NSale Hits & Misses: Bags & Accessories

July 10, 2024


Team LIY

The 2024 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is officially here, and we’ve been elbow deep in trying the pieces so you don’t have to! We’re sharing what was a hit and what was more of a swing and a miss in today’s post, specifically for handbags & accessories! Don’t forget to join the LIY Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Facebook Group where there are nightly giveaways happening!

PS Consider THIS your NSale headquarters, with all the content in one spot and you can check out Erin’s FULL Hit’s & Misses blog post in one spot right here!

While we’re hitting publish today on this post, we still have a decent amount of items to try on. With that being said, we 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 4th to purchase the products at a major discount. After that, prices will go back up to normal.


  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 8/4, 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. BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE — to see even more #NSALE looks from the team, be sure to check out our lookbook for even more goodness!
  6. Grab the Nordstrom app for the easiest shopping experience AND instant restock alerts when you add to your wish list!


Erin’s Hits

If I could only choose one…Kurt Geiger London Bag

Kurt Geiger London Bag

I told myself I wasn’t buying any bags this year and then this one had to go and catch my eye. I don’t know if it’s the green color, quilted fabric, or perfect size, but needless to say, it ended up coming home with me.

If I were only buying one… Allsaints Leather Half Moon Crossbody

The only bag I cared about in the sale this year! 😉 The strap is a little short but if you’re petite, like me, it’s perfect!

I wasn’t planning on purchasing any handbags this year, but if I do, it’ll be this beauty! It’s stunning and I love the convertible strap!

It goes with everything!! While I did leave this one behind in store, it has not left my mind! I may still snag her. I love how versatile this bag is and the size is perfect!

I had this on my wishlist and couldn’t grab it fast enough! I desperately needed a new crossbody and this color and woven material stole my heart!
