In case you did not hear Nordstrom is having an anniversary sale.

Here are the dates:

  • Icons – Access to sale starting 8/4
  • Ambassadors – Access to sale starting 8/7
  • Influencers – Access to sale starting 8/10
  • Insiders – Access to sale starting 8/13
  • Non Card members – Access to sale starting 8/18

Honestly, I do not know what any of that means. I shop Nordstrom 1-2 times per year, and really only the card so get early access to the sale. I am an insider, so do not have much have a head start (8/13). I am an Amazon girl, but I will share what I bought last year and what I plan to buy this year.

If you want a sneak peak, check out the early access preview here

What I bought Last Year:

KUT FROM THE KLOTH Donna High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans, Main, color, CIVIC

KUT FROM THE KLOTH High Waist Skinny Jeans. These are really good skinny jeans and great basic to own. Fit is true to size.

ASTR THE LABEL Lace Midi Dress, Main, color, PERIWINKLE

ASTR Lace Midi Dress. This is not part of the sale this year, and sizes are minimal, but it is up to 60% off. It runs super small, so keep that in mind (size up 1-2 sizes). I purchased this in green and wore it to my sister in laws wedding. Amazon has a great look for less that I will share!

SPANX<SUP>®</SUP> Higher Power Shaper Panties, Main, color, SOFT NUDE

Spanx Shaper Panties. These aren’t showing as part of the sale right now, but maybe they will be added. All girls need a good pair of Spanx, even though I end up taking them off in the bathroom within an hour of wearing

SPANX<SUP>®</SUP> Power Shorts, Main, color, SOFT NUDE

Spanx Shorts. Just stocking up on my shape wear. These are also not showing up in the same preview, but maybe they will added.

SUPERGOOP!<SUP>®</SUP> Supergoop! Full Size Play Antioxidant Body Mist SPF 50 Sunscreen, Main, color, NO COLOR

Supergoop Sunscreen 3 pack. This is hands down my favorite sunscreen. Anytime there is a sale, I stock up. I will be buying this again this year.

ZELLA Live In High Waist Leggings, Main, color, BLACK

Zella High Waist leggings. These are such good quality leggings. They are nice and thick with good compression. I wear these as pants, and not to yoga. Last year I bought 2 pairs. These run true to size.


I also got this purse. It is no longer available…but I wanted to share anyways.

What I plan to buy This Year:

This year I plan on stocking up on my favorite beauty buys….and maybe some fun boots.

TOO FACED Plump Lips & Sexy Lashes Duo, Main, color, NO COLOR

My favorite mascara! Of course I am going after this set that also includes a lip plumper

URBAN DECAY All Nighter Long Lasting Makeup Setting Spray Duo, Main, color, NO COLOR

My favorite setting spray. Comes with a travel size which is great to have if I am ever able to take a plane trip again

SUPERGOOP!<SUP>®</SUP> Supergoop! Full Size Play Antioxidant Body Mist SPF 50 Sunscreen, Main, color, NO COLOR

I mentioed this above, but hands down the best sunscreen. I have bottles all over the house….so why not 3 more.

DRYBAR Jumbo Size Detox Original Scent Dry Shampoo, Main, color, NO COLOR

I hate washing my hair, but still have not found my favorite dry shampoo. I am thinking about trying this one.

TULA SKINCARE Ready, Set, Glow No Filter Skin Care Set, Main, color, NONE

Everyone loves Tula. I have only tried a couple products, but really have likes the ones I have tried. This is a fun set to ease into the brand to see if you really like it. I love the rose balm, so may get this set to try out

KARL LAGERFELD PARIS Pola Studded Chelsea Bootie, Main, color, BLACK LEATHER

And I may buy these fun boots. They have Gucci vibes but are a fraction of the cost. I am just worried i may not be able to pull them off

Since I am not planning on buying clothes from the sale….and I believe Amazon still has better deals, I will be sharing Amazon options for some of the popular Nordstrom sale items. Check out my running list of looks for less HERE!
