It's here! The Nordstrom Anniversary sale has started! Technically, it's only open to cardholders now, and opens to the public on July 20th. But don't fret: I've shopped this sale many many times (even before I was a cardholder), and I can assure you that while not everything you have your eye on will still be available, plenty gets restocked and added throughout the course of the sale. There's an enormous selection of items.

This sale is where I go crazy. There's a reason why everyone loves it: all the items are either current or for the upcoming seasons, so instead of buying things to wear the following year at a discounted price, you're getting stuff that you can wear now. While some people only like to take advantage of the sale to stock up on staples or only investment pieces, I like to tackle both. Why not snag up things that I would purchase regardless at 40% off? And how could I pass up a designer piece at a discount?

I was thrilled to have been able to shop everything on July 11th, a perk of being a level 4 member. Below are the items that I have picked up from the sale. I bought a few things in store, but the bulk of my purchases are getting shipped to me. Now the waiting game begins...
