Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Product Review: Part 1

Phew!  What an exhausting day I had yesterday – but a great one!  I think I got so many good deals and so many great items for fall!  I wanted to make sure I got my reviews up as quickly as possible for you guys!  Items are already starting to sell out, and I want to make sure you have a chance to grab what you want!  I’ll hopefully answer all of your questions within this post, but if you have a question on something, make sure to leave a comment!  
Sidenote: I am wearing some items that are not a part of the sale.  If that’s the case, I made sure to point that out and link similar items to what I am wearing that are on sale!  
Let’s get started!
Review: I am obsessed with the color of this dress!  It automatically has a larger, flowy fit to it.  I ended up getting a size Medium, only to get a little bit more length (I’m 5’10”).  In the side picture, you can see that the back is a little bit longer.  Comes in ten different colors!
Price: $31.90, marked down from $48.00
Review:  If you’re going to buy one thing during this sale, it should be these booties!  They are super comfortable and the neutral color will go with absolutely everything this fall!  I found that they ran true to size.
Price: $99.90, marked down from $159.95
Review:  I am in love with this blouse!  I tried on a similar top before the sale started, and I wanted to love it, but couldn’t because I felt like I had to keep pulling it up.  That made me a little nervous when trying this top on.  To my surprise, I didn’t have to worry about this top falling down at all!  It comes in three colors, and I had a really hard time deciding between the black and red color.  This would be so fun to wear for a night out on the town or for a date night!  I’m wearing a size medium.
Price: $31.90, marked down from $48.00
Note:  These are not the jeans I am wearing in the pictures above (exact jeans here).  However, I wanted to include them because they are the same brand and have a very similar look to them.  The distressing is almost identical, but the wash is a little bit different.
Price: $58.90, marked down from $88.00

Review:  This shirt is a great staple to have!  It’s perfect for layering in the fall, and it looks great by itself!  Unfortunately, I didn’t get this post up in time because this color combo is sold out!  It is still available in another color.  Let’s cross our fingers that it gets restocked!  I’m wearing a size small.  
Price: $40.90, marked down from $62.00
Note:  These are not the jeans I am wearing in the pictures above (exact jeans here).  There are so many great denim options available during this sale!  The denim I am wearing above is my absolute favorite, but if I needed a few more pairs I would definitely grab this one!  Similar wash and distressing to what I am wearing.
Price: $65.90, marked down from $99.00

Review:  I was hoping that a great utility jacket would be included in the sale!  I had to decide between the one I am wearing above and this one.  Call me crazy, but I was not a fan of the other one because it had this random tied string on the very back.  I also loved the draped look on this one!  I’m glad that I tried it on in the store, because I found that it ran big!  I actually ended up sizing down 2 sizes.  I would typically wear a Medium in this, and I ended up getting an Extra Small.  Can’t wait to wear this when the weather gets cooler!
Price: $44.90, marked down from $69.00

Leith Shawl Collar Cocoon Cardigan // similar top here // similar jeans here // Vince Camuto booties // similar necklace here
Review:  This cardigan is basically everything!  I always love stocking up on sweaters and cardigans during the #NSale.  They always have so many great options!  This one is no different!  It comes in three different colors, but I was immediately drawn to this orange color!  Some sizes and colors are starting to sell out, so run and grab this one quick!  I am wearing a size small.
Price: $49.90, marked down from $74.00

Review:  Another great cardigan!  This one falls so nicely and has pockets!  I was impressed with the fabric, and it comes in seven different colors!  I am wearing a size small.
Price: $31.90, marked down from $48.00
Now for something a little different!  I created this next look with items that I purchased last year.  The great news is that each piece I am wearing has a similar item to it that is part of the sale, or the exact item is part of the sale!  So, you can easily recreate this look!  Make sure to read my notes below the pictures for all the details!

If you’re doing some weekend shopping, I hope this review helps you easily pick out your favorites!  Going into the store and shopping can be pretty overwhelming.  I typically opt for online shopping, but here’s a tip that helped me out! 
Shopping tip:  Look online FIRST and make a wish list of items you want to look at in the store.  I did this before I went to Nordstrom on the first day of Early Access, and I’m SO glad I did.  It’s so overwhelming going into the store, and it helped me focus a little bit more and find exactly what I wanted.  
Alright, that’s a wrap!  I hope you enjoyed the roundup of some items I purchased and loved from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!  There will be a part 2 coming in a few weeks!  Stay tuned for that!
Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Great post! I already purchased a lot of the same items you did! Quick question- for the Lush Tee, what size did you get? I'm torn between a small and medium. I'm generally a xs or small in women's sizing. Thanks!

      Thanks, Ashlona! I take a small in the lush v-neck tee. It probably depends what kind of fit you want! If you're talking about the Lush strappy blouse, I also got a small! Hope this helps! 🙂

    LOVE your picks!!! and I love seeing what everyone else has bought. I'm shopping the sale tmro and I've been eyeing the plum bell sleeve dress. I was wondering if I was going to have to wear leggings (because I'm 5'11) with it but I see that you're 5'10 and it totally works as a dress!
    Xx, K
