Chicago Fashion Soirée


I love being a part of Windy City Blogger Collective, a fun organization that provides great events and opportunities for Chicago bloggers. WCBC threw a fun holiday shopping party recently at Del Frisco's in downtown Chicago. It had a great turnout, with fashion, beauty, food and travel bloggers alike! There were fun stations to get made over, with Dream Dry doing ladies' hair and Benefit giving makeup touchups.

In addition to the beauty stations, there was plenty of room for fashion and style. My love for clothing and accessories at Renaissance Girl was in good company, because there were some gorgeous stands of fashionable clothes, pretty jewelry and cute accessories.

Not only did I get my hair curled by Dream Dry and my eyeliner touched up by Benefit, I indulged in some great fare! Drink Fashionably made a delicious punch which was so decadent that it was topped with rose petals! There were also little hors d'oeuvres and dessert bites, in addition to delicious red wine and champagne courtesy of Del Frisco's. Cheers to the holidays!
