Nordstrom YOUphoria

I recently had the most fabulous time receiving a makeup and styling makeover at my favorite department store Nordstrom!  I’m from Seattle so I’ve been an avid shopper of Nordstrom since I was young.  The Anniversary Sale was always my back to school stop and now I go there whenever I need anything fashionable.  It is definitely my go to for affordable and designer wear so how excited was I when they provided the opportunity to get styled, enter into their YOUphoria fashion “competition” and host an event at the Nordstrom in the Oakbrook mall on September 26th

So here is where I need your help and support (as you guys are already great at this).  

Please go to this link HERE and vote for my outfit/me! And if you are in Chicago or the burbs, come to the awesome fashion shopping party I’m hosting with others at Nordstrom Oakbrook, September 26th from 6pm – 8pm in the Savvy Department.  Feel free to leave me a comment below on whether or not you’ll be there, love meeting readers and supporters.

A bit about my day at Nordstrom (and since I was in Seattle I got to do the whole experience at the downtown Seattle location where I grew up shopping) – I started off my day with Victoria at the Chanel counter. What I loved about her makeup application was the variety of makeup brands she used.  The best of the best instead of sticking to one brand.  Chanel, Laura Mercier, Nars, and Trish McEvoy to name a few.  She taught me about foundation and coverup and highlighting my eyes and cheekbones.

And because she had visited my blog she knew I loved a bold lip.  Here I am with Victoria and ready to be styled by stylist Nicole at Via C/Savvy next.  If your in Seattle – definitely ask for Victoria at Chanel or if you are visiting any other Nordstrom makeup counter – you can ask to try different brands that fit your skin type.  

Most people don’t know that you can request a stylist at Nordstrom to pull items for you with no minimum costs!  Whether it be for a seasonal shopping trip, special occasion or you just need some help, it is a free service for everyone.  This was my first experience and I loved it.  Nicole, my fabulous stylist had also reviewed my blog style and pulled a ton of looks for me.  Here are some great photos:

Loved her over the top excitement to be a part of my blog assignment and style me!

These are the looks she pulled and I was there for three hours;  I actually didn’t have time to try on all the looks in the dressing room but these were fabulous – it took me forever to land on which outfit I would style for the YOUphoria Nordstrom challenge!  I had a budget I was working on and since I’m  currently transitioning into fall,  the last outfit  was the one I landed on.  Plus can you tell I love leopard.  I showed up in leopard and left with leopard.  

 Which is your favorite?

Nicole and I in my final outfit (some slight revisions), switched up the hat and shoes only.  

What I am wearing:

Equipment Silk Bomber Jacket (love!)

AG Boyfriend Distressed Denim

Hinge Black Tank

Pink Wool hat (comes in 7 colors)  |  Camel Hat (5 colors) 

Lion Chain Necklace

Celine Shoes

Do you love Nordstrom’s, have you tried their stylist services?  

Don’t forget to vote HERE and if you can, stop by Nordstrom Oakbrook, September 26th from 6pm – 8pm in the Savvy Department.

Thank you to Victoria, Nicole and everyone at Nordstrom for always giving me the best service and smile.  I went with my mom and we had so much fun!  I love shopping but this experience was the best.

    I love your outfits & makeup! The top you wore in is amazing! Do you happen to know what brand or designer the leopard print bag on the floor in the first styling photo is? I am a leopard print fan, too, and I must have it!
