APPAREL BUYING GUIDE // Atlantic-Pacific Collection

At your request I am talking through the apparel in the collection in to preparation for tomorrow’s launch! The collection will go live at 9am EST on nordstrom.com and will be sold in 36 stores (note not all stores will have the full assortment/size run). The collection will follow general Halogen sizing, but I am noting below the styles that were intended to have a more tailored fit as well as those intended to have a larger or more relaxed fit.

For your reference I am 5’7 and wear a size 0/XS in all of the below pieces. I typically wear a size 0 in J.Crew, Size 4 in Topshop, Size 4 in ASOS and size 25 in most contemporary denim brands. As an FYI, Halogen generally runs slightly larger than brands such as Topshop and ASOS! Hopefully this information, the pricing, and all of the product details below will help you shop with a bit more ease. Any questions please send my way in the comments!

I’m so excited about this launch and want to thank everyone for their support. As a reminder, I will be in L.A. next week hosting a fun event at the Nordstrom Local on Melrose. The event will be from 5:30-7:30pm on Wednesday, 10/24. For those of you in L.A., I hope to see you there!

THE MIDI COAT // $249 // This coat is one of my favorite pieces in the collection. It has a more tailored fit at the shoulders and waist and is longer in length. While it runs true to size, it is purposely cut tighter to the body, so you may want to consider sizing up if you are planning on wearing bulky sweaters or multiple layers underneath! The sweaters in the line that have more fitted sleeves, such as the solid lurex and striped turtleneck (both pictured above and more details below), pair so well with this gorgeous coat! You can see it styled both here and here.

BLACK POLKA DOT SKIRT // $129 // With a slightly longer length, this style is perfect for all your holiday occasions this season. It works equally well with a belted blazer as it does with a sweater! See it worn here.

PINK LAYERED TULLE SKIRT // $99 // The perfect statement skirt for dressing up or down! This skirt features an elastic waistband, is slightly shorter than the black dot skirt, and runs very true to size! I’ve been styling this skirt with absolutely everything! See it worn here.

SLIPS // $49 (dot) $59 (tulle) // We created a few slips within the collection to give the option of adding additional volume to the midi skirts. In each post I have done so far, I have been wearing one of these slips to give just a little more wow to the look!

THE STRIPE TURTLENECK // $79 // This extremely cozy sweater was designed to be more fitted in the sleeves but have an easier body – i.e. perfect for layering beneath coats! If you are looking to go more fitted I would size down, but please note that this sweater isn’t intended to be truly fitted, but rather to have more of a relaxed look in the body. For your reference, in all of the styling posts where I have featured this piece, I am wearing an XS, which is my typical sweater size! See it worn here.

THE BLACK PANTS // $99 (wide leg) $89 (ankle pant) // The sailor pants are high waisted, with a wide leg, and run true to size! The paperbag pant is cut to hit at the low ankle and designed to sit at the true waist.

THE STRIPE LUREX SWEATER // $59 // Also available in solids (pink, blue, and black)! This is the most fitted sweater in the collection, and intended to have a tight fit that is perfect for tucking into the skirts in the collection or simply wearing untucked back to denim. The navy grounded multi is my favorite and is the piece I have been wearing the most of late!

THE TIE FRONT SWEATER // $149 // The content of this sweater is 70% wool, 30% cashmere – a super cozy blend! This sweater is a more voluminous fit but the tie allows you to create more definition at the waistline. The black is perfect for casual holiday occasions!

PLEATED COLORBLOCK DRESS & SKIRT // $149 (dress) $99 (skirt) // These colorblock pieces have the perfect pop of fall color. Cut back to navy and to black respectively, they pair easily back to all the neutrals in your closet. The skirt has an elastic waistband and the dress is designed with a back zip – both styles fit true to size! You can see them worn here.

Atlantic-Pacific x Halogen
THE BOW LACE DRESS // $159 // This details of this dress are to die for. The wider cuff with pearl buttons, velvet bows at front, and lux lace make this an incredible value. I have paired this dress back to the black wide belt in the collection and plaid midi coat.

THE BOW FRONT BLOUSE // $89 // Easily my favorite piece in the collection, this top is everything I want in an item! Both the dress and top have a faux front placket and a back zip that give them a bit more ease, and FYI both are true to size!

Blair Eadie Collection Nordstrom


PLEATED PRINTED SKIRTS // $99 // These easy to pull on skirts are done in the prints of the collection. The sweep on this skirt is quite full, giving it lots of movement, and the waistband construction creates a great little ruffle at the top. If you are looking to add some print to your fall wardrobe this is such an easy way to do it! See it worn here.

THE PJ BLOUSE // $79 // This blouse is offered in two prints as well as a solid black! The top has a sweet peter pan collar, hidden placket, and white pipping throughout. It is meant to be a slightly more relaxed fit and a longer length – perfect for pairing back to skinny jeans!

PEARL BUTTON FLORAL DRESS // $129 // This dress is the shortest length dress in the collection. Hitting above the knee, this dark floral number is great with a pair of pumps or with OTK boots!

