Wow!! This year went by so fast. I can’t believe it is time for my yearly Chicago trip again!! This was my best year ever!! I signed up two more stores that I have had my eye on for a while now, so I am super excited!! I also had a great time with super great friends!!
Before….we have a lot of work ahead of us!!
We always take a self portrait by our hotel after all our hard work…
Love this city!!
All done….looks super cute!!
Yummy!! Candy station…
New dress!! Sasha….it’s convertable!! It zips off just under that first layer so it becomes a party dress for the reception!!
Meg from Meg Jewelry has a booth right next to mine this year. Yaaa!!
Matthew Christopher stopped by for a visit….LOVE this guy!!!
Fashion show night!! Here is my Olivia dress with hat!!
And my video of the other dresses…
My friends from Garnette Avenue had the grand finale of the show again with 12 new dresses!! Super fun!!
I was right next to my favorite Italian...Alberto!!
Don't forget Leo!! My other favorite Italian!!
Our hotel gave us a goldfish for our room, and he brought me such good luck at the show, I had to give him a kiss!! Thanks, Frank!!
We had to stop by our new friends, Lindsie and Megan from Haute Bride!! We needed some fabulous jewels for the Debi awards that night!!
Here we are....all dressed up in front of the Field Museum in Chicago!! Ready for a fun night!!
Robyn and Spencer, from Houston Bridal look marvelous!!
I love when I run into my English friend, Oliver, from Filippa Scott!! Looking dapper, as usual!!
