You know when something is just so fantastic but words can’t even describe its awesomeness? That’s how I feel about Chicago’s own Maybe Sunday. Whether or not you live here, any creative will appreciate what they’re doing (thankfully they have an online store!) And it all starts with the brains behind the operation — McKenzie Thompson.
We’re officially less than two weeks away from my favorite day of the year (which for most people is maybe Christmas or their birthday…but not for me). The first Monday in May is just around the corner but The First Monday In May is already here.
If you live in Chicago, I’m sure you have passed by a mural at some point that involves a bear wearing boxing gloves. If you haven’t, then you most likely never leave your neighborhood (and in that case you might as well live in LA). Regardless of where you reside or what you see in your ‘hood, we can all learn a little something from the Bear Champ today.
Word on the street is that there’s a new magazine in town doing things a little differently. If you’ve ever wanted to travel, meet new people and shop all from the comfort of your own home, then I
think know you’re going to dig The Collective Quarterly.
It’s not often I post about a photographer on ChiCityFashion but when I come across something so awesome, I just can’t help but spread the word. Last year at Wells Street Art Fair I discovered Bruce Jeffries Reinfeld. I was immediately drawn to the Prada piece (see below) and didn’t think twice about purchasing it. Now it resides right above my bed and I’m still obsessed with it.
All of his photos start in black and white, then he digitally airbrushes color onto each image. It creates these whimsical yet beautiful photos that I am so intrigued by. The coolest part about Bruce? None of his photos are staged or manipulated. He sees something as it is, takes the photo then creates his art from there.
While at the art fair this year I was really inspired by this piece…so I decided to add it to my collection.
