Its here!!! The 2016 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is live! Were you up at midnight pacific time to shop? They did things a little differently this year with no downtime to the website like in previous years. There were also none of the anniversary items loaded in advance (at least none reported!) Several people including me had trouble with the site. I had the same dress added to my cart 18 times as I clicked through various pages.
I went to the store and here’s some of the highlights and misses.
The Alexander Wang Darcy Hobo sold out super fast. If you are still lusting over it, you need to be online at the stroke of midnight when the public sale opens. I think that is your best shot at scoring one of those. I talked to a sales associate at the store today and the beet color sold out to Level 4 customers yesterday within the first hour! Wow! I saw the bag online at midnight but only in 2 of the 3 colors (black and latte), so I think that is probably why–all of the hobos in beet were already gone!
The 3.1 Phillip Lim Quill bags were also sold very quickly. As of right now, the mini Soleil chain bag is still for sale on the website in Cherry.
I saw the Yigal Azrouel sweater in store and it is so soft. The Burberry Brit Craysmore cropped peacoat was super cute, but that style just doesn’t work for me so I didn’t try it on. The material felt very nice though.
There were some Missoni scarves that I hadn’t heard anyone talk about. They were gorgeous!
The new Marc Jacobs bags were all very nice. I really like the grey leather that they use and the gold hardware. I have this combo in the form of a Classic Q Natasha in the old Marc by Marc Jacobs line. The hobo was very large. I think the tote shown here was nicer.
There was a pink Coach Crosby 24 bag that I thought was very cute. Love this shade of pink!
The shoe tent is always a zoo so I didn’t stay too long. I checked out the AGLs this year and thought that the AGL Blakely studded flats were cute, but the Kristin Block heel was a pass for me. The AGL Frankie Tall Wedge was amazing and SO SO LIGHT. All 3 of these AGLs are Made in Italy.
There was a La Canadienne boot and Blondo boot that I also liked.
The Tory Burch flats looked cute but I didn’t try on. I liked the pewter snake (the shiny one) color a lot.
