Get Blown Away in the Windy City!!


Hello everybody!

I have found some great news to share with all of you! If you haven't heard of Blowtique before, then listen up! Blowtique is Chicago's PREMIER blow-out only salon and has been featured in the Best Dressed issue of what we all know as The Fashion Bible...VOGUE. How great is that!? 

The idea behind Blowtique is that a blowout should be as easy, and as quick, as it is to pop in somewhere for a manicure. A typical appointment for a blowout lasts only about half an hour and is reasonably priced at $35. The salon is located in the beautiful River North, and is near many great shops and restaurants to stop at after you have been "blown away"!  Now, for the exciting news...

Come Tuesday, March 12th, Head & Shoulders and Celebrity Stylist Sunnie Brook Jones are coming to Blowtique in River North to give FREE wash & styles to the women of Chicago!

Starting at 10:00am, women can stop in for a free consultation with Sunnie Brook (whose work has been featured in LUCKY, Allure, and Self) and receive a rescue wash & style, compliments of new Head & Shoulders Damage Rescue.

Prabal Gurung For Target

Talk about "Designer For Less"

Prabal Gurung (Prah-ball Goo-rung), a name that has been echoing more and more lately, has collaborated with Target to release a line of clothing consisting of more than 80 pieces. Numerous celebs have been dressed in Prabal's stylish designs, from Michelle Obama in the White House to Kate Middleton in Wales, to Sarah Jessica Parker, Mila Kunis, Olivia Palermo, Zoe Saldana and many more red carpet celebs! Prabal Gurung is a favorite in the fashion industry and has been taking the world by storm with his uniquely edgy yet feminine silhouettes. 

This collaboration has been an eagerly awaited one. The line was launched in select Target stores on February 10. Within one day it was almost completely sold out!! It was a huge success and I was lucky enough to be able to snatch a few items before they were gone! The line is called "Love" and there is definitely a lot to love about it!! It's very fashion forward and synonymous with this years latest trends. Integrated in the clothing is black and white, neon, stripes, floral's and patterns.

Prabal has stayed true to his aesthetic in this line, and has offered key looks that women admired on Michelle Obama and Kate Middleton, for instance, to consumers at a lower and more affordable price point. Prabal is adored for his dresses and jewelry, and Target was smart to stick to those basics in this collaborated line. The prices range from $15 to about $45. If you have time to run to your closest Target, I highly recommend you do so, these pieces are well crafted and running low on stock! Snatch some while you still can!! They are great for a night out in town, a girls dinner and party, a first date, a meet-the-parents night, and are versatile enough for the day as well!!  It's safe to say they hit the target on this one! ;)

I'm hypno-striped....

Everywhere you look in 2013, you will find stripes. This stylish trend has hit runways and stores everywhere. The great thing about the stripes is that you can play with them in a multitude of ways, from colors to embellishments, and fabrics to accessories. There are subtle ways to wear the trend and statement-making ways as well. Whichever path you take, stripes can be found in many shapes and forms. Don't be afraid, try things on and see what fits your taste and body the best. Most importantly, have fun with them! They are playful and serious at the same time, so depending on how you put your outfit together, you can create the look that's right for you and the mood you're in!

Play with colors and embellishments, and mix and match! I would totally do the yellow top with the salmon skirt or even with a colored skinny ankle pant, like a cobalt blue.

For Fendi...stripes just come naturally. Don't you just Love the pop of red on the right handbag, it makes the piece playful and creates a statement look!

                    SPLURGE:  Giuseppe Zanotti $1295                      STEAL: Toms $95 (oh, you know...just $1200 less)

I mean, even covers are striped these days...I told you they are inescapable!

Simply put...this cover is stripe-azing!
