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.
When it comes to health and wellness, I’d rather take a bunch of herbs I can’t pronounce rather than a plethora of pills I can’t pronounce. And if you feel the same way, you’re going to be very interested in my latest CCF Loves — acupuncturist / herbalist / beauty entrepreneur, Giselle Wasfie, L.Ac.
If you love supporting local and discovering cool brands while doing so, then you’re going to love this month’s CCF Loves (I realize, that’s a lot of love)…Dose Market founder, April Francis.
Although my handwriting has significantly gotten worse as I type away year after year, there’s still something about good old fashioned stationery that I love. I do still take notes everyday (a to-do list resides in a notebook and in the notes section of my iPhone…so there’s no excuses) and a thank you card is always in order for holiday and birthday gifts. But what’s better than your traditional note? A NOURISHING NOTE (and one from Chicago!)
