Open For Business

I admit, Chicago is no New York. We are a city that actually sometimes sleeps, our pizza clearly isn’t everyone’s favorite and we don’t have a cool boutique on every corner. With that said, I love sleep, I prefer Neapolitan style pizza and we just had four awesome new stores open this month. Care to find out who has graced this fine city with their presence?

Creatures of the Wind on Net-a-Porter

As someone who obsessively checks “what’s new” on Net-a-Porter just about everyday (even though I know new items are only posted Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) I was beyond excited to see they recently picked up Creatures of the Wind. COTW Designers Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters graduated from SAIC in Chicago and it’s amazing to see their growing success in the fashion scene. Although I don’t know them personally, I’m so proud to see such success coming from Chicago-native designers. Always love a good boost to our fashion reputation in this city 🙂

Big things to come from this design duo in the future! Check it out…

Shopping Local on 190 North

As you all know I’m all about supporting fashion in Chicago. So when I came across this 190 North segment the other day I knew I had to share! Featuring boutiques like Local Lookbook and Cerato, it’s really great to see that the Chicago fashion scene is well-supported and holding strong.
