On Thursday October 24th, The Limited at Water Tower Place in Chicago got fancy and celebrated it's 50th Anniversary of creating chic styles for women. I just happened to be in town that day and was invited to attend the celebration!
The evening began with champagne and hors d'oeuvres while attendees sipped, savored and shopped! Next there was a fashion show featuring the latest looks from The Limited, co-hosted by Senior Vice President of Design, Elliot Staples, with local fashion expert, Corri McFadden.
We got to see some great styles on the models, along with three Chicago bloggers who were selected to participate in the fashion show - Christine (The View from 5 ft. 2), Jess (Addictions of a Fashion Junkie) and Jess (Jess & Jill). They all had cute looks for the fall season!
This was also where the Ultimate Celebration Dress was revealed, that was voted on by the public. There were three dresses to choose from and the Riley dress was the winner. It's the perfect dress for a wedding, holiday party, anniversary or whatever you want to celebrate! I spoke with Elliot about the dress which he designed and he mentioned that the movie The Great Gatsby was an inspiration along with the fact that he wanted to create a dress that women of all sizes could wear. There are limited quantities, so grab yours before it's gone!
Another highlight of the event was The Limited donating $50,000 to my fave organization that I volunteer with, Dress for Success. Joi Gordon, CEO of Dress for Success was on hand to accept the check which will be of great help! I was so happy to be a part of this great evening of style and giving back. Here's to another 50+ years of The Limited!
