How To Shop Nordstrom Sale

1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7 / 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12
As any fashionista, I LOVE  good sale and Nordstrom has a great one going on right now. The Nordstrom Half Yearly sale is one of their biggest sales of the year if you don't count the holidays. And the discounts are pretty good, with Rebecca Minkoff bags under $100 (like this one 50% OFF) and Kate Spade sunglasses under $100.  I especially can't stop looking at the dresses and (might have) gotten one (which already sold out). Here are some of my tips for shopping this giant sale.

1. Shop Early. Don't wait until last minute to find that gorgeous bag because the chances are it will sell out very soon. With the prices that are 40-50% OFF regular retail, it's hard to hold off on buying something you've been wanting for a while.

2. Know What You Want/Need. There are over 50 pages of the sale and if you try to look through all of it, you will be wasting your time and won't be able to narrow things down. Be precise in what you want and look it. That will help you skim through the rest of the stuff.

3. Filter You Search. When you know exactly what you want, set the price, color and brand filters for the item of your choice. That way you can get more shopping done in shorter amount of time. If you want wedges, don't waste your time for looking at flats. They have very good search optimization filters which work for you when shopping for specific item.

4. Shop Smart. With free shipping and returns, if you aren't sure about exact sizing of something, just order both sizes. When it arrives try it on and send the unwanted, ill-fitting item bag. The same goes even for handbags and accessories. Not sure which color to get? Order both and decide later. After all, you don't want to miss out on a great deal.

5. Stock Up On Basics. Things like denim and basic white shirt will never go out of style so double up when getting your favorites. If you know the brand and have worn it (and LOVE it) get more than one. After all, you can always return it.

Blue Maxi Maternity Style

dress: TJMaxx  (similar)
sunglasses: Choies c/o
watch: Kate Spade
bag: Amazon
sandals: BCBG (similar)
After I post this dress on Instagram, I haven't had a chance to photograph it. I have been wearing it a lot and just can't stop. It's super comfortable, it hides the imperfections (hello expanding bottom) and keeps you cool at the same time. I couldn't find exact one so I linked up a lot of similar options. We HAD gorgeous weather all last week into the weekend and now it's looking like it's time to take out those winter boots. Hope you are enjoying the weather while it lasts!
