The Haute Hijab Spring/Summer '13 Collection has finally arrived and is now live on Haute Hijab.com! The collection features full length skirts, essential tops and classy dresses that feature trendy stripes, polka dots, timeless lace and more. View the whole collection here. I'm loving each piece in the collection and how classic and chic each look is. I'm obsessed with the skirts which can be beautifully paired with endless tops and accessories. If I had to choose, my favorite piece would be the Baroque Ruffle Back Lace Skirt. Isn't it divine?

"She’s got one of the best jobs in the world. Her boyfriend is universally famous and totally devoted to her. She’s adored by millions. In short, she has it all. We’re talking about Minnie Mouse, whose bight yellow pumps and polka dot skirt are synonymous with flirty, feminine style. And she’s stepping out, ready to make her mark in the fashion world. This summer, OPI and Disney collaborate to create a whole new exciting line of shades that are sure to appeal to every fashionista’s sense of style, including a new Liquid Sand™ shade, soon to be spotted on runways worldwide."
As a member of the Vogue Influencer Network, I received one of the fresh shades in the new Couture de Minnie by OPI collection. My polish is a pretty bubblegum pink called Chic from Ears to Tail.

Whenever I'm in the city shopping, I love it when there are fun fashion events that fall on the same day. Last night's calendar was filled with events from the loop to Lincoln Park, and since I was shopping in the loop I decided to stop by the grand opening of the new LOFT on Michigan Avenue and the Great Gatsby Fashion Show at the Rooftop at the Wit.
The LOFT grand opening featured tasty hors d'oeuvres - who knew watermelon and cheese could be so yummy - and the LOFT pieces I love. It also debuted the new Wakami friendship bracelets created by women in Guatemala. The opening was hosted by 7 LOFT Girls of Chicago. The ROOF Runway show came complete with goodie bags compliments of Mario Tricoci salon and featured intricate designs by Sue Wong. The dresses were brilliant and so reminiscent of the fashions of the 1920s. Unfortunately half way into the show my iPhone decided to die on me. View the entire collection here.
Before the events, I checked out the month long art exhibit at Block 37 home to Zara and Anthropologie on State Street. "Work at Play" showcases art that illustrates "the blurred line between work and play" and will be up through June.

Year-round maxi skirts are a staple in my wardrobe that I'm always more excited to wear when the weather warms up. When I pull out a maxi skirt, I usually wear it in a few different ways - with a loose light sweater, with a cardigan over a blouse, with a button-down, or with a fitted long sleeve tee tucked in. One way I have yet to try is with a chambray button-down sweetly tied at the waist.
How do you wear your maxi skirt?
