Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 Public Access eve is here! Tomorrow morning the sale opens up to the public. I wanted to share with you my top picks. I also have my runner ups from the sale in case you needed some inspiration.
My picks are all on the spendy side, but I really view this sale as an opportunity. At the Anniversary Sale you can pick up some high quality, classic investment pieces. You can also stock up on higher quality basics like denim, bras and undewear.
My Anniversary Sale philosophy is: ‘Yes that $15 tee is really tempting but if I really wanted it I’d splurge for the $25 full price version whenever‘. It’s taken me a few years to get to this mindframe but I really feel like it’s the right move. Those small inconsequential purchases all do add up to roughly the same amount. It’s just like a daily coffee purchase habit. It feels like your spending less and that is really enticing. It’s harder to justify to yourself spending $300 on a jacket than it is spending $300 on a bunch of different items. I’ve been really scouring the hauls on social media. Those affordable hauls more often than not add up to quite a lot.
Why buy 5 pairs of shoes that wear out in one season? And that you discover hurt after 1 month? Instead get that one awesome pair that lasts 10 years and fit like a glove. Instead of buying it 4-6 tops, considering just getting one really great pair of jeans or a great coat. That is so much better for the environment and your wallet. You will be way better dressed for it too!
Another thing… If your wishlist items end up being sold out, don’t buy something you sort of like just as a consolation prize. You don’t have to get something from this sale. There are tons of sales throughout the year and lots of opportunities to get all of the above items I’ve mentioned. I will do my best to let you know whenever these opportunites pop up!
One more thing I wanted to mention is that my #1 item, the Smythe Birkin Blazer is a Canadian exclusive. ** AMERICANS! You can now buy the Smythe Blazers on sale too! Find them here! American’s are my highest readership so many of you may be disapointed that you can’t find the same Smythe Birkin Blazer marked down. Here is the landing page for it in case you wanted to see profuct info for it. I’m really excited that it’s made in Canada! I actually didn’t buy it yesterday and then I really regretted it so I went today to pick it up. I will be returning a few items to make room for it. Instead of this blazer you could consider the Veronica Beard (a few sizes restocked) , L’Agence (3 sizes in stock), Theory (all sizes) or Rag & Bone (all sizes available).
Happy Shopping!! Let us know in the comments what you are ordering! Or if you have any questions. This community is so amazing for crowdsourcing.
