I went to Chicago with a shopping list in mind! After months of saving a little from each paycheck and a couple of nice gift cards in my possession, I knew exactly where I wanted to start! San Antonio does not currently have an Eileen Fisher store. For three years, some of my favorite bloggers have written about EILEEN FISHER and I knew this was where to begin.
So, I took the escalator up in the gorgeous WATER TOWER PLACE only to be surprised with an actual meeting of all EF Chicago managers, sales associates, and two of the cutest learning partners just off graduation from Notre Dame. A powerhouse meeting just for me…or well it seemed…just for me!

What a fun group of ladies! They were ready to roll out the red carpet and introduce me to EF in a big way…we discussed wardrobe building, sizing, fabrics, and company history. Kim Austad, store leader for the Highland Park location, was a fit queen and knew exactly how to direct me. It was a great time for many reasons!
I loved this jacket above and hope to take one home in the future, but I did take home five other pieces including my favorite.. the tunic pictured here…
