Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

Revision 7/19/19

If you follow any blogger on Instagram you will know about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. IT IS EVERYWHERE. Last year I got a Nordstrom card because of the sale. With the card you get early access — which means I went a bit crazy on the checkout button.

I bought way more than what I’ll keep, and I bought various sizes to make sure that I have the proper size (a lot of these items will sell out quickly and if you need to exchange them, the size you need might not be in stock). I don’t have a Nordstrom store nearby, so I can’t try on in stores, so I’ll have to do them as they come. When I was buying I bought 1-2 items at a time to ensure I would get the size I wanted on the items I really wanted (and sometimes that means you still don’t get the size you want).

I am a medium or large in tops and pants. When in doubt I go up to a large, but with Nordstrom’s awesome return policy.

Below are the items that I have bought — I’ll do a try on session when I get them in of things I love and will keep!


ALLSAINTS Daisy Stripe Tee

I am returning the large, and as of now keeping the medium. I would say either could have worked, just depending how you like the fit.

Something Navy Puff Sleeve Tee

I did not keep this – very see through! Medium is the size I liked though (out of medium or large).

Something Navy Puff Sleeve Tee

I am keeping the medium in this top. Again, if you feel like you are between sizes, either might work. Everyone has a different preference in fit. I would say that if your a medium it is TTS, and probably same for large.

BP. Lace Trim Satin Camisole Top

I did not end up keeping this cami. My medium canceled (this can happen with the sale with the amount of people buying at the same time), and only a large was sent. I’m sure I could have made it work, but I had a similar cami that I got from H&M and brought to Europe. My H&M cami is probably not as high quality, but for the meantime, I am good not have this.

BP. Square Neck Long Sleeve Bodysuit

I should have ordered a medium, and I feel it would have been TTS. At times with bodysuits I like to order a size up.

1.STATE Button Front Blouse

This blouse is super cute that could be utilized for work or going out. I like the fit of the medium better, but either could have worked.


ASTR the Label Long Sleeve Square Neck Sweater

This sweater I was looking forward to the most, and I LOVE IT! I would say I’m ultimately between sizes and the large fits great.

Topshop Long Cardigan

This cardigan is super cozy, but is very oversized. I have ordered a small (since this is a medium) in the gray because the black is old out. Mostly just to see if I like the size better.

Topshop Oversized Mock Neck Sweatshirt

Not even worth sharing a try on. It’s not good.

Leith Rib Wrap Sweater

Wasn’t a huge fan of this wrap sweater. I felt that the wrap part of the sweater cut at an awkward spot.

Free People Softly Structured Knit Tunic

I love this ivory color, and I loved oversized sweaters. I ordered a medium in the same sweater (in red though) to see if I like the fit better. This sweater is still quite pricey, so not sure if I’ll keep yet.


Nordstrom High Waist Plaid Leggings

I ordered a medium and large. I felt the medium felt more TTS, but ultimately didn’t love these enough to keep.

Halogen High Waist Ponte Leggings

I’ve only received the large petite right now. Didn’t enjoy the fit. I have three other sizes coming, so will report back on the other sizes.


BP. Midi Slipdress

Unfortunately both the medium and large that I ordered were canceled!


Topshop Carly Coat

This coat is LARGE, and not in a good oversized way. I wore a 10 (which is a normal size for me), but ordered the 3 smaller sizes just now to see if I even like to fit. From photos it looks great.
