Designer Spotlight: Sandro

If you’re familiar at all with Sandro you may know that the brand has been around for quite some time (since 1984 to be exact) so you may be thinking to yourself…why would Jena be spotlighting a designer that’s been around for nearly 30 years? Well because as much as I like to stay on top of all things fashion, I clearly missed something and only knew about Sandro within the last 3 years or so. And after spending some time in Paris recently (and by recently I mean just last week) the word SANDRO has been drilled into my head. And today, we’re going to talk about it.

Samantha Sleeper in Chicago

If you’ve never heard of Samantha Sleeper, I suggest you pay attention (and if you have then you’re going to be really excited about what I have to say). The talented designer (who happens to be a fellow North Shore fashion enthusiast) now resides in New York BUT she’s bringing something very special to Chicago.

Food Pairings: Schwa + Jeremy Scott

After being at the top of my “restaurants to try in Chicago” list or over 2 years now (this list is constantly growing by the way), I finally got to dine at Schwa. You have no idea how excited I get to cross a restaurant off this list (well technically just remove it from the notes section of my iPhone) but this one was especially thrilling.

Currently Obsessing Over: Clover Canyon

I’ve been obsessing over Clover Canyon ever since their prints caught my eye one day browsing “what’s new” on Net-a-Porter (which is where I make most of my life-changing discoveries).
