Masina & Co. Pre-Derby Trunk Show & Launch Party

Accessories are truly the hallmark of a great outfit.  Whether you’re wearing a $30 dress or a $300 one, the right accessories will always take your look to the next level.  And nothing else, expresses individual personality and style perspective better (except perhaps a killer pair of shoes). As a committed accessory wearer, I was pleased to attend the Masina & Co. Pre-Derby Trunk Show & Launch Party held at the upscale RM Champagne Salon on Saturday in Chicago’s West Loop.  Masina & Co. is an online company that specializes in fashion and bridal accessories, with offerings for both ladies and gents.
In the spirit of the events' Pre-Kentucky Derby theme, attendees were treated to Masina Julep cocktails (a take on the mint julep) and cupcakes by pastry favorite Sprinkles, while shopping amongst the mix of just-in-time-for-the-Derby hats and fascinators, women’s fashion pieces, and neckwear for men.   

Unfortunately, once I arrived at the event, heavy camera (DLSR) in tow, I realized the battery was dead.  Yes, that happened.  Thus, I had to use my camera phone to give a sample of Masina offers.
I was particularly fond of the ladies headwear and bridal pieces.
For the fellas
I really loved the Men's neckwear, particularly the bow ties.  Men's slim ties are also available.

I purchased a fabulous necklace that will be featured on a future post.  And because I made a purchase, I was gifted with a nicely appointed swag bag which included a piece of Masina jewelry.  Love that.   
 Classy touch for a classy event.
