editor’s picks: nordstrom anniversary sale 2017

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

sneak peek: 2017 nordstrom anniversary sale catalog + early access!

It’s been absolutely ages, friends – I’ve missed the bejeezus out of you! But I couldn’t let our favorite time of year – the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – go by without notice, now could I?

So! Here’s what I know so far about the 2017 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale:

Presale begins July 13 for all Nordstrom cardholders (if you’re a fancy Level 4 cardholder, you can shop July 12, in store only). Typically, that means that you can shop online as of 12:01 AM, PDT, on July 13.

The Sale opens to the general public on July 21, again at 12:01 AM. And the Sale ends (meaning prices go back up to regular retail!) on August 6. For more deets on the hows and whys, I’ve spelled it all out right here.

The goods: If you’re itching for an early peek at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog (direct links to the catalog are in teeny tiny print on the left sidebar of that page), you know I’ve got your back! And PS: when you take a look through and start to worry that you haven’t found enough goods to thoroughly burn through your retirement savings, don’t fret: for the last few years, the catalog has been lackluster, but the goods that weren’t in the catalog end up being the highlights. So, have faith!

I haven’t quite worked out whether I’ll do my usual “Editor’s Picks” story this year, or whether I’ll share my faves on social media instead. The mystery! The intrigue! The indecision! Just watch this space…I solemnly swear you’ll be the first to know just as soon as I have favorites to report. In the meantime, what are you hoping to find in your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale stocking this year? New denim? Boots? Or are you excited to stock up on old faves, like Hanky Panky thongs and Zella leggings? Tell me all your hopes and dreams (you know, shopping-wise), and I’ll be on the lookout! Me? I’m hoping for a super-chic statement jacket to up my tired tee-and-jeans game. And though I have more ankle boots than any person needs, I’d dearly love to find a pair I can actually walk in.
