What I Actually Bought From The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
July 13, 2018
Well, that escalated quickly. It turns out that when it comes to self-control, I don’t really have any. I knew this as a young child while watching myself consume an entire box of macaroni and cheese followed by an entire bag of microwave popcorn, right before eating dinner every single night. So yeah, when I found out that only 99 items could be added to your cart at a time I realized I should probably be done. Until last night again, when I ordered a few more things of course So yes – there is a ton listed below, but consider it blog research. Or an unhealthy obsession with stuff. Whatever you want to call it, here is what I actually purchased from the 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. All of the colors and sizes are mentioned of every item I purchased below! For quick reference, I am 5’4, 125 lbs on a good day [depends on that mac and cheese I mentioned earlier], typically a 2 in tops/dresses and 26 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 30DDD [I get it from my momma]. Onward.
A few things to note before we jump in –
If it is killing you that you can’t shop any of these items until the sale is open to the public [July 20th] have no fear, the Nordstrom credit card is here. That’s the magic ticket to shop the sale at the moment. Items are moving fast so put that FOMO to rest and jump on board!
Once all of these items arrive and my UPS driver wants to murder me, I will start sharing outfits over in our Nordstrom Insiders group and then here on the blog will have my “Hits, Misses and What The Heck Is This?!” where I show every single product on, talk about sizing, whether I liked, loved or hated it and all of that other jazz next Friday, July 20th when everybody can shop!
Maybe just pray for me that I don’t end up loving every single thing you see below in person as much as I do online. Or maybe just pray for my husband.
Alright, time to jump in and see what made me hit “checkout” faster than I just chugged my chamomile tea #partyanimal.
Yikes, I told you that escalated quickly. Now that you see what I bought, what are YOU bringin’ home with you from this year’s anniversary sale? Drop a comment below just in case I missed it the first time around and need it. Because clearly I didn’t buy enough yet…
