Entertainment: OC Housewife Gives Chicago Makeover

Last night, Gretchen Rossi (known from Housewives of OC on Bravo) made an appearance at Chicago's own, Watertower Place during their In Fashion Lounge that is including appearances from numerous housewives leading up to Fashion's Night Out. Gretchen, known as the Barbi entrepreneur in the past 6 seasons didn't showcase her current hand bag or cosmetic line. Instead, she ran around watertower and in about 40 minutes put together some looks from stores found in the mall that were styled "OC worthy". How does the Chicago women look OC? Ask Gretchen. She picked up looks from BEBE, White House Black Market and Betsy Johnson to name a few. She explains her look as, "girly-girl and loving dresses." She explained she loves mixing high and low priced items to complete a look, including the one she wore last night. She bragged she got the bling necklace from TJ MAXX and the tank top from Target, while her shoes and skirt were designer splurges.
These were the picks that Gretchen put together with her speed shopping spree for fall looks. She included a fall trend she likes, color blocking and she may wear that pink dress to the grocery store. She loves BEBE and picked the black retro dress form Betsy Johnson because it reminded her of being a housewife in the 1950s. She is a busy lady these days between her handbag line which is growing to 'everything else in the closet' to a cosmetic line to (she shared with the Chicago fans) a mens line debuting next year. A Q&A finished off the night.
