I know I don’t usually do a mid day post but since the sale starts today and things tend to sell out quickly (although many restock) I got up early this morning and pulled some of my favourite pieces. Now today the sale begins for card holders. I am not a card holder therefore I can only browse. The cards have different levels, with each one leading to different bonuses. The level 4 card holder got access yesterday but you need to spend over $10,000 a year for that to be applicable which would never happen in a million years here. I don’t think I even spend $1000 on clothes a year for the entire family so I guess I’d be a level 1 ;) But that is neither here nor there because many people have a card and this allows them to start shopping today.
Nordstrom only opened here within the last year so I have only physically been in a store within the last 18 months. I actually really like shopping in department stores and I really like that they carry from brands that don’t have stores yet in Canada (like Madewell).
I only made it partly through the women’s selections and a small fraction in to the home but I figure this is a good start. There are so many great jackets and sweaters this year, and while I didn’t include anything from the kids department (I only quickly browsed through but they have some great winter coats) there are tons of clothes that are perfect for back to school.
The sale opens to the general public on the 20th and goes until my birthday on August 6th. I think I’ll go check it out in person when it opens to the non card holders and see if I can find some good deals because I hate having to pay shipping charges and duties if it can be avoided. I went last year when it was still Early Access and all the sale items were roped off so you couldn’t look at anything unless you were a card holder. It kind of sucked and was super annoying so if you don’t have a card stick to online because you will at least be able to see the items better. I hope they still have some Madewell jeans in stock by then though because I am dying to try some on. Here are some of my selections.
Have a good one guys. Continue Reading
