Talk about the long and winding road - but what a ride!  
Vicki lives in Chicago's North Shore with her husband (and college sweetheart) Keith.  When not designing jewelry, mining fashion sites, hunting for an elusive pair of shoes in her size, or styling & personal shopping, she enjoys pilates, walks in the Botanic Gardens, art, travel and visiting her kids - one West Coast, one East Coast.
