Did You Go? The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Did you go?

To the Nordstrom Anniversary sale?


The sale is still going strong and with close attention there are some good opportunities to be had.


Sales can be a little like yesterday’s lunch; they lose their appeal once they are enjoyed. Best to get in, conquer and leave in triumph.



I break my sales shopping into two parts and always apply the same Do and Don’t rules to my buying. Whether I am searching beauty, accessories or clothing, I follow the same thought process.


The first stage, re-assessing and replacing some of the classics, has been successful and now I am looking for a few bits and pieces in a whole variety of categories.




My next search is beauty; this year I haven’t found a huge amount of bargains but enough.

Then I check on the accessories; the bags, the luggage and any of the practical pieces I could do with smartening up a bit.

I take a swing around the jackets and coats.

And lastly a dip into the lingerie/shape wear. I am looking for pieces I know work and I need.

A random wander in many ways, but this way I end up with what I need at a fraction of the price; a checklist of sorts.



Done and done. xv

We used to shop in the Portland Oregon Nordstroms all the time. I heart Nordstroms lol
But I have to first find my way to the malls here in Jax then see if there is a Nordstroms.
If not, the good news is … Nordstroms, Mail Order Online.

I ordered online, since I was away on a buying trip. It’s absolutely wonderful to be able to shop the season’s best ahead of time, and on sale. Our South Coast Plaza Nordstrom is gorgeous, it’s like entering the most luxurious shop whenever I go there. Impeccable service, highest quality selections, beautiful live music, all that’s missing is the view of Parisian streets that you enjoy, Vicki.

Sounds like “you done Good!” and just the thought of being able to “pop” into France for a deal sounds too good to be true! So glad you had fun! Unfortunately, where I live the sales ended a week ago and no more light, airy summer clothes to be found! The boots and Fall cardigans are already on display and apparently fringe is in! All the cardis and shawls were sporting a fringe. I have to admit, I am NOT ready for Fall / Winter clothes. I haven’t even gotten around to wearing most of my airy Summer outfits! Anyway, c’est la vie. Your images with blurbs get me every time, Vicki – Love Them!

What a lovely website. I notice you feature Nordstrom despite living between England and France. Do you often order from the U.S. ? (I ask because I live in France and, while appreciating the American price/quality ratio, I try to avoid those customs and delivery charges.)

Veronica, I do order because even though there are some duty and delivery charges I find the value to still be very good. Also the range of good quality at lesser prices is far more than I find here. We seem to have the “high street” or the designers… At Nordstrom I find many lesser known brands who create great pieces at a good price… And they return and all that .. so it’s not difficult at all. :)
