And the Winner Is...
Note to Nordstrom:
Congratulations on winning the Fashion Noted poll of where readers would like to have a $1,000 shopping spree. I think you won because readers can find the latest fashions within your walls, as well as shoes, make up, accessories, perfume, etc. We can find almost all of our fashion needs in one store. We can even pick up things for kids, babies, the men in our lives, and not have to venture into the rest of the mall. You carry high-end designer items with price tags in the thousands, and you carry tank tops for $12.00. Thank you for stocking your store with the variety that we consumers crave.
Note to Readers:
Thanks again for voting in the Fashion Noted weekly poll. I like to see what your tastes, style and preferences are so I write things you are interested in. In honor of our poll winner this week, I looked on Nordstrom.com for some stand out items this season.
I am loving the houndstooth print this season. This is the Leifsdottir 'Houndspaw' coat. I love the print, love the slight volume in the sleeves, and I love the ruffle down the front. This coat has great design details, and if I can find $478.00 laying around somewhere, you better believe I'll be wearing it this winter!
I think this Yoana Baraschi 'Art Critic' watercolor silk dress is fabulous. The colors are vibrant, but appropriate for fall and I love the silhouette. The flowy nature of the dress is reigned in by the belt, keeping it from looking too much like a tent. I have never heard of Yoana Baraschi before, but now I am going to be keeping an eye out for more Baraschi designs.
Previous poll winner, Marc Jacobs does not disappoint with the 'Bramble Tweed' top. The wide neck and dolman sleeves give this top a unique silhouette, that would be flattering on many body types. I think it would look amazing with a pencil skirt or a pair of skinny jeans.
