Last Chance [Fully Stocked] NSale Buys for Him & Her

Aug 2, 2018

We are nearing the FINAL DAYS of the Nordstrom Sale! If you’ve given up out of frustration that everything you want is out of stock, I don’t blame you ? but many of you requested a “last chance” NSale post roundup–so, here it is! I also wanted to include some great guys’ staples as that was something that I meant to do but never got around to!

I picked 12 girls’ items and 12 guys’ items that you’ll love, won’t want to miss, and (at the time of my choosing them) are fully stocked! Prices go up on August 6th, so snap up your last remaining purchases while you can!

Nordstrom Sale–12 In-Stock Women’s Picks:


(Click on any item to shop it!) 

Faux leather leggings:

There are quite a few pairs of faux leather leggings on sale! They’re one of my favorite wardrobe staples for fall and winter–for more ideas on how to style them, see my post “how to style leather leggings.”

ASICS Running Shoes: 

I was actually SHOCKED to find this pair fully stocked! If you’ve been looking for a good pair of running shoes that isn’t neon (bleh!) you’ll want to snap these up! I have really flat feet and need good running shoes (Nikes do NOT cut it) and ASICS is one of my favorite brands (Brooks is the other one–I own this pair!)

Blush leather jacket: 

Another item I couldn’t believe hasn’t sold out yet–this pretty blush leather jacket! It will go with everything and I absolutely love the color. It’s made by Halogen, and one of my favorite scores from the sale last year was a Halogen leather jacket and I wear it all the time! It’s really well made and the leather is super soft.

Charlotte Tilbury Perfect Skin palette: 

I really love Charlotte Tilbury products and the fact that she’s made a palette with all her beautiful bronzer, blush, and highlighter shades in one is so convenient!

Natori Feathers Bra: 

This was the most recommended bra out of ALL of them for our Real Women Approved Reader Roundup of Bras + Underwear! (See the full post here! Lot’s of the best bras and undies are included in the Nordstrom sale!)

Urban Decay Set: 

I absolutely love Urban Decay and they are one of my go-to brands for eyeshadow and I am OBSESSED with their makeup setting spray that comes in this set! I bought it for my wedding day and I use it all the time–whenever I’m going out at night or know I’ll be out all day without a chance to touch up my makeup. It works especially well to keep your makeup from melting off your face in the heat, haha! This kit is a great value with a shadow palette (with all beautiful neutral colors), setting spray, and eyeshadow primer!

Waterproof Black Booties: 

This brand, Blondo, is one of my favorites because everything they make is waterproof. These black booties are classics that will last years and you never have to worry about wearing them in rain or slush!

Waxed Barbour Coat: 

I love a classic Barbour jacket and this one is perfect for fall weather–tailgates, pumpkin patches–anything outdoors, this will be a go-to for years! Plus, it’s wax-coated, which keeps cold out and water out–so it’s great to wear in all weather!

T3 Blow Dryer: 

I just got this blow dryer and I absolutely LOVE it. It’s so lightweight, significantly smaller than most blow-dryers, and has multiple heat settings, which is really nice! It dries hair really fast and has fancy ionic qualities that reduce frizz!

Reversible Tee: 

I own this tee in the long-sleeve version and absolutely love the fact that it’s crewneck on one side, and then you can turn it around for a v-neck. I love the sleeves on the short sleeve version–they’re longer and more fitted than most, making it polished enough to dress up and wear to the office! Comes in lot’s of colors too!

Work Trousers: 

I know it’s hard to find a good work pant that doesn’t feel frumpy, and these trousers are office-appropriate pants you’ll actually get excited to wear. (Note: they’re sold out in “black” but fully stocked in “black tech”–just FYI!)

Polished Hoodie: 

For those who absolutely adore sweats but want to look suitable to go out in public, a hoodie like this is the trick! It looks just as cute with jeans as it does with yoga pants. Linking more similar cute sweatshirts below:

Bonobos Henley: 

Neal’s #1 favorite wardrobe staple is a great henley, and there are SO many on sale! Some of his favorites are from Bonobos!

Levi’s Jeans: 

Another Neal wardrobe staple. He owns two pairs of jeans–seriously, two pair! These Levi’s are one of them! They’re not too skinny (for those guys who are VERY anti skinny jeans) but they’re slim enough to still be very polished and stylish!

Versatile Chelsea Boots:

Neal owns this splurge-worthy pair from Vince, but this new identical pair just came out and they are essentially the same for over 1/3rd of the price!

Versatile Blazer: 

Every guy needs a versatile blazer that he can dress up for the office or dress down for the weekend. This one will look really sharp with trousers for the office. Or also really nice with jeans to go to a party or dinner! It under $200, it’s an absolute steal.

Stylish Chinos: 

Another necessary staple in every guy’s wardrobe–pants that aren’t suit pants, but aren’t jeans. Chinos are a really nice in-between but it can be easy to get your hands on a bad, frumpy, ill-fitting pair. We love these because they’re slim fit but not skinny, and come in lot’s of great colors!

Polished sneakers: 

Neal has these Cole Haans and absolutely LOVES them. If your guy is one that insists on wearing sneakers everywhere–get him this pair. They are insanely comfortable, polished, and aren’t offensive to wear to dinner.

Navy Topcoat: 

Every guy needs a polished overcoat to wear to work, dinner, weddings, and anywhere that requires an extra layer of warmth while still maintaining a respectful dress code. (If he really thinks he can get away with wearing that North Face everywhere–this is us telling him he can’t.)

Upgraded Gym Shorts: 

If he’s still wearing those old basketball shorts from college around the house, these will be a WELCOME upgrade for the gym, and just general lounging ?

Nice socks: 

Neal’s biggest pet peeve with mens style in general is when men wear bad socks. They should always match your outfit. Yes, they are seen more often than you think. They should be long. No skin should be showing when you cross your legs and ABSOLUTELY NO WHITE! These dress socks are only $9.99 a pair and for that price, you should get two of each!

Polished (affordable) watch: 

Guys LOVE watches–but not everyone loves how much they can cost ? Neal always recommends this brand for a great design at an affordable price!

Super soft (and nice) v-neck: 

James Purse is known for making tees that feel like butter–if you can’t get your guy to stop wearing t-shirts–that’s okay, because he’ll still look stylish in this one! It’s casual but polished at the same time!

Nice luggage: 

Practical, nondescript, and as manly as carry-on luggage can get. You can’t beat the price on this suitcase!

Happy shopping! Don’t forget, prices go back up on August 6th!
