Shoes

This festival season, we were shoegazing even when the music wasn’t. In the process, we collected images of some of the coolest footwear from Coachella and Governors Ball. It’s a thing we like to do.

Nothing quite ties a spring-into-summer outfit together as a pretty pedicure to go with your sandals. When you’re polished up and stepping out in new shoes, you feel unstoppable—until you run into a street sign or a coworker because you were busy admiring your feet.

To inspire your shoe gazing, we’re featuring the season’s hottest sandal styles matched with equally exciting polish shades. But watch out: these combos are distracting.

King of kicks Stuart Weitzman has a legion of models and Hollywood starlets devoted to his designs. So sourcing the top models and fashion icons Joan Smalls, Lily Aldridge and Gigi Hadid to show off his spring collection in a series of sultry fashion ads was par for the leggy course.

Lily Alderidge, Gigi Hadid and Joan SmallsHis latest designs include delicate ankle-wrap gladiators, over-the-knee boots, heavier retro platform sandals and a black patent rendition of his staple Nudist shoe. On the gorgeous trio naturally they look glam. On you, guaranteed, they will too.

We spoke with Weitzman about why the models were cast, aside from their obvious beauty, this season’s footwear essentials and his fascination with legendary objects.

Of all the celebrities we know (well, not personally), we imagine it must be pretty great to be Ellen DeGeneres. Always upbeat, quirky but serious and smart when the situation calls for it, a friend of Hollywood types and a champion of ordinary people and underdogs: she’s a modern-day saint of talk shows and being true to yourself—following the canonization of Oprah, of course.

Now devotees of the TV host can experience life from the cush soles of this charismatic leader. The ED by Ellen DeGeneres shoe collection is now available, and we can’t wait to take these leather, suede, denim and canvas kicks for a spin around the dance floor or for a dance around the office.

Ellen Degeneres

We spoke with Ellen about why she wanted to design shoes, how she gets dressed, her dashing style and her earliest shoe memory. The answers were as zany as you might expect.

The Weekend Guide: February 5-7

Nordstrom Lunar New Year

 

CELEBRATE: Lunar New Year
Monday marks the beginning of the Year of the Monkey. We’ll be celebrating Saturday with a Chinese Lion Dance at our Downtown Seattle store beginning at 2pm PST. Other stores across the country will mark the occasion with events, red envelopes and surprises. You can also shop our Lunar New Year gifts online.

HEAR: Is the Is Are by DIIV
Although the band is its own hype machine for borough-residing hipster music (the lead singer draws exhausting comparisons between himself and Kurt Cobain), turns out Is the Is Are is a solid shoe-gazing collection of pleasurable listening. Leaning heavily on fuzzy guitars and muffled melodies, DIIV’s sophomore effort spins a cocoon of comforting sound.

READ: The Queen of the Night by Alexander Chee
Following the fictional opera singer Lilliet Berne through a historic romp of the Belle Époque, Chee’s epic novel constructs a dazzling portrait of the period’s fashions and players. Presented with a libretto mirroring her life’s story, Berne chases its provenance while encountering musical and historical enigmas all set to Chee’s evocative prose.

As a fashion retailer in a serious long-term relationship with shoes, this is the kind of thing that gets us excited (and feeling slightly remiss for not having said something sooner!). For anyone out there seeking inspiration on how to wear them, we’re sharing some of our favorite ways to style booties as seen on the street-style stars of 2015—along with the expert advice of our women’s styling director, Ruth Basloe.

What to wear with booties from Nordstrom.

As part of our Fashion Office, Ruth uses her encyclopedic knowledge of fashion trends and women’s style to translate to the rest of us her perspective on styling that’s as enviable as it is spot-on. Case in point: the following tips on putting the best looks together with—and looking your best in—booties. From making your legs look longer to the most flattering ways to wear this style, be bootie-baffled no more.
