I've noticed I haven't done a proper outfit post. Will definitely do one soon! Expect a lot of black, my autumn outfits have been very dark and monochromatic.
Lots of red in my monthly review of pictures. I wish that pertained to my wardrobe. I would have loved a new pair of red shoes (or a camel-colored winter cape!!!!) but no such luck.
first floor of the Sears Tower
jackfruit sprite from Joy Yee's
fried egg and beef over rice from Joy Yee's
A few pictures from space519, a new store at 900 N Michigan. If you are in the city and looking for Harper's Bazaar UK, Vogue UK or Love Magazine this is the place to go. They also had some great vintage watches which I'll probably be going back for.

Things to look forward to in the coming months:
- Thanksgiving. mmmmmmmmmm!!!!!
- Turning 21
- being able to buy presents for everyone this year
- NEW YEARS EVE
- Nashville weekend in January
- being a semester closer to graduating
I should really start my take-home test now. Ughhhh
Sadly, Chicago is constantly overlooked by the fashion community whose main focus is always London, Paris, New York, Milan, etc. I was actually surprised (but of course VERY HAPPY) when I found out that we were the second US city getting a Topshop. Regardless, I will always love this city. Chicago, hands down, has the best skyline. It never gets old.
a view from the one of the glass boxes in the skydeck (no I did not take this picture! I let my little sister, Babes, take my camera up haha if you know me you know that I would never go to the top of the Sears Tower. I'm such a baby when it comes to heights)
Another thing that never gets old are my Ray Bans and J Brand Houlihans.
Me and NIna
I'm wearing Ray Ban Wayfarers, a Forever21 top, J Brand Houlihans, boots from Target, and a thrifted purse.
Finally being able to wear boots also means having to stow away wedges and sandals until spring. Here are a few pairs that I really hate to see go...
black CR Luxe Wedges
Vera Wang Lavender - Celeste - Leather and Wood
80%20 - Molly - Classic Open Toe Hidden Wedges
Sooooo I don't know if I'm just light years behind the whole world when it comes to everything the internet has to offer (this was probably really cool on myspace, right?) but here is my first GIF post!
I wore this about two weeks ago and took some pictures with photobooth on my macbook.
Sadly, I'll have to retire this maxi dress until spring. Chicago winter...I am not looking forward to you at all (that is, unless I find a camel cape coat ,then I will happily deal with you with a smile on my face)!
