The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale starts... NOW. Fall 2009 handbags, shoes, clothes, jewelry, you-name-it is on sale. The best deals are pretty much sold out immediately, so you'd best hurry. SHIPPING IS FREE, BTW.
TIP #1: Last year, all the purple items sold out almost immediately. So if you have purple handbags or shoes on your shopping list (and you should, since it's one of the Fall 2009 Hot Colors, unless you're already set) you'd best head for those first.
The first thing I'm buying, which will sell out pronto, is this:
I'm a bit of a Mars & Valentine fanatic. Gorgeous stuff! Plus, theirs is about the only costume jewelry which retains its value. Trust me, I've been trying to get a few pieces from two years ago on eBay and the prices are ccccRRRaaazyy.
*** UPDATED TO ADD: ***
Cole Haan Contrast Piped Zip Shoulder Bag
After Sale: $328.00
I was seriously trembling as my shopping cart processed, because last year something sold out WHILE I was checking out! Adrenaline! Now I have such a shopper's high sleeping will be difficult!
*** UPDATED TO ADD ***
Okay, well, I went back and I also bought the ring:
Mars and Valentine 'Pascale' Ring
After Sale: $220.00
Alright, I'm going to bed before I buy the rest of the store. Leave something for you Glam Gals as well :)
