A Day on Michigan Avenue, plus the new Gift Gallery @ Neiman Marcus

A Day on Michigan Avenue....

For those that don't know (or haven't checked my Facebook page for the info)  I have 2 part time positions working as a retail merchandiser.  One for a designer eyewear company, the other for a London based neckwear line....

I love that I still get to be in the current fashion world, but can also gear my vintage collection towards the here and now....  Modern styling meets vintage fashion... a great combo, don't you think?!

Today I did some merchandising for a few of my accounts... then met up with my friend Mark, who had an invite to the Swarvoski boutique on Michigan Avenue and a book signing by diva Jacqui Stafford.  

Before we made it to the party, I went onto the 4th floor to spy the NEW gift gallery... WOW oh WOW!  It is amazing, to say the least!  Bright, clean, easy to shop... a welcome change... (see pics below)

















Meet some great people and did some networking at the Swarovski party.   Drank some wine and had a few nibbles... then headed over to my FAVORITE restaurant in Chicago, Bandera for a late dinner.   Roasted chicken with potatoes and the cheese and chips to start is always a winner if you are downtown and want to go someplace cozy, elegant, and inviting without breaking the bank!

Here are a few of the pics from my cell at the book signing....  too much schmoozing going on to concentrate on being a paparazzi, but you can see it was a full house, and a great evening!
