Put Your Best Face Forward

70° in April might as well be 90° in April. Smiles, al fresco dining, and lots of skin showing. It goes without saying (but I'll say it) that mastering the fundamentals of good health is the best way to improve your skin health, but our current apothecary selection will take your exterior to the next level.

One of my favorite products that we carry to help your skin shine is Scratch Goods' Body Scrub. One of our best sellers is the Lavender Mint Scrub (👇🏾) also known as a win/win for the therapeutic qualities of the ingredients.

 A food grade, moisturizing exfoliant, you'll never have to go back to the harsh scrub named after an apricot.

Happy April!

The weather may finally be turning a tide with more sunny days than rainy ones on the horizon, but layering is still paramount. Stop by the store and we’ll show you how to style our latest arrivals with your current closet favorites.

Earlier this week we had our monthly First Tuesday Happy Hour @ Foxbar at Soho Chicago. With good food, good friends, and good drink, it's always right on time. Be sure to mark your calendars for the next one (5/2). Check the photo recap below courtesy of DJ Jay Illa.

Spring Tings Are Happening...

Here in Chicago, this Spring-like weather can't seem to decide whether it wants to stay or not. Regardless of the temps, we all know that if you stay ready you don't have to get ready.

Fortunately we have your bases covered with a new Bubblegum Pink selection to satisfy your colorful needs and warm weather thoughts.

Our friend Chelsey debuted the latest colorway in our favorite Magnolia Jacket at the Saint Heron Live Art Show that featured Braid Styles by Shani Crowe. We don't usually do too much color, but this bubble gum piece is a keeper. Also available in black, you can purchase here.

CHI CITY FASHION LOVES SIR & MADAME...

RECENTLY WE SAT DOWN (AT OUR COMPUTERS) FOR AN INTERVIEW WITH JENA OF CHI CITY FASHION. TAKE A GANDER BELOW AS WE TALK ABOUT OUR LOVE FOR CHICAGO AND MORE...

 

Why Chicago?

This is where we are from, Chicago is our home. This is the city that Brian and I were both raised in and the city that we want to build up creatively. After graduating from college in DC I knew 2 things — I wanted to contribute to the creative community and continue my relationship with Brian, all in Chicago.

Over the past 10 years we have witnessed so much growth within the art, fashion and music communities…it truly is amazing. Chicago is a city that for so long was overlooked with limited resources in the fashion & retail industries, so to be instrumental in that shift is important to us. We also have an amazing network here that allows us to fully support one another and put in motion meaningful collaborations.

STYLIN' ON 'EM.

A few weeks ago we collaborated with a few other artists to create some Spring looks that would invoke the (hopefully) forthcoming Spring weather. Working with them was an absolute blast; now we just need the weather to get on board! Check us out below and click on the pictures for more details!
