Last night we attended the Poshmark #PoshParty held at JBar! Hallie of corals + cognacsHelen of Hel Del Chic, Taylor of Curly in the City and Jessica of Bows & Sequins hosted the event, while some of our favorite bloggers attended. Poshmark is a free iPhone app that makes buying and selling fashion very easy. With just a quick sign up, you can upload photos and the deets of products you want to sell, and just as easily raid the closets of others around you. To make it even more fun, they have Posh Parties! Once you have that app installed, check out upcoming events under the 'Parties' tab and find a local Posh Party near you.

We had so much at this event and chatted with so many amazing bloggers! Scroll through our photos and logon to that App Store and start shopping and selling!

Elizabeth Arden has recently launched a great campaign that every Fashionista/Beauty Guru can get behind! They've teamed up with Look Good ... Feel Better, a program dedicated to helping cancer patients look and feel their best during treatment, to launch the "Pin It To Give It" campaign on their Pinterest page. For every image repinned, Elizabeth Arden will donate an eyeliner to Look Good ... Feel Better, with a total of 10,000 eyeliners. To participate, visit their Pinterest site here, repin any of the images from "Pin It To Give It", and keep the hashtag #PinItToGiveIt. That's it! An eyeliner will then be donated to a woman undergoing treatment for cancer. Everyone deserves to look and feel beautiful, and with the help of Elizabeth Arden, you can make this possible!

We would love it if our readers would take a minute out of their day to participate. You can go to our Pinterest page here to see what images we've repinned. Happy Pinning!

We may or may not (okay, we totally did) have had our calendars marked for this Friday event. Along with our outfits planned. With matching makeup...

One of our favorite online shops Rad and Refined, has FINALLY brought their California style to Chicago. Customers can book an appointment with a stylist to peep their showroom (talk about the PERFECT shopping experience) filled with trendy pieces and vintage goodies. But what would a fabulous store be without a fabulous launch party? Held at Market in the West Loop and sponsored by Refinery29, Mink Pink, Voli Vodka, and Uber, we got to enjoy cocktails, sweet treats, and yes... A photo booth! Thanks again to owner and stylist Jacqueline Rezak for inviting us to such a fabulous event!

Jess wore a blouse from H&M, studded denim from Zara, GUESS by Marciano clutch, bracelet from J.Crew, necklace from GUESS, and Dolce Vita sandals. Jill wore a Rebecca Beeson top, H&M skirt, Stuart Weitzman wedges, and Marc Jacobs clutch. A big thanks to Jess's boyfriend, who kindly took all our photos for us! It makes mingling a breeze with him around!

With one of our favorite bloggers, Lisa from Stilettos & Diaper Bags.

Us with the lovely Sabrina!

Another night in a row seeing Mary from Sportsanista!

With the beautiful lady that made this all possible, Jacqueline of Rad and Refined!

And of course, if there's a photo booth, we're in it!

Thursday was our time to attend the Primp & Pour event and finally try out the Santa Margherita wines that complement the nail polishes we've had so much fun playing with! (Check out Jess's post here and Jill's here.) The Sparkling Rosé we sipped on made the evening filled with manicures and girl talk perfect, as we totally enjoyed the retro-glam feel of Beauty BarJess wore a dress from Gap, denim jacket from H&M, sandals from Steve Madden, GUESS jewelry, and a gifted clutch. Jill wore a Silence and Noise blazer, Ella Moss shirt, Forever 21 shorts, Stuart Weitzman wedges, a Steve Madden bag, and a vintage necklace.

We finally met Mary of Sportsanista!

If you haven't hit up a Primp & Pour date yet, this Thursday is your last chance. So get on it! RSVP here for one of the time slots available.

We weren't ready to go home just yet, so we headed over with our pretty manicures to the Sassy City Chicks event, which we found out about through Chicago Blogger Network. The mix of fabulous jewelry, clothes, and beauty products made the quick dash back downtown totally worth it. Check out some of our favorites we spotted!

Everyone's favorite, Stella & Dot was showing off their newest pieces! We met independent stylist, Sharon Millas (you can reach her at 773.301.3962 or

We were introduced to Colleen's Collection, jewelry inspired from "the beauty of life and nature". And you can see that in all of her pieces! Don't forget to follow her on Twitter and Facebook! She currently has a 20% off sale online, use JUNE20 at checkout to redeem.

Our last favorite of the night was Nomadic Ant, a Chicago based designer and retailer that features handmade pieces using unique metals, shells, and rare stones. We absolutely loved their necklaces, especially the brass mounted deer piece! Follow them on Twitter and Facebook.
