Sarah Jessica Parker appearance at Nordstrom: Shoe-holics rejoice: Sarah Jessica Parker, who easily qualifies as the queen of stilettos thanks to “Sex and the City,” drops by Nordstrom Michigan Avenue Mar. 7 at 4:30 p.m. to present her new SJP collection, featuring handbags (starting at $245), the Manhattan trench ($495) and, of course, a heap of stylish heels (starting at $195, above).
Work often keeps me running from the office to events, so having easy-to-match options in my wardrobe keeps life simpler — if they’re on sale, even better.

Guilt-free: Shop local designer jewelry for less during Gilt City Chicago’s weeklong sale, ending Feb. 28. For $250, you can score a private jewelry-making class with designer Laura Lombardi, plus 20 percent off her designs. Or, for $150, host a private shopping event for four with 20 percent off pieces by Cities in Dust (above).
