20 Can’t-Miss Fashion Deals From Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2022 is nearing—and if you’re looking for the best Nordstrom designer sale finds, you’re in luck: The sale is brimming with cute dresses, designer pieces, tops, and sandals to fulfill your current dressing needs. 

It can be hard to keep track of all the fashion deals happening this summer—you’ve got Amazon Prime Day, Target Deals Days, and July 4th discounts to peruse—but holding out for the best deals makes a world of difference when you’re rethinking your entire wardrobe. To help you budget for the Nordstrom designer sale finds actually worth your coin, we combed through hundreds (nay, thousands) of trending deals—which in true Nordstrom fashion ranges on everything from high-end designer items to shoes, lingerie, and even athleisure. (We love options.)

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview is currently open for everyone to browse, but select Nordy Club members can get early access as soon as July 6 depending on their card status. The retailer’s annual sale opens to the public on July 15—and unlike most sales we shop on the reg, designer markdowns at Nordstrom tend to vanish while they’re in our carts. 

So what does this mean for you? Every waking minute/hour/day until then is time for you to curate your wish list with the pieces you actually want and need. The clock’s already ticking, so scroll down for all of our top picks from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale of 2022.

The Best Nordstrom Dresses Sales

Whether you’re on the hunt for a throw-on-and-go mini for the weekend, an effortless midi for the office, or an affordable wedding guest dress for your best friend’s nuptials, you’re guaranteed to find something in the mix—and at dangerously tempting price points, might we add. (Just saying, that $50 Open Edit dress is giving us major Reformation vibes—and would pair perfectly with a boyfriend blazer.) 

The Best Nordstrom Designer Sales

We may be in the throes of summer heat, but it’s hard not to daydream about the prospects of cooler temps when the Nordstrom designer sale has so many good fall essentials pieces worth investing in. Take your pick from quality denim to button-down and nautical knits from La Ligne and.  

The Best Nordstrom Lingerie Sales

A lingerie refresh is always welcome—and with so many undeniably comfortable bras and thongs up for grabs for way less, it would be foolish not to spruce up some part of your top drawer. Not sure where to start? Try the Natori Feathers Bra. It has a major celeb following and consistently tops Nordstrom’s best-sellers list in the intimates department. Pajamas and layering tanks are also marked down, in case you’ve washed your go-tos threadbare.

The Best Nordstrom Shoe Sales

No surprise here, but Nordstrom has some pretty steep discounts going on over in the shoe section. Snap up a new pair of running shoes or score a cute pair of heeled sandals to wear the rest of the summer season.  

The Best Nordstrom Athleisure & Basics Sales

With tons of top-rated workout gear about to be marked down, there’s really no need to buy any of these staples at full price. Besides, we’ll always have ample space in our hearts (and drawers) for more leggings and bike shorts.

How to Meaningfully Donate to Abortion Funds

Sharing our resources could mean the difference between a person getting an abortion or not. But let’s be honest—talking about money can be uncomfortable. Bringing up your own donation plans with family and friends about and asking about theirs can feel taboo. And right now, with painfully high inflation and gas prices, it’s not the easiest time to feel generous.

We asked people—well off and not, working and students, able to get pregnant and not—to explain their giving methods. Here are a few ways real people make room in their budgets for abortion funds. 

The monthly donation method:

Taylor, 25, went with the “set-it-and-forget-it” method that many abortion funds recommend: She picked an amount of money she felt comfortable with and set it as a recurring monthly payment to an abortion fund, like an app subscription but more meaningful. “I decided to make a monthly donation after the decision to overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked,” she says. She gives $25 monthly, an amount she says is a “small portion” of her monthly income.

Elizabeth, 54, did the same: she set up a monthly, automatic donation to NNAF. “My budget is very tight. I’m a full time ride-share driver, am clawing my way out of a financial hole from being a full-time caregiver for my late parents, and life is just hard right now,” she says. “I have my budget cut down to the absolute minimum, no luxuries. However, abortion access is a fundamental right and I’ll be damned if I let the Republicans drag us back to the 1850’s.” On the day that the Supreme Court struck down Roe, she decided to start driving extra hours so that she can up her donation. “I meet amazing young people every day in my job and I want them to have all rights possible,” she says. 

