my friend jess

I met Jess when I began reading her bubbly blog "make under my life" and had the pleasure of having dinner in Chicago two years ago with her when I was there illustrating a wedding for the exquisite wedding planner Marina Birch Design. I will be back in Chicago the end of July to illustrate another wedding for Birch Design Studio.

I think I need a Jess LC bag for the trip! Love this make-up zippered bag.
Jess is known for her fabulous Jess LC jewelry and now has added a great collection of bags called the Lake Shore collection. Jess will be in Macy's today from 5:30-7:30 at the State Street store in Chicago today for those of you lucky enough to go.
Take a look at her jewelry line and Lake Shore bags and totes, perfect for Summer.
I will be in Chicago the end of July and hope Jess has time to meet up with me.

Jess is one girl to watch!

Thanks so much for writing about the bags and the show, Patricia! It is so great to think back to the dinner at La Madia - two years ago?! Crazy.

Can't wait to see you again in July.
