In case you’ve been living under a rock, Nordstrom is bringing their A-game, or should I say, their “A-P game” with their latest collaboration – Halogen x Atlantic-Pacific. Get ready for a colorful, curated collection created by the inimitable blogger, Blair Eadie. Today, I’m beyond honored to be partnering with Nordstrom to be one of the first to preview the Halogen Atlantic-Pacific collection.
Chicago friends – mark your calendars! Blair will be hosting a special shopping event and personal appearance at Nordstrom Michigan Avenue. Best of all, you can shop the collection before anyone else! The event is tomorrow, Wednesday, October 17th from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. The event is exclusive to Nordstrom Rewards members, but don’t worry, the program is free! Interested in joining? You can find more details here.
With less than a week before the launch, it’s time to make your list and check it twice! Here are more details about the Halogen Atlantic-Pacific collaboration.
What is Atlantic-Pacific?
No, I’m not referring to a transcontinental flight, lol! Atlantic-Pacific is the brainchild of Blair Eadie. Since 2010, Eadie has been documenting her personal style on her blog. After sharpening her fashion chops at Gap, Inc. and Tory Burch, she recently decided to take her blog full-time. Given that she now has a capsule collection with Nordstrom, she definitely made the right career decision!
When Does the Halogen Atlantic-Pacific Collection Launch?
Set your alarms! The line officially launches on October 22 at 9:00 AM EST on Nordstrom.com. As with most of the recent Nordstrom collaboration debuts, expect many of the pieces to sell quickly. After having the chance to see most of the collection in-person (and try them on during this photo shoot), I can attest this collab is not to be missed! There are more than 150 pieces, which will be sold both online and in stores.
While I was in New York City for work earlier this month, I was able to attend the collection preview. As expected, all of the pieces looked even more amazing in person.

Sizing for the Halogen Atlantic-Pacific Collection
Last week, Nordstrom sent me a few samples to style and I absolutely loved every single piece! The quality and construction are amazing, and I’m already predicting the capsule collection will sell out quickly. Almost everything will be in sizes 00-24 and some petite sizes will be available as well. Best of all, Nordstrom Rewards members can take advantage of in-store tailoring. I found the plaid coat, the lace dress, the pleated color block dress, and the floral top to all fit true to size. The plaid coat is a cut to fit close to the body, so if you plan to wear bulky sweaters underneath, I suggest sizing up.
Additionally, the wide-leg sailor pant fits true to size, but if you’re in between sizes, I recommend going up one size due to the higher than average waistline. Also, I’m not sure if this pant will be made in petite sizing, but if they are, you better believe my 5’4″ frame will be going that route!
Styling the Halogen Atlantic-Pacific Capsule Collection
As Blair shared on her blog, her goal was to create a collection of pieces that are easy to mix and match. Best of all, the color palettes she chose will work perfectly with items you already own! I’ve already made a shopping list of items for the launch. Lastly, be sure to take a peek at my recent post to find links to my favorite 46 items from the collection!

While Eadie claims there are no plans for another Atlantic-Pacific collection in the future, she’s certainly a stiletto step in the right direction. I have no doubt her future is bright, and this won’t be the last time we’ll see a clothing line from Blair!
My sincere congrats to Nordstrom, Halogen and Blair Eadie on the partnership, and thank you for entrusting me to help preview the must-shop collection.
