Hosted by MJ Tam and Beth Rosen of ChicagonistaLIVE! and co-hosted by Boomfluent, RoleMommy.com, and Trumpeting Media. THIS was the place to be!

Guests were welcomed by Raved, Wao Bao, and complimentary issue of Redbook, while they signed in and received their special fashion missions. These missions consisted of visiting stores around Water Tower Place and tweeting/instagraming the photos as well. At about 4 pm, the stage lights lit and the event was kicked-off with Broadway in Chicago‘s The Australian Bee Gees.

But the BIG portion was the fashion show! Bloggers from all around the country dressed in outfits that represented great Chicago landmarks or areas. Let’s take a gander, shall we?

The emcee for the evening was none other than the great Nancy Loo @NancyLoo of WGN News
