The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale will run only from Friday, July 16 at 12:01 am PST through Sunday, August 1 at 11:59 pm PST. To get started browsing, click the photo below. I'd shop sooner rather than later since the best Anniversary Sale items tend to sell out quickly.

I've answered a few reader questions. Please feel free to ask more! I have also shared a few choice weekend looks with you! Is that something that you would like to see more of moving forward?
260 Days, No Repeats has helped me see the potential in my wardrobe and being part of this "blog-o-sphere" has inspired me tremendously. Thanks to everyone who takes the time to check out what I wear, read what I write, and leave me comments! I'm like a kid a Christmas when my BB beeps with an email and I see it's something from one of you! I am also inspired by the challenges that people undertake themselves, as well as, pose to this blogging community. In the first three months I participated in 3 style challenges and even tried for one of my own. Many thanks to Frances Joy of Mad Dress Game for joining me!
This challenge has also helped me curb my spending! I was not a crazy shopaholic but, I had my moments... I found it most difficult to turn down a great deal only to get home and realize that I had something exactly like what I had purchased in my closet or that even though it was a great deal I didn't really love it and therefore didn't use it. That was all money (which is tight for everyone these days) down the drain. In the past three months I have spent $46.00 on clothes and accessories and each one of those things is something I really wanted, still really like, and have used.
One thing that I feel I haven't done a great job of demonstrating as I had wanted to is the use value of my clothing. I would have loved to keep track like some other bloggers do but, to be honest some of my clothes are so old I don't remember when I bought them or how much they were. I will say though you can see that some items (especially the accessories) are used very frequently and naturally have higher use value.
Overall, I am so happy with how things are going to far and really hope that I can keep it up heading twoards the 6 month mark! If there is anything new you would like see please let me know. Again thanks so much for supporting and motivating me, you're the best!!

It seems appropriate that one of the landmark posts (600th, YAY) of She Spys The Buys would be about more affordable clothing options.... Let's talk about trendy rompers and one shoulder styles. I don't think I would personally buy this because rompers don't work for everyone, AKA me but, for some they are a really great summer style. The one on the right is a silk ABS by Allen Schwartz selling at Neiman Marcus for the "sale" price of $231.00 marked down from $385.00... I love the casual glamour of this romper especially the fabulous shoulder detail but the price is not very realistic for those of us on a budget! Thankfully, I came across this practically identical affordable option at JCPenny. Although it is not made of the same luxurious silk it is the exact same shape and style compelte with beautiful shoulder detail all for $39.99 marked down from $60.00! Perfect for a night out on the town with the girls or a hot date...
