Chic on the Cheap!



Here’s an event you’re not going to want to miss! We helping to host a “Chic on the Cheap!” Trunk Show for Black and White Exchange.

This will be an inventory liquidation sale of ALL Black and White Exchange merchandise- which includes many brand new Bebe dresses- as well as other items at up to 50% off!

This is a deal you cannot miss out on! The event will be February 11 from 12-4pm at the Elements Conference and Event Center in Sharonville.

Make sure you RSVP here and we will definitely see you there!

Thanks to my intern Sara Elliott for helping me put this blog post together!

Big News for Blushing Brides

Are you a Bride-to-be or know of one? Make sure this is on your calendar:

The Afterhours Bridal Show at The Elements
May 19th, 8-11pm

They’re calling it “an unusual twist on your usual bridal show” … I like that because the last time I went to a bridal show it was lame-o.

But the gal organizing this event (Nidhi Bedi – an amaaaazing woman, and one of my good friends) is the complete opposite of lame-o, so I’m sure this show will be fabulous.

She said it’ll be an event where the brides get to meet and greet vendors at a bridal show but in a cocktail party setting. Sounds like a winner… especially when you can get in free! Print it this ticket for free admission to the show!

As if that wasn’t enough fun for you blushing brides-to-be… yes, it will be a great bridal show in a fun setting, but it will also be the official launch of A Bride’s Concierge (ABC*). Believe it or not, Nidhi is also heading up ABC (I want to know where she finds the time, seriously!)

She is the Director of Sales and Marketing at The Elements Conference and Event Centre, and she runs The Black and White Exchange Boutique (BWE), a consignment store we just featured in Cincy Chic. Nidhi told me that after she put on a successful bridal show last year which brought in over 1000 people in three hours, she was approached to launch ABC. Long story short, she loved the idea and ran with it! It will be a national company, but they came to her here locally to start with Cincinnati as the test market.

So, here’s the scoop on what ABC will be: It’ll be Cincinnati’s first online based educational resource for the bride. It’ll be where the wedding professionals in each category are there to educate and coach the bride. ABC will feature Cincinnati’s finest wedding vendors, real weddings, engagement stories, listings of what is happening in the city, educational seminars, bridal shows, and their big feature of “Ask The Concierge” which allows brides to come to us with questions that they have and they find the answers from the professionals that know best!

So, how can you take advantage of ABC? You can come to the Afterhours event and see the big reveal (they’re making the website live at the event). Or you can visit Nidhi in person! She decided to open up ABC’s “Concierge Lounge” in BWE where brides can go in, shop if they want, and then sit down with Nidhi to come up with a “big day” vision.

Nidhi said she’s super excited for brides to visit her at the Concierge Lounge for a free consultation to help develop a vision of what their dream wedding would be like. She’s very connected too, so I’m sure she’ll be a great resource for local ladies who need connections and advice to tie the knot in style.

If you need to get in touch with her, just send her an email at Nidhi@Abridesconcierge.com!

*FYI: A Bride’s Concierge will not be going by ABC. I was just lazy and didn’t feel like writing it out each time I mentioned it in this blog! : )

Black White and Chic All Over!

Back in January, I told you about how my friend Nidhi (who was just featured as a “Single & Successful” gal on Cincinnati Profile – check out her photo album… hotness!). She opened her own boutique called the Black & White Exchange. Well, now Cincy Chic and Black & White Exchange are partnering up for an event tomorrow (3/9) night called “Black, White and Chic All Over.”

I love the concept of the boutique because you can bring in cute cocktail dresses (or wedding dresses) you’d like to sell and then you can buy new and gently used ones! I hate to be seen in the same cocktail dress twice …but that can get expensive. Sites like renttherunway.com are a good alternative to wearing something new all the time on the cheap, but it’s tough to know what will fit you when you order through a website. So Black & White Exchange is a great way to love it, wear it, and exchange it for something else to love, wear and exchange.

See you tomorrow for this fun event!

Black and White Exchange Grand Opening Event Jan. 26

A couple weeks ago, I told you about Black & White Exchange, a new boutique opening in Sharonville. Since then, I went in and got the fierce “Fabushoe Friday” shoes pictured above. They’re Bebe brand (the BWE owner bought a bunch of Bebe stock to start the store) and I get so many compliments on them!

To celebrate the grand opening of the boutique, they’re hosting an event on Jan. 26 starting at 6p.m. When I told the owner I’d be blogging about my new hot heels, she told me to say that anyone who comes to the event on the 26th and mentions “Cincy Chic” will get an additional 15% off their purchase.

Remember you can buy and sell items there, so if you have any LBDs (or even wedding dresses) you want to sell, bring those with you to the event. See you there!
