SAIC The Walk Street Style

The School of the Art Institute student Fashion show is this friday! It's one of my favorite events of the year, between the amazing student designs and the guests who pull out their most interesting pieces. Here are some of the best shots I've gotten over the past year.

You can still buy tickets to the SAIC Walk show here for a variety of time slots throughout the day. I'll be out with camera at the 5:30 show, so if you're planning on attending that one dress to impress :)


FTD Mother's Day Event

My mom is an true inspiration to me in life, work and creativity, my only hope is that one day my daughter Adeline can say the same thing about me. In honor of Mother's Day FTD is doing an event at Water Tower both today and tomorrow. You can experience this incredible flower wall made of 12,000 blooms in honor of all the moms!  There are free bouquets and floral workshops and you can take your photo against the wall and share on Instagram using #FTDMyMomIs for the chance to win free flowers for a year!


Coachella Festival Inspiration

ZOMG Coachella is this weekend and next!!! Are you experiencing outfit paralysis?! Well, fear not, because we've rounded up the ghosts of festivals past to give you inspiration on what to rock in the here and now to the mother of all festivals. 

Definitely wear an all white suit like Natalie Bergman of Wild Belle.

Try and work a lobster or two into your outfit. As seen here on Erika Wolfel.

Wear flowers in your hair like this lovely lady.

Go totally floral and wear Balenciaga.

Stripes always look amazing, especially as seen here on the front woman for Beast Patrol.

Wear a flowy robe over your outfit like Shanon O'brien of  Cheap Frills and Thrills.

Try an interesting hair cut like this man.

Wear a jumpsuit. You will always be a winner in a jumpsuit. Pippa White looks incredible in this one.

Wear a fancy backbpack like Jena Gambaccini of ChiCity Fashion

In closing, wear something beautiful/weird/interesting/cool to Coachella. Or in the immortal words of Nirvana, come as you are.

See you in Palm Springs!!!


Michael Petrucelly

Spring has made a big splash here in Chicago by dumping a bunch of snow on us. Michael Petrucelly is prepared no matter what the weather brings with his crazy fly fur hat and Moncler jacket. I know Michael from my time working at Leo Burnett where he is a producer. These are things I know about Michael: he is smart, funny and nice. But perhaps most importantly he is the drummer in an excellent band called Secratarial Creep which you can listen to here and here.


Monika on Michigan Avenue

Stone. Cold. Fox. What else is there to say here. Monika of Chicago in Stilettos brings it in her stetson hat and leather ensemble.

We ran into each other at a fabulous brunch that was thrown by Veuve Cliquot at Sophies at Saks Fifth Avenue on Michigan Avenue here in Chicago.

Here she is shouting loud and proud into one of the props from the brunch. Chicest cheerleader ever. For more fashion snaps Follow me on Instagram at TresAwesome.


NikeLab X Johanna F. Schneider Collection

I had the pleasure of getting an exclusive look at the new NikeLab X Johanna F. Schneider Collection which went on sale yesterday in every cool city BUT Chicago. The collection features outfits that build, layer by layer for different stages of a workout.  Based on the wearer's activity, the garments are designed to be fully adaptable, changing volume and position on the body for different stages of use. Even though the pieces are not available in person here in our fair city you can shop the entire collection at the Nike Store online.

Special thanks to Jeni Takekawa who was kind enough to model for me. She looks incredible in the NikeLab x JFS training cape which can be worn a million different ways.

We also got a sneak peek of the Nike Air Max 1 Ultra “City” Collection which will launch on March 8, International Women's Day.  I'm love each city represented, but am particularly coveting Milan, which is shown below. My only questions is where's the Chicago love?!! :)
