I work as the Merchandise Supervisor for nine Chicago area Salvation Army Thrift Stores - and we started a thrifting blog! You should follow it! Currently it’s on Wordpress, but maybe in the future it will also be on Tumblr!
In the meantime check it out for cool vintage and current style finds, contests for in-store discounts, and DIY/repurposing tutorials! It’s gonna be so fun!
This is Lawrence. Lawrence probably has every reason to be snobby. Handsome, sophisticated, extremely well dressed and to top it off he is the Global Director for Presentation for Tory Burch. But he was refreshingly kind and gracious with me as I approached him in my booth at The Vintage Bazaar. He patiently posed as I took a number of pictures of him, the whole time giving an endearingly warm smile. He also bought a vintage brown Pyrex serving dish with gold farm animals on it from me. He gave ME money after all that pestering I did. I don’t think I’ll ever forget this fella.
For the record, he’s carry a Prada bag, wearing Charles Philip Shanghai shoes and his shirt and shorts we purchased on a recent business trip to Tokyo. Did I mention he was leaving for Brazil the next day?? Come on!
These Old Navy shorts are hot in Chicago right now!
Anna (Jane) from See Jane features them on her blog. And fellow Chicagoian, Laura was spotted in them at the Vintage Bazaar yesterday at the Aragon Ballroom. Looks like these girls know a good thing when they spot it. (see what I did there? you like?)
Juli was seen on Kedzie Blvd in Logan Square on her way home from her shift at Longman and Eagle. A girl with a bike is the ultimate. She can really pull off those American Apparel tap shorts, A challenge I cannot take!
I met these young high schoolers, Katrina and Kimberly awhile back down in the loop. So glad to see high schoolers doing something different and not being afraid to be themselves. I WANT THOSE FLORAL BOOTS.
I ran into Najee on State St. a few weeks ago. Both being Columbia College Chicago Alum we were enjoying walking around the loop on a day off, it was our campus after all. I liked his vintage ensemble, and he was kind enough to let me capture it. This cool dude is also the Manager at the Ukrainian Village boutique Sir and Madame. I LOVE that sweater!
