Ottawa Socialites Gather Over Shoes, Fashion and Business

Stilettos and Martinis, a social club for women who love shoes, martinis and networking, hosted its second event in the Nordstrom shoe department on Thursday, May 21. The series of Stilettos and Martinis events are organized by Bri Anderson-Jackson, photographer and owner of Voulez-Vous Boudoir Photography.

Nordstrom’s Lorella Ciccone (personal stylist manager) demonstrated 2015 summer trends, which included khaki and military details, hippie and floral deluxe, romantic Victorian lace and classic nautical looks.

“This summer is all about transitioning classic and functional pieces into your fall wardrobe” says Ciccone. “Whether you are still sporting white on white after Labour Day, or paring flowy bottoms with a flowy top, this summer is all about breaking rules and extending the wear of your favourite summer clothes.”

Details and patterns were also a major highlight of the presentation that varied from “hard brass buttons and belt buckles to delicate crochet knits and colourful floral prints.”

An exciting shoe competition concluded the evening, where the winner walked away with a gift box filled with $500 worth of Nordstrom beauty products.
