|Apparently handbags were selling well.|
We spent most of our time in Nordstrom, where the sale initially derailed me, and I was lost among shoes and totally didn't see the booze and fashion show going on in Salon Shoes.
Nordstrom was serving pineapple and jalapeno martinis (they were amazing), wine, champagne, appetizers, and all in the company of some amazing shoes.
Cole Haan's new Chelsea pump was being featured, and it was (of course) fabulous. We saw a bunch of different fashions, and had an amazing time figuring out the various types of people who attend events like this.

The girls who obviously dressed with being photographed by a street style blog were also there, obvious as ever in their Litas and delightfully, purposefully mismatched clothing. Secretly I hope none of them were photographed and they wasted their outfits.
Finally there were the socialites. Easy to spot due to the fact that it looks like they took four hours to get ready, and generally wearing something shiny, it's obvious these people have money. And time. Seriously, no one gets that dressed up for a Thursday night out anywhere. And while lame is cool, and I totally love sparkles, when you're starting to look like an extra from a party scene in Miami Vice, you're overdoing it. For a Thursday anyway.
|Latte flavored fabulousness|
Perhaps the most impressive part of the evening though was the fact that I actually didn't buy any shoes. Not necessarily because I didn't want to, but because I'm trying to take stock in my collection and get something really unique that's not like other stuff I own, which is getting harder and harder.
But I did get a Cole Haan cupcake, with the hashtag #DontGoHome. Unfortunately, I had to because the event was over and I'm pretty sure Nordstrom won't let me move in. But if they ever decide to change their mind and keep serving apps, I'm pretty sure they have everything I ever need.
