Cape Disappointment

“The lighthouse here is the oldest lighthouse on the northwest coast. Cape Disappointment has also been known to be called Graveyards of the Pacific, there have been so many shipwrecks here because of the treacherous waters of the peninsula! I love the history and story behind this!”

Tunnel at Oneonta Falls

“Great hiking on the other side of this beautiful tunnel! I hiked to the top last weekend with my best friend Joey—the waterfalls up there are breathtaking. Triple Falls was one of our favorites.”

¿Por Qué No?

“A restaurant in Portland with the most amazing vegan tamales and micheladas (a drink made with beer, lime juice, piquant seasonings and sometimes tomato juice). So refreshing!

Prasad

“Amazing vegan café inside a yoga studio. Food is SO good—the Mighty Bowl that I had was the MOST delicious thing I have ever eaten in my life. The basic bowl on their menu has a suggested price…it is really healthy, hearty food and if you only have one dollar, you can still buy it. I think that is so awesome!

“I also loved their banana sandwich with hemp seeds. Doesn’t it look so pretty?!”

Vogue, W—and now Elle? We’d like to congratulate our own Olivia Kim, Nordstrom’s Director of Creative Projects and curator of our rotating, themed Pop-In Shops, with a metaphysical high-five for being featured in this month’s issue of Elle, on newsstands now.

In the two-page profile, Elle calls our colleague “the tattooed poster child for cool” and praises her point of view as “a woman in a position to change the way millions of Americans shop.” For her part, Olivia offers tips on office attire (such as mixing tulle skirts with menswear-inpired button-downs), shows off her shoe collection (which ranges from Prada and Miu Miu to Crocs, Docs and Jordans) and previews our next Pop-In@Nordstrom—a collection of sustainable and socially responsible pieces that launches in mid-September.

Read the full story at Elle.com, and pick up a hard copy for your coffee table (just look for K.Stew on the cover):
