    NAS: Shoes, Boots, Handbags Oh My!

    I hope you enjoyed my Top 20. Now it’s time to focus on my favorites in these other categories.

    When it comes to the (NAS) Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I would encourage you to put your dollars towards shoes, boots or handbags if you have to make a choice. There will be plenty of clothes on sale through the season. This is the only time of the year you will receive these reduced prices on such quality items. Yes, you can hit it right with clearance items–we’ve all done that, but selection on sizes are limited.

    If you do not see your size on the site, do NOT panic. Call a local store with the six digit number and ask a salesperson to search all the stores in the system. You can do the sale right over the phone and it will be sent to you FREE shipping. You will likely catch a sales person at the counter who may be in the middle of a transaction. Be patient or leave your name if possible. Things are busy this time of year. Also, things are returned every day, so check back on your favorite item if it is sold out now.

    Franco Sarto                               Halogen                                                    Michael Kors                    

    All of these have received rave reviews from customers trying based on comfort and style. The AGL is a regularly priced at $330 and they only go on sale one time a year and are down to $199. These are one of the most comfortable shoes out there and you will see many Nordstrom sales associates wearing them. That should tell you something.

    The Lauren wallet by Hobo is always a hit and comes in a number of designs.

    This concludes my posts on the  NAS. I hope you enjoyed seeing some of the selections especially if you do not have a store close to you. Let me know what you found. I’d love to hear.

    The Ups and Downs of Technology

    I’ve been blogging for almost 3 years. In the last 3 months I’ve appeared to have more technical difficulties than the last three years. I’ll spare you the details, but suffice to say it is becoming more/more difficult to blog with the tools. Blogging is great when everything works the…
