Nordstrom Fall Fashion Event

A few weeks back I was honored to be invited to a private Fall Fashion Trend event at Nordstrom at Mayfair mall. Who can really say no to shopping and cocktails on a Thursday night?

Department manager Taryn walked the intimate crowd of fellow fashion lovers through the trends for this Fall/Winter season. Some of my favorites trends are listed below with my favorite pieces all from Nordstrom:


As an ex-competition Irish dancer, I can’t help but think of my handmade costumes. Just like the fashion world, Irish dance costumes go through trends and fads. When I was about 9-14 years old, velvet was all the rage. Boy, did those costumes weigh about 50 pounds!

The velvet trend can be anything from shoes, dresses to chokers. It is especially beautiful in the jewel toned colors. If you see velvet, scoop it up for this season.

Motorcycle Jacket

This will never go out of style. When you find a good leather or suede moto jacket, grab it, it will be a seasonal staple. At the Nordstrom event I ordered a faux suede ASTR jacket I had been eyeing up. You will seeing it on repeat this Fall!

Novelty Sweater

Living in Wisconsin, having a large of inventory of sweaters is never a mistake. Pairing a novelty sweater with a scarf and pair of skinnies is my Winter uniform.

Military Moment

If it’s a utility jacket or anything forest green, it will do! I love camo, but I am very particular with my prints. I wore a camo jacket on a plane a few weeks back and was thanked for my service, ha! I consider camo a neutral, either a camo top with jeans or camo jeans with a basic t, you are set!

Wide Leg Pant

Something about the wide leg pant gives every woman that extra sense of femininity. Lengthening the leg and that tailored look is an easy way to dress up any outfit.
