Well, friends – it’s that time! Early Access (ie, for Nordstrom cardholders) to the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts right now! And though I’m a rare bird around here these days, I couldn’t dream of shopping the #NSale without you. And so! My Photoshop skillz may have faded, but my notoriously picky eye for bargains has not. So, please forgive my snooze-worthy autobot collage and just dive right on into my picks.
As usual, the jackets are fantastic – I went in looking for statement layers to up my jeans-and-tees game, and made out like a bandit (see below). Once again, bags are lackluster, but your perennial fave Longchamp expandable Le Pliage tote is back. No Burberry trench this year, but there are some much more fashion-forward options from Burberry in its place. A few new excellent bras were added to the #NSale roster, but none of my favorite undies made the cut (sob!). And shoes…there are boots galore, the usual staples from AGL and Aquatalia, and more than a few slip-on sneakers that are well worth snagging at #NSale prices.
On top of these goodies, of course, I’ll be doing my annual stock-up on Smartwool socks, Hanky Panky thongs, Nordstrom’s awesome fragrance-free lingerie wash (and yeah, probably a new wash bag while I’m at it), and Zella yoga pants, which thankfully seem to be back to normal after last year’s icky fabric debacle.
What am I skipping? Shoes, for the most part – this one was a disappointment, as I really came to play this year. But other than those Blondo booties and a pair of Nike slip-ons, I mostly struck out on shoes this year. And, with the notable exception of that yummy Nordstrom Signature cashmere and the Vince elbow-sleeve tunic, no sweaters were really making my heart sing. I’m skipping denim this year due to a serious overstocking problem…well, except for a pair of those deep olive Rag & Bone Dre jeans, which are too perfect to pass up.
What about you, friends? What couldn’t you resist? I’m dying to see what you’ve found so far!
