It’s time, friends! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here! (well, if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder, it’s here…if you’re not, you’re just annoyed that everyone else is pre-shopping and you’re left out. Sartorial politics, I tell you.) By now, my annual guide has become a bit of a tradition, so I hope you’re as excited as I am to show off my picks from the best of the sale. I’ll have those for you bright and early tomorrow morning.
But first, a little pre-game strategy session. Pre-sale starts tomorrow, 7/10, and it opens up to everyone on 7/19. If you’re dying to shop early, just go get a Nordstrom Debit card and be done with it. It attaches to your debit card, no credit check, no heinous interest rates – easy peasy.
Even if you’re not a cardholder, I have a little treat for you. You can peruse the entire catalog here, right now!
Now, let me tell you about the designer insert. Not everyone got this special 12-page booklet in the front of their catalog – a little birdie told me these picks are virtually guaranteed to sell out during pre-sale, and I couldn’t even get advance photos to show you. But, I can tell you that the standouts from these limited pieces are a fantastic Vince cardigan with leather trim, and two Rag & Bone boots – one of which is the Harlow in black suede, and it’s gorgeous.
You can officially start shopping at midnight tonight (Pacific time), and I’ll be back first thing in the morning with links to all of my favorites. Stay tuned!
Thanks for this post! I never got the catalog so this is very helpful 🙂 Quick question – i remember seeing a stripe-y dress (beige/black stripes, short sleeved – really cute) on the “sneak peek photo shoot” on the Nordstrom page (now changed from the link you posted earlier on a prior blog entry) but couldn’t find a corresponding item in the catalog. I feel like my eyes are playing tricks on me! Is that dress in the 12-page secret booklet? 🙂
Hey DL! You’re right, it is in the secret booklet! It’s by Missoni, it’s $549, and the item number is 677515.
