Violet Revolution & TheWorkingWardrobe Style Up Holiday-Wear at Chicago’s Cerato Boutique

by Rachel Yeomans | December 22nd, 2010   

‘Tis the season of holiday parties and gatherings, and many times not enough outfits to go around! Therefore a fellow blogger, Nancy Cooper of Violet Revolution, and I decided to get together at one of our favorite Chicago boutiques, Cerato, and showcase some fun holiday attire for the occasion! I dressed Nancy in two work-appropriate party looks for the holiday season, and Nancy styled me in something to kick up my heels in for a night on the town!

What was so much fun about this video was working with two businesses that I have phenomenal respect for! Violet Revolution is one of my favorite fashion blogs, and Nancy does a tremendous job in providing fashion news, how-to’s and Q&A’s to the fashion community, with a special shout-out to us Chicago fashionistas. You can also check out her Facebook page and follow her on Twitter for further fashion insight!

With similar ‘city-pride’, I first discovered Cerato when walking past its storefront and recognizing some local designer items in the window! They carry designers from all areas, but they make sure to pay special heed to our local talent. What’s not to love about that?! In fact, we shot the video during the last day of their ’12 Days of Christmas’ event featuring Chicago jewelry designer, Jules, who was kind enough to deck us out in her bling to complete our holiday looks!
