Budget Brand Focus: J.Crew Factory

    I’m with you Kelly, I’ve always done well shopping at Banana Republic Factory and J. Crew Factory. There’s a Nordstrom Rack about an hour from where I live but haven’t been to it yet. Have you shopped at one? If so , what is your opinion on their clothing and prices?

    • Hi Nancy! Thanks for your question. I have shopped online at Nordstrom Rack; mostly for shoes. They have amazingly good prices on higher-end shoes. Last year I scored Stuart Weitzman tall boots that retail for $700, for less than half that! I prefer to shop at Nordstrom Rack online because in-store feels a little overwhelming to me (and petite sizes are hard to find in-store). They have a large selection online and the prices are typically upwards of 45-70% off. The website also has petite sizes as a search function, which makes shopping for my size a lot simpler. Check out Nordstrom Rack online before you make the trip! Thanks again for stopping by! xo Kelly

    Terrific blog, Kelly! Excellent info!
    Re Nordstrom and NRack: most Nordstroms do not carry ANY petites. I had a rep in Burlington, MA brag to me how they don’t carry petites. You can order online and try on in store, though. I did this in Portland, ME, and the service was excellent.

    • Hi Maeve! I knew that was the case with Nordstrom, thank you for sharing about NRack, that’s helpful information. Thanks so much for stopping by, xo Kelly
