+Happy Friday eve, friends and welcome back! I hope this week is treating you well and that you’re ready for the weekend ahead! As you know, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in FULL swing; I’m sure you’ve seen blogger after blogger (myself included) talk about their favorite picks and what they think is worth snagging. As you can tell by the title, today I’m bringing you the much anticipated #NSALE Dupes! I’ve been scouring the internet since the sale went live to cardmembers and have been looking for the best high quality, affordable options on the market! So if you’ve been shopping the sale and your favorite item is still out of stock or a little out of the budget, let me know how I can help; I’d love to help you find the best dupe for you!
Now that I’ve babbled on for far too long, let’s just into the dupes!
*Disclosure: Some links may be affiliate links*
Free People Sweater:Free People does it again; this sweater is soft, cozy and can be dressed up or down. However, unfortunately due to its crazy popularity, most color options and sizes are sold out. 🙁
American Eagle Boucle Sweater: This is incredibly similar to the Free People option shown above, the main difference being the neckline. It comes in a variety of color options, fits TTS and is the epitome of comfortable! Seriously, if you wanted the FP sweater, order this one, it’s just as good and much cheaper!
BLANKNYC ‘No Limit’ Suede Moto Jacket: This jacket is ALL the rage; it’s super trendy, great quality and takes any outfit from drab to fab in no time. With that being said, it’s still $100+ dollars ON SALE…and y’all, sometimes that’s just not in the budget. If you feel the same, I managed to find a couple of other options for you to consider!
Amazon Faux Suede Jacket: After scouring the internet looking for #NSALE dupes, I found this jacket on Amazon and knew that I had to include it. It’s ever so slightly shorter than the BLANKNYC version but not so short that I would call it cropped. NOTE: Size up.
Forever 21 Faux Suede Moto Jacket: I know the color is different than the other 2 shown above but I thought it was worth including anyways. It comes in 3 colors, fits TTS (though I size up) and is a nice alternative to the #NSALE option.
Rails Hunter Plaid Shirt: Y’all, this shirt is over $100 dollars ON SALE; it’s a plaid button up, I simply cannot justify that price tag. However, if you can, I would recommend sizing up.
BP. Plaid Shirt: This is also part of the #NSALE, in fact it’s the shirt that made me want to create this post in the first place. There are 4 color options, fits TTS (though I size up for a roomier fit) and is every bit worth the $$ even when it’s NOT on sale.
JC Penney Plaid Button Up: In addition to the BP button up, I thought it would be nice to include an option that’s found outside of Nordstrom. This classic button-up from JC Penney comes in a variety of colors, features a tunic length hem (great for leggings) and fits TTS!
BP. Textured V-Neck Sweater: This is one of the first things I purchased from the #NSALE; it’s lightweight, comfy and perfect for the upcoming fall season. Unfortunately, like many of the sale items, this is currently sold out. 🙁
Express Cotton Shaker Knit Sweater: In case you didn’t know, Express is my go-to retailer for sweaters. I bought a number of tops there last fall/winter and they have held up like a champ! This lightweight sweater is almost identical to the one from BP. and it comes in TWENTY-ONE color options! I know it’s a little bit more expensive than the one from Nordstrom but they go on sale a good bit and in my experience, are every bit worth the $$, even at regular price.
BP. Open Toe Mule: When I first saw these mules from BP. I thought they were cute but I wasn’t 100% sold. I ended up trying them anyways and didn’t LOVE them. Don’t get me wrong, they were super comfortable and easy to walk in, I just didn’t love the way it looked on my feet. However, if you DO like these, I’d go up a 1/2 size!
RDB ‘How it Goes’ Mule: Despite not loving the BP. mules, I am OBSESSED with these bad boys from Red Dress Boutique. They feature a thinner heel and are a touch higher, which for me, makes all the difference in the world. NOTE: Size up 1/2 size.
Halogen Black Mules: You guys know how obsessed I am with the mule trend, I wear them constantly and don’t know what my life looked like before them (dramatic, I know). However, as much as I love a good mule, I don’t want to pay over $50 dollars for a basic black pair…you know what I mean?! NOTE: Size up 1/2 size.
