It's that weird in between time toward the end of winter and beginning of spring. Sometimes those weird times are the best times to buy items you've had your eyes on. Nordstrom has some great stuff on sale even though they aren't really publicizing it. A lot of last season's colors are marked down along with some of the early spring releases. However, I don't really count brown or pink as seasonal or trendy colors; they can really work anytime. Also, I'm in the market for some new sandals, either gladiators or wedges, and Nordstrom has some great ones that are already discounted.
