"That's right - opening day, right at noon. I'll be there!" I shared excitedly to my gal pal on the phone, fully knowing that as a non-card holder, the situation would already be dire.
Luckily a few bloggers and friends had gone before me, reporting a less thrilling Nordy's Anni Sale than years past, which was both a beautiful and sad thing. Nice in that some dough can be saved and bummer in that the thrill of that fall fashion find was probably not going to be a reality this year. My husband and stack of mounting healthcare bills probably lean toward a mini celebration.
With a pen and paper in one hand and laptop balanced on a soft pillow, I studied Nordstrom.com with the kind of ferocity one does months before the Bar exam. Skipping the clothes almost altogether (hello, carrying around an extra 55 pounds and accessories always fit), I created my wish list between post-its and Pinterest. And when that Friday came around, I went in for the kill. With one hour to invest, it went purses, jewels, shoes, kids and home goods. Here's what I left with:
|A pretty little something to add a touch of sparkle for day or night|
|Vince Camuto cross body that's just the right size and a unique,|
gray brown to pair with any fall/winter ensemble
|Ugg sneaks in a perfect neutral for fall that scream comfort and style|
|Teeny CZ studs that sparkle and are sized as if they were real|
|Copper mug, for those evenings that call for a Moscow Mule|
|A cozy throw for the days I spend typing away in the home office|
In these boxes were also a few Under Armor pieces for the boys. The scented candle, Zella leggings, plum jacket and a few other favs were left behind thanks to budgeting reasons.
So overall, not too shabby. Because come Anni sale or any time in between, Nordy's is top notch.
What did you bring home in your lovely, yellow-box themed sacks?
