The Only Things Worth Buying from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

If you’re a bargain shopper like I am (I never pay full price for anything), you’re going to want to shop in advance for Fall at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Originally I was going to do a “best of each category” for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but after scoping through their site (and making a few shoe purchases myself) I decided to highlight only the items that are the best buys of the sale and the things worth buying from the sale. Spoiler Alert: furniture and leather goods.


Handbags & Wallets: 

I bought one of my favorite Tory Burch purses two years ago from this Anniversary Sale and while it has softened with age it’s still my tried and true Fall bag. This Tory Burch Bag is the closest dupe to the one I have now and you can find some great deals on other designers like Rebecca Minkoff, Longchamp, and Kate Spade.  

If you’re looking for a great bag that won’t break the bank, this one is a convincing Tory Burch dupe as well as this Sole Society bag and this one looks like the Madewell tote everyone carries. 

Jackets & Coats: 

Leather Coats are a good buy right now but one of my favorite things to buy during this sale is Barbour (read my full Barbour buying Guide here). You can’t beat the classic waxed coat nor their quilted jackets for colder weather. I just bought a raincoat from them and I love it (will be adding to the Barbour Guide in a couple of weeks once I’ve tested it out). 

If you’re in need of a trench coat there are two that stand out: this Ted Baker coat, and this classic Ralph Lauren coat.

Hair & Beauty: 

I’m not much into hair and beauty items but the things that I do own I stand behind 100%. The T3 Hair styling tools are amazing. I have a curling wand and a curling iron from them and I love the quality of the device, the heat setting controls, and they don’t leave my hair completely singed afterward. 

One of my favorite perfume scents has a gift box on sale and so does Glamglow masks. I used to use this self-tanner before I started getting regular spray tans and this lash serum is 1000% worth it if you want “wow-worthy” lashes. 


I’ve covered this topic over here, but for a quick refresher: these boots are a fall must-have and Tory Burch has a flat on sale that is perfect for the neutral or black-outfit loving individual. There are all sorts of fun booties available, like these Vince Camuto ones

Home Decor: 

This is what I’m splurging on this year. I love that Le Creuset is a part of the sale, which means you can get a Le Creuset Dutch Oven for 30% off. Smeg products also made the list and there are so many entertaining goodies to love like these enamel serving plates and these cheese boards. There are so many good rugs and it never hurts to pick up some new bedding
