It’s Official, I’m a Keeper

 

keep feature

Now that my much needed blogging vacay is over, it’s time to ring in the New Year with my first feature of 2014 and my latest addiction. Keep reading and you’ll find out how they’re one in the same.

A few months ago, I was introduced to a site (and app) by the name of Keep.com. I signed up then, but was relatively inactive until Christmas rolled around. Known as the shopping version of Pinterest, I figured it would be the best way to compile my wishlist for those looking to gift me something for the holidays (hubby actually relied heavily on my “All I Want For Christmas Is…” collection for ideas).

Needless to say, when Keep asked if they could feature me in their Guest Stylist series, it was a no brainer. The only problem is, I had to curate a collection of at least 50 items I was currently lusting after. Who knew that would be so hard? Of course anyone could go on one site (i.e. ASOS, Net-A-Porter) and find 50 things they wouldn’t mind being delivered to their doorstep. However, the pressure (in my mind) was on, to create the most interesting and visually pleasing collection possible. I mean, I was following in the footsteps of magazine editors, television personalities and renowned bloggers. It was time to step my virtual shopping game up!

#DaChiTownGifter with Henry & Belle

 

‘Tis the season for giving! And in the blogging community, that means giveaways. #DaChiTownGifter is ChiTown Fashionista’s holiday giveaway series, featuring the best designers and brands Chicago has to offer.  Whether you enter for yourself or a loved one, we guarantee these goods and services will be worn/cherished/remembered for years to come.

henry and belle

What better way to kickoff #DaChiTownGifter series than with a brand that has a storied history in Chicago. Henry & Belle‘s roots reach all the way back to the 1930s when  fashion designer (Henry) met and subsequently married a fit model (Belle). Although Belle was Henry’s muse, she decided to ditch her modeling career to focus on philanthropy. Although the core of the modern day Henry & Belle is denim, fashion with a commitment to charity continues to be the theme. Through their “Right Amount of Give” program, with every pair of denim purchased, consumers have the ability to donate a portion of the proceeds to their charity of choice.

No More Solid Color Sweaters…For Now

 

target revised

Print or chambray. Nine times out of ten, you will see me wearing one or the other. With the weather now comfortably settled into the 30 to 40 degrees range, and since there is no such thing as a chambray sweater (or is it?), I plan to live in printed sweaters over the next few months. I have literally banned myself from purchasing solid color sweaters. And with so many prints and patterns available, that shouldn’t be a difficult task.

Friday Find: The Printed Moto Jacket

 

Friday Find showcases the item ChiTown Fashionista has become smitten with during the current week. Plus, what better way to start the weekend than with a bit of impulse shopping? It’s been a long week, you’ve earned it.

 

ff - kmillen jacquard

Biker jacket. Moto jacket. Whatever you’ve decided call it, just know that the style is being sold practically everywhere this season, from Target to Bloomingdale’s. But there is nothing like a beautiful print to separate the Karen Millen Jacquard Biker Jacket from the pack.
