I am now even more of a Nordie girl than I was before! I buy most of my investment pieces (handbags, jeans, shoes etc. . .) at Nordstrom because they have a great return policy. Two friends of mine have had jeans that tore and were purchased over a year ago and they were able to swap them out with no receipt! Nordstrom was able to verify they bought them there because of the UPC code in the jean.
So when you are making investments to your wardrobe its good to know that if they damage before they should, a place like Nordstrom will make sure your money doesn't go to waste!
Look out for GREAT deals at Nordstrom Rack and the Nordstrom Anniversary and Half-Yearly sales!
