Meet BP. Blogger James

Hello BP. world! My name is James, and I am one of the new additions to the BP. Fashion Blog! I know what you’re thinking, “A guy on the BP. blog? How is this going to work?”

Well, it’s simple. Just like the other bloggers, I’m here to share my perspectives and opinions about the latest fashion trends. I’m so excited to be the first male BP. blogger, and I’m thankful to the wonderful people at Nordstrom for giving me this opportunity.

My journey started with a few sample posts, which led to an interview and then—BOOM—I was packing my bags and catching a flight to Seattle for “Blogger Bootcamp” at Nordstrom HQ.

After a long day of long flights from the East Coast, I snapped this picture of the beautiful city of Seattle from the window of my hotel. Then I tried to rest up for all of our scheduled activities the next day.

First we toured the Nordstrom headquarters and learned all the ins and outs of the branding, marketing and production that goes into creating BP. styles. The displays for inspiration, the mock-ups and the clothing were phenomenal.

After that we headed over to the photo studio where our talented portrait photographer captured this photo.

For my first day, I wanted an outfit with a classic feel, so I went with a simple chestnut blazer. But I also wanted to add a little bit of edge, so I chose a unique python dress shoe to complete the look.

I’m honored to be the first male BP. blogger, and I’m looking forward to sharing my style with you through the coming year!
