THCIYH: Volume 24

This track sealed the deal for this disc:

Despite looking like it’s ancient, it is SO new.

And like all the rest of the THCIYHs, this dish is best served in a car with a full tank of gas beside someone you want to share the freedom with — all of that.

Bling Blang! Top Pop!

Hello, Holidaze!

If this isn’t the sparkliest time of year … we have to say we love everything about Chicago right now.

And we <3 to see fantastic happenings happening in our favorite neighborhood, the LP.

So, after eating a Franchise at CBA, where else will you be able to pick up the necessities for a bright and merry season around Armitage? Hint: the secret Topshop Pop Up!

Herewith, how to daze and delight the hunks and babes in your life this holiday after a pit stop at 1925 North Halsted this Thursday, 12/6, from 1pm-8pm and Friday and Saturday, 1pm-7pm:


First up, for a very sexy cocktail hour, grab this peplum — we <3 its sweet/naughty subversion!
Paired with this diamante clutch? So sleek. Both will keep your nights hot all season long …


And if this winter white sparkle stunner isn’t the perfect look for the hottest NYE party in Chicago … you’re doing it all wrong. We recommend rocking this to Entrepreneuer’s Eve at Adler Planetarium, there isn’t a better spot for boy-catching (but don’t tell anyone we told you that!).


Have you the perfect faux? A Haute Closet isn’t complete without one, and this one is really stunning, the perfect topper to cap off the year … and anytime it’s chilly in the windy city with jeans, tees, stilettos … !Gotta get a gift for your BFF … how about this funky little knapsack? Love it! It’s bar none the best on-trend bag we’ve seen at such a good price all season.


And … we really must have boys on the brain … because all we want to say is this bunny sweater is sure to be his favorite thing to see you in (besides fancy knickers of course, but perhaps he’ll like those better on the floor.)

Wow, are we going on Santa’s naught list this year, or what?

All of these pieces are exclusive to this very special happening, only here:


<3 you and topshop

– April

PS: Not so secret, THC likes working w/ Topshop and this post is sponsored by Sir Philip!

Addicted to lingerie … + having a good time!

So, we <3 lingerie. A lot.

And we <3 Dose Market and all of the Dosers. So we were STOKED to shop Orange Lingerie at Dose

… and include her custom service in this bachelorette party planning post we created for the gals over at beuweddings on the occasion of our best friend’s engagement.

Sending happy wishes and lots of sexiness your way!

<3 April

THCIYH: Vol 23

Things to be grateful for:

Not being known for being on reality TV … ☑

Everyone who helps make Dose Market a reality … ☑

Girlfriends … ☑

The occasion of a four-leaf clover … ☑

Forgiveness … ☑

The advent of a mentor …  ☑ << they come in all shapes and sizes.

Family Love + Teamwork … ☑

Opening up … ☑

The best gift ever …

So grateful for the perfect storm of ’3′ (albeit, could have done without CBS producing a false phrase strung out of disparate fragments to appear a statement never said). But no matter.
