nyc real housewife alex mccord's next venture

New York City's, "Real Housewife", Alex McCord, and host committee, Candace Jordan, Ryan Pruett and Kelli Zink celebrated the Grand Opening of Second Time Around,(STA) a chain of high-end consignment stores in Chicago this week. This is the resale store's debut in Chicago. Headquartered in Boston, the other 19 stores are throughout the Northeast from New York to Maine. Alex was absolutely stunning in this fabulous fire engine red dress. She is the new Director of Creative Operations for STA. Alex is very familiar with Chicago's North Shore, as a former actor with Northwestern University's Theatre Program. In addition to being a New York fashionista, she has a laundry list of impressive acting accolades and can sing the Gilligan's Island theme song in Latin! Following the store's grand opening, she was ready to shoot the next season of "The Real Housewives of New York City" back in the Big Apple. The Grand Opening was standing room only for a sneak-peek at top designers with discount prices! Second Time Around was written up by Vanity Fair online as one of the top three consignment stores in New York City & now that flair is in Chicago's trendiest neighborhood. Their stash includes riding boots... snazzy blazers... cocktail dresses... and this hot little samuri skirt, that unfortunately was snatched up by my sister before I could get my hands on it! The event was sponsored by Michigan Avenue magazine... and one of the hostesses included Windy City socialite, and fellow blogger, Candace Jordan, who I would love to see as a 'Real Housewife of Chicago' one day. A lucky shopper who scored big on this outfit... ...and more shopping galore- Second Time Around is located at 823 West Armitage in Lincoln Park. 773.698.6260 Hours: Monday-Saturday 10am-8pm, Sunday 12pm-6pm
