Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Dos and Don'ts

Jul 19, 2013

It's that time again!  Nordstrom is having their Anniversary Sale.  Here are some tips for your handbag shopping spree:


Have a budget
The sales are fantastic, it's true.  But even though the fabulous Marc by Marc Jacobs Leather Flap Hobo is more than 30% off, I still can't afford it (if you can you should go for it, at $292 this bag is a steal).  Bring only cash to keep yourself on track.

Know what you want
It's easy to get distracted.  But if you go in for a clutch, try not to end up in the jewelry section.  That's a quick way to blow your budget.

Bring a friend
Sometimes you find a really, really amazing sale on a questionable item.  For those moments, bring a friend whose style you trust.  They might help remind you that, while the Cole Haan Crosby Colorblock Shopper in Winery/Orchid is lovely, how often would you really use a bag in multiple shades of pink?


Be persuaded by the sale price
My sister, the most fashionable person I know, once told me "When I'm tempted, I try to imagine if I'd like it without the label."  Use similar discretion at the Anniversary Sale.  Sure, the Poverty Flats Faux Leather Crossbody Bag is a heck of a deal, but would I buy it if the sale tag wasn't so flashy?  Probably not.

Above all:
If you find something you love, go for it.  You probably aren't going to get a better deal.
