really can’t think of an easier way to get dressed – one and done, that’s the beauty of dresses. Right now, I’m getting lots of graduation dress requests. Since I have two boys graduating this year (one from college and one from high school), it’s time I start thinking about it too! The Vince one above is gorgeous and a strong consideration, and it also comes in white. Some other dresses to consider include this one by Milly and this best-selling Zimmermann style. Both are easy and will work for all your summer events! Here are a few more top-sellers.

Rails is always a favorite in the spring
Every year, Rails looks better and better, and the collections keep getting larger. I just love this brand, and it’s perfect for warm summer days, nights, bbq’s — the list goes on and on! This gauze top is the perfect summer shirt, and very versatile with everything from denim shorts to a slip dress tied at the waist. Below are my top picks!
Update your denim!
It’s the backbone of every closet
My four personal favorites
You all know how much I love Mother denim, and it’s still a top seller at Nordstrom. So is Frame, Paige and AG! It’s hard to narrow it down to 4, but here you go 🙂

AGOLDE denim shorts
If you love denim shorts, these are the only ones I recommend. I know there are others, but since I’m careful about what I suggest on my blog, the inside scoop is that the best-selling Parker shorts are a total win and are flying out the door! People love the length, and the light color washes are perfect for summer.
Jeans under $100 — Whetherly brand
My girlfriend who works at Nordstrom has been giving me the inside scoop on Whetherly denim and how incredibly popular it is. While I believed her, I didn’t quite jump on board … until now. I noticed on Nordstrom.com that several styles have five-star reviews – and that’s a good sign! This is the pair everyone is loving.
Little Black dresses — these 3 are so good
Since everyone is in dress mode right now, it makes sense to give your LBDs an update. The three best that will cover you for every event (and not break the bank) include the Vince slipdress, the Norma Kamali “Diana” gown that Jessica Parker wore, and the style I shared in yesterday’s IG Reels video. You can’t go wrong with any of them!
Shoes, shoes, shoes!
Sandals of all kind are selling fast, and these Gucci rubber slides are hot right now and surprisingly I’ve found them to be quite comfy. My two favorite sandals are these by Marc Fisher and these Sam Edelmans (only in tan or black patent) — so cute!

Cute, flat sandals you’ll wear everywhere
I’ve been on a bit of a jewelry mission since I’ve been looking for a few pieces to update and refresh my own collection. Missoma is a favorite brand that’s selling quickly. This tennis necklace sold out (I found it here), and if it sells out again, here’s the inside scoop: check here and you’ll probably find it 😉 There’s also a new brand called Kozakh. It’s super cool — check out the selection here.
The designer bags under $1550 that work for everyone!
This YSL camera bag is the perfect crossbody bag. The Mini Lou is a little smaller, and it’s the one I own and love. For a small bag, both of these fit a surprising amount of things: keys, sunglasses, readers, cardholder, lipstick … you get the idea! It’s one of the best designer bags available under $1500. For something completely different, this Mansur Gavriel – Bottega inspired pouch is another favorite, and is both stylish and versatile.
