You're Invited: Madewell Lollapalooza Party

Join me this Wednesday at the Madewell store at 932 N. Rush Street from 6-8 for a Lollapalooza party! With so many after-shows, private concerts and pool parties to attend, not to mention the actual festival itself we're all in need of an addition or two to our closets. And there's no better place to stock up on essential festival wear than Madewell. There will be champagne, sweet treats and a special shopping code just for us. Also, dress to impress (as per usual) and be included in the Tres Awesome round up right here on the blog.

Lollapalooza 2014 Festival Inspiration

I'm super excited to be capturing the festival style of Lollapalooza for Elle.com again at Grant Park next weekend (August 1-3). To get everyone in the mood let's look at some looks from years past.

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 Lollapalooza. Or in the immortal words of Nirvana, come as you are.

See you at Grant Park!!!

Pitchfork Music Festival 2014 Style - Part 2

Well the sun has set on another Pitchfork Music Festival, but we'll always have the memories and of course the pictures!

Got the chance to hang out with this babe yesterday afternoon. Lynette Astaire looks incredible here in her mary jane print suit and straw hat from Mexico.

Mateo looks rad in his mixed metals and flat brim cap.



Giorgio Moroder (aka as the godfather of electronic dance music) tore it up and got the party started on Friday night before Beck.



Sasha Hodges is part owner of the coolest vintage shop in town Kokorokoko. She wins the award for best shorts of the fest.



Pitchfork's creative director Michael Renaud looks rad in this hat they designed.

The Dum Dum Girls played a great set on Sunday.




Isa Giallorenzo of the cool street style blog Chicago Looks is doing it right here in this rad Led Zepplin T-shirt and black flower crown. 


Tuneyards was definitely one of my favorite performances of the entire festival, as you can see from the above photos shit got weird :)



Even though Pusha-Ts set started way late, he made it count with a strong but short perfomance.

Claire Molitor looks beautiful here in shades of blue, a radical geometric bolo tie, & big round sunnies.

Hundred Waters was the very first act of the fest on Friday and they were SO good. It was great to meet the lead singer, Nicole Miglis back stage and snap her portrait.

And last but not last least, this fine gentleman rocking out in his sisters blouse and a modified pair of Sungalsses.

Jackie Trezzo is keeping it real in big black sunnies this chic black get up.

Pitchfork Music Festival - BECK

Beck took the stage at Pitchfork Music Festival 2014 and utterly killed it. Dress in Saint Laurent and looking boyish for his 44 years he played through the classics from his more than 10 year catalog.


He got the party started with a number of his dance classic/festival friendly jams , like"Devil's Haircut" off of Odelay to his original hit "Loser" off of Mellow Gold. He also deliciously played a cover of Donna Summer's "I feel Love" which Giorgio Moroder (who played right before him) produced. He played "Get Real Paid" AND "Debra" from my favorite Beck album Midnight Vultures. All in all it was a pretty amazing way to kick off the Pitchfork Festival Weekend.
