Regarding the latter, keep reading to see our favorite female NYFW attendees (as spotted on our sister blog, The Thread)—women whose beauty, poise and personal style are rivaled only by their talent and intelligence as photographers, models, buyers and editors.
Our friend Hollis Wong-Wear is kind of a big deal—and we’re not even saying that for ironic effect.
She blew up The Tonight Show alongside Schoolboy Q and Macklemore, belting out the crazy-catchy (in a good way) chorus to “White Walls,” a moonroof-open ode to the road. Her band The Flavr Blue pumps out indie/pop/electronic/alternative gems that will win over people (ourselves included) who weren’t even fully aware of how much they enjoy indie/pop/electronic/alternative music. And she cracked a Socrates joke within the first three minutes we met her.
To which the only logical response was, “What are you listening to lately?” Keep reading to find out.
To say that we like it when girls play in bands might be the understatement of the century—but let’s go ahead and banish the phrase “girl band” from the collective lexicon.

In case the invitations piling up under your refrigerator magnets (or—congratulations!—your own impending nuptials) weren’t enough, the photos pervading the internet in recent days of Kim and Kanye’s wedding have offered a more-than-sufficient reminder that summer wedding season is officially here.

Hoo boy. We try our best to wax philosophical on here about important life instances when the situation so demands, but man. Moms? There’s not much we can say that you don’t already know. The woman birthed you, bathed you—and for many of you, babied you well into your 30s. The least you can do is buy her a present and give her a call (CALL YOUR MOM, FOR PETE’S SAKE) this Mother’s Day—which happens to be this Sunday, May 11. But you knew that already. Right?
Do you know what would really make her day, though? Digging up some old photos and reminiscing with her—as several of our Nordstrom HQ colleagues were kind enough to do here. Keep reading for our collection of throwback photos, plus gift tips for every kind of mom.
Ever felt mildly overwhelmed when stepping up to that fragrance counter? Even the most experienced olfactory aficionado can go cross-eyed after sampling too many scents—the human nose has its limits. That’s why we asked our men’s grooming team to suggest their current three favorite colognes—and had an astute (and opinionated) office-mate, men’s video producer Angela Sumner, sniff-test each one.
Keep reading for three scents to try—and why—next time you’re on the hunt for a new favorite.
