Happy Monday, lovelies! Last Thursday I walked the runway together with 14 other Top Chicago bloggers to honor the Lynn Sage Foundation, a research-funding platform founded by sisters Laura and Halee Sage in search of breast cancer cure. The event was hosted by no one else but the fabulous Janet Mandell of Fashionaholic at the Four Seasons Hotel Chicago. The fashion show was a true success – with attendees joining forces for a good cause, and us bloggers showcasing Nicole Miller’s Fall/Winter Collection 2014. The collection itself was to die for; the designer, Nicole Miller, is known for her modern aesthetics (imbued with bright prints and patterns). I wore a grey twill skirt paired with a long sleeve silk top. The skirt is straight off the runway and reflects their Warrior theme for this Fall season. It is a faux-wrap skirt made of stretch silk twill. I was especially fond of the beaded waistband – it’s so elegant, don’t you agree? It contrasts nicely with the print of the skirt for an eclectic and boho-chic feel. The top I wore is made of solid silk and has an elegant drape across the front that creates an ethereal yet sophisticated look (which looked fantastic with the skirt).
As always, thanks so much for reading and a BIG THANK YOU to Janet Mandell of Fashionaholic, as well as Monika Dixon of Monika Dixon PR, and last but not least, Lena of Felinecreatures who is another fabulous Chicago blogger who allowed me to use some her images for today’s post taken by her photographer Jason J. If you want to see all the looks of the Think Pink Event please, visit her website here.
Also a BIG SHOUT OUT to my former Chicago bloggers – you girls all rock! It was a pleasure walking the runway with you!
Happy Friday, dolls! I love collar dresses – they are super feminine and somewhat whimsical, don’t you agree? But this little gem from F21 has some sharpness to it. From the pattern to the collar…it represents some edge while still being feminine. I purchased this dress a year ago while on an innocent stroll into Forever 21 (I call it ‘innocent’ because I always tell my hubs that I just want to look around but somehow always end up with a purchase, oops!). This dress was only $24.80 and I am super happy with it. It fits nicely, and is just the right length for (nearly) 5ft 5inches me. I love it and wore it strolling round Chicago today. This included long walks, another trip into Barney’s to fondle the Celine handbags, a leisurely lunch which coincided with a café latte afterwards! It’s been a good day!
As always, thanks for stopping by & have a fabulous weekend!
Happy Wednesday, darlings! Today I’m keeping things easy with this little black jumpsuit from Marshalls. It truly was a steal (it cost only $19.99!) and let me tell you: This jumpsuit is amazing! I love wearing it to work since I look somewhat pulled together, and yet I’m comfortable at the same time! However, I kept my accessories to the minimum this time to avoid ‘being too busy’. I only added a few simple bracelets, and since my jumpsuit is all one color, I decided to wear a chain belt around the waist to give it some extra character, and to polish off the complete look. What do you think? I would love to hear from you!
As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
Happy Monday, lovelies! Over the weekend I had the pleasure to attend the Simply Stylist Fashion & Beauty Conference in Chicago. It was a fabulous networking event that included a brunch, panels and breakout sessions with top industry experts, shopping, and pampering. During the event, I had the unique opportunity to connect with other fashion bloggers, such as Wendy Nguyen of ‘Wendy’s Lookbook’ (who’s beyond sweet!), and many more FABULOUS bloggers who I adore as well!
Happy Friday, dolls! How lovely is this Zac Posen via Target dress that I’ve purchased back in 2010 (yes, 4 years ago!). I never really got to wear it even though it was one of my most beloved dresses in my closet. It so much fun yet elegant + did you know that the ruffles are completely detachable?! You can either wear it as a skirt or dress (I prefer the dress version, though). This strapless flower-print brocade dress is certainly a keeper and I will make sure to find more occasions to wear it (I wore this dress to a bachelorette party)!
As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!
