These pictures have nothing to do with the topic at hand today, but I thought they were cute pictures so I had to get them in somewhere. LOL. These pictures were taken at Bunnie Cakes, a vegan bakery in Miami where I had the best vegan cupcakes and doughnuts!
Alright, so let’s talk the Nordstrom Sale– are you all going to be shopping it? I know it seems like overkill every year when people talk about it non-stop, but it really is a good sale and I will probably get a few things from it. My general consensus of the sale is that it’s good for basics and fall staples. I always end up getting a few things the first day of the sale and then I will get FOMO from seeing everyone with other stuff and inevitably, I end up ordering more (some items are always sold out).
The basics of the Nordstrom Sale are simple: it’s new fall merchandise that is discounted for this sale. After the duration of the sale, the prices go back up. “Early Access” starts the 12th of July and that is ONLY for people with a Nordstrom Credit or Debit card. It’s not too late to get one if you just have to shop the sale early, you can get one here. “Public Access” starts July 20th and that is when anyone and everyone can shop with any sort of payment method they wish to use. Here’s a handy dandy little calendar that lays it all out for you:
Shopping Online vs. In Store
Last year I shopped exclusively online and I was able to get pretty much everything that I wanted from the sale. Things will sell out but if you keep checking back they restock several times throughout the sale so your chances of getting something that sold out initially are high. I was able to shop the sale in store towards the end of the sale last year, and there were still A LOT of the items available. I think by that time people had already made a ton of returns so there were some good items available. Personally, I’d just order what all you need online and then if there’s something you couldn’t get online, check the store to see if you can find it there.
Things I Want
Just doing a quick look-see with the online preview catalog, here are some items that I have my eye on for the sale. Like I said, I normally stock up on fall basics including booties, boots, jackets, and sweaters. It sucks having to wait months and months to wear these items, but I was glad last year when October rolled around and I already had fall items. Here are a couple of items that caught my eye:
Bow Floral Dress | Stuart Weitzman Boots | Marc Fisher Boots | Vince Camuto Boots | GloPro Microneedling Set | Le Labo Perfume Set | Diptyque Candle Set
As you can see, I want a lot of boots and booties (no surprise) and some of the beauty stuff. I think a lot of things aren’t that cheap, like the J.Crew blazers are around $140 and I feel like you could get them at J.Crew during a sale for cheaper than that. Anyways, what will you all be buying?
