Because if there are two things we all could benefit from, it’s some quiet time and some fashionable fun.

Good Cheers: The Billionaire Cocktail from Our Restaurants

The holiday season should feel a bit decadent. But unfortunately it’s more often overindulgent: there’s overeating, overspending and many opportunities for overcommitting oneself. Come January 2, many of us end up feeling drained rather than refreshed. One way to ensure that we’re not overdoing it is to take time to appreciate and share in the small things. Like a delicious martini–OK, maybe two, but let’s not go overboard.

The Billionaire cocktail from our restaurants is just the thing to make you feel flush. It’s tart and sweet with homemade grenadine, a perfect palate cleanser after dinner or a pick-me-up at a party. And if you’ve really overplayed your hand this holiday, you can always stop by a Nordstrom restaurant to kick back and have someone mix this swanky drink for you.

How Emerging Designers Tackle (or Maybe Fumble—Hey, We’re All Human) the Winter Holidays

With the idea that the holidays deserve their very own holiday collection, Olivia Kim and the SPACE team created Winter Whites, a seasonal emerging designer shop-in-shop filled with killer gift-worthy accessories, books, housewares and more—and exclusive tweed skirts, rad denim and cotton hoodies from Simone Rocha, Marques’Almeida, Vetements and other top names.

In an interview about the shop with Vogue.com, Olivia said, “I’ve always loved all the various interpretations of the holidays and what they mean to so many different cultures. So, by creating a capsule around white, it seemed so fresh and renewing—like a clean slate.”

We, in turn, tapped a few of our favorite white-shop designers and got their take on what the season’s hottest hue cues up for them and how they approach this season of giving and togetherness.

Here’s How to Create the Season’s Most Stylish Dinner Party (and Brunch, and More!)

There’s more to the season than the bold-face main events. Not to take away from the traditions and ceremonies that mean the most to you and your family, but wouldn’t you agree that the last-minute get-togethers and low-key shared meals that end up happening before and after are every bit as meaningful and special?

And aren’t the outfits just as good, too?

We’re in favor of celebrating togetherness as often as possible, and we’re also in favor of looking at decor and party vibes in the same way we look at fashion: as a mix of classic motifs, artfully unearthed components and new, inventive spins on everything else. 

HERE’S HOW
