It’s time to talk about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale catalog because the sale started today! It’s no secret that this sale is pretty polarizing – when I asked for input on what you are looking for this year, a bunch of you said you didn’t like seeing too much coverage before they can even shop. So I just want to remind you that I can’t even shop yet either 😂 That being said, I will be covering the sale in small ways here and there because, while I don’t think it’s groundbreaking by any means, there are some great deals to be had. And you know I love a good deal.
I also want to remind you that you don’t NEED anything just because it’s on sale. But on the flip side, if you are looking for specific items or a closet refresh, I’m here to help you get those at a discount! Maybe you really need a new pair of leggings or pajamas of rain boots. Those are really practical sale items to get. I personally think it’s a great opportunity to get new jeans and underwear. Those are always my NSale go-tos!
Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog: Early Access
When is the sale starting and when can I shop?
I have Influencer status (this is one of their tiers, it has nothing to do with my job!), so I will be able to shop early access starting on July 9th. If you want to join me, all you have to do is sign up for a Nordstrom credit card – you’ll also get a $40 Bonus Note (aka store credit) to spend during the sale! Nordstrom cardholders can earn points/rewards when they shop, as well as get perks like anniversary sale early access. I have the retail card and definitely recommend it! The other tiers below are based on how much money you spend at Nordstrom each year.
If you can’t shop for a while, I’d still recommend looking through this post and creating a Wish List within your Nordstrom profile. That way, you can easily shop online when when the sale goes live for you. Just add the items you want from your wish list to your cart! A few things might sell out by the time the sale opens to the public (that will start on July 15th), but they usually try to restock the popular items.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Catalog
To prep for this post, I spent some time sifting through the entire preview catalog online (there’s no need to get your hands on the 2022 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale print catalog this year!). Here’s my take. This isn’t the most exciting selection in the world… but honestly, is it ever? This sale isn’t meant to blow your mind, it’s meant to help you stock up on new items that you need or want for fall/winter at a discount. In my opinion, the best categories this year are denim, activewear, loungewear/sleepwear, beauty, and shoes.
I got these jeans a few months ago and while the exact wash I’m wearing above is not on sale a different wash without distressing is included for nearly 35% off! These straight leg jeans are a heavier weight without a ton of stretch so I went with a size 27 and they hit right under my ankle.
These jeans are AMAZING. This distressed pair is marked down to $69.90 and dark wash is marked down to $64.90. There’s no mistaking where this style got it’s “ribcage” name – it’s a TRUE high waisted style with a rise of 12″. If you get nervous to wear cropped tops because you don’t want to show too much skin, this is a great style to try. They have a 27″ inseam which is full length on me (I’m 5’2″), but there’s nothing on the bottom on the pant so if you’re shorter than me, they would be easy to tailor. I wouldn’t call these wide leg jeans but they do have a wider straight leg than the other jeans I tried. I got a 27×27 since they are a stiff denim, and I am impressed with how comfortable they are and how well they hug my curves. BIG fan.
This is a new to me brand that has a great price point! I tried this pair which isn’t on sale, but a cuffed version of the same style along with a frayed version are marked down to $65.99! I found them to be REALLY comfortable with a ton of stretch. Full squat test approved and everything! I got a size 2 which fit perfectly so I’m inclined to tell you to size down since I’ve been more of a 27 than a 26 in other jeans recently.

If you like skincare and haircare, there are some GEMS in the beauty category this year.
I got this deodorant from last year’s sale and I can confirm that it 100% lives up to they hype. It smells AMAZING.
My friend Shaheen influenced me to buy this shower oil and wow wow wow it is SO hydrating and the scent is absolutely lovely. Highly recommend stocking up on this!
I have become a major Supergoop! fan over the past few years. It’s non-toxic, reef friendly, and it’s not sticky or greasy.
Curious what all the Tula hype is about? This set is a great place to start. It includes what I think are 2 of their best products: cleanser and day & night cream. I feel like there’s a ton of skepticism around Tula because so many bloggers talk about them, but these products are legit.
I can only speak to the Brow Wiz from this kit, but based on how great it is, I would bet that this is a great purchase!
Augustinus Bader creams are SO EXPENSIVE but the people who love it swear by it since it’s supposed to replace tons of other skincare products. These two products would usually cost $369, but you can get it for $221.
These eye sticks are the most foolproof way to apply eyeshadow EVER. Get three of the most popular shades for $58.
Sunday Riley is one of my all time favorite skincare brands – and you can get full sizes of their Good Genes Lactic Acid and C.E.O. Vitamin C Brightening Serum for $144 ($175 value).
Grab a matte lipstick, lip pencil, and hyaluronic happikiss lipstick in Charlotte Tilbury’s most popular shade, Pillow Talk!
One of the products I always shout about during the Sephora sales is my Olaplex hair mask – and now you can get their hair mask + their shampoo and conditioner as a set.
I know this is super indulgent, but hear me out. I have super thin hair that can easily break with normal hair ties. These scrunchies are SO gentle and barely even leave a crease. They are magical. There is also a SET on sale that includes scrunchies, my favorite eye mask, and a pillowcase all for $115 ($166 value)! Seriously, such a great gift.

Looking for a new mule to wear to the office? These are SO CUTE!
Have you been lusting after Golden Goose style sneakers for a while, but you just can’t justify the price tag? This “fashion sneaker” is marked down to $199 – which, while still expensive, is definitely less than a pair of GGs.
Speaking of fashion sneakers, I feel like these Vince slip ons are an IT shoe every single year… which is why they’re on my personal wishlist every single year 😂 Should I finally try them?! What do we think?!
I’ve had my Hunter boots for years and there’s a reason why so many people have them. They’re great quality and last forever. Both tall and short boots are on sale right now! (You can read my post all about their sizing here!)

Nordstrom’s in-house line, Zella, makes really great affordable activewear – and a ton of their leggings and sports bras are included in the sale! I own these leggings and they’ve held up great over the years.
I’ll be honest, active onsies like this one aren’t for me personally – but it is VERY on trend right now!
I got this skort last summer and it’s a really good one. Built in shorts, compressive and sweat wicking fabric, and flattering silhouette!
I can’t believe Bombas socks are a part of this sale! I know socks might not seem all that exciting, but these socks are insanely comfortable and for every pair sold, they give a pair to those in need. They’re such a cool company and if you ever wear socks (like ever), you won’t regret this purchase.
If Bombas socks sell out, which is a strong possibility, Zella socks are also on sale! I’ve never tried them, but Zella is a great brand, so I bet they are well made and comfortable.

Loungewear, Sleepwear & Intimates
Truly, who doesn’t like getting a cozy new pair of pajamas or a few fresh new pairs of underwear? If you’re anything like me, you don’t buy this kind of stuff for yourself often, so might as well get them on sale!
Hanky Panky makes my all time favorite thongs. The only problem is that they are not cheap, which is why I ONLY buy them during this sale. I’m not kidding. Get them on sale or not at all, that’s my motto 😂
