40 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Finds Selling Out Fast

Keep your Prime Day and Fourth of July deals—the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021 is hands down the most beloved fashion and beauty sale of summer. After weeks of screenshotting and daydreaming about our favorite early access deals, the event is finally open for all to shop, both online and in stores through August 8. This means you have a full 11 calendar days to transfer any wishlist items directly into your cyber carts. 

If you’ve shopped the big blowout before, you know that most of the good stuff gets picked over during the days of early access. All those colorful Tory Burch sandals, pretty Vince dresses, and La Mer sets you’ve been eyeing? They all fly off Nordstrom’s virtual shelves once Nordy Club members get their hands on them. But don’t worry too much: We *just* combed through the deals pages and found plenty of great sale picks still worth having across fashion, beauty, travel, and home. There’s no guesstimating how long these items will be in stock for (and chances are low sizes will get replenished), so if you see something that gets your heart racing, don’t wait around for a ~stealthier~ shopper to snap it up. 

Thousands of products are marked down during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, so to help you find the pieces actually worth your money, we rounded up all the sure-to-sell-out items you need on your radar. Read up on everything else about the sale, below.

When is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021?

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is open to the general public from July 28 through August 8, meaning you’ll have 11 days before the discounts turn back into full-priced pumpkins. For those of you eager to leaf through the racks in person—there’s nothing quite like feeling your way through rows of silk and cotton—you can head to Nordstrom stores during regular business hours. If you prefer to browse from the comfort of your couch (who doesn’t?), you can get to shopping now.

The Best Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Deals 2021

These Leggings Have Thousands of 5-Star Reviews—And They’re Finally On Sale

Apparently I’ve been sleeping on Zella leggings, because all of a sudden they’re all I hear people talking about—especially one pair in particular, the brand’s Live-In High-Waist Leggings. I’m all about the leggings life, but it’s hard to find a solid (by which I also mean opaque) pair that holds up over time, whether I’m running around the park or Netflix-ing on the couch (which I’m doing more of these days). And although I’m beyond my days of $10 H&M leggings, I also don’t love spending a silly amount of money. So when I heard about Zella, I was intrigued—and now that the brand’s leggings are majorly discounted during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2021, I think I need them.

These leggings have 7,200 reviews on Nordstrom’s site—and you know how people really only review things when they either love or hate them? People love these. “Must haves!” one review raves. “The name LIVE IN makes total sense. I truly do live in these! My favorite part is the high waist because it…never falls or rolls etc. and also, the shape of the seams on the back?! Makes every bum look lifted and cute!”

“I’ve tried all (well maybe not ALL) brands of leggings—some of which specialize in athletic wear,” says another. “They were either too thin, sagged after wearing, didn’t have enough compression, drooped down, looked flimsy etc. This brand is the only one that didn’t have any of these issues.” Other reviewers swear they hold up after endless washes, rave that the seams stay intact, and love that they’re thick enough to provide coverage and to feel comfortable—as though you’re actually wearing pants—but not too warm.

Consider me persuaded to add to cart. The Zella leggings typically cost anywhere from $59 to $69, but they’re on sale for $38.90 right now during Nordstrom’s Anniversary event—which officially launched today. So whether you’re looking to round out your leggings drawer with a brand new pair or you want to get a handful of these cult-favorite pairs to rotate throughout the week, this is the time to do it (seriously). 

They come in sizes XXS through XXL, and if you’re the type who loves a new workout outfit to remotivate (me, that’s me), shop the top-rated Zella leggings below. PS: We rounded up even more incredible clothing deals at Nordstrom right now.

Annie Ta is Making Pinterest a Positive Corner of the Internet

I build all these experiences at Pinterest with all the teams that I work with, and sometimes I’m like, “Do people really love that?” and we received this incredible letter, a really thoughtful note from someone who had seen this experience, and how it impacted their life. That was one of those moments where I was like, “Wow, we’re doing this. We can really build experiences that change people online.” That meant so much to me and to the team of getting this personal letter, this person didn’t have to do that. They just like, googled our address, wrote a handwritten note and sent it to the team. And that was like, I can make a career out of this thing.

