Thank you to Nordstrom Rack for sponsoring this post.
I had the opportunity to attend the pre-opening of my local Nordstrom Rack, and it was beyond amazing! Shopping plus food and champagne – can it get any better? I think not. Seriously, Nordstrom Rack is heaven on earth…The first thing I noticed was that everything was in season and in style. When I think of an outlet or clearance center which is essentially what Nordstrom Rack I think items from last season or items that didn't sell well. However, that is not the case with Nordstrom Rack. EVERYTHING – and I mean everything – is so very fashion forward and current. Some of my favorite things I saw in the store were: the military and camo trend, Prada sunnies, the most darling Burberry rain boots, everything Kate Spade, Tory Burch, Betsey Johnson and, oh, that Mr. Michael Kors. I was swooning over it all.
Of course fall items were already out. I personally hate the cold but fall fashion makes it a little better. In fact, I almost think it makes the cold okay. I must say they had lots of fabulous pieces. So course they have amazing clothing, accessories, shoes and bags…but I was pleasantly surprised by the beauty products. They had all the brands you would find at Sephora – my favorite finds were Urban Decay and Lorac. I honestly could not believe my eyes!
Now, I must share my favorite moment of the night. I have been eyeing the Prada cat eye sunnies in lace for MONTHS and I mean months, ever since I saw them on a few fab bloggers I follow. But at $245 I would have to pass. Every other week I would come back to Nordstrom.com and see if they were on sale and of course they never were. When I received a $100 gift card from Nordstrom I knew exactly what I was going to buy! Due to some events I couldn't purchase the glasses like planned so I decided to save my gift card until the Nordstrom Rack opening party. Boy am I glad I did! As I walked to sunglasses, I saw them…the only pair of their kind…and the angels were singing and tears almost came out of my eyes. Not even kidding guys, really. I went to check the price: $89.00. At that moment there was no doubt my God loves me!
If you like quality items and love name brands but don't want to pay for the name brand price you'll absolutely love Nordstrom Rack.
