Something Navy's Arielle Noa Charnas Interviews Style

Treasure & Bond x Something Navy: Our Chat with Blogger Arielle Noa Charnas

For fall 2017, our in-house label Treasure & Bond joined forces with Something Navy fashion blogger Arielle Noa Charnas for an exclusive new collection. It’s an ideal pairing for many reasons, one of which is that Treasure & Bond donates 2.5% of sales to organizations that empower youth —a cause that appeals to Arielle more than ever since the birth of her daughter, Ruby.

We chatted with Arielle at her sunny new home, close to a park where she likes to take Ruby after trips to Shake Shack. These play dates come at the end of Arielle’s days spent styling outfits, taking photographs and, now, designing clothes.

Lancôme’s Le Teint Particulier Custom-Made Makeup Launches Exclusively to Nordstrom

Lancome Le Teint Particulier

We like being the first to try new things. We’re what marketing folks call early adopters. That’s especially true when it comes to tech and cosmetics.

So we’ve found a winning mashup when it comes to makeup.

Nordstrom Del Amo Fashion Center and Nordstrom Downtown Seattle are the first two locations in the world to have Lancôme’s Le Teint Particulier technology. This revolutionary system begins with a facial scan that constructs your exact skin tone from a combination of more than 20,000 pigments. Once uploaded to a computer, your unique complexion ID is built—it’s like Mom always said, “You’re special.” Indeed, the match is uncanny.



Nordstrom Exclusive: Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 Collection to Launch Spring 2016

Olivia Palermo + Chelsea28 for Nordstrom

We’ve crawled her Instagram account enough to know about her New York Rangers obsession, model hubby, proclivity to taking scenic city shots from airplane windows and her adorable pup, Mr. Butler. But these are just secondary attractions to Olivia Palermo’s polished fashion sense. The lady is always impeccable, even when trying out the latest trends. No one adopts a style and conquers it so effortlessly as this fashion authority, collaborator and influencer.

So we are ecstatic to announce that the jet-setting and lovely Ms. Palermo has partnered with Nordstrom to collaborate on Chelsea28’s Spring 2016 collection. Chelsea28 already offers sophisticated modern essentials for the fashionable professional woman, but getting dressed in globetrotting, day-to-night, photo-ready attire just got much easier.

“Olivia Palermo is revered around the globe for her style,” says Mark Tritton, President of Nordstrom Product Group. “We know our customers look to her for fashion inspiration, and we saw her consistently on our inspiration boards as well. We think she embodies the Chelsea28 brand perfectly, so it was a very natural choice.”

We can’t reveal the looks just yet—though we’re dyyyyying to. Just think of pretty color combos, bare shoulders, tailored pants and shirts, and serene elegance.

By all accounts–Instagram or otherwise–it’s going to be gorgeous.

Bobbi Brown Interview: Her Best Advice, Travel Must-Haves, Summer Menu and What’s New

Bobbi Brown is a woman who needs no introduction, so let’s jump right into our recent interview with this much-adored beauty mogul as she shares her expertise, tips and tricks, a delicious (and simple!) summer soup recipe and so much more.


What’s the best beauty advice you’ve ever been given?
Bobbi Brown: My mother taught me that confidence is true beauty.

As a person who loves healthy food, what things do you find yourself going back to this summer? Even better, do you have a favorite recipe you could share?
My three-step soup on my blog, Everything Bobbi, is perfect for summer as it’s easy and works well with whatever veggies you have on hand.

Another summer favorite is my Coconut Kale Shake. I make it using coconut milk, cocoa powder, chia seeds, chocolate protein powder, frozen organic banana, frozen organic cherries and, of course, kale. It’s great for breakfast or as a midday snack.



Taylor Swift Nordstrom Exclusive Keds Shoes


In this image we see music/fashion boss Taylor Swift on a brief break from punching people in the face (have you seen “Bad Blood”?) to preview her Nordstrom exclusive sneaker for Keds at a private party in New York.

Nobody moved and nobody got hurt.

Seriously, though: Swift doesn’t really punch people. In fact she was gracious with her time at Canoe Studios in Chelsea and excited to meet her fans: a handful of BP. Fashion Board high schoolers, top Nordstrom customers and Refinery 29 contest winners.

Swift shot the breeze about this and that, talked about her pet seagull who lived in her swimming pool at her old Hyannis Port home–and enthused about her Keds. Especially the Nordstrom exclusive “Welcome to New York” sneaker, based on her song of the same name.

And speaking of the BP. Fashion Board: it’s worth investigating. If you know a teen girl or boy who wants to work in fashion they should sign upThey’ll learn about the industry, gain skills and maybe meet a pop icon.

Our Women’s Buying Team on House of DVF and the winning design.

The Diane von Furstenberg reality show, House of DVFin which a hopeful group of young women vie to become the brand’s global ambassadorhas taken us up, down and sideways. From new friendships and sad goodbyes to surprise twists and a $1,o00 dress that went for a swim, one thing remains constant: the gracious spirit and wisdom of Furstenberg herself. It’s no wonder the prize position is such a coveted one.

Did you see us on last night’s episode? Part of our women’s buying team was on set representing Nordstrom and had the opportunity to provide feedback to the would-be ambassadors about their designs and fashion—not to mention help select a winning dress to be sold exclusively at Nordstrom, in stores and online beginning this March.