I was also eight months pregnant at the time, so I was very emotional about the whole thing. But I was like, “Wow, I can be a mom, and I can do this.”

How do you typically deal with rejection at work?

I think that breaking down rejection into the bits and pieces of what you’re looking for, can really help to reframe your perspective, to help you achieve what you want, without it being kind of this gargantuan scary thing that’s happening to you in your life. How can you think about getting those opportunities in different places, or finding people to help you get those skills? For me, figuring out what skills I may need to build on can be a really interesting and fun learning opportunity, rather than an idea of rejection. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason, and you can learn from everything that happens in your life.

What’s the best piece of career advice you’ve personally received?

I remember struggling a lot with how to lead. I was telling my manager how I was trying to do things like someone else, and he said to me, “Annie, why don’t you just try to lead as yourself? Why don’t you think about leading using your own strengths and what you’re good at?” That really changed things quite a bit for me, because I struggled to be super confident and assertive in meetings. I am the kind of person that really leads through building relationships and connections. The fact that someone gave me the space and advice to really think that through, that I as a unique human being could lead a little bit differently, has really helped me in my career and in a lot of ways.

I use it a lot now, in my day to day as I mentor women and BIPOC folks within Pinterest. That’s like a passion of mine. How might I really help other people like me succeed in places like Pinterest, where we may not always feel super represented? We have to take that on for ourselves in a lot of ways, and no one’s going to fight for us if we don’t fight for ourselves.

What’s your biggest at-work challenge?

My biggest workplace challenge is balancing it all. As a mother, as a partner, as a woman, I feel like there is a lot of pressure to take on everything. I have grown up with a very specific mentality being the daughter of immigrants — you work hard. You support your family and I think that my biggest challenge has been figuring out, how do I balance the work side of things? How do I be there for my family and how do I be there for myself?

One of my greatest lessons learned about this last year and becoming a mom – really doing it remotely with not a lot of help – was that by taking time for myself, that 20 minutes in the morning that we’re talking about, I’m actually better at everything else, by setting that boundary. I’m a better person, I’m happier, I’m healthier. I figured out something that works for me and it gives me a break. And I don’t have to give 130% to everything I do every second of the day. Because if I give a little bit more to myself, I can be there a little bit more for everybody else.

After a successful productive day, what’s your favorite low-stakes treat?

Ice cream. Anything that has salted caramel in it.

If you weren’t in your current career, what would you be?

I love fashion. I think I’d be a creative director at a fashion brand.

The U.S. Women’s Soccer Team Is Still Denied Equal Pay—So Title Nine Is Writing Them a $1M Check

Missy Park, CEO and founder of women’s apparel company Title Nine, was watching LFG—the HBO documentary on the fight for equal pay in women’s soccer—when she had a million-dollar, rage-induced epiphany. “I was just getting so mad. Yes with U.S. Soccer, but also a little bit frustrated with myself,” she says. “Maybe I can’t do everything [to fix the pay gap], but I can do something.” So she turned to her wife, and asked how much it would cost her company to close the pay gap faced by Megan Rapinoe, Alex Morgan and co.

It was a big number, but Park was all in.

On July 28, Title Nine announced they’re making a game-changing difference for the women of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team with a $1 million donation. The number represents the maximum pay gap between what the women’s team was paid and what the U.S. men’s team would have been paid for winning the six games leading up to the Olympics.

By now, we all know the facts: The women of the USWNT bring in more revenue, more championships, and more viewers than their male counterparts—and still, they’re not paid equally. They’ve become icons in the fight for women’s equality, though their legal battle with their employer U.S. Soccer is ongoing. (After their suit for equal pay was initially dismissed by a judge, the players filed an appeal last week for their right to a trial.)

Outside of the courtroom, the USWNT has inspired stadiums filled with tens of thousands of people to chant “Equal Pay!,” driven record jersey sales, and even helped drive a shift in major retailers increasing their investment in women’s sports. They’ve also inspired some big sponsors to start writing some big checks. Following the team’s historic 2019 World Cup win in which the players faced a pay gap of $23,000 each, Secret deodorant made up the difference, calling out U.S. Soccer in the process.

