Economists already predict a double-dip recession. How are you expected to look stylish when you can barely afford your groceries? Put your scavenging skills to use at Nordstrom Rack where "designer" clothes are discounted up to 60 percent off the original price. Racks are overflowing with deals on dressy-casual workwear from Calvin Klein and BCBG and designer denim from J Brand and AG Jeans. Nordstrom Rack isn't one size fits all — the Atlanta location carries plus sizes, too. The real deals, though, are in the expansive shoe section in the back of the store where you'll find Badgley Mischka pumps and Stuart Weitzman strappy heels for 65 percent off. New merchandise arrives constantly, so snatch that half-off Michael Kors wedge before someone else does. 3495 Buckhead Loop Road. 404-736-2230; 3205 Woodward Crossing Blvd., Buford. 678-482-0123.shop.nordstrom.com/c/nordstrom-rack.
