Weekend Shopping: Impulses & Obsessions

I've always had the idea that if you aren't looking into the future you're falling behind. With a close eye on fashion, it's a reality that's hard to deny. This little Blogspot might feel like 90s dialup but I've always loved the idea of stepping forward and trying new things.

Most recently, we started a Telegram MadSpy Alerts group and a Telegram MadSpy chat. Both have taken on a life of their own and a small community has emerged around each. To celebrate trying new things while reserving a nod towards tradition, I'm giving away this limited edition box set of Chanel No.5 bath products.

There are three ways to enter:

1 Join the Telegram MadSpy Alerts group

2. Join the Telegram MadSpy chat

3. Comment, like, and follow MadSpy on Instagram

Each action is its own entry. You can do one or all three to increase your chances of winning. Tell your friends, loved ones, pet accounts, first and second cousins. Anyone who loves shopping. Thanks, from me to you. The winner will be chosen on Friday, July 23. Xx

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

 Nordstrom is known for having great sales. There are two in particular that can send a city girl shopping in the burbs: The "Half-Yearly Sale" and the "Anniversary Sale." The Half-Yearly sale is clearance, usually towards the end of the season. (Like, now.) The Anniversary Sale is a presale before the new collection hits the department store floor.

Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale begins Monday at 3am for Nordstrom credit card holders. The sale consists of a catalog of pre-Fall merchandise that is discounted 25% to 40% off. Each department has its own special items that are featured in the pre-Fall sale. You can sift through the catalog options right here.

The presale t is limited to customers who have a Nordstrom credit card. Afterward, on July 28, the sale opens to the general public. Prices return to normal once the sale ends near the end of the month.

"Back-to-school" items and baby gear are especially attractive during this Nordies sale. It's interesting that more upscale designers have realized that pre-gaming sale season is better than post-season markdowns. Don't forget to also check out the beauty deals. We are always a sucker for a new shade of lipstick or updated nail polish. 

Most of the most popular merchandise sells out before the sale opens to the public. That might be enough incentive to open a card or find a close friend who already has an account. Above are our favorite sales picks. We will be sure to keep this space updated as new items are spotted.
