What to Buy at Nordstrom’s End of Year Sale

The end of the year in retail means sales, sales, and more sales. And one I never miss is the Nordstrom End of Year Event, where you can take up to 60% off of already reduced merchandise.

There are over 400 pages of discounted products. And some are truly terrible. I mean TERRIBLE.

But a few I don’t want you to miss.

So today, I’m sharing my top 10 picks, covering a range of categories and sizes.

Please note, prices are subject to change and sizes will sell out.

What to Buy at Nordstrom’s End of Year Sale


Floral Balloon Sleeve Blouse



Subtle sparkle and a flattering V-neck make this a go-to for dressing up your favorite black bottoms in the New Year.


Twist Neck Satin Blouse



We featured this pretty twist-neck blouse earlier this month; now, it’s on sale for just under $40, available in red, pink, and ivory (above). Pair with your favorite bottoms, from black pants or a skirt to casual jeans.


Metallic Blouse



This going-out blouse gives major Dynasty vibes, and I’m here for it. I ordered to pair with our favorite coated jeans for a sparkly winter date night look.


Water Repellent Front Zip Jacket



Love this light-weight, water repellent coat for early fall or spring. Unlike other more casual styles, this has an elegant drape. Available in navy (above) or olive in XS – XXL.


Atwell High-Pile Fleece Jacket



We live in warm fleeces during the winter months on the east coast, and this one by UGG is fabulous. It’s on sale for under $90 in this cheerful red. Also available for the regular price in tan or black. It pairs perfectly with jeans or leggings and boots.


Love Pleat Belted Dress



If you wear women’s sizes, please consider the brand City Chic the next time you shop. Their styles are modern, stylish and wonderfully flattering. And unlike other plus-size brands, they cut their clothes understanding that your body has a shape and curves worth highlighting. This dress is my favorite of their current selection, and would look great with suede pumps or knee-high boots.


Kira Chain Shoulder Bag



I have an older version of this gold-chain shoulder bag and whenever I carry it, I’m always happy I splurged. So if something like this is on your wish list, this one is marked down, with savings of $180.


Kira Enamel Huggie Hoop Earrings



These were an immediate add to cart for me. I love the neutral color combination and tortoise-like finish.


Open Front Plush Wrap



This chic open front ivory wrap would look lovely as a layer over a tonal turtleneck.


Marilyn Straight Leg Jeans



NYDJ have been a reader favorite brand for years. And the Marilyn Straight Leg is our top selling style. Available in regular and petite in 00 – 18. SIZE DOWN at least one. These run full and will stretch.
And this straight leg cut is a nice alternative to a skinny with a leg cut to sit over any of your ankle boots.

Megan, what do you think of the wide leg jeans? I just ordered a Madewell pair from the sale. Not sure how I will like them, but I figure I can always use the free return option if they don't work for me.

Thank you for your recommendation of City Chic for plus ladies. I fall between regular and plus size. I truly appreciate a company who understands that plus ladies would like to wear clothing that does not look like a tent. This has been one of my pet peeves with designers/retailers for years. Thank you for all your hard work and inspiration. You're the best!
