In case you haven't heard, either from us or one of the many exceptional women in your life, it's Women's History Month, the one month a year when women and only women get the spotlight firmly planted on them. To mark the occasion, I plan on spending the rest of the month treating myself to a bit of shopping (shocker), and this year—for once in my life—I have set a few strict guidelines. 

Really, there's just one self-imposed rule on this month's agenda: only shop brands that are owned by women. That way, I can contribute to moving the needle in the fashion industry, where, according to a Business of Fashion survey, only 14% of 50 major fashion brands are run by women, despite them making up the majority of fashion-school enrollments and entry-level fashion positions. That being said, there are still plenty of shockingly good options on the market that stem from the creative and business-savvy minds of women in fashion, with standout designers including Catherine Holstein, Tory Burch, Aurora James, and, of course, the matriarch in all our hearts, Miuccia Prada. 

To further keep my shopping day on track, I chose to zero in on one retailer that I know is stocked full of pieces by women-owned brands. Without further ado, shop the 28 women-owned finds from Nordstrom on my Women's History Month consideration list. After looking them over one last time, I get the feeling they'll be on yours, too.
