Erno Laszlo ‘Sea Mud’ Deep Cleansing Bar for Normal/Combination Skin

“This amazing sea mud cleansing bar was a classic nighttime ritual for Marilyn Monroe, Jackie Kennedy, Audrey Hepburn and Greta Garbo—and it is still around today! The recommended “splash” method of rinsing is my fave thing about it!”

A favorite of fashion and street-style photogs, Caroline Issa embodies modern style with just the right dose of fresh—only one of the reasons she’s become a style blog darling and industry notable.

A few of our snaps of Issa over the last few seasons at Fashion Week.

Counting ourselves as among her biggest fans, we’re extra excited to announce that in February 2015, Issa is infusing her most-wanted style into an eponymous collection exclusive to Nordstrom. (♥!)

A savvy creative consultant, fashion director (TANK Magazine) and overall incredibly talented human being, Issa is adding her fabulous touch to 25 ready-to-wear styles. In the works since early this year, Nordstrom Signature x Caroline Issa will launch with a current, chic and covetable mix of wardrobe must-haves, like easily transitioned day-to-night beauties, gorge foundation pieces and more.

Caroline is designing each piece with an eye on versatility, wearability and luxe materials—all reflecting her vision of modern, easy closet essentials for any woman who doesn’t mind a little attention from the street-style paparazzi. It’s all about her philosophy of investing in beautiful clothes that will last—and that you’ll want to wear—for a lifetime.

We’re totally behind building a closet you know you’ll love every time you open its doors, and we’re 100% sure that Caroline’s collection is going to make that very, very easy.

Stay tuned for more about our partnership, surprise exclusives and for the much-anticipated debut of our newest collaboration.

Prada Mule

“I found my mule for the season! This goes with everything from skirts to skinny jeans and can even transition to fall. I usually wear cute socks with my mules—or with any shoe, for that matter!”

Listen Up! Alvvays

We’ve been on a bit of a Canadian kick recently. Last week, we scored an interview with the talented and supremely interesting Calgarian singer-songwriter Chad VanGaalen. This week, while mining the interwebs for cool new music to share, we stumbled across Alvvays.

The Torontonian (for real!) five-piece has been getting plenty of attention since the video for its single “Adult Diversion” appeared last fall, and things have really been heating up lately thanks to the recent release of the band’s self-titled debut.
