WOW. What a year it has been! I can so vividly remember waking up one year ago today, on International Women’s Day, with a body full of nerves, excitement, anticipation and overall JOY of what was to come that day — the first release of Gibson x LIY at Nordstrom! The entire day was such a surreal moment and I will forever love that it got to all take place on a day that is dedicated to celebrating the strength, wisdom, beauty, power and uniqueness of women. Fast forward to one year later, today, and I get to celebrate the same exact thing, but this time, with 8 other influential powerhouse beauties and the brand who stands behind it all, Gibson, to bring you this F-U-N collection of spring items with one goal behind it – to make you feel even more confident and beautiful in your own skin!
The best part of this collaboration is absolutely the women behind it. I was so excited to get to meet these ladies that you’ll see below and spend time with them in person for a weekend a few weeks ago. The whole time I just kept thinking about how much greater a project can be when you come together with others. This collection is full of personality and each piece you’ll see was designed and selected by the woman wearing it. It was made for everybody and every body. With colors, prints, cuts and styles to compliment every skin tone, body shape and sizes ranging from XXSP – 3XL! We hope that you find something that you love below as every piece was designed with Y-O-U in mind.
One more thing before we dive in – I wanted to mention how grateful I am to work with companies that believe in giving back. Gibson Look gave each influencer involved in the collaboration a flat donation to be made to the organization of our choice. I have chosen Dress for Success as I love that their mission is to empower women to achieve financial independence by providing professional wear and development tools to help women flourish in their career and life. Women helping women – this is a message that I can support and stand behind.
Okay friends, the time has come to reveal it all….introducing the International Women’s Day, available NOW exclusively at Nordstrom!
First up, the Erin Cross Front Tunic! You may remember this fan favorite from our first collection last March – we loved it so much we had to bring it back in new prints! Two color options available, I can’t decide which one I love more! They both radiate joy and speak spring! I love that you can dress it up for work or pair it with jeans for a casual look! Easter called…you may want to answer with this! One thing to note: more units will be available in this piece over the weekend so if you see it sold out tomorrow, come back Saturday / Sunday!
Next up, my second piece in the collection – the Erin Ruched Sleeve Blouse! This cutie comes in 4 colors [2 prints, 2 solids] and is the cutest top for spring and summer! It is fully lined both front and back, has the cutest ruched sleeve detail and again – works so well for the office or a fun day date! I couldn’t he happier with how this piece turned out and believe you’ll absolutely love it! The hardest decision is going to be which color / print to get it in….good luck 😉
Now – onto the other ladies and their pieces!
First up, we have Rebecca in this ADORABLE Dot Ruffle Sleeve Top! This may just be my favorite piece in the collection, I can’t get enough of it. So soft, the detail is perfection and this fabric – SO FUN. She wears it so well!
Rebecca’s other top is another personal favorite, it had me at animal print. This Scalloped Wrap Top is so cute and equally versatile. MEOW.
Ruthie’s other top is this polka split neck top! Wherever you wear this, you’re bound to make a statement!
The details don’t stop there. In her Lace Yoke Split Neck Blouse you’ll find little bits of lace, crepe and eyelet detail.
Halter Neck Twist Tank [true to size]
Next on the list, this Square Neck Blouse which brings a fun silhouette both front and back! Perfect for the office or girls night out!
Can we talk about how Thamarr just GLOWS? I can’t get over her beauty. She was my roomie while in Seattle and her heart is as big as her smile. This top is another favorite in the collection. The ponte fabric is so good but the style is even better. Such a great take on a closet staple [the tie in the back gives it just enough pop!] Ponte Top // Extended Sizes
Continuing the lineup, Thamarr’s Pleated Skirt makes you want to twirl. The print and colors are all sorts of fun and the perfect answer to what to wear to your next spring event!
Pleated Skirt [size up]
Next up, her Tie Front Crepe Top in this beautiful purple floral print. The tie detail helps create an hourglass shape and adds a fun element in the process!

Last but certainly not least, we have Mindy in her Kimono Sleeve Wrap Top. I can’t get over the cut of this top as I think it is SO good. The sleeve length is perfect and the wrap front is super flattering.
That is a women’s day collection wrap! I hope one [or several] of these pieces brings you the same amount of joy that they brought to us! We can’t wait to see you shine! Remember to checkout the entire collection here and hey – happy women’s day. You are amazing.
Founder and creator of LIY, Erin turned her dream of a hobby blog into a full-time career which she now runs alongside the LIY team! When not in front of her computer screen [with a La Croix or wine in hand] or in front of a mirror taking mirror selfies, you can find Erin spending time on the water, cuddled up with her two pups and husband most likely watching the latest Shark Tank episode, or getting lost in an easy beach read.
