Raise your hand if you’ve been personally and financially victimized by the Nsale? *raises hand. Yeah, same girl. The sale hasn’t even started and I’ve already heard so much about it from other bloggers. But I want to do something different. Keep reading to hear my mind-blowing plan for the Nsale.
Okay, here it is.
I’m going to ONLY share items that are WORTH it.
I know, wild. So, I’m not going to share EVERY single piece that I think is cute. I’m sharing the items that going to be staples in your closet and are worth the investment. Think denim, shoes, blazers, etc.
It’s so easy to get caught up in the madness every year. Bloggers are pushing Nordstrom credit cards and teasing items that they have previewed. Honestly, I got sucked in and felt like I wasn’t a good enough blogger because I didn’t have a freaking credit card. It’s ridiculous how easy it is to feel like you aren’t keeping up, but in the end, it’s just clothes. And that should mean something if I’m saying it because y’all know I L.O.V.E to shop. p.s. if you have a Nordy card or want to get one for the sale, I’m NOT judging you. I’m more like judging myself for thinking a credit card would make me a better blogger.
Anyways, this year I’m going to share what I really think is a good purchase from the sale. I created a tab at the top of the page called NSALE and that’s where you can find all my picks.
I’ll probably do a try-on at some point for the more “fun” purchases and I’ll put it on the blog too.
So, if you aren’t a Nsale expert, I wanted to answer a couple questions to get you prepped for the madness that is Nsale.
when does it start?
Early Access starts 7.12// you can shop early access if you have a Nordstrom card. If not, you can still see everything that will be on sale, but just won’t be able to buy it yet.
Public Access starts 7.19// If you’re a regular Joe (like most of us) this is when you can start shopping the Nsale. It ends 8.4, but I’ll do a last day post just in case you haven’t shopped yet. *I literally always wait until the end, in true Caitlin form.
what should I buy?
I’ll be sharing the major pieces that I think are worth it. Boots, denim, jewelry, watches, and handbags are some of my favorite things that go on sale. Of course, I will throw in a couple other pieces that are worth it, but for the most part, I want to shove all the Nsale bull aside and share things y’all actually will wear for a long time.
do I need a Nordstrom credit card?
No. You don’t need to get a credit card just to shop a sale. However, if you have self control (I have zero) and can use a credit card like a normal human (again, not me) then there are definite benefits. You get early access to the sale and if you get a Nordy Credit Card by 7.10, you get a $60 note, which is basically a gift card.
will things sell out?
Yes, for sure. BUT they will be restocked. I’ll be posting a ton on the Liketoknow.it app, so be sure to follow me there. I’ll let you know when the good stuff gets restocked.
So, buckle up y’all and get ready for a NORMAL Nsale coverage. 🙂
