Chicago's FNO Recap

I started my bar hop Fashion's Night Out at Water Tower Place at the "In Fashion Lounge,"  complete with gift bag, DJ, cocktails, and M Burgers.

Next I went down a few levels to Macy's and met The Girls of Lincoln Park, very sweet and stylish ladies.  Check out their blog.
Live music at Free People. 
A little taste of Italy with wine and music. 

I then headed over to the 900 Shops.  I had no plan, just headed up the escalator to the sound of chatter and music. 
What do you know!  I got into walked right into the VIP section filled with socialites, bites, cocktails and where a fashion show was soon to take place hosted by Ali Larter (loved her in Heroes).
I took a ton of pictures of the looks but I'll only show my favorites.  Again, lots of leather and burgundy shown for this Fall.

Video of the final walk:

After the fashion show I rushed off to Saks Fifth Avenue to see what was going on there.  DJ, manicures, drinks, and pretty people, dominated the scene here.

It occurred to me I'd better get a snap of my outfit.  So here ya go, me in the Saks bathroom.  So glam I am.   I wanted to be comfortable as I scooted along Michigan Avenue, and I'm so glad I chose flats instead of heels.
Zara Leather Trimmed Top, Zara Bag, DV Dolce Vita Oxfords, Larry Levin Pants, Park Lane Earrings

For my last stop I made a beeline for Nordstrom before it closed.  The aisles of The Shops of Northbridge were lined with fashionable models in equally fashionable settings.

Nordstrom didn't shut down til 9:00 (others closed at 8) so I had plenty of time for another cocktail, more music, and some sweet bites all courtesy of Cole Haan.
How fierce is this dress!

This was so refreshingly good!

After that I did head home.  I must say, Chicago really stepped their game up for FNO this year.  This is my 3rd FNO and I believe next year will be even better.
Hope you enjoyed my recap.
