This year, I decided to approach the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Icon Access differently. In year’s past, Bob and I would travel to Boston from Nantucket via ferry, drive to the nearest Nordstrom in Boston (last year in heavy downpour rain nonetheless), and I would purchase new items and do fitting room try-ons of some of my favorite pieces. It was fun!
However, I’ve started to crave doing things differently. Listen, Nordstrom is one of my favorite retailers, and this shopping event has authentically always been one of my faves of the entire year. But over time, the experience has started to be draining (both for consumers and those who cover it).
So I chose to flip things on their head. Many months ago, I started diligently working with top brands to get previews of their Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2023 offerings. This was no small feat, lol. Thankfully, I’m grateful to have been blogging since 2008 and have worked hard to develop trust with many companies.
I’m grateful so many get the big picture and are open to candid feedback about products. So it worked.
Slowly but surely, we started getting previews of the NSale 2023 products. Some were slam dunks. Others weren’t for me.
New to Veronica Beard? In 2010, sisters-in-law Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson launched Veronica Beard in order to bring the perfect balance of classic and cool. They achieve it. Truly!
Their first piece, the signature Dickey Jacket, is still the iconic staple of the line. Since then, they’ve expanded the collection to include dresses, tops, pants, skirts, and beyond. In fact, Veronica Beard is truly one of my favorite companies and brands of all time, and I’m thrilled they’re participating in the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Icon Access.

Tomorrow, I’ll also be sharing an in-depth preview of a few phenomenal styles to shop as a part of the sale. Be sure to follow along on Instagram Stories for a curated mix of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Icon Access 2023 content, including previews of styles that I’m loving from the sale this year.
The main reason why I’m featuring Veronica Beard this year is because the majority of their styles, especially their blazers, sell out during the Icon Sale (plus, I love love love their line).
Today, I wanted to give you my honest take on what I’m loving, and what I think is worth the investment.
Veronica Beard Nordstrom Anniversary Sale
The brand has an incredible array of styles as a part of the sale. It’s hard to know where to start! From their gorgeous tweed blazer and dress to their floral striped midi dress, blue striped top and darling denim, pants, and beyond.
Friends, the items are phenomenal. While I’ll be passing on the Crosbie Exposed Button Crop Wide Leg Corduroy Pants and Arlo Wedge Boot, they have plenty of other pieces you will adore.
Veronica Beard Jackets
In my opinion, every woman should invest in at least one Veronica Beard blazer. Truly! Especially if you have a 9-to-5 where you frequently need to dress up. Plus, they’re perfect for business meetings and really any occasion. Furthermore, a cornerstone of their collection are dickeys, which create an amazing layered look without added bulk.
If you’re on the hunt for the perfect blazers that’ll take you from summer to winter, I highly recommend the following styles from Veronica Beard. They’ve become a huge go-to style for me for work to weekend (and especially on trips).
The Veronica Beard Diego Metallic Check Cotton Blend Tweed Dickey Jacket is not to be missed – originally $698 (on sale for $467.99). I also love this Cutaway Dickey Jacket (originally $598 and on sale for under $400).
For a more luxe option, I love the Beacon Faux Leather Dickey Jacket, which is very chic and comes with a dickey inside. The sale price $639.99 (originally $958.00), and worth every penny. It’s an investment, but truly worth every penny.
Veronica Beard Pants & Denim
This year, Veronica Beard is offering several pant styles, including these Hildie Topstitch Ankle Jeans (originally $348, on sale for $179.99), and these Taylor Raw Hem High Waist Wide Leg Jeans (only $187). SO good!
To note, the flared pant is long with a 32″ inseam. I broke out my highest platform shoes to make them work. Easier yet, take advantage of Nordstrom’s free tailoring and alterations! Pro tip: be sure to bring your most “typical” heels or shoes in terms of getting the height perfect.
This year, Veronica Beard also has several amazing sweaters and tops. One of my faves is the Adaire Argyle Sweater ($245), which is the ideal layering piece for the fall season. At first, I wasn’t sure if I’d like the style on me as the color isn’t something I typically wear. I was wrong! It’s truly fabulous!
Granted, my favorite piece for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Icon Access is the Veronica Beard Unity Stripe Stretch Cotton Blend Button-Up Shirt. Friends, it’s just SO good. One of the most versatile pieces in the entire sale. Dress it up with a midi skirt or dress it down with denim and sneakers. At $219.99, this top is a steal from the brand.
Veronica Beard Dresses
Last year, Veronica Beard had a fantastic dress for the sale, so I’m not surprised they created another one! This time, it’s one with a ruffle hem and beautiful floral print with a slight boho vibe. Typically, I tend to wear colorful and bold dresses, but I was very impressed with the Sazan Long Sleeve Handkerchief Hem Paisley Dress.
Another style to keep track of? This Julie Sleeveless Tweed Dress (on sale for $333.99, originally $498). Ultimately, the crested buttons elevate the style. Bob specifically told me how much he loved this style on me paired with the matching blazer. So chic!

Getting first access to Anniversary Sale items is a huge perk. Things go out of stock QUICKLY during Early Access. Nordstrom restocks items periodically throughout the sale. Regardless, there were so many pieces I regretted not buying before they sold out. Even if you don’t buy anything, it’s nice to have the option to see merchandise before the general public.
What items are on your list this year for the 2023 Nordstrom Anniversary Sale? I can’t wait to see what you buy!
