Wake up and say hello to Summer in the Chi, lovies!

We’ve been cooking up some extra special treats for you all Spring and we’re happy to announce that one of them launches today — a super fun giveaway from The 900 Shops (our spot for Fogal tights and a Bloomie’s 5th floor fix.)

Here’s what a THC kinda babe wears to stay cool from Big Star to Pitchfork to Lollapalooza:

The best part about our look? Every single piece is begging to be worn so many ways. Behold, the magnificent six for THC-style Summer rockin’:

  1. Rebecca Minkoff’s bracelet sends the message you’re not to be messed with. Desirable.
  2. The Miu Miu shades? They’re sparkly red. Enough said. [Squelches squeal.]
  3. An AllSaints tee lives like lounge-wear, keeps you covered, easy and breezy.
  4. A Cambridge Satchel goes clean in white, remains streamlined for hands-free jamming.
  5. Fiorentini & Baker Boots equal awesome All. Year. Long.
  6. J Brand lavender jeans? What’s not to love. Game on, gamines.

Cast your vote for your favorite look online (we’ll take a #2 please) or stop by to do so on the second floor of The 900 Shops all month long. Oh, and if you share your favorite on social media (that would be a #2 again, ladies), you’ll earn even more entries.

Hello — go!

PS: We won’t hate you if you go for glossed & found, stay tres awesome or take a note from pink memo — we love it all. XX


Lolla Style

We took 2,000 photos at Lolla this year. Here, our favorite style snaps:

The cuteness of Tennis’ Alaina — she’s from the school of American Apparel. Dov, you must be delighted.

Taylor Momsen was lots of fun, scowl and all. She “did NOT get fired” from GG, y’all.

From her archive of vintage Heatherette, rockin’ blue is the manager of the Drums. Wish we had re-styled her band …

Lolla love, Chicago-style, via a molecular biologist and her band beau.

Tall drink in Forever21, head-to-toe. This is not something we condone but here, bien sur, mais ouis.

Nathalie is an aspiring actress from LA: excellent look on her.

We liked him and his Jay style.

The reigning mamacita of Grouplove, Hannah Hooper, and her four boys:

the fantastic brooder, Mr. Sean Gadd …

the awesomerocket of schlub, Ryan Rabin …

the cold quiet dreaminess of Mr.Christian Zucconi …
