They don’t call it the windy city for nothing! Since the industrial revolution, Chicago has nearly quadrupled in population. It’s an action packed city where there is never a dull moment. And so with every opportunity the wind blows our way, we dress for the occasion!

Yvette Noel-Schure: October Collection Picks
Yvette Noel-Schure has been a “woman to know” in the entertainment and music industry for nearly three decades. She has worked tirelessly behind the scenes shaping the careers of acts that include Destiny’s Child, Adele, Mariah Carey, John Mayer, Will Smith and John Legend to name a few. She currently represents iconic performer and international super star Beyoncé and music legend, Prince along with a roster of talented entertainers. Not only has she mastered her career as a publicist but she is also a devoted wife, mother to three and grandmother to one. In this exclusive interview we’ll reveal Yvette’s personal style, how she manages home life on the go, how to stay red carpet ready for any event and why she considers herself a Caché girl.
When wagons first rolled in to Oklahoma City, there’s no way anyone could’ve imagined how this city that sprang up in a day would become a sprawling oasis in fly-over territory. It’s a laid-back life with oh-so-many things to see, do…and eat! So get your glam on and discover the hidden gem that is OKC.
Dine in world-class style 726.2 feet above the ground. Vast is a feast for both the palate and the eyes, nestled in the clouds at the top of the new Devon Tower downtown. Make your reservations in time to catch the glorious Oklahoma sunset while you enjoy modern cocktails and exceptional American cuisine.
Also housed on Devon property – but much more “down to earth” – is Flint, a restaurant and lounge offering contemporary American cuisine, a trendy patio with live music and a fabulous view of the Myriad Gardens. Flint is located on the ground floor of the historic Colcord Hotel.
Live like a “baller” in Bricktown! Enjoy down-home, southern cooking in this upscale restaurant owned by and named for much-loved OKC Thunder star Kevin Durant (basketball fans will love the sports memorabilia.) There’s always a wait – so make a reservation or come prepared!
This edgy new restaurant is named for the fabulous landmark it sits on – the Myriad Gardens. Park House features gorgeous nature and city views, patio seating, and contemporary American cuisine.
Plan your stay long enough in Oklahoma City to enjoy other favorite palate pleasers: Packard’s New American Kitchen, Cheever’s, Paseo Grill, Pepperoni Grill, Whiskey Cake, Ted’s Café Escondido, Kitchen 324, Big Truck Tacos, Nic’s, McNellie’s Pub, Hideaway Pizza, Ingrid’s, Lido, Red Prime Steak. For Sunday brunch, try Rococo’s, the Museum Café at the OKC Museum of Art, or have breakfast in bed at OKC’s only B&B The Grandison Inn.
Sip a cocktail and enjoy an unparalleled view of the sunset over the Oklahoma City skyline. Art After 5 only happens Thursday nights on the rooftop terrace of the OKC Museum of Art, but it includes access to the art galleries and features live entertainment.
If you’re passionate about both art and food, you must check out Urban Roots. This fabulously hip gem located in the historical Deep Deuce district of Oklahoma City was featured on the Food Network’s “Restaurant: Impossible.”
Crank up the swank at the W XYZ Bar & Rooftop Lounge at the Aloft Hotel in Deep Deuce, just north of Bricktown. Grab a signature drink, savor the killer view and dance the night away in style.
Other nightlife hotspots to check out on your visit: Kamp’s 1310 Lounge, the Red Piano Bar at the historic Hilton Skirvin, Nonna’s Purple Bar and RedPin Bowling Lounge.
Get tickets to see the NBA’s Thunder, MLB’s RedHawks, MLS’ Energy, NHL’s Barons or Victory Dolls roller derby. If you prefer to be in the action yourself, dive into riversports in the Boathouse District on the Oklahoma River, visit the indoor climbing space at Rocktown, rent a bike from Spokies to see OKC on wheels or plan a stop at Lake Hefner for bike riding on the trails or sailing.
Remington Park Horse Racing Track & Casino
Find Remington Park in the Adventure District near the Oklahoma City Zoo for racing, dining, live events and gambling. Thoroughbred horse racing has two seasons per year, and admission is free and open to all ages. Catch the race and dine in style from one of five levels with a track view at Silks.
