First I must say::: Congrats Black Hawks! Whooo hooo!



I was invited to the fabulous unveiling of the latest in Jet Set Style with the Global Glam Spring / Summer 2010 Collection at the W Hotel Lakeshore with host Kelli Zink in her cute black sheer dress and Giuseppes and Jillian Harris (Bachelorette fame) in a Dennis Basso dress and Jimmy Choos.

I wondered: what is this Global Glam about? I soon learned that last fall W Hotels unveiled its first-ever exclusive fashion and accessories collection and this party was for the second season.

These stores are for the girl who knows the must have pieces of the season and know that W Hotel- The Store will provide. I learned that the designers were: Rebecca Minkoff, Dolce Vita, DANNIJO, Daniel Benedict, Rebecca Weissman, Vitamin A, Sonia Spencer, Susan Daniels, Suzanna Dai, Kendra Scott, and WiNK.

Many items are also available online and through the WISH catalogue. Get into it!

Desiree Rogers is working as a consultant with Johnson Publishing Co. ( Ebony and Jet magazines), to help with corporate strategy… while Amy Dubois Barnett is the new editor-in-chief of Ebony magazine.  I’m happy for both of these super talented ladies

Candace Jordan and a committee of her most stylish friends hosted the official ticket launch party for Macy’s Passport Presents Glamorama 2010, benefiting Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana (RMHC®-CNI). Guests enjoyed appetizers by George Jewel, cocktails and a performance by rising stars & Hidden Beach recording artist, Naturally 7.

For my reader who wanted MORE MORE MORE Tiger Woods:: his wife Elin has filed for divorce.  They really want to keep it hush hush but it is rumored that she wants half of everything…. Can you blame her?