THE WRAP BLOUSE // $79 // I would consider this blouse one of the staples in the collection. Slightly longer in the back, this faux wrap top is the perfect weekend top with jeans and riding boots!

THE TEDDY COAT // $249 // This is the most oversized coat in the collection and is meant to be a more voluminous style. This coat was designed with layering in mind, so you can wear bulky sweaters, and in some cases even another jacket under – you know I love a double coat situation! The faux fur is ultra soft and I love the oversized pockets.

THE POLO SWEATER // $69 // Similar to the lurex stripe sweater and lurex sweater, this style is fitted and was styled tucked back to many pieces in the collection. It has a wide rib and includes lurex tipping at the sleeves and placket as well as pearl buttons for a feminine touches.

THE SOLID LUREX SWEATER // $59 // This sweater, like the lurex stripe, is a more fitted lightweight sweater. I have been loving the touch of lurex throughout this style – especially in black as the perfect anything but boring holiday staple. This may be your layering go-to this season!

THE FAUX FUR TRIM TWEED JACKET // $199 // Made from a beautiful rainbow tweed, this cropped coat is beautiful, yet wearable. The faux fur trims on both the cuffs and the collar are removable, making it a great transition piece from fall into the winter season.

THE LACE TRENCH // $199 // Matching the lace in the bow dress, this trench is a twist on a fall classic. A dark navy with black piping, this piece is easy to mix and match with your neutral shoes and accessories.

THE BLACK BOW JACKET // $169 // While I love the rainbow tweed, I also wanted a more everyday tweed coat in the collection. This cardigan style jacket with a cute chiffon bow is frequently paired back the black polka dot skirt, but is also the perfect fit back to denim. Note: this style is cut a bit more boxy and isn’t meant to be a fitted piece!

CASHMERE BLEND BLOUSON SLEEVE SWEATER // $189 // We have a wide array of sweaters in the collection, and this one is by far the most feminine. All of the details were considered, from the pearl button shoulder details, to the wider rib, to the cashmere blend to the blouson sleeve. It is fitted through the body but the sleeves are purposefully more voluminous to crease a blouson!

THE BUTTON BLAZER // $169 // At the Chicago pre-shop event there were quite a few styles that flew out quickly and this blazer was one of them. Done in a thicker fabrication this style feels more like outerwear than a typical blazer.

THE CABLE CREW // $79 // This cable crew is a bit more relaxed and slightly longer length than you may find in a more traditional cable crew sweater. The lilac is my favorite hue, but all the colors pair so well back to the woven PJ top in the collection.

THE LUREX DOT SWEATER // $79 // More dots please! We created this lurex dot sweater to be worn with the polka dot skirt, but it honestly goes with so many items in the collection (I love how so many women in Chicago paired it with the paperbag pant)! This sweater is slightly more fitted with a bracelet length sleeve.

THE BLAZER // $149 // I styled this blazer as a suiting piece as well as wore this blazer alone back to denim, colored pants and even the tulle skirts. This blazer is a boyfriend fit and is meant to be a more relaxed, longer length! See it styled here.

THE CROPPED TROUSERS // $99 // Similar to the blazer these mid rise trousers were fit with a wider leg and meant to hit at the ankle. The length is perfect as these can be worn back to pumps, booties or of course the oxfords in the collection. See it styled here.

THE METAL BUTTON SKIRT // $89 // Matching the button detailing of the blazer, this pencil skirt is most fitted skirt option within the collection.

THE FIT AND FLARE DRESS // $139 // An easy knit dress that is comfortable and can be styled for a night out! We created this style in a thicker ponte fabrication and added seaming details and pearl touches to really elevate the style and create an anything-but-boring knit dress that can be worn into the holiday season!

RAINBOW TWEED DRESS // $149 // Rainbow tweed, pearl buttons and eyelash fringe… all the makings of a fun, fall dress! The multi colored tweed allows you to mix and match with so many colors, but if you are more of a matchy-matchy girl like me pair this frock back to the tweed flats seen here!

**PS see the accessories buying guide here and footwear will be published later today!

ACCESSORIES BUYING GUIDE // Atlantic-Pacific Collection

Many of you requested to see a ‘buying guide’ with prices and product details prior to the collection launching. Well, here you go! As a reminder, the collection will be live at 9am EST on 10/22 at Nordstrom.com and in select Nordstrom stores – you can read more details about the collection here. Today, I am kicking things off with the accessories buying guide, and tomorrow will follow up with apparel and footwear.

THE REVERSIBLE SCARF // $45 (pink) $49 (plaid) // This style is oversized, incredible cozy, and pairs perfectly back to all of the outerwear in the collection. This piece is available in a double-sided blue and light blue plaid option, and a pale pink and blush solid option.

THE WIDE BELT // $39 // Belts are back! This season I have been belting EVERYTHING and this style is a closet all-star in the making. This wider belt with a square buckle features an elasticized band on the back giving it the ability to stretch and be re-sized to wear over or under your favorite items. Lately, one of my moves has been belting my bulky outerwear to create a new streamlined silhouette.

