Recently, some of the most stylish bloggers and vloggers in the LA area stopped by our Nordstrom The Grove store to get a look at the latest clothing from cool Parisian line The Kooples. We love seeing how people style outfits, and the dominantly black, leather and lace creations from this French fashion house exude attitude. Naturally we couldn’t resist staging a photo shoot while talking to Jenn Im (ClothesEncounters), Paola Alberdi (Blank Itinerary), Claire Marshall (HeyClaire) and Tania Sarin (tsarin.com) about finding style inspiration and what to wear now.
Paola Alberdi’s Blank Itinerary is anything but. This style influencer is constantly traveling to some scenic beach or cosmopolitan European city. On her blog and Instagram account, you can follow along to see what she’s packing. Needless to say, she is perfectly prepared for every destination.
This is always a tough one. I would say my personal style is mixing highs and lows, combining basics in every way possible and also playing around with textures and prints every once in a while. I love to try out new trends and adapt them to my style and create my own.
What are your favorite trends this season?
Everything with suede, and wearing different tones of greys.
How do you describe the fashion environment in LA compared to other major cities/fashion capitals?
Ahh, LA is LA, where stars are born! Isn’t that the saying? In this city, we don’t really experience seasons, so I do believe the weather affects our fashion in some sort, but I wouldn’t trade the weather for the world.
How do you prefer to shop (online, department store, boutiques)?
It’s funny to see how over time, I now shop more and more online, yet there is nothing quite like trying things on and walking out with that shopping bag.
