Being from Seattle, home of the Nordstrom department stores, their Anniversary Sale is something of a cultural holiday for me. It's not like a normal sale- they bring in next season's merchandise and put it on deep discount for several weeks before marking it up to its normal price. It's a great way to scope out new trends, get a jump on autumn attire (and for those who are REALLY on top of things, even gifts for the holidays!), and get some great deals on items that are not typically on sale.
The Anniversary Sale operates on a tier system whereby Nordstrom card members can shop the sale a week and a half before it opens to the general public. Fortunately, my mom is a card holder, so we spent an evening this week enjoying our yearly tradition of picking out goodies for the winter months. While we were browsing the racks, a few pieces reminded me of a few of our favorite Royal ladies, and a couple folks requested some guidance on great Replikate/Replimeghan/Replipippa items to be found in the sale, so I rounded up a few at some great prices!
Nordstrom offers free shipping and free returns, so if you are not certain of your size, it's recommended that you buy both to try on and just return the one that doesn't fit as the merchandise moves VERY quickly during the sale. Additionally, if you are not a card holder, the sale opens to the public on July 20 and you can start a Wishlist right now so that you can come back to it next week to make your purchases. Take a peek at the items below and let me know if you happen to pick any up for yourself!
