I've gotta say I have a hard time passing up accessories with heart details.  These tights are my absolute favorite pair! Here's a little secret, I actually have an enormous run on the upper right thigh.  The day it happened I quickly stitched it up, and have been hoping ever since I don't get another one. The heart broach with a pearl I found at a thrift store in the suburb my parents live in.  What I like most about it is how simple it is.  Plus the pearl, I can never say no to pearls.  Both of these dainty heart details really spruce up this simple dress.

Lavender Lovin'

Well, yesterday we received another tease of spring weather. But I can't complain, I had a beautiful Sunday afternoon.  I began the day  having brunch with a friend at Frontier in Wicker Park.  After brunch, we grabbed some coffee at The Wormhole then strolled over to one of her favorite Comic book stores.  I'm not usually one for comics, but I enjoyed having her show me some of her favorites.  It was a much-needed relaxing day after such a busy week with school, work, and working the StyleMax fashion trade show for the first time.

But what really made this day fantastic was walking around in the sun in my new Jeffery Campbell for Free People boots! I fell madly in love with these babies the second I put them on.  I received them in the mail last Tuesday, and have worn them almost every day since. I love how well this drop-waist lavender dress goes with them so well.

Flower Power

Every spring, select Macy's locations hold their annual flower show.  I went for the first time in years this past week and I was absolutely amazed! The entire show was completely inspiring.  Being in a huge room surrounded by some of the most beautiful flowers I've ever seen was just wonderful.  The props and decor continued to stun me as well.

The ninth floor event room was completely filled with dozes of flowered accents of South Asian culture.  The flowers were flown in from Florida a few weeks before the show.  I can't even begin to imagine the work and planning required to set up an event as spectacular as this one.  If you were unable to visit the show this year in Chicago, New York, or Austin, be sure to treat yourself to this lovely experience next year!

Michael Kors Windows

I am so excited to share with you my latest project in my Visual Merchandising class.  The class is actually held in Macy's on State Street, and my two professors are actually two of the head visuals in the store!  Luckily, it's quite a small class, so we had the opportunity to work on six shadowbox windows on the Washington Street side of the building.  The products used are accessories from Michael Kors Spring Summer 2013 collection.  

I created these two windows with my classmate Annie.  When selecting products, we both instantly began to drool over the navy and white striped bag.  We allowed our desire to add these bags to our own closets drive our creativity!  I'm super proud of these windows, especially because we had no direction from our professors, other then when we created the Michael Kors logo repeatedly out of vinyl to cover the side walls (which I have to admit was quite a pain).  

I'll be sharing more of my work with you soon!
