The day has come for the Nordstrom cult, Early Access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017. What’s so special about this sale? It’s the first time Fall + Winter 2017 items are hitting the market and they are majorly discounted for a brief window before going up to full-price. Early Access starts today and if you’re not already a card-holder, you can apply here, get accepted in minutes and start shopping. A lot of the good stuff goes fast so if you’re on the fence, apply today, get in, and you’ll have to call but you’ll be able to shop!
I had the distinct pleasure of previewing the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 yesterday at The Westchester and can’t tell you how many amazing finds there are to be had. Ohh My Goodness, DIE. I wanted to call each of you on the phone and be like, “guys you need this, no, this! no, that!!”. Just so you know, for the past week, I’ve been scouring the line sheets and have been fine-tuning my picks and tried EVERYTHING on to pick out the very best of the sale. SO if you like my taste, shop my picks as a starting point 🙂
I’m starting with what I think are the “must-haves”, the things if you’re going to shop limited, you should get. The discount is too great to pass up, and come fall, you’ll be wishing you snagged these items now.
The Burberry Pencham Coat | Okay, so when I saw this coat on the hanger which was like under lock & key I thought it was way to pretentious for me. Honestly, I’m not trying to prove anything by wearing a Burberry coat, HOWEVER, it is beautiful in person and I kind of fell in love with it. It really is special and if you have the budget for a staple quilted coat, this is it.
Kate Spade Tassel Sneaker | Need I say more? Tassel + Sneaker in one?? Never seen before, yes please!
Dash & Albert Geo Print Rug | I’ve had this rug in my office since we moved in and I’ve never gotten more questions or compliments on anything in our home!! It’s so pretty, made from 100% real wool, and super soft. I love this rug, it added all the warmth to the space and transformed it from a cold uninviting space into one my kids don’t want to leave! *I will warn you it does shed in the beginning but after a few vacuum cleanings, you’re good to go. That is normal for natural wool rugs, I’ll take that over VOC’s 🙂
Madewell Military Coat | This is AMAZE. Military coats are so versatile, I wore an oldie from Target for the longest time, but am so happy to upgrade to this stunner for the season. It’s under $100 and you’ll wear it every.single.day.
Barbour Quilted Vest | Sorry to bombard you with all the fall outerwear BUT these are sophisticated staples at such a major discount I would be doing a disservice not to mention. Another one, like the Burberry, that I was like, too preppy for me, nope. Until I tried it on. GORG. ‘
These AG skinny ankle jeans are the only pair of jeans you’ll need all season. On trend, perfect fit, versatile, and on major discount. The AG jeans from the last Nordy’s sale were one my best sellers all year.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 is quickly approaching and it is hands down the best sale of the year. All of the latest fall and winter trends, many of which will not be released until the sale starts, will be on major sale for a brief window before going back up to full price, so it’s a great time to get your hands on essentials that will take you through the year. Unlike other sales that are usually liquidating past season’s inventory, the Anniversary Sale is special and probably the biggest sale of the year among retailers because it is all newly released items.
The sale starts July 21st and runs through August 6th. If you’re a Nordstrom cardholder however you can shop early access which begins this Thursday, July 13th. If you don’t have a Nordstrom card, you can apply for one here, and if you’re approved you’ll be shopping early access with all of us! It is one of the fastest selling sales so if you’ve got that card, use it because items will be going. If you haven’t already seen it, you can download the newly released sale catalog including all of the pieces that will be marked down:
The easiest way in my opinion to shop the sale is early and online. I personally can’t deal with shopping sales in person (people can be so nasty!) and with nordstrom’s quick shipping and easy return policy, online is the way to go. Also, if you live near a Nordstrom, you can shop online and pick up all your items packaged and ready-to-go. Some stores even offer curb-side pick up!
Here is how I’ll be helping you:
On Thursday morning, as soon as you wake up, I’ll have a list of all the staples I think are worth investing in right here on the blog. I’ll have separate sections (clothes, shoes, kids, outerwear) with links for easy shopping, and will be following up throughout the sale to let you know what’s still in stock, as well as my personal reviews of the pieces. I’ll be doing lots of live try-on sessions on my instagram account so you can see the pieces on me and then judge whether or not you want them. All the information will be accessible under the Nordstom Anniversary Sale tab for quick access.
