It’s that time of year again! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has arrived!! The sale preview launched on Tuesday, and I’ve spent the last two days combing through everything that’s part of this year’s sale. While I’ll be doing a few blog posts on the Anniversary Sale this month, I figured it would be helpful to have a comprehensive blog post you can refer back to! Today’s post features my past favorites that are part of the sale again + the very best new items I saw in the preview. Bookmark this page so can refer back to it when you’re shopping the sale during Early Access (next week if you’re a cardmember!) or when it opens to the public on July 28th.
Next week I’ll be sharing a dedicated blog post on the best under $100 finds in the Anniversary Sale, and I’ll also be launching my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Capsule Wardrobe!!! Stay tuned!
MY TRIED & TRUE #NSALE FAVES
All of the pieces in the above collage are items I use regularly and love! Some I found during a previous #NSALE, while others I’ve purchased on other occasions that just so happen to be part of the sale this year. See below for a bulleted list with a description of each and a link to shop/add to your wish list!
- I bought this pair of skinny jeans in a dark wash during last year’s sale and wore them almost every day during the fall/winter season! They are super comfortable and flattering, and a great price during the Anniversary Sale! True to size.
- If you’re looking for a quality faux leather legging, don’t miss this SPANX pair! They’re SPANX, so they suck you in and look amazing on. They’re a great style for wearing casually with sneakers, or dressing up with boots! I wear a medium.
- I’ve become a collector of the simple crewneck cashmere sweaters Vince does every year for this sale! I have three now, and I don’t plan on stopping. They’re such high-quality staples that I wear all fall/winter once the temps drop. The crewneck neckline is great with any jacket or coat! I wear a medium. The ones I have are black, camel and grey, so this year I’m planning to pick up the “cream” and “caribou” colors!
- Last year I bought Nordstrom’s faux fur blanket and I’ve used it on the couch every night since! It sold out and never came back in stock last year, so hopefully they have more stock this time around. Highly recommend! I should note it did shed before I washed it, so I’d definitely suggest washing it before use! I’m planning to get a second one since I have two sofas at the new house and want my blankets to match!
- I have this hand wash in my bathroom and the half bath for guests to use – it’s the best fragrance! In addition to the jumbo sized wash that’s on sale, Jo Malone is doing a Cologne + Hand Wash Set in the same scent!
- I bought these studs last year and have really loved them! They’re a simple and understated everyday style. Perfect for casual wear, work, travel, etc!
- I’ve talked about neuLASH for years, but if you’re new here it’s a miracle product!! I apply it to my lash line every night before bed and it has been a game changer for the length and volume of my eyelashes. I’ve been using neuLASH since 2013, which is a solid review all by itself! During this year’s sale, get two tubes for the price of one!
- Diptyque is another of my favorite brands that I’ve been buying for years! It’s a great go-to of mine for gifts, especially for their candles. This travel-sized votive set is part of the sale again!
- If you’re looking for a supportive bra for running or HIIT workouts, this is one of my favorite styles! I have it in a number of colors now. I ordered a new one last year and found they ran smaller, so definitely size up!
- As far as beauty goes, I’ve been using Laura Mercier’s translucent powder (along with the powder puff!) for years! I first got turned onto the stuff during a collaboration back in 2014, and I’ve used it ever since. During the Anniversary Sale, get a full-size and a travel-size of the translucent powder + the powder puff for $49! Outside of the sale, a full-sized powder and the velour puff is $55.
- As a large chested lady, I often get asked about what my favorite strapless bras are! I got fitted several years back at Nordstrom and ended up with the Wacoal Red Carpet bra. It’s amazing and I’ve been using that same style ever since. This bra is originally $68, but during the #NSALE get is for only $39.90! PRO TIP: size up a full cup size when buying strapless bras – this keeps you from having any overflow/unevenness!
- Last but not least, my favorite discovery of 2020: the Spanx Breast of Both Worlds Reversible Wireless Bra! This bra is the ultimate lounge + sleep bra. Super soft, super comfortable – it’s perfect if you don’t love to be completely braless and enjoy a little support. I now have five of them!! This bra is originally $42, but get it for only $27.90 during the Anniversary Sale! I wear a large.
PS: I couldn’t fit it in the collage, but definitely don’t miss Hanky Panky’s Retro High Rise Thongs!!! I’m obsessed. They’re great for wearing with anything high-waisted and they keep everything looking smooth. They’re originally $23, but get them for $16.90 during the sale!
