10 Best Buys Every Year
Every year there are things that are worth buying and things that are not. Below are 10 things that year after year I find are worth purchasing in the sale. Most of them are things I am going to buy anyway so why not purchase for up to 40% off?
2. Designer Jeans – You don’t want to miss out on the incredible prices on the best denim brands. Paige, FRAME, and Citizen of Humanity just to name a few. Loving these Rag & Bone jeans for fall. Tip: order a few sizes and send back what doesn’t work to avoid missing a great deal.
3. Popular Winter Coats and Fleeces – I don’t like paying full-price for these brands so love when I find them in the Nordstrom sale! Brands like Barbour and Patagonia usually sell quickly. This quilted coat is back and this down parka will surely sell out fast. The North Face has lots of coats for children this year and Patagonia will be in the sale as well.
6. Fall Sweaters – The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale always has great on-trend and investment sweaters. Yes, it’s odd to shop for fall clothes in July but so worth it! I get so much wear out of the tops and sweaters I buy in the sale each year. Look at lines like Vince and Nordstrom Signature cashmere for high end. This Free People sweater will be popular! Love this easy Halogen throw-on cashmere sweater.
7. Handbags and Accessories – I love this Tory Burch croc crossbody and this wallet in the sale this year! They also included a new black chain crossbody in the sale! This Michele watch would make a fabulous Christmas gift!
8. Hair and Makeup Value Sets – The special edition value sets that are part of the sale really are always an amazing value. Like this Bobbi Brown lip set (great holiday gift!) or this MAC eye set. This Living Proof set and this Oribe set will likely sell out fast. And yay, the Olaplex Shampoo I like is included in an awesome value set.
9. Barefoot Dreams – My favorite cardigan that I even wear in the summer in my cold house is part of the sale! It usually sells out during Early Access so this is an item to shop early if you want one. They make a great gift for just about any female. As does the cozy throw which also sells out!
10. High-End Undergarments and Loungewear – Every year my favorite bra ever is on sale during the sale. (Note: I am small chested and go up two cup sizes on this bra.) Bras are expensive, but we need them so why not buy on sale up to 40% off? It’s also a great time to stock up on panties. I bought these one size fits all panties last year and I am hooked. They don’t show lines! Last year I picked up these Nordstrom brand pajamas and they have become some of my favorites! They come in a long set and short set. I will definitely pick up another pair and maybe a few to gift as well!
