Let’s get right into this, shall we? If you’ve been following along on IG stories, it’s likely that you’ve seen that the first round of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale was…well, rough. A lot of the items were immediately sold out, with no restocks in sight. Plus, many people were very upset with the limited range of items during this year’s sale so we thought, let’s find some other budget friendly picks outside of the sale. This is perfect for those of your who might not want to spend the money on some of the pricier Nordstrom picks or if you missed out on an item you were lusting after!

Barefoot Dreams Throw

The #1 question on the blog? What makes a throw worth $150? That’s a good question, because we don’t even know. This Amazon throw is the same uber-soft sherpa fluff that the Barefoot Dreams throw is at more than a quarter of the price ($34) !

Shop the look:

Leopard Print Skirt

One of the first items to sell out during the Nordstrom sale was this leopard midi skirt from Something Navy. This option from American Eagle is fully stocked in all sizes and it’s less than $20! To be honest, we like the AE print better!

Shop the look:

Silk Lace Trim Cami

Another item that was crazy popular during this year’s Nordstrom Anniversary sale were these satin lace-trimmed camis by BP. Interestingly, though, for the same price point, you could buy almost the exact same item at Abercrombie & Fitch. Even though the camis are sold out on Nordstrom, they’re fully stocked at Abercrombie.

Wedge Sneakers

Even as we were typing this, we had to make sure to keep these two straight. The Caslon wedge sneakers sold out quickly during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but the Amazon dupe is eerily similar and only $20.

Shop the post:

Leopard Cardigan

These cardigans have a few slight differences, but if you’re looking for a long alternative to the leopard cardigan that is sold out from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, this is a great option. Yes, the BP cardigan is going to be a little thicker/furrier, but it’s a great alternative nonetheless! And it’s half the price!

Shop the post:

Black Leather Slip-on Sneakers

This is one find that we are super excited about! Even though Amazon Prime Day will be over when this deal goes live, these Amazon black leather slip-on sneakers are $50 and incredibly great quality. Compare with the $225 Vince sneakers from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Shop the post:

Beaded Statement Earrings

This might be the one dupe that we are most proud of. There’s a whole variety of statement earrings linked below from Amazon that range from $10-15, while the Baublebar variation are $38, even on sale. Quite a few different options to add a pop of color to your wardrobe!

Shop the post:

Athletic Shoes

Athletic shoes always go quick during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, but luckily DSW is having a big summer blowout right now with an extra 20% off with code YAYSUMMER. If you missed out on some of the sneakers from the sale, there are some very similar ones available from Nike and Adidas!

Shop the post:

Basic Tees

This next one is just a can’t miss sale! Madewell is having an additional 30% off sale with code VERYRARE. The BP tees from the Nordstrom sale are on sale for $12, but the pocket tees are under $10 with the discount code! There’s 12 different colors and mostly stocked in most colors!

Shop the post:

Long Cardigans

Every year, the BP cardigans are one of the hallmarks of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. This year, there’s a few different options of colors and sizes, but this under $20 cardigan on Amazon is eerily similar!
