It’s the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it’s probably the most awaited sale of the year. Today is the start of early access to the #NSale and I’m pretty sure you’ve heard a thing or two about it. Maybe a little too much and you’re probably thinking, “not you too” or “not again”. But hear me out. I’ve been sharing sales and the best deals ever since I started blogging in 2008. So it’s only natural that I share one of the most important sales of the year. Besides, with so many items on sale, I’m sure to pick something different from the other blogs somehow. Now, in case this is something new to you, then I’m going to tell you why people go crazy over this sale below. But first, let me share this outfit I’m obsessed with!
I’ve been eyeing this maxi dress for awhile now. So the moment I found out it was on sale, I just had to grab it without question. This Donna Morgan floral off the shoulder number retails over $100++. And for me, that’s too pricey for a seasonal dress that’s easily identifiable – meaning, after wearing a couple of times, you can get tired of wearing the same thing over and over again… or get tired of showing up in the same number. So when I saw it was marked down to $38, I snagged it in a heartbeat.
Unfortunately, where I got it from already sold out. But I still found this dress on sale at other stores here and here. Here, it’s still full price. Actually, it’s selling for $158 at the moment and I’m shocked! I guess that’s a last resort in case it sells out in the other stores I told you about. It’s a pretty dress and it would be a perfect summer wedding guest outfit! Umm, and if all else fails, Anthropologie is selling it for $228. What?
Now, on to business – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!
Why is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Special?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale features brand-new styles at discounted prices. Usually, other sales offer products that are about to go out of style, go out of season, or about to go out of stock. BUT, the #NSale features items that are just coming in, just in time for Fall season. And we know how Fall clothing can be pricey. So stocking up for the upcoming season at discounted prices is greatly appreciatd.
- What’s on sale? Women’s, men’s, kids’, beauty and home! You’ll find clothes, accessories, shoes, jewelry, home, and even beauty products that don’t normally go on sale!
- When is the sale? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 runs from July 21 to August 6. After that, the prices return to normal price.
- What is Early Access? Nordstrom offers early access to Nordstrom card holders. If you hate credit cards, you can simply open a Nordstrom debit card that links to your bank account. Early access starts today, July 13. That means, you get to shop the sale earlier than the rest. Which also means, you get first dibs. Items sell out super fast. So by the time the sale goes public, a lot of items are already gone. Bonus, you get up to a $20 note when you open a debit/credit card and make your first purchase.
Why is it more fun to shop the sale online? Well, for starters, Nordstrom offers FREE SHIPPING and FREE RETURNS. So if you got it in the mail and it doesn’t work out for you, you can simply return it without any shipping fee or any fee at all. No hassle making a trip to the store or getting charged something you’re not getting. PLUS, sales can get crazy in stores. I ain’t got time for that. I’ll shop right in the comforts of my home, please. Thank you! And did I mention how many items are on sale? It’s going to take forever to see every one bit in store. So again, I’ll be in my pajamas, in bed, browsing the sale on my phone or laptop… with coffee in tow!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Early Access
Before I share some of my favorites, I have to say that another reason I love shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is that it gives you Fall outfit ideas ahead of time. You can start planning your Fall wardrobe before the season even starts, while saving up on brand new Fall clothing. Just take a look at some of the screenshots of the Nordstrom #NSale Catalog below and you’ll already get ideas for Fall outfits this year.
This was one of my favorite #NSale finds last year. It’s the Spanx Faux Leather leggings and I’m happy to report that they are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale again this year! If you’ve been following me for awhile now, then you may have seen me wear the leggings over and over again last year! It was such a great investment piece because it was so perfect for Fall – the faux leather look, the warmth it provides, and more importantly the support it gives. It was easy to slip on, but it hugs and flatters your body! Now, I’m thinking if I should get this one this year.
I’ve screenshot some pages from the catalog at the bottom of this post. But I’m listing down my favorites below.
I think this moto jacket is going to be my favorite purchase this year!
