This is not a drill, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is a little over a week away! If you’ve never heard about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale then you must have been living under a rock. Seriously, it is the biggest sale OF THE YEAR, and if you go anywhere near social media or follow bloggers, there is no way you can avoid it!
