some exciting stuff.

I’ve seriously had an amazing week so far (and it’s only Wednesday!) – the exciting events keep rollin’ in and I’m feeling truly lucky to have such wonderful opportunities coming up.

First up, I’ll be at Eddie Bauer’s Blogger Day event tonight at the brand’s Michigan Avenue location in Chicago.  We’ll be getting a sneak peek of their 2011 holiday collection and styling models in our fave “dressed up down” looks.  Here are some of my favorite looks from the online preview – I’m super excited to see the rest and share my styled looks and photos from the event with you next week!

But wait, there’s more!!  The lovely Miss Whitney Port (who I was just discussing with Lauren yesterday) is coming to Chicago on Saturday, November 12 to host the “Design Your Life” event.  The event is event will feature a fashion and lifestyle seminar hosted by Whitney where she’ll be sharing her insights and offering advice on how to follow your true passion.  And if that doesn’t sound awesome enough, there will also be fancy autumn-inspired cocktails and Google will be there showing off their latest app, Google Places.  I’ll definitely be attending and would love to meet and hang out with some of my fellow Chicago ladies.

And, for my biggest and most exciting piece of news… I’ll be part of a social media panel discussion (with some truly amazing ladies) at the November Ms. Career Girl Connect event!  We’ll be answering questions about how to get the most out of social – personally, professionally and for business – and offering our insights and personal experiences.  The  Ms. Career Girl events are always a great networking opportunity for local professionals and don’t worry boys, you’re totally welcome too!  So to all my Chicago readers, you’d make me one very happy lady if you came out on November 17 – I can promise you’ll have a ton of fun and the fact that there will be complimentary champagne and food provided by some of the city’s best food trucks is an added bonus as well.
