Chicago Style Outlier | Creative Cutout

Sep 08, 2012 1 Comment by

This style outlier was captured in the loop a few weeks back. I liked the neutral tones in the outfit and the combination of ankle boots and asymmetric cutout dress.

On another note, I realize that The STYLE OUTLIER is getting less love these days as I am focused on building my DIY fashion blog, HIGH on DIY. If you are looking for a creative fix for the weekend, check it out! There are fun and easy DIYs for necklaces, bracelets and many more.

I am so excited to announce my new blog HIGH on DIY.  I have been working on the concept, set-up and design for a while now and it’s finally launched! HIGH on DIY is a DIY fashion blog that will feature fun and easy DIYs to recreate fashion’s latest trends so you can reveal your unique personal style when rocking those DIYs. I have always loved creating so I am super excited to have a new place to share them with you. Read more about HIGH on DIY and why I created it here. For the first post on HIGH on DIY, I went with a favorite piece of accessory I saw during New York Fashion Week in February. I have wanted to recreate it since then. It’s the Rodarte (Fall 2012 collection) inspired shooting star hair-clip. You can see me wearing the final DIY in the picture above. Head over to HIGH on DIY to see the full post!

Chicago Street Style | Piled Prints II

Aug 13, 2012 No Comments by

These street style looks were captured during the Lollapalooza weekend. I did not get to shoot at the actual event but I met these girls as they were heading to Grant Park for the concerts & I was on my way home from downtown. I loved the crazy prints in their outfits mixed with lace, leather, denim and fun jewelry. It reminded me of two girls I had photographed last fall

Chicago Street Style | Studs, Spikes, & Stripes

This style outlier was captured on a beautiful afternoon in downtown Chicago. I was really drawn to her love of all things studs and spikes — from her handbag to her spike bracelets. She wanted to take off the headscarf before taking the picture but I felt that the touch of detail with the headwear really added to the overall look. So she kept it and I love how the shot turned out. Headscarves have made a major comeback on the runway and it is a very fun accessory for the summer. If you want to give this headscarf look a try, checkout these or these photos that show all the different ways you can style it.
