Were you aware that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing and that everything from name brand clothing to high-end accessories to top-of-the-line footwear is currently deeply discounted?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is basically Christmas in July, and we can’t wait to get our hands on some of the most sought after designer goods and lust-worthy editor picks available at prices even your frugal mother-in-law can get excited about. We know you’ve got a budget to stick to! Our favorite part of this epic annual sale has to be the exclusive beauty buys. Huge names like Laura Mercier, Charlotte Tilbury, MAC, Dior, and Anastasia Beverly Hills are all available at the lowest possible prices available anywhere online or in stores.

And the selection is fabulous. But this waking dream is not going to last forever, so it’s your job to take the bull by the horns and start filling your cart.
