Never has the trope “Tough job, but someone’s gotta do it” seemed as oddly apt as it does right now. On one hand, I’m counting the days until New York Fashion Week kicks off—two weeks to go!—while on the other, I’m frozen just thinking about it all. And then I think of Crystal.
A lot to think about? Maybe, but thinking keeps the brain warm—if not the body. And depending on where you’re at right now, you can probably use all the heat you can get.
Which brings us to this image from Marie Claire Netherlands’ new February 2015 issue in which photographer David Cohen de Lara and stylist Marjolein Mos stage model Sophie Vlaming in a sort of winter-on-top, spring-on-the-bottom kind of situation.
(And those eyebrows? Yeah, we should probably talk about those sometime soon, too.)
In the meantime, may we invite you to steal this look with our handily selected picks?
‘Twas the season to indulge, friends, but now ’tis the season to atone. Throughout the month of January, we’ll be bringing you all sorts of Wellness Realness–information and inspiration you can use to get out of lax mode and into good-for-you mode. Or at least stop eating cookies for lunch and skipping your morning run.
What happens behind the scenes on a typical Nordstrom catalog shoot? Well, that’s a subject for another day because our recent Zella shoot was anything but typical. It was inspiring, motivating, captivating, beautiful and about as peaceful and Zen-inducing as a photo shoot can be.
Credit Missy DeWalt with a lot of that. Our Mission ViejoZella PRO is as gorgeous as she is strong and centered. Watch her in the video here and see if you don’t agree—and then check out her expert tips on leading a healthy, fun and well-curated life.
As of presstime, you have 25 shopping days until the date night of all date nights, Valentine’s Day. Do you know what you’re wearing? Because we talked to four of the most in-love and Instagrammed couples on the Internet, and their plans are looking pretty solid.
Mine these interviews for outfit ideas, date itineraries, soundtrack notes and general romantic maneuvers. Oh, and good Instagram feeds.
The shoe is killer, for sure, but it’s also all about J.Lo’s mad skills in putting it out there. To wrap our heads around this red carpet move, we talked to a pack of Nordstrom experts—Art Director Brett Wiseman, Photographer Barb Penoyar, Stylist Ricardo Martines and Model Andrew Shaw—about posing, and specifically, posing tips that we can use IRL, too.
Here’s how you can bend it like this babe:
-Angles are your friend. Turn your body just a bit to the side to appear trimmer.
-Always have a thought in your head, connect with the camera, smile with your eyes.
-Stand up straight, no slouching!
-In a group be sure you can see the camera. If you can’t see the camera the camera can’t see you.
-Push your chin just slightly towards the camera to create a clean jaw line.
-Practice! A couple of minutes in the mirror can teach you your best angles!

Just coming clean here: We’re not exactly ready to start working out yet, but we would like to think about working out while laying on the couch for just a little while longer. And ideally, the thinking we’d like to do on the topic of working out would really be creative thinking. Like, what can we do that counts as working out but isn’t exactly working out? Call it six degrees of separation from actual exercise, but right now, rollerskating sounds a lot better than running laps. Here are ten movies that might just put these sweats we’ve been wearing to actual use … someday.
Of all celebrated occasions and festive dates, New Year’s Eve expects the most out of your outfit. Especially if you’re going to be in New York City, and especially if you’re writer/singer/style iconHollis Wong-Wear.
No, the Seattle-based GRAMMY nominee and Macklemore collaborator isn’t performing in the final moments of 2014—or at least there are no plans for such a thing as of yet. But wouldn’t “always be prepared—and dressed!—for anything” be a good New Year’s resolution? And one to enact early? We took Wong-Wear into the dressing rooms of our Downtown Seattle store to dial in three versions of ready-to-go ready-to-wear to kick off 2015.
