I’m not a fan of death unless it’s in regards to leaves falling off trees because that means fall which means FALL FASHION SEASON. And in that case – Waddup, Grim Reaper.
I’ve partnered with my homies at Chicago Limo Service so in the following, I let them step in to help you make the most of it all. This is a compensated post chock-full of fashion week events you can roll in and out of lookin’ fresh as hell WHILE free from pump-induced pain.
Slay all day,

Getting Around in Style
Reserving a form of professional transportation is a great way to prepare for an event in Chicago, especially when there’s a group involved. We know it’s tempting to swipe over to the Uber app, but a limousine or Chicago Party Bus comes with conveniences to enjoy that can’t be found anywhere else. Not to mention, it works out to be a comparable price for each person when it’s split up among everybody in attendance.
With a limo or party bus reserved, you can enjoy multiple destinations after attending a fashion event. It’s like having your own mobile nightclub without the crowding or bad music. You’re able to stream your own personal playlist with auxiliary inputs that are found on the stereos, and there are cup holders for your beverages. It’s easy to socialize on board with the spacious interiors, and the overall convenience of not having to deal with traffic and directions is enough to convince any group.
…PS: For best results, pair with your booty bouncin’ A game. Git down with ya bad self, fashionista.
