Anastasia Chatzka Spring's Forward

Dear Fashionistas,
Fun, quirky and bold describes Chicago designer Anastastia Chatzka's S/S 2011 collection. You can see some resemblance of designers Betsy Johnson and Anna Sui since she worked with them as an apprentice.  However, she definitely has her own flair adding details such as ruffles and buttons in unexpected places.
Her tailored blouse with a flair ruffle tucked around the waist completes a perfect look with plaid shorts, pencil skirt or skinny jeans.  The English riding jacket pictured above fits like a glove and has a beautiful ribbon detail around the wrist of the sleeve.  Spring forward to her store at the location 1740 West Division in Wicker Park to see these pieces close up.  It is worth the trip wherever you are.
Anastasia designs, manufactures and sells her collection in Chicago.  We love her for staying true to Chicago and for providing us with flirty pieces that make us feel sexy and young.  A true Fashionista Chicago.

Ta Ta,
