After weeks of shopping for the special people on your holiday gift list, it’s finally the magical time of year when you can treat yourself to a little something. The lazy days between Christmas and New Year’s Eve were practically made for online shopping. Many stores are running after-Christmas sales, and with new gift cards and possibly a few items to return, there’s no better time to order a few things just for you. And if you’re interested in shopping for your wardrobe, you won’t want to miss Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale.

As a matter of principle, I don’t shop from Nordstrom unless there’s a sale. It’s not just because I appreciate a good deal; I write about online shopping for a living. That means it’s my job to know when and where all the best sales are taking place, and I know truly impressive discounts when I see one.

Nordstrom’s recent sale drop includes plenty of deals on clothes and accessories. Whether you’re in the market for jeans, leggings, jackets, or purses, you’re sure to find something that catches your eye among the more than 17,000 included items.

If that number sounds daunting, don’t worry: I already took the liberty of scrolling through the thousands of discounted pieces to gather the best deals. From a pair of distressed Levi’s jeans to classic white Adidas sneakers, here are eight editor-approved deals to shop from Nordstrom’s Half-Yearly Sale. But hurry! These deals only last through January 3, and popular pieces are already selling out in certain sizes.

Levi’s 724 Ripped High Waist Crop Straight Leg Jeans

Nordstrom has deals on denim from top brands, including this pair of distressed straight leg jeans from Levi’s. You can also find discounts on jeans from favorites like 7 For All Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, Paige, and Rag & Bone. These kind of markdowns don’t happen every day, so now’s the time to shop.
