“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.

Julep, we accept your challenge! Today, our very own Olivia Kim marched through our corporate offices in a Cynthia Rowley wetsuit on her way to complete the Ice Bucket Challenge for Nordstrom. A curious crowd gathered to watch outside our flagship store as she raised a bucket of ice-cold water to call attention to—and raise money for—the ALS Association. She challenged our friends Sarah Jessica Parker, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville of rag & bone and Lauren Bush Lauren of FEED Projects to do the same. It’s on!

“These are the ONLY headphones I use when I travel, and I am always on the go! They cancel out virtually everything, so I can zone out and listen to my favorite songs, book or movie from my iPad. #nodistractions”
