Instagram Shoot at Taste and Trend. Meet The Designers!

Dear Fashionistas,
Fashionista Chicago was asked to cover  the Taste & Trend event last Thursday at the Wave restaurant in the W hotel on Lakeshore Drive.  Hosted by Deanna Dugo, W Hotel event Coordinator and Jim  Snediker of Left of Trend a unique social networking/shopping website specializing in the hottest local designers.  This duo puts together a night of  food, drinks and fashion held once a month. Only $20 for two specialty drink tickets and a foodies delight in appetizers including polenta french fries.  Yum!  The highlight of the evening however are the Chicago designers showcasing their pieces and giving out nice discounts if purchased on the spot.  I was impressed with the collections presented given the limited space.  The fashion forward designers who presented their collection are definitely worth shopping for!

Brynn Capella- Her Chicago made leather bags are so versatile.  We love her new "Hey Sailor" bags.

BucketFeet- We love the idea of wearing art, especially on our shoes.  Plus, 5% of all proceeds goes to charity.

Whether Bags- Handcrafted locally, these sustainable all weather bags are for the stylish on the go.  We want the yoga mat carrier!
