more from mama...

and while we're talking about mama, you must check out the new juicy mama nail paint... the mama clothing/ juicy cosmetics collabo has produced some dope nail paint for the ladies who appreciate and aren't afraid to rock bold colors... black, light blue, and silver grey. i just love the packaging. can't wait to get my nails on them! check out the glamorous life (www.mamaclothing.com/blog) for info on where to find them.

showing mama (clothing) some love...

meant to post this weeks ago, but i just remembered while in the ladies room... no, not that one, misscrew's forum. although the post i'm referencing was more about imitation, this is more inspiration. looks like someone is paying attention to mama... check out this mama-inspired spread in the february issue of elle...

finally, chicago gets a REAL fashion event! not just some random group putting together some substandard runway shows, calling it fashion week. and no, this is not marshall field's, oops, macy's glamorama! (no disrespect to glamorama at all)

it's FashionWeekLive...coming to millennium park on march 13th! here are some details that i found on their website:

FashionWeekLive presented by Sephora is coming to Chicago, Houston, San Francisco and Dallas straight from the runways of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City.

In March ’07, this exclusive industry fashion extravaganza will be traveling across America to select cities for one night only. Tickets will be available to the fashion-savvy and the fashion-forward public. See selections from the just-debuted Fall ‘07 collections before they are in magazine layouts or in store windows.

World famous supermodels Naomi Campbell and Gemma Ward will walk the runways with other New York based models straight from the runways of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for an unprecedented night of fashion.

i am thrilled! sounds like it's going to be a fabulous event and definitely great for chicago fashion. tickets are $500 and $1000, but i'm looking for ways to get around that... stay tuned.


shoes...built by wendy

built by wendy now makes shoes... i was first introduced to this line while working at nana (www.nanadc.com), a super cute clothing boutique in dc (ladies, check them out on U st. for great new and vintage pieces). wendy's clothes are known for their great construction... especially her slacks. i'm sure her shoes will not disappoint her fans either. check out her full collection at www.builtbywendy.com.

another spring 007 collection

after my last post on doris ruth, i'm a little inspired to show some of my favorite spring 007 collections... so here are a few looks from tracy reese. i am a huge fan of this lady and her line. i just recently wore one of her fabulous dresses to my girl's wedding last month. i love her color choices...

doris ruth spring 007 collection

last night, myself and two girlfriends went to the W-city center for the unveiling of spring 007 collection of doris ruth, a vintage-inspired line out of chicago. the upstairs ballroom of the swank hotel was packed with who's who of chicago fashion, along with the small, but growing, group of trendy chicagoans, the after work crowd, and a few of the most random individuals in all of chicago... no seriously, like i think they crashed the party. oh well, the open bar made up for their randomness.

ok, so on to the purpose of the night... the fashion show was interesting. i've seen a few doris ruth pieces at random events, like gen art's shop chicago, but this was my first time actually seeing an entire collection. there were some nice pieces, but nothing that just floored me... actually the piece i liked best was the dress worn by the designer, allie adams (green dress). although i wasn't really a fan of most of the pieces that walked down the runway, i did see a few items in the lookbook worth checking out. oh and there were some cute pieces from the fall collection on sale at the actual event. check them out at www.dorisruth.com... and let me know what you think.
