Holiday Fashion Special











I know I'm a bit late on this, but me being late? What else is new? On the November 22nd edition of Newcity, Chicago Looks presented a Holiday fashion editorial entitled Loco for Local - focusing on a few local shops. See credits for each outfit here.

The shoot happened at the fabulous Palmer House, which is a downtown gem totally worth a visit. Plus they're the birthplace of the brownie, so if you're ever in need of a perfect space for drinks and dessert, here it is. See a bit more of it below:






Above is one of the Peacock doors, an homage to the famed House of Peacock (later C.D. Peacock), a historic jewelry shop located in the hotel. All three Peacock doors were designed by Tiffany's and are valued over one million dollars.

The Palmer House was opened in September 1871 and was almost immediately destroyed by the Great Chicago Fire. Founder Potter Palmer secured a record loan to fix the damages, and a few years later the hotel was back to being one of the fanciest in town.
