Confessions of a Shopping Genius

UPDATE: A winner has been selected! Thanks for all of your entries! 

WhatIWore: I’ve got a love/hate relationship with rules, but I do think it’s important for every woman to set her own standards or game plan when it comes to her wardrobe. For example, when I have a shopping trip coming up, I have a rough list and a definite list. For my trip to Chicago a couple weeks ago, I knew I REALLY wanted a white leather satchel, so when I saw that Rebecca Minkoff white leather number at Nordstrom Rack, I scooped it up right away. Other times, I’ll go with a little more of a rough idea like for the Columbus (Dublin) Ohio Rack opening, when I just wanted a cute summer dress (not posted on WIW yet, but I instagrammed it here). Here are a few more of my “rules." 

My Shopping Confessions: 

I don’t think white should be limited to the summer season (like my new satchel!)

95% of my purchases should work for at least three different outfit combinations (see how I’ve worn my white leather jacket here, here & here)

…The other 5% can be just because splurges.

I’ll totally copy your outfit (imitation is the best form of flattery, darlin!) and might even ask you where you got it. 

What’s your MO when it comes to your wardrobe? Together with my friends at Nordstrom Rack, I’m inviting you to share your shopping confession (and what makes it genius!) for a chance to win this gorgeous Michael Kors Handbag and all of the goodies featured inside (Fendi Sunglasses, Coach Fragrance, Stila Lip Gloss Trio, Kate Spade New York Lipstick, MICHAEL Michael Kors Wallet, evoque candle and Trina travel makeup case). Trust me, I was tempted to keep a few things for myself, but this was too great a prize not to pass it on in all it’s glory. Hint hint: open that wallet to reveal a $100 Nordstrom Rack gift card inside too! They’re opening new stores all over the country this year and recently launched online at too. I have no doubt one of you lucky gals will be able to put it to great use.
