Designer discount store Nordstrom Rack opens today at Easton (in Easton Market, the plaza that also includes Dick’s, DSW and others), and it does not disappoint. We got a sneak peek earlier this week, and wow—this place is phenomenal. First of all, it’s the brightest, most light-filled, brilliantly organized Rack I’ve seen (Chicago’s Rack has amazing deals, but it feels cramped and dank; Cleveland’s is even more dark and frustrating to wade through).
Secondly, the product is awesome. Designer denim is everywhere, for men and women alike. The BCBG rack included several items in the $200-$300 range marked down to less than $20. And the shoes… dangerous. (I’m still thinking about a pair of red animal-hair Rag & Bone boots marked from $630 to $299, and an almost equally cute pair of cream suede Sam Edelman booties for less than $100.) Also, the selection of designer sunglasses is stellar. Shopping there? Show us what you scored by posting the picture on Instagram and tagging us at #capstylemag.
