Best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Buys

The Nordstrom Anniversary makes new-for-fall items available at big discounts. What makes this sale unique is Nordstrom’s wide range of brands that become eligible for discount. The sale is a cool opportunity to grab items you actually need or have long wanted at amazing prices.


If you need a new coat for fall, the offerings in the sale will get you together. I’m partial to the red J.Crew coat shown above. That coat (available in a few other colors) is going to be marked down to $184.90 (orig. $278) during the sale.


Nordstrom carries the best selection of boots. Getting those boots at discounted prices is a sweet deal. I just retired a pair of ankle boots, so I have my eye on the Blondo bootie in burgundy. It will be marked down to $99 (orig. $149.95).

Luxury Watches

A watch is so much more than just a timepiece. It’s also the accessory you get to wear every day. So, get the watch of your dreams. I’m a Movado gal, but you might favor Michele. Whatever the case, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the best time to get the watch you really want. I’ve been rocking my Movado EVERYDAY since getting it in the 2015 sale.


If you spend a lot of time in the gym, you might as well look and feel good while you’re there. And, good activewear makes that happen. I became a super fan of Zella leggings after getting a pair in a past sale. So, I plan to grab a couple pairs this year. They’re going to be marked down to $38.90 (orig. 59). No matter your activewear needs, Nordstrom will probably have one of your essentials on sale.

Contemporary Designers

If you’ve been admiring a contemporary brand but hesitant to splurge, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale might be the encouragement you need. Nordstrom has an extensive collection of designers, and they are included in the sale. I’ve been admiring the modern, relaxed silhouettes of Tibi, so I plan to explore the discounted Tibi items in the sale.


Hands down. My best bra fitting was at Nordstrom. What made the experience special was the opportunity to explore the fit of so many brands. My fitter and I quickly noticed that Natori bras were made for me. Natori bras are pricey, though, y’all. I need a couple replacement bras, but the boobies will be waiting for the Anniversary Sale because Natori bra will be marked down to as low as under $30 (orig. $70).
