When it comes to sales, I’m always trying to keep in mind that I shouldn’t buy anything that I wouldn’t consider buying full price. You don’t want to get stuck with the garage sale effect (where you buy the nicest thing there because it’s cheap, but you actually don’t really like it that much).

The Nordstrom sale gives you the opportunity to buy new items for everyday and for fall/winter. From brand new Rag & Bone booties to leather jackets to NARS makeup — there’s a little bit of everything. It’s a good time for you to take an inventory of what you have in your wardrobe and see what you are missing and then be on the lookout for those items. If you need help with this you can download my ebook THE LIFE EDIT.

I’m going to save you some of the trouble because I went through the entire sale already (womens, beauty, and home items) because I’m a Nordstrom Card holder, and I’m going to show you my picks tomorrow. But today I have my personal favorite picks. You can shop the sale now if you are a card holder (it’s easy to get a card). Then once all the card holders have had their time to shop, they open the sale up to everyone on July 22, and then prices go back up to regular prices on August 8.

Personally, I think it’s a great time to stock up on things like underwear and jeans, and nab an amazing coat or leather jacket, some boots, and a sweater or two for fall.
