Our Styling Director’s Anniversary Sale Picks

Sometimes shopping a uniformly good sale can be overwhelming. There are so many styles, such great prices and, tragically, a limited amount of money in your bank account. That’s definitely the case when it comes to our one-of-a-kind Anniversary Sale. It features next season’s styles at already discounted prices for a limited time only. (The sale ends August 6, and prices go up August 7.) If only someone could be your discount docent and lead you to the pieces you didn’t know your closet needed.

Fear not, fashionable friend: We recruited Nordstrom Styling Director Ruth Basloe to be our guide through all of the fall goodies. Here’s her map to aid your treasure hunting.

How Our Anniversary-Exclusive Dress from Paige Got Made

Paige Adams-Geller, founder of the wildly popular brand that bears her name, sits in a light-flooded conference room that feels like a comfortable living space. Behind her, underneath a vignette of potted succulents and photography books filled with prints of Los Angeles, is a silky sundress the color of dusty figs, with cold-shoulder cutouts and drawstring ties at the waist. Lucky us, Adams-Geller and her design team created the dress exclusively for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

When asked why she wanted to design a one-of-a-kind dress for our one-of-a-kind sale, she smiles. “For me, it’s about giving something back to the Nordstrom customer who has been so loyal and so amazing to our brand. It’s a gift for her.”

Ashley Graham Interviews Style

Model and Icon Ashley Graham on Visible Bra Straps and Invisible Panty Lines

Model Ashley Graham has become one of those beautiful faces (and bodies) that are instantly identifiable. But the bodacious lady is so much more than meets the admiring eye. TIME named Graham one of the magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2017 in the Icon category (Tyra Banks penned her tribute). Not only is Graham abolishing society’s stringent beauty standards one glossy cover at a time, but she’s helping other women through her positive message of self-acceptance and her line of sexy plus-size swimwear and lingerie.

Graham chatted with us about which top-drawer essentials in her collection are part of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and how she builds up her self-esteem through lingerie and nurturing self-talk.

What do you love about Nordstrom’s “one-of-a-kind” Anniversary Sale? Why is it a great time to shop?

I love the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because you can find all of the quality brands you love at such great prices.

What do you usually shop during the sale?

I like to shop for investment pieces, like designer bags and shoes.

Artist Kindah Khalidy Takes Her Color Palettes from Old Ladies’ Outfits and Buffed Graffiti

Vibrant, abstract symbols cover the surfaces on which San Franciscan artist Kindah Khalidy works. Although their meaning isn’t objectively discernible, they are undeniably cheery and upbeat. Khalidy paints on almost any blank canvas: clothes, walls, wrapping paper, furniture. Her optimistic, pop-art palette plays off the starkness of its backdrop.

One of the adorable faces of our Anniversary Sale, we caught up with Khalidy to chat about her charming art, her style and her shopping habits.

What do you love about Nordstrom’s “One-of-a-Kind” Anniversary Sale? Why is it a great time to shop?

It’s a fun time to finally grab those items I’ve been eyeing for a while. We’re pretty lucky with Bay Area weather in the sense that you can wear clothes for all seasons, year round. Cue the sweaters.

Talking About Great Danes and Good Man Brand with Pro Football Star Russell Wilson

Quarterbacks aren’t supposed to seem oddly clear-headed during what is technically called a “scramble.” But with Russell Wilson, what is really a run for his life often ends up looking like a jog through the park. We’re blown away by his abilities and especially his grace under fire.

As one of the faces of our Anniversary Sale, Wilson talked with us about football, philanthropy, and his modern men’s clothing venture Good Man Brand.

What do you love about the Nordstrom “One-of-a-Kind” Anniversary Sale? Why is it a great time to shop?

Shopping at Nordstrom is always fun and easy. Who doesn’t love finding the newest styles of the season at sale prices? This year I am especially excited for the Anniversary Sale at Nordstrom since Good Man Brand, a new fashion lifestyle brand that I am a co-founder of, will be featured.  What an honor for Good Man Brand to have been selected by the Nordstrom buyers to be a part of this event alongside some the best and biggest brands in the world. We think it will help us take a huge step towards setting up our brand for long term success.

Uncompromising Style with Actor and Singer Taye Diggs

He’s known as an incredibly versatile actor, but Taye Diggs can also sing with the best of the stars on Broadway, which is probably why he’s so busy—he’s just too dang talented. He told us when you’re constantly booked, you don’t have time to shop at a bunch of different stores. Makes sense. We’re honored to be his one-stop destination.

What do you love about the Nordstrom “one-of-a-kind” Anniversary Sale? Why is it a great time to shop?

Well, I just like to shop, period. Right now, it’s the changing seasons. So, loading up on all the fall stuff is exciting.

Hana Mae Lee Talks About Hilarious Horror, Her Recluse Ambitions and Rad Style

You definitely know her as Lilly from Pitch Perfect (1, 2 and now 3), but Hana Mae Lee is branching out into more (and more vocal) roles. The star on the rise with ingenue eyes brings her distinctly darling style to all her projects—three to come this year alone.

We caught up with Lee to talk about what she shops, her signature hair style and her favorite movie moments.

What do you love about Nordstrom’s “one-of-a-kind” Anniversary Sale? Why is it a great time to shop?

I love the variety. From Le Creuset to MM6 Maison Margiela, so your boyfriend cooks while you’re looking good! Everyone loves a sale, but a great sale is where it’s at. #Heard

What do you usually shop during the sale?

I splurge on diptyque Feu de Bois candles.

How would you describe your personal style?

Dark. Oversized. Rad.

Melissa McCarthy Visits Nordstrom Downtown Seattle To Promote Her fashion Line Melissa McCarthy Seven7 Style

Melissa McCarthy Helps Kick Off Anniversary Sale at Nordstrom Downtown Seattle

Not that she needs any introduction, but the movie and TV star and newly-minted fashion designer Melissa McCarthy took time out of her crazy-busy schedule to stop by our flagship store in downtown Seattle last Friday, where she greeted customers and promoted her clothing collection, Melissa McCarthy Seven7.

Let’s be honest: mixed in with the thrill at the prospect of meeting a favorite celebrity IN PERSON is the tiniest fear that the actor you’ve loved and laughed-so-hard-you’ve-cried watching—whose movies you OWN (even though you can watch them on Netflix)—will be nothing like her accessible on-screen persona in real life. But Melissa McCarthy did not disappoint. She was absolutely lovely—warm, down-to-earth, genuinely gracious and engaging with every single person she met—and there were many!
