Now is the time to invest in this burgeoning wunderkind. Launched just four years ago, Gurung’s namesake brand has appeared in the wardrobes of everyone from Michelle Obama to Lady Gaga—a testament to his balance of timeless femininity and boundary-pushing concepts.

In this Thanksgiving edition of What’s Cooking, Nordstrom Blog Editor Jeff bakes a luscious pumpkin and Frangelico cheesecake with a hazelnut crust from the Nordstrom Friends and Family Cookbook. It’s a make-ahead dessert worthy of a place at any Thanksgiving table.
With another simple-to-follow recipe developed by our corporate chef, Michael Northern, and his small army of chefs and contributors, Jeff proves (with his photographic evidence) that you don’t have to be a professional chef to transform beautiful ingredients into irresistible food that’s meant to be shared with family and friends.
There’s so much cool stuff in our latest Pop-In Shop that we’re highlighting a few items each week, to help you in your quest to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list.
Today’s pick is the super-cool Jambox from SF tech-innovators Jawbone. These seriously stylish portable speakers are designed for “anything with a play button,” so you can get wireless, hi-fi sound whether you’re playing Bit.Trip Runner on your iPad, Skyping with an important client or setting the mood for a romantic picnic—and you can do it virtually anywhere.
Jawbone’s Jambox (clockwise from top left) in Blueberry, Watermelon, Ice Cream Sandwich and Grilled Cheese—yum!
For Pop-In: 4U, we custom-designed four food-themed color combos, which range from complementary to contrasting. Then we asked a few of our music-loving (and -making) friends which song they’d stream if they received one of our tasty custom-color Jamboxes as a gift.
We get that finding the perfect gift can be tough. That’s why we created Pop-In: 4U—a collection of the coolest presents on the planet. And to help you out even more, we’re giving you a little extra background on some of the stuff we’ve stocked, so you know you’ve gotten the ultimate gift. First up is Found My Animal.

From Betty and Veronica to Charlotte and Olympia, the American comic series Archie gets a 2.0 revamping thanks to the clever shoe and handbag designs of Charlotte Olympia Dellal.
On the inspiration behind the Archie collection: “When I was 10 years old, my best friend used to go to America every holiday and bring back Archie comics, and I still read them today,” says Dellal, who launched her London-based eponymous label in 2008. “I take a very nostalgic approach to design—the essence and sensibility of the brand come from my love for old Hollywood and movie stars of the ’40s and ’50s. Betty and Veronica are the perfect pin-ups!”
