Party: Kensie Grand Opening

This weekend at the Kensie outlet we hosted our grand opening party and celebrated with a sweet candy bar, DJ, and special markdowns on all our fabulous merchandise. We loved the buzz that the DJ created and all our wonderful customers had an aboslute blast.

Candy for everyone!

Above is Mari, our store manager, pretending to be the DJ
We also featured merchandise outside as the mall was having a sidewalk sale for the holiday weekend, and here is Mari and Whitney welcoming shoppers in.

All our associates, including Mari and I above, wore our favorite pretty Kensie outfits and even though the weather was crummy outside we had a blast inside.

If you haven't been to the outlet yet, stop by soon!

Shop: Kie & Kate Couture

Last night I was lucky enough to head over to the Medinah golf course to attend Kie&Kate Couture's Summer Boutique with my bestie Amanda. We had a fabulous night, not only did the rain finally stop but Kate always has the best collection of goodies.

It was still pretty chilly despite the weather so I unpacked my winter space bags and threw on my favorite Free People sweater dress, black Hue tights, and my absolute most favorite pair of shoes. These fab heels are from the Kensie outlet at the Chicago Premium Outlet and are only $19.99.

Kate never disappoints with her incredible collection of jewelry, handbags and clothing and the following are pictures of some of my favorite pieces from last night.

This cross body hand bag was so different and such a great size, plus I love a cream purse in the summer.

Here is Amanda showing off one of Kate's awesome rings, all her stretchy rings are only $20 and make such a statement.

Amanda and I ended up both leaving with quiet a fabulous bundle of rings, bracelets, necklaces, scarves and tops! We also had a great time meeting Andrea of Blonde Beadhead, who is Kate's marketing assistant, and was wearing one of Kate's fab rompers and looked stellar.
