Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: Top Picks and Best Buys

By  | 

Savings on fall fashion, beauty, handbags & shoes have started at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has begun! It’s the shopping festival of the year for many fashionistas.  But as some of you already know, although the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale officially is now open to cardholders, the website was overwhelmed this morning by the sheer volume of traffic.  The sale is open exclusively to cardholders until July 18th.  On July 19th, the sale will open to the public.   Although some items are sold out on, call the Nordstrom customer service number and they may be able to find the item you want in-store and ship it to you.

One of my favorites from this year’s sale is the Topshop V belted Multi Color Dress.

At the beginning of the sale, for a short time, the website allowed shoppers to only browse and save items to their cart–without being able to check out!   Since items do sell out, without being restocked, there was a loud outcry on social media, and particularly Twitter (as there is literally every year), when shoppers weren’t able to get the items they wanted at the sale prices.  Due to work commitments, and website issues, I wasn’t able to shop the Nordstrom sale in-store until the weekend.  Here are the items I saw in person, and was able to try on.  Here’s my take on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale best buys to help you shop and get the best for less.

    Thanks for the tip on topshop. To me, this is Nordstrom’s best ever anniversary sale. Men and women were stocking up for the year. Only problem is that alot of merchandise is sold out by now. I hope they replenish.

      Thanks Julie. Yes, some great things have sold out–but some good things are still left. A few things I missed, I hope they restock
