So when I was getting ready for the Swarovski event Tuesday night, I knew I’d be basing my outfit around this amazing bag. All black. Colorful accessories. But nothing to take away from the clutch. So here it goes…



PhotobucketTop: Kova &  T. Pants: Rag & Bone. Shoes: Proena Schouler. Cuff: Alexis Bittar. Other Bracelets: Stella McCartney, Chan Luu, Dannijo, Nina Nguyen. Rings: Cartier, Dana Rebecca, Avanessi, Gucci.

So off to Swarovski I go! This event was to celebrate the unveiling of an exclusive window installation created by students of the Fashion Body & Garment Master’s Program, mentored by Nick Cave, of the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.


How awesome are the windows?!



It’s not a Chicago fashion event without running into Amy of Chicago Street Style!
