this NEVER happens.

i hadn't been to nordstrom since the anniversary sale started last week. this is the big sale that almost always has all the greatest stuff at really good prices, and i just hadn't had time to go, although i'd pre-ordered a few items at the laura mercier counter a couple of weeks ago.

  6. I think you should get some sort of hazard pay for this. Kudos for walking away. :)
