Somehow it’s going to be August by the time we see you again on Monday, which seems impossible until you remember that summer always flies by as New Yorkers hurtle straight back to the inevitable winter that it feels like just ended.
We’ve come once again to Friday morning, and that means it’s time once again for an installment of our weekly roundup of bag deals. Retailers have mostly moved on from sale season (except Nordstrom, whose beloved Anniversary Sale is still going strong), but that just means the prices we’ll see in sale sections are as low as they’ll be all season.
The Dior Runway Bag was the first big accessory debut of the post-Raf Simons era at Dior (on the runway, as the name would suggest), and I was, admittedly, a little suspicious of it. That was at least partly because of my immense affection for the bags created during Simons’s tenure at the legendary French design house and sadness over his voluntary departure, but it was also motivated by the bag’s proportions and how out of place it seemed with current trends.
The only thing I know with any certainty in life is you shouldn’t mess with another woman’s handbag, especially a woman you don’t know. Some rando named Nina broke that cardinal rule of the Woman Code, and it was the match we needed to ignite the gasoline fumes coming off last night’s episode of Real Housewives of Orange County.
If you wanted to call in to work today, we wouldn’t blame you. Not only is it a summer Friday, but the hotly anticipated and much beloved Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to everyone!
Unlike most stores, which wait until the end of the season to put things on sale, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale takes a huge selection of brand new clothes, shoes, accessories and (of course) handbags and discounts them temporarily, which makes it an excellent opportunity to get some key pieces of your fall wardrobe at a great price.
