You didn’t think I’d leave you hanging with no final CCF Loves for 2014, right? Back from a long holiday weekend and just about onto the next long holiday weekend, here’s your final dose of CCF ♥ for the year.
On this day (or around this day) in 2009, I made a free account on WordPress (chicityfashion.wordpress.com) and started writing about fashion things because I was bored in college. I never even checked for grammatical errors, I put terrible collages together in Polyvore and all because I don’t know how to use Photoshop…and I thought no one would ever see this site. Fast forward, five years later…and holy shit, this is my job.
If you’ve been following my personal style posts for a while now, you might recognize the name Daniel Kelleghan. Or if you pay attention to the best photographers in Chicago, you’ll definitely know his name. Who doesn’t love to look at pretty pictures? Although when it comes to Dan, his photos aren’t just pretty…they’re truly incredible.
The one thing us Chicagoans all seem to want is a warm winter coat, but one that’s actually stylish…and doesn’t make us look like a marshmallow. It’s something I struggled with in the past but either designers have really stepped up their game in the outerwear department or I’ve gotten really good at finding stylish winter coats (perhaps a little bit of both?) This is a secret I simply cannot keep to myself. So if you’re freezing your ass off right now, this should be able to help.
As Swizz Beats once said “You Fancy, Huh?” And I’m thinking he might have been talking to me.
