Classic Button-Up

Another fun collaboration with RedHedCreativeStudio project #ChiChiInTheCity #ChicagoStreetStyle. We shot this entire look at the Dusable bridge, the bridge carries Michigan Avenue across the main stem of the Chicago River in downtown Chicago, Illinois. Unfortunately for us it was also Taste of Chicago weekend so you can imagine how crowded and busy downtown was. We still managed to get some good wide range shot without anyone in the background.

Portrait PhotographyMy look for the day was this lightweight semi fitted short sleeve button down shirt, perfect for sunny days or warm nights. It goes perfectly with jeans or a fitted skirt. Portrait PhotographyMy button up turned into a sleevless shirt, thanks to my handy dandy scissors.

Cut out sleeves, stitch up your hem. Attach sleeves on to both sides as a waist belt.

Never underestimate the power of a button down. Now double that statement when it comes to a classic stripe button down shirt. Button down shirt is one of the most versatile garments a woman could own, from it’s ability to challenge the vibe you are trying to set to overall changing your whole look.

Graphic Essential Tee

Your choice in graphic tee can say a lot about you. Perhaps you’re a vintage-Ramones-tee kind of girl or a high-fashion animal lover à la Kenzo or Givenchy type.

Casual Cute

Through out this spring and summer I have the pleasure of collaborating with RedHeadCreativeStudio in a new project “Style in Chicago” featuring the best of my personal style captured around the city of chicago. So expect some cool looks all through this ss16 from me in some of chicago famous locations. This past weekend I had my first shoot and of course we shot this look  around Millennium Park second most popular tourist attraction in Chicago. I decided to go for a casual and playful look; most often what comes to mind are jeans or khakis, paired with any top, including a T-shirt, as long as it looks polished.
