On my way to Chicago recently, I noticed shoe designer Angela Scott posted on Instagram from the stainless steel sculpture Cloud Gate in Millennium Park (aka the Chicago Bean). She invited anyone viewing the post to come see her at Neiman Marcus that evening. You don’t have to ask me twice!
As soon as I landed and picked up my bag, my brother Edwards and I made our way downtown for the soiree where we found the second floor shoe salon bustling with lovely Chicago fashionistas. Neiman’s, as always, was a wonderful host, wining us, stuffing us with sweets and giving away a pair of designer shoes to one lucky person. Sadly, I did not win.
Fashion blogger Jennifer Worman of Red Wine & Red Soles gave a short presentation about spring shoe styles she loves, followed by a short talk by Angela who was looking quite California laid-back chic. Angela could not have been nicer. She told me a funny story of her recent world travels, and she admitted she was ready to be home after a long time on the road.
Enjoy photos from the evening! (Apologies for my jet-lagged appearance!)
