Or as we’d say on AIM circa 2001 — BaCk 2 SkEwL kEwL. Whether you’re still in school, still paying for school although you’re no longer in school or just want to feel a little nostalgic for second / have an excuse to go shopping, then listen up.
Last year, I decided to go a different route here on CCF for this weekend’s popular music festival — instead of a “what to wear to Lollapalooza” type of post, I thought I’d get all Anthony Bourdain on you and create The Lollapalooza Layover — basically what to do this weekend if you’re in town for Lolla and will not be at the festival from open ’til close. But a lot has happened in a year. So it’s time for an update!
If you’ve been on Instagram at all in the last week or so and happen to follow that really awesome @ChiCityFashion account, then you probably noticed the scenery hasn’t been looking much like Chicago. Between Oktoberfest in Munich and exploring Amsterdam for the last few days, I’ve experienced a lot of cool stuff that I just can’t keep to myself. So why not share? If you find yourself in either of these two cities any time in the near future and/or are looking for some unique shops to discover, then you’re going to want to listen up.
So I went from wearing shorts and a t-shirt yesterday afternoon to freezing my ass off in a sweatshirt this morning…you know what that means? I live in Chicago…and fall has sprung.
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.
