silver sequin top & jacket, Sanem's

The Glamour of the Holidays!  This special time of year: the festive season, is chalk full of celebrations with friends, family & colleagues.  Wondering what to wear?  I have an insiders list to help you look stunning for every occasion: and grab the chance to bust out some sequins and shinny stuff! 

Which leads me to my Style tip for the week: gorgeous separates, dresses & more for the Holidays and beyond from Sanem’s boutique in Oak Park.  Here we find a one stop shopping extravaganza with the gorgeous & outspoken shop owner, Sanem & her lovely Mother Insel, tirelessly assembling the perfect outfit just for you!  Of Turkish & French decent, Sanem was influenced by her glamourous Maternal Grandmother, during summer trips to Turkey.  Her love of fashion & a desire to to help women feel & look their best, brought her to open this amazing shop August, 2010.

Roundup of dazzling outfits:  From ‘Eva Khurshid’, a color that looks good on everyone: teal, silk blouse, $128. & navy/black leopard print pencil skirt, $128. Topped with a suit jacket for day, this outfit morphs easily to night with a pair of glittery earrings from Chicago designer, Kristin Amato, $48.  For a dramatic look, day or night: Grey knit, ‘Amour Vert’ dress, $118. paired with my favorite, (very Chanel) item in the store: ‘Sao Paulo’ black boucle jacket, $168.  If Santa is smart enough to fetch me this jacket for Christmas; I will wear it every day with jeans & boots!

Love the Boyfriend sequin top from ‘213’ with a perfect pair of black leggings w/ leather piping, $78.   I seriously want the magenta ‘Central park west’ racer back top, that floats atop those leggings; throw on the ‘Sao Paulo’ Cardi w/ lace sleeves, $78., and pendant necklace for $52.: a great hostess outfit.  What about the batwing ‘Sanctuary’ lace top, $94. layered over ‘Only Hearts’ metallic tank, $68.; and matching feather ‘Serafina’ necklace, for $65.?

I could spend all day in here – but I have to wrap it up with one more outfit: gray sequin pilates tank top by ‘Papillon Blanc’, $138. and cascading jacket from “Gracia”, $98. – put these together with a long skirt and platform pumps for a dynamite party look.

Timeless trends are what Sanem’s brings; each item is beautiful, every bit worthy of a gift for a loved one, and for oneself of course.  Get in there this season and discover the ‘Sanem’s experience’!
