Night in White 2012 Sneak Peek

I stopped into Sara Benjamin’s to do some shopping for our upcoming Night in White event on April 20. It’s an awesome event, which benefits a local nursing scholarship, that Cincy Chic has been hosting for the past three years. So, now in my mind, this night signifies the official start of Spring! It’s the first time I wear all white, and the fashion show at the event is full of fun new Spring trends! This year, Sara Benjamin’s (my fav go-to boutique for anything from casual everyday to cocktail attire) is our fashion show sponsor.

They didn’t disappoint during my visit, as I saw four things I wanted before I even walked in the door! I wanted the jeans, top and scarf on the one mannequin and the little red number on the other! I walked in and found MUCH more that I wanted! But I was on a mission to find a little white dress (funny thing is, I actually ended up purchasing a wallet and fashion tape – no dress – haha! random!).

But, in terms of little white dresses, I did find several. I found a fab crocheted off-white dress I adored (pictured above) so I might go back and get it. They also had a few others – one bright white with a eyelet fabric overlay, another more casual and boho, and another that was long-sleeved and fitted (yet tres short and sexy with a deep-cut open back).

Grand Opening of One Mode!

This is one event you’re not going to want to miss!

The GRAND OPENING event of One Mode, Cincinnati’s newest boutique in Mariemont, was being held on Friday, February 24 from 6pm-9pm.

I’m so excited for this event because my friends Marsha and Brock – stylists with Style Edit – are doing the styling for the boutique!

There will be a champagne toast and fabulous fashion! See you there!

New Yarnz Arrivals at Sara Benjamin’s

The air has been crisp lately! That means Fall is almost here!

Summer is my favorite season because I love warm weather, but Fall is my second favorite because of the fashion. There’s something about cuddling up in a warm sweater, or throwing a scarf around your neck when a top and jeans aren’t quite warm enough.

Sara Benjamin’s just announced they got in their new arrival of fall fashion. But what caught my eye were all the new Yarnz scarves, hats and gloves they got in. I had never heard of the brand before, but I really liked the designs.

Plus the model kind of looks like me, so I did a double take. I sometimes have trouble making scarves and hats look right on me, and this was like looking in a mirror at a girl who was definitely making these hats and scarves look right. They’re absolutely adorable on her.

I did a little digging, and Yarnz is based out of New York, but Sara Benjamin’s appears to be the only one selling the line locally. The fun thing about these scarves is that – to the untrained eye – they just look like large, printed scarves. Which, yes, they are. But the fun thing about them is that when you unfold the scarves and lay them out they are actually prints of modern iconography, contemporary/pop artists, etc.

For example, I indicated in the collage of photos I made above which scarf is actually a modern graphic print of David Bowie. But when you’re wearing it, no one would ever know… it’s just your little secret with David Bowie.

Typically, I go to Sara Benjamin’s for my cocktail dresses. But their scarves have caught my eye before, so I’m definitely going to have to pop in there and see if I look as good as the model in these things! I called to ask for pricing and they said, depending on how big they are and much cashmere is used in the material, they range from mid-$50s to $170s.
