Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Postby Carrie » Tue Jun 19, 2018 9:25 am

I’m so impatient for the sale this year. I have a trip to Cancun in later July, and I’m hoping to pick up a few summer things for that in addition to fall stuff.

The cardholder access starts 7/12, and I made an appointment with a sales associate for that afternoon (first time I’ve ever done that...).

When does the Look Book come out? That’s different from the catalog, right?

I am excited about it this year too! I have a couple of gift cards I have been holding on to for it!

I will say, I had a fairly poor experience with a sales associate recently. I made an appointment hoping to find something for my daughter's 1st birthday pictures. Everything she pulled was extremely expensive ($348 for a shirt) or completely impractical for holding, chasing, carrying a baby (super short dresses, crop tops, and very delicate lace ruffles). I think maybe we just weren't a good fit. Hopefully you have a better experience. I just warn you that I wouldn't count on them to know what you are looking for on your first visit.

I have no idea about the look book. I will be excited to see it though!

Honestly I hadn't even thought about it until I saw this post. I generally try to refrain from being OVER summer until at least the Fourth of July, but now I'm impatiently waiting for fall. :laughing:

I'm really liking those waterproof boots. I have a suede pair of boots I love but can't wear them half the time because of rain.

Okay, I found SOME things. ;)

Way outside my comfort zone, but kind of fun? https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/louise-et- ... 018-_-null

Purses:
- https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/ted-baker- ... 018-_-null
- https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/kate-spade ... 018-_-null

I have nowhere to wear this, but it's super pretty! https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/eliza-j-fr ... 018-_-null

I have too many that are similar, but I really like these wedge booties: https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/lucky-bran ... 018-_-null

I mean, this is just a gym bag, but I'm a sucker for the blush color: https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/herschel-s ... 018-_-null

I might pick up one or two or three of these: https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/kate-spade ... 018-_-null

Tempted by Ugg slippers, but probably won't pull the trigger: https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/ugg-dakota ... 018-_-null

And as far as actual CLOTHING, lol, I really like this sweater: https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/halogen-pu ... 018-_-null

And this skirt, although the midi length makes me nervous. It can be so, so unflattering - or amazing, depending on the fit: https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/halogen-sk ... 018-_-null

Jennelle, I vote that you need the slippers. I got a pair last Christmas and I’m obsessed. So comfy! I’m just going to live vicariously through everyone else. I picked the worst time to have a baby (being a teacher) as far as benefits go. I made the mistake of doing a target run with P the other night. Let me tell you, shopping is far less enjoyable with your husband behind you, whispering, “you have no job! You don’t get paid until November. . .” :laughing:

Ditto the UGG slippers— I got a pair (sans bow) before my kids were born and they are still in fantastic shape.

Agree that UGG slippers are a worthy investment.

I'm also eyeing that Kate Spade purse specifically in the pink/purple type color.

I got this Natori bra in last year's sale and have worn it darn near every day since. Will definitely be picking up another! https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/natori-ros ... 018-_-null

Loving the Kendra Scott long necklace but I also get my bday discount in July so I may pass: https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/kendra-sco ... 018-_-null

Probably going to ((finally)) pull the trigger on the Ugg slippers.

Absolutely loving the lavender Badgley Mischka long wrap coat... I almost bought a similar one from J Crew last winter. This is a great price for the brand! https://shop.nordstrom.com/s/badgley-mi ... 018-_-null

I know I will get sucked in but I didn't see anything intriguing at this point.

I will say that I have a pair of boots similar to these and they are AMAZING: https://shop.nordstrom.com/catalog#cata ... page/52-53

(The Ugg waterproof wedge bootie - not sure how you to get the link to the specific item)

As you can see by any of my posts in that TPF thread...I am not really excited this year about much. My list is SHORT. Like...SHORT. We have to pay for a LOT of ---- this year, and I really budgeted low.

Right now I’m lusting after that green Ted Baker coat. At $385, it’s definitely spendy for me. I’m hoping the J Crew Olga Boiled Leather Topcoat (cobalt) will also be in store. At half the TB price, I’m hoping I love the JC one more!

OMG it's so pretty. I would look like a damn leprechaun.

I get up at 2am every year to put in "backup orders" for stuff he can't get bec it's not in his store or it sells out before he can put the order in. I return any extra dupes...site is down AGAIN and then just put in 2 of the same damn order. Maybe 10x again!?!

There's only a couple things I want to see in person, assuming my store gets them...Nothing shows as in any of my stores. I am going after work to look at a few things, and hopefully don't go any further overboard.

Also not listed I got some Smartwool socks and two bras.

My items so far:

T3 Curling Iron since my 5 year old one just started smoking!
