2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Recap

2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Recap

My Purchases:

I’ve compiled pictures below of some of the items I purchased from this year’s 2018 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. I decided that this year I would go for a lot of basics and items that I could get a lot of wear out of year long. Of course, I also purchased some things I just REALLY wanted (i.e. the Stuart Weitzman ‘Waverly’ Shimmer Sock Bootie), because, well…. I’m only human. I certainly didn’t NEED those, but c’mon, look how fantastic they are?!(Original price – $575; Anniversary price – $369.90). I’ve already received those, as well as the Leith ‘Finn’ Red Sock Booties, which also comes in black (Original price – $110; Anniversary price – $69.90). I’ve worn them both, and am very happy with both of those purchases – very comfortable, true to size, and oh so stylish! And I’ve gotten so many compliments on both pairs!
The J.Crew ‘Streets of NYC’ Tee was a must because I love NYC and this will look amazing alone with white jeans or a white blazer over it (Original price – $39.50; Anniversary price – $25.90).
I just received my Spanx Camo Leggings! They have a very cool sheen to them and I’ve always been a lover of Camo styles. I purchased the size Small according to the size chart and because I’ve never worn anything by Spanx. They pretty much fit just like your normal workout leggings and are very comfortable and stylish. I can wear them to workout, just lounge, or even possibly style them in a way that I can wear them out! (Original price – $110; Anniversary price – $72.90).
I just happened to stumble across the Calvin Klein Camo Underwear and Sports Bra Set, so I bought both pairs of underwear and the sports bra and I love them (Sports Bra original price – $28; Anniversary price – $17.90; Camo Underwear original price – $20; Anniversary price – $12.90)

This next picture below features my favorite camis ever! They are the Halogen Seamless Camisoles that come in many colors and are also reversible. I wear these camis pretty much every day underneath whatever I’m wearing, and they just make me feel a little more ‘sucked in’ and definitely more confident! Normally these are 2 for $49, but for the sale, they were 2 for $39! So I got my standard black and white (can’t ever have enough of those colors), and I also got the navy and light pink.
I did not end up purchasing the fabulous Stuart Weitzman ‘Lafayette’ Slouch Boot (comes in Mojave Suede below as well as Black Suede). They are fantastic and hopefully a lot of people did purchase them. I decided that since I already bought 3 pairs of shoes, I didn’t really NEED them. So, for once, I was being practical lol! (Original price – $775.00; Anniversary price – $489.90)

The Sam Edelman Black Stud Heel is fantastic! I received it a while ago and was worried that maybe I should have gotten the 8.5 instead of the 8. But I wore them for the first time the other day (at work for 9 hours on my feet, mind you), and I was I able to wear them comfortably that whole time! Very chic, comfortable, and 3″ heel, so not hard to walk in. It also comes in nude (wish I had gotten the nude now that I know how great they are!), and a cool print color. (Original price – $139.95; Anniversary price – 89.90).

The TopShop Duster was an impulse purchase at work. I saw a lot of my fellow friends and associates trying it on and buying it, so I of course, had to try it for myself. It looked a lot better on than I thought it would and it will look great over an all-black outfit to spice it up! (Original price – $110.00; Anniversary price – 69.90.)

I just received and tried on my 1.STATE ‘Sall’ Ankle Strap Open Toe Pump, and now I want the red pair too! They are pretty sexy shoes, and aside from needing a pedi, I thought they fit pretty well and were very comfortable. And the red pair isn’t a bright red, it’s a deep dark red color, which I like a lot better. Oh, decisions, decisions…..

This Vince Camuto Ruched Sleeve Stretch Blazer is fantastic! I was able to purchase this and so glad I did.. it’s so comfortable, can be dressed up or down, paired with a variety of tops, and fits so nicely (Original price – $129.00; Anniversary price – $85.90).
I also purchased the Halogen Basic Mock Neck Sleeveless Tops in red, ivory, and black. These are also great pieces and perfect for layering, and look great with the Vince Camuto Blazer! They are jersey material, light, fitted, and stretchy (Original price – $42.00; Anniversary price – $27.90). All items in the picture below are still available in select stores and online.

My Missed Out Items and Still Deciding Items:

These next 2 photos are items that I either missed out on (sold out), or haven’t decided on! I REALLY wanted the Chelsea28 Navy Corduroy Blazer (Original price – 99.00; Anniversary price – $65.90) and the Mural Drape Trench (Original price – $128; Anniversary price – $75.90). I missed out on those two items, as they both sold out quickly. And even though I am a Nordstrom Employee with a Nordstrom Credit Card (which you would think would get me first ‘dibs’), we are not allowed to purchase any Anniversary items until the sale opens to the public. So that is how I missed out on some of these fast-selling, popular items. I can’t complain though, because we do get a lot of other perks. The Mural Drape Jacket is back in stock though at its’ original price of $128!
The 1.STATE BOOTIES in all colors and styles are also on Anniversary, but I wasn’t CRAZY over any of them, so decided to pass on these. Plus, I think I’ve bought enough shoes to last me a while lol!

I love the 1901 Plaid Blazer and its a great price, but I may want to save for other items I want more in the future (Original price – $159.00; Anniversary price – $89.90). I’m also in love with the Ruby Red Theory Velvet Power Jacket, but my size is not available right now, and it still costs a lot, even at the Anniversary price, so I didn’t get that one, but I’m still going to my eye on it see if it goes on sale (Original price – $495.00; Anniversary price – 329.90). The Theory Off the Shoulder Blazer also looked very cool, but we didn’t have any in my store to try on, so I passed on that as well. But I did order both colors in the Spanx Pillow Cup Push Up Bras, and I love them! Read the reviews though and don’t size down on the band size or size up on the cup size. My normal size is a 32D, and they didn’t have a 30DD anyways, so I listened to all the reviewers and got my normal size and am very glad I did. Love these bras!

All in all, another great Nordstrom Anniversary Sale in the books! See you at next years’ 2019 Sale!
