LORI'S UPDATE: Sweet Valentines

It's just two weeks until our favorite mid-February holiday, do you have sweets for your sweetie? Do you have something sweet yet for you?!

We like to indulge ourselves during the month of love, from deliciously yummy big stone accessories to charming and sweet silver jewelry.

Of course, at Lori's indulgence doesn't mean you have to spend big bucks. We have so many great pieces and many are under $25! Here are some of our recommendations:

1. Positivity Bracelet, $22
In addition to being a great Valentines piece, the Positivity bracelet is an inspiring trend that's sweeping the nation. Wear the red (a negative color) on your negative hand to create a positive aura, and let a special someone know you're behind them all the way.

2. Crystal Heart Necklace, $18
Trust us, big stones are in. And what better way to play-up a fun trend this month than with an oversized crystal heart? Our tip: pair it with an equally large rhinestone bracelet.

3. Silver Heart Bracelet, $18
Not all Valentines gestures need to be bold in color or large in size. With this classic Tiffany look-a-like, our little silver heart bracelet will tell you sweetheart exactly how you feel.

Sweet, appetizing and utterly yummy, Anne Klein's Cup Cake is everything a delicious treat should be – even when it's a treat for feet!

This little patent dream is being scooped up by Lori's Armitage shoppers, making it this week's hot seller. And question surrounding this piece of indulgence isn't whether or not to consume it; it's, "Which color should I get?!"
Shoppers have the choice of black patent, always a classic selection and we love the way the white stitching contrasts, or mauve, one of the hottest colors for Spring '07.

Lori's thinks you can't go wrong with either one, as this shoe's decadence lies in its details (how great is that buckle!).

A rich and delish treat that goes straight to our feet (and only our feet...)? Thanks, Anne Klein!

STYLE WATCH: Big stones

The skin was radiant, the hair was perfect and the dresses were gorgeous. But you know what really stood out among the starlets at this week’s Golden Globe gala?

Big. Shiny. Attention-grabbing jewelry.

And it wasn't just a single piece, either. We saw layered stones; we saw fabulous oversized necklaces paired with equally fabulous and large bracelets (on both hands, no less!). And we loved it (shall we call it Gaudy Glam?)!

Of course, Lori's is here for your trendy wants with perfect pieces at perky prices ($34 and under!).

LORI'S UPDATE: Let it snow!

...and snow... and snow

Our Midwestern friends, including us Second City gals, were recently faced with the first winter weather of the New Year and we're expecting more soon. Oh no!

But if you haven't gotten your winter boots yet, don't worry. Lori's has only started to heat up. We still have many snow-worthy (and equally fabulous!) boots, including several styles from UGG and La Canadienne!

So before you get stuck out in the cold again, come visit us. We can protect your feet from the chilly air, all while keeping them appropriately city chic. Hurrah!

TREND WATCH: Spring '07

Need relief from winter? Visit Lori's, where we're giving shoppers a sneak peak into spring's footwear fashions. Yay!

If you're one of Lori's ladies looking for a spring break, here's what you'll find on tap:

Whether it's black and white or pastel, this season's floral prints are big and bold. We love it! Check out Moda Spana's glamorous sandals, or Sondra Roberts flower tote in patent.

Metallics will be hot, too, and we're not just talking about gold and silver here. Bronze and pewter accessories are some of this season's favorites, we like Penny Loves Kenny's 7 UP in bronze.

Nautical themes
From cuffed shorts and sailor pants to primary colors and stripes, nautical themes had a big presence on the spring '07 runways. Let us help you achieve the look with sea-worthy canvas flats and nautical jewelry (coming soon!).

A trend that comes straight from Europe, woven leathers offer the perfect mix of casual wear and sophistication. Lori's is lovin' Medici's handmade flat in tan.

THIS WEEK'S HOT LIST: Eric Michael is hot!

Our Lincoln Park ladies have decided it's time to kick of the snow boots, get a pedicure and treat themselves to a luscious pair of sandals. How do we now?

Because the Eric Michael Denise has risen to the top of this week’s hot list!

The sandal, which combines a ribbon detailed silky upper with a roped sole, is so charming and pretty, who wouldn't swoon at its sight?

Plus, it's uber comfortable with its luxe leather lining and easy-going slingback. In other words, the Denise is a very vacation-worthy little dish.

If you like the flirty look of the Denise but need a bit more height, check out some of Eric Michael's fab espadrilles like the Leyla, Bow or Monika.

Until next week!
