The Versatile Computer Sleeve

I always enjoy tech accessories that do more than just protect my technology (re: Proenza iPad case, but should totally be a clutch). So what happens when a local designer (who I happen to adore) makes neon computer sleeves?

Ford “It” Girl: Noel

With Dominique, it was all about those eyebrows and now it’s time to obsess over Noel with those killer LIPS. This girl is insanely gorgeous (sometimes I just can’t even look at these photos because she’s too pretty). And as an added bonus? She has a stunning sister (who you’ll see next week in the last installment of my Ford editorials).

Chi City Closet: Latch Collection Bracelet

I think it’s obvious by now that I have a sick obsession with neon. Mix that with a local designer who creates handmade bright and fun bracelets? It’s Latch Collection by Laura Jastram…how can you not love it.

When it comes to jewelry, I love to layer. The more the merrier, right? This piece is a statement on its own, but it’s still fun to mix it up and wear with my watch and a few other simpler bracelets.

Latch Collection bracelets also make a great gift for the holidays. Who wouldn’t want a neon addition to their arm party? Visit Latch Collection on Etsy for more info.

Chi City Closet: Supertrash Daimy Dress

I normally don’t wear collared tops and dresses, but when I came across this blue Daimy dress by Supertrash, I was intrigued. Maybe it’s because the color is awesome, maybe because the shirtdress trend has gotten to me…either way, this is the latest addition to the Chi City Closet, thanks to Supertrash.

Born in LA and raised in Amsterdam, Supertrash embraces the laid-back West Coast lifestyle while incorporating a sophisticated European twist. Founded by socialite Ava Riley, the brand was really brought to life when Dutch fashion entrepreneur Olcay Gulsen came into the business. In 2009 Olcay took over and now Supertrash is sold in over 1,000 boutiques and department stores worldwide. I can see why…because it’s stylish, affordable, and all around AWESOME.

So how do I make this shirtdress more my style? I add neon and Proenza of course. After all…isn’t that what I’m all about? :)

Resort 2012: Neon Scuba

I normally don’t freak out over the “inbetween collections” (meaning Resort & Pre-Fall) like I do for the “main attractions” (Spring and Fall). For some reason though, this particular Resort season has really blown me away. It didn’t hit me at first, but then I really studied the collections and realized a major trend.

Chloe Sevigny for Opening Ceremony

Many of you are probably thinking, “why would I ever want to wear neon scuba?” Well…why not? Neon is awesome. Although space is limited for a Twitter bio, I made sure to include “it shouldn’t be on if it isn’t neon” in mine. And as for scuba…what better says RESORT than SCUBA?

Unfortunately, neon flippers are not included…
