My fashionista daughter, AKA Mini MommyBlogExpert, and I had the time of our lives at the awesome shopping spree #RackOpening Tweetup we were invited to attend.  This was a private hosted event just for a small group of fashion bloggers including us last night at the Nordstrom Rack store in Orange, California ahead of the Grand Opening to the public, tomorrow March 1. You can get more details by following us on Twitter @MommyBlogExpert and @OutletsatOrange as well as liking both Nordstrom Rack Orange and MommyBlogExpert on Facebook for more information about the grand opening celebration.

Special Sweets Served to Us Bloggers Matched the Juicy Handbags!

Juicy Couture Bags...
and Juicy Couture Sweat Pants & Jackets
This was a truly memorable evening with Orange Blossom Drinks, fancy sweets, and all kinds of sushi and other appetizers served by waiters while we shopped. Talk about feeling pampered! But, as you might imagine, shopping with a teen girl can still be challenging and downright not fun. At the same time it can also be a real opportunity for you to bond with your big girl.

And bond we did -- with my 14 year-old daughter filling in as my personal shopper and fashion consultant we picked out a stunning dress for me in the official MommyBlogExpert color: spring green. Then my daughter found some really hip separates for herself as well as picked out a skirt and some tops for her triplet sister who had to stay home and study. For sure, we both agree, that the colors and textures are bright and bold this season and you can find them all at the Nordstrom Rack at Orange.

All the photos above and below are just a sampling of all that's currently available at the new store. With the Rack's ample and colorful stock for spring, you'll likely find something to suit everyone's taste in your family. Watch for a separate post soon with the three of us modeling all the gorgeous finds we brought home from this fab shopping spree.

Men's Dress Shirts from Many Popular Designers

I've lived in L.A. many years and am a huge Nordstrom fan. However, this was my first time in a Nordstrom Rack. In case you didn't already know they're an off-price chain offering many well-known and coveted designers including names like Juicy Couture, Marc Jacob, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Coach and many more that we all love.

Tutus for Little Girls in Cheery Colors for Spring
The Nordstrom Rack we shopped has clothes, accessories and shoes for women, men and kids. Truly, we were impressed with the wide selection for teens and women. The men's section -- typically lacking at stores like this that sell designer brands for less -- wowed us too.
