A funny thing happened. Last week I told you about my contempt for the fashion industry forcing a new season upon me as I try to enjoy my pina colada poolside. I meant it. Until I walked into Nordstrom. A sucker for a sale, I popped in to one of my fave spots to see what scores I could snag. Their anniversary sale, called the N sale, is deemed a "fashion bash"- and it is. Everything from high-end to moderately priced just-in fall pieces on sale now before the season even starts (shoes, too!)! It started innocently enough, I thought maybe a new top to throw into the mix of my stale summer wardrobe, until a beyond beautiful leather shirt beckoned me from the corner. I tried to resist. "No, beautiful oxblood leather shirt," I said, "it's 97 degrees outside. Leave me alone!". But, I couldn't. I headed to the dressing room, with the sales girl trailing, "It's real leather!" she called after me, and it felt like butter. Ultimately, I left it on the rack knowing that the sale continues for a couple more weeks. I am still lusting after it, and several other studded stunners, that I imagine will probably end up in my closet. Don't worry, I didn't leave empty-handed, though. I picked up a Wildfox "Shopping is My Cardio" t-shirt that was the one item in the store not on sale, natch. The N sale is on until August 4th, then it's back to full price.
