Partying with Jenn Falik, Birchbox, and Hunter Dixon

To borrow a favorite phrase from KLG & Hoda, last Wednesday was definitely Wines-day as the indefatigable Jenn Falik pulled us into a wonderful party at her house.  If you “follow” Jenn—you know she’s a divine dispenser of beauty, fashion and lifestyle advice.  She’s also extremely hardworking and majorly good-hearted to boot!

Because Jenn is a big fan of Hunter Dixon, she decided to host an intimate trunk show/cocktail party at her house for the line’s eponymous founders Hunter Bell and Jen Dixon.   While 100 fashionable guests perused Hunter’s feminine and flirty design’s for fall, Shop It To Me signed people up for Salemail, Birchbox doled out beauty booty and the nice people at Jouer Cosmetics provided mini makeovers.

Thanks to the super talented Ana Schechter for the gorgeous photos; we are posting a few below to give you a feel for the night.  An even bigger thanks to Jenn for letting us interlope amongst all of her fabulous friends.

NYFW: Blogger’s Night Out

We kicked off New York Fashion Week by celebrating BNO with some of our favorite bloggers from across the country! The event was a huge success and we were beyond impressed by the gals who made it all happen (pictured below). Additionally we got to do a fun style contest, where attendees tweeted pictures of what they were wearing. Some serious style, these bloggers have!

Our winning look was sported by the lovely Andrea from Blonde Bedhead, though it was certainly a tough decision. Stay tuned for more on this fabulous style blogger — including the super cute item she chose via Shop It To Me and her fun feature in Salemail!

It was so wonderful seeing familiar faces and making new friends. We can’t think of a better way to have kicked off NYFW than by spending an evening with these stylish, inspiring and friendly fashion-lovers! Being involved was quite a treat.

Can’t wait to get to Chi-Town this week!

We’re so excited about our visit to the Windy City this week to celebrate Jessica Quirk’s What I Wore book launch.  Shop It To Me’s Chi-town connections run deep.


CEO Charlie Graham grew up in Highland Park and remains a huge fan of the Bears, the Bulls, and (sadly still) the Cubs. His Bears football jersey (“Graham #21″ of course) has a cherished place in his wardrobe—as does his favorite suit and wedding tuxedo from Morris & Sons.

Shop It To Me’s Chief Stylist Annie Landino grew up in the West Loop, where she attended Lane Tech and cultivated her inner fashionista. In high school, Annie so loved designer stuff, she would head to Nordstrom Rack in Woodfield to pick up coveted pieces at prices a teenager could afford! Her first-ever and most beloved score? A Karl Lagerfeld-era Chloe blouse. Lifeguarding at East Bank funded her fashion habit not to mention a move to NYC to attend FIT.

Be sure to join us on Wednesday at Julie Watson Style, in the Shops at 900 N. Michigan to meet Jessica and get a signed copy of her book. Many of the stores within 900 North Michigan Avenue will offer exclusive discounts that evening for Shop It To Me members.

See you there!

What I Wore Book Party at Azalea Boutique

Last night the most stylish spot in town was undoubtedly Azalea Boutique, where we threw a chic soiree in honor of Jessica Quirk’s new book, What I Wore. Our favorite bloggers, loyal members, and excited fans were all in attendance. Jessica’s books were flying off the shelves, and it was so fun having her there to sign and personalize them for our guests!

And luckily, thanks to photog extraordinaire Lydia Hudgens, we have these ah-mazing pictures to share. She’s one talented lady, so be sure to check out more of her work here.

We gave away this adorable number (styled by Jessica) to one very lucky raffle winner, Sammie B.!
