I am so thrilled that House of Consignment is debuting tonight on Vh1 for two reasons. First, their is going to be another fun show about people who work in fashion on television and two (this is the main and real reason) because my fashion BFF/girlfriend and friend of OJ&B, Jena Gambaccini, of ChiCityFashion.com is on it!Many of my guys and gals know Jena as we have hosted events together and are inseparable during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. I randomly met Jena about four seasons ago waiting in the press line to get our media credentials for MBFW. We instantly hit it off! The first thing I remember about Jena was her Chloe shades and her awesome and fun style!

House of Consignment is about Corri McFadden who is the founder of eDrop-Off, an online luxury consignment destination. eDrop-Off is located in Chicago in the ever-posh Lincoln Park. Corri also hosts a weekly fashion segment on Chicago's popular morning show, "You and Me This Morning," is a contributor for Glossed & Found, an online magazine about everything fashion and beauty and writes a bi-monthly column for Refinery29. She also has her own lifestyle blog Style Block, shopedropoff and newly launched site CorriMcFadden.com.
The cool thing about the show is that the ladies have actually worked at eDrop-Off before this show happened. Jena is the company's social media associate and she is so funny, down to earth and full of style! She is not only my fashion buddy but she is also my eating buddy! She is so cute and thin yet she can eat with the best of them. She also always goes the extra mile. If you compliment a regular girl on their sunglasses they may say "Oh thanks, they are Prada," but with Jena it's "Thanks, they are Prada...Runway"
I wish Corrie and eDrop-Off the best of luck on this new and fab VH1 show! I cannot wait to see what happens as the season unfolds! I am so happy slash proud slash excited for Jena and I hope to see more of her on the show!
