Nordstrom Rack Grand Opening @ Fashion Outlets of Chicago 

nordstrom rack grand openingThe new Nordstrom Rack store at the Fashion Outlets of Chicago has officially opened! I had so much fun at the opening event and you seriously can’t beat the amazing finds and deals. The addition of Nordstrom Rack, makes the Fashion Outlets of Chicago one of the only two outlet shopping centers in the United States with every outlet anchor store located onsite. How cool is that?! I may be biased because Nordstrom Rack is seriously my favorite store, but I highly recommend checking out this location. mini hot dogs delightful kate spade clutch in black friends in a mirror selfie drinking coke

Where Art Meets Fashion

And last, but not least, “THE COLLECTION” at Fashion Outlets of Chicago is launching the first week of November with the unveiling of a newly commissioned work by Carlos Rolón/Dzine. A Chicago artist and 2016 recipient of the Joan Mitchell Award for Painting and Sculpture, Rolón has been recognized for his elaborately crafted paintings, ornate sculptures and works that come out of American, Latino and uniquely based subcultures. His newest work will be located in front of Bloomingdale’s The Outlet Store and Tory Burch on level two of the shopping center. In addition, the first of “THE COLLECTION’s” rotating mobile exhibitions, changing three times a year, will also be revealed. Curated by Director and Founder of Johalla Projects Anna Cerniglia, the exhibition—on view through February—will feature the work of Aimée Beaubien, Kate McQuillen and Jeroen Nelemans.

The Rolón commission joins the work of eight artists currently included in Fashion Outlets of Chicago’s contemporary art collection. Artists include Daniel Arsham, Bhakti Baxter, Jim Drain, Cody Hudson, Alvaro Ilizarbe, Kenton Parker, Bert Rodriguez and Jen Stark. The artwork, both painted murals and hanging installations, can be found throughout the shopping center’s common areas and will continue to be on display for patrons to enjoy. Can’t wait to check out the new art installations!

bucketfeet - 17Last night I attended the press release party for the new Bucketfeet store in Bucktown (1647 N. Damen). This is the fourth company store company located in the heart of Bucktown/Wicker Park and the space is so open and welcoming. I love the concept of the company; giving artists opportunities to share their art worldwide. You can read some of the artists’ stories at the store or on the blog.

The concept started a few years ago when Co-Founder Aaron Fierstein designed a pair of shoes and gave them to Co-Founder Raja Nemani. From there, the rest is history and what turned out is a community of people supporting artists and spreading messages that art is really for everyone. You too can be a Bucketfeet designer by submitting your work online or in-store.

I did walk away with an awesome pair of sneakers and I can’t wait to wear them. Here’s a sneak peak. The grand opening is Thursday at 6:30, so if you’re in the area stop by!

Then we headed over to Ross on Randolph and had first looks at the new location.

It was such a fun evening and I had a lot of fun hunting for the perfect finds. I picked up this distressed Puma sweatshirt and these fun Guess leopard/sparkly slip on sneakers each for $24.99. Can you believe those deals?! Every week they get new shipments, so I can’t to see what I find next time I go!
