My inner Claudia Kishi just died a little.

A lot, actually.

I have to have these. Seriously, my obsession with Chicago-based designer Gabrielle Zwick is now complete. Check out her shop here – the gorgeous photo is all hers, too!

Playing Dress Up

28 Sep

In a perfect world, I would wake up in the morning and choose what to wear in front of Carrie Bradshaw’s closet. You know, the one that Big has built from her in that uh-mazing apartment in the Sex and the City movie? The one that should have been filled with her delightfully unrealistic wardrobe? It looked a little something like this:

As it is, I’m a college student with federal loans, high rent prices and a love of animals. Manolos are not exactly on my monthly shopping list.

But I’m a firm believer in fashion as expression and art- I look and feel great when I’m wearing an outfit I adore. Why stay inside when you want to strut down the street? Call me vain, but a new pair of shoes makes me far happier than cable TV or buying my daily coffee at Intelligentsia.

And the perfect outfit? Brightens my day like no other. Case in point: engagement photos.

The remedy? Local designers. In this case, Elise Bergman selling out of the lovely Roslyn boutique for a gorgeous printed skirt. And the Anthropologie online sale, which should never be underestimated.

Where do you stand with fashion? Do you have a love/hate relationship, or was it love at first sight?
