Stop whatever you’re doing and take a minute to study this picture. Imagine a gentle breeze and the sound of waves lapping at your feet. Breathe in the salty ocean air, and relax while watching a tropical sunset from underneath a palm tree.

You’re welcome.

Pop-In Q&A: Dusen Dusen

Our latest Pop-In shop, guest-curated by L.A. boutique/gallery Poketo, contains only sparse smatterings of apparel amidst a bevy of home goods and curious objects. If any clothing line could sit logically alongside the rainbow robots and functional octahedrons that shape Poketo’s aesthetic, though, it would have to be the innately wearable mash-up of midcentury modern and the Internet age known as Dusen Dusen.

Keep reading for a Q&A with Brooklyn-based designer Ellen Van Dusen, accompanied by a Dusen Dusen lookbook that was shot exclusively for The Thread.

With the opening of our first Canadian Nordstrom store just a couple of months away, we’re gearing up and getting excited about our new northern location by learning about Calgary and the things that makes it so cool—like The Calgary Stampede.

This annual, internationally known event is over 100 years old and features 10 days of happenings: from concerts and parades to chuckwagon racing (!) and one of the biggest rodeos in the world.

It’s also the perfect backdrop for some awesome pics from our seriously stylish Calgarian photographer friends, Ania and Tyler.

We adore Ania’s combo of a sheer blouse with denim cutoffs for a look that’s casual and sexy.

Saint Laurent ‘Small’ Bucket Bag

“Saint Laurent fringe bucket bag in my paw. ♥ All’s OK. ♥”

One thing I love about New York is that style is important to people, even if they’re just popping out to the bodega. Morgan was out running errands and looking perfectly put together. It inspires me to put more effort into my day-to-day looks. I love this feminine, flirty mini dress. Cutout details are a great way to add subtle appeal to a simple dress. And suede ankle booties are a great addition to any outfit!

Marina is my summer style idol right now! I am enthralled with the whole witchy/’70s/Western trend combo that has started to pop up. I’m not always sure I can pull it off, but Marina’s look has me ready to try again.

Her full maxi gets some western flair, thanks to a cowgirl belt. Marina’s modern jewelry, fringed bag and oversized sunnies add some city edge to her look. And don’t forget the most controversial new trend of the season—Birkenstocks!
