Refinery29 loves keeping our readers constantly updated on the latest and greatest sales, shopping, and fashion events happening in this great city of ours — so, we would not be doing our due diligence if we didn't mention the Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival. The two-week-long festival of fashion (and food!) begins today and culminates on September 6 with Fashion's Night Out — how apt!
A whopping 460 stores, 275 restos, and 60 hotels are participating this year, so if you can't find something to do for the next couple of weeks, it's kinda your fault. Festivities include fashion shows, culinary events, in-store soirées, celeb appearances, concerts, and MUCH more. There's seriously everything offered, from smile and style tips from a previous America's Next Top Model winner to an outdoor foodie festival.
Style guru and E! correspondant Kelly Osbourne kicks off the festival with a Fall Trends Fashion Show at Pioneer Court (401 N. Michigan Avenue) today at 1 p.m. Not a bad way to spend your lunch hour in our opinion. Check out the full schedule of events on the Magnificent Mile website, because you don't want to miss a thing!
