So you can imagine my surprise when I learned Halls Crown Center is much more affordable. They still feature lust-worthy brands like Tory Burch ...
... but they also carry more reasonably-priced clothing and shoes by BB Dakota, Jack, Tulle, Kensie and BCBG Generation.
And they don't just have women's clothing - they have two men's stores, a kid's store (Kiddo, so cute!) and a seasonal store, Deck the Halls, all strategically placed throughout Crown Center.
Last night, Melina and I made our very first shopping trip to Halls Crown Center with about 20 or so other local bloggers, all just as eager to see how the two stores compare (and what we could buy!)
It was a GREAT event! Halls gave each of us these cute red purses full of goodies, including a Rachel Zoe makeup bag/clutch, a Jones New York jewelry case, a pretty pair of earrings ...
and a $25 Halls gift card ... which we all proceeded to spend right then and there! Here's what I picked out - a fun, sparkly and comfy sweater by Jack. Only $78 before the gift card : )
Melina bought these adorable Toms - gray with white polka dots. So cute!
Halls also did several giveaways, which I did not win (boo), but Melina scored a really cool shirt for Matthew.
It was a fun night with lots of fashionable ladies (group pic coming soon from Lisa at Peridot Skys). Looking forward to next week's blogger event at Madewell!
