20 Looks to Get You in a Festive Mood for Lollapalooza

Ok, so there are really only 19 looks, but it's close enough :) So if you haven't heard Lollapalooza 2015 is this weekend! Get inspired by these incredible babes from festivals past.


Lion Babe x Azeeza at Lollapalooza

Radical Music Alert. Lion Babe is a New York duo fronted by Jillian Hervey  with guitarist/keyboardist/co-writer Lucas Goodman. They are not to be missed when they perform at Lollapalooza this weekend. Women's Wear Daily reports that they'll be wearing custom Azeeza on stage. Below is the sketch of Jillian's costume. Designer Azeeza Khan says “She really felt the cape represented the band. It has so much movement and volume, and everything Jillian does involves movement and volume — hello to her amazing hair,” Cannot wait to see it in person this weekend!

Catch Lion Babe's set at Lollapalooza on Sunday Aug. 2nd at 12:50 - 1:30 PM at the Pepsi stage.


Clicquot Mail Dinner at the Chicago Athletic Association

Veuve Clicquot recently invited me and a bunch of rad people to Cindy's on the roof top of the Chicago Athletic Association for a fabulous summer dinner. As I was making my way up to the party (read stalking the doorway for fabulous people) I ran into Jennifer Worman of the delighful blog Red Soles Red Wine and founder of  T+J Designs which has been blowing up the spot lately with new clothing options and rad t-shirts. Jen looks like a million bucks here in this winner of an Akira Dress. 

It's hard to beleive, but Amelia Eaton of the CHICago Life Blog had a baby about 3 months ago. WOWZA. She's killing it in this chic white ensemble and nude heels.

It's always a pleasure to see Daniel Kelleghan. A+ Photographer and now clothing designer! He's sporting one of the EXTREMELY limited edition shirts he made with Stock Mfg.  If anyone's listening over at Stock, definitely release these in a larger run! I want to buy one for my hubby.

Veuve Clicquot, I've got to hand it to you. You guys throw a hell of a party. The champagne was flowing (no surprise there), the food was delicious,  and the views were spectacular. My tablemates were weren't too shabby either :) Kelly Larkin of Kelly in the City Jess Keys of The Golden Girl Blog and Arin Agase of Heart of Chic kept things poppin'.

The place cards were adorable party crackers, which we popped at the end of the night one after another in order to get the shot below...

I love me some Paul Octavious. One of the most inventive photographers I've ever gotten the chance to meet. If you don't already, follow him here on Instagram. Here I am on the Vueve Clicquot motor bike with an incredibly important delivery.

Cheers to a great party Veuve Clicquot! Thanks for having me.

Fancy Overalls

I ran into Juliet Angus of the Bravo reality show Ladies of London looking sexy in this Self Portrait ruffled denim and lace jumpsuit on Michigan Avenue.

At first I  thought the jump suit was two different pieces, but in fact it's a one-stop-shop radical outfit. Follow along with Juliet on Instagram as she embarks on the second season of Ladies of London. Yep, she confirmed it!

Darling Jena Gambaccini of ChiCityFashion is going next level with these Nina Ricci lace overalls and M2MALLETIER bag.

Listen to he latest episode of Jena's excellent podcast called Fashion Friends where she talks with Michael Corrigan about the ESPY's red carpet, Men's Fashion Week in New York and Eva Chen's big move to Instagram


The Most Stylish People at Pitchfork Music Festival 2015

The sun has set on another Pitchfork Music Festival and a couple of things are clear. The 90's are back in full force, with Sleater Kinney headlining on Saturday and enough people in doc martens to outfit a small army. And despite the rain and mud people brough their sartorial A-Game. So without further ado I give you the most stylish folks from Union Park this weekend.

This hat is everything.

One of the highlights of the fest for me was seeing my darling friend Isa Giallorenzo, founder of the street style blog Chicago Looks positively glowing. This is one of my favorite images I've ever taken of her (there have been many, here and here)

Alison Fraker is bringing is all bright and shiny between her metallic birkenstocks and mirror shades.

This look is quintessential Riot Girl get-up from the 90s with some modern updates of course. The metallic docs are squarely from the here and now.

Darling Kristen Kaza of No Small Plans Productions always kills the style game. Love the fan!

Ratko Radojcic photographer for Chicago Magazine brings true meaning to the phrase "they would look amazing even in sack cloth".

Alicia Gutierrez deserves a goddamn award for wearing heels to this festival. Conditions were not ideal, but once a lady always a lady, especially when it comes to footwear.

These ladies! They're sisters and are wearing enough swag to fill an issue of teen vouge.

There's no more appropriate time to bust out the LP purse than a music festival.

Michael Cera earring alert!

Love Letesha Renee's whole vibe, from the visor to the braids to the romper that she made herself. Nicely done. Check out more of her collection at EugeneTaylorBrand.com

Good times this weekend, till next year Pitchfork!
