Ladies, when I tell you that I have scoured the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I mean I freakin’ scoured. I’m dying to write the sentence, I looked at absolutely every single thing in the sale. But alas, I did skip two categories: lingerie and pajamas (I had to stop somewhere).
Note: July 12th – July 18th is considered early access, meaning only those with Nordstrom credit cards who put their purchase on said credit cards are allowed to shop right now. If you do not have a Nordstrom credit card, your access to the sale begins on July 18th. Set an alert to shop that morning so your favorite items do not sell out – that does happen, unfortunately.

AllSaints Dalby Leather Biker Jacket
Girl, we all need blush leather in our lives, and the AllSaints Dalby Leather Biker Jacket is a fantastically flattering biker jacket in a yummy rose pink.
Boss Dikena Ponte Sheath Dress
For my readers in a more conservative office environment, you will love having this color and silhouette in your work wardrobe. The Boss Dikena Ponte Sheath Dress is definitely a power look.
Paul Green Meg Slide Sandal
Every person I have tried these Paul Green Meg Slide Sandals on has loved them. To see the black patent ones on sale will delight so many of my clients.
Vince Camuto Lightweight Long Coat
I am trying to shove fashion away from dreary colors in cold weather, and instead, embrace a light-colored palette. I cannot wait to put this baby blue Vince Camuto Lightweight Long Coat on someone.
Chelsea28 Floral Print Bow Front Wide Leg Jumpsuit
This Chelsea28 Floral Print Bow Front Wide Leg Jumpsuit has the makings of a very flattering jumpsuit — a rare find. Notice the pockets, the stretchy back, and the graceful fall of fabric around the midsection. I can also tell that you won’t need a bra, which is worthy of celebration in and of itself.
Chelsea 28 Leather Moto Jacket
This burgundy Chelsea 28 Leather Moto Jacket is for my budget-conscious readers who want a timeless and chic leather jacket. It is always exciting to see a quality leather jacket in the lower price bracket.
J.Crew New Lightweight Sweater Blazer
You may remember me being a huge fan of the J.Crew New Lightweight Sweater Blazer. It is perfection for my clients in casual work environments. Now, it’s on sale and available in a bright red shade. Color me happy, this one is coming home with me and being paired with my flame-colored Rothy’s.
Good American Good Legs High Waist Skinny Jeans
You may also recall that Good American is my go-to line of denim for my clients. To see the Good American Good Legs High Waist Skinny Jeans on sale is a real delight.
Halogen Ribbed Sweater
I adore this sexy long sleeve tee for layering. Tuck the Halogen Ribbed Sweater into high waisted skirts or pants, or wear it under vests.
Lafayette 148 New York Quilted Front Merino Wool Vest
Look, a vest! The Lafayette 148 New York Quilted Front Merino Wool Vest is an example of what would go well over the long sleeve tee above. I adore the luxurious long line of this mixed medium garment.
Rebecca Taylor Cheetah Print Dress
The first brand I look for when I am shopping the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale for myself is Rebecca Taylor. I am loving this shoe and color combo. I put this on a client yesterday. Just note, the Rebecca Taylor Cheetah Print Dress is for the darker-skinned, or the very fair.
BP Belted Waffle Knit Henley Jumpsuit
This was probably the most shocking item I discovered in the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. It’s a sexy lounge jumpsuit. I cannot wait to put the BP Belted Waffle Knit Henley Jumpsuit on my body and browse about my house.
Topshop Oversize V-Neck Sweater
The color, the deep v-neck, and the intentional frumpiness are going to be so much fun for colder summer nights and fall time. Pair the Topshop Oversize V-Neck Sweater with jeans or half-tuck it into skirts or pants.
Theory ‘Tolleree’ Short Sleeve Cashmere Pullover
Radically reduced Theory cashmere is enough to perk one up, but this flattering Theory ‘Tolleree’ Short Sleeve Cashmere Pullover is also great for work and play. Tuck it into a leather skirt or leave it out with pants.
Alo Foxy Faux Fur Jacket
I adore these apocalyptic Alo Foxy Faux Fur jackets, and that dark lavender is an incredibly rare color to see in fashion. I am humming with this one.
Halogen Midi Sweater Skirt
If you have a flat torso (this has nothing to do with being thin by the way) you have to get this Halogen Midi Sweater Skirt, so I can live through you (my lower stomach sticks out too much for this skirt). And again, so many things are making my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Best Of List because their color is so rare. That teal is delicious.
Nordstrom Signature V-Neck Sleeveless Top
The baby blue and burgundy color that this top comes in are a great addition to many women’s work wardrobes. The Nordstrom Signature V-Neck Sleeveless Top goes with everything.
Good American Good Waist High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans
Oh look, here are those Good American jeans again, but these are the ones I’m getting. Why you ask? Because the Good American Good Waist High Waist Ankle Skinny Jeans are made from their stretch fabric that has zero restriction. I wear these on 10-hour flights, friend. And the ankle length is the perfect length for my 5′ 4″ frame. I will say though, the ones I mentioned previously are more flattering because they are less stretchy and hold you in. The extra stretch holds nothing in, but I’m good with that.
