The Entourage is PoPPiN!!!

Two years ago when I was brainstorming for my brand I decided to have a female movement to empower women. I decided to call these women my Egotistic Entourage! Ofcourse its not a normal entourage of women who just get together and laugh, gossip, or shop. Its bigger than that! Its about women who stand for something! Women who are driven to chase their dreams and to inspire other women in the process. To add some spice to the clique I decided to nickname each woman an alias based on their personality.

Meet Kelli Jones : Egotistic Entourage Alias: SPECTRUM

Kelli moved from NYC to Chicago about a year and a half ago to persue her dreams of opening a boutique and to be closer to her hunny bun. Sshhh don’t tell her I said that but Love will make you pack your bags and travel across states to make it work. I was presently living in NY at the time when she left so our mutual friend Dorian held a dinner party at her home so say goodbye and this is where our bond began.

It took no time for Kelli to adjust in Chicago, so fast that as soon as she touched down she immediately scoped out her location for her shop & literally it is a Shop. SHOP 847 to be exact.

Kelli’s Grand Opening of Shop 847 W. Armitage Ave Chicago IL was so impressive it was listed on

New York-minded Boutique in Lincoln Park

An Empire State of Mind

Shortly after moving to Chicago from New York, Kelli Jones, a former executive at L’Atelier Group, a New York fashion showroom featuring designers such as Three Dots and The Addison Story, had trouble finding her favorite brands at local boutiques. So, she opened a contemporary women’s store in Lincoln Park this past February. Shop 857 ( offers a blend of hip and classic clothing and accessories from underground designers as well as well-known lines, including Madison Marcus, Amanda Uprichard, Myne, Ever, House of Harlow by Nicole Richie, and Belle Noel by Kim Kardashian. “You’ll find items that are unique and different, comfortable and affordable,” says Jones, who frequently flies back to New York for fashion week and trade shows. “We’re very popular with Lincoln Park moms.” Her spring inventory includes a pink ruffled tube top from Amanda Uprichard ($115), an open-back floral dress by Madison Marcus ($370), a geranium-and-navy maxi-dress by Milly ($495), and a silk gray-and-cream panel top by The Addison Story ($92). On the casual side, look for a graphic blouse in mauve by Twinkle ($279), a green peat blouse by Joie ($198), and a front pocket blouse in taupe by AKA New York ($203).

The beautiful thing about the Egotistic Entourage is we do business together. If your in the Chicago area stop by this wonderful world of shopping because along with the awesome brands Kelli sales you can also pick up an Egotistic Chain. I wish you much success Kells! Do the damn thangggg!!! Muah xoxo Venom 😉
