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?!! :)


Good Day Chicago - Best and Worst Looks from the 2015 Oscars

I got the chance to chat Oscars Red Carpet fashion this morning on Good Day Chicago with Ryan Beshel, Amy Tara Koch and host Darlene Hill.  Despite Reese Witherspoon's call to #AskHerMore (than what she's wearing) and the cool feminist acceptance speech that Patricia Arquette gave for her role in Boyhood this is basically a discussion of pretty and not so pretty dresses.

Lupita Nyongo took the prize with her 6000 pearls, closely followed by Emma Stone in Eli Saab and Margot Robbie in Saint Laurent.  And the ladies that missed the mark.

And the worst...

Scarlett Johanson would have been wise to leave the Fraggle Rock necklace at home, Chloe Grace Moretz was overly excited about her pockets and beautiful Julianne Moore had a rare mis-step in this Chanel saran wrap and tin foil number.

It's easy to make proclamations about the stars and their dresses while watching the Red Carpet from my couch and making my way through a "family" size bag of cool ranch Doritos.The gals over at ManRepeller ask, what if you had gotten a last minute invitation? What would you wear?

After wiping my hands free of Dorito dust, I would casually lean into my closet and pull out this Valentino Haute Couture confection or this Prabal Gurung sequin long sleeved number. It should be noted that my inability to choose one dress shows how hard this is.  I would also, probably end up on the "Worst Dressed" list with either of these gowns.
