Racks of gorgeous runway samples, rows of designer shoes, and heaps of luxurious leather bags strewn about all amidst talented stylists and artists readying the models for showtime.
Cocktail + Shopping Hour
Free-flowing Moscow Mules, Grapefruit Fizzes, and white wine + Nordstrom’s fall designer pieces displayed for sale = my happy place. I’ll write up an outfit post on what I wore soon!
Sitting front row chatting with social media maven Jess Estrada, and surrounded by inspiring local editors, writers, and bloggers.

I am SO in love with your Celine luggage tote! It's on my wish list. I have the trio but I find the leather is so, so sensitive to scratches so I'm uber careful. Do you find the luggage tote is okay for everyday use? If I'm paying that much for a bag I don't want to worry about the leather scratching easily. Thanks!
Hi Mahsa! This Céline tote is pretty sexy, but it was on display for sale at the event and not mine. I totally get you about scratches on an expensive bag. The smooth leather on the totes are a little more durable than their other bags, but still easily scratched. It's why I'm teetering about getting the Céline box!
Cute pose with the Givenchy sweater! 😉
