Fashion lovers on a budget, listen up: You can get seriously high-end labels at Nordstrom’s big anniversary sale that officially opens to the public today.

These aren’t outlet pieces, last-season leftovers, or weird stuff nobody wanted to pay full price for. Instead, we’re calling attention to Nordstrom-exclusive designer brand clothes and accessories that you can’t get anywhere else, and at prices way below what shoppers normally see. The sale is on now through August 6.

AllSaints Ray Nubuck Crossbody Bag: $185.90

The whipstitched trim gives this casual purse from an edgy British brand some retro 70s flair. The normal price is $278, so shoppers save nearly $100 during the sale. (Pair it with these floral-embroidered distressed jeans — also on sale — for a chill weekend look.) Buy here.

Burberry Pensham Quilted Jacket: $499.90

Burberry for under $500? (OK, so it’s just under $500 — but still!) Roll up the sleeves to show off the signature checkered pattern in the lining of this lightweight fall jacket, which has a normal list price of $795. Buy here.

Elizabeth and James Heath Ruffle Hem Top: $229.90

From Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s on-trend brand, this top nails the hat trick of what’s cool right now, with ruffles, a high-low hem and wide bell sleeves. Nordstrom says it will list for $345 after the sale’s over. Buy here.

Hudson Jeans Elysian – Nico Super Skinny Jeans: $129.90

Skinny jeans aren’t going away anytime soon, and this pair (normally $205) is super-approachable with distressed ripped knees and black stretch denim. Buy here.

Longchamp Le Pliage Cuir Leather Tote: $354.90

Hitting the perfect note of understated French chic, this oversized bag in soft leather (list price: $530) will class up whatever you throw into it, while interior and exterior pockets will keep you organized. Buy here.

Marc Jacobs Ruffle Cotton Poplin Blouse: $249.90

What else would you expect from Marc Jacobs but cheery florals in a sweetly feminine cut? This blouse (listed at $375) hits just the right style note for anything from a barbecue to a baby shower. Buy here.

Opening Ceremony Reversible Silk Bomber Jacket: $349.90

Yes, it’s a little ridiculous. But we’re nominating this reversible satin varsity bomber in millennial pink (or green, when you flip it inside-out) as the article of clothing most likely to elicit envy when you wear it to brunch. Nordstrom will list it at $525 after the sale. Buy here.

Proenza Schouler Print Silk Georgette Midi Dress $829.90

Courtesy of Nordstrom

If you’re not the type of gal to wear florals, the poppy leopard print on this bold blue dress (list price: $1,250) is a fresh alternative, while a back sash and handkerchief hem keep it playful. (Also, it’s pronounced pro-en-za skoo-ler. You’re welcome.) Buy here.

Rag & Bone Calder Stripe Reversible Top: $249.90

Courtesy of Nordstrom

Meet your new favorite work shirt. No matter how crazy your morning is, it’s literally impossible to put this crisp Oxford-with-a-twist shirt on backwards. It will list at $375 after the sale. Buy here.

Tory Burch Frida Stitched Suede Hobo Bag: $349.90

Courtesy of Nordstrom

This slouchy handbag in deep red (list price: $528) is perfect for when you want to channel a rich-hippie-on-vacation vibe, while the teeny gold logo is just subtle enough. Buy here.
