While I’m just as inspired by French style as the next person, it’s the cool polish of Italian style that’s really all I can think about at the moment. While their French counterparts may have minimal and effortless style down pat, Italian women seem to possess a natural glamour about them that I find just as intoxicating, if not more so. Growing up in an Italian American household, I was surrounded by great style at every turn. My grandmother and aunts were always dripping in gold jewelry 24/7, and my interest only magnified after studying in Bologna and getting firsthand immersion. Suffice it to say that Italians’ particular brand of elevated glam has always inspired me.
Since shopping is just what I do, I thought it would be fun to put my knowledge of Italian style to use and imagine the types of fashion items they would put in their carts when shopping on Nordstrom. With their epic Cyber Monday deals in full force, there’s a dizzying number of epic discounts to take advantage of, so if you’re anything like me and want to shop like a chic Roman or Milanese, then you’re in for a treat because the e-tailer is home to tons of Italian style staples right now.
