Just in case you did not know, Nordstrom opened its doors in Ottawa couple days ago. Okey this is a big deal because Ottawa is the second Canadian city to have a Nordstrom- the first being Calgary. I could not go on the opening day, but i went to check it out yesterday before heading to grab sushi with a friend and let me tell you… Ouuuuuh let me tell you this store is the bidness. For all of all of us who were not quite satisfied with the shopping experience in Ottawa, we can complain no more.
The makeup department is massive and the store also offers some designers brands like Jimmy Choo, Valentino, Manolo Blahnik and Alexander Wang among many others. Furthermore, among the upscale services, there’s an on-site tailor shop, personal stylists, a coffee bar on the first floor and a full service restaurant on the second. This place is just beautiful and the employees are very nice and attentive to the customers, which in my opinion, is always essentiel for a fun shopping experience.
I did not shop much since i was running late to go meet my friend, but i made sure to grab couple things. I bought the new Nars all day luminous weightless foundation and Nars eye paint in black. I also wanted to buy the Chantecaile future skin gel foundation, but since they were sold out in my shade i grabbed a sample instead.
I wore a very simple all black outfit. I was going for an effortless yet sophisticated look and my Sergio Rossi boots made my vision come alive. They really are my favorite boots at the moment. They literally took my outfit from casual to sexy in the blink of an eye.
Make sure to check out Nordstrom when you can because you really wont regret it. I believe Nordstrom has really presented remarkable elegance, glamour, diversity and style to the city. I sure cannot wait to go spoil myself some more.
