Thank you for supporting the 2017 Comer Children’s Kids’ Fashion Show. Because of your generosity, we raised more than $121,000 to fund critical care programs at the University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital. Over 400 adults and children participated in the annual event, to advance our mission and improve the lives of the many children and families we serve.
Birkenstock’s waterproof version of their classic Arizona shoe came up the most among our experts. Frankie’s on the Park founder Lisa Burik packs pairs for her daughters, who go to sleepaway camp, because they’re “great for the rustic walk from cabin to shower house and hold their own in the showers.” Burik, who’s had a pair herself for at least three years now, adds that they “dry in no time, especially if left in the sun for a moment.” This makes them especially “easy to toss in my bag,” says Summer Hull, travel blogger and director of travel content at the Points Guy. “When I used them in London during a shower in the arrivals lounge, I just wiped them dry with the towel once I was done and they were good to go back in my backpack.” When I tested them at my gym’s shower, they dried by the time I was dressed and ready to pack them up. Another selling point for the Arizonas is that they double as casual footwear — justifying the slightly higher price point. I frequently wear mine out to picnics, on beach days, and on warm-weather walks around the city.
As reported by Page Six, Marks recounted a phone call from her store manager after Shah and her friends stopped by for some retail therapy. According to Marks' manager, Shah had purchased some items but after she and her crew were gone, a snakeskin clutch was missing. Shah later defended herself by stating it was Marks' employee who had made the mistake, according to Reality Blurb!. She then shaded Marks' store by calling it a "swap meet."
Despite the negative review from her fellow castmate, Marks' store seems to be doing well and has even hosted a pop-up event for Frankie's on the Park. Marks also carries Brooks Marks' line, and proudly displayed her son's baseball cap. While Marks' fashion choices have been questioned at times, fans can't deny she has a unique style and a keen eye for jewelry.
