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.

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.

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.
