Thank you to Nordstrom Rack for sponsoring this post.
I have been pumped for a while now after finding out that we were getting a Nordstrom Rack a mere 10 minutes from my house, so imagine my pure joy to get an invite to the private grand opening pre-party where I would be able to check out the entire selection first and enjoy apps and cocktails while doing so! Yeah, I'm not sure I have ever RSVP'd faster to anything.
So the deal with Nordstrom Rack, in case you haven't heard, is that they carry on- trend, of-the-moment clearance items that come from Nordstrom stores and Nordtrom.com, but they also buy specifically for the Rack! Most items are 30-70% off of retail prices, but I am telling you guys – I found a ton of items for over 80% off! No lie!
The store is laid out beautifully and you can easily see where everything is, so if you had to run in in a hurry you'd be able to grab exactly what you needed in no time! They have sections for career, men’s, kids, casual, juniors, accessories, makeup…everything is divided up easily and I knew right away where to head to find what I needed!
And GET OUT with the best handbag selection! Hey Tori, you want to just jump off of that hook and onto my arm, don't you, ya little minx! 😉
I have never had so much fun shopping in my life! There were lovely people walking around with trays of delicious food, and tiny bottles of champagne with straws! They really rolled out the red carpet and showed us such a good time! I was filling my bag quickly and had to keep things on so I could decide if they were for me or not. I really wanted a few key items to update my wardrobe for fall.
Kate Spade bags begging to go home with me.
One thing that I knew I wanted to try was a pair of loose fitting boyfriend jeans. I have been so tired of always wearing skinnies, and my butt has been waiting to embrace a looser fit with open arms. (PS- How happy am I to find out that actual pajama looks have been hitting the runways this fall?! I kid you not. Matchy sets for day wear even! I am thinking I might be totally in with this look! Or at least maybe some parachute pants? I don't know, the jury is still out.)
This lovely girl is currently ringing up my purchases! Yep, they have a mobile check out! Super easy, you don't have to wait in line. Just find an associate who has a mobile checkout device and they can take care of you!
I cannot get over the prices here for items that are on-trend now. I found items that were 97% off of retail! Absolutely insane and so lucky for fashion lovers on a budget. We do not have to forgo designer brands, you guys! Like, $11 for a shirt. I .am. telling. you!
I fell so head over heels for Nordstrom Rack and I am so glad this one is mine.