Coach Calfskin Leather Foldover Convertible Clutch
Coach has really been impressing me lately. This Coach Calfskin Leather Foldover Convertible Clutch is beautiful and versatile.
Rails Collins Military Jacket
I love this Rails Collins Military Jacket. I prefer the sage color, which is sold out now, but this light charcoal delighted me enough to share it with you.
Halogen Knit Midi Skirt
I am so excited to see numerous burgundy skirts this Nordstrom Anniversary sale. This stretchy Halogen Knit Midi Skirt does not have a zipper, which means it is comfortable. And it has pockets, which is always a gift from above for those with cell phones or allergies (who else keeps tissues with them at all times?).
Aquatalia Faria Weatherproof Bootie
This Aquatalia Faria Weatherproof Bootie is a must if you need new black booties. They are comfortable, waterproof, and the price is WOW.
Madewell Oversize Denim Jacket
Remember when I used to dislike denim jackets? Oh, that has changed. I am obsessed with these cool oversized ones, like this Madewell Oversize Denim Jacket, for myself and for anyone else who loves that kind of unkept, cool approach.
Cole Haan Maggie Bootie
I am not a fan of most sock-hybrid-shoes, but this Cole Haan Maggie Bootie looks fabulously versatile, yet on-trend. It is going to be very flattering, and I am hoping comfortable.
Chelsea28 Layering Turtleneck
You probably already know what I am going to say: the Chelsea28 Layering Turtleneck is amazing for layering and that green color is lavish. It will look good on practically all skin tones.
Nili Lotan Shayna Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater
I know my cashmere ladies were waiting for this the whole time. It looks to me that women under 5′ 5″ will be able to wear this Nili Lotan Shayna Cashmere Turtleneck Sweater with leggings. I will report back to you. Otherwise, this light grey color is very flattering for olive skin tones. And you already know my goal of lightening up everyone’s cold-weather wardrobes.
AGL Slingback Pump
These AGL Slingback Pumps excite me so much. It is so hard to find a tan heel that is not suede. Thank you, Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Anyone who needs a new work shoe, please get this.
Rebecca Minkoff Jody Suede Feed Bag
This Rebecca Minkoff Jody Suede Feed Bag is a fantastic casual-chic weekend bag. The size is efficient and I adore the outside pocket. The colors are really fresh as well.
Madewell Sparkle Double Hoop Earrings
I am always using Madewell’s pieces in their “vintage gold” shade to compliment outfits that have zippers in that bronzy gold. I am delighted to see a more bold version I can use: the Madewell Sparkle Double Hoop Earrings.
Halogen A-Line Leather Midi Skirt
An a-line midi skirt is divine for my medium height and taller clients. It is utter sophistication. I respect it so much, I don’t even mind that the Halogen A-Line Leather Midi Skirt is only available in black.
Bony Levy Diamond Stacking Ring
I am all about those delicate investment pieces, and Bony Levy on sale is always a treat. I particularly like the rose gold option of this Bony Levy Diamond Stacking Ring.
Karl Lagerfeld Paris Demas Sandal
These Karl Lagerfeld Paris Demas Sandals are sexy, yet reasonable. They will work with a cocktail dress as well as jeans.
Vince Camuto Ponte Ankle Pants
My go-to stretch work pant is the Kobi Halperin Alexandra ankle pant, but for clients on a budget, these Vince Camuto Ponte Ankle Pants are my back-ups. And now they are on sale. What a treat! They’re comfortable, flattering, and affordable. Tip: They’re also available in Plus Sizes.
Sole Society Lanette Pointy Toe Bootie
I am consistently on the lookout for comfortable and flattering, yet edgy booties to go with the lighter palette I am pushing for in cold-weather clothing. I can’t wait for the Sole Society Lanette Pointy Toe Bootie to show up at my door. Did I mention that the color has the name Prosecco in it? You know that makes me happy.
Liverpool High Rise Stretch Denim Ankle Leggings
These Liverpool High Rise Stretch Denim Ankle Leggings are my go-to pull-on jeans. For ladies who prefer not to tuck in their shirts, these are for you. They are very flattering, and since they are pull-ons, they don’t bulge at your stomach like traditional jeans.
1.State Solid Pencil Skirt
The 1.State Solid Pencil Skirt is yet another burgundy stretch pencil skirt. This past month I was looking for a burgundy pencil skirt for numerous clients’ work wardrobes. I am beyond delighted they are back.
Aquatalia Pasha Pump
I adore Aquatalia’s Pasha Pump. The color selection is divine, the almond toe is flattering, and the heel is comfortable.
Ted Baker London Wide Collar Brushed Wrap Coat
Ted Baker is my go-to source for winter outerwear. Between London and New York, I live in my Ted Baker coat. It’s not for San Diego, but if you live somewhere cold or are heading somewhere cold, this Ted Baker London Wide Collar Brushed Wrap Coat is for you.
Madewell Night Star Statement Earrings
Again, brava Madewell for expanding your jewelry collection, and offering it to us for such a great price. These Madewell Night Star Statement Earrings are fabulous.
NYDJ Stretch Knit Trousers
These NYDJ Stretch Knit Trousers are another go-to pant I recommend for my clients who want a trouser look in their wardrobe. It’s nice to see the tried and true items discounted for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
