Last week, I stopped by the new Kendra Scott store at 900 North Michigan Avenue in Chicago with Maya and Mitch (#trooper), and was so impressed. I couldn’t get over how bright and beautiful the space was, and how elegantly the merchandise was displayed there. I also loved catching up with my girl Maddie, Kendra Scott’s Chicago Community Relations and Event Manager. (She’s the cutest!)
I think my favorite part of the new store is the “Color Bar,” where shoppers can design their own pieces in real time. Employees create the customized necklaces, bracelets and earrings then and there, allowing customers to take their masterpieces home right away. Amazing, right!? Perfect for weddings and bridal parties, and last-minute presents and events. You can order online through the Color Bar, too!
I also love the fact that the store allows for shopping parties (during which you bring your friends to the Michigan Avenue location for special in-store shopping experiences) and trunk shoes (during which Kendra Scott brings the party to you). So fun!
In terms of the jewelry itself, it’s hard for me to choose a #1 piece. I’m a huge fan of the classic Rayne necklace in navy, turquoise and white… but I also adore these magenta studs, these logo studs, this gold bracelet, this long gold necklace, and this gold pendant necklace. Swoon.
The next time you’re in downtown Chicago, be sure to stop by the new store. And shop my other favorites below!
