Nordstrom Anniversary Sale report ankle bootsNow that everyone has access to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I thought I’d report back on a few items I’ve checked out in person. As of last night when I was putting this post together, all of these were still available, though some sizes and colors may be limited. Remember that a lot of people shop with a wide net initially, and so if something you like isn’t available now, keep checking back as returns do happen.


I’ve always found this sale to have a great selection of boots, and several have caught my eye this year. Shown above, clockwise from top left:

  • Aquatalia. This bootie in weatherproof suede is really nice looking, and available in 3 colors. It does run 1/2 size smaller than most Aquatalia shoes, so be aware if you’re ordering online. Otherwise it’s a comfortable boot. The “chestnut” color is more chocolate and less reddish than it appears online, IMO.
  • Franco Sarto. I didn’t have a chance to try this one on, but it’s really cute, and a great price.
  • Pikolinos. Because this boot is water-resistant, I was surprised at how light and soft the leather was. Heel isn’t too high, and I love the tassel. It’s available in 4 colors. It runs a size small.
  • AGL. I love the sleek look of this boot, and the grey color (also available in black). Per the description it runs 1/2 size small. I usually take a 7 or 7.5, and the 7.5 was a good fit.

Cole Haan Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I’d somehow missed this cute leopard pump until I saw it on the sale table. It’s sold out in all but a couple of sizes, but again, may become more available as people make returns. If you like the shape but aren’t into leopard, here’s the same style in black, metallic and snakeprint.


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale HalogenQuite frankly, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and heft of the merino wool fabric on this Halogen cardigan. I’ve purchased one for myself as it should be an excellent piece for travel. It’s available in several colors and patterns, as well as in Plus.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale NYDJ

The fabric on these NYDJ “Ami” jeans is really soft, and the brandy color is a great goes-with-everything option for fall. For a similar color and a slightly more relaxed fit, try these from rag & bone/JEAN.


Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Vince Camuto

This Vince Camuto leopard bag is super cute, has interior organization and an outside zippered pocket on the back. Win-win-win!Nordstrom Anniversary Sale All Saints

The color on this All Saints tote is rich and on-trend for fall. But there are brains here as well as beauty: interior organization and the outside pocket snaps shut.

I have a few items on order that weren’t available in my local stores, so will report back once I have those in hand. Please check out my SHOP page for links to all of my picks from the sale, and do check back as I’ll continue to update over the next few days.
