It's time to get into the spirit of Halloween, and there are plenty of fun items to be found. Sarah is spending the next few days and weeks in and around the different shopping areas in Oak Park looking for the perfect Halloween inspired shopping treats.
Sometimes we have to give an extra shout out to fabulous fashion. Madison Street Shoes in Forest Park provided the fabulous boots in Fall Fashion. And they were the perfect companion to Kaitlin's pant suit.
Special sections like Fall Fashion can't happen without a fair amount of help: community support, volunteer models, willing retailers and most importantly, advertising dollars. Since joining the team at Wednesday Journal publications I have been amazed at the community partnerships that develop and thrive because of local journalism.
The quaint brick exterior & lush floral gardens of the Maze Library in Oak Park provide a perfect back drop for our "Weekend Getaway." Whether a day trip antiquing to nearby Michigan City, or hopping on a plane for a two night excursion, check out our list of packable must-haves.
Dressing for success starts early. We asked area students to model these motivating back-to-school looks. All children were outfitted with clothes from Gap, Sugarcup Trading Company, Geppetto's Toy Box and Diana Shoes of Oak Park.
