Bossy should just be grateful she lives in the same state as a Nordstrom and stop whining.
Nordstromless in New Mexico
kristin @ going country saysJuly 16, 2009 at 11:38 am
You’d probably walk like that too if you had to wear those shoes. Good lord. My feet hurt just looking at them.
Lizzy saysJuly 16, 2009 at 11:46 am
Say it ain’t so, Nordstrom!
Do skinny jeans STILL have to be in? Dang. Let’s bring parachute pants back! Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
bdaiss saysJuly 16, 2009 at 11:47 am
Those boots are summer accessories here shortly. Sturgis is just around the corner (August 2-8). http://www.sturgismotorcyclerally.com/
I shall spend the week in hiding.
Rorrington saysJuly 16, 2009 at 11:48 am
Sears announced its online CHRISTMAS site last week. Criminy. STOP THE MADNESS!
(Also–Pet Peeve–why do models always look so ANGRY? You’d think they’d be happy to get the work, standing there wearing new clothes. Just sayin’….)
MariaV saysJuly 16, 2009 at 11:48 am
There is nothing wrong with her walk. She is about to collapse from being wrapped in wool in the middle of the summer.
Also, my feet ache from looking at the fall shoe line.
Ms. Cranky Pants saysJuly 16, 2009 at 12:00 pm
Future podiatrists rejoice!
vuboq saysJuly 16, 2009 at 12:03 pm
On the plus side, this means Summer Clearance Sales are right around the corner!!!! YAYz!
Now, if only I had money to spend at such sales …
~annie saysJuly 16, 2009 at 12:04 pm
That “walk” was the first photo taken at the shoot. Right as she was losing her balance and broke her ankle. No other model would wear those ill-fitted ill-fated shoes that day.
~annie saysJuly 16, 2009 at 12:05 pm
To #5 – Rorrington
The models look angry because they are HUNGRY.
David saysJuly 16, 2009 at 12:06 pm
Ack! Make it stop. Summer has barely begun. At least that is what I will keep telling myself.
Audubon Ron saysJuly 16, 2009 at 12:16 pm
Whoa, for a minute there I thought Bossy was typing about Nostradamus. Winter wardrobe predictions and such.
country mouse saysJuly 16, 2009 at 12:47 pm
That poor model had to slouch down because she was too tall to fit in the frame!
Skinny jeans, sweaters below the hips and crazy high heels: not clothing for little round housewives. Guess I’ll wait to go shopping for another year : )
Martha in Kansas saysJuly 16, 2009 at 1:17 pm
And look at the size of those purses! What do they have crammed in there? More boots and winter coats?
Dandy saysJuly 16, 2009 at 1:17 pm
I just got the Macy’s mailer that included coats, scarves and long sleeve shirts…..
a pre-fall sale of course.
Annje saysJuly 16, 2009 at 1:19 pm
The crazy part is that even Nordstrom here in TX will be carrying these clothes, though it will not dip below 90 until late Nov. What’s up with leggings and over sized sweaters? Those weren’t flattering when I was 13, I am certainly not going to be putting them on now.
julie saysJuly 16, 2009 at 1:53 pm
I’ve given up on summer. It’s mid July and we were still wearing jackets this morning and jeans most days. To my memory we’ve only cracked the 80’s twice all summer. Stupid stupid central NY. We’re surrounded by beautiful lakes but it’s never warm enough to actually GO IN THEM. Pass me my long sweater and wrap and boots.
Shelley saysJuly 16, 2009 at 1:56 pm
What’s really fun is when you live in someplace like Arizona and you go to buy a pair of shorts in August and all you can find is sweaters and jeans. And in Arizona in August, there’s still like 3 more months of summer left. I’m kinda glad I moved.
I love those boots though. Now in Colorado, I’ll actually be able to WEAR BOOTS. Yay!
p.j. saysJuly 16, 2009 at 1:57 pm
I think those purses need wheels. Actually, I think they would then qualify as “weekender” suitcases. Or diaper bags for triplets. Can one even bring them on a plane as “carry-ons?” Should one ask for a “gate check?”
O.k., enough ranting. Have a good weekend, p.j.
MeanOne saysJuly 16, 2009 at 2:21 pm
It’s been so mild here in my neck of the woods, that we’ve seen 50 degrees in the evening. I could use one of those wraps (which are super cute) for those nights!!
Fairly Odd Mother saysJuly 16, 2009 at 2:21 pm
Sister Mercy is my favorite new saying. I’m sure it isn’t “new” but man oh man do I love it.
