Nancy Buchanan and Cathleen Bottini are homegirls — literally.
Friday marks the official opening of NAC for Style, a Lakeview atelier they describe as a “prototype of a stylish life.”
After wardrobe consulting together for years and collecting garments along the way, the duo rented a sunny apartment with a view of the Music Box Theatre.
They tricked it out with vintage, hand-cut crystal chandeliers; graphic pillows; upholstered velvet chairs; geometric mirrors; colorful lamps; Vogue prints that Buchanan picked up in Paris; and a closetful of designer clothing and accessories (Chanel clogs, deco-style jewelry, Pucci skirt, vintage sequin evening bags). Everything is for sale.
Buchanan and Bottini are generously inviting DailyCandy readers to book after-hours appointments to check out the goods.
That’s what friends are for.
NAC for Style, 3732 North Southport Avenue, between Grace Street and Waveland Avenue. Official launch, Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m. For an after-hours appointment, email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
