Nothing better than a little shopping trip to get myself out of a rut, so I have the latest finds from new local resources.

Bee Home & Garden, 128 Chicago Ave, Oak Park.  This gorgeous new shop is a little oasis, especially the back garden!  The product mix is a curated collection of home decor items, kitchen wear; jewelry & scarves, antique inspired garden pots; and lucious plants & flowers.  I bought a glass terrarium jar, and cute '50's style iced tea glasses with wicker cozies!  Check out the etherial jewelry I am all about for the Indian Summer ahead.

River Forest native Alanna Chiefari, recently launched her own e-commerce Chloe & Isabel jewelry line: a lovely combo of precious & semi precious stones, in casual light layers, pretty colors, retro, & nature inspired looks. I also love the tough girl spikes & woven metal pieces. 

You can view her collections at: Stay tuned for the Mémoires de Paris collection launching on her website soon!  Contact Alana for more info: #708.218.7306,

Here is a tip to getting more out of your jewelry collection: try mixing metals, and combining fashion jewelry w/ fine jewelry.  Take 2 of these and experiment: gold, silver, rose gold, vintage rodite or pewter, & brass -  its a definite DO.

Enjoy the absolute best days of the year, in Style!  If you crave more fashion news and advice, follow me on Twitter and Facebook, and subscribe to my Styling Newsletter: you can sign up by visiting my website:
