In my last post, I gave a brief intro to all the cool new retail happenings in Center City Philadelphia. This time I’m going to give you a personal tour of the New Nordstrom Rack on Chestnut Street. It’s really nice!
When you first walk in there are handbags, and then something even more near and dear to my heart… makeup. There’s a very interesting mix of high end and low end cosmetics.
I’ve noticed that Nordstrom Rack stores always have a huge display of NYX. It’s worth checking out for older NYX products that can be hard to get on the ground even though NYX will sell them on their website. I also love the Nordstrom Rack cosmetics section because it’s a great way to score beauty bargains. When high end makeup gets discontinued or changes packaging, it will often end up in Nordstrom Rack. I once scored an Urban Decay Primer Potion for eight bucks when the packaging was changed! That’s less than half of what it costs at Sephora!
They even had a deal on the Clarisonic Mia!
They have a really nice selection of jewelry.
I love the clean, modern design of the store.
Moving on to the second level we have shoes and clothes. Check out the draping on this Helmut Lang dress!
I love the vintage feel of these Tory Burch booties… and that color! LOVE!
Yeah… just a wee bit out of my price range. The bordeaux ones are $40 cheaper and would really make a wardrobe statement. Still… I will have to leave you. Will you be cheaper next month? Can you let girl know? You don’t talk? OK.
These BCBGeneration booties are super cute. Love the zipper and buckle detail.
And the price comes back down to earth, too.
The store is right at 17th and Chestnut and next to Sephora. Be sure to check it out if you are in CC Philly!
