Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019 | Last Call!

Today’s the last day of the Nordstrom Anniversary sale–prices go up August 5th (and most of the beauty exclusives tend to get pulled, though sometimes they linger, if I’m remembering accurately–still need to finish my morning latte!).

I’ve made a few purchases here and there since I originally posted, and I also updated my original post with some quick thoughts on items I bought that I kept and returned.  Here’s a recap of what I bought and loved:

  • Socialite Long Sleeve Thermal Henley Top ($24.90, regularly $38.00) — bought in three colors, super cozy
  • BP Cozy Top ($25.90, regularly $39.00) — it has a looser, baggier fit, but it’s extremely soft and cozy without being warm–like great for someone who gets cold inside a bit more readily than their other household members (me; I actually have a space heater I run in my office most of the year because I am cold all the time!) or to wear to bed without sweating in the middle of the night!
  • BP Cozy Joggers ($25.90, regularly $39.00) — again, ultra soft, cozy material (very aptly named!) and has pockets; the pockets are quite large, and as the material, while warmer, is still thinner, sometimes the pockets feel enormous and allow my iPhone XS Max to go sideways (so my phone feels weird in my pocket, as I normally have vertically in a pocket).
  • Wit & Wisdom Ab-solution High Waist Jeans ($51.90, regularly $78.00) — nice fit, true-to-size, been wearing these a lot since I got them!
  • Halogen Long Sleeve Modal Blend Tee ($24.90, regularly $39.00) — slim fit, incredibly soft, stretchy
  • Nordstrom Lingerie Moonlight Pajamas ($42.90, regularly $65.00) / Short Pajamas ($35.90, regularly $55.00) — they’re my favorite pajamas and pretty one wear a set every night for the last year or so, and I’m on a mission to convert everyone else’s sleepwear to these! I bought a set for mom for Christmas last year, and she loved them enough that she actually put more on her Mother’s Day wish list (which is a big deal because it’s wayyy more than she’d normally want to spend on pajamas!)… and she loved them enough to put the pants version on her birthday wish list (for fall/winter). I sent my sister a set for her birthday.
  • TravisMathew Talk to Me V-Neck T-Shirt ($39.90, regularly $59.95) — I always try to grab a few items to splurge on for my hubby, since he’s definitely not the spender between us… and he loves this shirt (asked me to buy a few more, despite hearing the price tag) because of how soft and nicely it fits on him. Let’s put it this way: he now understands why modal is my favorite material.
  • SAXX Vibe/Ultra Boxer Briefs ($20.90 for single, $37.90 for two-pack) — hubby’s been on a mission in the last few months to find the perfect boxer briefs, and while he tried some of the top-reviewed ones on Amazon, he ended up totally impressed by the fit, softness, and comfort of the SAXX range.  The Vibe has a slimmer fit, and he was ready to fill his drawer with these, but then he tried the Ultra fit, which he prefers as it’s slightly relaxed.

Below, there’s a recap of the beauty exclusives available, broken down by category, and I’ve crossed out any exclusives that are sold out (helps me as a reference for next year on what was so popular that actually sold out!).

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I must confess that the only thing I bought was the BP Rainbow Marl Sweater. It is a bit boxy unless you size down (which I did) but there are colors in the thread that elevate the sweater above others. It runs a little short (but not fully cropped) which I prefer since I don’t like longer sweaters.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
