Today I might be wearing some familiar designer brands (Marc Jacobs – by the way this denim skirt is $250! and Gucci), but I’ve loved discovering some lesser known designer brands at Nordstrom, like:

  • ACNE Studios: a Stockholm brand with all of the minimalist-luxe looks that you would expect from a Swedish brand. This look is my absolute favorite right now: relaxed but polished and different all in one. Also favorited this skirt.
  • Creatures of the Wind: several years ago I had the privilege to interview a talented pattern maker known and employed by many fashion houses and one question I had asked in particular was: what brand is most exciting to you right now? His answer was Creatures of the Wind. So this brand has been on my radar since. This dress is my favorite from their current season, and also love these sandals with the denim detail.
  • Ellery: eye-catching, cascading ruffles are signature to this brand, and I love how they’ve added a little bit of whimsy and elegance to the simple place slip dress here.

Thanks for visiting and hope you’re having a great week so far!
