For those of you who’ve been (not so) patiently sitting on your hands, listening to all of us yammering on about the things that are sold out and the packages that are arriving, it’s here! Early Access is finally over, and the 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially ON, which means you can shop whether you have that pesky Nordstrom card or not.
And about all of that sold-out business….fret not, my friends! First of all, Nordstrom holds back quite a bit of merchandise from the Early Access nuts (*cough*) for this very day – because, let’s face it, if you only got to shop the deserted racks I saw at the store yesterday, there’d be some kind of uprising. Second of all, things get returned, items get replenished by vendors…so if something you love is sold out, just keep checking the site. I can all but guarantee it’ll reappear. Heck, I’m personally returning enough things to restock the entire website. (No, seriously – somehow I ended up with FOUR pair of those Aquatalia boots.)
Before you go getting overwhelmed (there’s a lot to sort through), all of my picks are right here and I’m updating my Shop SMC page with bonus picks every day! But for now, let me just say that the $50 Halogen cardigan is pretty dang great, as are the Rag & Bone Dre jeans on sale. And I’m watching my UPS tracking pretty closely on this Lafayette 148 jacket, because casual layers are so dang hard to get right, and are something my closet desperately needs these days. I’ll report back.
