    When the temperature drops in Chicago, some things need to heat up.

    Good thing Steven Shein (the LA-based jewelry designer who's accessorizing celebs like Paris, Mischa, Avril and Shakira) is making a sexy splash in Chicago this week.

    In true West Coast form, his newest collection is unlike anything Chicago has yet to sport. The collection boasts '80s rocker-inspired and contemporary-hippie accessories, made of high-quality laser cut plastic and acrylic in funky, bright colors.

    Have something to say? Let Shein say it for you (he's not shy). If you're still in love with "Obama," feeling like a "Psycho Bitch," or just want to tell the world you're "Rad," then Steven's got a necklace, a ring or a bracelet just for you.

    Famous for his colorful and bright accessories and his artistic play on pop-culture, a Steven Shein piece -- whether it be a character ring, a graphic ring, a mini text necklace or bangles -- is sure to be the center of attention of your outfit.

    Style mavens who dwell on self-expression can adorn themselves in Shein's work, too. He also customizes his pieces to say exactly what you want them to.

    This weekend, meet the designer in person, speak your mind and walk away with a handmade, personal accessory (or three). Shein will be making an in-store appearance at Sofia Vintage (1165 N Clark, Suite 400), where his line is exclusively sold, on Saturday.

    But if you want to party with the uber-cool designer and receive a 15 percent off coupon to redeem at Sofia, check out The 44th Ward Dinner Party (3542 N Halsted St.) on Friday the 13th. The event, hosted by CheekyChicago, boasts a Steven Shein trunk show, free appetizers, drink specials and more.

    Party starts at 9 p.m. Be there or be un-rad.
