FASHION CONFESSIONS: BELA GANDHI Life Coach

Bela Gandhi has been connecting people all of her life. As well as having an extensive career in life coaching she is also the founder of Smart Dating Academy, a dating coaching service for busy professionals. Called "The Fairy Godmother of Dating" by the Huffington Post, Bela is also a contributor to Today’s Chicago Woman and has been featured as a dating and relationship expert for Windy City Live, the Chicago Tribune and WGN-TV. Bela resides in Chicago, and has been happily married for 15 years with 2 children.
WHAT’S YOUR FASHION ADDICTION?
As for clothing, I love simple pieces with one "edgy" element. Maybe an unexpected ruffle, an asymmetrical sleeve, something :) I love flipping through InStyle or Vogue as I'm sitting on a plane - my guilty pleasure!

HOW WOULD YOU DEFINE CHICAGO'S FASHION STYLE?
Stylish with a sense of sensibility!

WHAT DOES FASHION MEAN TO YOU?
Fashion means dressing so that you feel gorgeous, inside and out.

WHAT’S THE MOST PRIZED POSSESSION IN YOUR CLOSET?
A grey wool Prada outer coat that is so beautiful, I often wear it as a blazer. And, the best, most flattering LBD ever which I picked up at TJ Maxx.

WHICH DESIGNERS DO YOU WORSHIP?
Badgley Mischka –they've never made a gown I didn't like.

BEST BEAUTY TIP YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED?
The Japanese hair straightener for my bad Indian hair. And, the best liner for brown eyes is blue –adds sizzle with a pop of color.

FASHIONABLE DISCOVERIES: Derek Lam Spring 2013 Collection

Back in Oct I was invited by Neiman Marcus to attend an exclusive fashion presentation of Derek Lam’s Spring 2013 collection. Held at The Arts Club Chicago and hosted by the fabulous the Ken Downing (Neiman Marcus Fashion Director) his special guest was none other than the designer himself!

Neiman Marcus's Derek Lam invite


Ken Downing interviewing Derek Lam. “Clean, just really clean,” said Derek about his spring collection. “I wanted her to feel comfortable and look comfortable.” The collection was modern and cool pairing his clean shapes with interesting fabrics (guipure lace) or patterns (plaid). My personal favs were all the beautiful leather pieces, like the one below.

GET THE LOOK: Anna Wintour

For last 5 years Anna Wintour hasn’t been seen without her Georgian collet necklaces, it’s now become her new trademark. These beautiful antique chokers with semiprecious gemstones start at $2,000 –not affordable to us mere mortals. But no need to despair J.Crew has come to the rescue with these beautiful crystal necklaces with a more affordable price tag.
