Happy Anniversary!

After hyping up the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale last week, I have to let you know that the sale is finally open to the public! Early Access is over so now everyone can score the 40% off deals, no matter if you have a Nordstrom card or not, before the prices go back up on August 3rd!
