Happy holidays! It’s the most wonderful time of the year — Christmas sales season, that is.
Now that the gifts have been wrapped and unwrapped, the cookies cut and consumed, and the stockings hung and dug into, it’s time to get down to business. So many of our favorite stores, including Amazon, Nordstrom, Target, Everlane, J.Crew, Tory Burch, and dozens of others, are kicking off sales today, and prices rival what we saw on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