And selling fall clothes in July? Sucks.
tj saysJuly 16, 2009 at 2:53 pm
…Yeah I was up at our local WalMart this morning and noticed they have Back To School supplies out already. So that means that faux pumpkins and Halloween decor will be following right behind with Santa pullin’ up the rear… It seems every year it just keeps gettin’ earlier and earlier… *sigh* :o)
…And why does that one model (4th photo w/the arrow pointing at her) look as if she’s walkin’ like Beetle Bailey? And seriously, the photo next to that one, who stands like that? Who is she, Paul Bunyan or somethin’…lol
…I feel so much better now…thanks Bossy! Blessings… :o)
Reeb saysJuly 16, 2009 at 3:21 pm
What struck me when I was looking through the selfsame catalog was the $130 sale price for one pair of leggings. That’s a lotta money to display my feature flaws. So I won’t.
rachael saysJuly 16, 2009 at 3:37 pm
I know…I saw the back to school supplies out in Target the other day and almost had a heart attack. It’s STILL summer. GEEZ.
Those boots ARE kinda cute though.
Sallie saysJuly 16, 2009 at 4:45 pm
But so that stores like Nordstroms can display their Fall clothes, they have to send over their summer ones to all those top-of-the-line places where I shop (Ross-for-Less, TJ Maxx…) (Only the finest for this trailer-trash lady who doesn’t do Winter any more.)
KM saysJuly 16, 2009 at 4:49 pm
Let’s just fast forward to Valentine’s Day and stuff our face with chocolates!
Anyone with me????
Michelle M. saysJuly 16, 2009 at 5:07 pm
I hate that the stores sell swimsuits in February and fall clothes in July. By the time I lose my winter weight and am ready to buy a swimsuit/shorts they’ll be gone. I really don’t want to wear a down jacket to the beach.
Bush Babe of Granite Glen saysJuly 16, 2009 at 5:27 pm
Could Bossy send seven of those sexy silver parkas plus those cute brown boots (in sizes 147 and 20 respectively!) cause it IS WINTER down here. Like frost-covered ground winter.
Plus we have SUMMER clothes being advertised… someone got all the Southern-Northern hemisphere mailing mixed up (like every SINGLE YEAR). Our models look cranky cause they are COLD and hungry…
vanessa saysJuly 16, 2009 at 6:44 pm
I should not have read this post…now I want tons of stuff that I can’t afford 😉
Debbie saysJuly 16, 2009 at 6:54 pm
Yuk. I started perspiring just looking at them. Thanks, Nordstrom.
Dawn in Austin saysJuly 16, 2009 at 7:17 pm
Thank goodness for the End of Summer Clearance Sale, because those are the clothes I wear all year. Winter coat? What is that?
Another Bridget saysJuly 16, 2009 at 8:16 pm
I LOVE the boots! Although I would prefer summer to arrive here in the Northeast FIRST! 🙂
Baby Favorite saysJuly 16, 2009 at 8:26 pm
I just love how stores bring out the winter clothing, just about the time I’m contemplating suicide because I can’t take the heat much longer.
It’s 114 today. Looking at sweaters makes me want to hurl.
So Not Mom-a-licious saysJuly 16, 2009 at 8:58 pm
I just told my husband last night, he better hurry up and buy boat stuff because in 3 weeks it will be all crap for winter. Why? Why? Everyone feels the same about it except for the manufacturers. i just don’t get it.
Well Read Hostess saysJuly 16, 2009 at 9:05 pm
Surcie saysJuly 16, 2009 at 10:28 pm
I hate the way retailers rush us into the next season. (That’s why I was pissed to get a kids’ Halloween costume catalog in the mail yesterday.) But I think I hate being Nordstromless even more.
kate saysJuly 16, 2009 at 11:31 pm
what is this winter you speak of?
sunny in san diego
L saysJuly 16, 2009 at 11:31 pm
I hate to get the Halloween catalogs in the mail. It means only 1 thing to me. Another year older.
Stephanie saysJuly 17, 2009 at 2:00 am
While you’re at it, can we discuss Target selling school supplies and Hallmark already carrying Christmas ornaments?
Cheri saysJuly 17, 2009 at 2:16 am
I have memories of my mother making me try on sweaters and corduroys for school while it was blazing hot in the summer! They are, needless to say, not pleasant memories.
