Big things are happening over at Fashionista Chicago. The local style blog has undergone a redesign, and there's a little something extra. "We added a bit of e-commerce to the website to encourage our readers to shop," said proprietor Nicki Brashear. "Since we talk about the designers and their pieces in our blog posts or our interviews, we wanted to make it easier for our readers to get the great product then and there."
The featured products are exclusive to Fashionista Chicago, or are limited edition. Items include a box of Valentine's-themed truffles from Katherine Anne Confections ($60), a gold-plated cuff bracelet from VenezArt ($55), and a leather envelope computer sleeve from C/Fan ($98.)
Splash recently launched e-commerce with its SplashShop, and Shred415 is going to delve into it soon (check back for more news on that.) And you know what they say about three: we're calling "trend."
