Fashionistas Flock to Shecky’s Girls Night Out

Shecky’s famous Girls Night Out event made its way back to Chicago for three days of fashion, beauty, and fun! From Wednesday, 3/18, to Friday, 3/20, you had the opportunity to shop emerging designers at discounted prices, sip cocktails, and enjoy mini beauty services.

Crowds of hungry-for-discount-designer-goods shoppers huddled around displays of chic leather belts, ribbon-band watches, dangling semiprecious-stoned earrings and glittering rhinestone handbags. There were racks of dresses, blouses, suede coats and handmade threads that we don’t need but definitely want. And is it even legal to sell a Trina Turk fitted blazer for $100? We snagged that up in an instant. The ‘Le Dress’ booth made us very happy this year.

In addition to all of that good stuff, another reason to attend Shecky’s GNO is the Famous Goodie Bag! This year the Bag was very recession friendly with necessities that every girl needs. Now we can skip a trip or two to Walgreen's. Thank you Shecky’s!

The Bud Light & Cheese tasting was very original, but we left with a sophisticated Midori Margarita buzz. Our bags filled up the cab home and the accomplished smile lingered for the rest of the evening. Who couldn’t use a fun night out with their leading ladies?
