Being from Seattle, I will always be a Nordstrom girl. Besides being the best department store in all the land, they also know how to throw a party. Their second location in Minnesota opened up this week, and I was graciously invited to celebrate at their grand opening gala at Ridgedale Mall in the western suburbs of Minneapolis. I was glad to have somewhere to take this stellar Coach piece out for a spin! I've decided that actually dressing up for the occasional event here and there has made my life slightly more interesting, so I went all out. My sister and I had a great time exploring and eating our way through the beautiful store. Loved the live music by Sean Jones and delicious hors d'oeuvres by D'Amicos! Congratulations to Nordstrom on the opening!
