Tea with Oprah
Well not exactly with Oprah! A girl can wish. I was invited to a private blogger and writer party hosted at the Oprah store on Monday. To be a Chicago native it's funny that I have never visited the store.
I love it! Each section focused on a theme that was very special to Oprah. Her work with Africa, the Girls school she built and even a look inside her closet where you could buy her clothes. You could walk in Oprah shoes literally!
We enjoyed tea from Talbott, cookies from vegan Karyn's Restaurant, and Work of Art cupcakes. Chef Art Smith signed his book for his adoring fans.
I met some new faces (including the Chicago woman to know Candance Jordan) as well as mingled with some familiar faces and Chicagonista team members.