Journee Black Mules: $37.99 is a much better price for a basic black mule…at least for me. They’re comfortable, great quality and fit TTS for a mule (go up 1/2 size).
Steve Madden Rumble Bootie: These booties are ALL. THE. RAGE. They’re great for fall and look awesome with dark colored denim! NOTE: Size up 1/2 size.
Universal Thread Crissy Bootie: Y’all Target has been KILLING the shoe game lately; their quality has increased and their styles are super on trend. This Universal Thread ‘Crissy’ Bootie is the perfect dupe for the more popular Steve Madden version; it’s comfortable, high quality and will look great this fall with a pair of dark skinnies! NOTE: Size up 1/2 size.
Topshop Biker Jacket: A good faux leather jacket, everybody should have one in their closet! If you’re eyeing this bad boy, I would recommend sizing up as it feels a little snug in the arms.
H&M Biker Jacket: Okay, I know this isn’t EXACTLY the same, but it’s pretty darn close. It’s under $50 dollars and can take any outfit from plain to edgy in 2.5 seconds. NOTE: Size up!
Thread & Supply Wubby Pullover: I first saw this circling the internet last year and REALLY wanted to snag it, but if I’m being honest, I just wasn’t willing to pay $70+ dollars for a fleece pullover…please tell me I’m not the only one?! Despite not personally wanting to spend the $$, I’ve heard nothing but positive things about this hoodie, so if you’re in the market and want to give it a try, I don’t think it’s a waste at just over $50 bucks on sale.
Amazon Fleece Pullover: Y’all, I know this is not the best picture in the world but don’t let it scare you away; this fleece looks a lot more like the ‘Wubby’ pullover than the picture indicates. For just over $30 dollars I think this is a great option (the one I went for) if you’re not willing to splurge on the Thread & Supply one! NOTE: Fit is oversized. Keep that in mind when ordering!
Panacea Layered Lariat Necklace: These layered necklaces are super on trend and while I think they’re incredibly cute & chic, I don’t want to pay more than $25-$30 bucks for one.
SUGARFIX Layered Y-Chain Necklace: If you’re a fan of BaubleBar, I recommend checking out the SUGARFIX line at Target. They have trendy pieces at a great price point and make accessorizing your outfit(s) easy as pie! If you’re looking to try the layered necklace trend, give this a try!
Rebecca Minkoff Suede & Leather Satchel: You guys know how much I love a good handbag and this RM satchel looks perfect for the upcoming season.
Sole Society ‘Jess’ Vegan Satchel: If you guys have never looked at SC for handbags and accessories, I 100% recommend doing so. They have really high quality options that look a lot more expensive than their price tag would indicate!
Vince Camuto Kochelda Over-The-Knee Boot: This classic VC knee high boot is one of the most popular items during the #NSALE, and while I do think that they are incredibly high quality boots, I’m not willing to dish out $150+ on a pair of boots that are probably going to be too tight for my dancer calves…know what I mean?! However, if these are one of your wishlist items and you plan on taking the plunge, I recommend sizing up 1/2 a size.
Dr. Scholls Knee-High Boots: Yaaaasssssss! A comfortable knee-high boot that doesn’t break the bank…like not even close, hallelujah! I will say, if you have a wider calf, these probably won’t work for you…much like many of the other knee-high boots on the market. Le sigh. However, if you have a normal width calf, check these out, they’re INSANELY comfortable and are easy to pair with just about anything.
So that wraps up this #NSALE dupe post! I’m still on the hunt for a couple more (I’m looking at you BP. Cardi), but until then, I hope you found this informative and helpful! I did my best to include affordable, high quality items and hope that you like what I was able to find! If I manage to find any other dupes, I will be sure to update this post and let you know so that you can take a look!
Thank you for your support and thank you for continuing to be a part of my little corner of the internet; I appreciate you more than I can put into words. Until next time…
