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.
STYLE IS...ELIZABETH CRONIN OF ASRAI GARDEN
WHO ARE YOU?
MY NAME IS ELIZABETH CRONIN. I AM A BORN & RAISED CHICAGO GIRL AND I'VE OWNED A SHOP HERE SINCE 1999 CALLED ASRAI GARDEN.
WHAT INSPIRES YOUR STYLE?
I LOVE ANYTHING BLACK AND DRAPING. I'M OBSESSED WITH TEXTURE AND I LIKE TO WEAR AS MANY LAYERS AS POSSIBLE. I LIKE TO THINK I AM PULLING OFF 'SPORTY WITCH'...NOT SURE IF THAT IS TRUE.
WHAT DO YOU LOOK FOR FROM SIR & MADAME?
I LOVE SIR & MADAME FOR MY MOST DAILY WEARABLE BASICS (ALL BLACK OF COURSE). 3 OF MY MOST FAVORITE PIECES CAME FROM YOU AND THEY ARE IN HEAVY ROTATION. I MISS HAVING YOUR NORTHSIDE LOCATION ON MY DAILY DRIVE TO AND FROM THE FLOWER MARKET.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE CHICAGO SHOPPING DESTINATIONS?
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY READING AND/OR LISTENING TO?
I AM CURRENTLY RE-READING 'NATIVE SON' AND JUST STARTED 'THE GOLDFINCH'. I CAN NOT STOP LISTENING TO FRANK OCEAN'S 'BLOND'. EVERYDAY SINCE DAY ONE...IT'S NOT GETTING OLD, I CAN'T STOP. ALSO, SOLANGE'S 'A SEAT AT THE TABLE', A TRIBE CALLED QUEST'S 'WE GOT IT FROM HERE...THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE', ANDY STOTT'S 'LUXURY PROBLEMS', ANITA BAKER, AND ALWAYS ALWAYS FLEETWOOD MAC.
FAVORITE CHICAGO RESTAURANT, BAR, OR LOUNGE?
REALLY I JUST WANT TO EAT THE SHELLFISH TOWER AT MAUDS EVERY NIGHT! I ALSO LOVE GIANT FOR THE BEST MEAL AND ESTEREO FOR THEIR COCKTAILS.
WHAT WERE YOU WEARING 10 YEARS AGO?
WAS THAT THE SUMMER I DITCHED ALL BLACK AND WENT NEUTRAL/TROPICAL SAFARI? IT MIGHT'VE BEEN.
IN 3 WORDS OR LESS...STYLE IS?
