Can I be honest? I’m a little leary of “SALES”. Here’s why: Clearly I love to shop, and a SALE is like overload for me because I love a good bargain, too. What sometimes happens is that I convince myself to buy something that really doesn’t fit or that I don’t even need or like just because it’s on SALE. But, with that being said, I feel like the Nordstrom Anniversary SALE is a “smart sale” for me to shop. It’s pre-season clothes that have just come into the store at post-season sale prices (30-40% off). But not to worry, I also have a strategy for this SALE. I’ve decided to only look at “Fall Staples”. This way I know it’s something I’ll wear all season long and I won’t have any buyers remorse! Instead, I’ll feel really smart and well prepared every time I pull out that black leather jacket I bought on sale that is now hanging on the rack at full price. Now, with my strategy in hand, I think Nordstrom is going to feel like they’ve been taken -bahahahaha! I only wish.
