Donate your denim in Pilsen this Saturday and get a 15% discount at The Shudio!


Message from the Runway Addicts blog:

Saturday, December 17th we will be collecting denim garments at the chic and eco-friendly boutique The Shudio located at 1021 W. 18th Street in Pilsen. Any garments donated will go to those in need or will be used to create wall insulation to help build communities to keep homes warm this winter. The BLUE JEANS GO GREEN program created by the Fabric of Our Lives company accepts denim year round to grow communities using repurposed denim that is turned to wall insulation that has been proven to be eco-friendly and safer than the tradition fiberglass wall insulation. We have a goal of 150 denim garments that afternoon and everything you give will go directly those who need it most.



During the denim drive we'll give 15% off a Shudio purchase to anyone who donates denim, a special give away, and a free gift from Runwayaddicts! There will also be a DIY workshop that shows you how to patch up your favorite denim so you can hold on to them a little while longer. Please keep in mind anything that you give will go directly to those who need it most.

Here's a way of crossing off a few naughty names on your Christmas list: Shop Sensual, an erotic pop-up shop happening at Reunion studio in Humboldt Park from Friday to Sunday. Organized by designer Leah Ball and photographer Chelsea Ross of Feminist as Fuck, and Kristen Kaza of No Small Plans Productions and Slo 'Mo Party, Shop Sensual will be offering sexy creations by more than a dozen local artists and designers— Leah Ball herself, Noelia Towers, Claire Arctander, Silk Shaman, Morgan Reed Jewelry, Gnat Glitter Kink, Mano Y Metal by Desiree Guzman, Remix by Giselle Wasfie, Humboldt House, Cities in Dust, Emma Alamo, and Solid Air by Taylor Mauch. The event will also feature intimate performances by Darling Shear and Kiara Lanier in addition to three pleasure-centered workshops thorughout the weekend: "Unlocking the Erotic Mind" with sexologist Rena McDaniel of Intraspectrum Counseling, "Slow Jams Yoga" with Lauren Ash of Black Girl In Om, and Erotic Drawing I with Leah Ball.

I interviewed Ball, Kaza, and Ross—they responded collectively by e-mail. Read their responses below and check out a few items that you can find at Shop Sensual in my Chicago Reader post here.
