To the Market

Well, it's Fall. Fuck. If I have to freeze my ass off and can't prance around Chicago in short shorts anymore, I'm going to do so in comfy sweaters like this one. I scooped it up at our neighborhood garage sale last week, from an adorable vintage seller named Niki. The plan was to give it to my husband, but once I put it on there was no way he was getting his giant hands on it. I mean, it's a sweater, shaped like a jacket. With gold buttons. The person who knit it 50 years ago must have had me in mind. 

We snapped the above photos before heading to Pilsen to celebrate the opening of Market Supply Co, an awesome vintage general store with a twist conceived by my dears Merl, Karyn, and Mike (yeah, they're sister wives). I knew I'd be impressed with their new storefront, but holy shit. This vintage store/barber shop/jewelry studio is a dream come true for anyone with good taste. Men and women's clothes, shoes, and accessories from decades past adorn the industrial fixtures and rustic wooden accent walls, while Merl's one of a kind pieces dress up the displays and expertly modernize the vintage wears. She'll even make a custom piece for you or your special lady, just ask! It's a wonderfully well-curated place you should definitely check out. And take me with you when you do.


  1. I can't believe it's fall either - wearing a knee socks and cardigan with my dress today. :) Love the bag and those shoes are amazing.

  2. You look great Lora! Hope to see you around soon!

  3. Love the striped pants and the top - that colour is lovely on you :) I can't believe it's autumn too, it just came on really quickly!
    Following you now :D

  4. Love the pants with the mustard shirt!

  5. Holy shit is exactly how I felt when I walked into the shop too! I could never dream up something as pretty as that place. I can't get over those pants and the mustard top and the sweater..basically everything. Styled beautifully and I love the photos
