Ready to shop ’til you drop? Nordstrom is going super hard with its anniversary sale and our closets are crying happy tears! The retailer is cutting prices on everything including beauty, accessories, clothes and home decor.

The best part is the deals even include products from the new arrivals section! Although the event takes place between July 20 and August 5, Nordstrom opened up the sales over a week early for its Rewards cardmembers on Thursday, July 12.

To help you sift through all the majorly marked down goodies, the Shop With Us team has created the ultimate guide full of all the best brands to shop from.

Go ahead and bookmark this because it’s going to help you shop smart and put the best threads in your closet for the next month!


nordstrom rewards card

The Rewards card requires a free sign-up and gives you redeemable points every time you make a Nordstrom purchase. You can either get the regular Nordstrom Retail or the Visa Platinum and/or Visa Signature cards.

The Nordstrom Retail card gets you 1 point for every dollar you spend online and in physical stores at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook and Trunk Club. For every 2,000 points you earn, you’ll get a $20 Note to spend on anything you want. If you sign up for the Visa cards, you’ll get points that way as well as points for every dollar you spend anywhere.

If you’re looking for stylish affordable dresses, then focus on Topshop, Charles Henry and Chelsea 28. The brand Eliza J also has lots of trendy dresses that include more plus-size options. Each brand offers a ton of dresses that are $100 and under in a variety of silhouettes.

Vince Camuto Acasha Pump, $84.90, was $129.95

Shop trendy statement shoes with Vince Camuto, Ted Baker London and Sam Edelman. For comfortable kicks, check out Cole Haan.


ted baker bag

Ted Baker London, $196.90, was $295

Trendy fanny pack kind of fashionista? Look up Mali + Lili and Treasure and Bond to get sleek, modern style under $60. If you’re the classic type, then take advantage of the pretty grabs by Rebecca Minkoff and the Nordstrom label.

If you’re always eyeing high-end labels but haven’t sealed the deal just yet, it’s a great time to snatch up Tory Burch or Ted Baker London for nearly $100 less than the original price.

Vince Camuto Crepe Culotte Jumpsuit, $111.90, was $168

Check out Julia Jordan and Vince Camuto for jumpsuits dressy enough to wear to work. If you’re looking for a comfy jumpsuit meant for lounging around and casual outings, try Billabong and 1.STATE.

J.Crew Bead and Rafia Earrings, $42.90, was $65

For statement earrings, head straight to BaubleBar and J.Crew. If you’re all about classic pieces, try the Nordstrom brand or Halogen.
