Ah, Nordstrom. It’s a beautiful place. I think that one of the many things that people love about Nordstrom is that they have one of the best selections of both high and low items of any department store/e-tailer on the planet. So it’s very feasible to add a $30 top and the latest designer It bag into your cart in one sitting. And as you know, Nordstrom has some really epic sales, that have thousands of items marked down and typically last for at least a week. And luckily for us, the latest one—the Nordstrom Fall Sale—just launched, with tons of current-season items marked down by as much as 40% until November 17.
I’m well aware that a good sale can be thoroughly overwhelming, but my strategy for tackling them is simple. First I search for the high-end items I’ve had my eye on all season (to see if they’re finally marked down), and then I start exploring the “cheap thrills”, to stock up on basics like denim and turtlenecks. That’s exactly what I did here, so in case you don’t have time to weed through thousands of items like I did, scroll away! First up: My favorite splurge items, followed by the cheap thrills I’m losing it over.
