Best Investment Pieces at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - SCsScoop.com

The Farrah High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans

Retail: $225 | Sale: $149.90

I bought these jeans a few years ago at a previous Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and they have truly stood the test of time. They fit so well! Being on the taller side (5’8″) a lot of the denim on sale this year is not long enough for me. If you are a similar height definitely check these out, and if you are shorter, just know you’ll probably need to hem these. Either way, this style of AG jeans is SO good! My back-up option for high-end denim is Paige and they have some great options this year too.

Stuart Weitzman Darla Over the Knee Boot

Retail: $795 | Sale: $499.90

Stuart Weitzman hardly ever goes on sale and these boots went super quick last year. I don’t personally own these, but I have heard they are 100% worth the investment. If this is out of your price range, my more budget-friendly suggestion is this pair by Marc Fisher.

Tory Burch Crossbody – Everly Leather Flap Saddle Bag

Retail: $458 | Sale: $305.90

If you’re a Tory Burch lover, this is the time to take advantage of some GREAT discounts. I got a similar crossbody last year, and am eyeing the one above! Tory Burch has a couple other crossbody options on sale too. Whatever style suits you, you can’t go wrong with these bags! And if Tory Burch just isn’t your style, I would check out the Madewell bags on sale!

BLANKNYC Next Level Suede Moto Jacket

Retail: $188 | Sale: $125.90

These suede moto jackets are a great quality and something to wear year after year. I got one a couple years ago during this sale and it’s something I know I’ll have for many more years. If you really want to splurge, check out this leather jacket from ALLSAINTS and for a more budget friendly version, I suggest this jacket from TOPSHOP.

Frye Carly Tall Boot

Retail: $397.95 | Sale: $249.90

This is another item I bought from the sale years ago and they are still in GREAT condition. I love this style and color because they go with everything and can easily be dressed up or down. If you are looking for a similar style with a little bling, the Tory Burch ones are a great option!

Barbour Shoreline Water Resistant Waxed Jacket

Retail: $375 | Sale: $249.90

Barbour jackets are amazing quality and you can never get them marked down like this. Growing up, my siblings and I would hand them down as we grew out of them. The style above is the most classic style but there are some quilted options that are on sale and even more affordable this year too.

Vince Ward Knit Slip-On Sneaker

Retail: $225 | Sale: $149.90

Honestly, I’m still debating getting these. I’ve tried them on and they feel like walking on clouds! They’re so comfortable and getting $75 off is hard to beat. Slip-on sneakers like this are worth the investment in my opinion because you can wear them for multiple seasons in any given year and the classic look will last for years.

More budget-friendly pick: Ugg Slip-On Sneakers & this version from Vans is under $40

Tory Burch Tote – Everly Leather Tote

Retail: $225 | Sale: $149.90

Tory Burch never goes on sale like this with new styles. So, if you’re in the need for a new tote, this one is amazing. It has lots of pockets and it comes in a beautiful cognac color too. If Tory Burch and/or totes aren’t your style, I would check out this convertible hobo bag by Rebekkah Minkoff.

Hottest Items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Hottest Items in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - SCsScoop.com

It’s almost here – my favorite sale of the year. I have been looking through all the pieces included in this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale and there some items in particular I am confident will go fast! If you any of these hot items are on your list to grab, I recommend pulling the trigger are going to pull the trigger on.

Using my past sale shopping experience and a lot of research, I identified seven categories that are the hottest categories for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. There are definitely things that will sell out outside of these categories, but I focused on the hottest of the hot for y’all! For each category I went through all the sale items and identified 5-8 HOT items that are most likely to sell out completely.

Note: If you don’t have early access for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale, I will update this list next week for public access!

Now, here is the visual round up of the sale’s hottest items by category.

Boots & Booties

Cardigans

Sweaters

Fleeces

Flats, Sneakers and Slide-Ons

HOT Tops

Jackets

Denim

So there’s my round-up. There are a few hot brands worth pointing out as well. Barefoot dreams cardigans always sell out fast and there are several styles on sale this year. I shared my personal favorite cardigan above, but there are similar ones that will go fast too. Steve Madden shoes and boots always go quickly too, and the snakeskin flats I shared above come in several other colors/prints. Madewell also has a great selection of pieces on sale this year. I predict their cardigans and jeans will sell out the fastest. Topshop sweaters also tend to go quickly, and last year’s version of this sweater sold out fast last year.

I know it is a lot, but it is really just the tip of the ice berg. There will be lots more things, like fall essentials and basics like faux leather Spanx leggings that never go on sale and will definitely go fast.

I’ll share more favorites on the LiketoKnow.it app so follow me there if you want to see more. The app is free and you can also save items in there and make a wishlist to help keep track of what you want to grab.

I would love to hear what you’ll be getting this year, if you are shopping the sale. And, stay tuned for more from me on the Nordstrom Anniversary sale.

Cheers and happy shopping!

Shopping Tips & Top Picks for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Shopping Tips & Top Picks for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - SCsScoop.com

It’s that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale aka the NSale is about to begin and I always get super excited because it is the best sale of the year for new clothes. If you’re wondering what it is or don’t understand why it’s something to be excited about, I’ll explain! Every July, Nordstrom releases *new* Fall and Winter merchandise at super discounted prices. This is the perfect time to stock up on basics and classic sweaters, jeans, boots, bags and tops that you can not only wear this fall and winter but for years to come! Now, here are some shopping tips and my top picks for the Nordstrom sale!

The Timing

This year there are more phases for shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. In addition to the typical Early Access and Public Access there are now in-store shopping days for icons and ambassadors before Early Access begins. Early Access is available to all Nordstrom debit or credit card holders. Nordstrom also offers a $60 bonus note if you sign up. There is still time to open a debit or credit card.

  • July 12th, 12:30 PM EST: Early Access begins in stores and online!
  • July 19th: The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public
  • August 4th: The sale ends.

Shopping Tips

  • Before the sale starts, go through your closet and think about what basics and/or fall and winter pieces you need (or just really want, ha!). You can check out my Ultimate Fall Fashion Checklist for an easy start!
  • Try to shop the sale as quickly as possible because items sell out quickly! There is a maximum quantity of anniversary sale items sold. So, if you want to make the most of this sale and get the year’s hottest items, then I recommend acting fast and getting Early Access.
  • The best way to shop the sale is online. Shipping is free, and there will be a much larger selection of sale items and sizes online. Considering the new phase of in-store shopping for icons and ambassador, I highly recommend shopping online.
  • If you an item you want sells out during early access, definitely check back on July 19th when the sale opens to the public. Many items will be restocked to some degree then.
  • Booties and cardigans are the most popular pieces for this sale year after year, so if you have your eye on any particular ones that I share, bookmark the links!
