Walk the Beach for Syd Rocks!

Hey it’s Syd! It’s so cool that I get to write about Syd Rocks and our upcoming awesome beach event. I was lucky enough to meet Billy Dec when I was 12 years old. He was hosting a charity event for Make A Wish and I was there since I was a “wish” child. This means that I had a life threatening illness and Make a Wish granted me a wish to help me get through the tough medical things I was going through at the time. I will never forget how much Make A Wish did for me and how much I appreciate Billy’s generosity and support for that organization.

Purely Fashion is Purely Genius

It all started with a pair of red shoes. What if a business could take a simple pair of mass produced shoes and turn that into knowledge, into a way to track a customer’s desires? These are the questions that Jeremiah Green, CEO and founder of Purely Fashion asked on a shopping trip he took on Michigan Avenue. Jeremiah noticed a huge problem in retail, which is that once a customer leaves a store empty handed, the retailer loses all the data on that person. What if that could be changed? Enter Purely Fashion.
