Festivus for the Rest of Us

The holiday party season is upon us & I’m still in denial that the end of the year is rapidly approaching. Didn’t it just begin? This time last year I was packing for a long Puerto Rican holiday and now I am battling snow, ice & 14 degree temperatures! I think it is time to pack again. The Chicago holiday season is always a blast. There is a black-tie almost every weekend until the end of January from the city to the North Shore. What I love about these FĂȘtes is that they are fundraisers for very good causes: cancer, domestic violence, homeless people, homeless pets, stroke and others.

Woman's Club Fashion Show

What I really love about the different women's clubs that my sister & I belong to are the fashion shows! Many times we incorporate the members into the show as models and that is when I have the most fun. I always find it interesting what the designers pick for me to wear. Sometimes I think the outfits are absolutely perfect & I may even walk away with a purchase off my own back-other times LeAnita &  I wonder, "What in the heck were they thinking??!!"
