If you've ever been to one of Nordstrom's designer preview fashion shows, you know that it's all about being able to touch things you've only seen on Style.com. You won't see anything there that hasn't already set up a web presence, but it's still fun to see them paraded before you in real life. Also, there's usually quite a bit of freely poured wine, and most importantly, those willing and able to shell out for tickets ($125-500), will be contributing to the OHSU Center for Women's Health. Anything you decide to pre-order? Strictly regards your own health.
The show is this evening, 6:30 pm at the Portland Art Museum.