THE COLOR-BLOCKED CASHMERE SCARF // $199 // Under $200 for an oversized 100% cashmere scarf is a total steal. It’s also a true investment piece you can hang onto season after season. The color combination is one of my favorites in the collection and is surprisingly versatile. As seen above, I love how the colors look back to a rich tan, and the angled cut of the scarf provides a beautiful drape that isn’t always achievable with other oversized scarves. This scarf has become my new travel companion and makes for a truly incredible gift.

THE CASHMERE BEANIE // $55 // Another 100% cashmere style (minus the faux fur pom) within the collection! This chunky piece is just so comfy-cozy. We decided to create this beanie in these two super feminine colors to match back to nearly everything. I am so excited to wear them all season long!

THE LEATHER CASHMERE LINED GLOVES // $99 // Come cooler temperatures, I am never not wearing gloves. I love how classic this style feels, and we added just a touch of trend with a lavender color offering. These gloves are slim enough to fold over once and keep neatly inside nearly any small bag. Did I mention these are cashmere lined?

FAUX FUR COLOR-BLOCKED WRAP // $89 // A glamorous and functional alternative to the blanket scarf, these faux fur stoles are incredible. The faux fur fabric is the softest of its kind that I have ever felt, and the color combinations we created match perfectly back to so many of the apparel items in the collection. A new alternative to a typical scarf! This style features an easy hidden slit and you can slide one end through the other and wear it securely.

FAUX FUR STOLE // $49 // A simple way to add a bit of warmth to a dressy outfit on a night out, or a modern way to make an old coat feel new. Simply throw one of these pieces over your shoulders to create a brand new look! This style has a great front hook and eye closure – so you can simply throw it on or secure it to fit snug around your neck.

THE SKINNY SILK SCARF // $49 // These adorable scarves are 100% silk and add the perfect hit of color or print to your bag, your ponytail, or around your neck! We designed the floral print to be paired back to BOTH black and brown, and it has been adorning a different bag in my closet nearly every other day. The beautiful blue and pink combinations are polka dot jacquard, a sweet and subtle detail that I love!


COLORED TIGHTS // $15 // I have said it again and again – colored tights are the coolest, easiest, and cheapest way to transform a look. We have four incredible shades in the collection that I have been wearing ever since the temps have dipped. While I am a bit more daring and will wear these with a mini skirt and boots, they are also great to throw under cropped denim or pants for extra warmth – and to add just a *touch* of color! Not feeling for tights? We also have lurex ankle socks – available in pink, blue, and orange – for just $10 – perfect back to the flatform oxfords or bow pumps in the collection!

BERETS // $39 (black pearl) $49 (cashmere cable) // Berets were a huge trend last season and I wanted to take them in a different direction by adding texture to the knit and featuring pearl detailing on a solid black. The pink and ivory cable berets are 100% cashmere while the black is a wool blend. Expect to see the pearl beanie quite a bit around here in future posts on Atlantic-Pacific ;).

ATLANTIC-PACIFIC COLLECTION // COLORS TO CONSIDER

I am always trying to think of new color combinations to wear and fun ways to mix and match pieces. Over the past two weeks, with the hope of showing versatility and providing styling inspiration, I have been showcasing lots of different ways to wear (and re-wear) the pieces within the Atlantic-Pacific X Halogen collection (available 10/22 – SO SOON!). Below I re-thinking new ways to wear color with the pieces from the collection – you can also check out a recent color combinations post here for additional hue mixing ideas! Some of the looks are heavily weighted with pieces from my collection, while with others, I’ve dipped into my closet to mix and match back to items I already own.

Also, I will be publishing a more comprehensive guide to the collection that will include fit info, pricing, and a few other requests that you had for me. Don’t worry, I’ll release this well prior to the 9am EST launch on Monday so you’ll have plenty of time to prepare for the launch! Thank you so much for all of the support so far, it’s been such an amazing journey!

LILAC AND PLAID (not a color, very aware) // This fall I’ve loved incorporating lilac into my wardrobe and am obsessed with this more unexpected combination of plaid and lilac! This menswear inspired suiting is almost begging for a more feminine element, and this lilac top and lilac sweater felt like the perfect items to take the suit in a different direction. You can also see how I broke this suit apart and paired the blazer with a skirt here!

GREEN AND PINK // Green and pink has been one of my favorite color combinations this season and here I’ve paired the pink bow blouse and pink oxfords from the collection with some mean green pieces from my closet. The pink blouse was originally styled with the tulle skirt (see here), but it is far from a one-trick pony. It looks great with denim, high waisted dress pants, or even with a more simple skirt. While I am wearing it above with green, and with head-to-toe pink here, it also works equally well with more a traditional navy or black!

NAVY AND ORANGE // I am loving the navy suit re-imagined with a pop of orange. The multi-stripe sweater is incredibly comfy, has hit of lurex for just a bit of shine, and has an amazing tailored fit (one of the tighter sweaters in the collection) – making it perfect to wear under a blazer. The multi-stripe layout allows for mixing and matching in so many different ways and with an array of colors. As an example, here I’ve added orange tights, an orange coat, and my pink Chanel bag to play up the colors in the stripes and make the whole outfit POP!
