A few weeks ago, I was posed with a shopping challenge and as any good woman I couldn’t turn it down. I was handed a $500 gift card to Nordstrom Rack and was told to get THREE full outfits, centered around completely different themes. The looks had to be head-to-toe (no cheating!) and on trend. War stripes were painted on and I went to business at the Nordstrom Rack in Union Square.
blouse: Democracy; Denim: Joe’s Jeans; Shoes: DVF – all via Nordstrom Rack!
I’m no stranger to Nordstrom Rack since I’ve practically made it home base since its initial opening. For Fall 2012, the store has some cute retro chic items and they’re dubbing it “The Return of Style.” The minute I walked in, I was greeted with feminine blouse, colored leather jackets (I saw a beautiful brown leather vest that was soft as it was beautiful), loads of novelty skinny denim and lady-like pumps. In other words, I was in heaven.
Look one for the challenge: How to Get Game Day Glam. Admittedly, I don’t get into sports until it’s wayyyy too cold for me to leave my house but when I’m into it, the focus is there. I usually go dressed down, but no one says you can’t add a hint of glam into your game day wears. How do I do it?
Add some sparkle
Focus on a color theme (I chose red, but pick the color for your favorite team)
Jeans are your best friends, and
Include the glam with your footwear. Let’s face it: you’re not the one playing so you don’t have to rock sneakers.
How did I do?! I like this look. It’s cute yet casual. I can see myself going to some sports bar and fitting in (right?). Check out nordstromrack.com to find your local Nordstrom Rack and discover on-trend brands at up to 70% off.
