Brunch, Fashion, and Bottomless Mimosas... probably the BEST combo ever! Who do I have to thank for brining all that into my world? Sarca and Nieves Lavi! What is Sarca? Sarca is a fabulous boutique in Chicago which I recently stumbled upon when I was hunting down a beautiful pair of Penelope and Coco wedges, which you will see me rocking as soon as it's warm out and I get myself a long awaited pedicure. What is Nieves Lavi? Nieves Lavi is an amazing label from the minds of Sam Nieves Velez and Sharon Lavi. I had a great time viewing a sampling of their new collection at a gorgeous new restaurant in Chicago, The Boarding House. It was an intimate setting in their main dining room which made for a perfect place to view the colorful silk and printed fabrics from the Nieves Lavi Spring Summer collection. So here we go. Sarca x Nieves Lavi Fashion Show.
How amazing is the ceiling? Thousands of dark green wine bottles hang suspended and act like a gigantic chandelier.

An amazing apple and greens salad. The waiter kept trying to take it away from me because I was taking my time and savoring each bite. Haha.
The show starts and I am instantly engulfed in color and prints. Made me wish summer was here!
LOVED this one! The color and detailing is exquisite!
I could not stop drooling over the amazing jewelry from Damen + Division. How sick is this necklace?! Ugh.. I NEEEED!
My favorite piece were these adorable shorts. How perfect are they for a day on the beach?!
Thank you to Sarca and Nieves Lavi for such a fun way to spend a Sunday afternoon. With spring around the corner, the collection made me want to incorporate a lot more color and prints into my extensive wardrobe. As I'm writing this, I'm looking at my racks and thinking, why is everything so dark?! Hahaha. And I highly recommend stopping into The Boarding House for a meal. It's so gorgy-pants in there! Being there during the day with all the natural light pouring in from the giant windows really makes you appreciate the space and the work they put into their decor. Immediately after walking in, I guarantee you will stare at the over 9,000 wine glass fixture suspended in the air. The usual reaction is, mouth drops open, "WOW", then out comes your phone, CLICK, and BAM... Instagrammed. Absolutely amazing venue. I can't wait to go back and try some more dishes.
