Can anything get better than cupcakes, wine and shopping all in one event? I am convinced not. I was in pure ‘bliss’ a few weeks back when I attended the Cake Plate Boutique Trunk Show at Sugar Bliss Cake Boutique in River North. Cake Plate Boutique co-owners Linsday Kroll and Paige Smith made the trek to chilly Chicago from sunny Napa Valley, California to dish up a special slice of their style expertise on how to master chic California ‘cool’ style right here in the windy city.
Numerous guests squeezed into the tight quarters to enjoy special discounts, style advice, refreshing white wine from Napa Valley, savory Sugar Bliss cupcakes and a slew of fashion forward designs from brands such as Milly, Lauren Moffatt, Trina Turk, Lulu Frost jewelry and much, much more.
I was lucky enough to get a quick interview with Cake Plate Boutique Owner Lindsay Kroll. Besides discovering our mutual obsession with cake plates (hence the name of the boutique), I am pleased to share the style secrets I snagged from Lindsay right here on TheWorkingWardrobe. Click below to watch the full interview.
I not only made new friends but was absolutely ecstatic about being introduced to designs by Lauren Moffatt, which resulted in an instant obsession. Christmas IS right around the corner. I was enjoying myself so much that I lost track of time and was late to the next event I had to attend that night. All in all the ingredients were just right to create the recipe for a successful night of fashion and yummy cupcakes too.
