I can't even begin to talk about all that I've been up to lately. As a super short recap, I (finally!) landed my first full-time, paid job and I honestly couldn't be happier. I work at a boutique PR firm and my boss just might be the coolest and nicest person ever. It's been about a month and I am LOVING it. Everyday is different - exciting meetings, interesting people, creative brainstorms. It keeps me on my toes and I interact with some pretty mind-blowing people on a daily basis. To say the least, I feel so lucky to be in this position.
On another note, I was invited to this intimate and totally creative event a couple weeks ago. Cadillac hosted a fashion-savvy crowd in their new Luxury Lounge just outside of Nordstrom in The Shops at North Bridge on Michigan Ave. A Cadillac representative was there to introduce the new (and totally sleek) ATS model, and shortly after, a Nordstrom personal stylist highlighted fall's hottest trends with the help of a few models. As if I wasn't already excited enough to do some fall shopping, the Nordstrom stylist amped up my shopping ambitions with some well put together looks. (My favorite featured a pair of to-die-for Miu Miu heels with a surprise element - glitter on the back of the heel!) Drinks and small bites were served, and I have to say, the food was delish. From the shiny car to the bold fashions to the luxurious feel of the lounge (which is open for shoppers to rest, plug in and recharge, literally), the event was a mix of lust-worthy items that had me wanting more.
The cherry on top of the event was the $100 Nordstrom gift card I won by live-tweeting from the event. I'd like to say I saved the certificate for some Christmas shopping, but I admittedly (but not guiltily!) spent it on a kick-ass (again, literally) pair of Vince Camuto black spiked booties that I'd been eyeing for months.
Thanks for the invite and to all the participants! Well done:)
All in all, I'd say it was a successful night. Here are the pics (courtesy of MSL Chicago) to prove it!
