By the time you read this, Rebecca Minkoff will be in the Bahamas. While we’re sure you won’t begrudge the beloved designer her beach break, please know that her time off is extra well-deserved; among lots of other things, she just visited our Seattle flagship where we talked to her about Nordstrom’s brand-new rollout of her jewelry and ready-to-wear collections.


Our Director of Creative Projects and Pop-In Shop Curator Olivia Kim offers up daily inspiration, favorite products and things she’s super in love with right now.

“I met Pinky on the street in New York. Her owner makes vegan handbags (and uses non-toxic, semi-permanent doggy dye gel for those pink ears).”


After nailing the art of killer kicks (what city girl doesn’t drool over a pair of Loeffler Randall heels?), Loeffler Randall’s savvy creative director, Jessie Randall, branched out in 2012 with a heart-fluttering lineup of must-buy bags. Loeffler addicts everywhere suddenly had to make room in their closets (and budgets) for another fixation. Of course, no one’s been complaining—Loeffler Randall’s distinctive handbags are gob-smackingly chic, but also lie on the affordable end of the designer handbag spectrum with clutches starting at $295.

We recently asked Jessie Randall to dish a little on her brand and the Mini Rider Crossbody we’re featuring in our ‘It’ Bags for the Street Set campaign this month.


Meet the perfect new way to show off your taste in style: the Rebecca Minkoff ‘Mini M.A.C.’, in color combos that you’ll only find at Nordstrom.


Mix and match your accessories like a pro with our selects for maxing out the season’s most stylish trends. Whether you crave color or have a taste for texture, we’ve got you covered in our shoe and handbag trend shop.

Don’t miss this second chance to get your hands on the coveted Rebecca Minkoff ‘Darcy’ satchel. A Nordstrom exclusive, this handbag was custom-designed using feedback collected on PurseForum by fans around the world.

Available in ‘black’ and ‘port,’ it’s a customer favorite that we just couldn’t resist bringing back for one last hurrah. Hurray!


“I think this bag is perfect for [the Nordstrom] customer because she is savvy. She’s very fashionable. She’s extremely conscious of comfort.” —Rebecca Minkoff

Marni + Romina Quirós

The latest brand/artist collaboration puts the spotlight on Romina Quirós, an Argentine illustrator whose elegant, minimal drawings appear on fall accessories from Marni. To celebrate the partnership, creative director Consuelo Castiglioni had panels featuring Quirós’s drawings installed in the company’s Milan showroom.


Quirós’s creative process is as simple as her artwork: she begins with a black blot on the page, and from there, playful characters emerge. Check out her work on this leather-trimmed iPad sleeve.
