Hey everybody. I just returned from the Windy City and had a great, time. Soon after I arrived on Friday, my friends and I went to a movie theater downtown for a sold out screening of SATC. At the theater, women where streaming in with their Louboutins and dressed to the nines at 4:00 in the afternoon no less. I couldn’t help but chuckle to myself how excited everyone was.
Before the show, one group of twenty-something ladies caught my attention.
This lady however, didn’t appear to get the memo.
Once in the movie, the theater was buzzing in anticipation. I wish I could have taken more pictures, but I think my friends were a little embarrassed that I was approaching strangers to take their pictures. But back to the movie. Once the music began, all the women started cheering and clapping. It was pretty amusing. My girlfriend said, “This is like Star Wars for women!”. Then after an emotional roller coaster ride during the movie (I should have brought some extra make-up) the women once again cheered and clapped when the credits started to roll.
My verdict of the movie is that it was a lot of fun, but some parts of the story line were a little ridiculous and I was a bit disappointed with Carrie’s storyline. (We can talk about the movie for those of you who have seen it, by leaving a comment. So those of you who have not seen it, beware.)
The next day was filled with a lot of walking and shopping. But with Chicago’s 10% sales tax, I had pretty tough criteria for my purchases. 😀
Lastly, I had to show you this funny store front that I came upon Sunday. It’s for a city worker uniform shop. It reminded me of photos that Life In The Fashion Fast Lane features. Apparently with the recession, this shop couldn’t afford a mannequin with all her appendages.
Well, the City was a blast, but it’s time to get back to work. If you have any suggestions for a “Fashion Lesson” or theme for “Fashion Sensei Says…”, feel free to leave me a comment.
