Nordstrom's Having a Sale on Brand New Stuff!

The only not-totally-great thing about the sale hitting Nordstrom's stores and website today is that it needs a new name. "Anniversary Sale" sounds like an afterthought—like "hey, it's our company's birthday, we should probably put some stuff on sale?". But this is anything but that, because unlike pretty much every sale I can think of, these discounts aren't on end-of-season stuff or excess inventory.

Instead, the Anniversary Sale marks down new, never-been-shopped items, from Elizabeth & James accessories to Diane von Furstenberg clothes and Vince Camuto handbags. Apparently the Nordstrom people believe in going big for their anniversary. So the sale sort of deserves a name with a little more gravitas or glittery excitement behind it, no? Click through below to see some of our favorite items, then shop the full sale here. (And hurry since it only lasts two weeks, ending August 5. Can't celebrate your anniversary forever.)

Looks way more expensive, like something the designers (the Olsen twins) would've spent $600 on and pair with leather pants and Hermès handbags.

Basic leather skirts are never not a good investment, because they're polished and classic yet still have a bit of swagger to them.

Marries the comfort of a sweater with the sharpness of a moto jacket. You'll live in it all fall.

Every girl needs a dress with a print that's busy enough to make them feel done. It'll be your answer to "I have a dinner in 20 minutes WHAT do I wear?"

It's sort of a wonder we don't see thsi color combination more often. It's gorgeous, and perfect for fall.

Thanks to the perfectly crackled and faded patina, they've got worn in, vintage-y looking street cred, like something your Mom wore for riding horses in the '70s and just finally passed down to you.
