It happens but once a year and has been a tradition with me for a very long time. Towards the end of June I start chomping waiting for the mailman to bring me THE NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALES CATALOG!!!!!!!! And today my friends, today was the day I received the catalog along with my access code. So I dutifully went through the hardcopy and then went to work on the online catalog, oh and in store is a whole other animal, you see the buyers pick items that may not be in any of the catalogs. Oh and I love a good presale, they’ve curtained off the area and you just pick your items before and your personal shopper will have them ready for you on the day of the sale or a few days ahead of time. My favorite thing to do is to go to South Coast Plaza first thing in the morning and get my items (they open at 8 for sale day). Oh this is all giving me a good case of the HAPPIES. Yes, yes, I know I’m supposed to stop my evil ways and not spend, and in all likelihood this year will be a light year, but I like to go through the motions nonetheless.
First for me are the handbags/pocketbooks/purses and other assorted goods (normally I allow myself at least one, but the one my heart truly desires is a bit out of reach for now).
Next I always turn my head towards shoes.
Now we leave the land of shoeporn, that was a quickie wasn’t it? On to Make-up….oh how I love make up.
And lastly to clothes. To be honest I have so much in way of clothes, that I wasn’t feeling to buy anything. I am really glad that the seventies are back this Fall, I can use a change of pace. Maybe I need to go through my wardrobe and do a bit of a cleaning. Hmm….
Oh I love Sunglasses (I refuse to cutely refer to them as sunnies).
This may sound like an odd thing, but this sale means fall is just around the corner. This is the time when I think of wearing a leather skirt. Not the hooker walk the street leather skirt, but the below the knee leather skirt which requires the above the knee boot. You know the quintessential fall look.
Hmm…there are so many things listed and I’m not really sure what I want to do, or if I really want any of those things. I only know that I probably don’t need them. So I may just be torturing myself here. I should probably consider the fact that I have other things I want to do, and this may be more of a distraction. But then again, it may be time to overhaul my closet….sigh, the last sigh of this post….
