the past is the past.

ever since i moved to the west coast, i never really got the whole nordstrom's thing. the clothes were too serious & i was always bored in the store so i stopped going there altogether. the catalogs continued to arrive & i would have fresh hope, but the clothes were still too serious, even on models with lots of hair flinging around in fake wind.

recently, things started to get a little more interesting in the nordstrom catalog. their latest catalog, august 2008, has pages of things i love.

nordstrom's has moved on.

good for them.

here are some of the things i would buy if i had $eleventy thousand.
