Deal Alert Part 2: Shoes, Bags, and More at the Secret Nordstrom Sale

secret-nordstrom-sale-shoesI rounded up my workwear picks that have been newly added to the Nordstrom sale earlier today, and then hit the shoes.  The sales aren’t as steep (sigh), but the selection is pretty great — almost all of the shoes pictured below have a TON of sizes left.  I didn’t see much I loved by way of bags, but a few cute accessories are also in the mix.  (For beauty, if you like the brand Napoleon Perdis, there’s a ton on sale — I’ve never tried it but a lot of it looks nice.)

My top picks, after the jump…

Deal Alert: The Nordstrom Secret Sale is Pretty Great

nordstrom-secret-saleNordstrom usually trumpets their sales, so it’s a bit surprising that they don’t have any messaging on their homepage or anywhere about this — but there are a ton of great workwear pieces on deep discount. Below, see some of my top picks — most are either 50% off or have 5-star ratings.

Frugal Friday: Boden Wrap Top

Our daily TPS reports suggest one piece of work-appropriate attire in a range of prices.

Boden wrap topThere are some crazy sales happening around the web today, probably as stores clear out whatever didn’t sell during Labor Day weekend. In particular, Boden has some great ones going on — the shoes, my goodness, the shoes). As far as work clothes go, though, I’m liking this simple wrap top in a variety of fun prints. Lots of sizes are left (both petite and regular), and it’s marked from $48 down to $30. Huzzah! Boden Wrap Top

Other good sales I’ve noticed: Talbots (nice $13 blouse!), Club Monaco (love this $69 dress for the weekend), and of course the Nordstrom Clearance Sale continues to chug along…
