Whitney Port to host Chicago fashion event “Design Your Life”

Next month Whitney Port will be in Chicago and hosting a lifestyle event and seminar. She will host an interactive conversation with the guests about how to balance the challenges of building a successful career and also a well-rounded life. There will be a question and answer session, which should be fairly interesting. I know I have many questions that I could ask her, so I hope that the people who do get called to ask questions have some good ones lined up.

This could be a fun event before shopping season really becomes overwhelming. I like that there will be free cocktails. Seriously though, Whitney Port is actually one of the celeb-reality TV stars that I actually like and it is nice that her event has a somewhat empowering context rather than the usual “Hey, watch me walk into a club!” that Chicago is left with being somewhere between New York and LA.

I’m actually excited for Whitney Port to come to Chicago and host a genuine event. If you do decide to go or even if you like the idea, post this article on your social media and spread the love. Thanks:)

“Behind the Seams” – @Marshalls

A small group of fashion bloggers were invited to listen to Alison Deyette, a well known shopping and fashion expert, talk about how Marshalls and TJ Maxx are able to offer such low prices on designer fashions and other trendy products. Some myths were dispelled and some facts were revealed.

Marshalls carries the exact same quality of clothes as the department stores, often times with an additional variety of colors or patterns. Also, 95% of what is carried in any Marshalls store is “in season”. So, Marshalls does NOT carry past season stuff that the designers couldn’t sell.

The reason Marshalls can offer you in-season designer clothes at up to 75% off department store pricing is buying power. Marshalls protects their buying power with the designers by making low prices a priority above designer branding and by paying designers up-front without buy-backs. This along with some great customers and large volume make Marshalls the perfect place for designers to sell their products… and a great place for consumers to check out before they spend a wad of cash at a department store.
