Rad + Refined Pops Up [Once Again] in Chicago

They’re back! Rad + Refined is coming back to Chicago May 6 through May 12. From 10am to 7pm you can shop their curated selection of all things rad and refined, new and vintage….and always awesome.

At their last pop-up event, I got a peace sign Wildfox sweatshirt (that I live in) and a sweet vintage Alaia bra (that I’ll probably bring out for some music festival this summer). Jacqueline, the owner, will be there at the pop-up event and she’s SUPER rad (and still refined)…so I definitely recommend checking it out! Be sure to RSVP to rsvp@radandrefined.com.

Do Something & Support a Fashionable Cause with Pose

Still holding on to an old bridesmaid’s dress, black tie gown from seasons ago or even your prom dress? Well it’s time to put it to good use! With prom season coming up, every girl deserves to go but unfortunately not all can afford to go. This is where Pose and DoSomething.org come in…

Do Something is collecting gently used dresses around the country & donating them to those in need. If you have items to donate, you can find the nearest donation centers here.

Make sure to pose what you’re donating with the #PromforAll hashtag & they’ll promote all the poses via Twitter & Facebook. Remember, sharing is chic!

Floral Pants: They’re Taking Over

Whether you’re in LA, New York, Chicago or even Paris and Milan…floral pants are everywhere this season. What I love most about them is their versaility. From the silhouette (wide leg, skinny, trousers, etc) to the variety of colors and floral patterns, there’s a pair for everyone!

My obsession began with these Alexander Wang jeans, and I’m now on the hunt for another fun pair! Here’s a look at my favorites…
