It was as if the universe just knew that the perfect way to make me feel better about summer coming to a close was to comfort me with big summer clothing and accessories sales at Nordstrom, ASOS, and ModCloth—three of my favorite stores for fashion you can actually afford. And that kind of retail therapy is exactly what I’ll need as September rolls around.
Despite my gloomy mood about an impending fall, I couldn’t be more excited about the fact that these sales mean I can actually afford my favorite items from sales at Nordstrom, ASOS, and ModCloth. Take, for example, this B-A-N-A-N-A-S Kate Spade tote — it’s 33 percent off and so worth it. Now, I can sing Hollaback Girl whenever someone asks about my purse (life goals). And one thing that I’m always eager to add to my collection is a fantastic pair of stretchy skinnies like these or an LBD (that’s Little Black Dress) — they’re both timeless closet must-haves that are even better when they’re on sale.
Then there are the special one-time-only things you just treat yourself to, like a super sexy body suit or a pair of sparkly heels. Why? Because you deserve it, that’s why! And I don’t know about you, but when those little luxe treats are on sale, well, you’d be silly not to go for it!
