Just a quick little thank you to those who came out to Francesca’s during the Lincoln Park Shop-Hop last week and especially to Eileen for organizing the event and Shannon, the store manager. I had a blast hosting with Jill and we even picked up some really cute pieces that I’m sure you’ll be seeing on our blogs soon.

Another quick reminder that today is the last day to enter to win the holiday gift basket through the Rafflecopter. Winner will be announced tomorrow!
