Have you ever walked into Nordstrom Rack with a toddler?
It’s kinda like walking into a Broadway Show and then being told you can only stay for the first 3 minutes but then you gotta go. You KNOW you missed out on the majority of the good stuff.
Cause let’s face it…toddlers are anti-shopping most days UNLESS you happen to accidentally drift too close to the toy aisles at Target (not doing THAT again!) Thus I’ve opted to shop at Nordstrom Rack online as I do with most of my needs these days (um, can we all just agree that Amazon Prime is a beautiful thing?!).
And since I have found a few things that work well for me in finding total treasures AND saving BIG on NordstromRack.com, I thought “Hey…why not make a blog post about it!?!”
So here are my TOP CURRENT PICKS (availability + sizes limited of course) and my BEST TIPS + STRATEGIES!!
TIP #1: Type in your favorite Nordstrom brands and search that way! My current favorites are Vince for women, A.L.C, Equipment, Joie, Rag and Bone, Helmut Lang, Theory for Women…
TIP #2: After you narrow down with your brands or item type, play with the “Sort By” by feature! My favorites are “newest” and/or “lowest to highest.”
Sweaters (L-R): Vince Knit Sweater + Striped Sweater (only $5!!!) + Helmut Lang Sleeveless Sweater BAGS: Black Rebecca Minkoff + White Rebecca Minkoff Tote HEELS: Stuart Weitzman Fringe + Sam Edelman Pump FASHION SNEAKERS: Black sneakers + Print Sneakers
TIP #3: Try to only search brands you have already tried/owned so you know the fit/material and your size! That helps prevent ill-fitting duds from showing up.
STRATEGY #1: I usually buy something I saw in the store and loved but didn’t want to spend full price on. This can be time consuming, but absolutely worth it!
WARNING: Don’t get sucked into buying something just because it is on sale! It’s a tricky balance but we should always aim to “LOVE” pieces we are adding to our closets…not just “like as a friend.”
STRATEGY #2: Nordstrom Rack gives free shipping on orders of $100 or more (otherwise it’s around $8 or so). So save all your ordering for once!
Do YOU shop at Nordstrom Rack??! If so…what items do you typically look to find there (shoes, bags, perfume??)
