CCF Turns Five

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.

CCF Loves: Daniel Kelleghan

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.

Let’s Get Bundled

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.

CCF Loves: Zak Stemer

One of the most popular publications in Chicago, if not the most popular, has some pretty smart brains behind it (beauty too…see below). Everyone I’ve ever met from Splash (part of the Chicago Sun-Times if you’re not familiar) is really damn good at their job, regardless of their title. But the one person who really sticks out to me is the latest CCF Loves.
