It's well known that the holiday season is not only the most wonderful time of the year, but it's also the most hectic and stressful. Amid various events and commitments, it becomes all too easy to forget about the importance of self-care.

Opening Ceremony, the iconic New York-based fashion company launched by Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, is the new featured Pop-In Shop at Nordstrom.

Meadowdale Middle School teacher Tamara Musser knows how the world sees her: “If you walked up to someone in Edmonds’ school district and asked them if they knew me, they’d say no. But if you described me, they’d say yes,” says Musser. The recognition is a result of the special educator’s sensational, at times scandalous (depending on which parent you talk to), high-fashion wardrobe.
