Sophie's at Saks Fifth Avenue

we get excited talking about american fashion designers. why? because so many don't come from america.

we also get excited when chicago gets something that no other city gets. enter in: sophie's at saks fifth avenue. meet: sophie gimbal, an american fashion designer and the leading designer and innovator of the "new look" that became popular after world war II. the "new look" she introduced was about simple elegance and using more expensive fabrics. very easy to wear and practical.

sitting at sophie's yesterday for lunch kind of gives you that 'pinch me' moment because it's so beautifully decorated with amazing views of michigan avenue. the service is spot on (love the red lip the female servers rock!), food is impeccably presented & delicious (roasted red pepper soup is a must), and it's quiet in a non creepy, yes i don't have to whisper way. in a way it reminds us of barney's ny greengrass room in beverly hills (thanks to skinny buddha for always taking us there when we were little)!

whether you're shopping at saks or just wanting to meet a friend for lunch somewhere fabulous, check out sophie's. sophie gimbel liked her wardrobe "simple, correct, perfect in every detail." and the sophie's dining experience is no different.

be sure to get the arnold palmer... the presentation alone is a+!
