I got my catalog! Whatcha all getting this year? I have no need for new clothes this year. I MAY splurge on the Sam Edelman studded flats! Studs!:love: Chesney Loafers.

@ame always love your picks.

I've unearthed a bunch of NWT things from nordies - I should really just return it all... :oops: I can use the credit to eat at Nordstroms. Eating is more important lolol.

I have no idea what I’ll get, but their curbside delivery is super awesome! It makes shopping so much easier for a mommy of two toddlers.

I looked at the catalog and didn't find anything I liked. I felt the same way last year. It seems like their selection has not been as good. I used to always find things I loved and had a hard time choosing what my budget could take.

Catalog looks smaller too! I'm so :oops: but I'm going to return a bunch of NWT stuff I got in past sales. I finally got around to rearranging my closet with the change of season and found all this Nordstrom stuff in bags :wall:. I'm so embarrassed.

The good thing -Nordstrom will always take their merchandise back. They don’t seem to be hooked on a time limit. As far as the catalog, I think this is just a taste of what will actually be available for the anniversary sale.

It's probably a good thing that I didn't find anything I liked. I think I have spent enough on a couple LV items and a new ring. DH might just shoot me.

Very little. I saw the whole lookbook (the ENTIRE sale) and this is probably the worst sale to date. Enough that I have a draft to Blake Nordstrom asking wtf happened to this sale and its prestige.

I am just getting my usual jeans (unfortunately in fat pant size), the vneck I liked from last year in as many colors as possible, the Zella pants I was hoping would be in it and are but only in one color, maybe another BFD Circle Cardi.

I wanted a Simple Human mirror, the one like last year that I regret that I had to return for space reasons, and the one this year is the base model so I am not going to bother.

There is one skincare set I might get because it's like a mini sampler from a brand I've wanted to try, but ....I was really disappointed.

Not anymore. They have drastically changed that to their detriment. You have like 30 days now, and all returns are now at the SA's discretion. So you could get someone that doesn't want to lose commission who denies you only because of that.

I hope they take it. They might not.

A v-neck is just what my wardrobe needs. Which one do you like?

Wow, that is new and not good. I usually return things pretty quick but I would completely come unglued if a return was rejected for some ridiculous reason. It would probably be the last time I would shop there. I have had great experiences up till now, but that would be my limit.

Dude I got back $330! Couldn't find one pair of wit and wisdom Jean's which I may have purchased in store and took $28 go for it. The associate was so patient and kind. We had to search my orders going back to 2015. Next time I search at home in advance and jot them all down. Yes I said next time...:lol-2::oops:

I’ve had great luck returning - Most recently. They even took back a few things I bought last year, to find that I bought one size too large. Searched my card, found the items and gave credit to me to purchase something that fits properly. Also, we have a “return counter” at our local Nordstrom - everything is returnable. Maybe it depends on the region you’re in? Not sure why they would only go 30 days - I know that “Nordstrom Rack” has a 30 day return period but not aware of this at the actual Nordstrom Store.

Nordstrom rack says 45 days on my receipt. I literally have a bag in my foyer that apparently has been sitting there since April 4. I called customer service and they said give it a shot if you'll roll past a store bahahaa.

When I did my returns at Nordstrom tonight...yikes... didn't know that we needed to match my items with orders so yeah we spent a bit of time searching - me on my phone and the sweetheart of an SA on the computer. He pulled out a laptop too. :oops:. We went as far back as October 2015. I apologized profusely and said, "now I know to get all the order numbers and dates beforehand."

I have more to return. I thought I'd go out and dress up in jeans (yes I said dress up in jeans :lol:) but the past few years of being remotely employed then unemployed really has led to me wearing lots of stretchy stuff and 3 pairs of shoes - flip flops, sneakers and Costco shearling boots.

The great thing is that I can eat with my Nordstrom credit.

Great! Glad it’s 45 days and glad that you were able to return all of your items. This is why I shop at Nordstrom!

I will admit that returning made me cry a lot afterwards for the rest of the night. The items belonged to a different PB who had different ideas and aspirations about fashion and her future.

Woot! Got $428.52 back today from Nordstrom and Nordstrom rack! Nordstrom rack did scan the items and they were eligible for return still despite being past 45 days.

Thanks to @ame and @goldenfire, I stuck around the rack after my return and found a few liebeskind bags :confused2:. I couldn't resist the price! $79.97 plus tax.

The leather is supple and the bag is so light!

It's a halogen v neck tunic.

The changes are chainwide, and at the SA's discretion. It's because so many people were abusing the policy, for example buying a bunch of stuff, wearing it once, then returning it like 6 months later. or buying makeup there, using it, then returning it after they rebought it cheaper vs asking for a price adjustment.

I got the Santa Clara Sporty in the street grey. The mannequin makes it look more rigid than it is! The bag is probably stuffed to emphasize shape. It's more petite than it looks in the pic lol. I'm going to return a rigid Tory burch cross body I bought a couple years ago that never came out of its box and split time in my foyer closet and now in my master closet. No bueno lol. This is more my style with the slouchiness and the weight is wonderfully light. Meh, if mom fusses in a month about a birthday gift I may offer the liebeskind to her. Then she can show off to her friends "my daughter didn't give me grandchildren but she bought me a nice quality leather bag despite being an unemployed widow :confused2:."

PintoBean I love that bag, the color you got is my favorite!! Love that grey. I can imagine how great the bag looks in person. They always look more stiff and rigid in the pics and the gorgeous leather quality can't really be seen in the photos either. Such a great find!

Alright I started at 3AM and just finished. 39 items. :lol-2: I'll end up with like 10. I did pickup for every item I could. I also have some more things to return from the near past.

@ame I should have asked you for your SA and have him put my order in so he could get my credit. I'm on page 100 on the other forum lolol.

There's really one SA I'd regularly say hi to in the past but avoid like the plague now. Shes the mother of a friend of my former SIL. She came to the funeral. Last time I ran into her she asked me if I'd seen my SIL lately. Still too touchy for me so ...

Seriously, he would gladly do it.

I get up at 2am every year to put in "backup orders" for stuff he can't get bec it's not in his store or it sells out before he can put the order in. I return any extra dupes

There's only a couple things I want to see in person, assuming my store gets them...Nothing shows as in any of my stores. I am going after work to look at a few things, and hopefully don't go any further overboard.

Also not listed I got some Smartwool socks and two bras.
