Why do all bloggers post about the Nordstrom Sale?

I’m not sure if you caught my early access post I did last week featuring my favorites from the Nordstrom sale or if you were perhaps wrapped up in the hundreds of thousands of other bloggers who have, and are currently, posting about the biggest sale of the year right now. Why is it that all bloggers seem to be posting about this sale? Well, simply put: It makes us money!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is the multi-brand retailers largest and most popularly received annual sale period. With tens of thousands of readers scraping the internet for the best of highest grossing months of the year, this sale serves as the top earning sale for influencers. Bloggers use affiliate (coded) links on their websites and when people shop the sale through their blog, we make a commission. It’s the quickest, easiest way to make a living through your blog and, to be honest, it was the first paycheck I ever received for Damsel in Dior.

I love posting about the Nordstorm Sale because it gives me the opportunity to make suggestions on what I think you should purchase. It’s kind of like having my best friend calling me and asking “What do I need in my closet this season?” and I get to make a list of suggestions. I hope you enjoy it!

P.S. I know that my Nike Cortez sneakers aren’t on sale but they are under $100 and I strongly recommend you get them now! If navy is sold out, my second favorite is this adorable white pair!

Sale ends August 6th, what is your favorite item from my list of favorites?

French Connection

Black Belted Wool Peacoat

I know it feels crazy to be shopping for fall in July, but I hate to break the news that it's coming quicker than you think. Everyone needs a classic black peacoat for cooler months. I really love the fit and style {and price} of this one.

Shop Now


Ribbed Wool & Cashmere Sweater

Speaking of fall, don't you just want to cozy up in this sweater with the A/C blasting right now? Ha! I love, love the color and feel like this would be one of those classic pieces you always reach for when you need to run out the door.

Shop Now

La Mer

Mini Miracles Set ($140 value)

This sale is the best time to invest in something you've been eyeing for a while. You know I'm a big fan of La Mer. Maybe now is a good time for you to give it a test try.

Shop Now


Telson Rosina Slipdress

Slip dresses aren't going anywhere so it's high time for you to invest in a good one. You can layer turtlenecks under or chunky sweaters over with ankle boots for fall. I love this color!

Shop Now


Hooded Raincoat

I purchased this exact rain coat last year and it remains a favorite. I'm only bummed I didn't score it on sale!

Shop Now

Vince Camuto

Black Jumpsuit

You can't go wrong with a classic black jumpsuit. I've been obsessed with mine because you can wear it from day to night.

Shop Now


Oliver Ankle Wrap Flat

Why is it that the things we wear the most always are the things we fail to replenish often? I don't know about you but my closet is barking for a new pair of classic black flats!

Shop Now


Lexanda Bell Sleeve Peplum Blouse

I have this top in black and it is seriously my favorite black top. It's super flattering, comfortable and now I really want it in white!

Shop Now


Free Run RN 2 Running Shoe

I just purchased these running shoes by Nike and I love them! They're lightweight, simple and classic.

Shop Now

Frame Denim

Le Nouveau Split Hem Jeans

I had to post these jeans because I am just so obsessed with them. They strike that 70s vibe perfectly and I think everyone should own a pair.

    I do shop the NSALE alittle-but it’s so over-hyped and tends to make me feel like everyone’s outfits are going to look the same. Skinny jeans, booties, anything/everything cold-shoulder,camo jacket or long cardigan—it’s the same formula look over and over. Rather than making an entire seasons looks from one store (based on the size of a lot of YouTube hauls that is what happens) i Enjoy shopping different places with different vibes and making unique looks. Guess it’s like decorating a home. Buying a room Price Is Right style, where the whole room is shopped from 1 store and 1 collection, is boring and impersonal. A varied collection of pieces over time reflects a personal style (and you kill it btw) rather than a 2017 catalog snapshot. I think I’m just not a haul-type shopper and that’s a lot of what I’m hearing about the sale.

  • Nordstrom is a great department store anyways and easy to ‘affiliate’ with the brand! At what point did you start using affiliate programs (how many followers did you have etc)?

  • This is so wonderful for people to understand about the world and business of blogging! Amazing post. <3

    I love Nordstrom and shop there all the time except for the Nordstrom Sale LOLOLOL…it always seems like all the stuff I want is the same price and I could get the sale items but the only reason I would be buying them is because they are on sale

    I wanted to write a post about the Nordstorm sale but I can’t figure out how to input my own picks through RewardStyle and their search feature sucks, I can’t ever find what I’m looking for. I must admit I’m a total noob when it comes to that platform and didn’t explore it too much, but why is it so confusing? Do you know how to put your own links through there?