The $1 million donation made to the USWNT Players Association by Title Nine, a small female-founded women’s apparel company based in Berkley that’s comprised of 92% women, is the biggest ever. The goal, Park says, is not to make some headlines with a one-time check, but to really move the needle on equal pay for women in sports and beyond. “Money matters—it’s how we connote value in this society,” says Park in explaining why it was so important that Title Nine’s donation go directly into player’s pockets. “We want them to take that money and do with it as they please.”

To help elevate the cause, Title Nine also announced the creation of the Kick In for Equal Pay fund that will encourage other corporations and individual supporters to chip in. “I’m already reaping the benefits of this team. I have a son and a daughter and they get to see how they perform in the brightest lights under the heaviest pressure,” Park says. “I think we all need to step up to the plate.” Title Nine will be matching individual contributions up to $250,000.

Title Nine is named after the landmark legislation that prohibited gender-based discrimination in schools, opening the floodgates for generations of girls and women to participate in sports. So it’s safe to say this issue is close to the core values of the company. “We want women to lead, and to risk, and to own—and do it on equal footing, on an equal playing field,” Park says. “The battle that these women are fighting is the same battle that all of us are fighting, and a win on the soccer field, hopefully soon, will translate into wins in the workplace.”

Katie Ledecky Just Made History As the First Woman to Win Gold in the 1500m Freestyle

It’s finally here: The Olympics 2021 officially kicked off in Tokyo on Friday, July 23, and wow, it was worth the wait. These Summer Olympics have already been historic for a number of pandemic-related reasons: the postponement, crowd-free competition, and athletes who have already withdrawn after testing positive for the coronavirus. But on a brighter note, the Tokyo Games are already historic for women athletes.

Women won more medals in 2016 and 2018 for Team USA than male athletes and are on track to take home the most glory in Tokyo too; this year six major countries—including the U.S., Canada, Australia, Great Britain, China, and Russia (whose athletes will be competing for the Russian Olympic Committee, as the doping ban against the country is still in place)—have more women athletes competing than men.

But it’s not just about numbers. Women athletes are about to have an epic run at the Olympic and Paralympic games this summer—the women of Team USA Basketball will be going for their seventh consecutive gold medal (some dynasty-level stuff right there), Allyson Felix will be competing in her fifth Olympics (while helping to pay for childcare for other Olympian moms), Katie Ledecky will be gunning for the chance to be the first woman to win the most career gold medals (in any sport), Carissa Moore and Bryce Wettstein will have a shot at becoming the first women to ever win Olympic medals in surfing and skateboarding (both new Olympic sports), Scout Bassett will be get another shot at Paralympic gold, and Simone Biles will be being, well, Simone Biles.

You’re going to want to watch it all. Here are the sports and iconic athletes to keep your eye on at the 2021 Olympics.

1. Gymnastics

Simone Biles. Need we say more?

The GOAT will be competing at her second Olympics as the greatest gymnast—of any gender—in history. In addition to debuting moves never completed on the Olympic stage, she’s in the running (along with swimmer Katie Ledecky) to become the woman to win the most career gold medals in any sport.

But it’s not just Biles you’ll want to watch. The 2021 Women’s Gymnastics team is stacked with talent. Also on the squad: Sunisa Lee, Jordan Chiles, Grace McCallum, Jade Carey, and MyKayla Skinner. Together they could sweep the top spots on the podium in every event, making them the first team to ever take home gold in every event in the competition.

Following the qualification round on July 25, it’s official: the Women’s Gymnastics Team has qualified for the team finals on July 27. Not only that, but Biles qualified for  all four event finals, plus the all-around! As the Team USA Twitter account put it, “Just goat things.”

Ultimately, Biles and Lee qualified for the all-around final on July 29, the bar final on August 1, and the beam final on August 3. Biles and Carey will compete in the vault finals on August 1 and the floor final on August 2.  

