I love that Nordstrom includes designer items and much more affordable items like their Bp. collection in the sale - it lets those who have been eyeing a specific bag (like the Tory Burch one I linked) get it at a great price and feel less guilt over buying it, and get staple pieces (like flannels and scarves that we ALWAYS need in our closet) for a better price as well!
Why should you shop the Nordstrom anniversary sale? Most of the items are perfect pieces to transition from summer to fall - most sales that happen around this time are from stores getting rid of all their summer items to make room for fall. While that's great because you'll get some pieces you can wear for a month or two and then save until next year, I love shopping ahead of time and getting pieces no one will think of buying yet!
Shop one of the biggest sales of the year NOW - Prices go back up August 8th!
