Back to School With Nordstrom's Anni Sale

Sometimes shopping for Fall while your feet are still in the sand is a bit difficult but we noticed that the prices at this year's Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is even more discounted than last year. Discounts are primarily on exclusive items made for the sale but we have to admit that there is quite a bit of temptation.



Back-to-school items are especially attractive during this Nordstrom sale. For example, we wouldn't be caught dead wearing Uggs but they are a staple for school-age children. These tassel Uggs
are regularly $170 but are temporarily priced at $99 for the Anniversary Sale. Frye boots are equally as questionable but this moto-esque style for kids is $99 from $160. Check out this adorable toddler's Burberry coat, which is normally $250 but is now discounted to $160 and this too-cool-for-school Herschel Supply Company backpack  for $35 from $55.

We are a bit choosier when picking pre-season items for ourselves but we quickly snatched this Carven Embroidered sweatshirt. How can you resist when the price is $190 from almost $300? This Missoni long cashmere coat isn't bad either for $1200 from $2000. How about these Chloe Heloise high boots for $660 from $1000?

We can't say that the Anniversary Sale is a big opportunity to stock up on discount beauty supplies but it's really just a hard to resist. You likely don't need any of these items but a discount in a cosmetic department is hard to turn down. Who doesn't love a new lipstick or jar of cream?

We are always big fans of Butter polish and couldn't resist the exclusive polish 10-piece set for for $49  (value $100) . La Mer's  signature moisturizing cream is priced at $990 from $1360 and a set of Stila lip glaze is valued at $110 but priced at only $25.

The preseason discount runs until August 3rd and then prices are set at the full retail values. While shopping the discounts for fall we suggest also browsing the end of season sale where markdowns are about 60% off.
