Sharing what I ordered on the first day of Early Access in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018! Remember, my business is shopping so I buy an extraordinary amount of clothing. You should make a list of what you need before diving in. I suggest starting with your wardrobe basics. You can receive 2 FREE checklists if you subscribe to my newsletter. The link is below.
I think it would also be a lot easier if you shop from my blog post. I put 10+ hours of work into it, pouring over every page in the sale….so you do not have to!!

Erin - please do an alternative twist on the anniversary sale posts with a “other places to get a fantastic deal” on fall merch. There are 500 anniversary sale posts in my feed and I am craving something fresh and unrelated. Alternatives please!
Erin when they sell out of an item like they are selling out of most everything, what do the people on the 20th get if the card holders buy it along, don't seem fair to me and I'm a card holder just almost seems like rich 1st and believe you me I'm a middle class woman just trying to make it and enjoy alittle offers life, hey people we putting it on a credit card and paying for it till the next anniversary sale of 2019 lol, lots of love my friend, MARTICIA
Busbee Style. Thanks Erin I was just wondering about that, some of the ladies was saying they couldn't afford to shop at Nordstrom even with its on sell I got what I liked and I'm not sure it's will all fit or looks good but I will send back what I don't want, I remember what it is like having children barely scraping by and I still have hard times now sometimes, I wished I could give that lady a starting wardrobe that said she couldn't afford Nordstrom but I don't have the money to nor any pull to just make her face light up, that would be a good contest only people that can enter are those who can't afford a new wardrobe naw I would just pick a person myself, anyway thank you, MARTICIA
Thanks for all your hard work, Erin! i have a question about the Halogen cashmere. Every year i buy a sweater or two in the sale + every year am shocked at how quickly it starts pilling. Do you have any idea why that happens + how to prevent it? I have the small stone that i use to brush it with but it's so frustrating when i've spent more money on it to have to do that. Someone told me that if i don't want pilling i have to go higher end but what are your thoughts on it?
Actually, Erin, maybe a video on how to care for sweaters and especially cashmere would be helpful. I never know what to do. I run out of space and hang mine because they get all wrinkly in drawers or on shelves, but then it stretches them out. So if we're supposed to fold them, how do we do it without creasing and what about the long cardigans? Do we hang those? Maybe you already did one of these? If not, i bet it could be popular. Thank you!
I heard Nordstrom is not restocking for public access...???? Is that true? If so, I am thinking I might be done with Nordstroms all together. VERY not inclusive of all people. If I have the money, why can't I shop with everyone else???? Perhaps I will have to use a port-a-potty in the parking lot when I visit, or park further away than those with a NORDY card. WTH??? Bad enough but now word of no restocking for public access???!??!??!?
Something I haven’t seen anyone talking about is the exposed seam sweater from Dreamers by Debut. I think it’s all sold out, but this sweater is great. Similar to a Barefoot Dreams. So soft, but you do need to size down one or two sizes. I bought an XS (5’4” 129 lbs) and usually buy a medium because I like things flowy. Love your picks. Skipped the Veronica Beard jacket this year as I already have more jackets than I need. Can’t wait to see the try on.
Nope ... I ordered OVERNIGHT shipping and still have only received two items. It took me hours to place my order even though I got up in the middle of the night. They should have their ducks in a row by now, HOWEVER, they are giving up 10 points per dollar so that’s a nice token!
Get the circle cardigan, not the hoodie. https://rstyle.me/cz-n/c6ukgh58an It’s supposed to be long and will likely come to about your knees, but that will be pretty! As long as it’s not swallowing you up size-wise!
Hey Erin! I’m always glad to hear your picks because I feel like you always choose things of quality and sustainability. I am someone who feels like a garment is never a good deal if it’s poor quality and won’t wash well.
Excellent picks! 👍 It's a pitty Nordstrom is not in Europe. I was in SFO a couple of years ago and visited N.Rack, there was so much good stuff 😍 This sale is even better as it is not what they could not sale but current items.
So exciting! About to place my order. Caslon black skinny jeans, a few BP tshirts and this amazing striped wrap shirt dress from Eliza J that is going to be perfect for a coastal Maine wedding I'm attending next month.
I completely understand, Wendy! This sale is always really hard to shop because it's still summer! Hoping my picks make it easier for you to shop or get ideas for what you'll want when you're ready for fall! Erin xo
Thanks again, Erin! I imagine that you spent so much time covering so many categories, sharing ideas and background information, and it definitely shows. I will get a Nordstrom card (late adopter), and pick up a few items I need. All the best!
Erin, thanks for all your hard work! I love that today was a 10Xpoint day! Woot woot. I picked up a pair of Frame jeans after seeing your recommendation. While trying them on I found a beautiful Deep Plum Lewit butter leather jacket....OMG I think you would love it so check it out in the sale. Butter soft, I'm in love
Erin, I hope you realize by now what a blessing you've been to my life, and you already know what an amazing influence you have been to me (and my self-esteem)!!! I've never shopped at Nordstrom, even when I was an executive in the corporate world. Funny how, now that I'm fully disabled (in addition to being a Disabled Veteran), I have time to watch these awesome videos on YouTube and I'm getting more into fashion...ironically now I can't afford it as easily as I could have 3 years ago. However, my awesome Daddy passed away unexpectedly a few months ago and he was always trying to give me money to spend on MYSELF (instead of always on my kids) when he was alive. He wasn't rich by any means, but I AM finally able to do things for ME in addition to my kids. So this will be my FIRST NORDSTROM SHOPPING EXPERIENCE, and I'm SOOO EXCITED!!! I just hope I can stick to my budget once I go over to the Busbee Style Blog! WOOHOO!!! 💕💕💕💃🏼💃🏼💃🏼😁😁😁
Busbee Style - I don't have Early Access, so I HAD almost 20 things on my Wish List... Only about 7 are still available. 2 things I REALLY wanted that are out of stock are the UGG Wedge Bootie and the Barefoot Dreams Cardigan. Still in stock that I'm 🙏🏼 don't sell out: The Vince Camuto Western Bootie in Antique Parchment Leather, the Sam Edelman (love his shoes...so comfy) Knee High Suede Boots in Black, and the Halogen Bralette in Grey Micro.
