GUYS. It’s that time of the year again. It’s the Superbowl of sales in the blogger sphere.
I AM COVERING BOTH MEN’S AND WOMEN’S LET’S BUCKLE UP FOR THIS SALE RIDE.
I feel like every blogger and their mom talks about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale or “The NSale”. So I am going to keep this brief and also try to my personal twist on this. I’m going to give some tips and tricks to score what you want. I will give my top picks on the catalog. I am going to do a follow up post of the items I pick up tomorrow and how to style them. I have an early ambassador pass because I am a tiered cardholder and I will take full advantage of that for you guys. This is the first early access like this for cardholders HERE IS A BREAKDOWN OF THE ACCESS DATES BELOW:
***DISCLAIMER THE NORDSTROM SALE CAN BE OVERWHELMING. IF I DON’T MAP OUT AN ITINERARY OF MY ITEMS, MY ALLOTTED FITTING ROOM TIME I WILL NOT GET OUT OF THERE. DON’T FALL FOR THE PROPAGANDA. I BOUGHT A MINI BEAUTY SET LAST YEAR ON IMPULSE AND IT’S STILL FULL IN MY BEAUTY DRAWER. I TYPICALLY TRY TO STICK TO BRANDS I KNOW/OWN DURING THE SALE. EVERY ITEM I’VE LISTED IN THIS POST I OWN THE BRAND IN MY CLOSET/OR HAVE WORKED WITH. DON’T BUY AN ITEM FOR THE SAKE OF A DEAL. MAKE SURE IT’S A WORTHY DEAL AND A BIG GAP IN YOUR WARDROBE THAT YOU ARE NEEDING TO FILL THIS FALL.
For the guys or girls that don’t know about the sale. The NSale is a sale on THIS UPCOMING SEASON’S FALL ITEMS. You read that right… not past season, not old sale colors or products that will be discontinued. It covers BEAUTY, HAIRCARE, CLOTHES, SHOES, LUGGAGE, HANDBAGS, ATHLETIC WEAR ETC.
Nordstrom hand picks brand new items that are on discount for a brief window (JULY 19 – AUGUST 4). I cannot stress this enough. It’s perfect timing for back to school and excellent timing to lay your foundation for your Fall wardrobe. Did somebody strategically plan that or what?! (LOL)
YOU NEED A GAME PLAN WALKING INTO THE SALE OR SHOPPING ONLINE FOR THIS AS WELL. My first tip is you need to map out what you really want/need. A lot of things are on discount… you will be swayed to buy something because “it’s a good deal.” Get your blinders on. Think about what you need for this season or gaps in your wardrobe you wanting to fill. I’m already seeing a lot of snake print items I want (including a snake print pair of denim) and I already have two pairs of snakeskin pants (I don’t “need” this).
I see every blogger buy the same darn cardigan every year because “it’s on sale.” FOR THE LOVE OF GOD. PUT THE CARDIGAN DOWN AND INVEST IN A COOL TRENCH OR LEATHER JACKET OR PRINTED COAT THAT YOU CAN WEAR FROM DAY TO NIGHT. I love cardigans as much as I love salads… that lettuce is not going to fill me up. Mama is going to have to eat again… VERSATILE PIECES PEOPLE. SAY IT WITH ME.
This goes for guys too. Chad, put the damn black Northface jacket back on the rack. Buy a cool bomber or statement jacket. THERE IS NOTHING SEXIER THAN A MAN IN A NICE COAT. That’s the closest best thing to a guy being shirtless to me.
Remember the sale starts for cardholders on July 12th at 12:30 am EST and July 19th for non-cardholders.
