Bruno Magli hosted the second of their ‘Bruno Insider’ Dinner Series at RPM Italian in Chicago on May 3rd. Dinner guests received beautiful custom wine bags with Giuliana’s Prosecco, a pair of Bruno Magli shoes of their choice (check out my pair of Meggy Jac wedges!), and a beautifully illustrated menu with custom illustrations by Jordan Werre. There were vintage coffee tables books on the huge kings table as part of the decor along with the beautiful peonies and roses. The books contained previous shoots by the designer going back throughout the 80 year history of the brand.
Being one of about 15 or so people there was such an honor and a privilege and I loved meeting some of Chicago’s most stylish digital influencers and bloggers. And of course meeting Guiliana Rancic was such a pleasure! I so enjoyed speaking Italian with her and talking about all things Italian!
There was nothing about this dinner that I didn’t love. From the homemade pasta and delicious meal, to the amazing conversation – many of these incredible women that I met have thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of followers. How they engage with them, what inspires them, and how they balance it all was fascinating to learn about.
And of course – to return home with a gorgeous pair of Bruno Magli shoes? Come on. That was the icing on the cake! And since the event, I have already ordered three more pairs because they are so incredible.
Thank you Bruno Magli, RPM Italian, and Guiliana Prosecco for such an amazing evening!
