Dark Fabrics and Uncommon Varietals with Winemaker Andrew Latta

If you’re a winemaker, there’s logic behind wearing a uniform of mostly black. If you’re a winemaker like Seattle’s Andrew Latta—who is more interested in having a hand in every step of the process than running a high-volume production winery—this is especially true. The nuts and bolts of making wine are often messy and unglamorous, and red wine pairs better with dark fabrics.

What to Pack for the Ultimate Golf Trip

Our friend Matt Walters—who happens to be married to Nordstrom Social Media Manager Carina Holtby—is going on the golf trip of a lifetime, headed to the Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia.

Tickets to the premier American golf tournament are extremely rare. But after years of entering the country club’s lottery, Walters was finally rewarded with tickets and is taking his dad, the man who taught him the game.

What do you pack on a trip like that?

Street Style: Diletta at Etro

Flared overalls are clearly a trending item this season. The Seventies takeover has dominated the Italian street-style scene, and Diletta is a prime example. This look is fully retro, but feels so contemporary at the same time. I love the sheen of these slim overalls and Diletta’s color palette is perfect for the throwback era. Long waves and a natural face work seamlessly with this Seventies style.

Nicky Hilton Gives Us Her 5 Must Haves

Hero

What is it like growing up in the fashion industry? Ask Nicky Hilton. A lifetime of Fashion Week front rows, strutting the catwalk and red carpets and eventually designing her own collections made Hilton a connoisseur of clothing. Having never employed a stylist, Hilton climbed her way up the best-dressed lists all on her own, trusting her own sartorial moxie to get her there. Now Hilton passes her secrets along in the form of a new book called 365 Style, which details her special formula for developing a signature style.

Hilton visited our Bellevue Square store on November 14 to give fans the inside scoop on her new book and answer a few of our burning questions. Here she gives us a crash course in personal style, including her five must-have items of the moment.

AG’s Mark Wiesmayr on Denim’s Cool Factor

Whether it’s dressed up or worn casually, denim’s effortless appeal can’t be denied. AG design director and surf enthusiast Mark Wiesmayr walks us through the brand’s spring 2014 collection and, in the process, bares the infinite possibilities of this durable and ever-evolving fabric.

AG ‘Stilt’ Cigarette Leg Stretch Jeans in White

On why denim has a universal cool factor: “It’s a ubiquitous fabric. It was made as workwear originally, so it never pretends to be too formal, and after wearing it throughout the last 160 years, we accept indigo as being a part of the monochrome family. It’s wearable with anything. Effortless is how so many of us want to appear, and that is part of denim’s cool factor. The way denim can be treated and given so many different finishes is also a part of being able to express our own individuality, without being too far out from the crowd.”

Street Report: Rola at Rebecca Minkoff

Rola is cute as can be! I love a good layered look, and Rola is masterfully mixing some of the season’s hottest trends. Textural coats are a major theme this winter, and her addition of a floral moto jacket underneath is so clever. Rola said she tries to get in the springtime spirit, even if it’s still snowing out. I, for one, appreciate her efforts to remind us of warmer days ahead!
