We know how precious your time is around the holidays, so if we're interrupting you, please know it's for good reason. Case in point: the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale—aka the biggest fashion event of the year—is here. So go ahead and put some time aside to shop the sale between now and Jan. 2 at 1 p.m. EST because we're happy to report that there are *tons* of PureWow reader favorite items at deep discounts. Not limited to the Natori Cherry Blossom convertible bra from $76 to $45 and the Nuna Rava convertible car seat, marked down from $550 to $400, plus lots of picks from go-to brands like Nike and Zella. Let's just say the line up won't disappoint if you're in the mood to shop until you drop.

Why else is the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale our absolute favorite event of the year? It's all about the boatload of hidden gems we get to save on, including these sleek Adidas Primegreen Stan Smith sneakers (were $100; now $77). So, you can bet there's some sifting involved, but thankfully, you won't have to worry about any of that because we did the heavy lifting for you. Specifically, we combed through thousands of items to bring you 12 cherry-picked, editor-approved styles that you'll want to add to cart ASAP. Because even though this sale continues through Jan. 2, 2023, these best-sellers won't stay in stock for much longer, so ready, set, shop!

PureWow readers are no strangers to Natori bras, and this one will definitely add a touch of romance to your lingerie drawer. But it's not just the pretty lace accents and sultry plunge cups that will have you running back for more colors. Buyers rave about this bra's ability to fit seamlessly underneath clothes (shoutout to its sleek blend of nylon and elastane) and, more importantly, how comfortable it is without digging in (due to its J-hook that gives it a racerback), making it even more supportive. Needless to say, this isn't just a pretty bra you'll wear on occasion; prepare to put it on on repeat.

All you need to know is that this Nuna Rava convertible car seat is a top-selling model for toddlers and is an uncomplicated masterpiece, according to moms who rave about everything from how long-lasting it is to how easy it is to install. Specifically, the small details make it one of the best options on the market. Its adjustable design suits kids from 5 to 65 pounds, so you don't need to buy a new model every other year (um, score!). And it features flip-up cupholders, ventilation to keep kids from getting sweaty on long rides and is made with a machine-washable knit fabric that's made without fire-retardant chemicals, providing added peace of mind. Need we say more?

No wardrobe is complete without at least one (or five) pairs of Zella leggings, and this luxe ribbed version is a must-have. The wide waistband reportedly hugs you in all the right places, and the stretchy rib material consisting of nylon, spandex and polyester fabric should hold up nicely in the washer so you can wear the leggings year-round.

Rain and snow aren't a total nightmare when you own boots like these. Their sturdy lug soles should help keep you steady on wet or snowy terrain, while their water-resistant leather upper and 5-inch shaft make it harder for any slush to get inside. On top of that, they come with hidden elastic goring for extra comfort and a zipper closure for easy on-and-off. Most importantly, though, shoppers confirm that they're comfy and wearable right out of the box—no painful break-in period required.

These cult-favorite FRAME jeans are incredibly comfortable and will give your booty a subtle boost. And the kicked-out hems are perfect for showing off your kicks winter, spring and summer. Because, yes, you'll want to wear 'em year-round. But here's why one buyer is obsessed: "These are probably the first high-rise jeans that fit me comfortably. I don’t feel like I’m choking. They’re really soft. They do stretch out, but not so much that they fall off. They’re pricey, but they’re built to last."

  • Size Range: 24 to 32

It's officially winter, and if you're wishing for a new cozy coat, look no further than this pillowy beauty from Lauren Ralph Lauren. Besides its longline silhouette that'll keep you fully covered in cold weather, we especially love its stylish design, featuring a gorgeous stand collar for added insulation and a head-turning fixed hoodie. In other words, it checks all the boxes, and then some, and buyers couldn't agree more. “It falls at a good length, [plus] it is colorful and comfortable," one shares. "I like that it has an interior zipper in addition to the long exterior zipper to provide more warmth.” Consider sizing down if you are between sizes, as the site’s description suggests.

Guys, more than 70 million pairs of Stan Smith sneakers have been sold worldwide, according to Vogue. And it's all because buyers are obsessed with their super comfortable fit (with a neat, removable, cushioned insole) and the fact that they clean easily (in seconds, people!). So, if you've been meaning to buy some, now is the time when they're as low as $77.

  • Size Range: 5 to 11

Here's the thing about this sweater: It's super giftable, especially since it'll fit seamlessly into anyone's winter capsule wardrobe. We can talk about how it has the sweetest flare-cuff detailing and stylish side slits on its long sleeves, but what really makes it worth the buy for yourself or someone else? The pearly button embellishments at the sleeve, of course. Darling-yet-sophisticated, this is a pick everyone needs in their closet.

  • Size Range: XS to XL

Let's be real, we wear our Birkenstocks all year round (inside our homes, on vacations, etc.), so we never waste an opportunity to score a fresh pair on sale—especially for under $100. This style features the brand's signature molded cork footbed that contours to your feet, so you can feel like Cinderella with the perfect fit. The super smooth leather upper and oversize silver buckle might just be the main attractions, though, as they're sure to add a bit of elegance to even your most dressed-down fits.

  • Size Range: 5-5.5 to 10-10.5

For the minimalists among us, this pebbled leather tote is great for both travel and everyday use. It can fit a 13-inch laptop and has two interior slit pockets for easy-to-grab items like your phone or passport. The top seals shut with a zipper so nothing will come tumbling out if you place it in under-seat storage or on the passenger seat as you drive. All in all, this is a timeless tote that you’re sure to love for many years, and now that it's on sale for $235, it just doesn't get any better.

This magical little bralette reportedly offers good support for all chest sizes, per reviewers. But we aren't too surprised since it's made without an underwire, elastic band and seams, which also makes it practically invisible under clothing. The pretty, lacey racerback? Just a cherry on top, so you feel just a bit more glamorous each day. One buyer raves, "Very light material, so you can wear it in 100-degree Las Vegas heat and be comfortable. It goes with almost every piece in my closet. Definitely getting a second one. Highly recommend."

It would be a crime not to snag some Uggs during the Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale, especially this beloved style that is on everyone's Christmas list this year. Yep, they're a must-have and, unsurprisingly, long-lasting thanks to their water- and stain-resistant suede upper and rubber sole. And, of course, they feature the brand's iconic genuine shearling fur lining that is addictively soft and cozy. (Seriously, no need to wear socks.)
