My 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

To be honest, I was initially not feeling the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog this year. Actually, I was very disappointed with the selection. Luckily, I happened to be at the mall last night, when the Level 4 Early Access was happening. I got to shop around and found the actual sale is way better than the few items they listed in the catalog! I ended up going to sleep at 3:00am looking through everything online. Here are some of my purchases and picks:


  1. Truth & Pride Leopard Bomber Jacket $119.90- I picked up this piece at the mall. Leopard is pretty much a neutral, and I really love the sporty twist that the collar gives the jacket.
  2. Burberry Leather Jacket $1,299.90- This is such a great deal for the other “it” leather jacket style that usually never goes on sale.
  3. Sea Peplum Top $216.90- After my first Sea NY piece this spring, I’ve completely fallen in love with this brand. The details and craftsmanship is amazing for the price.
  4. Socialite Cross Tee $21.90 – I’m always looking for great t-shirts. This one is budget friendly and has a sexy little neckline.
  5. Adidas Crop Hoodie $47.90 – This sweatshirt will for sure sell out!
  6. BLACKNYC Suede Jacket $124.90- Nice fall moto jacket. I think these sold out super fast last year.
  7. Nike Sports Bra $29.90 – I mean it’s Nike Sports Bra… Stock up!
  8. ASTR sweater $47.90 – Perfect transition piece for the in between seasons.
  9. Frame Bowtie Blouse $176.90 – Two shirts in one. You can take off the bowtie for a more classic shirt.
  10. Topshop Skinny Jeans $46.90 – Petite friendly jeans in classic color on sale… Stock up!
  11. Frame Skinny Jeans $145.90 – I’ve heard a lot of great things about this brand. However, I’ve never tried their jeans because they are rarely ever on sale. What better opportunity than now to try them!
  12. Frame Straigh Jeans $163.90 – Here with the very “on trend”: staggered hem! The effect will probably be lost on my short legs, but anyone of normal height will rock the hell out of them.
  13. Zella Crop Leggings $33.90 – I tried them during the last anniversary sale and totally fell in love with them. The quality and fit is on point! Stock up!
  14. Adidas Leggings $25.90- Another classic and comfy piece that will get a lot of usage. This will definitely sell out too!
  15. SPANX Shaper $27.90 or 3 for $75 – Bought the shorts version from the last anniversary sale, and I have been addicted to them. There’s a reason why Kim Kardashian is also a fan. Stock up!!!
  16. Stuart Weitzman Boots $499.90 – These are going to be the boots to wear every day this fall and winter.
  17. Alexander Wang Pumps $318.90 – I’ve always been an Alexander Wang fan. These pumps look classic and normal at first, but they wear so differently than they seem.
  18. Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers $59.90 – These shoes are impossible to find at normal price, let alone on sale! The small sizes will sell out soon!
  19. Ted Baker Makeup Bag $26.60 – I just thought it’s the cutest thing.
  20. Sunnylife Flamingo Float $49.90 – We can all use a rose gold flamingo in our lives.
  21. Topshop Coat $85.90 – Almost forgot this pretty, yet not too girly coat that’s in one of my favorite colors, dusty pink.


And I was being PICKY with this list! I definitely recommend browsing the sale this year. Some items on my original wish list have already sold out, so I would get over to Nordstrom and start shopping as soon as you can!
