Clare, 23, Lakeview
What’s your favorite fashion trend right now?
Colored denim! I loved brights and pastels over the spring & summer but I’m really looking forward to the darker colors this fall. A few good pairs of colored denim in your closet can transform a lot of boring outfits. They’re more versatile than standard blue jeans ~ they’re easy to dress up.
What’s your favorite outfit for a date night?
My date uniform: wedges, skinny jeans, a bright tank top, and statement necklace.
I love the messy ponytail!
Band on Repeat Right now
Zac Brown Band’s new CD “Uncaged”
Sloan McQuewick from Entourage (Played by Emmanuelle Chriqui )
Yes, I’m aware she’s a fictional character but the sole reason I watched Entourage religiously for 9 seasons was to see what she was wearing.
(us too! maj girl crush)
Do you have an accessory that you always wear?
My Michael Kors Tortoise Shell Bracelet Watch. The bracelet band gives it more of a feminine touch compared to traditional boyfriend watches.
Everday Make-Up Routine:
I love Benefit products (I’m a sucker for their marketing).
My Daily Routine: You Rebel Tinted Mostiourizer, Watts Up Illuminator, They’re Real Mascara, Erase Paste Concealer, and Hula Bronzer
Also…. Anyone who knows me is aware of my severe addiction to lip gloss
How do you jazz it up for a nighttime look:
I like to play up my eyes and wear a lot of purples, golds, and browns for eyeshadow. I also like to use M.A.C. Shell Cream Colour as a base.
What is your favorite Chicago restaurant and what is your favorite meal from there?
Thin crust cheese pizza from Pizanos!! So good
Accessorize for a night out:
I follow the less is more rule when it comes to accessories. I try to focus on one area whether it’s wearing a giant cocktail ring, statement necklace, or bold earrings.
Looking to the fall, what fall trend are you most excited about?
I think the “biker” look is going to be big this fall. I’ve seen some great biker boots and All Saints on Michigan Ave. has a biker jacket I’ve had my eye on for a while.
Staples for Fall:
Steve Madden Riding Boots- they go with everything!
Army Green Jacket- I bought it at TJ Maxx for only $20 bucks
Plum J Brand Skinnys
Favorite Places to Shop in Chicago
Zara- I’ve never regretted anything I’ve bought there. Whether it’s a Saturday night out or a Monday morning meeting you can find something perfect for every occasion.
Loehmanns- They closed the one downtown but it’s worth the trip to the burbs!
The Blue Jeans Bar on Halsted- My favorite place to buy denim! They have brands I didn’t know existed.
