These Boots Are Made for Buying

22 Jul

I know we are in a major heatwave, but this time of year always brings one favorite annual event that denotes fall — The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. You have the opportunity to purchase new, fall merchandise at discounted prices. But, come August 8, the prices go back up. There’s everything from men’s to women’s to children’s clothing and accessories. Here are some picks from Motown Savvy, because in Detroit, you can never have enough boots.

If you are feeling edgy, try these Tory Burch boots at $299.90. After the sale, it’s really $495.00.

 

Two of my favorite blogs also posted information about the Anniversary Sale. Check out House of Harper and A Cup of Jo.
