Susie’s top 10 picks: Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!

I love helping my dear friends and clients select the very best items on the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. After all, it can be a little overwhelming (and exciting) because, well … we all love a good deal. So check your closets and see what you need — then get ready to have some fun!

Why is the Anniversary Sale a big deal? Because it’s brand new fall merchandise, on sale before the season even starts, and it gets marked back up in a few weeks. So, now is the time to buy the main pieces of your fall wardrobe!

The #1 strategy is to focus on those items that are most likely to sell out. Some customer favorites literally sell out the first day, and sometimes they don’t get restocked. Today’s post is about the top 10 items I think are worth grabbing before they’re gone. Don’t wait … buy them as soon as you can!

By the way, everyone is asking me how they can shop online and make sure I get the credit. I really appreciate this, thank you so much! You simply click on this Nordstrom link, or any clickable link below, and shop away!!


#1 Favorite Denim

Denim is always a great buy on the Anniversary sale, and the good news is, this year the selection is REALLY GREAT! All the styles below are tried and true, so you can’t go wrong. These are jeans you’ll year all the time from here on out, so stock up and you’ll be really happy you did!

Top row: Mother crop skinny, Mother Insider crop fray, Mother crop skinny and Mother Hustler ankle flare

Middle row: Paige Cindy straight leg, Paige Verdugo crop skinny, Paige Sarah slim straight, Paige Cindy straight leg

Bottom row: Frame Le High straight leg, Frame Le Sylvie straight leg, Frame Le High skinny crop and Frame Le Garcon boyfriend


#2 Vince collection

Left: Cardigan | Stripe tee | Dress | Sweater | Right: Cable sweater | Bomber jacket | Dress | Cream sweater | Pink sweater

Vince is always a favorite, and this year my top categories are sweaters and dresses! The dresses are perfect to buy and wear now, and I love this one and this one. If you don’t already own this crop legging, now is the perfect time to try it because it’s SO GOOD. It’s not on sale, but it’ll go with every single thing you own. I also love this Vince jacket, this sneaker, and this silk top and skirt.






#3 AllSaints

Allsaints “Dalby” leather jacket | Paige “Cindy” – similar here | Cami NYC | Similar Sandals | Fendi tote, older

AllSaints is always a favorite brand, and their leather jackets are the best. They can be a little spendy though, so NOW is the time to buy one … and you gotta act quickly because they sell out every year! Their sweaters are also super cool and a little edgy, which makes them extra stylish with denim. Try this asymmetrical style — it adds interest to your denim and booties. Other top sellers include this style and this one, and this jacket is super cute too.

#4 Paige collection

Cami | Denim | Black blouse | Seafoam sweater | Denim | Blue print blouse | Bootie

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know my love for the Paige brand, both denim and sportswear. This year I recommend everything in the photo above (side note: I never show anything I don’t love)! I predict both blouses and the cami will sell out, and so will the jeans. This sweater is the prettiest color and is a tiny bit sexy. Grab it while you can!



#5 Fall/Winter Coats

Coats are one of the single best things to grab on this sale when you find one you like. The prices are incredible — not that different from when I was a coat buyer several decades ago 🙂 Last year, this Halogen one sold out, so don’t wait! There’s everything from puffers to cool leather coats to faux fur. And, the belted coat is super stylish and most everyone can wear it!

Row 1: Metallic puffer, Black puffer, Beige puffer and Faux leather puffer

Row 2: Black leather, Suede leather, Burgundy leather and Suede leather

Row 3: Black jacket, Cream jacket, Black jacket and Black vest

Row 4: Lilac coat, Burgundy coat, Cream coat, Blush pink coat



#6 Sparkly jewelry

A couple of years ago, I bought this Poppy Finch necklace at the Anniversary Sale and I’ve worn it almost every day since. Here’s a bracelet I love this year — it’s beautiful! Also, if you want to splurge on a Michele watch, now’s your chance. I’ve worn mine DAILY for the last 8 + years, and I still absolutely love it!

#7 Best of shoes

I’m pretty picky when it comes to shoes, and believe in purchasing things like boots carefully since the season is still a couple of months away. Some favorites include Stuart Weitzman over-the-knee boots (these and these,) Paul Green (these and these), and these Rag & Bones — they’re amazing!

Row 1: Frame sandal, Jenni Kayne mule and Stuart Weitzman slide

Row 2: Aquatalia black boot, Paul Green suede boot, and Schutz boot

Row 3: Schutz bootie, Rag & Bone bootie, Paul Green bootie

Row 4: Stuart Weitzman OTK boot, Vince boot and Stuart Weitzman OTK boot



#8 Barefoot Dreams

Barefoot Dreams cardigans might be about the coziest loungewear pieces you’ll ever find. These always sell out, as do these equally cozy blankets. Stock up now for gifts, because everyone loves them!




#9 Beauty Exclusives

While I have A LOT of beauty favorites to share with you, here’s a short list. (Check in tomorrow and the next day when I’ll be sharing more finds.) For now, start with the Diptyque candle set, it’s the perfect time to try out several scents and these make the perfect gifts. These sets sell out EVERY YEAR! Same with this Charlotte Tilbury Pillowtalk kit. Don’t wait 😊



#10 Workout Favorites

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13


Athletic wear companies are always coming up with enhanced designs and better fabrics, and sometimes a new piece or two can be just the inspiration you need to get you moving again. Now is the time to pick them up, so you can be comfy AND look good while you work out! The style board above is a good place to start.
