Two weeks I was blessed to attend an amazing event held at The Roof on theWit Downtown here in Chicago for Ross: Dress for less! I really had a blast. The food was plentiful and so was the champagne. The venue was astounding! Can we talk about the view? Even though it was a chilly day here in the Chi the heated outdoor roof patio was nice and cozy. The clear walls showcased the amazing Lake Michigan and the detailed Chicago skyline.
Bloggers and the executive team from Ross were able to talk and we learned about how Ross started and grew to the Midwest. The Ross team members were warm, inviting, and very transparent. Many of them talked about their move to Chicago from the West coast and their families which always wins me over. At the end of the day a brand that has a real person approach is what most bloggers want.
When we made it to Ross (Which was around the corner on Randolph) I was super excited. I had $100 to use and I had a plan in tact. Since Dereon is growing like weeds I knew I had to stop by the children’s section and grab him a few items. What I didn’t know was I would fall in love with some many nice shirts, slacks, jeans, and sweaters. I was in my fashion zone. Dereon’s taste is pretty cool for a 7 year old. He likes to dress casual; slacks, shirt, tie, and loafers. Yes, he is 7 I am sure. LOL. I wanted to make sure I picked some things he would like and also some practical pieces that he was currently out growing. I was happy to find some great name brand jeans for his weekend wear, a really button up shirt with a tie, a Bears football jersey, some cute jogging pants for his basketball class, and much more. The prices of the clothes were very reasonable. I mean I got some Levi jeans for the kiddo for only $16.99 and they look super cute on him.
When I finally snapped out of my daze I left the children’s section and ventured off to see what other goodies Ross had in stock. Sense we were the first to shop in the store the options were plentiful. I mean home décor, purses, jewelry, shoes, perfume, coats, luggage, and the list goes on. My mother was able to score some UGG boats for under $65 dollars! Can you say a steal?
Overall my trip to the new Ross on 26 E. Randolph was amazing and I’ll be back soon!
