Nordstrom has started their famous semi-annual sale where merchandise is reduced up to 40%. Although there isn't a Nordstrom on the city (yet) they are the first department store to officially start markdown season.
A French Connection fit and flare dress is $82 from $138, an adorable 3.1 Philip Lim patterned skirt is $237 from almost $400, Alaia-like Vince Camuto booties with cut-outs are $93 from $138 and Alexander Wang bloomer shorts are $255 from $425.
We suggest that you click back often because this Nordstrom sale tends to slowly gain momentum. Right now, there may not be a large amount of designer merchandise but more will surely be added. Nordstrom's sales online usually top out at about 70% off.
