We’re big Robert Glasper fans here at Nordstrom, Glasper being the Grammy-winning musician doing the most–the most, we tell you–to keep jazz piano fresh, relevant and connected to the youth.
He’s all over the rap album of the year, Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp a Butterfly. And Glasper’s upcoming album on Blue Note Records, Covered, consists of live versions of songs by wide-ranging acts he loves: Miles Davis, Jhené Aiko and Radiohead, among others.
Keep scrolling to read Glasper’s thoughts on where an uninitiated person should start with Miles’ albums, the courageousness of Kendrick Lamar, his top five emcees–and listen to him extemporaneously rap Tupac’s verse from Digital Underground’s “All Around the World.”
It’s the first day of spring and only hours until the weekend starts–two pretty good reasons to get up and dance. Here’s another–Risky Business, Grease, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Bring It On and scenes from 84 other movies with one thing in common: getting down.
Indeed: Men are from Mars and women are from Venus—or whatever all that hoopla was about. Bottom line: Dating can be weird. Your outfit doesn’t have to be—unless, of course, that’s the look you’re going for. Our friends at Topshop put this V Day vid together to inspire all kinds of creative solutions. Enjoy!
‘Twas the season to indulge, friends, but now ’tis the season to atone.

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.

Advanced Style, the movie based on the fabulously mature women featured in the blog of the same name and the ultra-charming photographer dedicated to documenting them, is not just a 90-minute endorsement of color blocking, print-and-pattern mixing and wild accessorizing, it’s an affirmation of life itself.

If you’ve been keeping up on the last few weeks of Listen Up! it’s not hard to suss out the Halloween-y theme. And today is the big day! In anticipation, we’ve watched a ton of videos trying to find that perfect one that’s creepy without being completely terrifying (and not “Thriller“, even though we love the Michael Jackson zombie-pop opus as much as the next person). Guess what? It was not easy. So while the video for today’s pick, “Falling In Love”, leans a little towards romance rather than fear, all of its amorous scenes are culled from one of the freakiest (pre-American Horror Story) TV shows ever: Twin Peaks.
“Who Killed Laura Palmer?” was a question on the lips of plenty of people back in ’90 when the series—created by Mark Frost and the auteur-of-odd, David Lynch—first aired. The quirky creep-fest, set in a small Washington town, featured a cast of zany characters: some kind, some with murderous intent, but all intriguing. It’s a seriously revered cult classic and if you’ve never seen it, you might want to get on that—based on recent reports, Lynch and Co. are planning to revisit the town of Twin Peaks very soon.
The music from the series was equally eerie, much of it instrumental and scored by Lynch’s longtime collaborator, Angelo Badalamenti. But there were a few dreamy numbers performed by ethereal chanteuse Julee Cruise.
Superstition can be a powerful motivator. Black cats, walking under ladders, knocking on wood, broken mirrors…these and other superstitions seem to cause seemingly logical people to do some seriously weird things.
Well, lump us in that category because since we started posting Halloween-ish videos at the beginning of the month, we’ve decided it would be bad luck if we didn’t continue down that path—at least until next Friday, anyway.
And while today’s pick reads a bit more Scary Movie than Scream, it’s still totally spellbinding, thanks to the charming Elisa Ambrogio.
