Take a look back with me if you will, to a post I intended to write ONE MONTH ago, our trunk show.
The goods and the talented women of Chicago that I would love to share.
PHOTOGRAPHY By Rebecca Plotnick
A board spotted in Paris.............LOVE this photograph!
Rebecca's collection starts in our beloved Chicago to Paris, England, Italy and recently Israel.
Meet an amazing powerhouse of a woman, Jess Constable
Jess is as beautiful inside as her gorgeous outward appearance. Spend time with her, and you will be instantly energized.....this girl has a lust for life . She began her biz when she was fifteen and is now nationwide. Jess and I are in the beginning stages of contemplating 'Empowering Women' get-togethers at the Chicago shop, would you be interested?. Visit her blog, Make under my life for inspiration.
All of Jess's collections are named for renown streets in Chicago.
This line, 'Diversey' was launched at our event

Chicago EL stops. Whenever I have mine on, I am stopped, and soak in the "oooh's and ahhh's"

Jewelry maker + private chef = a life lived creatively and passionately.
