While all of Chicago decked out in green and took to the streets to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, the Dolls found themselves doing one of the things they do best… Getting glam in the heart of the city. Caitlin and Dani visited one of their blogger friends, the adorable Shai Chung of Drunk on Shoes, as she hosted Get Glam & Get Going at Macy’s on State Street.
The shopping party inspired a shift in the season’s fashions. It’s time to put away black leggings and boots and bust out ripped jeans styled with a pair of open-toe wedge sandals.
A huge thank you to @Macys for having me today and to everyone who stopped by and I got to meet in person! Lots of love to my friends who came out as well. I hope everyone had a great time. And thank you to all our featured brands @calvinklein @michaelkors @karenkane @rachel_roy @incinternationalconcepts @officialluckybrand ? // ? @leelimcollective // catch the fun on my snapchat ?? drunkonshoes #macyslove
Live models vogued the hottest trends in Spring fashion from top brands. Some of the Dolls favorite trend pieces include: Calvin Klein felt hat, Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply ripped jeans, Ralph Lauren Denim & Supply military jacket, Michael Kors eyelit dress, Karen Kane long fringe sweater, Rachel Roy denim jumpsuit, Inc International Concepts lace cold shoulder top and Lucky Brand fringe crossbody.
The activities at the event were unique and on-point including a milkshake bar, door prize giveaways, photo booth and a fresh twist on psychic readings with emoji readings (the Dolls’ personal favorite). Ginger looked to the history of your most recent emoji’s on your phone to read your personality and give insight into your lives. We were impressed with what she knew; pretty spot on with only the use of sparkle hearts, unicorns and pizza symbols.
(Shout out to our girl, Dani aka Mermaid Waves getting her emoji reading!)
Caitlin and Dani loved the gift bag which included a Macy’s gift card, Vince Camuto earrings, Benefit “Dew the Hoola” bronzer, Benefit Professional and philosophy “Amazing Grace” perfume.
Looking forward to the next event! Stay tuned…

WOW that sounds like so much fun. I’m jealous, I love attending events like that at my favorite stores.
It was a great event! Definitely keep an eye out for events at your local Macy’s. 🙂
This event looks like SO much fun! I wish we had something similar around here!
It was quite lovely. Thanks, Ashley! XO
Milkshake bar? What flavors did they have? Love Vince Camuto items as well!
I know right?! It was vanilla and you could choose all the toppings you wanted. Such a cute concept! XO
Love those photos! Can’t wait to start wearing pretty spring clothes! 🙂

Robin Rue (@massholemommy) says
Wow, what an awesome event. I wish they would do one at one of the Macy’s here in Boston!
Hey Robin, I would check and see if there are any events going on in your area. You never know! XO
You girls look great! This event sounds like it was so much fun. I had been reading about Macy’s spring event elsewhere and was instantly jealous there wasn’t one near me. Chicago would have been my closest option and from your pics it looks like I missed an awesome event!
Thanks, Roxy! You are so sweet. I think Macy’s is doing events like this all over the country, so definitely check and see if there’s something going locally. We recommend checking out the Spring Flower Show. XO

Looks like a fun event with lots of great freebies! Can I be honest though–i have a hard time spending that much on a pair of ripped jeans — Just sayin’. haha.
Hi Brianna, There’s nothing like professional rips haha! We have used a razor blade to rip up some jeans at home and they turned out great 🙂 XO
Looks like such a fun and cute event 🙂 Glad you guys had a good time!!

Looks like everyone had fun at the event. I haven’t been in a Macy’s in quite some time and I used to shop there all the time. Have to check out what’s new for Spring when I get back.

This looks like such a fun event. Lots and lots of style all in one room!
I know right, we had a lovely time! XO
Macy’s is one of our favorite places to shop. We’re in Kansas City so our style is a little behind the rest of the country. Still, they have fashion forward pieces for every market.
Hi Deb, Totally agree that Macy’s is a great store. Find the pieces you love and make it your own. XO
tp keane says

Tiffany Khyla says
This looks like such an incredibly fun event! I love all of the fun activities and all of the colors. Also – photobooths are my favorite! A party without a photobooth is incomplete. I’m glad y’all had a blast!
Thanks, Tiffany! This photobooth was so cute, we loved the props.
Louise Bishop says
Someone is going to have to chase me down and tackle me to get my black leggings from me. haha I’m addicted to them!
Bwahaha – we are in yoga training at the moment so feel like there’s an excuse there. You’re hilarious! XO
Love your outfits and that looked like a lot of fun. I gonna have to stop by my Macy’s more often.
