The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has officially begun. It’s my favourite sale of the year and a particularly big event in Seattle, which is home to Nordstrom’s headquarters and flagship store. The sale offers hot off the press new merchandise for Fall and Winter at reduced prices for a period of two weeks. This sale kicks off the new retail season and is NOT an end of season sale. Prices go back up on August 4. 

I’ve spent a week preselecting the sale with my clients. They cover a range of body types, lifestyles and style personas, and we found many good items across an assortment of price points. Don’t be put off by the appearance of the items in the online photos, because they often look better in person. Be sure to check all the colour options and availability across petite and plus sizes.

I’m kicking off with dresses because for the first time ever, clients came home with plenty of Fall frocks thanks to sleeves and extra hem length. All of these top picks were winners on one or more of my clients. Surprisingly, most regular sized merchandize worked well on petite clients this year, and regular sized merchandise often includes a size 14 and 16.

Note that sizes do come back into stock over the course of the two weeks so keep checking the items for your size.



Feel free to ask further questions about size, colour and fit in the comments section, and let’s get you sorted.
