With the new year in full swing, we can’t forget to neglect Pantone’s 2013 Color of the Year: Emerald! The dazzling jewel tone has been spotted everywhere from the runway to the red carpet. Whether it’s a night out on the town in BCBG or weekend shopping in an Alice + Olivia silk blouse, adding a touch of emerald to your everyday is a perfect yet simple way to stay on trend this year.

We are happy to announce we’ve teamed up with one of our favorite ladies, the one and only Tory Burch. If you haven’t heard, the designer has opened her second flagship store here in Chicago at 45 Oak where Katie and I stopped by last week.
The new store is full of bold and classic Tory colors made to please the eye. Must we also suggest Tory’s Blog where she not only provides a dose of inspiration, but also includes her favorite city guides which naturally includes Chicago. We picked two fabulous restaurants off of Tory’s Chicago restaurant list and paired our favorite TB items that we would wear to each restaurant.
I picked out this fabulous Margee blouse and camel clutch. Perfect for the day to night transition. I picked this combo to wear to the infamous Girl and the Goat located in the West Loop. A must order, their grilled chef creek oysters.
Katie got the most adorable leopard print Brooke dress and paired it with the orange patent Robinson envelope clutch. How perfect are the two together? She would wear this to Chicago’s southern comfort food hot spot, Table 52. We highly suggest ordering Chef Art Smith’s fried chicken and waffles.

Wednesday night, we were invited to attend Tory Burch’s first exclusive runway show (second ever) here in Chicago at the Field Museum. We had a great time rubbing elbows with friends, both old and new, and DJ Cassidy had us bumpin to some of our favorite tunes. The mood overall was fabulous and we must say, TB did not disappoint. Her 2012 Spring collection is nothing short of divine with bold colors and prints to satisfy anyone’s color craving after a long winter. Below are some of our favorite pieces from the collection. For more behind-the-scenes looks and pictures from Wednesday night be sure to check out our Tory pinboard! Enjoy! - GOLP
