Discount shopping isn’t what it used to be. Most stores are filled with stock specifically made for the specific discounter. A small amount, usually around 20% of the merchandise, is bonafide designer merchandise.
To find the best true deals it’s often best to look for the premier designer duds. Right now, Nordstrom Rack is hosting a clearance sale where plenty of Etro, Fendi, Valentino and, even, Vetements are reduced to about 80% off. No doubt that many of these items are real runway items that were shipped off from your local Nordstrom store.
Online we found this color block Altuzarra v-neck gown is $480 from almost $2000, a Valentino raffia fringe dress is $750 from $4000 and a Dolce & Gabbana cropped blouse is $660 from $2750. This printed Roksanda maxi-skirt, that’s reduced to $430 from $1700, is versatile and stunning.
Unfortunatly, the handbag selection and shoes aren’t nearly as good. We suggest you stick to the clothing when searching for the best deals at discount stores. This Nordstrom Rack clearance only runs through Monday but keep your eyes open. The store holds assorted limited promotions where the discounts are similar.
