CANDY CANE STRIPED DUSTER

CANDY SHOP AND CANDY CANE STRIPED DUSTER I don’t have much of a sweet tooth but I do love this candy cane striped duster! So it was kinda perfect when we came across this cute candy shop while roaming around Andersonville.  Exploring the other Chicago neighborhoods is something the hubs and I love to do but haven’t had much time to lately.  I had heard that Andersonville has lots of cute little vintage shops and furniture stores so I was motivated to check it out.  It did not disappoint and was a fantastic way to spend a Saturday. The whole…

CROP TOP DRAWSTRING PANTS

STREET ART + CROP TOP WITH DRAWSTRING PANTS Hello friends!  Long time no post right?  I don’t know if I really need to go into all the reasons or excuses as to why I haven’t posted on the blog for a while since I’m hoping you all follow me on Instagram anyway.  A few things have happened career wise for me which has kept things pretty busy.  I moved to a new company, still doing corporate tax work, but with a new title as I was also promoted at my previous job **brushing off shoulder**.  So it’s been an adjustment…

THE KITCHEN AND 40K

THE KITCHEN AND CELEBRATING 40K ON INSTAGRAM Hey my cutie little popsicles! I hope you guys are having a great week. As you know, Tek and I are always frolicking around the city and it is about time I start talking about some of the great places we come across. Last week we had an amazing meal at The Kitchen in the River North area of the city. The name and ambiance of this community inspired restaurant fits the true philosophy of its yummy yummmmy cuisine. “Community Through Food” Yess! The most rewarding part of doing what I love as a fashion…

CURLY FAUX FUR COAT

CURLY FAUX FUR COAT, CORSET TOP, AND RIPPED BOYFRIEND JEANS I always feel the best in casual comfortable outfits but sometimes that can get pretty boring.  Enter this amazing curly faux fur coat.  Since Chicago weather around this time can be super fickle and you could experience winter and summer in one day, wearing a skimpy corset top with a curly faux fur coat on top makes total sense no?  I added some reflective touches to really make this outfit pop.  Aren’t these mirrored sunglasses so fun?  I got them from a local suburban boutique in Lemont, IL called Generation…

SELF PORTRAIT RED LACE

SELF PORTRAIT RED LACE AND THE GOLDEN GLOBES AT THE LANGHAM HOTEL Hi loves!  Shai here kicking off the new year with a new post and rocking some Self Portrait red lace for a very special event I hosted at one of my favorite hotels here in the city.  The Langham Hotel.  I mean it might just be the most instagrammable hotel in Chicago.  No joke.  If you haven’t instagrammed this lobby and you live in the city… I might kind of judge you.  Or maybe you are one of those “I don’t wanna do what everyone else is doing”…
