on the Cusp of Spring…..



If you pay attention to our Facebook page, you might know that I’m having an event tomorrow night at Cusp here in the Northern suburbs of Chicago (Northbrook, to be exact).  I am SO EXCITED.  For those of you are not familiar with Cusp, it’s basically the little sister store of Neiman Marcus.  A little cooler, always on trend, and full of eye candy for us gals.  I LOVE shopping there as I pretty much lust after everything I see, as well as their window displays.  They are SUPER creative and inspiring for each season.

We’ll be highlighting Cusp’s Spring trends tomorrow for everyone in attendance, so i thought I’d give you a little preview.  Following are my favorite pieces from each trend…..Can’t wait to show some of these off in person!

Trend:  Warm Weather Leather


Patterson J Kincaid Pleated Peplum Top, $358


Trend: Amazing Lace


Milly Claudia Scalloped Lace Dress, $395

Trend: Print Mania


Parker Printed Contrast Trim Blouse, $208


Trend: High Voltage Handbags


MICHAEL Michael Kors Jet Set Saffiano Travel Tote, $278

MARC by Marc Jacobs Studded Mouse Ballerina Flat, $248

Hope this gives you that nudge to start purchasing some pieces for your Spring wardrobe – and here’s a little secret.  As a former buyer, I can tell you that the BEST pieces from designers usually come out in the first or second delivery into stores.  So things you see in January and February are typically the designers favorites.  If you can – snatch your favorites up now before they sell out.  By the time the weather matches up to the clothing, it’s my opinion that the collections are a little tired.

So will I see you Chicago gals tomorrow night?  I hope so.
