Sir & Madame debuted PF Flyers new collection at their Hyde Park store Friday and kicked off the weekend in style. DJ Jay Illa spun some Kanye West and Heineken had beer on hand while attendees mingled with Stack Aly and Ouigi of the Brooklyn Circus. We were there as well, always supporting our favorite Chicago power couple – Autumn and Brian Merritt. Check out photos from the event below, Ouigi Theodore talking about PF Flyers, and shop Sir & Madame here.
Our summer playlist keeps growing. Here’s the latest from Chicago’s very own Mano: a remix of Beyonce’s smooth classic “Party.” Grab a drink and a dude (or a lady) and jam to this new song. We like it. Do you?
The mixtape that was supposed to drop last Christmas, is here as we wake up on Thanksgiving. I’m thankful for Lupe’s return to classic Lupe. Download link below. I. Fight. Evil.

Chicagoans have been incredibly lucky this year. Temperatures in September and October have held steady near the 60 degree mark daily, giving everyone the opportunity to witness the most colorful (and arguably most beautiful) season of the year- fall. Below are photos from a shoot with a friend of mine, Maggie Lubczynski, as well as street shots from Lincoln Park and the Chicago Botanic Garden.
Braving the rain of last Sunday morning, my friend Adam and I arrived at the Randolph Market Festival eager to add vintage peices to our personal treasure collections. Showcasing unique necklackes, antique home goods and handbags dating back to the early 1900s, the Randolph Street Market Festival could easily be renamed “Any Stylish Chicagoan’s Goldmine.”
On the side of a brick wall supporting the underpass around Milwaukee and Leavitt, there is a spray-painted dinosaur on a cotton-candy pink and light plum purple background with the words “FIND ART” scrawled beneath it. Interpreting these words as a challenge, we set out to uncover art on the streets of Chicago. (MaB)

Fashion magazines are already buzzing about the must-have looks for fall, but I’m not willing to give up the fact that there is still over a month of summer left, and there is no better place to whip out the season’s hottest trends than for my favorite weekend of summertime Chi- Lollapalooza.
