Karyn





Karyn and Kirsten (below) were selling their vintage picks at the Berlin Bonanza sale yesterday. If you missed it you can still shop Karyn's tasteful finds at her Max & Chloe Vintage Etsy shop.

Some other Bonanza sellers last Sunday: The Gaudy God, Sister Man Vintage, Joules Jewels, The Sometimes Store, Bummer Town, Onomatopoeia, Knee Deep Vintage, BombshellShocked... Most of them will be at our Vintage Heaven sale this weekend, come check it out!

Kirsten




Kirsten is the co-owner of The Sometimes Store, which is sometimes open but where you can always find something cool. They're actually having a Mother's Day sale on May 9th, when you can get 20% off if you bring a picture of your mom. The Gaudy God and his rad HOODZ will be there as well.

Kirsten is wearing a watch by Joules Jewels.

You can say that again


The other day I stumbled upon this great Chicago street style blog and I'd like to share it with you: Chicago's Got Style. According to Anna, its creator and upkeeper, "The idea for Chicago’s Got Style came into being one day when I was reading the street-style blog of a well-known fashion magazine (whose name will be courteously left anonymous) and came across a rather scathing comment about fashion in Chicago–or the supposed lack thereof. Of course you and I know that that Ms. Fancy Pants fashion journalist simply wasn’t looking hard enough!"

Wise words, Anna! Chicago's definitely got style!

Back to the Future

My dear friend Alma Wieser will be showing her fabulous re-creations in her 101 Years of Futurism Fashion Show:

Saturday April 24th, 2010
Doors open at 8, show starts at 9.
@ Heaven Gallery - 1550, N. Milwaukee - Wicker Park

Come see Renovar’s latest fashion project, influenced by Futurism, F.T Marinetti’s early 20th century Art movement. Exploring the ideas of Futurism 101 years later and the importance of history with an optimistic future. Rather than destroying the past as Marinetti propagated, the past is used to construct the new sartorial. Exhibiting Tech couture and fashion performance on an unconventional runway.
