Why do I need this list?

Okay, let's get started! The very best and very trickiest part about the sale of all sales is that a lot of the items are brand new, and only on sale for a few weeks or until they sell out!

Things do sell out (sometimes on the very first day) because the prices are that good. These Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023 picks are all the items that we think pose the very highest sell out risk! These are ALL the things that, if you've got your eye on, you should buy very first before they have a chance to sell out.

If they do sell out, we'll be updating you on any Nordstrom Anniversary Sale restocks in our Complete Guide here.

Top 15 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023 picks: HIGH sell out risk

  1. Medium Transport Leather Tote – An olide but a goodie!! This tote has been a long love of mine and so many others too. It’s so classic it will never go out of style. Everyone can use a good tote!
  2. Good Curve High Waist Distressed Straight Leg Jeans – The past couple years the same-ish version of these have sold out SUPER fast because a) good americans fit like a DREAM, and b) they’re one of the lower priced designer jeans in the sale at under $100. For sure grab these first!!
  3. Convertible Infant Car Seat/Compact Stroller System – The absolute #1 most FOMO inducing item of the whole entire sale last year. I had soooooo many women hit me up asking me to watch out for a restock which, sadly, never came. So if you want this, GET IT. It’s absolutely worth it and AMAZING, and I’ve never seen it on sale anywhere else.
  4. Kids' First Classic Rain Boot – These are absolutely AMAZING if you have toddlers!! They’ll keep their toesies warm all Fall, Winter and Spring long through rainy and even mildly snowy days too. In my 10+ years of daily deal blogging, I can count on one hand the amount of times I’ve seen toddler hunters on sale, and I predict they’ll go fast!
  5. Arizona Big Buckle Slide Sandal – First year Birkenstock is joining the Anniversary Sale family! They’re ALL THE RAGE right now so don’t be shocked when these fly off the shelves.
  6. New Balance Sneaker – The animal print version of these are SO CUTE. And all animal print shoes tend to go first in the sale. They will undoubtedly sell out in the animal print and other neutrals VERY quickly.
  7. Moonlight Eco Crop Pajamas – DYING over the animal print and pink, and these always sell out in every color, but those two first! You’ve been warned.
  8. Béis The Weekend Duffle Bag – Used this in the hospital with Bobby and LOVED it so much! it’s also accompanied me on a few quick trips and it does a great job, especially with the top and bottom divider.
  9. Herschel Supply Co. Pop Quiz Backpack – Again with the animal print, always a fave, but a backpack this practical is (surprisingly) not always a staple in the sale, so I think this year it will be very popular with back-to-school in mind and a trusted, loved brand.
  10. On Cloudswift Running Shoe – A HUGE hit the last several years in a row, beating out even Nikes from what I’ve seen, and the most neutral colors will sell out first!
  11. MOTHER Frayed High Waist Flare Jeans – This is one of the MOST popular women’s designer denim brands right now and at 35% off they’re some of the best bang for your buck during the sale too!
  12. Bernardo Hooded Water Resistant Puffer Jacket – This is one of the best VALUE deals in the whole sale, at almost half off!! And I’ve owned a couple of coats from this brand and they are AWESOME. Super cute in the baby pink or a great neutral beige. A lot of people get their coats or outerwear during the N-Sale so grab this one early if a coat is on your list.
  13. FP Movement The Way Home Shorts – These workout shorts are SOOOO popular and I have never ever seen them on sale!! At just under $20 I predict they will be one of the first things to sell out!
  14. UGG Discoquette Genuine Shearling Slide Slipper – UGG is always a fan fave but they’ve gotten a surge in slipper popularity since Gigi Hadid was seen street-styling hers in between runway shows at NYFW a couple seasons ago. Ugg slippers are now acceptably worn as regular outfit-wear shoes.
  15. Bomba Assorted 3-Pack Cushion No-Show Socks – These socks have exploded in popularity so I think they will get snatched up quickly in the sale!

  1. Thanks so much for finding all the great deals. How I don’t see much kids or baby items in the catalog?

    1. Hey Stephanie,
      You know it’s funny the past couple years they’ve completely left baby and a lot of the kid stuff OUT of the catalog. But they still have great stuff on sale this year in both categories!

  2. Where did you get the tunic/long diagonal hem shirt you are wearing with the black leggings? Love it!
