Haute Couture Club of Chicago - Annual June Luncheon at The Chicago Firehouse Restaurant

The Chicago Firehouse Restaurant

Happy Monday!

On Saturday I had the pleasure of dining with some of my favorite people. The Haute Couture Club annual June luncheon was held at the Chicago Firehouse Restaurant. The firehouse is a well-known dining attraction in Chicago. It is located 1401 South Michigan Avenue. It was my very first time dining there.

The club party was on the second floor where we were able to freely move about the room to chat with old friends and get acquainted with some new ones.  The new board is installed at the luncheon and it is the last time we will meet as a group before our Fall kick off meeting.  I was happy to see all of the beautiful ladies and to have a chance to help celebrate 50th years of the HCC.

Good Cake - Different but Good
I forgot to bring my camera. So I only snapped a few pictures with my phone.

The bodice was adorned with glass beads

I sat with Rhonda, Sandra and several other ladies (no picture).  I guess I could have stood up to take the pictures.  Oops!

It's was a good afternoon.  I was happy to see my friends.  Our next meeting is in September.  I'm very interested to know the Fashion Show theme and the workshops and programs for 2015.  If you are in the Chicago land area, plan to stop by or become a member.  Our website is located here.  Please come out and join us.

Happy Sewing!