Billie, 32, chose NNAF and ARC-Southeast, which serves Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Tennessee. She landed on her donation amount about by taking her monthly Netflix subscription cost and doubling it. “I’ve come to realize we really need to do more than vote if we want to take power for ourselves and make change in the world,” she says. 

Megan, 38, set up a $10 monthly recurring donation to the NNAF, too. “I have found that a little monthly is easier for me to budget than larger one-time donations,” she says. While plenty of democrats will be fundraising off the Roe decision, Megan is wary. “I cannot in good faith put money toward election funds for legislators who are not acting,” she says. “Instead I chose to put my money where effective and safe networks for abortion access already exist.”

Emily, 36, started donating to an abortion fund when the draft Supreme Court decision leaked in May. “I grew up ‘pro-life’ in an Evangelical Christian family,” she says. “I attended anti-choice rallies as a child and volunteered for Republican candidates as a teen specifically with the hope to ‘end abortion.’” She changed. So did her budget. Now she donates to the Abortion Fund of Arizona. “My household income is stable, so the donation comes out of ‘fun’ money,” she says. “I didn’t need to cut anything out, which means I should probably increase my monthly donation. More people than ever will need it.”

The tithing method:

Nora, 33, is in a two-income household. She started giving to Indigenous Women Rising, New York Abortion Access Fund, and The Brigid Alliance because she was feeling “helpless,” like so many of us. “I was raised Catholic, and in Catholic school you’re taught to tithe: The idea is that 10% of your income goes back to the church. I’m not Catholic anymore, but that’s one of the few concepts I actually liked—not the idea of giving to the church so much, but of dedicating money to something bigger than yourself,” she tells Glamour. Nora aims to dedicate 10% of her monthly budget to donations, though not all the donations are to abortion funds. “I feel that I have a responsibility to give.”

How to Find an Abortion Clinic Near You

How to find an abortion clinic near you is going to be a question millions of women will be asking in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade. Just because abortion is no longer a constitutionally protected right does not mean that people have stopped or will stop needing abortions. In the wake of the decision, laws in nearly half of all states have been changing rapidly: some have outright bans that went into effect immediately, some have bans set to go into effect in a number of days or months, and some have bans that have been blocked or may resume.

If you need an abortion and are unsure where to turn, there are still resources available who will help you access the care you need. Abortionfinder.org updates their database of which states have clinics open and performing abortions and which have banned or restricted abortion access.

Rachel Fey, Vice President of Policy and Strategic Partnerships at Power to Decide notes that the state that is the closest geographically may not be the most convenient to the person seeking the abortion. You may have relatives in another state, or the closest state may not be able to provide you with the most appropriate care.

Another valuable resource for finding clinics is ineedana.com, which allows abortion-seekers to search by zip code.

“The site includes a comprehensive directory of abortion clinics, as well as information about abortion funds, practical support for getting to and from an appointment, and what restrictions you’ll have to deal with in your state,” says Jay Thibodeau of Abortion Care Network. “They don’t collect or save any user information, so it’s private, and the site is available in English and Spanish. You can also text 202-883-4620 for the three clinics closest to you (by ZIP)—it’s free and you don’t need internet access or a smartphone. The text line is especially important for people who don’t have access to a smartphone, the ability to search safely or privately on their own device or a shared computer, or reliable internet.”

Additionally, though much information tends to get lost in the confusion, most states still have not yet enacted full abortion bans. It may still be possible to access an abortion in a state that is likely to ban abortions in the future or with laws that are still in flux. For this reason, make sure to check with clinics directly to see if they are still taking appointments.

Here is a basic breakdown of where to go to find a clinic.

Deep South/Southeast

Full Ban: Alabama, Arkansas

Possible Future Ban: Louisiana, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, West Virginia

Nearest Sanctuary States: New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts

You can still access abortions in Georgia, Virginia, Illinois, Kansas, North Carolina

Resources: ARC-Southeast, New Orleans Abortion Fund, Yellowhammer Fund 

Midwest

Full Ban: Kentucky, Missouri, South Dakota

How To Become an Abortion Clinic Escort

“I didn’t know how to help,” says Elle. She’s talking about the time before—before she got trained, practiced, and learned how to become an abortion clinic escort. She lives in New Jersey, a state that has strong protections for abortion rights. At first, she wasn’t even sure if her help was needed. 

