Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.
One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Of course, I have the items I'll buy any time of the year — a refill on some beauty products or the occasional gift — but for the Stella McCartney purse, I've been lusting after for the past nine months or the UGG boots my sister mentioned wanting last winter, I'll wait till sale time to hit the "place order" button.
This year has had some of the most exciting product launches of all time. With the rise of boutique beauty and fashion brands, we're dying to get our hands on some of our favorites from L'Occitane, Kiehl's, Topshop, Nike, and more. Select Nordstrom cardmembers have early access to the sale as of August 4, and opens up to the public on August 13.
For those waiting till August 13 to place your orders, Nordstrom's made it extremely easy to go ahead and start putting your wishlist together so you can see what some of the best deals are ahead of time. Here are our top picks for the products you should absolutely be buying multiples of — whether they're all for yourself or to hang on to as last-minute gifts:
