This blog began in 2010 as part of the publisher’s promotional materials for my travel book, The Single Girl’s Guide to Meeting European Men. The book rose to #1 on Amazon’s Best-Sellers List within two weeks of publication, and is still selling. The blog has been expanded to cover my other pursuits.

A Fashion Treasure

August, 29, 2014

What happens when Nordstrom unites style with charity? Treasure&Bond! This trendy line, which just launched in 87 stores and online, shares its profits with organizations dedicated to empowering women. I attended the debut and found that one of the hottest spots in the TBD department was the dressing room—where I got to try on the designs. The hard part? Narrowing down my purchases!

Fashion Treasure A

The first piece that I fell in love with was this soft plaid shirt. It looks September stylish. I’m in Seattle right now, and apparently the weather hasn’t caught up with the fact that fall is approaching. Everyone is thrilled. So as the sun was setting, I just threw it on over a pair of shorts that I bought at Nordstom earlier this summer, and headed off to a bonfire party at the beach.

When the clouds gather, I’ll trade my shorts for T&B skinnies in washed denim. This medium blue color has been popular throughout the summer and a Nordstrom stylist told me that it will be a staple this fall.

Then when leaves begin to turn, I’ll keep cozy by layering-on a sweater.

Treasure&Bond mixes feminine pieces with styles borrowed from the boys. The price range – from $28 to $328 –– is budget-friendly, and when wearing this line while you’re looking great you’ll be giving back. Girls Inc., the first organization to benefit from T&B, “empowers girls in the U.S. and Canada to be strong, smart and bold.”

After making my T&B selections, I couldn’t help dancing in them. So I created this 30-second video showing how you can transition from summer to fall with this classic, cool brand. I bet you can guess what song I chose to dance to! Run the World (Girls)…of course!

Here are some other mixable Treasure&Bond fashions guaranteed to update your fall wardrobe.
