Black and White is Always Right


If you’re looking for an uncontrovertible fact in fashion, it’s that black and white always work, regardless of circumstance or place.  Together, they are chic, timeless, and as close to a sure thing as there is in the ever-changing world of fashion.

And, if you’re looking for another certainty, it’s that if you’re looking for a top-to-toe look, from lipstick to sandals, you can find everything you need at Nordstrom.  From established designers to up-and-comers, from makeup and fragrance, to dresses and jeans, Nordstrom has you covered.



Below I’ve picked just some of my current favorites (many from emerging designers, like Sandro and Maje, who have made my Parisian fashion fantasies a reality).  And I look forward to wearing many of them from here to eternity.

It’s that black and white.
