Nordstrom Trend Event: In Pictures

I was going to edit these and do a bunch of commentary… but there are a lot of pictures… and I’ll let them just do the talking. Now, the lighting wasn’t ideal and everything moved pretty fast. But I did my best.

Look at  all these people. OMG. And I got there at a fairly decent time. Seating was a beast… but I managed to find a seat fairly close to the front. Not that it mattered. Everyone and everything was moving so fast…

There was a quick fashion show before the Beauty Director for Nordstrom stepped out…

Then we got on with the business of highlighting some of the bestselling beauty brands… with what’s trending for Spring/Summer 2013…

Dior:

Lancome:

Bobbi Brown:

…and on and on. There were a ton of gifts, giveaways, and more information to whip the crowd into a frenzy with one focus: BUY EVERYTHING! It was infectious. I swear, Dick Page came on the big screen to announce red lips for Spring (Shiseido)… and I was ready to buy 4 tubes of Shiseido red lipstick. Then I had to think about that. Really? Me? Red Lipstick? The person who has about 25 tubes of red lipstick and for some reason I just have to have THIS red lipstick. A mess.
