by Rachel Yeomans | January 31st, 2013

Now that I find myself back in the Windy City (and it’s welcoming me back with a windy – and frigid – vengeance I must say), I now have the need for the necessary “unbreakable” umbrella. Do they exist? My opinion is, if you live in Chicago and use the same umbrella for an entire… Read more…

by Anne Dreshfield | January 30th, 2013

As the weather slowly begins to warm up, I find myself reaching time and time again for the brighter colors in my closet: the pinks, whites, corals, and blues that hint that spring is on its way. This week, I focused on creating a look that echoed the upcoming changing of seasons, with pieces that… Read more…

Today’s Coveted Working Look: Blythe Blouse

by Anne Dreshfield | January 29th, 2013

There are certain things that I’m not allowed to even try on in stores because I already own enough of that trend. Stripes? As much as it pains me to do so, I try to avoid even looking at them because I adore anything with a stripe on it. Color-blocking? Love the preppy-cool vibe, but… Read more…

Toast to Tuesday: Stay Warm and Stay Dry

by Rachel Yeomans | January 29th, 2013

It’s raining out there! Well at times it’s snowing and then switches to rain. Either way, it’s best to layer and cover up! This week’s selected outfit from TheWorkingWardrobe Polyvore Group shows how to do just that. I love the accents of leopard. Many of us wear all black (guilty), so I appreciate the effort… Read more…

Today’s Coveted Working Look: NU Tie-Collar Tunic

I adore the pattern and colors of this tie-collar tunic from NU. It’s muted but makes as much of a statement as something really bright would (I’d be much more willing to wear a muted statement piece versus a loud one). Wear it loose or belted, it will look great no matter what. Obviously you… Read more…
