for those of you living near a nordstrom rack, i highly suggest a lunchtime or after-work visit…today, if possible. i took a little time to check it out yesterday, and they have some pretty serious sales happening – a good chunk of the store is marked anywhere from 35-60% off the lowest marked price – i spotted nanette lepore, burberry, james perse, splendid…definitely above and beyond the usual suspects.
the rack is always my favorite super-secret source for designer denim (you do know about this, right?). even the highest-end styles top out around $80 there, instead of the $150+ you’ll pay retail. but yesterday, i may have nabbed my best deal ever: a pair of paige denim’s “jimmy jimmy” boyfriend jeans marked down to $79, with an additional 60% off!!
yep, brand new paiges for $30…life is good. i’m always the world’s biggest fan of paige denim (she and i just seem to have the same butt, what can i say?), but the cut on this jean is especially nice. it’s a bit loose (try going down a size), but the backside is still super flattering and the rise isn’t too low. plus, the distressing is subtle enough that even grown-up girls can wear them. i’m especially loving this style because it’s not actually cropped, like so many of the boyfriend jeans. it’s perfect rolled up, so you can have that ‘boyfriend jean’ look, but when it’s out of style, just unroll the cuffs, and they’ll be a great straight leg jean.
to nab this steal, just stroll on past the regular racks of denim and look for the clearance rack – there were a few rock & republic styles, and even a pair or two of joe’s jeans, all at some seriously amazing prices.
oh, and while you’re there…i spotted at least two pairs of jimmy choos (including these lovelies) for $229, plus an additional 35% off. just sayin’.
