The new Nordstrom store in Ottawa is officially opening this morning, but I had the chance to see it (and shop) on Wednesday, during the pre-opening benefit gala. The event raised more than 180,000$ for 2 local organizations: Ottawa Cancer & United Way Ottawa. This is what I call making a grand entrance!
You know me, every gala and fashion show is an opportunity to snap a few stylish looks… and there were plenty at the Nordstrom event. Here are my 10 favourites (don’t forget to check out what I wore right here)!
Zara, 33. Blogger @ xovelo.com
It’s not the first time I notice Zara’s quirky style! I love how she mixes colours and her (always) fun accessories! Honestly, how cool are the tights, silver booties and horse clutch?
Kathy, 40. Director @ Nordstrom
Love the black and white leather jacket, love the leggings, love the perfect pumps… and I completely adore the Azzedine Alaïa (!!) pleated dress!
Melanie, 39. Stylist, makeup artist and designer
When Melanie designed this dress, she was inspired by Burberry Prorsum’s summer 2014 lace peek-a-boo skirts and the huge fringe trend from this fall. The result is perfect on her!
Erica, 28. Fashion journalist & tv personality
Erica is definitely one of the city’s best dressed… and she proved it again last night with this python pencil skirt that we all wanted in our wardrobe!
Christine, 43. Manager of the bag department @ Nordstrom
Want to get noticed? A printed maxi-dress is always a good idea!
Houda, 19. Student
When I asked Houda what was the inspiration for her look, she answered “bringing hippie to classic”… and that’s exactly what it looked like! And I love how her navy headscarf fits perfectly !
Mumina, 20. Stylist @ Nordstrom
Talking about scarfs… how stunning is this other look. When you have a face this beautiful, you might as well frame it!
And her look, mixing a tough leather jacket and a feminine full skirt is also on point!
Madisson, 19. Model @ Angie’s Models
I get a very Saint Laurent Parisian chic vibe from this look… and I love it!
Nicole, 35. Design & Discovery team @ Nordstrom
When you find a vintage piece that fits this perfectly, you buy it! I love the length, the combination of colours… and those lovely fur cuffs!
Kira, 31. Nurse
White high-waisted pencil skirt & black long-sleeved crop top… This outfit couldn’t be more perfect!
