We got a peek, and it's something to see
Designer discount store Nordstrom Rack opens today at Easton (in Easton Market, the plaza that also includes Dick's, DSW and others), and it does not disappoint. We got a sneak peek earlier this week, and wow-this place is phenomenal. First of all, it's the brightest, most light-filled, brilliantly organized Rack I've seen (Chicago's Rack has amazing deals, but it feels cramped and dank; Cleveland's is even more dark and frustrating to wade through).
Secondly, the product is awesome. Designer denim is everywhere, for men and women alike. The BCBG rack included several items in the $200-$300 range marked down to less than $20. And the shoes… dangerous. (I'm still thinking about a pair of red animal-hair Rag & Bone boots marked from $630 to $299, and an almost equally cute pair of cream suede Sam Edelman booties for less than $100.) Also, the selection of designer sunglasses is stellar. Shopping there? Show us what you scored by posting the picture on Instagram and tagging us at #capstylemag.
