crave chicago.

October 28, 2009


I’ve just become a huge fan of CRAVEchicago. I went to a “coffee chat” with about 30 dynamic women last week, and was totally impressed. CRAVE is in other cities too…Boston, Portland, DC, Vancouver & Seattle. To find out more, click here.

I wanted to post about a local event they are planning…with plenty of fashion and indie vendors who will be there. I will be there…so if you sign up too, please let me know!
