Fashion Focus Chicago -Studio-808 presents: the Accessory Style Lounge

Phew, what an exciting, fashion filled day!!!

There is so much I want to share:

First up this afternoon there was a fabulous event by Studio-808 presents the Accessory Style Lounge. Ah and it was amazing!!!
I think Chicago has the most talented designers for jewelry on the planet! Well maybe I'm just being biased but each vendor was incredible in their own way.

The first designer I stopped to see was the superb Susan Elizabeth Designs. All her jewelry is handcrafted and the pictures only captures an image but you have to feel the pieces and they are all so durable and distinctive. She is very committed and excited about her jewelry line!
I had my heart stolen by this adorable wired ring, that has beautiful mauve, and clear stones intertwined on the wire, just simply amazing. I have not taken the ring off all day, it matches my Movado pink face perfectly. You can visit her online @ http://www.susanelizabethdesigns.com/



Her Amazing collection

Retail Price $45.00


The next designer was the joyful jules. She is a modern artisan jewelry line. And is carried in 10 stores across Chicago! Meeting her in person she is very humble and sweet, I enjoyed her presence as much as her jewelry!
 Her collection is already a hit across the globe and one of my favorite chefs Rachel Ray wears her jewelry line. Visit her online to find stores near you @ http://www.shopjules.com/.
I feel in love with this exquisite hand jewelry piece. Oh gosh it was incredible:

The nest designer was Lisa Spagnolo a lovely handbag designer. Her pieces were fun and fresh. You could use her totes for all purposes they transition seamlessly from day to night! Visit her store online @ http://www.etsy.com/shop/lisaspagnolo

I also visited Love Lulu Mae>>*sigh* her pieces are just made to be worn to special events or just a night on the town! They all look like they should be on the cover of a magazine and well you guessed it they were. One of her designs was featured in Italian Vogue! Lulu Mae has such a sparkling personality! I purchased one of the effortlessly stunning hair clips pictured below. And took some fun pictures as well with her designs:
