Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What I Bought

The final count down until the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale ends is officially on. The once a year sale on brand new arrivals, ends tomorrow at midnight. Meaning, prices go up Aug 7th. Now is the time to revisit the sale, and make sure you have purchased everything that has caught your eye.

This is when I like to think ahead to the coming months, or even year. I visit the kids section, and shop for back to school, buy kids shoes in the next size up, and even buy them a more formal outfit (like church wear, or holiday party wear).

Next, I head to the Beauty Sale. I take a look at what make up and beauty products I constantly use, and I buy more of them to have on hand for when I run out. Some of the items I have bought so far have been: Basic Make-up Brush Set, Anthony Glycol Exfoliating & Resurfaces Wipes only $12 and makes a world of a difference, St. Tropez Self Tan Bronzing Set, & MAC Look in a Box Nude Eye Kit.

Last year, I bought the PMD Personal Microderm Device (can’t even express the amazingness of this!) and this year it is included again! I bought the ghd 1-inch Gold Styler Hair Straightener at full price, and it was worth every single penny! It reads your hair as you pass over it, and adjusts the heat to ensure no damage or breakage! I am so shocked it is on sale, don’t miss the chance to get this at a discount. During the sale, there are beauty kits included, and mini lip kits that would make perfect stocking stuffers and gifts for Christmas, and you bet I buy now when they are discounted.

My husband’s daily wear consists of basic tees, and jeans. I buy more basic t-shirts for him during this sale when they are so so cheap ($13)! Every guy can always use more plain white, black, and grey t-shirts.  Every week my husband wears a white dress shirt to church. Those stain so easily, so I plan ahead and buy a couple during this sale for when his current ones aren’t looking so crisp and white any more.

If you have been wanting a new rug for your home, now if the time to get one! Literally there are hundreds of gorgeous area rugs! I am kicking myself for getting my living room rug weeks before this sale. On the bright side, I did get my annual sets of fresh towels, sheets, and linens! We are pretty picky in this household about quality of those things, and I am picky about getting the best deal. this sale is the best because we are able to get high end items, that our household needs, while saving money. Their Home Sale is so good this year!

My personal favorite thing to shop during the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is Women’s Clothing & Shoes. Because, I heavily believe in a yearly closet refresh, as well as treating myself 🙂

Some of the most popular items of the sale have been:

These Vince Camuto Booties, the Sam Edelman Raisa Bow Flats in pink (but all colors/prints are cute!), Open Toe Karina Block Heel Booties, this Socialite Cutout Choker Tee is a steal at $17! It looks very low cut, but it isn’t, it fits just like a regular v-neck tee would. The Pleione Cold Shoulder Tie Sleeve Sweatshirt is one of the softest shirts I own! I wear this pair of SPANX Higher Power Mid-Tigh Shaping Shorts with most of my dresses and skirts, and it is amazing, no wonder it is a top seller! Every girl needs a pair of classic heels in both black, and nude. These Charles by Charles David Maxx Pointy Toe ones are it! This pair of Joe’s Dark Wash Skinny Jeans are so perfect for wearing with boots and sweaters all fall/winter long. The Maggy London Catalina Dress is one of the hidden gems of this sale, and I am so happy to see that it is a top seller. The fit is beyond flattering, and I love the red for the holidays, and the black will be a staple in your closets for years to come. For only being $40 these Vigoss Jagger High Waist Skinny Jeans are a steal! I have a pair of leopard heels that I wear year round with sooo many looks! If you don’t have a pair, I would strongly encourage you to get these Sam Edelman Tia Pumps. Most days you can find me in basic tees, and I love this cute take on the basic tee! Grab a few of these Treasure & Bond Gathered Pleat Front Tees .

Below you can find the round-up of everything I personally bought from the Nordstrom Anniversary sale! These items I have included I truly love, and know will be closet staples for years to come.
