Chicago has officially gone into full winter mode. What. In. The. ACTUAL. World?! Beyond having snow yet again, the sky is getting so dark so early. Like, what in the world is that?!

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I attended a private holiday dinner hosted by Nordstorm and Rachel Parcell at Room 1520 with Alicia. What a fun way to celebrate the launch of her beautiful holiday collection! This wasn’t the first time I’ve met Rachel! In fact, we were in Mexico together for an influencer trip we hosted last year with one of our clients. I truly enjoyed getting a chance to chat with her and catch up!

Okay, so the collection! From pearls to sequins, faux fur to even home decor, Rachel’s line is offering something for everyone. Some of my personal favorite items included the pale pink faux fur coat (under $200), mini beaded top handle bag, trim tiered mesh skirt, cascading earrings, and full skirt paired with the textured dot bow dress. Oh! And don’t even get me started about the sequin long-sleeve dress! It’s a showstopper!

Since the very launch, Rachel and her team have been incredibly generous with sending me items from the collection! I can attest to the exceptional quality of the products, and it’s been a joy to see her expand to new product categories!

Lastly, I had the chance to meet up with my rewardStyle account rep, Jenna. We’ve worked together for several years now, and she’s been my constant advocate and sounding board for blogging. I seriously don’t know what I would do without her! We went to Momotoro, which was EXCEPTIONAL! Highly recommended!
