Wednesday night Cerato Boutique opened up their doors to Chicago fashionistas
with a relaxed evening at their charming shop located on the up and coming Southport Avenue. Suzanne Kopulous(founder of Garmental) was there offering her styling expertise on this coming winter's fashions. Riazul, the yummiest new tequila, was mixing strawberry lemonade martini's with their Riazul Silver so that guests could sip to prevent drooling over the gorgeous pieces on display.
Tracey Gilbowski, owner of Cerato, has created a wonderland for shoppers who want to patronize designers from the Chicago area. With the majority of their pieces coming from local designers, Cerato has a unique approach versus more mainstream stores with bigger labels. Pieces range in price and style, but all have an air of classiness with a unique twist to each piece. Because the designers are local, the pieces have a breath of "Windy City" style about them.
I instantly became obsessed with Lara Miller's eco-friendly bamboo knits that were
softer than imaginable and totally body skimming and feminine. Jules jewelry had me in awe with its versatility and innovative designs. My favorite piece was a bracelet that is half square bangle, half charmed chain specifically created for the bangle to lay flush to your keyboard. No more annoying keyboard-bracelet fights while you work!
Through Saturday, if you spend $200 at Cerato you get a $25 gift card to use on a later purchase! Once you make that first purchase you'll be so hooked on their unique finds you'll be grateful for the money towards what you want to buy next.
