Unbelievable Dress Deals!

My posts have been far and few between lately – autumn is an extremely busy season! Anyway, even though I haven’t had much time to shop, my eye caught some amazing dress deals at Nordstrom Rack a few days ago.  I inspected the dresses and could not find anything wrong with them – just shocking price tags.

I literally could not believe some of these markdowns –

The very best deal in my opinion?
A $898 Cobalt lace ML for $68.  That’s about 92% off!

Normally in stores we see Michael, by Michael Kors.  It’s not often we see the real Michael Kors Collection, with dresses running up to $20,000 a piece.  This dress in particular was $1,575 and marked down three times to $119.90.
That’s a 92% savings!

It was $495 and dropped to $76.48!

There was also a super cute Burberry dress, retailing for $1,295
and marked down to $409.97 – a 68% savings!


I’m sure if I kept browsing through the racks, I would have found more amazing deals, but the store was about to close!
If these dresses are still around during a “Clear the Rack” sale, you’ll get an additional 25% off on top of the already-incredible deals –
but I’m sure they’ll sell fast!

‘Till next time, always aim for the best, and realize you can afford it!

Labor day is upon us:  The end of summer, and the start of pumpkin-everything.  Kids are back in school, and soon enough we’ll be throwing on our sweatshirts and jackets. I can’t say I’m looking forward to the cooler weather – but I am looking forward to weekend sales!

Here’s a list of places to find the best deals this weekend on designer goods:

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale & Double Points!

Ladies & Gents, the Nordstrom Anniversary sale is here!  All of the newest autumn trends have just arrived, and most of them are marked down 20-50+%.  As soon as August 2nd rolls around, the items will shoot back up to full price so there’s no time to waste.  Not thinking about the leaves turning colors, and the chilly nights rolling in? Well, those days are not too far ahead of us.  This is the perfect time to stockpile Christmas presents (it is NEVER too early) and complete your back-to-school shopping for the hottest brands: The North Face, Ugg, Tory Burch, even Burberry.

Taking advantage of the sale?  Act fast because today is the last day to receive double points on every Anniversary Sale purchase with your Nordstrom Card – in stores & online.  You’ll earn reward certificates even faster.

Since I have a Nordstrom Credit, I was able to take advantage of the card perks and shop “Pre-Sale” last week.  I picked up a new North Face Denali Jacket at 25% off!  I normally wouldn’t flinch for a measly 25% off, but for a classic black Jacket that returns year after year at full price and never goes on sale, it was a deal worth taking advantage of.  Passing through the normal sale racks, I found a cotton Tory Burch cardigan in one of my favorite colors for 60% off!  The saleswoman told me it was an online return of a sold-out item, so I snatched it fast.

So get out of the over-bearing heat, think of the cooler days ahead, and go to Nordstrom – it’ll certainly be air-conditioned.

‘Till next time, stay stylish 😉
