Best of the Fall 2011 Ad Campaigns

The Fall 2011 ad campaigns are out and overall I’m less than impressed. However, there are a few that really stuck out to me and I’m really looking forward to seeing these in all the major fashion magazines this season.

It looks like they’re playing Wii fit or something…in fabulous Lanvin outfits of course.

This is already the most talked about Fall 2011 ad, and I can see why. It’s strangely fabulous.

A little dark for my taste, but I’m obsessed with the glitter pants for Fall…which is why I may or may not have ordered 2 pairs from Moda Operandi :)

The opposite sort of visual from the previous ad, I love the colors shown for M Missoni. I also need to have that handbag…immediately.

Fierce as it’s finest…need I say more?

Chi City Closet: Christopher Kane Aqua Clutch

I have been obsessed with the Christopher Kane aqua clutch since I saw his Fall 2011 collection. It’s like a lava lamp meets childhood toy…which obviously makes for the coolest accessory ever.

So when I found out RSVP Gallery was getting these bags, I of course checked the site every day and tweeted them like crazy. Thankfully my hard work paid off…

A warm welcome to the latest edition to Chi City Closet…the Christopher Kane Aqua Clutch!

Falling For Proenza Schouler

As you already know, I fell for Proenza Schouler a while ago. But since Fall is just around the corner (as least when it comes to fashion), I see myself FALLING for Proenza all over again. Get it? I know…so clever.

After browsing Net-a-Porter the other morning (specifically “what’s new” and more specifically “what’s new–Proenza Schouler”), I’m realizing Fall fashions are approaching FAST. Although we’ve only had warm weather in Chicago for maybe a month now, I still can’t help myself already planning my Fall wardrobe. If money were no object, I would only buy Proenza (especially the looks seen below) but for now I’ll put some money aside in hopes that these “tribal meets stained glass meets Tetris” prints that are so prominent in Proenza Schouler Fall 2011 will one day appear in my closet.

Chi City Closet: The Clean Out (Part 2)

I hope you enjoyed my last Chi City Closet Clean Out post, because I have cleaned out my closet once again! This is probably my favorite clean out because the pieces I have decided to part with are actually really awesome, but they’re those items that I wore once (or never) and haven’t touched in over a year. My rule of thumb is that if it’s been a year and I haven’t worn it, I should probably give it up. So why not give someone else a chance to enjoy them?

Everything below is now up for auction through eDrop-Off. So get your bids in and get a piece of Chi City Closet.

PhotobucketTory Burch Brown Sequin Sleeveless Shift Dress: I wore this to my first formal freshman year of college…and it hasn’t been worn since! 

PhotobucketSee by Chloe Multicolor Print Cinched-Waist Skirt: I bought this in Florence as a 21st birthday present to myself and wore it once when I was abroad. It no longer fits me so I thought I’d give it a new home. It’s an amazing piece and it kills me to give it up but I know someone will love it as much as I did.

PhotobucketRozae Nichols Brown & Black Leather Racer Back Top: Sometimes I buy things I love in a size too big, just because I love it and there’s no other size. I always have the intention of taking it in, but sometimes forget. I’ve had this for 3 years and I’ve never worn it! (check out pictures of the back…it’s the best part)

PhotobucketM Missoni Pink & Yellow Shimmer Stripe Bateau Dress: I bought this last summer and wore it once. I love the colors and the sleeves are super flattering. Perfect for those warm summer days!

PhotobucketM Missoni Navy Shimmer Rib Knit V-Neck LS Dress: An impulse buy at the Gilt warehouse sale, I love this dress but I just couldn’t find the right occasion to wear it. I hope you can though! :)

PhotobucketHaute Hippie Grey Cowl Neck LS Epaulet Dress: I wore this one time, and that was during New York Fashion Week at Althea Harper’s Spring 2011 presentation. I got to meet Althea while wearing that dress so hopefully it will bring you some luck too.

PhotobucketDVF Diane von Furstenberg Multicolor Sleeveless Dress: I actually bought this dress thinking I’d wear it to prom senior year of high school. I ended up going with a different dress, but I’ve had it in my closet ever since. If I’ve never worn it and it’s been in my closet for 5 years , I think it’s about time we part ways.

PhotobucketCynthia Steffe Blue & Black Cap Sleeve Dress NEW: Another impulse buy, I love the color of this dress but it’s a little too form fitting for me. It’s been in my closet for a few months now and I still haven’t taken the tags off! 

Photobucket3.1 Phillip Lim Blue Silk Gathered Front Jodhpur Pants: These are a great transition pant and also perfect for dressing up or down. My favorite way to wear them is with a light cropped sweater and ankle boots for Fall. How will you wear them?

PhotobucketPrada Black Nylon & Rhinestone Monogram Small Handbag: Do they even make nylon Prada bags anymore? One of my first Prada bags, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

PhotobucketKenneth Jay Lane 2pc Blue Lapis & White Flower Ring Set: A 2-for-1 deal…need I say more?

PhotobucketJimmy Choo Cream Snakeskin Leather Kitten Wedges: Ah, my first pair of Jimmy Choos. I love ‘em, but now I don’t wear anything under 4 inches…so they’re all yours!

PhotobucketGiles & Brother Gold & Rhinestone Ice Ring Necklace: I only wore this necklace a few times. It’s cool because it’s versatile enough to wear with a lot of different outfits yet it still adds a fun accent to your look.

PhotobucketDesigner Sterling Silver & Square Cut Aqumarine Ring: Another piece of jewelry worn only a few times (do you see a trend here?) this one is definitely more traditional so you know you’ll get a lot of use out of it.

So what are your favorites? Will you be getting a piece of Chi City Closet?
