[Chicago Fashion Event] AKIRA Chicago's 10th Annual Fall Fashion Show!

Every year for the last 10 years AKIRA Chicago  has wow'd the Chicago fashion scene with their stellar fashion productions.  It's no hidden secret that it's one of city's best fashion parties to look forward too every year.  This year's fashion show themed 'Metropolitan' will feature 5 distinctly different runway shows that will highlight what to wear to work, to lunch, to dinner, out on the town, etc.  As a regular on the "L" Train it's so refreshing to see how AKIRA Chicago will interpret fashions of the modern city chic.  This Saturday, September 22nd is the last day to snag a ticket (purchase here).

 Now, if you are like me the next important question is "What am I going to wear to AKIRA Chicago's 10th Annual fashion show?"  This question is usually followed by another set of questions that I can answer for you with one simple answer: start with your what's going to be on your feet.  Fall's biggest footwear trend is all about the bootie.  Keeping this in mind I decided to strictly focus on this silhouette when I went to visit AKIRA Chicago's Bucktown location on North Avenue.

Perusing the entire store looking for the 'one' for what seemed like hours I narrowed in on these 3 Michael Antonio booties (pictured below).  All three equally represent key fall trends: glitter & shine, jewel tone hues, and embellishments & adornments.


After much deliberation and a great consultation from the ladies at AKIRA Chicago, I finally settled in on the black velvet 'Maple'.  I'm a huge fan of a a great stacked heel and anytime metal is infused as an adornment it's almost always a done deal.  I mean seriously, once I noticed the metal my swoon-o-meter was slightly beginning to ding and then it was officially over once I finally settled in and began to take notice of the boots amazing details.  Buckles, holographic snake skin foiled platform and heel & suede--my swoon-o-meter was off the charts!

See what other amazing finds I discovered at AKIRA Chicago on my visit.  Definitely start here in assembling your ensemble for the 'Metropolitan' Fall Fashion Show :
