Anniversary Nordstrom Sale Shacket

SPLURGE: Good American shacket: This shacket was not all that it's hyped up to be! It wasn't super comfy or flattering – the SAVE option below is SO much better, both in price + fit!

(OUR PICK) SAVE: Thread & Supply shacket: For UNDER $35 this camel shacket is a crazy good Anniversary Nordstrom Sale find! This is great to throw on for an extra layer of warmth, or to easily add some style to a fall/winter outfit. This super affordable option truly is the BEST shacket of the Sale this year – love when the “save” is better than the splurge!

Moto Jacket

SPLURGE: BLANKNYC jacket: Between the belt and zippers on this jacket, the details make it SO cute. You can shop it during the Sale for $130 (reg. up to $198), and if you like the suede look the most, this is definitely the jacket for you!

(OUR PICK) SAVE: BLANKNYC faux leather jacket: This save Anniversary Nordstrom Sale option is the same brand (hello quality) but a smaller price tag! This faux leather jacket is so soft you won’t be able to tell the difference. This is our pick because a moto jacket isn't necessarily a staple you'll be wearing with every fall/winter outfit – but it is fun to have for a few select outfits! Since that's the case, in this situation we think it's better to SAVE on something that looks super close to the splurge. Grab this edgy piece for less than $60 during the Sale!

Anniversary Nordstrom Sale Booties

SPLURGE: Steve Madden booties: These pointed toe booties are beautiful in every color! They have a pretty good price at $95 and have such pretty patterns embossed throughout with a block heel that'll be super easy to walk in.

(OUR PICK) SAVE: BP bootie: Tons of great ratings on these adorable Anniversary Nordstrom Sale booties that are almost identical to the splurge! There's a super cute open cut on the sides with a zipper in the back – these added details will have everyone thinking these are super high-end boots. This is our pick because they're actually really comfy, and other BP pairs from past Anniversary Sales have lasted years! Usually we suggest to splurge on a staple like this, but these are a unicorn find.

Tote bag

SPLURGE #1: FRAME Signature Tote: This minimalist, yet classy tote is perfect for work or an overall polished look. While it’s on the pricey side, it’s still $158 OFF during the Sale – the perfect time to grab it if you love it!!

(OUR PICK) SAVE #1: Madewell Transport Tote: You’ll really LOVE this transport tote bag for the value, look, function and ALLLL the things! It's a popular Anniversary Nordstrom Sale item, and we'll be surprised if it sticks around much longer because Madewell totes always go fast. This is our pick because Madewell totes are super good quality and last YEARS with a really good price!


(OUR PICK) SPLURGE: SPANX Leather Leggings: You’ve probably heard about these faux leather leggings before, and let us (and the 3,000+ good ratings) just confirm they’re incredible! The Sale is the PERFECT time to get them with crazy good savings – you’ll be obsessed with these all throughout the cooler months. This is our pick because they're a staple and the fit + fabric is SO much better than the save option! (More about this comparison here).

SAVE: Nordstrom faux leather leggings: Under $40 deal on these cropped leggings, but we wouldn't suggest getting them – they're not comfy and they don't fit well at all. Stick with the splurge here!


(OUR PICK) SPLURGE: FRAME flare jean: These were our pick for the most comfortable flare jeans of the whole sale! We loveee these high waisted jeans that have a wide flare. These classic blue denims are super high quality and worth the splurge.

SAVE: BP flare jeans: Under $35 deal on these flare jeans! These low rise, subtle flares come in two washes and have a really affordable price.
