Local designer Azeeza Kahn is offering beautifully detailed, bejeweled goods for a song this week. On Wednesday, Azza at the 900 Shops will host its first-ever sample sale. Yep, it's a Christmas miracle.
Bridal and evening dresses will be marked down by up to 80 percent (New Year's Eve, anyone?), and all-new holiday goods—including embellished tees, day dresses, and cocktail frocks—will be discounted by 50 percent or more. There will also be refreshed stock for the holiday items that previously sold out, including iphone cases, embellished beanies, and what has to be the most haute earmuffs in town: Azza's are made of fox fur, and decked with crystals.
The sale opens at 10 a.m., and at 6 p.m. some Chi-town tastemakers will stop by to offer styling advice. Our advice? Get there early—and at least try those earmuffs on.
