Last night (after the fabulous BHLDN 1st anniversary party- pictures coming soon) we braved the snow storm to head down to Saks Fifth Avenue for the Sun Times Foundation’s “Step Out” event. The highlight of the evening was the opportunity to custom design and order a pair of Manolo Blahnik’s, with the help of Roger (above) from Saks!
Cassandra Gaddo and Julie Saunders were all smiles.
Complementary makeup artists were on hand to beautify while guests enjoyed champagne and passed hours de vours, all for a wonderful cause.
Hosts Jacky Ferro and Elizabeth Cole greet the crowd.
Gorgeous custom Manolos’ (from a previous event) on a gorgeous girl!
Always nice to see familiar faces and CHICago Life Blog favorites Eileen Fosound, Denise Dayan, and Rochelle Trotter.
Looking over the countless choices that could be customized!
Amelia diving into the custom design process.
Indecisiveness at its finest.
Janice Wee and Beth Hilenbrand enjoying themselves.
Countless custom options to choose from! Amelia ended up going with a pointy nude pump, complete with a red snakeskin cap toe, and matching ankle strap. Want to see what they look like? Us too! They won’t arrive until August…
Fara Cardelli and Beth Hilenbrand looking lovely.
A wonderful event by the Sun Times Foundation, Splash, and Saks!
Lyndsay Camins, Julie Latsko, Leah Chavie, and Sarah Boban looking fabulous and having a great time!
