Chicago Style Series: RUNAKO

  One of the best things about Chicago is that it holds so much talent! Last Thursday the Chicago style series hosted at Underground, featured the Runako brand. Proving to be modern and eclectic as each new look took the stage,  this brand is something you can take to the streets and wear on the daily….

Making a Buddha!

    Here is the BTS vid from working with my friend Erin Leary! She is a local Chicago artist who makes beautiful custom and unique one of a kind pieces with her line, BeBuddha Jewelry and now apparel!! It was incredible to see her amazing ideas coming to life in this apparel shoot for her new…

West Loop Pop Up Shop!

When I get a little restless I find myself heading to events where my attention is split between all of the things a girl wants to be surrounded by! Over on Carpenter St in the West Loop of the city I headed to The Hair Loft, where sweets, treats, jewels, and gems awaited. As I…

Bang Bang

In case you didn’t get the memo, I would just like to resurface this wonderful gem who is, Lawrence Taylor. Attending South by South West is a wonderful experience for anyone, but to be able to showcase in front of people and give their ears a fresh, rich, and soulfully addictive sound is uncommon.  …

SX-CHI!

It wouldn’t be a true SXSW if I didn’t go to a show that supported amazing and talented fellow Chicago peeps!   During Austin’s South By, Sixth Street is where most of the madness lives, which made it not so surprising to find Golden! (MG&F’s front man Mike Golden’s new band) in the middle of…

Macello’s

Hands down, my favorite place to dine while I’m in Chicago, is Macello’s!  A few blocks west on Lake street is the perfect little modern Italian restaurant. If it’s your first time going you might feel like your looking in the wrong area, but once you see the brightly painted giant  “balloon” out front you…

Inspired by vines!

As a fashionista it’s important to mess around, mix up and create new outfits with different styles! Of course it’s always easier and more fun when you have someone to dress up! I am most inspired by my surroundings, so in this shoot the lush green vines contrasting against the dark shadows of the brick alley gave an…

La Jolla

At some point in most everyone’s life the thought comes to mind that they need to make the trek to the west coast. And they most certainly should! If you are deciding to go, then La Jolla, San Diego needs to be on the top of your list! The scenery is a visual overload of…
