Westfield Annapolis: Get the Look from Variety Studios Installation

To celebrate Awards Season this year, Westfield partnered with Variety to bring the hottest red carpet looks to local Westfield centers around the U.S.

Through this exclusive fashion partnership, top Westfield retailers including Nordstrom, Macys and Anthropologie curated celebrity looks from Hollywood so shoppers can also get the look of their favorite celebrities for less!

I was invited (as a media outlet) to visit Westfield, Annapolis Mall and re-create one of the installation looks.  This was exciting because the campaign included a few of my favorite retailers.


My individual style would be described as poised and polished.  I like tailored lines with a hint of femininity through ruffles, patterns, and fabric textures.  My style icons vary (depending on the mood) but are primarily Michelle Obama, Eva Longoria, with a hint of Kourtney Kardashian.

I started my shopping journey (for the campaign) at Nordstrom where I found a beautiful array of formal gowns.  The store did not disappoint fashionable customers by providing lace, sequins, and floral dresses.  In support of the campaign, I also discovered a Vince Camuto visual display showcasing a monochromatic shift dress, slacks, and tote bag.

After leaving Nordstrom, I walked over to Lord and Taylor.  If you’re searching for a Little Black Dress, they have it here!  The campaign celebrated Satires Ronan’s fashion style and her LBD through the installation display.

 I concluded my shopping adventure by visiting Macys women’s department.  From there, I was able to create a look that suits my personal style.


I purchased a Thalia Sodi Solid Scuba Blazer and Pencil Skirt.  This set looked amazing due to the jacket’s stand collar, open front, and leopard-print lining.  The skirt enhanced my body type along with subtle cut-outs at the hem-line.  I can’t wait to share my style photo on the site!
