Get Styled by Joelle at Nordstrom’s Anniversary Sale!

Nordstrom-Anniversary-Sale-It’s time for the BIGGEST sale of the year, guys! Many high-end retailers have major end-of-season sales, but how many have PRE-season sales? If you’ve never experienced Nordstrom’s Anniversary sale, THIS is the year to do it!

Me and the rest of the team at Nordstrom – Streets at Southpoint are ecstatic to assist all customers in the RDU and surrounding areas shop for the best deals on next season’s top trends and styles. We recently got the opportunity to preview and try on the Anniversary Sale merchandise from every department in the store, and I must say, the next few weeks will be filled with “ooo-ing & awe-ing” over fabulous fall leather items, cashmere, handbags, men’s and women’s shoes and more!

You know about the sale, so now what? Why not take it up a notch and book your FREE appointment so that I can help you shop? Just let me know your sizes and what you’re looking for, and I can style you and help you build the perfect fall wardrobe that’s fit for you! This sale will be extremely busy and somewhat chaotic, so booking an appointment will help you navigate and find what you need in a fun and timely way.

Early Access to the sale for Nordstrom cardholders starts this Thursday, the 10th and goes through the 17th. This is typically when a lot of the best merchandise gets purchased! The sale opens to the public on the 18th and goes on through early August, but if you don’t want to wait that long to get your hands on these fall fashion steals, you can come in and open up a Nordstrom Credit or Debit card with me so that you too can gain early access before everyone else.

A Chat with Luxor + Finch’s Jessica Couch

tumblr_mfkdzvcxwm1qiwh7no1_500

logoSpecial interview today, you guys:) Jessica Couch is a friend and fellow designer whom I’ve respected and looked up to since I met her several years ago. She encouraged me to attend the College of Textiles at NCSU, and has since helped me with the hair and styling of my past couple of fashion shows. She’s a multi-talented force that is just beginning to make her mark on the industry, which is why I’m so happy and excited for her new online boutique, Luxor + Finch.

What inspired you to start a boutique of your own?
I love fashion and I was raised in a household where I was taught the importance of ownership and having your own. My parents are lawyers, but they run their own business. Much of my life was spent observing and assisting in the family business. Although I didn’t go down the law route, I did absorb the entrepreneurial spirit. Having a boutique gave me a way to build my dream and a place to put my own products (coming in April/May). Also, I have so many talented friends that I wanted to have a place where they could have their products as well.

What’s the meaning behind the name Luxor + Finch?
I was blessed to take a study abroad trip to Egypt during undergrad. I’d been dying to go to Egypt since I was in the 4th grade, and my teacher, Mrs. Rita Davis, emerged us for the whole year in Egyptian culture. While I was there, I visited the city of Luxor where much of the ruins of massive temples and palaces can still be seen. It was also home to the Nubian civilization that inhabited Egypt. Finch came from me seeing myself as a free spirit. I believe a bird is the best way to symbolize that. Combined, it pays homage to our roots and it reminds us to fly. Two names just felt appropriate since I’m a Gemini and I like two of everything.

What is an item on your site you feel every woman should own?
Right now, every woman should own a rock out pair of leggings. Only because they make every
person who wears them feel like a rock star and all women need to, a some point in their day, feel like a rock star! Now, this summer and fall I will be introducing more merchandise and I don’t want to leak info, but I promise every woman will want at least one of these top-secret garments!

Are you currently looking for more vendors to sell their products on your site?
Yes, I want to feature more independent designers of all kinds. I want people to know that Luxor and Finch is for them as well! I don’t view it so much as competition, but as cross promotion that strengthens the brand. So if anyone is interested in having his or her products on the site, PLEASE
don’t hesitate to email me luxorandfinch@gmail.com!!!
Hopefully you will get us some pieces to sell as well!!

What is your ultimate vision for Luxor + Finch?
My ultimate vision for L+F is to take it internationally as a style guide and online/brick and mortar store that offers the best fitting wardrobe essentials. I hope that as it grows it evolves into its own thing. I treat it like my child, so I have a vision for it but I have a feeling it will create its own. My dreams for L+F go on and on!!!!

Any upcoming events we should know about?
Yes! We will be planning a relaunch in May and it’s going to be awesome! I want people to stay posted because although were in NYC now, we will still be collaborating to have more events in NC. Right now we’re getting adjusted to the city, but once we get things right we’ll have much more up on the site. And if you missed our last event, you missed out!! We’re only going get better!

Well wishes to Jessica and all of her endeavors! Hopefully we’ll collaborate one day!
