Scene: Sparkle & Sophistication Party

Sparkle & Sophistication is a jewelry company owned and run by Chicagoan Nusrat Siddiqui. Over the weekend, my friend Ayesha and I attended the official media party for S&S held at Lacuna Artist Loft. The event was attended by a number of Chicago fashionistas and jewelry lovers. Jewelry from S&S was displayed at the event for guests to style and makeup artists and hairstylists primped guests for a fun lookbook photoshoot at the trendy venue. Between getting makeup done, chatting with Nusrat, and eyeing beautiful baubles, we munched on decadent cupcakes from Tipsycakes and swayed to on-point tunes. I loved the S&S jewelry and how she made Swarovski crystals the star of several pieces. My favorite pieces from the collection would have to be the MOD necklace with the tassel and the Empress necklace with statement crystals.

What I Wore: The weather was beautifully warm so I pulled out a kimono from H&M and paired it with trousers and a blouse from the LOFT, pumps from Nine West, and a gifted cross body from Nordstrom.
