What Our Editors Are Buying From The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

The Everygirl’s product selections are curated by the editorial team. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. We only recommend products we genuinely love.

If you haven’t heard by now, the best sale of the year is here and in full-swing (but you probably have because our editors have been yelling it from the rooftops for days now). Yes, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here—and if you haven’t already, it’s time to figure out what you want to add to your cart before it sells out.

Every year, the Nordstrom Sale is marked on our editors’ calendars and circled in red marker because we know that it’s our opportunity to add the pieces of our dreams to our wardrobes at majorly discounted prices (and that they won’t be in stock for long). We scour every page of the sale, write down our wishlists, and do everything in our power to get our hands on the things we want before they’re gone.

This year, we’ve made purchases we’re very excited about, and we don’t want to keep the news to ourselves. From full-size beauty sets at unbelievable prices to jackets we’re planning on living in this fall, these are the pieces our editors purchased (or have in our carts) from this year’s sale. Trust us, you don’t want to miss out on them.

Oribe Dry Shampoo & Dry Texturizing Spray Full-Size Set, $64

As someone with thin hair who is constantly pining over Gisele-level locks, I have tried every dry shampoo and texture spray out there. Oribe texture spray is by far the best at giving me tousled volume and the I-Woke-Up-Like-This texture (you know what I’m talking about) while still leaving my hair soft and touchable. The dry shampoo is also truly a game-changer for my hair routine because I spray it before bed or in the morning days after I blow dry, and it looks like I just got a fresh blowout. I call them both miracle products, but I often settle for not-as-great options because Oribe is so expensive. I’m taking full advantage of the Nordstrom sale to stock up on two bottles for basically the price of one. Your hair will never look better (at such an affordable price!)

Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cleanser Set, $88

The Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser and Ultra Facial Cream are already a part of my daily skincare routine, and I love how simple and nourishing these products are. I'm going to use the Nordstrom sale to stock up on my favorite products to save some money the next time I run out.

Le Labo

Santal 26 Votive Set

I’m all about any candle that makes me feel like my home is a luxury resort, so it’s no surprise my eyes zeroed in on this votive set. The concrete vessel adds a chic, industrial touch and can make for cute decor once the candle runs out.

T3 1.25-Inch Curling Iron, $99

I recently went on vacation with a whole gaggle of girlfriends, and one friend brought a 1.25-inch curling iron. I'm a firm believer in my 1-inch, but I decided to try it because it was already plugged in and hot. Since then, I’ve been researching and wanting to order a bigger iron because I loved the soft waves it gave my medium-length, fine hair. I swear by my T3 blow dryer, so I already know I love their technology and that it’s high quality. This is an incredible deal that I don’t want to miss.

AllSaints Leather Card Case, $45

I've had the same wallet since I was 20 years old. It was once a white, simple card case that has now become tattered and so stretched out that my cards easily slip out (I mean, the wallet was about $15, so I’m impressed it even lasted this long). I know a nice wallet is one of those "adult purchases" that just has to happen at some point, so the Nordstrom Sale would be the best time to find a grown-up and chic wallet, maybe even from a cool AF brand (you know, the kind I wouldn’t pay full price for but endlessly wish I could). This camel croc printed card case has been on my list since Nordstrom announced the sale’s lineup this year because it’s timeless, stylish, and affordable. This is totally going to update my bag for fall 2021 and beyond.

Ugg Shearling Slippers, $69

Since working from home, I’ve become super into slippers. Last fall, I decided it was time to stop constantly buying $20 pairs that fall apart after a couple of months and get myself a nice pair. I never pulled the trigger, but I knew that this sale was finally my excuse to. These slippers are one of those little things that just spark joy every day, and I’ve already been wearing them even though it’s 90 degrees here. Uggs rarely go on sale, so this is a great time to purchase these—and with all the colors they come in, you’ll be sure to find a pair that you love.

Converse Platform High-Tops, $59

We’ve seen it all over Instagram—Converse are back and one of the hottest shoes you can get your hands on this year. I think this pair has the same great, classic look as the original high-tops, but the leather adds an elevated touch. I’m excited to wear them to day and night outings all fall. Plus, as someone on the shorter side, I’m all about the additional height that the platform is going to give me.

Alo Biker Shorts, $36

I take full advantage of purchasing activewear that has been on my wishlist whenever a sale comes around. Alo is super comfy, whether I’m taking a brisk walk or in a hot yoga sesh, and I'm obsessed with how flattering their shorts always are. Adding color back into my wardrobe has also been one of my goals for this year, and this pink is super fun and bright and makes me excited to work out.

Levi's 501 Straight-Leg Jeans, $58

Look, I’m not here to make friends, I’m here to find jeans for life. I’m happy to report that Levi’s never disappoints and are made to last. I'm obsessed with the straight-leg fit of these. They're also perfect for when you’re going out, and I love anything that I can feel comfortable in all night long.

Suede Moto Jacket, $99

The Nordstrom sale is my favorite time to purchase higher-ticket items that I normally wouldn’t even consider. Sure, this moto jacket at full-price wouldn’t be the most expensive thing I’ve ever purchased, but I’d go back and forth on it for a long time before taking the plunge. At almost $100 off, I didn’t even think twice about adding it to my cart. It’s a classic cut and staple color that I know I’ll wear literally all the time. The best part? I’ll never have to worry about it going out of style. I’m looking forward to this jacket being a staple in my wardrobe for years to come.

Plaid Teddy Jacket, $99

I’m at the point in my life where my wardrobe is pretty covered in the “basics” department, which means that when I’m shopping now, I’m looking for pieces that pack a bit more of a punch. I wore my lighter-weight teddy coat all fall last year and absolutely loved the idea of having this purple one in my arsenal. I sized up and got a medium, and it’s perfectly boxy and cozy. I wish it was already fall so I could get to wearing it every single day.

– Madeline Galassi, Fashion Content Manager & Associate Editor

Originally $69

Double Breasted Blazer, $45

I’m here for all the blazer looks: over a T-shirt and jeans for work, a sexy top for nights out, or biker shorts and a sports bra for a trendy, street-style look. I think this blazer is versatile enough for all of them. I don’t have a pinstripe blazer that I love yet, so I'm excited to give this one a try.

The North Face Parka, $224

A few years ago, I moved down to South Carolina and donated all of my winter clothes, swearing up and down I would never move back to Chicago. But in April, I moved back. Now that winter weather is quickly approaching (I’m quite stressed about it already), I need to add a heavy-duty winter coat to my closet. I’m convinced that this Nordstrom one is the best bet I have at fighting off the cold.

Puffer Jacket, $119

I somehow survived winter 2020 without a puffer coat, and while I'm here to tell the tale, I know I need one going into winter 2021. The reason I never bought one last year was because I could never find anything I loved. I wanted something short, warm-but-not-hot (I get very sweaty, what can I say), and that had a hood for snowy days. Then, as I perused the Nordstrom sale, I found this, and it was love at first sight. I tried it on in the store and it fits true-to-size with a little extra room for sweaters or cardigans. I also love that this is water repellant—snow days, here I come!
