Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Fashion Blogger Picks on a Budget

The Nordstrom Sale is finally open to the public, and there's a lot to shop before prices go up August 6...

Nicky Hilton's Striped Tee, Denim Shorts, and Black Tote Bag Look for Less

Nicky Hilton Striped Tee and Black Tote Look for Less
If there was a signature casual outfit for the season of summer, this would likely be it. A black and white striped tee with denim shorts will never fail, and the ones we found from Kohl's are a major deal at under $20. They also have a 4-inch inseam, so you will be plenty covered while still wearing a trendy pair of distressed denim shorts. A bag can dress up tee and denim essentials like these that you may even already have in your closet, and we love the luxurious look of this ALDO bag - and that it's attainable without being on a waitlist to buy it for the same price as your car!

Nordstrom Sale Picks - grab before the sale opens to the public!
Today is the last day to shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale with your card before it opens up to the public! Of course I'm scrambling to add more things to my cart, although all I really need is a new winter coat and some waterproof boots. But then again I've always wanted to try this Kiehl's shampoo...and Miss Fleur could use a cute new cardigan, right? Head to if there's anything else on your wishlist before the rest of the world starts shopping bright and early July 20th!

Gigi Hadid's Chanel Sequin Flap Bag & Vogue Eyewear Look for Less

Gigi Hadid Blue Sequin Chanel Bag Look for Less
Gigi Hadid's jeans and tank look is always a good idea, but her accessory game here is one to note. Her blue sequin Chanel bag retails at $3,600...quite the investment! And you know it's a unique piece when it's tough to find a solid look-alike for less cash; especially one that doesn't look cheap. Her sunglasses are actually from her own line with Vogue Eyewear, and are fairly affordable compared to most designer glasses at $140. We found you a blue oval pair for much less though from Free People!

Get the Look: Kylie Jenner in Alexander Wang Leggings and a White Bra Top

Kylie Jenner Logo Leggings and White Bra Top Look for Less
Whether you're a fan of Kylie or not, you can't deny that Forbes' most recent cover model has some fearlessness when it comes to showing off her fashion sense! Personally, I wouldn't think to reach for activewear for a night out in Hollywood, but if anyone can pull it off and make us think otherwise, it's Kylie. She was spotted wearing these Alexander Wang leggings with a white bra top, and clear Yeezy heels to complete the most curve-hugging yet casual ensemble (maybe ever). Her top is from Naked Wardrobe, whose prices are actually quite wallet-friendly.
