Ah, back in the windy city absorbing the grey skies, endless stretch of beautiful people, and slightly chilled air. Moving into a new apartment has been taking far longer than I expected (I don't know why I thought this would be an easy/quick job), but that doesn't mean spending (literally) the entire day at Ikea has necessarily been a chore (their cinnamon rolls are heavenly!). Now that I'm sort of a bit more settled in I'll be posting a few home diy projects, if you all would be interested in seeing a bit of that (if not please let me know in the comments! Or a strongly worded email, whatever gets you voicing you opinion on the matter!) as well as *maybe* a recipe or two if I ever decide to stop living off of granola bars and mac&cheese. (Don't worry, many fashion & social action posts are still to come, as well!)
Speaking of social action and fashion, I was so kindly invited by the DePaul University United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) Chapter to co-host its 3rd annual For The Sake of Fashion charity runway show! The show is open to the public (only a $10 suggested donation) and will feature a range of local and international socially-responsible brands, with 100% of the proceeds will be going toward UNICEF-DePaul! The runway show will take place Sunday, October 12th at 6:00pm at the Cortelyou Commons on 2324 N Fremont Street in Chicago, IL. There is also an opportunity at the end of the show to purchase some of the featured clothing donated by designers at a fraction of the designer price! So cool, right!?

One month should be more than enough time to buy those flights, right? (;
