The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – What I Actually Bought

Sharing is caring!

Truth be told, I don’t usually shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. A lot of times I find it overwhelming and pricing still feels like a lot. However, there are a couple of things this year that I did think seemed worth it. 

I sometimes use affiliate links on Thoroughly Contemporary. That means if you make a purchase through one of these links I make a small commission at no extra cost to you. 

What I purchased-

  1. The tortoise shell sunglasses. I love how oversized the frame is and the retro feel these glasses have (I love a good pair of retro inspired sunglasses). This is also a brand I’ve been interested in for a while. 
  2. The Pillow Talk set. I’m actually surprised this is still available (though it is backordered). Another product I’ve wanted to try for a while and it seems like the best price I will find. 

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale goes until this Friday, August 28th. Will you be shopping?

    I love hearing about the purchases that are simple and practical, and have pieces/products the person has genuinely wanted for a long time. This is great. You invested in some fantastic sunglasses, and I’m sure you’ll love the CT cosmetics. I hear raves all the time!
