How NORDSTROM Personal Stylists turn a shopping trip into family fun day

How NORDSTROM Personal Stylists turn a shopping trip into family fun day

This style-loving trio loves to mix up streetwear staples—think vintage denim and sporty jerseys

Catherine Cachia and Lionel McDonald are having trouble remembering their first date. Not because it happened so long ago—although it has been over 12 years since they met—but because their courtship built slowly. “We worked together at the Eaton Centre, and Lionel would walk me home, to Bloor and Bathurst, then take the subway to his place in Scarborough,” says Cachia, before she’s interrupted by the cheerful babblings of their two-year-old daughter, Winnie. Parenthood hasn’t really changed their approach to style: “We get dressed way faster than before,” says McDonald. Cachia recently quit her day job to pursue family photography and lettering art as a small business. She favours vintage and menswear, occasionally raiding her husband’s closet. McDonald is inspired by sportswear and music: “I’m into ’90s hip hop,” he says. “East Coast, definitely.” He also has an incredible sneaker collection. “I love Jordans,” he says. Before he can get into the details, Winnie interrupts him. She wants to say hello.

To celebrate the new NORDSTROM opening at CF Sherway Gardens, we partnered Lionel, Catherine and Winnie with a NORDSTROM Personal Stylist. They found great streetwear staples, including a Citizens of Humanity denim jacket ($524) layered over a Vince tee ($135) for Lionel; Madewell culottes ($83) and Ted Baker London sandals ($250) for Catherine; and a darling white eyelet top, from Tucker + Tate, for Winnie.
