23 Things To Buy At Nordstrom Right Now

by Rachel Nussbaum

Nordstrom — it's a good place! The department store will always hold fond memories for many a fashion and beauty lover. There's nothing like escaping into the counters while your mom shops, spraying on a million perfumes in the hopes in the hopes of finding your ~signature scent at age twelve. But be that as it may, you may be feeling the Nordstrom love extra hard these days, and it's a good thing too, because the brand recently upped their game with a roll-out of new, of the moment brands. With K-beauty picks, natural brands, and mainstay labels, the online shopping experience especially is the best of every world. Think SOKOGlam!, meets Credo Beauty, meets Sephora, meets our dreams.

Moving on, their fashion department has always been solid, and their shoe selection is looking especially appealing recently. There's just something in the air... who could put their finger on it exactly?! Something that makes me want to shop and continue to help Nordstrom stock to grow, it's a very specific urge. Their athleisure also kills it, as does their plus size selection. With the store's consistent high quality and meritocracy stocking, the motto of the moment is definitely "take all our money." Here are 23 things to buy at Nordstrom if you're feeling love for the brand right now.
