Problem: Maria Pinto has really good taste.
I fell for Fall.
Well, really I fell in love with Maria Pinto's version of Fall fashion. It is as cozy and crisp as a glass of apple cider.
Last night, I met the Chicago designer and now creative director of Mark Shale. She was fabulous (as were her sassy upturned cat eye glasses). She detailed our her Autumnal must haves to a crowd of bloggers and shoppers.
Pinto and her team have revamped the Chicago fashion staple with new brands and a refined approach to fashion. She talked about wardrobe building with signature pieces or classics. The store is packed with clean lines, rich cashmere (loving the Mark Shale cashmere long cardigans), and zippy twists.
