Recently my amazingly talented friend Isa from Chicago Looks was asked to participate in the unveiling of the new design of The Chicago Reader. The Reader is one of my favorite newspaper/magazines here in the city. The music selection is my personal favorite, but they cover absolutely everything going on, along with great journalism and photography.
Basically, Isa was asked to provide photos from her blog of fun stylish people here in Chicago. Little did I know I would be included in this list. While at a concert that night I get a phone call telling me I have to be at a photo-shoot the next morning. I'm told to bring different outfit options, accessories but not to worry about shoes...I'm thinking, hmmm...why no shoes? Well then it comes out, I will be getting splashed with a big bucket of water. Fun!! is my first reaction! Why? Anything comedic is way more fun than trying to be perfect in a photo-shoot.
It was a total blast! The crew, photographer, art director, make up artist, they were all so warm and friendly. They totally made the atmosphere amazing! I mean, you may think of being splashed about 100 times over and over as a great time but it was pretty hilarious. And not to mention how nice they were for mentioning Dethrose Vintage! I feel like this is going to be great! Isa was awesome and took so many behind the scenes photos and even shot a little video. Don't forget to check out Chicago Looks for you daily read of Chicago street style.
SO here you all go! The making and the end result of The Chicago Readers new design cover-shoot.
And the cover...
Other than the color of my top, the rest is totally real. That is how much water I was hit with! Hahaha...
So here is Part 2 of this weeks shop date. 3 will be on the way tomorrow along with some great news for Dethrose Vintage and myself...but you'll just have to wait and see:)
Here is the update, the last dress isn't a part of the update, I need to know if I should keep it or not. Despite it being a super dreamy dress, it's a bit too big but the belt takes care of this issue. What are your thoughts?
I know what you're all thinking, finally Dethrose Vintage has a shop update! It has been way too long, 3 weeks to be exact, since my last shop update. But I had some time today and I will tomorrow as well. So without further delay....
Today was one of those days where you look out the window and the sun is shining so bright you think, "yay! no jacket today". Then you step outside to realize, dang, it's sunny but 40 degrees. Oh well, I pretended it was warm! I had a lot going on which meant I was going to be running around the entire city all day. So I decide to wear one of my newest picks from this weekend that my friend Jor helped me find. I would have missed it if hadn't have pointed it out! It's perfect for some lovely outdoor photos in my friends neighborhood. The pictures look warm but trust me I was freezing!
Luckily my friend was sweet enough to prepare a wonderful Green Lemonade to warm me up. Literally after drinking this I felt my blood circulating and I got an instant boost of energy! I love this raw detox I just started. Now, it's not the crazy raw detox you might all be familiar with, its only raw from the morning into mid afternoon, then its eating healthy and small portions until 8pm. I've only been doing this since Saturday and I feel so good and happy!! I can't wait to be bathing suit ready! Especially since my new one is too cute:)
Shoes: Dolce Vita (Penelopes)

I wish you could see the print of this dress better, it's little stars and flowers. Too cute!
