Chicago is a city full of innovative style. I can't tell you how many times I've done a double take on the street because of what someone was wearing.
So for this post, I stopped to take pictures of some people whose ensembles I couldn't avoid checking out...
I was drawn to the look Jena was sporting before even looking up to see who was wearing it. After a second, I realized that she's the mind behind Chi City Fashion, a prominent Chicago blog(ger) that you should certainly be following.I'm a sucker for neutral ensembles which Is why I initially stopped Jena, but when I noticed the pink trainers I was absolutely sold.
I was drawn to Stan because of his leather jacket. I've been wanting a new one myself so I suppose you could call it envy. He also had a killer gold lion ring which, unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to take a picture of but I promise...it was great.
You might recognize Alex from our last post. I saw him when I had walked into Vans, after work, for their college open mic. Lex was performing and looking so cool in his new Buzz Lightyear Vans. What I love about his style is that he has an eye for finding really interesting pieces that I, personally, don't think would work and then he pulls it off perfectly.

During a recent trip to Horween, I came across a plush leather hide I'd never seen before. The sunlight peering through the window of this family-owned tannery caused the color to glimmer; a rich forest green. It wasn't until I touched it that every possibility of moving on passed it was gone...
Dawn|Dusk is more than a recent collection; it's a concept to embody. This unisex tee is an extension of what birthed the line of accessories.
I designed this symbol to visually communicate the beauty and balance of dawn & dusk. They are bookends to the day; similar in purpose but different in approach. They are faithful but not monotonous. They are opposite but equal.
So for Lucy's Fall/Winter project, we decided to expand on this idea. Continually inspired by light & movement, she endeavored to use leather to craft shapes & designs that express this particular inspiration. In doing so, she created three distinct abstract designs and then worked them within three distinct accessories; hanging wall art, a tote and a clutch.
