After weeks spent buzzing about it, Lollapalooza finally kicks off this Friday, which begs the question: Do you know what you're wearing? Keep your fingers crossed that it turns out to be one of the first years in Lolla history when rain isn't in the forecast, meaning you can sport something other than Hunter boots and a sundress while dodging puddles ... or a mud pit.
Make up for all of the times when fashion was compromised by Mother Nature and head on over to Cynthia Rowley this Thursday for a pre-fest shopping fete. Local blogger Chelsea Cankar of Stic-of-the-Week (which oh-so appropriately stands for the first letters of style and last letters of music) has teamed up with the Lincoln Park boutique to provide Lolla-goers with 20% off full-priced items, like this feminine-yet-edgy, floral bouquet T-shirt from the Print Edition collection. And, it wouldn't be a party without plenty of sugary, sweet treats from Storefront Company to keep your stamina up, as well as enough champagne to lower your shopping inhibitions. Sound good? Send your RSVP to Damen@cynthiarowley.com.
When: Thursday, August 2 from 7 to 9 p.m.
Where: Cynthia Rowley; 1653 North Damen Avenue (between Halsted and Dayton streets); 773-528-6160.
