Whenever I come across something cool and unique, I have to share it with you guys…but even better when this cool and unique thing is MADE in Chicago! Let me introduce you to State Optical and its owner (this month’s CCF Loves!) Scott Shapiro.
If you or anyone you know has ever worked in retail, you know there’s some fantastic stories. This week’s guest, Drew Harris, has had some of the most prestigious jobs in the retail business…therefore, he not only has some very valuable information to share but you’ll want to stick with it until the end because his final story is one for the books!
How it’s taken me so long to have one of my favorite people in all of Chicago as a CCF Loves feature is beyond me…but I guess I have to build up some anticipation, right? She was a foodie before the term foodie was even a thing — say hello to Amanda Puck!
This month’s CCF Loves is making an old school favorite cool and modern AND doing it right here in Chicago (duh). Bridget McDermott of 84Rockwell is the creator of your new favorite handbag (which actually requires no hands at all) and making happen right here in the greatest city on earth!
When you hear about someone who’s had a successful career in fashion, we always seem to assume they’ve eaten (well, barely) breathed and slept fashion their whole lives. And for those who might admire fashion from afar (with hopes of maybe being involved in the industry one day) know that you don’t have to take the typical path. You might work in finance one day and then end up styling a major celebrity at a huge music festival the next…just like my latest Fashion Friend, Whitney Middleton.
