Week One: #CaliforniaDreaming
Week Two: #PrettyInPink
Week Three: #SunsetGlam
Week Four: #JuicyBeachBabes

Below are some pictures of my Jersey Bengal Print Dress, currently on sale at Juicy Couture. My look is for this week, #SunsetGlam. Living in Chicago I wish it were a little warmer, as this hashtag only makes me want warmer weather more. So if I look cold in my picture it's because I am, and it's about 28 degrees outside. At least there wasn't any snow. 


I love the cute lace detail on the collar. And the best part of the dress…it has pockets! The print is not too over the top, and with a cute black belt cinched at the waist and gold clutch my outfit is complete. (Don't forget cute shoes - Aerosoles Ginerator Sandal from DSW.com).

SJP at Nordstrom - Chicago

So I posted earlier, Sarah Jessica Parker – aka SJP, stopped by the great city of Chicago on Friday. She’s here launching her new shoe collection (along with some handbags and apparel) available exclusively at Nordstrom. Again the shoes range from $195-$485. I was actually surprised at the number of different style that was available in the collection, all screaming out different personalities. 

I did arrive a little late (I’ll blame it on the flat tire I had to get fixed before being able to drive into the city). It was quite a busy atmosphere. Everyone was there to buy a pair of SJPs in hopes of getting Sarah Jessica Parker to sign their shoes. The crowd was able to officially line up starting at 3:30pm, I arrived around 4pm, but still had to find a pair of shoes that I liked…in my size. The shoe I wanted, SJP 'Stella' Sandal , was available in my size, but because it was a display item, the partner and box were missing. Nowhere to be found. That of course added to my wait time. I had to find a back up pair of shoes. I went with the SJP 'Inez' Wedge Espadrille in Navy. I like the shoe, but I had really wanted a cute strappy heel. Alas I paid and made my way to the back of the line.

It was a good crowd. Everyone was talking to each other trying to see what shoes each picked. In the crowd of 10 ladies no two had the same shoe, which was nice because we were able to compare them. SJP was to be there from 4:30-5:30pm, but she stretched her time to about 6:30pm, leaving only to catch an 8pm flight. Unfortunately for me and about 100 other people, yes there were a lot of fans there; we didn't make the cut off. But we were all able to catch a glimpse of her as she left the store. She’s so tiny, petite, and cute. I love her! Maybe next time she’s in town…


On a side note I did return the shoes. Since she didn't sign them I opted to just order the shoes I really wanted online. Happy Shopping!

Sarah Jessica Parker Personal Appearance in Chicago - Nordstrom

It’s been well over 10 years since we've seen Sarah Jessica Parker (SJP) as Carrie, but we can’t help and reminisce about all the good times we all had watching her on HBO. I probably fell in love with shoes I couldn't have or walk in thanks to Carrie!

Now SJP is ready to launch her own shoes. Now women can say they want a pair of SJP shoes. I know I do. And tomorrow, March 7, SJP will be making an appearance in Chicago at Nordstrom Michigan Avenue Flagship store from 4:30-5:30 pm. Here’s your chance to score some shoes and a chance to meet SJP and maybe even get an autograph or picture. Shoes range from $195 to about $400. Please note customers who make an SJP purchase will have the opportunity to meet Sarah Jessica and have their purchase signed. Proof of purchase must be shown. The opportunity to meet Sarah Jessica will be on a first come, first served basis and as time allows. Good luck to anyone who attends!
