What comes to mind when you think of fringe? Western movies? Gatsby-themed parties? Music festivals? That’s what usually comes to mind for me, personally (plus, it can overall just be tacky…and how many fringe bikinis is it going to take for us to move on to a new swimwear trend?). But then Chanel did this whole Paris meets Dallas thing for their Métiers d’Art show in December and I started to feel a little differently towards fringe…and it seems like other designers are starting to do the same.
Considering it’s felt like Fall in San Francisco, when it’s really Summer in Chicago, my wardrobe has taken an unexpected turn as of late. When I should be wearing shorts and sandals, I’ve ended up in pants and loafers…but at least I have this sweet sequin situation happening that makes up for it all.
Today I’m giving out double the ♥ for CCF Loves and even better? IT’S FOOD THEMED. Let’s meet Executive Chef and Partner at one of Chicago’s top restaurants, Tru, and owner of the most stylish catering company in the city, Elaina Vazquez of Boutique Bites (if you ever see really cute and delicious food at an event…it’s probably hers). Oh and they’re married. I don’t think a bad meal ever happens in this household…
Before we had Instagram to share all of our #fromwhereistands and #ootds, we had Pose. If you’re not familiar with the social site/app, it’s one where you upload your outfit, tag accordingly and others can shop the look. I’ve been using it for about three years now and they’re always coming up with new features, but the latest one happens to be pretty major.
What’s better than the Net-a-Porter sale? NET-A-PORTER CLEARANCE (duh). Every sale season, I try to do something a little more than just sharing my favorite discounted items. So today, we’re going to take a look at the best bang for your buck (including clothing and accessories under $100…hells yes) from the Net-a-Porter clearance sale. Get your wallets ready and clear[ance] the way 😉
