Okay, so here it is. My one and ONLY (promise) post on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you want to get the scoop on the sale and more importantly, why bloggers go nutso bananas over it – I wrote this post with all the details. Basically, it all comes down to affiliate links and being a lucrative time to make money. But affiliate links have never been a big driver for me, mostly because I share a lot of the same things over and over again and also because I’m always hoping to inspire you to shop your own closet than necessarily buy a million and one things.
So, if you want to see every t-shirt, sweater, boot and more from the sale, this is not the post for you. Honestly, the sale has barely started and i’m already a little over it. That being said, there are some really good deals to be had and I have a few items (like the leather jacket below which I have worn in tons of posts) that i’ve had for sure. The good thing is a lot of items come back year after year (like the jacket) and this year, I was pleasantly surprised to find some diamonds in the rough.
To be honest, last year I spent $98 on the sale. I bought a pair of tennis shoes for Reese, some Spanx leggings and underwear. Exciting stuff, right? But you know what? I didn’t really need any big purchases and I didn’t feel like I missed out. I’d be wary about getting pressured into thinking this sale is the end all, be all. A lot of the basics aren’t the highest quality, so I’d stick to brands you know and love when buying.
Rather than load you down with options, I’ve pulled 10 items that I think are really solid finds – some are old favorites, some are twists on items I already have and some are just seriously good deals that I may shop.
