Beauty

Nordstrom’s Annual Anniversary Sale is right around the corner, and I’m sure I am not the only one who is super ecstatic, yet slightly overwhelmed. The sale is HUGE and takes a unique approach. Unlike most sales, which typically discount in-season or post-season merchandise, this sale offers deep discounts on pre-season items. Meaning that fall season styled boots, bags, denim or sweaters will be on sale for a few weeks during July!

Consider this your one stop shop for all home, women’s and children’s fashion, swim, footwear, electronics, wellness, beauty, and more during the sale.
