Chicago Part 2: Eye Candy

After researching the list of events for Fashion's Night Out (FNO) in Chicago, we thought we'd end up at the 900 Shops which is where we parked the car. This was the first FNO either of us had been to. Turns out, we were walking by Neiman Marcus (one of our other top picks) as the festivities started and we ended up spending the majority of the evening there. We were both pleased with how this turned out.... I mean, how could you resist these people at the door?
Many of the events boasted a fashion show, picture booths, DJ's, makeup/manicures/hair, delicious food from local restaurants, and more. The only thing we didn't partake in was the makeup/manicures/hair because the lines were quite long.
We got situated for NM's show and all I have to say is WOW! Everything from the music to the models was awe inspiring. Layers upon layers of colors, patterns and textures - each piece probably costing more than my monthly income!

As if all of that were not enough, they started sending the men out like this:
And I was like this:
We were both like that! Oh my! After taking it all in, we walked the rest of the way back to the car, stopping along the way at a few more stores. We tried on some of the craziest outfits we could find, just for fun! We could have stayed even longer, but knowing the drive back and losing the hour for the time difference played a big part. We sure had a great FNO though!!!
