Because of the glitch last night with orders, anything ordered yesterday and today is 10x the points!
The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Is Here! Early Access is Live! Can you believe I’ve been blogging this sale for 6 years now? I’m an OG Anniversary Sale Blogger!! I remember shopping the sale with my sister back in 2012 on a weekend trip to Seattle and leaving our kids home for our first overnight away from them. That was my second year shopping the sale, first one blogging it. We watched the Katy Perry movie that evening after our long day of shopping (it’s all that was playing). I can’t even remember what I purchased or find my blog posts since I re-branded my blog (here is an NSALE post from 2014!), but it was such a blast. I know my sister got Frye boots that year though. That’s what I love so much about this sale is that it’s truly an event.
If you have a Nordstrom Rewards Card, Nordstrom Debit or Credit Card you now have access to shop the sale. If you are not shopping the early access, public access starts on July 20. In the meantime, you can plan your shopping cart now by seeing whats available, and what people are loving. I hope to have try-ons for you on Saturday or Sunday. If you’ve made it to the store and want to share your first impressions, let us know what you’ve tried on. I’m trying really hard to stick with my Classic Style list.
What I Ordered From The 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
Ordering last night was just insane! I was up until 3 am blogging, and attempting to place my order. The Nordstrom website is experiencing glitches and my shopping cart kept bumping me out. Eventually, I was able to place my order late last night but it’s still processing. I decided to order the blazer. It’s a pricey investment piece but fits in my closet staples list. I ordered the Rag&Bone black jeans but now I sort of wish I had ordered my favorite pair of AG jeans – there are now only 4 sizes left so probably will be fully sold out shortly. I’ll hopefully get to try both on Saturday or Sunda and exchange for my preferred pair. I’m not 100% certain on the shoes but I knew they’d be hot sellers and I wanted to try them on at least. I’ve been wanting a pair of white dressy sneakers.
*(boo! This second order just canceled on me. Just the shirt sold out but the entire order was canceled. Had to reorder the jeans but yesterday was 10x points.)
Swayed by the 10x points yesterday. Not sure what I’m keeping from my purchases yet. I will only keep one pair of jeans, and then I need to decide between the shoes, and the rails shirt. I’m not sure if I’m going to love the shoes in person when I see them, but wanted to try them out.
♥Try-Ons Comming Soon!♥
Recommending From Previous Years Purchases Or Try Ons
These items are all huge winners in my closet and have stood the test of time.
So so tempted to get another Barefoot Dreams cardi since it’s the exact style I like in colors I love. I also really want the AG Jeans here. I ordered the black Rag & Bone Jeans last night, but now I’m second-guessing.
Higher price point, but quality timeless items.
I always look at investment pieces and try to get one each year. I’m loving the Stuart Weitzman OTK boots. I didn’t anticipate such an amazing pair on the sale. Too bad my calves are too wide for these. There is another pair of great black leather boots by Tory Burch shown below that come in an extended calf size, and regular. The price on those is unbeatable.

How amazing is this dupe! This is not the same coat, but such a nod to the Meghan Markle Burberry Coat. Meghan wears a ton of Mackage so I love that they made this.
This pink blazer looks a lot like the one I just got which I shared in this post the other day. Same cut, similar color.
Great purchases for under $100.
These are all really great items at amazing price points. Easy on the budget but not lacking in quality or style.

I’m so excited to see Sweaty Betty and Varley. This year definitely has more variety in this department.

Grab These Before They Are Gone
These AG Jeans that I regrettably did not order are now sold out in my size and several other sizes. I picked up the AG Farrah instead (full size run currently) and I think I’m actually happier trying a new style – they are a darker wash, higher rise and look a bit dressier. I predicted both the jeans and Le Pliage being sell outs.
