    How often have you purchased a to-die-for dress (or top, or coat, get it), only to realize that, out of the dressing room light, it doesn't look as fabulous as you thought? Optimism can turn to defeat when you realize that your new trousers actually don't make your butt look great. Enter the fresh label Isoude, a line that truly gets it. Designer Kate Brierley specializes in working personally with clients, and in making sure that each piece in her collection truly fits and flatters each of her customers. She'll be stopping by Neapolitan Collection in Winnetka this week to preview her newest designs, and help you get the best bang for your buck, fit-wise. The best part? Every single one of Isoude's pieces are made in the good ol' US of A, and they're eco-friendly, natch. We asked Brierley what she was most excited to show Chicago shoppers, and as expected, she's got our tastes all figured out. "Women look to Isoude for various reasons, either they need that chic uniform piece that seems great for a million occasions, or some women just love to collect our special limited edition pieces. The process is really intimate, we take measurements, pick out made to order pieces together, and this is something we love to do." Still need convincing? Click through for a sneak peek at the designer's trunk show offerings.

    When: Wednesday, May 16 and Thursday, May 17, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
    Where: Neapolitan Collection, 715 Elm Street (at Arbor Vitae Road); 847-441-7784.
