This Rock Jacquard Drop Sleeve Coat is the perfect mixed of pattern and print. Open Ceremony for the spring has expanded on their Korean inspiration. This coat is off centered and gives a great over size look. What I find particularly interesting is the the buttons follow suit with the picture printed side and the snap confirms the same aesthetic on the patterned side. This coat puts me at an all time HIGH! I love where this coat is going and I need this in my wardrobe asap! If you are like me you can purchase this coat at opening ceremony.

MY “EYE CATCHER” PICKS FOR THE WEEK
Boot: Go Jane - Cute, simple, easy to transition with in your closet, fun gold hardware, and a sexy cutout to show off your socks a bit or dare I say feet…
Boxy Sweatshirt: Asos - Let your inner sporty tomboy self out! This is a cute shirt for an amazing price. You also can dress this top up or down your choice. The floral in the 5 gives you room to play and really make it fun
Skinny Pants: Nasty Gal - These Pants say so much and have all the right colors to go with it. Style on with a sporty biker jacket and an exquisite lipstick
Phantom Bag: Jessie Adore - This bag is the essence of quality. It is made out of lambskin and the top bar is made out of brass. This bag takes my breathe away. It has everything to offer the look, color, and function.
I was recently invited to take part in the Global Design Challenge with Salford University and RMIT as well as my college Columbia College Chicago. It was a six hour design challenge where we were assigned a word and had to make 3 designs from it with limited materials of tape, bating, and paper. My word was noise so I designed a dress of echoes. At the end they only selected 10 out of all the 48 garments made. My dress was selected and is on Michigan Avenue until the 17th of November.
Materials: Paper, Bating, and tape.
