One thing that often crosses my mind when perusing my favorites online stores, is that some stylish someone or team came together to create that very shopping experience. The art of buying and putting together a great selection of product seems exciting and overwhelming all at once. Not to mention the great insight you get into what’s popular, plus getting first dibs on the best of the best to hit the site. One such person behind-the-scenes is Nordstrom’s national beauty director, Autumne West.

West has worked at Nordstrom for 18 years and graciously gave us a glimpse at some of her top fashion and beauty products from the major retailer. From sleek blazers and timeless shoes to incredibly effective skincare and standout make up selects, we can’t help but want every last piece—many can be worn forever. Ahead, shop West’s stylish picks, plus a few extras we have our eye on as well.

Fashion Picks

I love to play with fashion trends—my current obsession is Valentino Hot Pink. But like beauty, I will always have my classic go-tos. These are my personal fashion staples I can’t live without.

Beauty Picks

When it comes to beauty, I’ll vouch for the tried-and-true classics but I also love to experiment with newness. In my years within the industry one thing remains the same, I love discovering new products and having fun with beauty.
