• Hot/Cool Weather


    We still have about three more weeks of Summer, but it sure is feeling fallish out. We just got these geometric pattern wrap tops. I bet it would make my mom blush. It reminds me of the outfits I’d see her wearing in photos from when I was a new born in the early 80s, but done better. #70sinspired just like the new chair we have for loved ones to plant themselves in the store while you shop. We replaced the old couch to make room to stock more gifts for fall. So far most boyfriends seem to think the chair is art and wonder around aimlessly.


    You can tell fall is right around the corner because it’s going to be a hot one again next week. Chicago fall weather is like a roller coaster, up and down. That’s why layers are so important. Now’s a good time to stock up on the bottom layer and shop the Summer sale.

    Here’s an outfit that some people have a hard time visualizing on the rack. Hanging there, it kinda looks like a jumper, or maybe some overalls.


    Behold! it’s a dress and a pretty nifty one at that. Complete with silver hardware. Tough, but cute.



    We’ve also got some unique leather/silver chokers if you are ready to bring back the 90s with us. The cool thing about chokers is you can wear them for the rest of Summer, Fall and through the Winter and they will still be seen above that big baggy coat you’re going to inevitably end up in.

    Remember, enjoy Summer & Fall as much as you can, there’s plenty of great days left!

    Radiant Human Aura Photography This WEEKEND!


    RSVP for Timeslots

    Sat Aug 20th

    Sun Aug 21th

    I can’t wait to get my aura photographed!

    In the early 80s, in San Francisco, Dr. Guy Coggins started experimenting with photography & energy to see if he could capture more than meets the eye on film. What he came up with is known as aura photography. As with many fascinating ideas, the practice kind of faded into obscurity. Lucky Christina Lonsdale, a visual artists from Portland Oregon is bringing it back. She acquired one of the original cameras from Dr. Coggins himself and is taking it on the road along with her geodesic dome portrait studio.


    Christina is making a stop in Chicago, one day only at our shop August 20th and 21st. It takes some time and setup to photograph your aura and explain the color meanings. Because of this it’s time-slot based. Reserve your time and learn more on her website radianthuman.com. She’s only able to take a limited number of photos during her visit to Chicago and time slots go fast, try to register ASAP.

    On another mystic note , The Wild Unknown has printed the last batch of their beloved & beautiful tarot card deck.

    Dress to Impress (Ali Golden & more on sale)

    Ali Golden, Gat Rimon, Two Arrows

    Ali Golden, Gat Rimon, Two Arrows just a few of the dresses that went on sale today.

    “I like being a woman, even in a man’s world. After all, men can’t wear dresses, but we can wear the pants.” -Whitney Houston

    It may not be as much a man’s world anymore, but it’s still true (love you/miss you Whitney!). How could you not love the perfect dress? It’s great to go from feeling blah to feeling beautiful by slipping on a single piece from your closet. Simplicity at it’s finest.

    The weather is finally getting out of the 90s. I know a lot of you have told me you love it when it’s unbearably hot… but me, I like it when I can wear something nice and feel comfortable, there’s just more options.

    Big Star Wicker Park

    There are two nice patios directly adjacent to the shop. There’s Big Star, with it’s fancy tacos & killer margaritas (just drink one and try to not have a good time). My favorites are the piscado, alhambra & walking taco. The queso is also something to write home about. It’s a huge patio and definitely a place to be seen, but there’s often a wait to get a spot.

    I like things a bit more chill. Urbanbelly’s patio usually doesn’t have a wait and is the perfect place to spend a lovely Summer afternoon. It’s also a great choice if your saving up for the perfect dress, they have happy hour everyday from 4 to 6pm with $5 pitchers. When it starts to get cooler, the ramen is delicious, get the Jr. Ramen, it’s under $8 and sure to fill you up. I know it sounds weird but you have to try their PB&J ice-cream because… yes.


    ~ Enjoy Summer! xo
