2014 Met Gala Red Carpet (Part 1)

Of any posts here on ChiCityFashion, there’s nothing I look forward to more than writing about a red carpet event. But when it comes to something as fashion-focused as the Met Gala, I’m pretty much freaking out for weeks in advance (and I don’t even go to this thing).

So last night was the big night. We saw a lot of crop tops, dramatic backs and my predictions were oh-so-wrong (with one exception). Kind of a bummer that Amanda Seyfried and Jennifer Lawrence didn’t show up. I always look forward to seeing what they’ll wear (and unfortunately I wasn’t either of their understudies for this particular event) but we still have 87 looks to judge. Yes, 87. Take a deep breath and…let’s go.

Accepting The Kardashians

It’s funny that after having several fashion lines (you could try Sears), a multi-location clothing boutique (thankfully Chicago isn’t one of them) and a multitude of other things I literally can’t keep up with (pun intended) that it took Kanye West to get the fashion industry to accept Kim Kardashian. Which is ironic because no one really took his line that seriously anyway…

The Skinny On Magazines

How do you take your fashion magazines? Model? Celebrity? Or neither? (Because really, those are your only two options).

The “let’s use more plus sized models” and “stop Photoshop” conversations are still happening but after an interview with Vogue UK‘s EIC Alexandra Shulman over the weekend, there’s a lot more to talk about.

Kendall Jenner Is Happening

As you may have heard by now, Kendall Jenner walked in the Marc Jacobs Fall 2014 show last week and it’s all anyone could talk about. Until she took over Vogue‘s Instagram, then Love Magazine’s Instagram and next thing we know she’s front row at London Fashion Week. So how did Kendall become fashion’s new “it” girl? Is Kendall the new Cara? Let’s find out.

Style.com vs. Weather.com

Do you ever find yourself looking at fashion week street style photos and wondering what season they were taken in? Sometimes you’ll see sweaters in September (even though it’s 75 degrees…but fashion folks just love their Fall attire) or bare legs in Winter (because tights can easily ruin an outfit…unless they’re these). This season is no exception.

So let’s have a chat about the weather, but most importantly…how much does it affect the way you dress?
