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 denim and bottoms! Don’t forget to join the LIY Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Facebook Group where there are nightly giveaways happening!

PS You can check out Erin’s FULL Hit’s & Misses blog post in one spot right here!

PSS Consider THIS your NSale headquarters, with all the content in one spot!

While we’re hitting publish today on this post, we still have more items on the way. 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.

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 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!

MISSES

Erin’s Misses [5’4” Size 4 or S]

BP Sweatshirt [true to size, wearing medium] // Good American Jeans [true to size, wearing 28] — jeans are a miss only due to length // Nike Sneakers

Why it’s a miss: Filing these under a miss strictly due to length! They were super soft and comfortable but just didn’t look great on me!

Halogen Top [true to size, wearing small] // Halogen Pants [true to size, wearing small]

Why it’s a miss: I was excited about these on the hanger but the minute I put them on I was putting them right back. Just too much going on for my liking.

Zella Tee [true to size, wearing medium] // Zella Vest [true to size, wearing small] // KUT from the Kloth [size down one, wearing 4]

Why it’s a miss: I may have had the wrong size on, but these just felt too stretchy for my liking!

Cassidy’s Misses [5’4” Size 0/2 or XS/S]

Rails Star Embroidered Twill Shirt Jacket [TTS, wearing in size xs] // Ruched Cap Sleeve Sweater [TTS, wearing in size xs] // KUT from the Kloth Raw Crop Hem  [size down at least one, wearing 0] // Clemens Chelsea Boot [size down .5 if in between, wearing in size 7.5]

Why it’s a miss: Ditto what Erin said! I size down one and these jeans were still too stretchy for my liking! I did love the look of them, just not the fit!

Rib Sleeveless Sweater [size down if in between, wearing in size small] // Treasure + Bond Drawstring Maxi Skirt [size down if in between, wearing in size xs] // Clemens Chelsea Boot [size down .5 if in between, wearing in size 7.5]

Claire’s Misses [5’5″ size 8/10]

Free People Button Down Cardigan [size down if in between, wearing medium] // Mother Jeans [true to size] // Nordstrom Ballet Flats [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: Nothing wrong with these! I was on the hunt for a great pair of black denim.. turns out, these are just a superrr dark wash blue jean!

Katy’s Misses [5’4″, size 2 or XS/S]

Mother High Waist Fray Hem Flare Leg Jeans [true to size] // Open Edit Johnny Collar Boxy Crop Sweater [size down if in between] 

Why it’s a miss: While I have and love a pair of Mother jeans, these just didn’t feel flattering on and were way too long for me at 5’4″!

Good American Good Classic Inset Ankle Slim Jeans [size up if in between] // Rails Zoey Star Intarsia Cotton Blend Sweater [true to size] // Nike Court Legacy Lift Platform Sneaker [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I usually love Good American jeans and these had stretch + a fun back seam detail, but from the cut to the fit on me personally, these were not my favorite!

Hannah’s Misses [5’2″, size 2/4 or XS/S]

Good American Good Legs Step Hem Ankle Jeans [size down if in between] // Dolce Vita Loafer Mule [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: These were great, but I am WAY too short for them!! They had great stretch and the wash is perfect, I just couldn’t pull them off at 5’2″!

Steph’s Misses [5’4″ Size 10/12 or M/L]

Kut from the Kloth Donna Raw Hem Ankle Skinny Jeans [true to size, wearing in 12] // Vince Camuto Crew Neck Sweater [true to size, wearing in large] // Sorel Out ‘n’ About Wedge Chelsea Boot [true to size]

Why it’s a miss: I actually really love these jeans!! It’s just that they’re too long for my inseam and they don’t lay quite right below the knee. If you’re taller than me, give them a try!!
