Hits & Misses: 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

July 8, 2022

By:

Erin Schrader

A few drops of sweat and countless outfit changes later, my official 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Hits & Misses post is here! From sweaters to boots, jeans and dresses, it went from summer to fall in a HOT second in our house. No truly, it got really hot as soon as I started putting said fall items on. #worthit.

While there are literally thousands of items [I may have ordered just a few shy of this number, oops] in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I am hoping this compilation of hits and misses will not just save you some time, but see the items on a real person and also be able to hear my honest thoughts on sizing, quality, cut and all of that good stuff! 

While I’m hitting publish today on this post, I still have a decent amount of items that are still on their way to me. With that being said, I will be updating this blog post often with new hits & misses so keep checking back! 

If you have been shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale already, you may have missed a thing or two, but have no fear – you have until July 31st to purchase the products at a major discount. After that, prices will go back up to normal.

ANNIVERSARY SALE SHOPPING TIPS & TRICKS

  1. Anything that you love and want for yourself, add to your wish list and check out once the sale is live for your card level [reminder: if you don’t have a card, the public sale starts July 15th]! If it isn’t currently available in your size and color preference, things are always coming in and out of stock, so check back often!
  2. Remember that Nordstrom always offers free shipping and free returns! Because of this, I would recommend ordering two sizes on things you are unsure of, to make sure that you can get it at the sale price and return the one that doesn’t work!
  3. Some of the items I mention may currently be out of stock, but check back often for restocks! We’ll also be notifying you of restocks over on our Facebook page and #NSALE group [highly recommend joining the group for a ton of helpful info and nightly giveaways!] 
  4. Keep in mind that while the sale lasts until 7/31, things go quick so don’t be like N*Sync and have to say “bye, bye, bye” to everything before it’s gone – shop early!
  5. If there’s anything I didn’t cover and you still have questions, ask away below and I’ll answer right here so check back! For more Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts, click here!

ps. For sizing reference, I am 5’4, 140 lbs depending on the day, typically a 2/4 in tops/dresses and 27 in jeans/pants with a preferred inseam of 26-28 inches. Bra size is 36DDD [I get it from my momma]. Now, let’s get [the longest party you’ve ever attended] started…

Dre Low Rise Slim Boyfriend Jeans • Rag & Bone [true to size, wearing in 27]// NSYNC Graphic Boyfriend Tee • Vinyl Icons [true to size, wearing in small] // Ethyl Low Top Sneaker • Sam Edelman [true to size]

Note: While I expected to not like these [low rise and I haven’t been friends in a long time], they are so soft and super comfortable! I was pleasantly surprised!

‘Ab’Solution Raw Hem Slim Straight Leg Jeans • Wit & Wisdom [size down if in between, wearing in 2] // Off the Shoulder Pullover • Treasure & Bond [size down if in between, wearing in XS] // Dolce Vita Paily Sandals [true to size, wearing in cafe] // Pia Layered Pendant Necklace • Madewell

Note: I have them as a hit but I think I might want to try a new size! They are just a little too snug for my comfort level at the moment! Maybe it was the Crumbl cookies I ate right before?

BOTTOMS – MISSES

Good Legs Raw Hem High Waist Cigarette Leg Jeans • Good American [true to size, wearing in 4] // un Dazed Slub Cotton Blend Sweater • Billabong [true to size, wearing in small] // Dolce Vita Sandals [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I didn’t care for this color of wash at all, I didn’t find it to be flattering!

Presley High Waist Boyfriend Jeans • Pistola Denim [true to size, wearing in 27] // Anna Cotton T-Shirt • AllSaints [size up if in between, wearing in small] // Ethyl Low Top Sneaker • Sam Edelman [true to size] // Pia Layered Pendant Necklace • Madewell

Note: I am on the fence on these – I wouldn’t label them a miss, I think I am just slightly too short for them! I did have to cuff an extra time to wear with sneakers! They are pretty soft, I just don’t know how much I will wear them so filing them under “undecided”!

he Perfect Pant Back Seam Skinny Ankle Pants • Spanx [true to size, wearing in small] // Tie Front Lace Cotton Blend Blouse • Halogen [size down if in between, wearing in XS] // Amazon Essentials heels [true to size] // Pia Layered Pendant Necklace • Madewell

Why it’s a miss: There isn’t anything “bad” about these pants, they are super comfortable, I think I just prefer a little more skinny at the ankle if they are a skinny pant. I don’t see myself wearing them much so back they go!

Ultra Run Sports Bra • Sweaty Betty [true to size, wearing in 36DD] // Shirred Up Shorts • Zella [true to size, wearing in small] // Waffle One Sneaker – Nike [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: This sports bra had virtually no padding which for my ladies, they need a little [or a lot] of something! Back it goes!

Altitude Running Shorts • Zella [true to size, wearing in small]

Why it’s a miss: I prefer my workout shorts to be a higher rise. These seemed to sit pretty low on my waist and a little small! Back they go!

Performance Mesh Tank • Zella [true to size, wearing in small] // Shirred Up Shorts • Zella [true to size, wearing in small] // Waffle One Sneaker – Nike [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: There is nothing wrong with this tank, it just didn’t do much for me! I felt like the fit at the waist was a little awkward.

Cara Lite Half Zip Crop Sweatshirt • Zella [size up if in between, wearing in small but could do medium] // Get Moving 14-Inch Skort • Spanx [true to size, wearing in small] // Waffle One Sneaker – Nike [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I hate filing this under miss because I love the color and idea so much, however, I think it’s cropped slightly more than I prefer which means I most likely wouldn’t wear it often!

CozyChic Ultra Lite™ Long Robe • Barefoot Dreams [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I don’t think labeling it a “miss” is fair, however, I think it’s a little too long for my liking and maybe a tad too thin. The fabric is super soft, but I’m more into plush thick robes!

Seasons Knit Long Sleeve Organic Cotton Shirtdress • Faherty [size up, wearing in small and quite small on me] // Agnes Western Boot • Sam Edelman [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I love the comfort and feel of this dress, however, the small was way too small. Those buttons were trying to bust open at every move!

Zip Suede Miniskirt • Blank NYC [size up, wearing in 27 and still too small] // Amazon Bodysuit [true to size, wearing in small] // Agnes Western Boot • Sam Edelman [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: While she’s cute, she is way too short [and tiny] for me! I would have to size up 1-2 sizes for this to be comfortable! I love the idea of it, but maybe if I was 10 years younger 😉

Floral Long Sleeve Dress • CeCe [true to size, wearing in small] // Agnes Western Boot • Sam Edelman [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I love the cut and look of this dress, however, at 5’4 it was too short for my comfort level! If you are petite, this would be an adorable option!
