The hidden Nordstrom Sale no one talks about!

No one talks about the sale: Rails cardigan | Frame flare jeans | Stuart Weitzman boot | Naghedi tote

The hidden Nordstrom Sale no one talks about!

Plus … Friends & Family sale finds at Saks and Neiman Marcus 

If you’ve been a Nordstrom shopper for a long time, then you likely already know about price matching (or “limited-time sale” as it’s called now). This is when another retailer puts an item on sale, and then Nordstrom “price matches” it. I call it *hidden* because even though I’m a seasoned Nordstrom shopper, even I sometimes forget about it! That is, until I click on “sale” and discover 12,513 items that are being price matched. So, with that many choices, I tried to select the very best things for you all below.

When I was a Nordstrom Buyer, we were encouraged to shop the competition to make sure that we were always the lowest price in the market place. We even used to beat the competition by a dollar! These days, I would imagine it’s tricky to keep up on the competition, which is why they were a couple of days late reflecting the sale prices online. As I mentioned the other day, I’m not a big sale shopper, mainly because I believe in buying items when they’re right, not just because they’re on sale. However, I LOVE it when Nordstrom price matches, and right now it’s a total score if you’re a Nordstrom cardholder since it’s triple points.

P.S. The reason Nordstrom is “price-matching” is because Neiman Marcus, Frame Denim, and Saks are all having a Friends & Family Sale this weekend. Details: Nordstrom price-matching, Frame Denim sale (ends Sept 28), Neiman Marcus Friends & Family (ends 10/1 ), and Saks Friends & Family(ends 10/1).

And, if you need to pick up a few items, read this beauty post. Not all of my favorites are on sale, but I included them since they are everyday go-to’s.


All Time Fave: Vince


Left: Vince blouse | Mansur Gavriel bag | Middle: Vince sweater and slip skirt | Right: Vince blouse Vince is an all-time favorite brand, and the pieces are true modern classics that you’ll have for years. For example, the pieces in the above photos are pieces I’ve owned for a long time. Now is the time to pick up the slip dress or skirt, and any sweater you’ve had your eye on. It’s all so good!


Frame — best all around


Left: Frame top | White jeans | Slingbacks | Naghedi tote | Middle: Gillian blouse | Chloe tote | Frame denim | Right: Frame sweater | Frame skirt | Sandals | YSL bag

While shopping in Soho several weeks ago, I popped into the Frame store, and it was buzzing! Now is the best time to grab a sweater like the one I’m wearing, or maybe this best-selling puff sleeved blouse. I found the best selection at Nordstrom, the Frame store and Saks. Below are a few more items you might like.


Jackets & Blazers


Left: Rag & Bone tweed blazer | Jeans | Middle: Cinq a Sept hooded blazer (black not on sale) | Jeans | Right: Rag & Bone Ponte Slade blazer

The Cinq a Sept Khloe blazer has really been a fan favorite. Though black and ivory aren’t on sale, it’s still an excellent price on the other colors. Also, the Rag & Bone Ponte Slade blazer has been a top seller, and it’s definitely a great piece to own for fall.


Shoes and boots

Another perfect item to grab on sale! And, I noticed the the camel boot I absolutely love is still in stock — it’s a good one. This year, knee boots and pointy toes are trending, so it’s the ideal opportunity to give your closet an update!


Collections: Paige, Alice & Olivia, Rails


Left: Rails dress | Right: Alice & Olivia blouse

Paige, Alice & Olivia and Rails are among my favorite brands. Right now their collections look amazing … and they’re on sale! Best selection for Rails on sale — here. Top selection for Paigehere. Best selection for Alice & Oliviahere. See below for my picks.





Alice & Olivia


Denim favorites

If you’ve been thinking about a pair of jeans for Fall, now is the time to get them. There are brand new, in-season styles that I’m positive you’ll wear all year long. Click here to see the board I made for Saks — the selection there is amazing. For sale denim at Nordstrom, click here, and see below for a few other favorites.

Easy Dresses

By the sound of it, we all have places to go — now and in the coming months! Dresses are the easiest item to fall back on, and I always suggest adding a couple to your wardrobe so you’ll never be without an option.
