Have you ever been so star-struck that you can’t even say hello? Well that happened to me this past Friday night at the Manolo Blahnik event at Barney’s NY. Manolo Blahnik is pretty much my ultimate celebrity; my love is deep for the man’s pumps. While I was totally bummed that he wouldn’t sign one of my shoeboxes – I did get a lovely picture with him alongside Blair, Christine & Lindsay. Check out my Instagram for more photos from the event! The rest of the night was spent getting drinks (many drinks…) at The Drawing Room and ended with a late dinner at Jellyfish. I highly recommend both places if you are ever in downtown Chicago area.
While my original plan was to wear my favorite floral dress to the event, however the chill of the Chicago wind won out in the end. Nice jeans it was going to have to be. I found this old express jacket tucked back in my closet and paired it with my favorite cashmere sweater. Light layers almost made walking outside bearable.
