Chicago, IL

Chicago is a city I've visited many times because thats where my sister lives, but this time I got to do a bit more thrifting. I took my friend because she'd never been to the city and we visited buck town and went to the field museum. We even managed to fit in a milwaukee trip which I'll have a post about soon.
On the way to chicago we stopped in Gary, Indiana of all places to check out a couple thrift stores. All of them were closed except one but I found the most amazing pair of brown shoes that currently I can't bare to part with.

In chicago I found a couple tops and a blazer. Along with a really fun striped sweater. Took all of the outfit photos in the city, and woke up at sunrise to get photos of the adorable 1960s cape my friend snagged.

The sweater and two tops are up for sale on etsy.

I move in a couple weeks! So much to do and no time to do it because I've been city hopping for a month. I've got a sale running in the shop because I'm trying to get rid of as much as I can. I'm excited to experience a new area though, I need a bit of a change, and a transition before I just turn into a vagabond for real.
Oh, and I saw Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros last night. It was truly incredible.
