A WHOLE LOT happened this week in the world of fashion and style. Here I’ve recreated three of the most talked about celebrity looks by shopping exclusively from Chicago’s local indie boutiques and designers. Check it out and scoop up these items before they’re gone!
Solange performed in Philly last Saturday wearing this hot little tribal number. For a similar look, go with a brand known for their wild use of African prints – Boxing Kitten. Find Boxing Kitten at Sir & Madame in Chi’s Ukrainian Village.
1. Chinese Laundry Joy Ride Sandals, Akira/ 2. Vanessa Mooney Akaska Diamond Necklace, The Green Goddess/ 3. Shorts by Boxing Kitten, Sir & Madame (call ahead for availability information)
She’s not even in the film, but in this white hot frock you’d think she was the leading star. Angelina Jolie supported her husband’s expected flop, World War Z, during its Berlin premier wearing this beautiful number by Ralph & Russo. Create a similar look with this gorgeous dress by Chicago designer Shalini.
1. The Cyndi Dress, Shalini/ 2. Viv and Ingrid Large 14K Gold Hoops, The Green Goddess/ 3. Amrita Singh Gold Tone Nura Bangle Set, The Green Goddess/ 4. Jeffrey Campbell Koons in Black Suede and Silver (now on sale!), Lori’s Shoes
In this short little dress, model Jessica Stam looked out of place amongst all the ball gowns at this year’s CFDA Fashion Awards Ceremony. A bit of fabric at the hem would’ve upgraded her look tremendously. Get it right where Jessica got it wrong in one of my favorite peplum dresses by Chicago designer Crystal B. Designs.
1. Jeffrey Campbell Holiday Sandals, Akira/ 2. Pink and Orange Wood Necklace, M2/ 3. One shoulder yellow peplum dress from the Pop Art Collection, Crystal B. Designs
