While we would love to snag a pair of Good American jeans or a coat for fall, sometimes our budget (is it payday yet?) doesn’t allow for it. But that doesn’t mean you can’t still score big at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale. Here, we’ve rounded up our picks for shopping the sale on a serious budget. Win, win.


Get These Before They’re Gone:

Items in the Nordstrom Sale are known to sell out quickly, and these are some of our favorite items in the sale. Add these to cart ASAP!

Sam Edelman


A high-quality pair of sneakers for less than $50? Color us shocked. Our fashion editor has been sneaking these into our content for years because they're a classic sneaker that won't fall apart after only a few wears. These will be a sale purchase you're obsessed with for years to come.

Thread & Supply

Shirt Jacket

You always need those "throw-on" pieces in the fall and winter for both warmth and that cute, layered look, and this one is already flying off the shelves. It's a classic shape you can put on over a pair of jeans or even your fall dresses and skirts to make them more casual. Plus, we love this blue hue—it adds a bit of brightness to your otherwise dark fall color palettes.

True & Co.

V-Neck Bralette

One of the worst parts of adulthood is realizing that not only are bras super expensive, but also that finding one that fits you well is near impossible. After testing a bunch of bras, the best bra our editor tried was from True&Co. It's outrageously comfortable thanks to the fabric and wire-free construction, but it still offers the support you need from a daily bra. You'll never reach for another bra again.

Paula's Choice

Jumbo Skin Perfecting Exfoliant

This exfoliator is known for smoothening texture, diminishing blackheads, and fading dark spots, hence why our editor loves it. You won't run out of this jumbo product anytime soon, which also saves you $20.

In Our Carts: 

BDG Urban Outfitters

Half Zip Sweater

Hello cozy sweater #8371731—yes, I do also need you. The half-zip aspect makes the sweater more casual, so it's perfect to wear with leggings and Uggs when you're meeting up with your friends on the weekends or with jeans in a casual office.

Free People

Knit Sweater

There's no such thing as a closet with too many knits, and you'll feel like a baller getting this Free People sweater at such a deal. This is the perfect fall piece to pair with leggings, skirts, and jeans for every single occasion.


Slub Top

A slub top like this is the best of both worlds: It looks professional and put together, but in reality, it's really just your classic white tee. Get ready to wear this to work multiple days a week.


Ripped Straight Leg Jeans

Yep, we found a pair of trendy, editor-loved jeans for less than $50. These are that classic, '90s straight leg style our editors have been raving about for months, plus it has fun distressing on the knees.


Jogger Pants

And for the days you want nothing more than to lounge around, a good pair of joggers will take you from the couch to grabbing takeout from the door to FaceTiming with your mom without a second thought. They're made of a soft material that's airy for those early fall days but warm enough for the depths of winter.


Cubic Zirconia Earrings

Our editor bought these for her mom's birthday last year, and they were a total hit. These look way nicer than what they cost, so it's that ideal "nobody's gonna know" moment when you hand them over and someone thinks they're getting a fancy gift when it actually cost you less than $25. Do yourself a favor and buy a few to keep in your gift arsenal.


Polished & Pavé Hoop Earrings

Our editors rant and rave about the importance of having a good pair of gold hoops in your jewelry collection because they go with literally every single outfit under the sun, and with this set, you get your perfect gold hoops plus a fun pair for special occasions.

Chinese Laundry

Slide Sandal

Everyone needs a heeled mule in their shoe collection. It'll take you from shopping to date night to the office to happy hour, making it one of the most versatile shoes in your closet. This sandal comes in three classic colors, so no matter your style, you'll find one that matches.


Chelsea Boot

Fall's biggest trend might just be lug-sole boots like these, so if you want to try the trend without spending a fortune, look no further. These will take you from walking through the sun to all of your events without having to change—total win.


Leather Card Case

Hello, major deal alert‼️ This luxury leather card case clocks in right under budget but still has that wow factor. It comes in two shades, this light tan croc and a gorgeous cherry brown, so it would be the perfect gift for everyone in your life and pair well with every bag in your collection.


Faux Fur Slipper

It's about to be the season of the slipper, and we're still not over these crossed faux fur slippers. They're so comfortable, look cute, and have lasted for a few winters. There's nothing better than waking up on a cold morning and slipping these on your feet.

Serene House

Ultrasonic Aroma Diffuser

Ready to fill your house with warm, cozy scents as much as we are? We're all adding diffusers to our homes—whether it's on our desks, nightstands, or bathrooms—to make our homes smell good and feel even more relaxing.


Washable Cosmetic Cloths

Stop wasting money and causing unnecessary waste with disposable cotton pads and invest in these instead. They're a soft cotton that won't shed all over your face or absorb all of your products, and you can pop them right into the washer once a week with your laundry.


Sunset Hair Tie Set

No matter your hair length, silk hair ties will change your life. They are easy to remove on curly hair, cause less breakage for fine hair, and are strong enough to hold medium to thick hair too. Silk is so much gentler than harsh elastics and hair ties—so much that a few months after the switch, our editor noticed all that breakage at the back of her head was practically gone.


Jumbo Self-Tan Classic Bronzing Mousse

Just because it's about to be fall and winter doesn't mean you can't try for that gorgeous golden glow you love in the summer. This one from St. Tropez, a natural-looking tan for light to medium skin tones and a glowy skin tone enhancer on deeper skin, will last you until next summer, no doubt.

Laura Mercier

Translucent Loose Setting Powder Duo

The loose powder that took over the beauty industry continues to be a favorite for its ability to set your makeup and keep it looking flawless all day long. Now that we're finally wearing makeup for more than just Zoom calls, a product to keep your makeup in place is a necessary next makeup purchase, and this one comes at a fantastic deal.