Friday Nights in the Districts
New shopping and playing districts are springing up all over town, and four of them offer unbeatable Friday night fun:
1st Friday night of the month – Paseo District Art Walk
2nd Friday night of the month – Plaza District Live on the Plaza
3rd Friday night of the month – Premiere on Film Row
4th Friday night of the month – Hn8th Night Market (Midtown & Automobile Alley)
Other fun things to do in the OKC area include: local wineries/agritourism, tornado chasing (with a professional tour company ONLY), Rodeo Opry, real working stockyard in Stockyards City, antiquing in Guthrie, the Braum’s family dairy in Tuttle, and Route 66 sightseeing.
April 19, 1995 was a dark day in American history. The beautifully kept grounds feature a reflection pool, the Survivor Tree and a children’s memorial, and there’s also an extensive indoor museum. Visit this site to remember the past and draw strength for the future. The Memorial is flanked on each side by churches, and when you’re ready for a break, take a short walk north on Robinson Avenue to visit historic Church Row.
Go green! Acres of gardens, water features, artwork, children’s spaces, plus a dog park – it’s a breath of fresh air in the midst of the urban jungle! Shakespeare in the Park makes its home at the Water Stage, and concerts and movies are held on the lawn at the Performance Stage throughout the summer. An ice skating rink is erected each winter. Admission to the park is free, but if you would like to visit the Crystal Bridge Tropical Conservatory, there is a small admission fee. Don’t forget to eat at Park House while you’re there!
The Oklahoma State Capitol rests close to the heart of Oklahoma City, just a few blocks northeast of downtown. The Capitol houses some of the state’s greatest historical treasures and tributes, including the beautiful dome that was only added to the building in 2002. If you’re a history buff, once you’ve visited the Capitol, you’ll also want to check out the Oklahoma History Center, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum, and the Gaylord-Pickens Oklahoma Heritage Museum.
Fabulous exhibits from all over the world find their way here, and you shouldtoo. Photography, American art, European art, contemporary art and some of the world’s best examples of Dale Chihuly Glass. As if that isn’t enough, you’ll also find mission driven art house cinema at the film screenings in the Noble Theater, amazing cuisine at the Museum Café, Art After 5 on the rooftop terrace on Thursday nights and one of the best gift shops in town.
But the very most important thing to see in OKC is, of course, a personal stylist at Caché! Come by on the first day of your visit so we can outfit you with the latest styles for sightseeing – a chance to get your local stylists’ inside scoop on their city – or whenever you need a retail therapy break on your trip.
Hope to see you soon in Oklahoma City!

We’re always reading the fabulous feedback, questions and stories (sometimes hilarious stories) about what our Caché girls are doing across the globe. The events you attend, the comments you get about how stunning you look in that new dress, your thoughts (and second thoughts!) about what to wear or how to wear it and even some of your minorly embarrassing moments are what keep us inspired.
One thing you’ve been asking is how to transition from summer to fall, especially when it comes to date night. You don’t want to wear too much because what if the weather’s on the warm side, or you get nervous and things start to heat up (in a not good way). And what if you wear too little and it gets cold – at the end of the date, he takes you for a late night walk but he’s too distracted by your shivering lips to kiss you.
Whether it’s your first date, second date or you and your man just like to keep the flame burning (you go girl!) there are so many elements that play a role in the planning of great date night. And just like the seasons change so should your wardrobe.
One of the best things about pre-fall fashion is layering. This season is all about date night prints and details paired with leggings and cargo bottoms. These are the perfect pieces for any wardrobe because together they make a statement but can also be paired with items you already have in your closet.
For extra layers we suggest adding a scarf, shrug, light trench or jacket to any ensemble. These accessories are easy layering pieces that are quick to throw on and take off in unpredictable weather. And don’t forget the jewelry! We’ve added statement necklaces along with bracelets and earrings to this collection for the exactly the right amount of shine.
To get you started we’ve gathered some of our favorites below. Now that the hard part’s done, all you’ve got to do is show up and be yourself – fabulous in every season.
If you’re going to any or all, visit a local Caché boutique for the latest dresses and accessories, or just to say hi!
