In case you didn't know, I create the photo collages for Not Quite Glam using Polyvore (which is..you know... only the best thing since sliced bread!) For the next four (4) days Polyvore is having a "Wear I Live" contest for all of us funky Chi-town fashionistas!
I was inspired by the CTA (Chicago Transit Authority)...mostly because I don't own a car and so if I want to get anywhere I either have to hoof it or get on the El (train). For my set I was going for a look I'll call commuter chic; something well pulled together yet effortless. I'm not gonna lie, usually I wear Uggs or TOMS when commuting, but I've always admired women brave enough to step on on the platform or (gasp) run after a bus in 4 inch heels; so I decided to incorporate a pair of hot pink platform wedges from Aldo. In order to keep the otherwise black-and-white look from being too drab (as if the shoes weren't enough) I added this ombre/animal print top from Top Shop.
I would LOVE LOVE LOVE and TOTALLY APPRECIATE you all clicking here and liking my set, and if you also want to enter, just click here!
According to the contest guidelines,all you have to do is create a set showcasing your best Chicago look and only new sets are allowed. Easy right? Now I have no idea what the "prize" for the winning set will be, but here's to the winner receiving all, or at least one of, the items in their set for free ($365 Oliver Peoples sunglasses? YES PLEASE!!)
Stay tuned for my Easter look...in the mean time have a Happy Good Friday and Happy creating!!
