Giuseppe Zanotti gold chain sandal VS Steve Madden Magnetik

Brands surely are not hiding their high end counterpart “inspiration” anymore.  Recently I received the new arrivals email from Steve Madden and did a double take when I saw the Magnetik sandal ($109) from Steve Madden.  It’s a front runner for the Giuseppe Zanotti gold chain sandal ($895).

The Giuseppe does have much broader and heavier chain, while the Magnetik’s gold seems to be duller but I must admit the Magnetik is not a bad replica – I have seen way worse.  Hopefully in person it doesn’t come off as waxy and stiff. 

Would you rock out in the Magnetik sandal?

PINK Victoria's Secret introduces the lace racerback bralette and limited edition Chicago collection at Water Tower




 
Recently I was invited to check out the new PINK Victoria's Secret lace racerback bralette and bandeau at Water Tower along with the PINK limited edition Chicago collection.  The new additions of bralettes and bandeaus to the PINK line are cute, flirty and fun. The bralette has a lacy triangle racerback and pretty straps with soft, mesh-lined cups; the bandeau is smooth and strapless.  Coming in a variety of colors, it’s a new way to layer under outfits and tank tops.  They are not sheer, and you can wear them alone or even over your regular bra for extra support.  They add a fun and flirty look to all tees, tanks and hoodies.
 

 

 
 

Also at the Water Tower PINK store there is a limited edition Chicago sports collection for Cubs and Sox fans.  The line boost a range of baseball caps, shirts, shorts and items to get you in the spirit.  With rhinestones and eye catching designs you will want to show your team spirit and love for Chicago everyday!
 
 
 

 
Go and check out the Chicago collection and the new bralette and bandeau at Water Tower Place.

Mani Monday with Dawn Danielle



 
 
I have been presented with the opportunity to model Dawn Danielle fabulous work on my nails.  For the past month she has come up with gorgeous nail looks to fit events I attended and show off her fabulous skills. 

 


 My first look consisted of Melody Ehsani nail stickers in a funky print mixed with matte black nails- stunner!  My second look was to complement a red jumpsuit to a luxury car company party….alas I went a different route with my clothing and instead choose a TopShop black leather skirt and sky high LAMB pumps but her Minx mixture of silver and red nails still complimented my look.  For my third look she went high fashion with YSL (Yves Saint Laurent) inspired decals set against a backdrop of nude nails with gold glitter accented nail beds.  For my fourth look this month we went with white and turquoise nails accented with rhinestones – bling!
Dawn has been in the industry for over ten years and worked on numerous editorials, special fashion events and campaigns. Dawn also has advanced certifications as a Minx professional and a Master Painter in Shellac for CND.   Her work has been listed in Instyle.com, Nail Pro magazine, various fashion and beauty blogs.   She has also worked at New York Fashion Week where her art has been seen on the hands of runway models. 

 Her private nail studio currently resides in Chicago’s historic Bronzeville community.  For more information and to make your appointment visit Style Seat.


Stay tuned for May!
