Leah Behr: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What I Loved, Hated and Bought

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale: What I Loved, Hated and Bought

Coming home from an exhaustive evening at Nordstrom, with a very depressing story to tell. After spending hours trying on different clothes, they basically couldn’t find my card in the system, so I didn't get to buy anything. from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale What's even crazier, is that I checked out online with a couple of items just this morning! Long story short, I never actually use my Nordstrom card, I just have it so I can shop the sale. And, I guess it’s been unused for so long that they deactivated it. It honestly just makes me laugh because, if you’ve been watching my Instagram stories, you know I’ve had a really frustrating week, in general. And...this just tops the cake. I have to laugh at this point, truly. (And now I’m actually certain that mercury or some other planet is in retrograde…)

If you’re wondering why I didn’t open up a new card, we’re actually applying for a mortgage here soon, and the first rule of applying for a mortgage is don’t open up a new credit card! #adulting

 So… here’s my full list of every Nordstrom Anniversary Sale item I was DROOLING over and fully intended to buy at the sale. Bookmarking these now, as some will inevitably come back in stock (they are selling out fast!), and hopefully I’ll be able to pick them up when the sale goes public. If you’re a card member, these items are pure gold! Don’t wait! If you’re not a cardmember… bookmark this page so you can shop them later with me. Also, I'll be posting some try on sessions on Instagram stories later, so be sure to follow along there.

****Update: I wrote this post last night and woke up to find that all my orders processed online, last night. Remember when I said I could check out online yesterday morning? Well after leaving the checkout, I went to my car and immediately checked out with these items. I never got a confirmation email from Nordstrom, so I figured it never went through. Then, I just woke up to find they ALL WENT THROUGH! Praise! There are still a few items below that sold out before I got the chance to snag them, so def bookmarking them for when they get restocked!

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:

Caslon TeeI really needed a basic black tee with white stripes, and this fit the bill. It's great quality and on sale for $18. (Purchased this.)

Leith CoatYou guys... this is a dream!! It's the perfect transitional piece to take from summer to fall, and would go with everything. I'm wearing a large here, which is why it looks huge, but I snagged it in a small. Bookmark these piece for when/if they restock it, for sure! (Purchased this.)

Rag and Bone Denim: If you are in need of a new pair of black denim, look no further. These are on major sale and fit like a dream! I would definitely size up (I'm normally a 27 and wearing a 28 here) but I love them, and the raw hem. Seriously considering buying these...

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:


Long Sleeve Tee - I don't really need another long sleeve tee but I fell in love with this color. This one usually restocks, so I'll be checking daily for that. I'm wearing a medium here, but a small would have been fine, too. The quality is OK, and what I expect from this brand. If you are looking for something a little more structured, I'd go with this one, instead. (I will be buying this one, once it's restocked, though.)

Rag & Bone Denim: Size 28

Vince Flats: If you're looking for a splurge-worthy flat for fall, look no further. These are next level chic! They come in 5 colors,  and fit TTS.

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:


Waffle Stitch Cardigan : This piece sold out quickly yesterday, but it's a dream for fall. Totally bookmarking this to buy when it restocks.

Long Sleeve Tee

Paige Denim: If you're into Paige, these are on a great sale. I didn't think they were very flattering on the butt, thought I loved the style in front.

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:


Topshop Coat: I posted this on Instagram, last night, and you guys came to love it as much as me. It actually looks a lot more boxy on the model, than IRL. I usually size up in this brand, but I went with my true size 4 and it fit perfectly. It still feels like you could wear over a sweater, too. It's almost $50 off, and would make a great winter coat. (Purchased this.)

Caslon Tee

Gray Denim: These are a great budget-friendly pair of jeans, at just $42. I have some like it, so I didn't buy them. The ones I am wearing are 29's - because that's all they had. They were definitely loose, so I would say stick to your normal size in these. (There are some other great pairs by this brand in the sale, that won't break the bank, here.)

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:


Suede Moto Jacket: I picked this jacket up in a rust color, at last year's sale. They seem to always have this jacket as part of the sale, but with new colors, every year. I am dying over this dreamy olive color. I couldn't bring myself to buy it, with everything else in my cart, but it was a top contender, for sure. I'm wearing a medium here, but I would buy my normal size small. It's a great deal at almost $60 off. 

Lace Trim Cami - This piece is almost sold out at the sale, but TBH, I'm not a fan. It felt cheap and low quality. Save your money and keep an eye out at the Loft for sales on their camis. Much better quality, and will cost you about the same. 

Gray Denim: $42

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:


Sweater Dress: This quickly made my wishlist for the sale, and it didn't disappoint, in person. In fact, this brand is killing it at the sale, this year, and I bought 6 of their pieces! This dress is light enough to wear now, but going to be a great piece to layer with caridgans or a leather jacket, in the fall. It's great quality and fits TTS. (Will probably purchase when they restock.)

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:


Tie Waist Pants: Another item from the brand I mentioned above. I'm wearing a medium here, but was able to snag the smalls online. I'm assuming they fit TTS, as these were definitely too big on me. (Purchased this.)

Lace Trim Cami:

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:


Boyfriend Jeans: These were not on my radar, but my stylist picked them out for me, and I quickly fell in love. In fact, I fell in love with all the designer denim last night - which is great for my legs and butt, but bad for my wallet! Still, they are on a great sale at $75 off, so I snagged them. These fit TTS if you want a looser, more boyfriend fit. Size down, if you want them tight. (Purchased these, but may return if I like these BlankNYC ones better.)

Twist Front Long Sleeve Tee: This definitely has more of an oversized, boyfriend fit, but I'm into it. Comes in multiple colors and I'm wearing a small hit. Size down for a tighter fit.

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:


Peplum Top: This was another piece my stylist brought me, and I fell in love. It can be dressed up or down, and it so cute on! I'm wearing a 4 year, but I sized up on my order, like I normally do with this brand. (Purchased this)

Frame Denim: Ugh you guys. Designer jeans...SO WORTH IT! They just feel so much more structured. I'm coming to terms with the fact that it's better to invest in a few designer pairs that you really love, rather than having a ton of cheap pairs that don't hold up over time. If you're looking for a fun new fit, these are it. I'm wearing a size 26 here, and they were def too snug, but I think my normal 27's would have fit perfectly.

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:



Fleece pullover: This is one of the pieces I was able to snag yesterday morning, and it did not disappoint in person! It was all the rage, last season, and sold out multiple times, so it's wonderful to see it in the sale. I had bought a knock-off version of it, because I couldn't swallow the $70 original price, but this proved to be every bit worth it, in person. SO soft, warm and cozy. I'm wearing a small, but it's def an oversized fit. (Purchased this.)

Articles of Society Jeans: Although these are a great deal, they honestly felt cheap and too stretchy on. These were a no for me...

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:


V Neck Sweater - Another piece by this brand that won me over so much that I bought it in two colors. It can be dressed up or down, comes in 5 colors, and fits TTS. (Purchased this.)

Paige Denim

NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE OUTFIT DETAILS:


Thermal Cardigan: This sold out quickly, but I'm def bookmarking to snag if/when it gets restocked. Fits TTS and is much cheaper (and seems better quality) than the Free People one everyone raved about, last season.

  1. There are so many great items this year! There was definitely a glitch in the Nordstrom system yesterday because the same thing happened with one of my orders. It never went through, and it finally did this morning. Loving you picks!
