Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

Nordstrom Sale Bargains

he buzziest shopping event of late has to be the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, which previews the upcoming season with a number of incredible deals. These discounts are a fantastic incentive to get a jump on your fall shopping. Along with markdowns in the beauty department, the store also features exclusive sets from luxury brands that can't be found elsewhere at a terrific value. I scoped it out and these are some of the notable "bargains" I found. I totally want a floppy hat for fall and that one is such a great buy right now. While the YSL Touche Éclat isn't on sale, the special edition packaging and deluxe size makes it totally covetable and it is really is one of the best concealers I've ever used. Nordstrom's standard free shipping and free returns policy is in effect throughout the sale which lasts through August 2nd.

  18. I saw this sale on Hautelook but there was no shipping to Canada and it frustrated the crap out of me. The Chanel kit is dreamy, what a good one to have!

  19. The Chanel travel palette looks so chic! And these Nikes would be so comfy to wear.


  20. I like your picks, Rowena. The color of the hat is gorgeous and sophisticated. I have never bought anything during Nordstrom's sale but it seems like a good money saving opportunity for frequent shoppers.

  21. I'll take the Nikes and Hunters please!!

  25. Everyone is posting about this, and I'm so jealous! I went to my local store, and didn't see anything I really needed, but those headphones <3 I'm looking for a pair that won't slip while I'm running, my earbuds are terrible for that.
