I get asked all the time where my favorite places are in Chicago to shop, eat, stay, etc. and although I’ve done a few versions of city guides here on CCF, I found an even better way to share some of my go-tos with you. Even better? You an shop them RIGHT NOW!
Starting today at 11am ct, Gilt is featuring the first ever Brian Atwood sale on their site! This sale will feature both shoes and handbags (including the one I wore to the Swarovski event) in a variety of colors and styles. Brian is hot, his shoes are awesome so this is one sale you do not want to miss.
Here’s a sneak preview…
Maniac pump (original price $593, Gilt price $299)
Handbags starting at $629
I recently received a lovely package from Skirt PR that I absolutely could not wait to open…
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…
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!
Loving the Brian Atwood clutch on this sweet Swarovski ottoman!
The event was really cool. I love the new windows and let’s be honest…how can you not love being in a store that sparkles?
Very exciting news about one of my favorite shoe designers (who also happens to be ridiculously good looking)–Brian Atwood!
Starting Wednesday, March 28th, Gilt.com will be the exclusive retailer for Brian Atwood’s brand new line of handbags. Gilt will feature 4 main styles from the collection – the Carla, Theodora, Kate and the Iside – and they will continue to be the exclusive retailer throughout the spring season of these gorgeous bags.
