Hits & Misses: 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

July 12, 2023

By:

A few drops of sweat and countless outfit changes later, my official 2023 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 LOT 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 August 6th 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 17th]! 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 8/6, 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…
