Have you taken advantage of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale yet?  The Sale goes through August 5th and then prices will jump back up! Eek! Things are flying off the shelves online and in the stores. They sometimes restock so keep an eye out on the things you love. This year’s sale has been CRAZY!  I can’t believe how quickly things sold out even before the sale went public.

The best way to get sold out items is to bookmark your favorites on the computer and check it early in the morning and periodically throughout the day. Checking frequently is the key!

Here is what I tried on and what I bought with details on how everything fits.


As you know I am a big Kendra Scott fan, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale lets you get ahold of some the fall pieces (on sale!!) before they are available at the Kendra store. They have some really awesome pieces and honestly, I wanted all of them. I bought 2 pairs of earrings and a bracelet. This earring shape is one of the new classic styles from Kendra Scott called the Kristen (great name right?!). I have a necklace in this shape that is also part of the sale. It has a nice adjustable back so you wear it short or long.

Kendra Scott Kristen Drop Earrings

Sale: $42.90
After Sale: $65.00
Verdict: I would recommend these earrings. They are lightweight and are super cute.
I also purchased a Kendra Scott Gilly Bracelet in gold. It is also adjustable and easy to wear! It comes in gold, silver and rose gold. I am tempted to get all 3 colors so I can layer them. At $35.90, this is a nice price point for a gift.

Kendra Scott Gilly Bracelet

Sale: $35.90
After Sale: $55.00
Verdict: I would this beautiful bracelet. It is easy to put on and will look good with lots of outfits.
Voluspa Candles Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Kids Shoes (1 of 1)
These cute candles come in a 3 pack and are from Valuspa. The set that I bought has Prosecco Bellini, Macaron, and Saijo Persimmon. The collection scents are made from pure essential oils, a coconut wax blend and a natural wick for a clean, fragrant burn with every light.

The other Voluspa set is the same price ($15.90 for the set of 3) and has the fragrances:

  • Crisp Champagne: featuring notes of sparkling brut champagne, vanilla and barrel oak.
  • Mandarino Cannela: featuring notes of Italian mandarin orange, vanilla cinnamon, nutmeg and stem ginger.
  • Pomegranate Blood Orange: featuring notes of ripe pomegranate, ruby blood orange rind, nectarine wedges and brut champagne.

They come in The smell fantastic and look super cute on a coffee table. You can give them as give as a group or break up the set and add it as part of a bigger gift.

Voluspa Candles Mini (3 Pack)

Sale: $15.90
After Sale: $24.00
Verdict: These candles smell amazing and they are so stinkin cute.
This week I went shopping for mascara and Sephora was out of my favorite mascara Monsieur Big from Lancome. Lucky for me because I was able to get this amazing deal on mascara that will probably last me until next year. The Best of Lancôme Lashes Mascara Set comes with a full-size Monsieur Big mascara, the new waterproof version of Monsieur, and the full-size Definicils high definition mascara with a full-size Cils Booster XL Super-Enhancing Mascara Base to help condition your lashes before you put the mascara on or as a lash mask at night time.

The Best of Lancôme Lashes Mascara Set also comes with Bi-Facil Double-Action Eye Makeup Remover. This is the best eye makeup remover I have ever used. It gets all my mascara off!

The Mascara Set also came with a gift with even more mascara and makeup remover! Love it! You get to pick which moisturizer and cream that works best for you.

The Best of Lancôme Lashes Mascara Set

Sale: $59.50
After Sale: $95.00
Verdict: This set is a great deal and so happy I bought it!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Kids
My daughter came shopping with me and we decided to stock up on shoes. I bought her a pair of sandals for summer that matches my favorite sandals. All the shoes we chose have glitter. My daughter is a big fan of glitter! These are all great deals!

Verdict: My daughter insisted on these shoes. These are her first ballet flat. They run big so size down.

Steve Madden Glitter Sandals

  1. i was very excited about the Nordstrom Anniversary PRE-Sale, where you’re supposed to get exclusive access to sale items a week earlier if you’re a Nordstrom card holder. I was a bit disappointed when i went and no one checked to see if i had a Nordstrom card when i entered the secured areas. Now, maybe they wouldn’t have let me purchase things if I didn’t have a card. But still, i was looking forward to the exclusivity rush of someone being denied access while i was ushered in like the VIP I know I am.
