Fashion Focus 2009
Like many women, I’ve a weakness for fashion. I probably know Glamour’s Dos and Don’ts better more than Hamlet, and I’ve a weakness for accessories [purses, most often].
That being said, sometimes I’m still just mooning over a Miu Miu bag rather than purchasing it. That doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy Chicago’s fledgling fashion scene with a bunch of fashion shows and shopping events to create your own mini The Devil Wears Prada. What follows are the free events centering around Fashion Focus 2009. Get in early, as some start RSVPs early.
