Elegant Wardrobe Items from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

As much as we love summer, people seem to love the coziness of fall. Chunky sweaters, riding boots, and all the wool hats. Fall is already in the minds of savvy fashion shoppers.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale has started and it is the best time to purchase fall wardrobe staples on a very big discount for only a limited time. You can check out details on dates for this sale (including membership levels) right here.

But a quick rundown: It goes on until August and the first few days are just for card holders. Then the sale goes public after that (which means everyone can purchase from the stock).


The Brutal Honest Truth About This Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale can be overwhelming and underwhelming at the same time for women like me who enjoy classic and timeless pieces. The truth is, the most popular items are very much “trend” based. You’ll see everyone and their mother wearing the same leopard print cardigan, the same cardigan, ripped skinny jeans, nude ankle booties, and nude wool hats.

To look through the catalog and the in store stock for timeless pieces is hard. There’s pages on pages of items. So I’ve done the research and found a few key timeless and elegant capsule wardrobe pieces you can shop from the sale.


Welcome to the Elegant Capsule Wardrobe Guide for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

These pieces are all very unique amongst the whole catalog because they are so classic. The price range varies, so do click on the item you wish to view to see if it’s within your budget.

Remember, a capsule wardrobe is 10-15 pieces that can either be worn all year round or seasonally. This is done so that you minimize space in your closet and also spend less for your budget. The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is a great way to get these classic pieces on a budget!

And when you shop with The Petite Bijou, you’ll be helping some very special furry friends.

This year, I am donating 10% of every order made using my affiliate links to an organization called Milo’s Sanctuary, a special needs cat rescue. All cats deserve a second chance at life, especially those that have physical disabilities, are seniors, have a terminal illness, or have been abused and need someone to care for, love, and understand them. When you shop the Nordstrom Sale using my links (like this one), you will be helping this lovely organization! I have cats, I have a disability, so I can’t imagine how hard these little ones have it. This organization is truly amazing for helping these babies.


Want to ensure your shopping experience helps these cats?

It’s simple – SHOP ONLINE, and make sure that you visit my site, The Petite Bijou, and click on any one of my Nordstrom links during the whole Anniversary Sale period. If you click on anyone else’s affiliate links, the sale won’t be acknowledged and the cookie will be deleted from your browser. Shopping through my links is at no cost to you and I only get a small commission (most of which will be donated to a lovely organization anyways!) So please join me in helping these cats during the sale.
