#NordstromJax: Gala Night

 Hello Fashionistas! As you may already know, yesterday was the Nordstrom Jacksonville Gala. Yes! I'm just now recovering from all the excitement from the previous night. I must warn you, this post is picture intensive so proceed with caution. Enjoy!

This hashtag wall was a huge success. Thanks again to Just Me aghan - a fellow blogger who pointed it out to me. Basically, all night if you shared any of your pics on Instagram and hashtagged #NordstromJax, your pic would be featured. How cool is that!?!

A grand total of $105,000 was raised for local charities (view here).

Spotted: Beth Sullivan, Personal Stylist extraordinaire! Book an appointment with her to update your wardrobe. Be stylish. Stay stylish. Trust me, this lady knows fashion!

Catering by Liz did not disappoint. Everything was refreshing and yummy!


Dress: David's Bridal
Scarf: Gifted
Shoes: Gianni Bini
Bag: KL Kate Landry
Watch: Gifted
Bracelet: Gifted

Flowers were given as you exited the Gala. Nordstrom definitely knows how to treat their patrons. Come out tomorrow, October 10th for the grand opening @ 10AM for your round of applause from the sales team. Get there earlier, for the Beauty Bash @ 8AM for sips and snacks. First 2,000 customers receive a special gift.
