Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access Starts Now
…and if you can’t wait to see what I picked, keep scrolling. There are several categories including my must-haves and favorite blue tops (lots of stuff under $50 on this list!). Tips on the sale in general are all the way down, too.
If you’ve got a minute, humor me. Growing up, I remember going to Perimeter Mall in Atlanta every Saturday (or as many Saturdays as I could reasonably convince my parents was appropriate, given I was in my early teens). We always parked by the Nordstrom and I always headed straight for the shoes. I would invariably make my way over to the purses and wistfully dream about the designer bags. By some stroke of luck and I’m sure endless nagging, one Saturday I actually convinced my parents to buy me the ultimate it bag of 1999, the Kate Spade Sam tote in black nylon. A couple of years ago I saw a Bustle article which mentioned that the bags are now selling on eBay for $40 (I don’t remember what they cost at the time, truth be told). I even brought the bag in to Spanx so the girls on my team could see what the fuss was all about as they were a bit too young to remember the purse (which made me feel ancient, btw). Isn’t it funny to think back on the “it” items of yesteryear. I always try to shop with forever in mind, so my picks, even if trendy, are styles that I envision fitting in with my always-evolving-but-pretty-clear aesthetic.
So, here they are…my favorites from the #Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, the same sale that my mom has shopped (with early access) for over a decade. I just opened a Nordstrom Card so that I, too, can get early access (game. changer.). And, I plan to order everything online and pick it up in store so I can try it on and let you know how it all works IRL. Happy shopping and stay tuned for more posts on the Anniversary sale!
