On Thursday October 11, Second City Style hosted the debut of the Lafayette 148 New York collection at Nordstrom at Shops at North Bridge on Michigan Ave. The event was very laid back as event-goers were encouraged the shop the collection. Champagne and white wine were passed and small bites offered a little nosh for the two-hour long event.
Our very own Managing Editor of Second City Style, Carol Calacci, styled the collection of her favorite pieces, gave us her tips on how to style them together or incorporate the pieces into your current wardrobe. Todd Headrick, Lafayette 148 New York style extraordinaire, was also there to give his commentary on the the luxurious fabrics and finishes of the collection’s pieces.
The range went from work wear to casual to evening attire, and offered a little something for everyone. For all the ladies that were already excited about fall fashion, this definitely served as a surge to jump start their fall shopping sprees.
Check out some of the best items of the collection styled a la Carol! She told us that she was impressed with Lafayette 148 New York because of the fit, the fine Italian fabrics and tailoring, the modern design, and the wonderful accessories, including wide leather belts, gloves, fur pieces and clean and functional handbags. Carol told us the collection included many of fall 2012’s trends including pencil skirts, illusion prints, graphic prints, jewel tone colors, leather and fur. Great job, Carol! And great job Lafayette 148 New York and Nordstrom!
