IYKYK: 30 Cool, Under-the-Radar Items I Found at Nordstrom

I'm not exaggerating when I say Nordstrom has everything. If I'm ever in a tight spot, I know I can walk into Nordstrom (or head to its online storefront) and find everything I'm looking for. The retailer has expanded into home décor, affordable trends, and exciting emerging designers. And with the addition of its SPACE curation (a section dedicated to emerging and more whimsical brands), I'm browsing Nordstrom more than I'd like to admit. But my constant refreshing of Nordstrom's new arrivals has led me to having a collection of great under-the-radar fashion finds only someone with a lot of time on their hands would know about.

While Nordstrom isn't the retailer that immediately comes to mind when I think about under-the-radar finds, it has so many great things that some items can be easily missed. Take Karine Sultan's glorious hammered jewelry, for example. The brand's square clip-on earrings (the first pick featured in this roundup) are everything I'm looking for in an accessory this season: big, gold, and with a nod to the 80s. I stumbled upon them after browsing Nordstrom's website for over an hour. It's a tough job, but someone has to do it.
