Get ready Westsiders - Nordstrom Rack is crossing the Cuyahoga!

With the new opening of Nordstrom Rack in Westlake on Thursday 9/12, the Westsiders no longer have to make the trek east to get their fix. The Eastside vs Westside debate is always so much fun and now there is one less thing to argue about.  
But make the trek west is exactly what this Eastsider did for a sneak peak at the new store. Even with a wedding in 17 days, it was worth the trip.

The store was loaded with lots of great deals. I was drooling over purple Marc by Marc Jacobs and Kate Spade bags that I was able to resist only because it's totally NOT in the wedding budget if you know what I mean! 

I DID manage to score some items that were actually on my wedding shopping list: earrings (my 4th pair, but who's counting??) and socks for the groom and groomsman. Cue happy dance.
Gorgeous Nadri earrings 1/2 off for me and fun charcoal and coral striped socks for the guys
Add in a grey and black dress that will be the perfect piece to transition from fall into winter, a funky statement necklace and some beauty products and it was quite the successful trip. 

Made some new friends...

The Nordstrom Rack folks were the perfect hosts and hostesses.
