I was able to find more selection within my price point (i.e. contemporary designers) at Nordstrom than at Saks. There are also brands at Saks not available at Nordstrom and vice versa (Stuart Weitzman, for example was noticeably absent from the shoe section at Nordstrom - a store KNOWN for offering a good selection of small sizes. SW is one of the FEW brands I can think of selling shoes as small as women's size 4. Trust me, when your feet are tiny, you know which brands to buy).They said "reasonably", not "modestly'. And Saks and Norstrom offer pretty much the same clothes.
