Friday Find: Oui, Oui

 

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 (or gift) shopping? It’s been a long week, you’ve earned it.

This laser cut beauty of a brooch was one of my top picks for the IRISTOCRACY event I co-hosted earlier this week (recap coming soon). And since I can’t ever seem to encourage people to buy something without putting my money where my mouth is, I purchased it and took it home that day (as did my girl DJ Lani Love).

If you follow me on Twitter, then you know that I took a vow to stop buying black shoes and handbags (well, until this happened). Thanks to Saturday (Kate Spade’s new, hipper brand), it’s turning out to be a somewhat easy task.

turban

I love a good turban. Particularly when it’s worn by someone else (and especially when that “someone” is June Ambrose). I have yet to master the art of tying/styling a turban and I kinda envy those who have. Thankfully, someone has answered the call of those, like me, who are creatively challenged.

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.

Friday Find: Egyptian Summer with King Onye

King Onye has officially launched its Egyptian Summer Collection and I am completely obsessed with the King Tut Turquoise Necklace. Incorporating turquoise (which is pretty much the most popular, and most flattering, color for summer) makes it the perfect accessory for the rest of the season. Can’t you imagine wearing it with a  simple tank and your favorite maxi skirt?

Since it is a limited edition, you will need to act fast. Click here to get your hands on this beauty. Let me warn you, though. You may get sidetracked by one of the other items in collection.  But I can guarantee that whichever one you decide on will be an excellent choice.

Friday Find: Popcorn with Kate Spade

Nothing screams nostalgia like this Cinema City Bag by Kate Spade. With a patent leather exterior reminiscent of an old school movie popcorn box and an interior emblazoned with metallic polka dots, this is one of the best novelty bags on the market. And compared to the Charlotte Olympia version, it is also a little more affordable.

It will still be the most expensive box of popcorn you’ll ever purchase, although not by much. Have you seen the prices at the concession stand lately?

Friday Find: Dot Floral Pumps by Karen Millen

Dots. Floral. And on sale. That pretty much sums up our Friday Find this week.

Karen Millen never disappoints in the footwear department. And their End of Season Sale is the best time to shop the collection. Unfortunately, when something goes on sale, that means the most popular sizes sell out quick! So for you size 6s and 7s, today is your lucky day. Grab these statement shoes for less than a meal for two at Ruth’s Chris.

What a way to start off the summer on the right foot…literally.

Friday Find: A Film and A Store Opening You Can’t Miss

 

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.

 

For this week’s Friday Find, we’re taking a break from featuring tangible goods to shine some light on a couple of experiences you should partake in over the weekend (besides the event I’m hosting on Sunday). Be warned, one of them may still lead to the purchase of a tangible good or two.

 

 

Scatter My Ashes At Bergdorf’s

I had the pleasure of attending a screening of this movie earlier this week, and have to say it is an absolute “must see” for anyone that truly loves fashion. This documentary provides viewers a clear understanding of what makes Bergdorf Goodman the destination of choice for shoppers who are not only seeking the best luxury goods, but appreciate the impeccable service and exclusivity that Bergdorf’s prides itself on.

From the storied history of the Bergdorfs and Goodmans (did you know the Goodmans lived on the top floor of the store for many years, in a 16-room apartment?) to the intensely tedious process of creating the store’s world renowned window displays, this film will make you appreciate Berdorf’s for more than just the obvious. Of course, there are a few juicy stories, as recounted by the owners, employees and designers. You’ll find out which celebrity unexpectedly purchased 70+ fur coats on Christmas Eve as gifts for loved ones and which designer was dropped by Bergdorf’s because they collaborated with JC Penney.

Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s opens today and will be showing at the AMC on 600 N. Michigan (if you’re not in Chicago, visit bergforf-movie.com and enter your zip code for locations and showtimes). Grab a few friends and check it out this weekend. You won’t regret it.

 

ULTA West Loop Grand Opening

ULTA on Halsted Interior-Exterior Photos-9

That’s right. ULTA is opening a new location in the West Loop today!

For those of you that live and work in the area, I’m sure you’ve been walking past the storefront (16 S. Halsted) in anticipation of this day.

Sure, you can visit the store whenever your heart desires. But this particular weekend, in celebration of the opening, there are deals and freebies to be had. Today through Sunday, there will be complimentary makeovers and consultations from brands like Urban Decay, bare Minerals, Murad and Philosophy, gift certificates (for the first 100 shoppers each day) and free gifts (for the first 1000 visitors over the entire weekend). That’s more than enough reason to get down there at some point this weekend.

Enjoy.

Friday Find: Movado ‘Bold’ Crystal Dot Watch

 

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.

movado watch
Stark white and sparkly. This is my kind of Movado.

I spotted this ‘Bold’ Crystal Dot version while flipping the pages of the latest Nordstrom catalog (which I tend to do more often than I should). I’m a strong proponent of wearing white watches all summer long. And although I adore my ceramic Michael Kors watch, I think it’s time to add a new milky white timepiece to my arsenal.

The colored Swarovski crystal accent adds the perfect hint of femininity (what girl doesn’t love a dose of sparkle?) and the design is oh-so clean. If you’re looking to join the Movado family, this is the ideal introductory piece. That’s because a price tag of $395 makes it one of the most affordable Movados you can find (you can thank the leather strap for that).

Now I’m off to update my Mother’s Day wishlist, yet again. It’s never too late, right?

Friday Find: J. Crew Scalloped Linen 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.

When the J. Crew catalog hits my mailbox, everything stops. I will flip through the pages with one hand while holding the baby in the other (if it comes down to that). Of course the merchandise is quality, but it’s the styling that gets me excited. This week, however, there was one particular item that literally jumped out of the page. There was no sophisticated styling involved. It didn’t need it. It was a shining star, all by itself.

 jcrew scalloped jacket

 

Yes, the Scalloped Linen Jacket is unique in its design and will make your circle of fashion friends envious. However, the appeal resides in the fact that it can also spice up one’s work wardrobe. We all know how difficult it is to find something that is equally professional and stylish. That could very well be the reason the above photo resonated so well with our Instagram, Facebook and Twitter followers.

I have a feeling this jacket will sell out fast, so be sure to get your hands on one as soon as possible. The versatility, alone, will make it worth every penny.
