73SPRINGSHOP - The Greatest Shopping Experience You Will Ever Have

I am back to round out the rest of your December schedule with more events focused on ME. I assume you've already planned your outfit for my Dempsey & Carroll 2015 Calendar event on December 2nd, which is great. I applaud you for being so organized. 

Now, let me be straight with you. The Dempsey & Carroll event is going to be a rager. A 5:30 pm Tuesday night paper-themed cocktail party always leads to a wild time with stories you can only allude to the next day at work without being judged heavily.

botanicals

September Social

Pop the champagne, it's time to toast the new season!

If you share this sentiment, you are in luck! Thanks to founder Elaine Brooks, you can read so many amazing lists on the list collective...
