I have a schizophrenic relationship with fall. I'm a September baby so I get to celebrate, but it's also the season of Halloween, my least favorite holiday. (I'm just not good at coming up with the creative costumes!) I love the fall leaves and cooler temperatures but it also signals the coming of winter, my arch nemesis of seasons. But I also love fall for the fashions! This is usually a very EASY style season for modest dressers. And the fall fashions are here!
One of my favorite sales, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, starts today! It's a totally unique event not duplicated anywhere else in the industry - it is a sale on NEW items and I have scored some great pieces in the past. Click on the link above to check it out. Now would be a great time to score that new pair of non-Mom Jeans! And the sale covers men, kids, and accessories! Here are a few pics of some great items. The sale ends Aug. 2.
And remember! It is infinitely easier to shorten than to lengthen, which is nigh on impossible. That means, if you find a dress, shirt, skirt, etc. that would you would love for summer/spring if the sleeves were a little shorter, get it and run it over to a tailor! It's very likely they can easily transform a long sleeve to a 3/4 or shorter and still keep the item looking great. And hemlines are a cinch to shorten.
Also hitting with the fall fashions are the start of the summer sales. Still with plenty of time to wear the clothes this year, as well as many springs & summers to come.
So tell me - what is YOUR favorite season to shop? And where?
