July is a scuba dive into the
deep sea of sales. Post Prime Day, our shopping tanks are running on empty and we're ready to come up for air — but, just as we start to surface, another lure of irresistible deals floats in to hook us: a big kahuna called Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. The annual event kicked off on Friday, July 19 with major cross-category discounts on premium brands that not even our spent bank accounts can resist.
Before you take a shopping reprieve, join us for one final dive into the
most wanted Nordstrom scores. We looked back at last year's carts and crafted a list of R29 reader's most wanted products to shop for 2019's extravaganza. There's a little sale something for everyone; from exclusive beauty sets to plush home bundles, top-rated fashion basics, stylish luggage, and more. With just enough shopping oxygen left in the month, it's time to swim through the 29 deals ahead. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. All product details reflect the price and availability at the time of publication. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
