How fitting that Elda de La Rosa's shop is situated inside the once-storied Edgewater Beach Hotel (the pink Barbie palace on Lakeshore). Her fabulous gowns deck out many Chi-lebrities for all of their various benefits and Board obligations. We know you wish you could own a piece of hers...*nostalgic sigh*
Well, in fact, you can, and soon. She is having her summer sample sale this Friday and Saturday at her shop where goods will be marked down between 25-75%. Because of this, we have a sneaking suspicion that your opera opening night gown is not going to be a problem. But please note, since her shop is by appointment only, you must call ahead 773.769.3128. [Racked Inbox]
