Resort 2011-ready to wear

Dear Fashionistas,

Are you ready for the resort collection 2011?  It certainly is difficult to grasp in Chicago while we are under freezing temperatures seven days a week.  But some of us will be enjoying warm weather (we are crossing our fingers) over the holidays and need to look our best while sipping a piña colada beach side or strolling along the palm tree lined shopping district.

The resort collection is a time where the designers put together style pieces to help climb out of the of winter doldrums. This year the collection is filled with earth-toned shades, a rainbow of color mixed with prints and fantastic soft fabrics.  Lot's of clean crisp structures along with flowing skirts and dresses.  There is something for everyone and I am here to help you find a few pieces to help you pack the latest and greatest to pair with items you may already have in your closet.

1. I love this Club Monaco blouse.  It is so feminine and chic. A bit of vintage flair with a modern twist.  I would wear this piece paired with off white wide leg pants or skinny pants and layer it with a soft cardigan for the evening.  Add a fabulous long chain necklace to tie it all together. Club Monaco is located on Damen Ave.

2. Nanette Lepore on Damen Ave. has a few pieces I would like to snag for my suitcase. Pair this exaggerated romance blouse with blouson sleeves and ruffled trim with dark skinny jeans  and your set for comfort and style!

3. For a splash of color, I adore this red tulip dress at Zara located on Michigan Ave.  Keep it simple and don't worry about accessorizing as this dress is already making a statement!

Ta Ta,