ALL of the jeans I wanted are gone, but I'm not hurting for jeans. Yes, 1/2 of the 20 pair I have are Rock Revival, but they fit me like a dream and still look cute with sneakers and tees or a Moto Jacket and boots or heels. And I don't wear the overly blinged out styles. 😉 I'll eventually get all my jeans changed out too, but I'm not very patient so I was hoping to get some in the Nordstrom Sale! 🤷🏼♀️ Have a great weekend!
Thanks for all your hard work, Erin! I went to the store and tried on a few of your picks. The Norstrom Signature cashmere sweater was not a good look on me but the quality is excellent. I love the SW boots...tried them on in black and they are stunning. I picked up some nice things and I don't think I'm done - LOL.
You are so sweet, Erin, but I can't afford Nordstrom..even on sale. I go to thrift stores and find practically brand new items from Nordstrom at the fraction of the price.... Just can't do it and don't have the resources to spend this kind of money on clothes, but thank you anyways ... :)
I watch Erin just for inspiration. Then I shop my own closet and do a look for less. Erin is the only blogger that buys the items and actually wears the clothes. I truly believe most of these bloggers shop the sale just to make the blog post, get commissions off the links, then return the items once they’re done with photos. Most of them can’t afford what they’ve bought.
On the blog, I posted luxe finds: https://busbeestyle.com/2018/07/12/my-nordstrom-anniversary-sale-picks-2018/ I can look into elaborating more too!! Not sure there is enough to warrant it... I’ll double check. Thanks!!
What a nightmare! I placed large double orders by mistake! The website was a mess and didn't show that the first order went through. Can't get through by phone or chat :( I can't have both of those orders on my credit card this month!!
I hope it includes what I purchased yesterday! I did finally get through on chat after an hour wait. The rep couldn't say whether the order would be cancelled, but I found out today that it was. But now Nordie's is sending me emails about items that it won't be able to fulfill. Sigh.
Nikkole Tinius thank you for the lesson in etiquette! NEVER ask anyone how much something costs! Just RUDE!! Enjoy her style tips don’t criticize the costs. It’s not the point! Thank you Nikkoke. You are a very classy lady💕
Give me a break! The prices are obviously part of any consumer's decision to purchase or not. Totally relevant when she's promoting specific items. It would be cool if she even mentioned the prices and perhaps showed lower priced alternatives at other stores. Maybe she will sometime. I love the items she chose but come on!
I ordered way too much. I’m trying not to go back 🤣🤣 I made three orders today alone. Did you order the stem paint splattered overalls for your daughters? So cute - I ordered them for two of my granddaughters! I had way too much fun! Thanks for the videos Erin!
Odd how most all-nighters make us look and feel tired...unless IT IS DURING THE NAS! You look exuberant and bright and fresh! : ) It is SO YOUR JAM!!! Such a doll baby you are! : ) Glad you snagged another Veronica Beard Blazer. Ladies, I tell you, you will see her style it for the next 7 months...you will regret not grabbing it yourself!
THANK YOU SOOO MUCH FOR THE BLOG FOR US !!!! You are an angel and made it so easy for us !!!!Great choices and can’t wait for the haul !!!You are looking gorgeous as always 💕xoxo Love the white booties :)
Thank you so much for doing this! A work of love! So appreciated! I also ordered some Little Giraffe blankets for baby shower gifts and Olukai flip flops for my husband and sons. So inexpensive right now and all guys think they are cool! Could you do a mens section?
This is a unique real vampire website for vampires as well as the curious. It has valuable information for any real vampire and is based on scientific evidence. It also leads to other good websites for real vampires.
This is why I "think" Im a real vampire They have no desire to use us as lab rats or slaves. Before reading any farther on this site, This website is not made for poser vamps, close-minded people, or those who think that they are, or claim to be a vampire because they think the spirit of a vampire entered them at some time making them a vampire. We call these people posers, which they are; they are confused lost children. This site is not here for them in any way! It is for real vampires, curious people, and open-minded skeptics. The best compliment that you can give to this site, is telling all of your friends about it.
Real vampires are not pure fiction.
The Headache Paradox: It is scientifically impossible to have a headache, seeing that there are no pain receptors in the brain. Yet we continue to search for answers to what causes a headache, because we all know that headaches do exist.
Between a combination of the fact that our brains are roughly nothing more than a highly advanced mass of nerves, and that every function is controlled by signals that our brain sends through our nerves to the rest of our bodies, I think that if we could somehow make our nerves send stronger, more efficient signals at a quicker speed it would have a lot of different results. Including heightened sense (both physical and psychic) moving quicker both running and walking along with arm movement etc. The brain being just nerves would obviously also be effected, resulting in quicker more efficient thinking, which naturally would make us smarter, more observant, and have much sharper reflexes.
Some say that is an overly simplified form of how the brain functions, which it is. To them I say make the axons 12-15% wider, resulting in signals being sent much more quickly through the brain. Allowing neurons to create more connections without loss of speed, and the 10,000+ miles of blood vessels in the brain doubling as an additional cooling system for the brain. I could write a book on the cascade of effects that alone causes for people when they are changed in to a real vampire, however for now I will leave it in this simplified form.
