Goodbye 2016, HELLO 2017; With A ‘Lil Help From Paperless Post! Every year, I like to throw a ‘lil soiree to celebrate the past year with the new upcoming year. Because the holiday season is a packed one and I always feel like there’s so much to do with so little time, Paperless Post definitely helps me save time. All the invitations are so beautiful and they have really cute envelope liners as well. A solid invitation definitely sets the tone for a great party. It’s hard to keep track of friends’ addresses, but with the easy-to-use dashboard, all you have to do is email your guest list. There is the option of a paper copy which I really love because sometimes you just need to feel the paper and appreciate it’s beauty and texture. You can also design your own invitation with the templates. A lot of of the invitations or cards are free, but some of them costs a couple of coins. I admit that I like to splurge on my invitations and spend a couple of coins to make my friends and family feel extra special when they open their inboxes 🙂 These are few the invitations that I’m thinking about for this year’s soiree. I’m sticking with a gold, cream and black color palette.
Once the R.S.V.P.s are in, the party planning and celebrating can begin! You’ll definitely need some snacks and champagne, of course! I love my bar cart because it helps me organize all my beverages and glassware. Now the only hard decision is deciding whether to wear this velvet jumpsuit or this sequin dress!

A few weeks back, I attended “The Collection: Where Art Meets Fashion” launch party at the Fashion Outlets of Chicago. The Collection, public art throughout the center featuring contemporary artwork, has been around since 2013, but now The Collection features nationally and internationally renowned artists and rotating exhibitions three times a year. Click here to see the artists that are currently featured. Macerich has poured in over one million dollars to support the program which is amazing for the arts. President Edward C. Coppola, of Macerich, has stated that the new art program will help reinforce our commitment to providing Macerich shoppers with a unique experience and help establish Fashion Outlets of Chicago as a true cultural destination. Which has been establishing itself the last couple of years in the Chicagoland area.
I had such a fun time at the event because it combined all my favorite activities all under one roof: art, fashion and food. Below are a few shots from the event. The Fashion Outlets of Chicago is a great place to visit, especially on chilly days, because they truly have so many things to do there. It’s easy to get to from the city and you can definitely spend a lot of time shopping, eating, art gazing, etc. I’ll keep you updated when new artists are rotating though, but in the meantime, if anybody needs a shopping/art buddy let me know and I’ll meet ya there 😉
