I absolutely LOVE free wi-fi deals around the holidays so this is very cool for me, especially since part of my holiday will be spent in an airport! Last year, Google made a similar (but even better) offer for free wi-fi that included in-flight connections. on AirTran, Delta and Virgin American. That was the greatest!

This year has been such a rough year, my Christmas spirit has been less than “cheery”. My parents have been asking for my list for weeks and I just couldn’t seem to come up with anything good. Recently, I looked through the Nordstrom Holiday catalogs and came across the awesome items listed below. Most of them won’t fit in my parent’s ideal shopping budget for me (LOL) but they’re fun items to dream about…
…and last but not least…. this Gilt/Jetsetter week long cooking excursion in Italy would totally make my year!
That’s about all I can come up with… It’s a sad day when a fashionista isn’t moved by shiny dresses and sparkly heels. I gotta get outta this funk soon! But enough about me… So what’s on your designer Christmas wish list???

Well, my luck has struck again…
Found this beauty in Nordstrom Rack – Oak Brook, IL. A beautiful Diane von Furstenberg Kipling dress (my first by the illustrious designed whom I’ve admired for so long). The dress is on sale for only $269.50 at her website… but the “slightly altered” version I got from the Rack cost me only $89 (plus Chicago’s crazy high tax, but even still…) I tried it on with a belt and my black Burberry pumps and it looks amazing!
I can’t wait to wear it… I just need to find a cool place to go!

Every once in a while I gather all of the photos I meant to post into a single blog… here is your entertainment for the week with a summary of some of the year’s events so far…
Valentine’s Day/February Birthday celebrations with the girls at Benihana – the chef left me a message *smile*.
Took this pic of a page in the Macy’s ad and went to find it… In the end didn’t buy it. The model must be way taller than me.
My dad was in Chicago the weekend I took my license and took me on a father daughter movie date that night.
A manager posting this after repeatedly telling me to stop walking/running so fast in the office.
I made it to the United Center taping of the Oprah show. It was the BEST concert ever!!!! I had a blast!!
Spent the holidays with my favorite little cousins at Navy Pier.
Took a trip to Detroit and got to see my Papa’s growing urban garden, including the cantaloupe along the fence (its hanging in the bag in the 3rd pic above).
Oh, and I grew my hair out!!! This pic is from June/July when I first straightened it after a few months of wearing it curly.
When I get a chance, I’ll post the food pics… there were too many to include on this post!!

Are you counting down Chicago???? This September the city of Chicago will get the second stateside Topshop store!!! I am so excited, as if H&M and Zara weren’t already super exciting. This will totally round out my summer shopping options. I already browsed the US site to see what’s out and created a nice “set” (new and old items) on Polyvore of the types of items I will be looking for! SecondCityStyle posted images from the preview. I can’t wait!
