Everyday at Cheeky, we’re putting in our blood, sweat and tears to create an inclusive community for definitively bold, impudent and saucy women. After passionately Cheekifying the city for five years, we wanted to pause to reflect on our accomplishments (everyone should try this) and treat ourselves to a colossal, chic bash second to none. On Oct. 10 in true Cheeky fashion, we did just that. Chicago’s tastemakers, friends, family and, of course, Cheeky readers (our most important peeps) toasted …
Guests filled Ermenegildo Zegna’s newly designed store on the Magnificent Mile, Wednesday, to celebrate its debut. Yet, this party was not your ordinary store-opening soiree.

The summer weekends are going faster than Cubs and White Sox talent, if you know what I mean. Sure, the Cubs and White Sox seasons have been nothing short of a disaster when it comes to performance and team standings, but sadly, talent and quality fall lower on the expectation list each year for Cubs and Sox fans when considering a visit to Wrigley or the Cell.

Now, I’m not saying you won’t catch a gem of a game from the Cubs or Sox this season, but considering both ball clubs … Read more
She is fun, fabulous and fierce. She is chic, intelligent and in-the-know. But most of all, the Cheeky chick is the kind of woman who embraces, admires, respects, smiles at and opens her heart to other fabulous chicks. Now THAT'S Cheeky, darling!
