I’ll do a bigger post with my picks in each category, but let me just say there’s a ton of great stuff on sale this year. I’m excited about a bunch of bags and shoes, and there are *so* many blazers and suits. The lingerie isn’t exciting, but all the old favorites are there – and over time it’s the first thing people store in the NAS, so check it out your size.

My Top 21 Picks From Nordstrom’s 2023 Anniversary Sale
1 – Reiss Heels – Reiss has a ton of cute heels in the NAS sale, all with super high heels, including boots, ankle boots, and these cute heels. They come in black and tan, and have fun mesh cutouts that show a bit of toe cleavage. They will retail for $179 on sale and $285 after sale.
2 – Paul Green loafers – Paul Green is a favorite reader for comfort, but they can be very expensive! These loafers are available in black and brown and will retail for $299 on sale (after, $429). The brand has several cute ankle boots, sneakers and a very simple pump also for sale.
7 – Marc Fisher pumps – That of the brand Zala heel has been a reader favorite for years; I like the slight differences in the Varla heel in the NAS. This bright dark blue (royal blue? cobalt?) is a hot color this year, along with burgundy, and the heel comes in both, with a dusty pink and 3 neutrals. Heels will be $89 in sale, $150 after.
8 – AGL heels – Again, this brand is a reader favorite for comfort. This pointy toe block heel pump comes in black and beige, and I love the mix of patent and matte leather. These heels will retail for $290 on sale and $415 after.
Blazers in NAS 2023
There are so many great blazers!!
3 – Khloe Five to Seven Blazer – this navy tweed is a super basic of the brand. Wear it with black, navy – just about any color under the sun. It will be $329 in the sale and $495 after. (Sizes 00-16).
4 – Treasure & Bond jacket – This brand is seriously underrated for its great affordable basics. The fit of this beige jacket is fabulous – and it also comes in plus sizes. It will be $65 during the sale and $99 after.
5 – L’Agence knit blazer (green) – The Agency’s sweater jacket and blazer game is super strong this year, guys. This green knit blazer is gorgeous. It will be $290 during the sale and $425 after. The brand also has a open houndstooth blazer and deep lavender Chamberlain Blazer for sale, as well as a beige biker jacket.
6 – Blazer With Girls (beige) – I think of Avec Les Filles for the outdoor jackets more than the blazers, but this beige jacket with embroidered trims looks great. It will be $135 during the sale and $200 after.
Lingerie & Other
9 – Natori has a ton of great bras on sale this year, as they always do – it’s a great opportunity to get a sale price on bras in your size, in a variety of colors, many with matching panties.
ten – Diptych candles – it’s always one of the first things to go to the NAS! If you love candles, definitely put them on your wish list. This 4-piece set has a value of $168, but will cost $118 on sale.
11 – Mermaid Ring by Monica Vinader – I love pretty much all of Vinader’s stuff, but this simple ring looks perfect. (Fun note to take with a grain of salt: I’ve always read that rose quartz is supposed to attract love to you.) The ring will retail for $149 during the sale and $25 after.
12 – Crucible Casserole – OK, this one isn’t workwear, but I don’t recall seeing Le Creuset in NAS before, and certainly not in the color range – and a 4.5 pint size is excellent. It will be $239 during the sale and $375 after; it is available in 8 colors (!!).
19 – Vinader Diamond Earrings – I’m pretty sure I bought these earrings at full price a few months ago…these are the perfect everyday earrings in size and bling I think, at least if you’re the kind of person who wears diamond drop earrings every day. The earrings will retail for between $259 and $279 and between $395 and $425 after the sale; they come in white gold, rose gold, and yellow gold versions.
13 – Vince pants – Brown is a huge color in NAS this year, and these cotton-blend cigarette pants seem like the perfect color because they’re distinctly brown, so you can wear them with black without worrying about people thinking you’ve dressed in them black. These pants are $229 on sale and $345 after. (There are a ton of brown pants in all cuts, sizes and shades!)
14 – AllSaints Pants – I always love ribbed detailing, and these high-waisted wide leg pull-on pants from AllSaints look like the unicorn in pants: comfortable yet refined and on-trend. They will be at $180 in the NAS, but will go back up to $269 after the sale.
15 – With Les Filles pants – These come with a matching blazer, and I love the suit as a whole, but I especially think these pinstripe pants in a charcoal/red pinstripe look cool. They cost $99 when on sale, but will go back to $150 after the sale. (Not pictured, but pants matching the Reiss blazer are also great on their own and are sure to go fast.)
Women’s Suits in Nordstrom’s 2023 Anniversary Sale
16 – Reiss navy suit – I haven’t seen a great neutral suit like this in the NAS, from a major brand like Reiss, in a while now. THE blazer is $329 (will revert to $545 after sale), and trousers are $198, but will go back to $330.
17 – Halogen Contrast Combination – I can’t decide if I prefer the black/white version of this costume, or the gray houndstooth version/black contrast better! Halogen seems to have knocked it out of the park with this one – the jacket will be $106 in the sale, and it will return to $159 after the sale. The houndstooth is available in regular and plus sizes, while the black version comes in an XXL size. (It’s worth noting that the houndstooth version definitely has matching pants, skirt and dresses, but the black version is mostly shown separately – but the brand has a ton of clothes to match”Color “rich black”.
18 – boss costume – I love this deep “court green” color from Boss, and they offer matching pieces in both a “sustainable blend” suit fabric and leather, including pants, skirt, double-breasted blazer, a leather motor jacket and a cropped houndstooth jacket. (Plus a gorgeous square-neck jersey top for $89.) Costume pieces are $199-$419, including leather, and after the sale will go back to $298-$695.
Large work bags in NAS 2023
20 – Red shopping bag – AllSaints has a few bags on sale, and this Allington tote is one of my favorites – I think “Winter Orchid Red” is a great color, but the bag also comes in a beige and a black more neutral. The bag measures 13.5 x 11 x 6.5 inches and has a removable zippered pouch, perfect for lunch. The bag will be $199 in the NAS, but will return to $299 after the sale. (If you are looking for a more purple tote, cole haan also has a cute tote on sale, available in a reddish purple and a teal (not pictured).)
21 – Blue shopping bag with rainbow shoulder strap – Madewell always has a carrying tote in the NAS, and I LOVE this blue tote with a multicolored strap. (The tote, in general, is a reader favorite for a casual office!) The tote will retail for $125 in NAS, and it will return to $188 after the sale. (There is also a beige/pink version.)
