My journey in fashion began over 25 years ago as a Portland-based buyer for Nordstrom in New York City. After a decade of doing this work and developing a solid grasp of market demands, I learned that you need the key pieces that really work well together and that you can wear over and over again.

The latest arrivals are so good: here’s the list 🙌
This week, I’ll be heading back to work after being gone for exactly 100 days. It’ll be challenging to get dressed in non-sweatshirt-and-joggers outfits, and to try to walk in heels again 😂 but I’m really looking forward to seeing my co-workers. The environment will be very different, with the priority of health and safety for everyone. I’m excited to re-connect with many of you in Room 3 (even if it’s virtual)!
I’m proud of Nordstrom and their commitment to the black community, and of the way they are taking a stand on racism and injustice. As a company, they’ve made several corporate grants already and will also match their employees’ donations, which is wonderful.
So, the plan is to proceed thoughtfully and compassionately, and to go back to work while staying true to my personal motivations: Love first. Stand united. Inspire change. Support each other. Listen. Be kind. Do the very best you can … then do even better.
If you have any thoughts or comments or anything you’d like to share, please please dm, text, call or email me – I’ll always respond. Much love and warmest thoughts to all of you.
Here's the list!
Mother brand denim shirt
A soft, relaxed denim shirt will stand the test of time for years to come. It's SO versatile, you'll wonder how you ever lived without it! This one's a splurge for sure. Not in your budget? Check out the Nordstrom 1901 style.
I couldn't resist this new vintage tee, especially since we visited Pompeii last summer. And this is cool: my Aunt Irene, who lives there, was telling me about how Pink Floyd performed in the Pompeii Amphitheater in 1971, and she actually went to the concert! This soft tee is perfect with all your summer denim.
Halter dresses are flattering on most everyone. This ALC dress is the perfect option for summer casual events, and the pink floral print is really pretty! Adding a neutral shoe and a straw bag is a great option to keep it slightly more casual.
This shoe has just been re-stocked, and for good reason: everyone loves it! It goes with literally everything from dresses to jeans to jumpsuits, and the heel height is very easy to wear. I highly recommend not waiting too long, because these will sell out!
The key detail of all the Agolde sweatshirts is the puff sleeves. It's this simple and feminine touch that puts this sweatshirt in the cool category. You can't go wrong with either the v-neck style or the round neck style.
About Little Words Project: founded on the values of kindness, collaboration and support, Little Words Project is a line of inspirational jewelry made by a community of diverse women. Each handcrafted bracelet offers a heartfelt message that serves as a reminder to love oneself and be good to those around you, and is inscribed with a unique code that registers the wearer as a member of LWP's inclusive Nice Girl Gang. Love this!
NARS has expanded their offerings in the cult-favorite "Orgasm" color. According to NARS, "Orgasm is special because it happens to suit all skin tones, and the pink color and subtle shimmer gives you a natural flush. It's flattering for so many women." Try the lipstick and best selling powder blush. You'll be glad you did!
Adding a white denim jacket to your collection helps complete all your summer outfits, especially on cooler evenings. This slightly oversized fit adds just the right amount of style! And, the price is right.
