I'm a Picky Shopper, and This Is What I'd Buy From the Sales Right Now

I know what you're thinking: OMG, Nicole. Thank you so much. You've made sale shopping so much easier for us, you selfless angel. What did we do to deserve you? But before you go on (in your head), I'm going to have to stop you because the truth is I did this for myself.

It's true! I'm no angel; I just wanted an excuse to stop procrastinating and finally scan all the sales, and in the process, I found more than fits in my cart, budget, or closet—38 items to be exact—and each and every one of them is seriously wish list–worthy. From jackets and bags to sweaters, jeans, boots, and sneakers, below, you'll find what I consider to be the very best of the many, many marked-down items right now, at every price point. To see and shop all my finds, just keep scrolling.

Next: My mom said these are the best gifts at Nordstrom—I love them all.


Since starting as an intern back in 2013, Nicole Akhtarzad Eshaghpour has held several roles here at Who What Wear, and she is currently Editor-at-Large. It was a less expected route, seeing as she was graduating from business school at USC when this all began, but it has turned out to be the best one for her. Fast-forward to 2024, and she's moved to NYC from her hometown of Beverly Hills and spends her workdays a little differently from when she was an intern starting out. Currently, she focuses on a weekly mélange of shopping content. As far as her personal style goes, she's largely drawn to classic pieces and neutral basics but will always make an exception for something colorful, printed, or bejeweled as long as it's deemed worthy enough. After all, the only thing she loves more than a good party is dressing up for one. On weekdays, she can usually be found at home eating something delicious for dinner and trying to force her husband to watch Summer House.
