Nordstrom, Savvy, 1eThis week, Nordstrom unveiled a fresh new look for Savvy and we’re giving you an exclusive sneak peek of what’s in store at the Scottsdale Nordstrom ! The Savvy department has a new focus and it’s all about the latest trends, rather than specific brands.

“Our Savvy buyers will strictly focus on all the latest trends,” explains Taylor Rosenthal, Savvy’s new department manager at the Scottsdale store. “So everything you see is always fresh; we’re not re-ordering items. Once they’re sold, they’re gone for good and we’ll constantly have new merchandise for the Savvy girl.”

The average price point in the new Savvy is an affordable $52. What you’ll find right now is lots of new Spring items, particularly Coachella-inspired Boho styles – one of Nordstrom’s biggest spring trends.

I seriously love these matte cuff bracelets and need them in every color…