Ungirdled saysJuly 17, 2009 at 7:00 am
Sistah, I hear ya! Oh, and the walk comes from models’ lack of nutrition and trying to walk around on newborn calf size legs on stilt-like shoes!
Momish saysJuly 17, 2009 at 8:52 am
I will never shop at Nordstroms again. I take my summers very seriously. The idea that it will end and the dreaded winter will be back is enough to make me lose it. I prefer to stay in a state of denial, thank you very much.
Tracy (Oklahoma) saysJuly 17, 2009 at 11:18 am
I was in Hobby Lobby yesterday here in Oklahoma and they have Halloween, Thanksgiving AND Christmas decorations out. I couldn’t believe it. Also, good luck finding a pair of shorts or a new swimsuit around here. Fall clothes are hitting the racks! UGH!
Gaby saysJuly 17, 2009 at 12:33 pm
My husband and I painted our bathroom and all of the trim in our house (ALL.OF.THE.TRIM.), and I thought of you and your brother, painting houses, and I wanted to salute you. Because, seriously. Damn. Painting is hard, and painting well is REALLY hard. Add this to the “Reasons why Bossy is awesome” folder.
Lisa saysJuly 17, 2009 at 12:58 pm
The word is out, people arent spending…say it SPENDING, so retailers are getting their SHAT out, christmas, winter, halloween, ect EARLY, so’s to entice all of us with their wares…….heaven help us..wraps boots and all that bad bad footwear..
love from the beach, babe!!
Lisa saysJuly 17, 2009 at 12:59 pm
our Washington Coast summer is really just STARTING!!!
Domestic Extraordinaire saysJuly 17, 2009 at 1:15 pm
I hate that all stores seem to do this. Its just the middle of July and I can’t find a swimsuit around here anywhere.
hana saysJuly 17, 2009 at 7:15 pm
I just came back from the Valley and for sure, for sure….it’s still summer. Anyone who thinks differently should be gagged with a spoon or a pitchfork! LOL
SwelteringSummerSouthie saysJuly 17, 2009 at 7:53 pm
Some sort of cosmic-karmic thing just happened wherein I googled people complaining about paint colors on House Hunters, found this blog, read this entry because I love but am not near a Nordstroms, and a commercial came on TV with the Voiceover Guy screeching: END OF SUMMER SALE… which may work if it weren’t on TV in New Orleans, where summer ends some time in November.
Amber Star saysJuly 18, 2009 at 12:46 am
But, Bossy…now is the time they put so much clothing on sale to last us the rest of the summer.
The colors look to be those predicted at the end of last year…black, black, and grey. Economy based colors.
Dorothy Stahlnecker saysJuly 18, 2009 at 5:33 am
And I can’t breathe when they begin Christmas in August…I want to throw up….
Dorothy from grammology
Mocha saysJuly 18, 2009 at 7:36 am
I’m still looking for a swimsuit. I’m always late on this stuff.
Dying laughing here at “economy based colors” from Amber. I’m using that next time someone says, “Oh, I love that top. What color is it?””
“This? It’s just Economy Grey.“
JennyMac saysJuly 18, 2009 at 9:10 am
Yes, far too early for winter coats but mmmmm NORDSTROM is one of my favorite words. And Store #1 is in my hometown. The ones here pale in compare.
judy saysJuly 18, 2009 at 10:38 am
Love the boots…in a size 7 or 8. When translated into a size 10, can’t help thinking Herman Munster when I look down and end up putting them back. So sad.
Alissa saysJuly 20, 2009 at 12:25 am
Just becasue they sell it doesn’t mean you have to buy it!!!
And, please god, don’t let wedges be out of style yet…
Kelly saysJuly 20, 2009 at 12:48 am
On the home decor front, I was in Pier 1 today, and they had PUMPKINS out on display. Pumpkins and orange and rust colored pillows and twig wreaths with those orange berries. It may have been “autumn” inside the store, but outside, it was 103 degrees. If I go back next month, no doubt they’ll have Christmas decor out.
foolery saysJuly 29, 2009 at 1:23 pm
Am catching up on all I missed (a lot) and not commenting until now BUT I wanted you to know I was here AND since no one else is as late as me then no one will care if I am spare with the punk-chew-a-tion
the grey bag? MY GOD! It’s gonna tip over that skinny model — QUICK! Prop her up!
And that weird walk is actually her Peewee Herman “Tequila” impersonation. I’d recognize it anywhere, as a fellow impersonator. Nuh nuh nuh-nuh nuh-nuh- nuh nuh . . . TEQUILA
