Caroline Issa Gets “Papped” in Nordstrom Signature Collection

Caroline Issa dropped a new one on us the other day: “papped.”

“I got papped in my pre-fall top and skirt,” she mentioned in an email, and then included a link to street-style photographer Phil Oh’s recent Milan slideshow on Vogue—which made it all crystal clear.

Papped: to be caught looking chic by the fashion paparazzi.

Caroline is used to it, of course, and the fact that this last Milanese moment happened in a look from her Nordstrom Signature collection isn’t surprising. The collection was made to catch eyes in the most low-key, effortless way. It was also made to mix and match, which was one of her big call-outs when it launched and probably why it goes where Caroline, our favorite Fashion Week world traveler, goes.

It couldn’t be any easier to get the look. Explore the whole Nordstrom Signature and Caroline Issa collection.

Oh, and that earring in the photo from Milan? That’s from the one and only jewelry designer Charlotte Chesnais.
