Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 - Let's Talk STRATEGY

Friends, the most amazing sale of the ENTIRE YEAR starts this Thursday, I cannot wait!! I thought I'd answer a few questions for you since I've been a Nordstrom cardholder for years and always get early access to the sale. See below for answers to common questions bout the #NSale!
What is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale?
The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, otherwise known as the #NSale, is when Nordstrom releases brand-new fall merchandise (including designer merch) at amazing discounted prices!! Tory Burch, Kendra Scott, Michael Kors, Rebecca Minkoff... all your favorite brands. Some items are marked down by SEVERAL HUNDRED DOLLARS! It's honestly the best sale of the entire year.

Why shop it?
Unlike most sales, where items start out full price and then are marked down, #NSale items start out at a lower price and then go back up in August! You will not find deals on brand-name items anywhere else for the rest of the fall/winter season, so buy it now, save (literally and figuratively) and wear it later! 

When can I shop?!
Nordstrom cardholders have Early Access from July 13-20. During these dates, only Nordstrom debit or credit cardholders can shop the sale. Items sell out crazy fast during this sale, so you definitely want to get first pick and make sure your size is available! If you do want to shop Early Access, you can sign up for a Nordstrom debit or credit card here. It takes a few days to process a new card, so sign up sooner rather than later if you want early access.

The sale opens up to the public on July 21, and prices go back up August 7!

How do I know what to buy?
Strategy, strategy, strategy!! You need to know what you are looking for in order to tackle this amazing sale. Go through your fall and winter wardrobe. Are you missing anything? Do you have brown riding boots? Do you have a trusty go-to cardigan that looks good with everything? Are your black work flats looking a little tired and sad and maybe need to be replaced? What about a new pair of ankle boots or a watch? Make an excel spreadsheet of what you already have and what you would like to have in your fall/winter wardrobe. The "would like to have" column will be what you look for during the sale!
Make sure you know your size for different brands, as well. Do a little research ahead of time and write down your sizes. If you still aren't sure and are worried about online shopping, don't fret! Nordstrom always has free returns! Order two sizes and send back the one that doesn't fit. You can also bring your return back to the store and return it in person. I do this all the time and they are always super helpful and understanding!
