Nordstrom sales don’t come around all that often, and when they do, they’re big—like Anniversary Sale big. So when one kicks off that includes over 42,000 discounted items at up to 80% off like the retailer’s current Black Friday sale does, you don’t hang around to think about it. You act fast.

Though I’m more than guilty of using the low-to-high price filter during a Nordstrom sale, this Black Friday, it’s the more luxurious end of the spectrum that I’m focusing my efforts on. After all, it’s not every day that sought-after pieces from Khaite, Balenciaga, Nensi Dojaka, BBY FAR, Commission, and more enter 50%-off territory. But trust me—they, more than anything else in the sale, won’t last long. So without further ado, scroll down to shop the most splurge-worthy finds from Nordstrom’s Black Friday designer sale. If you have expensive taste like me, you won’t leave this story empty-handed. 

Slime time. 

The prettiest of all.

Two waistbands are better than one. 

I’ve stayed up nights thinking about these. 

Everyone needs a strand of these. 

Snagging this dress on sale would be a fashion miracle.

The coziest. 

The perfect work tote.

Not your average tank top. 

Who doesn’t want cashmere socks this time of year?

A little piece of nature with you all the time. 

Pastels for fall, groundbreaking. 

I can’t get enough of this top. 

Prepare for compliments.

A gorgeous LBD anyone?

Pair these with socks and a miniskirt. 

A chic alternative to any ol’ long-sleeve tee.

Clean up in aisle three. My jaw is on the floor. 

Simply necessary. 


Oh you need these (and so do I).

For everyday wear. 

Commission is the brand to watch this year. 

If anyone I know is listening, this is what I want this holiday season. 

This top will go with everything. 

I don’t know about you, but I still love the look of bike shorts. 


The barely-there skirt trend continues. 


For all your winter lounging. 

A good belt can make a big sartorial impact. 

A work of art. 

Stay warm, folks. 

Don’t fear the cutouts. 

Dreaming of these. 


No pants, no problem.
