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!
