Every year, Nordstrom holds their own Christmas in July event called the Anniversary Sale. There, they round up a bunch of fall clothing, handbags, accessories, shoes, beauty products and much more, and sell it all for a great price.
These sales mean two things:
1) Great prices
2) buying things you don’t really need.
With that being said, I really focused on what I was buying. Leather leggings for about $60? YES! But, no. I’ll wear them twice and then they’ll sit in my closet forever. Frye boots for $259.90? ALL IN. Why? Because the price is great, I threw my other riding boots out after the bottom cracked. What I’m trying to say is that the Anniversary Sale is a great time to buy investment pieces for a low price, wear them for years and never feel the ‘designer guilt’ that is often associated with high-end purchases. Here’s what I got:
Nike ‘Free TR Connect 2’ Training Shoe $72.90
I haven’t bought tennis shoes in 2 years. My first pair of Nike Frees were starting to wear on the bottom and I was definitely feeling it while working out. To take my neon beauties’ place, I got these. Originally priced $110, I feel secure saying that I got a deal.
Frye ‘Phillip’ Riding Boot $259.90
I had no intentions of buying boots any time soon when I heard about the anniversary sale. However, when I finally got the catalog and saw boots everywhere, I thought that it was better now than never to replace my brown riding boots. While Tory Burch had some contenders in my search for new boots during the sale, the authentic, less structured and cooler Frye boots won my heart. I’ve loved Frye since one of my favorite (and now retired) bloggers, Casey, was constantly writing about hers. These have an original price tag of $387.95, I saved on these.
CLARISONIC ‘Mia 2’ Sonic Skin Cleansing System $149
This wasn’t my safest purchase. I heard so many mixed reviews about it and was always afraid of the price. However, my skin was seriously bugging me, I had it with break outs and blackheads. With a carry case, travel bag, cleanser and extra brush head included along with the Mia 2, this purchase was a great deal. My personal shopper assured me that if I totally hated it, I can return it. I’ve been using it for 2 weeks and am so happy with it. It gets my makeup ALL the way off and eliminated dead skin, practically all of my blackheads and has made my skin so much less oily. I’m impressed, to say the least.
While I limited myself during the sale, I picked out a few more things that I thought were great deals for you to scoop up before the sale ends in a few days. Head over to Nordstrom to see what’s left and remember to #nsale on social media to share your posts with fellows Nordy Girls and Guys.
