Street Style: NBA wives shop for designer gear at Hudson’s Bay

To break up NBA All-Star Weekend’s cycle of game-watching and after-parties, Hudson’s Bay hosted a charity shopping event for the National Basketball Wives Association at the Room, where spouses of sports stars browsed Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang while showing off their own incredibly swanky ensembles. Here, some of the best looks from people like Real Housewives of Potomac’s Charisse Jackson Jordan.
