It’s no new news that fashion embraces youth, and models continue to start younger and younger. It’s something we’ve just gotten used to and to hear about a 16 or 17 year old walking the runways in Paris and Milan is just as common as a Lindsay Lohan mishap where it was “definitely not her fault.” But it really gets you thinking…what exactly were you doing at this age? Probably not getting photographed by Annie Leibovitz (but if you were, good for you).
I promised myself I wouldn’t do a Halloween post until at least one week before “the big day” (if I decided to write one at all), but with bags of candy basically getting stale on the shelves (they have been there since August, after all) I figured…why the hell not? I’m giving in. But I’m warning you, I am a Halloween hater.
You know I like to throw it back every once in a while on a Thursday but today we’re doing something a little different. It seems like we can’t get enough of the term “basic bitch” (I find myself saying the word “basic” in that reference at least once every other day) so I thought I’d make a little confession to you. This isn’t easy but…
I used to be basic.
If you’ve been on Instagram at all in the last week or so and happen to follow that really awesome @ChiCityFashion account, then you probably noticed the scenery hasn’t been looking much like Chicago. Between Oktoberfest in Munich and exploring Amsterdam for the last few days, I’ve experienced a lot of cool stuff that I just can’t keep to myself. So why not share? If you find yourself in either of these two cities any time in the near future and/or are looking for some unique shops to discover, then you’re going to want to listen up.