Simone Biles Has Also Pulled Out of the Gymnastics All-Around Individual Final at the 2021 Olympics

UPDATE—July 27, 2021, 11:13 a.m.: After the shocking announcement that Simone Biles pulled out of the gymnastics team final at the Olympics 2021, Biles spoke out about her decision. “I’m just dealing with things internally that will get fixed in the next couple of days,” BBC News reported.

“After the performance that I did, I didn’t want to go into any of the other events second-guessing myself, so I thought it was better if I took a step back and let these girls go out there and do the job, and they did just that,” Biles said, per USA Today.

She also discussed the role of therapy. “Therapy has helped a lot as well as medicine,” Biles said. “Whenever you get in high-stress situations, you kind of freak out and don’t know really know how to handle all of those emotions especially at the Olympic Games.”

Biles spoke out about her mental health and dealing with the immense pressure that comes with being the GOAT after the gymnastics qualifying round on Sunday. She became the first gymnast since 1992 to qualify for all six women’s events—the team final, the all-around, and the four individual apparatus finals—despite the fact that it was an off day for her. “It wasn’t an easy day or my best but I got through it,” she wrote on Instagram. “I truly do feel like I have the weight of the world on my shoulders at times. I know I brush it off and make it seem like pressure doesn’t affect me but damn sometimes it’s hard hahaha! The Olympics is no joke!”

Following her withdrawal, Biles shared the motivation behind her decision to “focus on [her] well-being. There’s more to life than gymnastics,” she said.

“This Olympic Games, I wanted it to be for myself. I came in and felt like I was still doing it for other people,” she said. “That just hurts my heart that doing what I love has been kind of taken away from me to please other people.”

As to whether she will be back to compete in the all-around final on Thursday, Biles said in a press conference that she is taking it “day by day.” 

The reactions to Biles’s decision to step back point out the powerful double standards faced by women—and particularly women of color. 

Biles is also being praised for having the strength and leadership to prioritize her mental health in the face of such high expectations. 

ORIGINAL STORY—July 27, 2021, 8:01 a.m.: Simone Biles has pulled out of the gymnastics team final at the Olympics 2021 for a “medical issue,” the Today show reported on Tuesday, July 27.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Say They Only Bathe Their Kids If They ‘See Dirt on Them’

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher recently sat down with Dax Shepard on his Armchair Expert podcast to talk all things parenting—including how often they bathe their kids. 

“When I had [newborn] children, I also didn’t wash them every day,” Kunis said, according to BuzzFeed. “I wasn’t the parent that bathed my newborns—ever.” (She and Kutcher have two children together.) 

Kutcher added, “Now, here’s the thing: If you can see the dirt on them, clean them. Otherwise, there’s no point.”

Shepard agreed that using soap to get rid of the body’s natural oils every day was a bad idea, suggesting a just-water cleaning routine instead. Kunis added, “I didn’t have hot water growing up as a child, so I didn’t shower much anyway.” 

Dr. Kelly M. Cordoro, M.D., a professor of dermatology and pediatrics, recently spoke to the New York Times about this subject. “Over-bathing an infant may dry out the skin, making it itchy and rashy,” she said, per BuzzFeed. “It can be very irritating and unnecessary, as it can wash away the top layer of protective skin cells, natural oils, and normal healthy bacteria, leaving the skin dry, itchy and vulnerable to irritation and possibly skin infections.”

Mila Kunis opened up to The Telegraph in 2020 about her home and family life. “We do family outfits,” she said, according to People. “It makes everyone go crazy. Last year I dressed [daughter Wyatt Isabelle] as a pig. I went as a pig. And my husband went as a pig.”

She also called Kutcher “brilliant” and “an incredibly hands-on” parent, saying, “When my child was born, I was breastfeeding and he said, ‘That’s your connection, I want to change every diaper.’” 

And on her work-family life balance, she said (per People), “I don’t live to work, I work to live. I never took my career too seriously before. After becoming a mom, I definitely don’t.”

Watching Jennifer Lopez Call Ben Affleck’s Rainbow Phoenix Tattoo ‘Awful’ Is So Iconic

I think we all can agree that Ben Affleck is a classically good-looking dude with a classically bad-looking back tattoo. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a massive phoenix in shades of blue, red, and orange that covers his entire backside. 

