IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN FRIENDS! IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW, NOW YOU KNOW THAT I'M TALKING ABOUT THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE! IT IS A SALE UNLIKE ANY OTHER, AND HANDS DOWN THE BEST TIME TO SHOP FOR SO MANY GREAT ITEMS! THE MARKDOWNS ARE AMAZING, AND SUCH A FUN TIME TO GET YOUR SHOP ON!

SO, FIRST THING'S FIRST, WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE?

AS I MENTIONED ABOVE, IT REALLY IS A SALE UNLIKE ANY OTHER. YOU'RE PROBABLY USED TO OTHER RETAILERS FORMING THEIR SALES AROUND MARKING DOWN OLD ITEMS, BUT NORDSTROM CENTERS THIS SALE AROUND MARKING DOWN NEW AND TOP SELLING ITEMS. WE'RE TALKING BRAND NEW MERCHANDISE AT HUGE DISCOUNTS! ALL THE NEW FALL STYLES DISCOUNTED FOR A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME, MOST OF WHICH DON'T EVER GO BACK ON SALE! JUST THINK, YOU COULD HAVE YOUR FALL WARDROBE PURCHASED AT A DISCOUNT AND READY TO GO, ALL BEFORE THE LEAVES CHANGE COLORS! 

ALSO, THE #NSALE EXTENDS OVER ALL CATEGORIES: WOMEN'S CLOTHING, SHOES, BAGS, ACCESSORIES, MENSWEAR, BEAUTY, AND EVERYTHING IN BETWEEN! THE #NSALE CATALOG WAS SENT OUT A FEW WEEKS AGO, AND IT WAS SUCH A TEASER!! (CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE 2018 CATALOG)

NEXT, WHAT ARE MY TIPS & WHAT DO YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SHOPPING THE SALE?

1. THINGS WILL SELL OUT, AND FAST! SO IF YOU SEE SOMETHING YOU LIKE, SNAG IT WHILE YOU CAN! 2. EARLY ACCESS STARTS THURSDAY JULY 12TH AND RUNS THROUGH THURSDAY JULY 19TH.

DON'T ONLY VIEW THE SALE FOR YOURSELF, BUT KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR THAT PERFECT GIFT FOR THAT PERFECT SOMEONE, BECAUSE EVEN WHEN THE HOLIDAYS ROLL AROUND, THE DISCOUNTS WON'T BE THIS GOOD. 5.
