Actress-entrepreneur Kristin Cavallari was on hand Saturday morning in Chicago’s tony West Loop for the grand opening of her latest Uncommon James location.

Joining Cavallari was husband and former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler.

In an interview with the Sun-Times earlier this week, Cavallari said the store will feature some items from her Little James baby and kids clothing line and limited home decor, but will primarily feature her “effortless and affordable jewelry” line (all priced at under $100).

Fans were lined up down the block and around the corner in the cold morning air to be among the first to shop the boutique chain, which serves as the storyline for “Very Cavallari,” the reality show on the E! Network that stars Cavallari and Cutler.

Here’s a first look at the Chicago location of Uncommon James at 849 W. West Randolph:
