Chicago Sun-Times SPLASH partnered with Kristina McGrath to present Shopping for #Love last Thursday in the McGrath Acura showroom, supporting the American Heart Association. Included in the shopping extravaganza were several coveted Chicago boutiques, jewelry lines, beauty bars, and the best nail technician around: Edith Hart, Damen+Division, eDrop-Off, Luxury Garage Sale, Sara Jane, Lulu’s At the Belle Kay, Laudi Vindi, Atelier AZZA, Dana Rebecca Designs, Leah Chavie Skincare Boutique, Advanced Dermatology, Amazing Cosmetics, and Astro Wifey. Guests had the pleasure of supporting a wonderful cause and a night of pampering, while sipping on bubbly and enjoying passed hors d’oeurves. If this wasn’t a night of retail therapy, I don’t know what is!
First up, we stopped by one of our favorites, Damen+Division (you may remember our lust filled post on these pieces in our Nieves Lavi Spring 2013 Preview recap.)
The eDrop-Off table was decked with Oscar de la Renta Resort and Spring 2013 pieces, florals by Stemline Creative, and their brand new EDO necklace tees, illustrated by Rosemary Fanti. They sold the chic-shirts to benefit the American Heart Association and raised over $1000!
Guests enjoyed Prosecco as they browsed the various boutiques! We ran into Lindsay Segal, co-owner of Luxury Garage Sale (pretty in pink in the photo above)
Beautiful blazers and dresses by Atelier Azza – cut, hand embroidered, sewn and finished entirely by hand. One of each, please! Owner Azeeza Khan pictured below with her husband.
