Hi, Chicster in today’s post ill be sharing my five best buys / must-haves to shop from the Nordstrom Anniversary. If you are on a budget then today’s post is for you. This will be our 4th year covering this sale and our 2nd year of really taking a deep dive in. From our stats, I know you guys are budget-conscious shoppers and that you love a good deal. So I’ll be sharing with you the best deals I’ve found so far while shopping the sale, while these items maybe at a slightly higher price point the value over time makes them a lot cheaper than some of our usual buys.
First Item I always buy in the Nordstrom sale is my U neck T-shirt by Caslon These shirts are usually priced between $25-35 after the sale but during the sale, they are typically around $15. Wanna know why I’ve purchased these tee’s full price and why I stock up on them during the sale READ this Post.
PRO Tip: wear a size 16-20 the Nordstrom Sale is probably the only time you will find certain in-house brands have sizes XXL and 18-20 in stock.
Second Item is my Madewell Transport tote ( sadly not on sale) these totes range between $120-150 full price and some may say that’s quite expensive when you can get a tote for $25 bucks. I can tell you without a doubt that those totes wouldn’t last past 3 months of wear for a girl like me. My transport tote (similar on sale) has been carried by me almost every day in the last year (work bag with a laptop in it) and there is not a pulled stitch in sight. The leather has worn in beautifully I’d say it was my top purchase from last year. This tote is on sale this year
The third Item would have to be my Chelsea boots by Mark Fisher this boot is inspired by either Saint-Laurent (see me in here) or all saints. I wore it last fall and winter with dress, jeans, dressed up and down. It always added the right amount of edge to my looks and over time it molded well to my foot and because is leather still has a lot of life to it.
PRO Tip: wear an extended shoe size Nordstrom Sale is the only time you will find certain brands make shoes ina size 11-13
The fourth Item has to be what I’ve termed my Boojee leggings both from Zella and lysse typically have leggings that sell at around $50 mark. So when they come down during the sale they are a must have Zella leggings are performance leggings that hold you in and wont show your underwear. Lysse also hold you in, hold there shape and will not have be thrown out after a couple wears honestly their ratings speak for them self.
PRO Tip: If something you want is out of stock keep checking for it items restock daily. An easy way to keep tabs on it all the wishlist function on the LiketoknowIt app. Download from your App Store search “Supplechic”
The final category I recommend checking out is the outerwear, my suede vest from Trouve probably one of the best items I picked 2 years ago its a timeless piece that is made so well and can add that extra touch to any look its paired with from work to weekend. Like every other piece here it wasn’t cheap but the QUALITY means I can wear it for yearsssssssss. Love this Jacket and this trench from the sale
Picked up this skirt from the sale something about it looks so lux, its made of a silk-like fabric, what makes it stand out is the pleating on the side of the skirt. I decided to pair it with a red bucket bag and my green pearl slides. I got it in the largest size which was a size 18, I will say that you have to be careful of snags with this skirt aside from that its great. It also comes in a green floral but that version seemed to fit a little snugger.
All, right guys, these are five things/categories that are my best buys from the Nordstrom Sale. When you invest in your wardrobe guys it pays especially when it’s on sale. If you are trying to stretch your dollars and get the most value then these are your best bets.
