Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021

A very raw pic of myself picking up my Nordstrom order

Hi everyone, welcome back to another blog post! Trust me the wait is worth it for this one, it is 💛NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE TIME!💛 Keep reading to find out all the things you need to know:

The Basics:

This is it, the time has finally come, it is time for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale aka NSale! This sale is seriously like Christmas in July 🎄. When my boyfriend asked me last year when the sale started, what the big deal was? I answered, this sale is like the Super Bowl of sales.🏈 It is, personally, the sale of the year. Okay for those of you who think that I’m being ~dramatic~ thats fine, but let me explain to you why this is the sale of all sales…

When most people (including myself) hear the words sales, the first thought is whatever season you are in is about to end. Usually most sales are supposed to get rid of the clothes on the shelf in order to make room for the next season of clothes. What sets the NSale apart is that the items that are included are the new fall/winter clothes of that year being put on sale before they are even able to be shopped. Once the sale ends, those pieces will all go back to full price and will be *currently in season. This is basically unheard of, except for when it comes to Nordstrom. 🛍

Let’s get down to the nitty gritty now. The NSale has several tiers that it opens up in. It begins with early access on July 12th with subsequent phases of cardholder statuses. The sale then opens up to the public on July 28th (tomorrow!) where anyone and everyone can take advantage of the sale prices for the upcoming seasons. All Nordstrom credit card holders automatically get early access. The following schedule is how the 2021 NSale is operating and when every tiered status can begin shopping:

Icon status: July 12, 2021

Ambassador status: July 14, 2021

Influencer status: July 16, 2021

NSale opens up to the public on July 28, 2021

The sale will be in-store during open hours and will begin online at 12am PST/3am EST. I also wanted to mention that you can easily make a wishlist if you sign up/in to your Nordstrom account, PRO TIP. This is so helpful when shopping so that you are fully aware of what you are looking for and tracking for restocks. Some of the items I have included in this blog post are currently sold out however, if it is on your wishlist, you will be notified when it is restocked in the size/colour you wanted. Be sure to keep an eye out for restocks and new items they sometimes throw into the sale when it opens to the public.

Restocked Purchases From Last Year:

Steve Madden Chain Mule: This mule is currently an upgraded version of the Steve Madden mule from last year! I got the turquoise croc leather last year with a smaller chain. I like to pick different colours in these mules so that I bring a bit of diversity into my shoe collection. This year my eyes are set on the pink and navy tweed. The tan and brown versions are easily the most popular and versatile for the fall though. I sized up 1/2 a size last year to accommodate for the very pointed toe. This year I am going to try on my true size 5 and see how they feel since I tried the 5.5 and they were too big on me.

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings: Last year, I bought my first pair of Spanx leggings and omg I don’t know how I waited so long! They go with everything and can really elevate any look in the colder months. I also love that they include petite sizes in the sale. I have them in a petite small and they fit perfectly.

Moonlight Short Pajamas: I bought these as a matching set for me and my mom last year. They are so soft and comfortable that I ordered both of us another set this year. I have the black set and I got her the navy set. I wear a small in these.

Blank NYC Faux Leather Moto Jacket: The NSale is a great time to look at jackets. This is when the largest discount will be applied before the fall starts. Last year’s version had a faux fur detachable piece to it but this year the black moto jacket is much more classic and an awesome piece to snag. I ordered a small last year.

Steve Madden Bootie: This bootie is similar to the ones I bought last year with just minor differences. However the block heel is the same and the deep ankle cuts are so flattering on the leg! It definitley elongates the leg and it’s very easy to throw on a pair of no-show socks for comfort. I sized up 1/2 a size last year to accommodate for socks. This year I am going to try on my true size 5 and see how they feel.


These are the shoes that I currently have on my wishlist. Wish I could say that I wasn’t planning on buying all of them and trying them on but then I’d be lying.🤪 If you couldn’t tell, the shoes get me every year without fail. TTS=true to size

I hope you’re as excited as I am for the NSale! While I know that all of this information can be overwhelming, I truly look forward to this sale every year. Part of the reason why is because I grew up shopping at Nordstrom and the NSale with my mom all the time. I remember the beautiful racks of shoes, coats, and the fun Nordstrom cafe we would stop for a kids hot chocolate during our shopping trips. Part of shopping the NSale is nostalgia but it is also because I love to look and try on the new fashions trends. While summer is indeed my favourite season, nothing ever comes close to fall fashion! If there is anything in particular you have your eye on during the sale, let me know! Additionally, if there are further questions about logistics, feel free to message me or you can find additional Nordstrom information here.

Happy Shopping- tell me what is in your cart this year! Thanks for following along with me on the blog 🤍
