‘By Invitation Only’ Launch With Gilt City

Gilt Groupe founders Alexandra Wilkis Wilson and Alexis Maybanks will be in Chicago Thursday, April 19 celebrating the launch of their new book, By Invitation Only. With all of the flash sale members only sites now available, Gilt remains one of the most popular (and they happen to be one of the first). So I am very excited to meet the founders and learn about how it all began by checking out their book!


These ladies literally changed the way people shop so this is one event not to miss! VIP tickets for this event are now available on Gilt City so you can purchase yours here and be sure to join if you’re not yet a member.

Spring Into Summer Essentials With Gilt

It’s mid-May…and if you haven’t stocked up on your Spring/Summer wardrobe yet, I suggest you do! Although the weather has been questionable in Chicago, it’s over 50 degrees somewhere (probably most places).  So pick up some new pieces from Gilt, and show off your new Spring/Summer wardrobe.

Here are my favorite sales happening this week on Gilt…

Spring Into Summer Essentials (5/17)- Every stylish woman knows that versatile pieces are the key to unlimited outfit options. Drapey tanks and tees, party dresses, floral-prints, and easy rompers and jumpsuits—these warm weather essentials will take you from spring to summer…and beyond.

Marc Jacobs Collection (5/18)- Padlocked hobos, patterned totes, and lots more styles that are unmistakably Marc Jacobs populate this sale. The designer most likely to inherit the mantle of American fashion puts his stamp on this sought-after accessory line. Don’t miss the stylish agenda covers or the quilted python totes. 

Ali Ro (5/19)Stock your closet with the just-edgy-enough frocks and separates that are Ali Ro’s stock in trade. Cutouts, slanted hems, unusually placed zippers—the ultramodern embellishments add to the appeal of the picks Gilt has selected without rendering them overly offbeat.
