Downpour Chic

Due to my extreme frustration with the recent weather (can anyone in Chicago remember the last day we did NOT have rain? I didn’t think so), I thought I’d channel this into something helpful. When it rains, we all seem to either give up on how we look or just ruin our outfits. Neither one is fun so I’m going to turn something bad (daily storms that occur when you least expect it so you better have an umbrella at ALL times) into something good (an excuse to go shopping).

Chi City Trivia

Remember that trivia thing I wouldn’t stop talking about? Well it happened last night…and if you weren’t there, you missed out on a really fantastic game of trivia (FOMO kicking in yet?) and if you were there, you helped raise over $2,100 for Lurie Children’s Hospital soooo that’s pretty awesome.

Anyway, I wanted to try something a little different today. This isn’t a typical event recap. This will decrease your FOMO because you can now [kind of] participate in Trivia at the Dec, or today we’re calling it Chi City Trivia.

Just Keep Swimming

I started ChiCityFashion for many reasons, but one of them was to discuss fashion-related topics that I like. Today I’m trying something a little more challenging…discussing a category I’m not too fond of (but is anyone really?)

Let’s talk about swimwear…
