A lot of my stylish colleagues are the kings and queens of shopping for the best basics in the business, and while I certainly can identify a good simple item, it's the more elaborate items that I'm drawn to the most. When asked to describe my personal style, I freeze. While it's certainly always changing, there is one thing that remains the same, and that is how "extra" it is. So I like colored faux-fur and dramatic prints—sue me! Nothing against a well-curated closet of basics, but I would be lying if I said I didn't get a little too much enjoyment out of opening my closet and seeing a small army of feather-adorned pieces hanging all over the place.
If your style is simple, one of these stories linked here might be a better fit, but as for me, my style is extra, and these are the 28 really fun Nordstrom pieces I'm eyeing right now. Sometimes, you just need a festive purchase to lift your spirits, and I can promise you that any of the below items will do just the trick.
