On Sunday afternoon, my husband Jeff and I left for the Windy City. We arrived there and checked into a lovely boutique hotel right downtown called the Whitehall Inn. We took a walk down Michigan Avenue and then dressed up for a dinner cruise that we had been invited to by Jasmine Bridal. (That's me in my red dress and fabulous "Mae" necklace from MEG Jewelry)
On Monday morning, Rachel and Mauricio met us at the hotel, where we had breakfast and then shopped the Jasmine showroom. Then we traveled to the Merchandise Mart to look at Casablanca, Justin Alexander, Maggie Sottero, and Essense of Australia. It was a full day! We celebrated on Monday evening at Fogo de Chao, a Brazilian steakhouse in Downtown Chicago.
Tuesday morning, we made another trip to the Merchandise Mart to shop for veils and accessories. SO MUCH FUN! The other photo above is Rachel, modeling a new hairpiece from Jennifer Leigh. We loved some of the new things that Jennifer had designed; some great new concepts in veils!!
Our last stop was to see our friend and FABULOUS jewelry designer, Meg Lammers. Meg had even managed to design some new peices between our trunk show a week and a half ago and the Market! She's a wonder-woman.
So, there's our recap. I can't wait for you to come into the store and see the beautiful new items that will be arriving.
September's Bride...a fresh approach to formal.
