Redgi Woods ReFINDefined

Today’s giveaway may not exactly be a tangible item, but it’s definitely one worth envying. Redgi Woods, stylist extraordinaire and ReFINDefined designer, proved that men could know a thing or two about style when we featured him on season 1 of our Closet Conversations series. Even Refinery29 fell prey to his fashion prowess.

#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.

Nordstrom YOUphoria, Achieved

 

SONY DSC

The Nordstrom YOUphoria event went down last week at Nordstrom in Oak Brook and it was indeed a great time. I, along with my fellow YOUphoria Fashion Face-off bloggers, had a chance to mingle with our readers and supporters while grubbing on some insanely good food (hello, apple pie in a jar), enjoying the sounds of DJ Wizz Kid, having a little fun with the high-tech TapSnap photo booth and shopping, of course.

Of course, the winner of the style showdown was announced. If you followed along on Instagram and Twitter, you know that Natalie took home the grand prize (a big congrats to her!).  Jen and I also walked away with a little something, something. So all is truly fair in love and (style) war.

Nordstrom YOUphoria (and a Fashion Face-Off)

 


YOUphoria is not just a clever play on words. It is a campaign Nordstrom launched this year, based on a pretty straightforward concept . The retailer is known for offering a variety of brands and a wide range of sizes at several different price points, which makes it easy for customers to build head-to-toe looks that are unique to their own personal style and taste. So, it’s not just about Nordstrom being your shopping destination of choice for that one special item (although, I’m not totally against it). It’s more about making it your “happy place” for all of your wardrobe needs.

I was recently asked to find my YOUphoria at the Nordstrom in Oak Brook. I partnered up with one of the in-store stylist, Tanja, to create a complete outfit. We discussed my likes and dislikes prior to our meeting (which is one of many reasons it’s good to utilize the Nordstrom stylists) and she had several items already laid out for me, in the dressing room, when I arrived. After taking a look at the items she pulled, it was time to hit the racks to find more complementary pieces.

As one who typically likes to shop alone, I must say that shopping with Tanja was an unexpected delight. It’s good to navigate the store with someone who knows exactly where to find certain items you’re looking for and which brands will work for your body type. After grabbing a couple more things, it was time to head to the dressing room.
