Owner, eDrop-Off Express
Corri Mcfadden is impossible not to love. It's nothing that need concern her boyfriend and Centaur Chief Executive Officer, Spiro Tsaparas, but when Kerry & Sally Shorr of Luxe File Chicago developed the list of talented, fashion-focused women they wanted to ask about their five essentials for Spring '11, naturally the young, visionary entrepreneur and founder of eDrop-Off Express was at the top. Within minutes of our initial email, Corri came back with her picks, complete with descriptive copy and links. It read like a mandatory list of "Must Haves" VOGUE's visionary Tonne Goodman might have written - über-stylish and all in very good taste. See her selections below.
On a side note, Luxe File Chicago loves Palm Beach. This alway-chic, seaside destination not only boasts exquisite fashion, it plays hostess to some of the most coveted vintage and consignment shops in the country, where magazine editors, fashion gurus and the town's style set all flock to fill their magazines and closets with some of the most notable names in the history of fashion. Now, LFC has found an easy fix for our vintage and consignment cravings - eDrop-Off Express. A virtual paradise for cult fashion groupies, it is where any on-the-go girl and guy goes to shop for never-to-gently worn designer duds, in-store or online. Don't forget eDrop-Off Express also offers a list of services including designer consignment, pick-up & drop-offs, closet cleanups and more. Check out the eDrop-Off Express store at 2117 N. Halsted or the pop-up location in the Gold Coast at 1155 N. State, which is scheduled to open on March 28.
Corri Mcfadden's Top 5 Spring Essentials:
Proenza Schouler PS1 Small Leather Satchel in Yellow. I already have the large black suede PS1 bag and it's the perfect carryall. When you tend to stick to black and neutrals like me, an easy way to incorporate color is with a bold bag like this yellow satchel.
Christian Louboutin Denim Rollerboy Loafers. These are the perfect everyday spring shoe. The denim is a little more casual than the black leather and the studs are just a great way to spruce up an outfit. I could wear these to work and out to events as well.
Gucci Spring 2011 Purple Pants. Gucci was one of my favorite Spring collections because they showed a lot of colorblocking in chic and sophisticated ways. These pants are great to wear with a black bodysuit and lots of accessories or keep with the colorblock trend and pair with a tangerine top and bright pumps.
Alexander McQueen Cotton Skull Scarf. A lightweight scarf is a must-have for Spring. I absolutely love Alexander McQueen and a skull print scarf is just an easy way to accessorize a casual outfit.
Rachel Gilbert Addison Sequined Cotton Mini Dress. This is the perfect dress I can wear with a light blazer and leggings during the day or dress it up with my YSL Tribute pumps for an evening event.
