Get Your Strut On This Thursday At Bloomingdale's

main-Dior
If you have yet to check out the recently revamped shoe department at Bloomingdale's (where have you been?), you'll want to make it a point to stop by this Thursday, May 2 — but you may want to practice walking in your highest heels first.
Starting at 6 p.m., shoppers will be invited to strut their stuff on the catwalk wearing spring’s hottest stems from designers such as B Brian Atwood, Chloé, Dior, and Giuseppe Zanotti. A panel of, um, well-heeled judges from Genuine Entertainment Chicago, Factor Model Management, and Chi City Fashion will choose the ultimate winner — who will get to keep the shoes she walked (or teetered) in. A second place winner will be awarded a Bloomie's gift card, and a third will receive a gift basket full of makeup goodies.
If you're inspired by what you see on the runway, you can feel good knowing that 10% of tracked sales made during the event will benefit Heartland Alliance, Vital Bridges Center on Chronic Care. We say, Mama needs a new pair of shoes.
Bloomingdale's, 900 North Michigan Avenue (between Walton Street and Delaware Place); 312-440-4460.