This spring Elle celebrated eight years of volunteering as a clinic escort. She does it about twice a month, on weekends. “In any state, there’s always something that you can do,” she says.

On Friday, June 24, the Supreme Court released the decision that overturned Roe v. Wade, which had for over 50 years asserted that abortion is a constitutional right. More than half of all states are now set to ban abortion. In the absence of Roe, people seeking abortion—at least those who have the means to do so—will pour into states with protected abortion rights. And in those states, clinic escorts like Elle will be waiting to welcome them.

What is a clinic escort?

A clinic escort is a person, often a volunteer, who assists patients at abortion clinics—welcoming them and helping them get in and out of clinics safely and efficiently. Abortion clinics are frequently targeted by protesters who harass and even attack healthcare professionals and patients seeking abortion.

The task is to accompany patients and “to be their lifeline, their support. I put my body on the line for theirs,” writes longtime clinic volunteer Lauren Rankin in her recent book Bodies on the Line: At the Front Lines of the Fight to Protect Abortion in America.

Most of us are not capable of providing abortions, fighting for reproductive rights in court, or voting for them in congress. There are vital ways for regular people to make fighting for abortion rights a lifestyle choice—setting monthly donations to abortion funds, volunteering for activist groups, canvassing voters and people in your own life, and more. Clinic escort work is a very direct option.

How do you sign up to be a clinic escort? 

Volunteering as a clinic escort is as simple as finding the abortion clinic closest to you that is taking volunteers and attending a training session. Search abortion clinics in your areas, click on the volunteer page, and see if they’re looking for clinic escorts. Keep this in mind: States where abortion clinics have been thrown into an emergency may not have need right now. An abortion clinic’s number one focus will be on serving patients, not cultivating volunteers.  

Other states that plan to act as “abortion havens,” may have an increased need for volunteers. “We are looking for volunteers but we have had a huge influx in the last week,” Elizabeth Barnes, President of The Women’s Centers, which has clinics in Georgia, New Jersey,Pennsylvania, and Connecticut—you can sign up to volunteer here. “We are figuring out the best way to give people opportunity in service to abortion care access, but we are recruiting.” 

Selena Gomez Says Her Only Murders Character Is a Grown Up Version of Her Most Iconic Role

If you’ve watched Only Murders in the Building and joked to yourself that Selena Gomez is basically playing a grown up version of the wonderfully snarky Alex Russo from Wizards of Waverly Place, you’re not alone…Gomez completely agrees.

“I feel like Mabel is an older version of Alex in a way,” Gomez said during a recent appearance on Entertainment Weekly‘s Awardist podcast, per People. While Mabel—who starts a true crime podcast with her much, much older neighbors played by Steve Martin and Martin Short—does not have magical powers, she sure does have a similar biting wit as teenaged Alex.

“I adored being on [Wizards of Waverly Place] so much,” she said of the Disney Channel series, which ran from 2007 to 2012. “I felt like I did learn a lot. We actually had great writers—we had two writers that were on Friends—and we had an incredible director that we used for most of our seasons.”

Gomez added, “We got really lucky. I still look back at that and laugh at certain things just because I thought it was so fun, and we tried.”

Meanwhile, when it comes to Mabel, Selena Gomez relishes the character’s snarky dialogue. “She’s rubbed off on me a little bit,” the actor said. “I love being quick, and I kind of steal Steve and Marty’s jokes every now and then. She’s fun.”

What else has been fun about season two of Only Murders in the Building? Working with close friend Cara Delevingne, who joined the Hulu series as a love interest for Mabel. “She is fantastic and I love our characters and our relationship,” Gomez said during an appearance on E!’s web series While You Were Streaming.” I got very proud as a friend to see her just do an incredible job.”

