Oh, food. You’re so magical. We love you when you’re green, organic and chia-blasted but when you’re fried, full of gluten or both then we hate you (well we love you at first and then we hate you). Is there a happy compromise? Perhaps the love / hate relationship can be a little more on the love side? Let’s find out.
It’s rare to come across a personal style post here on CCF and not find at least one piece from space519 (one of the best, most well-curated boutiques in the city). I’ve mentioned the store several times throughout various posts, including The Great Discovery…because it’s my go-to place for discovering new designers. But who exactly is responsible for this awesome place? This month’s CCF Loves — Jim Wetzel and Lance Lawson.
I’ve had a very interesting relationship with LA over the last ten or so years — it used to be my favorite place in the world, but when I got a little older (and traveled to more places) I started to think about it much differently. After a trip last week, though, I’m starting to see the City of Angels (and Palm Tree Instagrams) in a whole new light…and not just because the lighting is always really good.
I am way excited for this month’s CCF Loves because not only is this chick super cool but she loves food just as much as I do…and actually has a legit cause for making it the main focus of her career. If you don’t know Jessica Murnane, you need to know her now…
Every year I like to do some sort of Lollapalooza post but I always have to change it up. It’s such a huge event that attracts people from all over the world and it’s pretty cool to have it here in Chicago. Last year, it was all about those Lolla Dos and Don’ts and this year, I’m pretending to be Anthony Bourdain for just a sec.
