Scotti’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks
ONE: Good American Rib-Knit Tie-Waist Dress (also in a long-sleeve version, also on sale!) – I love everything about this dress! It’s comfortable, flattering and perfect for curves — and over 65% off!!
TWO: AllSaints Balfern Leather Jacket – My favorite thing about this leather jacket is that it looks good open or zipped up…and just gets better with wear!
Laura’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks
ONE: Madewell Perfect Vintage Jeans – These are just super-comfy, slim, straight-leg, easy-to-wear jeans. They have stretch, would work with winter boots, and are on sale for under $90. TTS. Wearing a 28. similar sweater | Vans
TWO: Caslon Mock-Neck Cotton-Blend Sweater – This is one of the sweaters from my recent try-on, and it’s a great go-to top with a cute neckline. It’s on sale for under $40 in a few pretty shades, including a deep teal. TTS. Wearing a small. jeans (29) | boots
THREE: Sam Edelman Viv D’Orsay Pumps – LOVE these so much. They have a walkable heel height, are comfy out of the box — even for this gal who doesn’t wear a lot of heels — and the color is even more gorgeous/luxe in person. They’re on sale in other shades too! TTS. coat | bag | jeans | sweater
Kat’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks
ONE: Alice + Olivia Tamiko Convertible Halter Top – This year I’ve been a big fan of Alice + Olivia and purchased quite a few of its pieces. I’ve really loved its collections and had a serious crush on all the pretty and vibrantly colorful pieces. The same was true for the Tamiko convertible top, which I both wore to NYFW and styled so many ways throughout the summer.
TWO: Avec Les Filles Water-Resistant Hooded Puffer Jacket – I’m sure by now you all know that Avec Les Filles is my favorite brand for winter coats, and my absolute favorite winter puffer of the season is on sale!!! I written posts about it and featured it on our YT channel too! Gahhh, it’s just so good!
Amy’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks
ONE: Free People The Way Home Shorts – One of my favorite pairs of running shorts is on super-sale in a happy yellow. They’re just as cute of an option for any casual look in warm weather (no exercise required), and have a built-in liner to make you feel super-covered and comfy. The waistband is very cinching and contouring, which is epic, but you might consider sizing up one if you are straight through the middle like me!
TWO: Free People Adventure Awaits Fleece Jacket – Legit one of the warmest, softest, most luxe fleece jackets I’ve ever worn, and it’s on sale in a few colors (I’m eyeing the Peach Champagne color). It has a soft jersey lining on the inside that feels like your favorite blanket and a hood that can easily be snapped off (wearing a medium)!
Julieta’s Top Nordstrom Sale Picks
ONE: Free People Bell Song Sweater (more colors) – I love my cashmere sweaters, but sometimes I need an interesting knit pattern, and this sweater is gorgeous. I layer my Uniqlo ultra-warm HEATTECH shirt under, and I’m good for the cold. Also in the picture: My beloved Joe’s Mia jeans, which are also on sale.
TWO: Dr. Martens Audrick Platform Chelsea Boot – Gosh…the five-star reviews sing praises about these boots: They don’t need a break-in period and are some of the most comfortable Dr. Martens out there. I was so influenced that I just ordered them.
THREE: Too Faced Mini Eye-Shadow Palette – Only $14! This palette will work for day and night, and I’m obsessed with the reddish pop of color.
Jess’ Top Nordstrom Sale Picks
One: Veronica Beard Taylor High Waist Rigid Wide Leg Raw Hem Jeans – These were my favorite jeans from this year’s Nordstrom sale, and I cannot believe they’re still in stock. I know Julieta and Shana are both fans of these jeans as well.
Two: Dr. Martens Sinclair Booties – I have these ankle boots in black and love them. But at the time I bought them, I had no idea they come in white too. I would’ve definitely chosen to buy the white because my favorite easy way to make a statement look is with chunky-sole white boots.
