Letter from the Editor
Hello my lovely subscribers! I hope you all had a good weekend. I'm recovering from some type of flu, but I didn't let staying in bed stop me from creating! Welcome to the new and improved TheChicagolite.com newsletter. From this point forward you will be receiving an e-zine that will keep you abreast on all that is happening on the site including but not limited to event updates and giveaways. I hope you enjoy this new format. I had a lot of fun pretending to be Anna Wintour while creating this so feel free to give me some feedback. Since I had so much fun creating this, expect the next issue to be much cleaner with more features.
By now I'm sure you've all downloaded The Chicagolite App if you haven't done so, you can do so at the above link. The site is almost 9 months old so I felt that it was due for some new and exciting changes.
I'll get you up to speed if you are just now entering the world of The Chicagolite. Last month I decided to start a TCL Guide to DC. I visited my sister during Labor Day weekend and managed to squeeze in a few activities during my short stay. On the guide, you'll see a favorite among our First Family as well as my favorite Afternoon Tea to date. Well...second to The Langham but it was a close call.
The highlight event for me this month by a long shot was Lurie Children's Hospital Gold Coast Fashion Awards. This week I'll take you inside the lavish soirée. For the 60th anniversary of the awards, instead of a luncheon there were various tasting stations from some of Chicago's finest eateries. After stuffing our faces we were treated to a superb runway show curated by none other than Neiman Marcus. I also had a chat with last year's winner Tanya Taylor! She's had a whirlwind of a month with NY and PFW so it was good to catch up with her and see what's she's been up to since she last won the award.
October is a pretty hectic month in terms of events, my calendar is weeping because it is so full of back to back activities. We'll get to all of that in this issue. Without further ado, welcome to the October issue! :-)
