Happy Monday, everyone! Today I have a super fun, jam-packed post to share with you all!
Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited to a blogger happy hour at Nordstrom to hang with other local fashionable ladies, get a sneak preview of the annual Anniversary Sale, and to blog about our experience. I’m a thrifty bitch who loves drooling over fancy designer duds–that I usually can’t afford–also, um, yes, happy hour! I had a blast and met some super sweet, gorgeous babes who I hope to stay in contact with via their blogs!
I hadn’t heard of the Anniversary Sale before the event, so here’s the deal:
The sale is the biggest of the year, held every July, and is super special because it’s not your average clearance sale–everything marked down is shiny new Fall merchandise! So not only are you getting 30% off everything from women’s wear to handbags to shoes to beauty products, but you’re getting them before anyone else can buy them anywhere! It’s a really fun sneak peek at the coming season’s swag and an opportunity to snag deals before your size disappears!
Here I am with the lovely Danyelle from The Cubicle Chick.
After happy hour, we got fun little tours of each of the tents! It felt really fancy getting to go in each tent and explore.
So glad cutesy animal sweaters are back again this year! <3
Oh goddd, the handbags are my always my favorite part of browsing at Nordstrom! These Dooney & Burke and Kate Spade bags were my favorite sale items in the entire set-up! Dying for them.
It was love at first sight with this gorgeous pink skirt! As soon as I saw from across the room how well it held up it’s perfect shape, even on the hanger, I flew towards it. The fabric was thick and luxurious feeling, but unfortunately my size was already gone. :(

The beautiful lady in the background of so many of these photos is Kate from Joy and Cake! Haha.
Ugh, Nordstrom already has me dreaming of boots in July! I love the gold detail on this pair.
You can also get awesome deals on make-up, perfume, and other fancy beauty products!

If you’re a Nordstrom card holder or Fashion Rewards member, you already have early access to the sale tents at your local store! You can even shop the sale online here! If you’re just a normal gal–like me–you can check everything out for yourself from July 19-August 4. Prices only last two weeks and all Anniversary Sale merchandise will return to full price on August 5!
*Just to reiterate/clarify, I was invited to preview and promote the Anniversary Sale at an exclusive happy hour with Nordstrom and was not compensated in any other way.
*The animated GIF at the top of the post was made by me. Had way too much fun with that one. 8)
