Sequins & Stripes Holiday Shopping Soiree

Tuesday, December 10, 2013 Sophie Magdalena

Halfstack Magazine had the chance to attend the Sequins & Stripes Holiday Shopping Soiree at Del Frisco on December 4th.  From beautiful people, an alluring setting, enjoyable shopping and delicious drinks, the night was the perfect balance of elegance and holiday cheer!  

Del Frisco, a beautiful steak house in Downtown Chicago off Oak Street, the waiters and waitresses were on top of their game making sure there was no shortage of wine, drinks and spirits.  Laughter and friendly chatter from both guests and vendors alike, filled the air...  And everyone was dressed fabulously, nothing short of expectation from Chicagoans!  

From baby clothes to fine jewelry, the Sequins & Stripes Holiday Shopping Soiree was the perfect blend of local designers present to help you finish up that long holiday shopping list!  

Jennifer Harris, Manager at Luxaby, walked me through their product line.  Luxaby is a quaint little boutique that sells baby, children's and maternity fashions.  They had cozy pajamas and lovely coats for all of our little princes and princesses!  

And what woman doesn't love jewelry?!  I made sure to stop by T+J Designs to take a look at all the pieces brought to the event.  From necklaces, bracelets, earrings, watches, monograms and more, they have all of your jewelry needs covered.  Jennifer Worman, owner of T+J Designs, explained that all of the jewelry is fashion forward and yet reasonably priced, perfect for the every day woman!  

Moving right along, Designer, Dana Rebecca also showcased her collection of earrings, rings and bracelets from her DRD Bridal collection.  Her designs have been seen on many celebrities and have been featured by InStyle Magazine and many others.

If the perfect fit jean is what you look for this holiday season, Henry & Belle is what you need!  With every cut and style available including flares, skinnies, straight leg and bootcut, their wide array of colors and fits are the perfect gift for the beautiful ladies in your life!  These jeans are the perfect investment piece to any wardrobe.  

Sofia Boutique, previously featured on the Halfstack Magazine Blog, was also charming the event with their signature motto, "live lovely."  From accessories and bags, to clothing and lingerie, Sofia has it all!  

And last but not least, I made my final stop at Blow by Blow which was on site giving guests blow outs!  A blow dry bar, Blow by Blow was doing people's hair and showing how easy it is to keep your hair looking hot when it's cold in Chicago!  With awesome stylists, what better way to feel good about yourself than with a new 'do' this holiday season! 

Check out each of these great boutiques all over Chicago this winter and stock up on off of their holiday goods!
