The first Nordstrom has opened in Northeast Florida, and it is right here in my hometown of Jacksonville! To celebrate this joyous occasion, Nordstrom hosted a Gala to benefit three local charities: the Junior League of Jacksonville, The Cathedral Arts Project, and Wolfson's Children Hospital. The Gala was simply amazing, the sold out event included the biggest names in Jacksonville and helped raise over $105,000. I was really impressed by the array of designers Nordstrom has brought to the first coast, including Helmut Lang, Vince, and Elizabeth and James just to name a few. This store has with a doubt upped the local shopping ante. In addition to the wonderful food, music, and shopping, it was great to meet other local bloggers as well as the new Nordstrom Jacksonville team. Thank you to Kelly Skahan for allowing me to be included in this fabulous event, and a very special thank you to Theresa Childs for being my one woman camera crew, and the best date to the gala a girl could have. I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday and thank you as always for reading.
