While we've always been of the enthusiast-online-shopper mindset, the strange stuck-at-home summer of 2020 has reinvigorated our usual hunger for it to newly obsessive deal-hunting heights. And now, the day we've been eagerly awaiting all season long has finally dawned: Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale. In celebration of our passion for running down the absolute best virtual scores, we've crafted you a very special guide to Nordy's big 2020 sale event — and, as you may have already guessed, it's filled with Refinery29 readers' most wanted markdowns.
Not only did we dig back through last year's top-bought Anniversary Sale finds, but we also consulted current trends across the shopping space to inform us of the most up-to-date-bestsellers. Ahead, shop our resulting hit-list of reader-vetted scores: from exclusive cult-favorite beauty sets (hello, NARS "Orgasm") to essential home bundles (cooling cotton sheets, anyone?) and infamous fall-fashion staples (ahem, faux-leather leggings). The sale is set to simmer on through August 30 — but we're already calling that these popular slashed-priced styles won't stay in stock for long.
