I got a request to post my recent shoe deals that I got at Nordstrom Rack and really, they are too beautiful not to share so please indulge me in my latest shoe purchases.
First thing I have to mention is that I have horrible luck at Nordstrom Rack. I usually never find anything good, much less designer so I don’t go in there that often. However, there is a Rack two doors away from my nail salon so I decided to drop in for a visit last week after my weekly manicure. Lucky for me, I happened to pick the best day to go as they had just recieved an entire shipment of designer shoes! I mean it was just racks upon racks of Gucci’s, Dior’s, Nina Ricci’s, Alexander McQueen, so much more I can’t even remember.
I quickly elbowed the other small asian woman standing in my size 5 aisle and snatched up every single cute shoe in sight. I then went over to the size 6 section and did the same thing. Oh yes, I hoarded all the good shoes but seriously, you should’ve seen the amount of woman swarming! It was a grab what you can and run kind of moment!
I tried on many a shoe and sadly since most of them were a 5.5 to 6 my feet were just a tad too small to fit. I found the cutest pair of Dior flats and willed myself to be a size 7, thought about adding padding, footpetals but sadly shook my head and gave it up. Don’t feel too bad for me though, as my hoarding did lead me to two gorgeous pairs of shoes.
These Nina Ricci’s have quite possibly become one of my favorite shoes in my collection.
Guess how much they were originally? $1,050!! no joke. And what did I score them for? $199! oh yea baby, deal of the century.
they are a size 6 so I do flip flop in them a bit but they were too pretty to give up. I’ve now got a Dr. Scholl’s foot gel insert and a footpetal in each shoe so they fit my feet properly.
The 5 inch heel, the bow detail at the back and the texture of the satin, ugh, how could I not?
My second find of the day were these pretty pretty Christian Dior’s.
Originally, $540, I got them for $179! Not as good of a deal as the Nina Ricci’s but Dior’s under $200 are still a good deal right?!
These are a 5 and fit like a dream. I think they will add just the right amount of fun to a little black dress.
I actually got another pair of shoes, but most likely returning them as they are a size too big and am unable to add padding to them. They are darling pink Dior flats. I wish I could keep them but because they are sandals and flats, you can totally tell how much bigger they are for me so I look plain silly. I wish I figured that out in the store but when you’re adrenaline is running you just gotta take what you can get!
