Wicked Wicker (Park)

Wednesday, April 27, 2011







Sweater - aerie  /  Top - Zara  /  Pants - American Eagle (seen here
Boots - kelly & katie  /  Sunglasses, Ring -  H&M  /  Bag - Coach

Last weekend, we were privileged to see the sun for about...oh, six hours before starting another week full of rain so we took the opportunity to get outside to explore one of our favorite 'hoods, Wicker Park. There is a wicked hip vibe in this area and every time we visit I feel like I'm walking around in an indie music video. Besides the fabulous people watching, (hellooo street style bloggers dream) the thrift and consignment stores are a goldmine. I scored a gorgeous silk dress for $12 (I'll show it to ya as soon as I won't get drenched or freeze to death) and if anyone is in the market for an amazing vintage olive green velvet couch, it's at the hip store behind me with the fun turquoise trim.
