Green Onion Does Fashion

Nordstrom, the clothing store that I am afraid will take all my money if I walk past it.  The store I cant even enter because my tax bracket is too low.  Nordstrom, #3 on Trump’s terrorist hit list behind Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Canadian dairy farmers, has released their new line of expensive dirty clothing.  For…
