July 2011 Archives

If malls and music are two of your favorite things, you should swing by Oakbrook Center at 6 p.m. on Wednesdays for their "Fashion. Music. Be Inspired!" series.

Every Wednesday will be a different fashion show set to live music. Here's the schedule (the names of the fashion shows get funnier as the list goes on):

July 13:
Electronic Violin Sonnet with the Modern Day Fashion Forecast show.

July 20:
Sinatra Classic Quartet with the Seasonable Social After-5 fashion show.

July 27: Laid-back tunes of the coffee house vibe featuring the Relaxed Approach to Dressing with Style show.

The show takes place from 6 to 7:30 between Macy's and Crate & Barrel.

Expect to see fashion from Neiman Marcus, Lord & Taylor, Talbots, Coldwater Creek, Anthropologie, American Apparel, Brighton Collectibles, Pandora, Intimacy, White House l Black Market, Cache, Silver Chic, Harry & David, Wildfire Restaurant, Origins and more.

It was a sea of shiny, bronzed celebrities -- and Mayim Bialik -- at the L.A. premiere of the new comedy "Horrible Bosses," which opens Friday.

On display on the red carpet were a baby bump, tube dresses galore and a showdown between two matching off-the-shoulder frocks. Let me know what you think:

Give $3 to help provide a book for a child, and you'll snag $10 off a purchase of $50 or more at any Macy's from now until July 13.

Your donation will help out the Reading is Fundamental program, which provides books and reading resources to the children in your community who need them. The program's goal is to give 1 million books to kids this summer.
