A BIg Splash!



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...
