Now that we’re about a week into August, it means it’s time to enjoy the final days of summer (in Chicago that could even be this weekend), prep for back to school (ah, those were the days) and read all the September issues as they’re released throughout the month. Elle went with Kristen Stewart for their big issue and took quite the literal inspiration from Chanel Fall 2014 for the editorial spread. But it’s not like this whole supermarket theme is anything new…
In just a few days, ChiCityFashion turns 4 (which is 28 in blog years) but because that day isn’t a Thursday and you can only throw it back on a Thursday (unless you flash it back on a Friday and unfortunately I can’t have a Throwback Thursday AND Flashback Friday feature on ChiCityFashion…conflict of interest, really) I thought today would be the perfect day to recap some of my favorite things that happened on CCF in the last four years.
Ready? Let’s do this.
Fashion month is approaching and there’s several pounds worth of paper (known as September issues) to prove it. Between fashion weeks all over the world, Fall merchandise rolling in, and the thickest magazine issues of the year all happening next month, you can’t avoid fashion in September. You just can’t…right, Anna?
While reading the most recent issue of Harper’s Bazaar during one of two times I read magazines (getting a pedicure and traveling…I’m still in Chicago so you can make an educated guess which one I was doing), a bag caught my eye in one of their editorials, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. So what do I do when I can’t stop thinking about something? Talk about it on CCF, of course.
Probably one of the ballsiest moves you can make in fashion is wearing an all white outfit. Not because it looks crazy, or people think it’s unflattering (which isn’t completely true) but because you need to be on alert the entire day. Things I suggest not doing in all white: sitting anywhere, leaning against anything, and drinking red wine (definitely the toughest for me). But if you’re up for the challenge, it can really pay off. I mean…how awesome do all these ladies look?
