I normally don’t blog the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale until it opens to the general public — but this year, with the 8-day head start for Rewards card members, I wonder if anything is going to be left! (Plus, as I found out yesterday, it’s super easy to apply for/get a Rewards card, and there’s no real reason to wait to do it. No annual fee, either.) So I thought I’d pick some favorites from the sale NOW. If you’re not familiar with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, this is a sale on NEW merchandise, not old leftovers from last season. Prices will go back up to normal prices on August 4, when the sale ends. Please note that you can only purchase (or see) these sale items if you have a Rewards credit/debit card and you are logged in to your account. Without further ado…
Bags: I’m seeing good representation from Brahmin, Kate Spade, Longchamp (including numerous colors for the expandable Pliage tote), Marc by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors (including the reader favorite, the Jet Set line of totes), Rebecca Minkoff (including a ton of basic black bags and reader favorite M.A.B. tote), Tory Burch and Vince Camuto
Shoes: There’s a ton of great choices from Stuart Weitzman! There is also a good selection from a number of brands in our Guide to Comfortable Heels, including Attilio Giusti Leombruni, Børn, Cole Haan, Enzo Angiolini, Ivanka Trump, and Tory Burch.
Lingerie: There’s a good selection from Chantelle, Commando, Hanky Panky, Natori, reader favorite Shimera camisoles, Spanx, Wacoal, and Yummie by Heather Thomson. There are also some online-only deals like a 6-pack of Cosabella thongs for $80 (normally $120).
Anyway — here are a few specific choices — if you hover over the item you’ll get details like brand, price, etc. They’re in order of least expensive (at $32) to most expensive (at, er, $839). [Read more...]
