Tips for Shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

I'm sure your news feeds are already full of pre-sale pictures and blog posts, but I am only going to add to it! Sorry, not sorry.

The Nordstrom Anniversary sale is known for offering amazing deals on not only items that didn't sell over summer, but closet staples like the BlankNYC moto jacket and the cutest Vince Camuto booties.

The Anniversary Sale is the perfect opportunity to stock up on your fall wardrobe and other classic pieces like leggings, handbags, denim and so much more!

This is only my second year shopping the sale and I am much more prepared this time around. I put together a little guide to help newbies like myself get the best deals and invest in the right pieces.

get an early start

The hottest items tend to sell out quickly, so it's important to get early access. All you have to do is sign up to be a Nordstrom Card Holder. I got mine about two months ago in preparation for the sale and I'm so glad I did it! But don't worry, if you haven't signed up yet you can still shop the sale early if you're approved. Nordstrom doesn't require you to have the card in-hand to shop. You can apply for a Nordstrom Credit Card here

plan out your buys

The best way to plan out what you want to buy is to browse through the Anniversary Catalog. Like I said, items sell out quickly and there are rarely restocks. It's important to have an idea of what you want to get so you're not wasting time looking through all of the pages while the sale is going on. Make a list of all the pieces you want, then narrow it down based on budget and necessity. A few things I have my eye on are the suede BlankNYC mini, the Vince Camuto Francia booties and the Halogen cashmere cardigan.

shop online

Unfortunately for me, I don't have a Nordstrom near me. But that doesn't stop me from getting all the deals. And the best part about shopping online is you can do it in your pj's, cuddled up in your bed. Nordstrom also offers free shipping and returns!
