Glam Damn It
Although, thus far, we have experienced very mild fall weather, we have had to wave goodbye to the days of summer dresses and sandals as we welcome socks and sweaters to our wardrobe. This is not to say, however, that we are sad about this--fall fashion is possibly the most fabulous of all the seasons. Filled with cute bomber jackets, chunky sweaters, high socks, and adorable booties, fall fashion is versatile, creative, fun, and easy to piece together. And lucky for you, we have scoured the web and found a few knockout pieces that are affordable, eye-catching, and able to withstand the test of time of trends come and gone. Get your game face on, and have your credit card ready, because you do not want to miss out on these finds!

We are going to add, that we were impressed by all of the various options Maidenform brings to the table (and your closet)!
The Akira's Annual Fashion show this year was an ultimate success- no different than prior years before. The Akira's 11th Annual Fall Fashion Runway Show 2013 ended with a bang as Kristin Cavallari hosted. The show was brought to you by Kristin's shoe line, Kristin Cavallari by Chinese Laundry. All ticket proceeds for the much anticipated show benefited the YWCA Metropolitan Chicago, a charity organization committed to eliminating racism and empowering women. The fashion and footwear ensembles featured in the show were a spectacular blend of “glam-meets-street style,” showcasing the must-have looks of the season. Models strutted down the runway in the latest Fall trends from Akira clothing perfectly paired with hot new shoe designs from Kristin’s Fall collection, including the “Leila,” “Letizia,” “Lacee,” “Copertina” and “Celestial.” Kristin showed off her flirty yet edgy style, as the special guest host of the event, wearing her favorite black “Copertina” pump from her shoe line and a black leather collared mini dress!

As winter approaches, it is tempting to stay inside and hybernate, but that is something we will only regret once bikini season comes back again, so instead of staying in, why not hit the gym? And hit it in style with Ryka. Ryka, the innovate atheltic sports wear company that caters to women only is where every athletic fashionita needs to turn when building their workout wardrobe. Everything that Ryka creates is designed for women. "From the shape of the female foot, to the angle of her stride, we understand that women require more than just a downsized version of a men's atheltic shoe." Just last week, we were able to sneak a peak at the Spring 2014 collection and were not only inspired to hit the gym in the stylish gear--we were excited!