Audrina Patridge Says She Was ‘Peer Pressured’ Into Taking Topless Photos Early in Her Career

Audrina Patridge says she felt pressured to take topless photos early in her career that left her feeling “shameful” and unprotected.

Back in 2008, two years after The Hills first premiered, nude photos of the reality star surfaced online. “I took these photos years ago, when I was just out of high school and beginning to model,” Patridge said in a statement to TMZ at the time, per MTV News. “I was young and very trusting of others, and I didn’t know to protect myself. It is a lesson learned, for myself, and hopefully for the young girls who look up to me.”

In a recent episode of Bachelor Nation alum Nick Viall’s podcast, The Viall Files, she reflected further on the experience of shooting the photos as well as how the media and public responded to them. “I was kind of guided and peer-pressured in certain situations that I wish I could say, ‘No,’ and be strong with my ‘No’ and not fall into peer pressure with, you know, topless photos,” she said, per People.

If that experience weren’t traumatic enough, it was “devastating” to Patridge when the photos were then published online and judged by the general public. “People [spun] it into a judgmental, negative way, and then it makes you feel shameful and bad about yourself,” she said. 

Instagram content

This content can also be viewed on the site it originates from.

It was actually Patridge’s Hills costar Justin Bobby who helped the reality star cope with the controversy and breach of trust. “[He] was like, ‘Who cares? They’re boobs. Everybody has boobs. Stop freaking out about it,'” she said. “For me, I had to put things in perspective where it was like, ‘Alright, who cares?'”

Ultimately, Audrina Patridge hopes being vocal about her experience will help other young women who are going through similar ordeals. “Navigating your early 20s and teens is hard, and those choices you do sometimes have to live with,” she said. “You learn from them, but then you can teach other people from what you’ve been through.”


Looks Like Lilibet Diana Finally Met Her Grandpa

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may or may not still be mid-feud with his famously stuffy royal family, but the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not so salty that they’d keep their one-year-old daughter Lilibet Diana from meeting her grandfather Prince Charles while they were in town. The Sussexes flew into the London with their two children to celebrate Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee where, reportedly, Charles got to meet the youngest member of the family. 

An anonymous royal source told People, “It was a fantastic visit. The prince was delighted to see his grandson and meet his granddaughter for the first time.” This insider added, “It was very special to have some time with [Archie]. He hadn’t met Lilibet, his granddaughter, and so to meet her for the first time was very emotional—it was a wonderful thing.” You know how granddads get.

It’s perhaps worth a reminder at this point that during that interview (you know the one), Meghan and Harry said that certain members of the royal family had openly fretted about the skin-color of her future child. Later, a tell-all book indicated that it was Charles who had asked the skin-tone question (via Page Six), which the Palace Denied.

While the family was officially in town for the Jubilee, they also celebrated Lilibet’s first birthday while in the U.K. According to the Sun, Harry and Meghan threw their baby girl an “informal” backyard birthday party at Frogmore Cottage, where they had cake and snacks and party games. The Sun‘s source also revealed that Lilibet Diana got to meet her great-grandmother the Queen on this visit, as well as some of her royal second-cousins. 

William and Kate missed the festivities due to a prior Jubilee-related engagement, but we’re rooting for them to all get together eventually. A playdate with Prince Louis is bound to be a ball.


It This a Photo of Paris Hilton in 2004, or 2022?

Now that Hilton has re-emerged into the public consciousness, reborn and better than ever like an extremely wealthy phoenix from the ashes, it seems only right that her most famous fashion staple has evolved along with her. In 2022, Hilton is wearing her tracksuit a little looser than in the old days, letting her hoodie reach all the way below the waistline of her pants. And instead of the bright magenta or teal of the 2000s, this matching set features a two-toned light and dark purple-ish gray color-blocking. Looking very closely, you can see that the jeweled embellishments on the leg read “Boss Babe.”

JOCE/Bauer-Griffin

Hilton looks happy and radiant posing for the paps. After a few years of relative obscurity, The Simple Life star is now back on TV screens, happily engaged, toying with the press on her social media, and an advocate against child abuse. Everyone underestimated Paris Hilton once, but it’s not likely to happen again. I am legitimately so happy for her.
