It’s that time of year again, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is HERE. I used to work at Nordstrom and the month of July was complete mayhem. We started planning for this sale weeks and weeks in advance, and spent houuuurrrsssss setting up and cleaning up for what felt like an entire month straight. It was craziness!
Early Access has begun, which is where Nordstrom cardholders get to shop the sale early if they use their Nordstrom Credit or Debit card (FYI: It’s until July 21) . To be honest, it’s completely worth it because 9/10 times the best items are always sold out by the time the sale starts for non-cardholders (which is July 22 – Aug 8). And, even if they say they’ll “order it from another store,” an insider tip: they’re basically sending out an order into the Nordstrom Abyss, hoping that some nice person in another state will fulfill that item instead of selling it to their own customer (which honestly rarely happens during the sale…it’s all about that commission life, which is cut-throat LET me tell you). Now, don’t fret. If you don’t have a card you can easily sign up here; and if you don’t want a credit card…do the debit! It comes directly out of your checking account and costs you nothing. That’s the one I have and I love it (can you tell I used to pitch these to people on the reg?)
ALL of this to say: I am trying to make this crazy sale as EASY as possible for you! Even if you don’t buy anything today, take a look at what I rounded up below! These are all things that I’m dying over for Fall (even though California hasn’t really caught on to the summer weather yet, so while everyone is in Fall clothes in September and October, we’ll be feelin’ the heat and wishing we could slip on those over-the-knee boots already).
It’s all separated into categories, because that’s how all shopping should be. Seamless, painless, and long-line-less (does that make sense?). Happy shopping!
PS! The black bucket bag I got at last year’s sale is BACK, and in two colors. I’ve linked it below! It’s around $30 so don’t miss out on it this year!
