Nordstrom vs. Amazon Looks for Less

Hi friends! Happy Friday!  I’m so ready for the weekend!  I feel like it’s been such a busy two weeks, but also really fun.  I’ve so enjoyed pouring over all the Nordstrom Sale goodies, getting together with Ali-Shaun and Tarah and then chatting with all of you via comments, email and DMs.  I’m so happy we get to connect here and when you let me know my posts are helpful to you, it really makes my day!

Today’s post was SO FUN for me and I hope you like it too!  It took a really long time, but I think it’s worth it! I compared popular Nordstrom items to those on Amazon and found so many similar things for less!  I could have kept creating these collages all day, so let me know if you want to see more like this!  I don’t like to recommend things to you that I haven’t actually tried, so I made sure to call out the things I have and love below.

I also just placed orders at Abercrombie, Target, and RedDress, so look for those posts soon!

AND, don’t forget the Colleen Rothschild GIVEAWAY!  To enter, just subscribe to my blog & follow Colleen Rothschild on Instagram.  Two winners will get to pick their 3 favorite products!

  1. Oh my gosh…I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this post!!!! While I do love getting things from Nordstrom, it’s not always in the budget. I know this was a lot of work & very time consuming, but I would love to see more posts like this. Thank you for your time & dedication 🙂

  2. Thank you so much for this! Nordstrom is across town from me and I don’t always want to take the time to drive there, AND end up spending more than I should. Amazon is so convenient and your input is very much appreciated!!

  3. WOW! Fantastic post! Agree with everything Julie C said. Would love to see different stores and brands compared this way on future posts!

  4. LOVE this post! Our financial situation just changed drastically and I am having to be really careful about spending, so completely skipped the Nordstrom sale this year… Love seeing these more affordable alternatives!

  5. Awesome post! I love this kind of look for less. I have a similar Amazon brand quilted vest and love it. I’ve also gifted that Amazon soft throw blanket and my sister loved that. You have great taste 🙂

  6. This is fantastic! I found your blog on Pinterest and have been updating my wardrobe with your help. You are amazing and so helpful. Please keep these comparisons coming! Thank you for all you do!

  7. I applaud you for this post! I’m usually a huge shopper during the Nordstrom sale spending easily over $1,000, but with pay cuts, due to COVID that’s not feasible this year. Sometimes I want to invest in quality and designer pieces and sometimes you don’t want to invest a lot in something that will be out of style after one season. Please post more posts like these.

  8. Love this post! Awesome to see very similar looks for less. I don’t generally shop at Nordstrom as the cost is a bit high for my tastes but I still love the style and pieces.

    Thank you for all the hard work on this!

  9. This was an awesome post, and I would love more like this!! Thank you so much for comparing and given different price points and your opinion. It is so helpful and useful!! I love your blog and insta stories and thank you for all you do!

  10. Yes, I love this post. While I love Nordstrom, I also like to get things there that you can’t find anywhere else. I tend to mix my outfits with 1 expensive piece and the rest more economical. So, I have my wishlist at Nordstrom and if there is a similar piece you have listed here. I took it off my list at Nordstrom. Thank you!!

  11. Thank you Megan for your hard work in doing this post. I really appreciate it and will aave to reference back to!

  12. Love this post, thanks for all the hard work. A person could save a lot of money for something they wanted, like maybe a puppy. ( James)

  13. What a great post! My wish list on Amazon is much closer to my budget. Thank you for all the hard work you put into this post. How do we make sure that you get credit when we shop at Amazon?

  14. I LOVE this post! Especially. that open knit sweater from Amazon in blush vs. the one from Nordstrom. Love that blush color!

  15. This is probably one of my favorite posts. So helpful and time efficient! Great picks to choose from. Thank you Megan for saving me time and money!

    1. I’m SO happy to hear this! While I was working on it, I thought it would resonate with y’all, but hearing it from you makes it even better!!

  16. Thank you for this comparison post! So much great stuff! As much as I love the nsale and Nordstrom, Amazon has some great treasures. Love the undies and the fall colors look great, can’t beat the price!
    Off to order the booties and bralette❣️?

  17. I think this is my all time favorite post ever!! Just love it! I believe you are a reader. If so, I would love to see some book review posts! Thank you Megan!

  18. Love all your posts, but this is up there as one of my favs!!! Would love to see more of these types. Thanks for the tips.
