Tips For Shopping The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
- Get The Nordstrom Credit card, or they have a Debit option if you want to force yourself to have self-control. The benefit of having a Nordstrom card give you early access. The sale for card members starts July 12th and honestly this is almost a must. During this time is when so many things sell out. It’s been known for hot ticket items to sell out in 15-30 minutes once the clock strikes Midnight.
- Set yourself a budget. This is the hard part! there are so many great things available from sweaters, shoes accessories and so much more. You will likely see 1,000+ post from your favorite style bloggers showing you all the amazing things. You will WANT IT ALL…trust me on this. So defining your budget, saying it out loud, writing it down and even telling a friend will hold you accountable!
- Make a list. Start looking through your closet(s) right now, TODAY. Write down the items you need. For instance I need a new black cardigan, black booties, running shoes and a few new sweaters. Look at what you have, don’t have and what is starting look worn. Replace these items, then make room for some of the fun, new fall trends. This is the perfect time to get all your basics, especially while they’re ON SALE!
- Look at trends for fall and find a few that really work for you and your style. Grab a few key items that fit into these categories so you can have them to mix and match with your wardrobe all season. So many of these trends work now and all the way through next Spring. So it’s ok to splurge on a few of these pieces.
- White booties
- Pointed SHoes
- Crop + Flare Denim
- Leather, Suede, Corduroy
- Multi-Color items, like color blocked sweaters
- Western Details and Stitching
- START BIG and Scale Back later. this will contradict my next statement, but here’s what I mean by this. buy the things you both love and not sure of. You may also need to order a couple of different sizes because everything fits differently. Once you get your items in, take an afternoon, try everything one and see what you think. Sometimes you love what you thought you wouldn’t and hate what you thought you’d love. Luckily for all of us Nordstrom as a great return policy so it’ll be easy to send back the think that didn’t work.
- Don’t Get Carried Away. Back to one of my previous points. You will be seeing a ton of cute items all over the place. But don’t get carried away and caught up in the excitement. Stick your style and what’s right for you, your style and your budget!
