The Perfect Pleated Skirt

All summer I've wanted a long flowing black pleated skirt. The type of thing you could dress up or down depending on your shoes and accessories. And I'm happy to say I found it (unexpectedly) at Banana Republic!

BR generously gifted me a look from their current collection and it was hard to pick just one outfit! They have so much great stuff, but as I mentioned before I'd been on the hunt for a long pleated skirt, and this is the real deal. It's the exact right length, it holds it's pleats (even in a suitcase) and makes me feel like I'm floating down the street. You can get one of your very own right here.

Love this silver tote. You can get an even cooler gold one online here.

You can pick up this rad lace tank in stores or get a similar one with short sleeves online. 

In short if you're not checking out Banana Republic you're missing out on some fly shiz. They have a 40% off sale going on right now online. So there's no time like the present!


Natalie at the MCA

Natalie is a friend and producer who I work. I've always admired her style and so excited when she agreed to let me snap some pics of her last week. She's wearing a J.Crew Garden Party Necklace which you get right here.


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.
