Music festival season is upon us and to stand out in the crowd of normies, we recommend hitting the Magic Hour Pop-In@Nordstrom–it’s full of slightly bugged-out festi-gear curated by our director of creative projects Olivia Kim.
But we’re also wondering: Who’s likely to look freshest on stage?
We’ve got seven ideas, including country star Nikki Lane at Stagecoach, April 24-26, in Indio, CA–where Nordstrom will be on the grounds, representing on our How We Roll tour.
Lane’s known to rock sheer, ruffly dresses and can stand on two bulls at the same dang time. Her 1970s cowgirl punk style gets a thumbs up over here.
Word to the wise: If you can wrangle an invitation to Shawn Serven’s Seattle apartment, do it. Especially if you’re a fan of exuberant pop culture, candy-colored craft supplies and postmodern fashion libraries. And especially if you’re into all of those things yielding spectacular DIY fashion projects.
The brand Pintrill, out of Brooklyn, NY, answers the question: What if you took the collectible world of pin culture, and speared it through your phone and into your text messages?
Jordan Roschwalb started Pintrill in April 2014 with his girlfriend Doni Gitlin and homie Andrew Yung. He talked to us on the phone about the communal power of pins and future possibilities for the Oxford English Dictionary.
After speaking with him, we’re even more certain that these pins will get you noticed at a music festival or on the street. And maybe bartered with.
Here we have a little behind-the-scenes action from the photo shoot for Magic Hour, our new Pop-In@Nordstrom. For the uninitiated, Pop-Ins are recurring boutiques curated by our director of creative projects, Olivia Kim, which exist in select physical Nordstrom locations and, of course, online.
Magic Hour refers to the time at a music festival when the sun sets and tame gives way to turnt. Snapshots and a detailed statement from Olivia below.
’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.
In the eight cities listed here as well as online, we’re blowing out the best exercise looks for men, women and girls as Zone Zella celebrates strength, wellness, courage, power and style throughout the month of January.
Also this month: free yoga inside our Zella offerings. Don’t miss the scoop on that at the end of this post. But first: as part of the Seattle kickoff to this month-long event, local Zella PRO and yoga teacher Vanessa Garibaldi gave us the inside track on her three favorite Zella pieces before chatting with us about her philosophy, and then leading a crew through a special TGIF set of moves.
Sex, drones, and rock & roll: That’s one definition of Art Basel Miami Beach (ABMB), the international art festival which lights up South Beach and farther-flung Miami neighborhoods like Wynwood annually, with art, artists, art dealers, and art collectors all reveling in early December. It’s a true world party; everyone is speaking a different language. This year during ABMB, Nordstrom director of creative projects Olivia Kim hosted a VIP moonlit dinner at The Standard Spa with her dear friend Rafael de Cárdenas to celebrate Nordstrom’s current Gift & Go Pop-In@Nordstrom–Rafael being the architect and designer who helped create the physical Pop-In spaces with Olivia in select Nordstrom stores. The vibe of the evening was chill.
“Art Basel can be hectic,” says Olivia. “There’s so much going on every night. So, the intention was to host a casual dinner on the waterfront that was really about celebrating Pop-In@Nordstrom and the awesome gifts we were selling in the shops, and sharing that with our friends who were in town in a fun and cute way.”
Snapshots from the dinner are included after the jump (note the friendly video drone which hovered overhead, filmed the evening’s festivities, and can be purchased as part of the Gift & Go collection).
The holidays are about a lot more than wondering what’s in your stocking. This time of year is a much-needed annual reminder to slow down for a second and remember what’s really important. To reconnect with family, friends and loved ones. To count our blessings for what’s going well. And to make sure we’re doing what we can to help those in need.
FEED, a philanthropic brand that’s provided more than 85 million meals globally, can assist with that last part—while checking gifts for said loved ones off your list in the process.

Zeitgeist (noun; ˈtsīt-ˌgīst): the general beliefs, ideas, and spirit of a time and place.
Could you sub in accessory for “general belief?” We think so. Could you then say that Meadowlark’s septum ring, from our Gift & Go Pop-in—and RiRi’s recent Mert Alas, Marcus Piggott, and Edward Enninful W cover—is having a Zeitgeist moment? Um, yeah, we think so.
