It’s every fashion girl’s favorite time of year—the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! For those of you who are new to the sale, it’s a once-a-year event where new merchandise (aka lots of cute stuff for fall) is discounted for a limited time before it goes back up to full price. Basically, it’s the opposite of normal sales, which usually include end-of-season dregs that no one wants anymore.
We already had our expert shopper editor, Judith, round up all the items she has in her cart, but as an Olympic shopper myself (if there were such a thing, I’m sure I could compete professionally, okay?), I had to go check out the scene in person. I’ll take this time to note that the closest Nordstrom to me is at The Grove, one of the most popular malls in America. It also happens to be a tourist destination, meaning heading there on a Saturday in the summer is really asking for it. Nevertheless, I’m glad I braved the crowds because the Nordstrom sale items were just that good. Just in case a hectic mall is not your idea of a good time either, I snapped pics of the best items I found so you can shop them from the convenience of your couch knowing that they’ve already been test-driven IRL. So without further ado, scroll to see the cream of the crop—aka the 17% of items I tried that made the cut—from an absurdly comfy and affordable sweater to the jeans that have “magic pockets.”
