My Prized Fashion Possession on Refinery29

When asked the question “whats the most prized possession in your closet?” my answer will always in some way involve Proenza Schouler. When approached with this very question by Refinery29, the first thing that popped into my head was my custom PS1 of course. Since they already covered that, I decided to give them something different…but still Proenza.

So what did I choose?

The Colorful World of a PS1

If there is one bag you should invest in, it’s the Proenza Schouler PS1. Hands down. [Not just because I eat sleep breathe Jack and Lazaro] but it’s the best carryall, made with the most amazing quality materials…and it just looks awesome. In my eyes, nothing can beat this PS1 but with so many shapes, fabrics and sizes…you’re bound to find one you love.

Now PS1s aren’t just bags anymore…they’re wallets, totes, pouches  etc. Exciting, right?! Check it out…

Chi City Closet: My Custom Proenza Schouler PS1

This is the ultimate Chi City Closet post; where I’m finally sharing photos of my custom Proenza Schouler PS1! You got a sneak peak last week in the Proenza Surprise post but I had to build up the hype just a little bit more, right? :)

This is the medium Proenza Schouler PS1 in purple python with black python trim and a neon yellow suede interior. It’s officially the most amazing item in my closet and I don’t think anything will ever top it. Enjoy!

Thank you to everyone at Proenza Schouler, including Jack and Lazaro, for helping me design this bag. Thank you to Charity Buzz…because without them, this wouldn’t have been possible. And thank you to Amy Creyer of Chicago Street Style for taking the amazing photos of me with my custom PS1!

It was actually the 2 year anniversary of ChiCityFashion.com on Friday so this officially my celebratory post. Thank you all for supporting my blog for the last 2 years. It means the world to me.

A Proenza Surprise

Remember this post from my New York trip in July? Well the day has finally arrived…and I received my custom Proenza Schouler PS1 I designed with Jack and Lazaro this summer! I still can’t believe this is real, but yeah…it happened.

I want to share with you amazing photos of this bag, but unfortunately I don’t have a lot of time (especially in daylight…which we get like 5 hours of now) to do that. So for now, here’s a sneak preview including me opening the package from New York and the special engraved plaque on the inside with my initials.
