shoppers, start your engines...

This weekend kicks off my third favorite summer holiday (after SeaFair & the 4th): the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. If you weren't fortunate enough to make a pre-select appointment, you might be among the hundreds of early risers ready to beat down the doors on Friday morning.

As a two-time sales floor veteran of said madness, I both love and fear the first weekend of Anniversary. The crowds, the chaos, the folding...its great for the wallet, and hard on the feet.

This year, my darlings, I will neither work nor shop on this most auspicious holiday. I will be out of town, and therefor, am passing the torch to you.

Click here to browse the catalog online, which doesn't even include all the merchandise.

If it were me (and who knows, it very well might, depending on internet access), here's what I would be elbowing soccer moms and spoiled teenagers in the ribs for come Friday:

  • Vera Wang Lavender Label or Frye 'Maxine' motorcycle boots
  • BCBGeneration peep-toe booties and platform pumps (in animal print!)
  • True Religion 'Julie' skinny jeans
  • Alice + Olivia side-snap leggings
  • Badgley Mischka crossbody/hobo bag
  • Marc by Marc Jacobs 'Jorie' Michael Kors "Jet Set Sport' gold watch
  • Hinge boyfriend Blazer
  • and finally, as many pairs of Honeydew's and Hanky Panky's as funds allow...


Good luck out there! I'll be rooting for Las Vegas :)
