Not So Fashionably Late: 5 Stylish Events You Shouldn't Miss
If you're looking for an incentive to stay off of the couch and out of sweats this season, then keep yourself occupied at one of these fun and fashionable events around town.
- Fill an entire tote bag full of loot for only 20 bucks at eDrop-Off's Charity Warehouse sale at the National Helenic Museum (333 S. Halsted St., 312-655-1234) on Oct. 29, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Fill your sack with an array of gently used clothing, handbags, shoes, jewelry, and accessories. Now that's what we call trick-or-treating.
- Chicago Fashion Week may be over, but the fifth annual Latino Fashion Week will be rocking the scene Tuesday, Nov. 1, through Sunday, Nov. 6, complete with a red-carpet reception, designer showcase, trend expo, and plenty of glitzy runway shows. Check out the entire Latino Fashion Week schedule of events.
- You don't have to travel to Paris to go to the Left Bank (1155 W. Webster Ave., 773-929-7422), the adorable jewelry and accessories shop with an emphasis on wedding-day goods. From Nov. 3 through 6, save 20 to 80 percent off several one-of-a-kind pieces including super cool vintage brooches, designer veils by Laura Jayne, Erica Koesler Headpieces, Haute Bride gems, Grace and Grazia shoes, and more.
- You may have already done your Fall shoe shopping, but it doesn't hurt to prepare your closet for what is to come in the not so distant future. Plan ahead at the Stuart Weitzman (520 N. Michigan Ave., 312-661-1560) Spring trunk show, where you can preview new designs and preorder those stilettos and sandals for next year.
- Fashion and beauty go hand in hand, and when it comes to makeup, we can't think of a better person to bring out our best features than the amazing Sonia Roselli (7363 N. Greenview Ave, 773-465-7363). Join the artiste extraordinaire for Eyeconic: eye makeup 101, taking place on select class dates in November. In the course of 90 minutes, you'll receive personalized instruction on how to master everything from eye shapes and color selection to Hollywood brows and fixing makeup boo-boos. The cost is $125 per gal, and if you prepay in advance, you'll also receive a five-piece essential brush set, a brush bag, three well shadow palettes, and a 20 percent product discount the day of the class.
