When you’re going to be held hostage, there’s no better way than having a bunch of fashion gurus take over your turf. Such is the case with Flirty Cupcakes, who are surrendering their cupcake truck on Sunday for a sugar-filled afternoon.

The truck will be driving around Chicago as usual, but on this particular day, it will have a lot more than calories on board. The truck will be under the control of Gilt Groupe, the online clothing deals emporium, as it drives around to different locations around the city.
A special appearance by designer Cynthia Rowley will take place at the Bucktown stop, followed by a cocktail event at the Cynthia Rowley boutique to wrap-up the day. Sign up for Gilt Groupe while you're there and score yourself a free cupcake.
Check out the tentative schedule below, and follow the @SkirtPR Twitter handle on December 19 for exact locations, times and all the sugary details.

2:30 pm – 3:30 pm: Lincoln Park (Armitage/Halsted intersection) area
