Nordstrom x Rag & Bone Pop-In Shop

Nordstrom x Rag & Bone

Nordstrom x Rag & Bone

Nordstrom has been opening “pop-in shops” for awhile now which feature specially curated items that conform to a theme.  Previous pop-in shop themes have featured quirky items from a variety of brands.  I believe this is the first one that features a specific designer and it will be Rag & Bone.  It opens August 8th and runs through September 7th.

The advert says it will be a curated assortment of the Fall 2014 men’s and women’s collections and that it will feature some Nordstrom exclusives and some limited-edition collectibles.  I noticed that Rag & Bone items were all super popular during the Anniversary Sale and sold out quickly, so I wouldn’t be surprised to see the same thing happen with this pop-in shop.

I will post details as soon as I get them myself! :)

Styling My Family for Professional Photos

Anthropologie Rosado Sheath

My husband and I have decided that we will do family photos every so often now that we have a baby.  Since it is quite an investment in both time and money to have professional portraits taken, I like to plan out what we are all going to wear so that we look stylish and coordinated.

I found this dress on Anthropologie and I *love* how it looks on me.  I think the colors are beautiful and the cut is very flattering. I purchased it in petites and it seems to be the perfect length for my 5’0 tall frame.  Now that I have my dress, I need to figure out what to dress my husband and daughter in.

I was thinking I might put my daughter in the Little Me dress I got her at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I think the Navy color will look good against my dress, but I’m wondering if she will stand out enough? I want her to be the center of attention, not me.  I am wondering if the white and pink colorblocking will help enough?  Hmm…

I also have to figure out what to put my husband in.  I love the way Calvin Klein slim shirts look on him.  We bought him some roll-cuff ones last year and he wore those in our photos.  He suggested wearing the same one again but I think we actually need a dark blue one.

I am thinking something like this, but in a dark blue. I couldn’t find any on the Macys.com site but I am sure if I go into the store they will have something.  As an added bonus, Macys is having a Men’s private sale in store starting Thursday with 25% off your purchase of over $100.  I am wondering if coupons will stack on top of this deal.  Macy’s doesn’t usually let you use 2 coupons, but I will ask if the 25% off the total purchase counts as a coupon or not.