And his current girlfriend, Jennifer Lopez, is not a fan. We know this from an interview that recently resurfaced from 2016. Now that the original Bennifer is back together, fans have been combing through old videos—and while the couple is famously complimentary of each other, Lopez didn’t mince words about Affleck’s ink.

“It’s awful!” she told Andy Cohen in an interview on Watch What Happens Live.  “I would tell him that! Like, what are you doing? It has too many colors. His tattoos always had too many colors. They shouldn’t be so colorful, you know what I mean? They should be cooler.” 

Who knows? Maybe Jennifer Lopez will convince Ben Affleck to get the tattoo removed. We know from another WHHL interview, this time from 2014, that Lopez helped style Affleck when they dated in the early-aughts. “I did kind of say, ‘You need to be—you’re a movie star. You should wear a suit, or you should do this with your hair. I did that—and by the way, guys do that to girls, too. Like, ‘I like that dress better than the other dress’…[Ben] was into it. He didn’t do anything he didn’t wanna do.” 

Regardless, Affleck’s poor choice in tats doesn’t seem to be slowing the couple down. They were recently spotted canoodling on a yacht, bringing to mind the iconic scene from the “Jenny From The Block” video. Lopez has also taken to wearing a necklace with the letters B-E-N on it. Maybe J.Lo doesn’t care about the tattoo anymore (or, ya know, she just ignores it).

The First Teaser for AHS Season 10 Is Here—And Yup, We’re Getting Sea Monsters and Aliens

Exciting returns include Bates, Paulson, and Peters, who were deeply missed in season nine. Notably missing are Emma Roberts and Jessica Lange, two major players in the franchise.

But it’s the addition of Culkin in the number-two slot that may prove to be the most interesting choice. While his brother, Kieran Culkin, is killing it on Succession, the Home Alone child star has slowly been making his way back into the public eye.

“I enjoy acting. I enjoy being on set,” Culkin said in an Esquire cover story. “I don’t enjoy a lot of the other things that come around it. What’s a good analogy? The Shawshank Redemption. The way he gets out of prison is to crawl through a tube of shit, you know? It feels like to get to that kind of freedom, I’d have to crawl through a tube of shit. And you know what? I’ve built a really nice prison for myself. It’s soft. It’s sweet. It smells nice. You know? It’s plush.”

Kaia Gerber is joining the cast. “Very excited to announce that Kaia Gerber is joining the American Horror Story family,” Murphy announced on Instagram in March. It’s unclear if she’ll be in the story “by the sea,” “by the sand,” or both. 

A spin-off is in the works! Murphy announced American Horror Stories on Instagram after a cast-reunion Zoom call. “American Horror Story cast Zoom call…where we reminisced about the good times…the spin-off we’re doing called American Horror Stories (one-hour contained episodes)…when we will start filming the next season of the mothership…and other stuff I cannot print,” the showrunner wrote in the caption on May 11. “It was so much fun and I’m glad we caught up. I miss everyone!”

The first poster is here. And it’s terrifying. One word: teeth. Murphy revealed the art in November 2020. 

We finally have a title! Get ready for American Horror Story: Double Feature

We don’t know what it will be about…yet. According to Murphy’s Instagram post, there will be “two horrifying stories…one season.” One story will be set “by the sea,” while the other is “by the sand.” 

So what could the ocean have to do with season 10? I’m going to go all in right now and say mermaids. But you know, the creepy siren kind that lures sailors to their deaths. I would watch the hell out of that.

But this new poster drops a hint. It was released June 24. So does this mean we can expect…aliens? Looks like it!

Wait, there’s more news. In a reply to one confused fan, Murphy clarified that we’re basically getting two seasons for the price of one. “It means TWO SEASONS for the fans airing in one calendar year! So double the viewing pleasure,” Murphy replied, per the Daily Mail. “One set by the sea (this cast already announced). A second by the sand (that cast announcement coming).”

Sarah Paulson was spotted on the set in April…with bright pink hair. See pics here.
