On Saturday, November 8th, The Joffrey Ballet will present Clara’s Nutcracker Tea Party at the Palmer House from 1 to 3 p.m. If you love this classic ballet and have children you would like to introduce it to, then this is the way to do it in grand style. There will be an afternoon of fun, fantasy and whimsy that no child or adult will ever forget. As a guest of Clara, you will also receive tickets to opening night on Thursday, December 18th. This marvelous event is presented by the Joffrey Women’s Board and co-chaired by Whitney Lasky and Shawna Owen. Tickets are $200 for an adult and $150 for children. The Nutcracker performance runs December 18th through 28th at the Auditorium Theatre.
For tickets, please call (312) 386-8944.
In fashion news, I was so depressed looking for new wardrobe for fall and winter: The prices, especially in this economy, are out of sight! It seemed that everything I touched was so expensive so I have come up with some other ideas on how to update my clothes for the season. For instance, Louis Vuitton is selling the most gorgeous purse charms to attach to your handbags. Just clip them on to give new life to old handbags and to create a very chic look—all of the women in Paris are doing it so it must be so! Also, instead of a new jacket, I am just buying a couple of new scarves and throwing it over my existing ones. I love the Hermes oversized silk and cashmere ones and since they’re classics, they will always be in style. A good investment all around… Photo: top left, Louis Vuitton Monogramouflage cag charm.
