If you take a look around the el platform these days, you'd think the latest fashions included: 1) Wrapping every possible body part with woolen garments with the exception of your eyes, 2) Wearing your boyfriend's oversized down parka and scary work boots while toting your pumps in an eco-friendly grocery store reusable bag and 3) Runny noses, bright red cheeks and smudged mascara. Hot!
Remind yourself that there is more to fashion than meets your blizzard-stung eyes at the Rock Steady Fashion show at Wicker Park's Moonshine on Thursday, Feb. 12. Admire spring-friendly designs from Bonnie & Clydes, Una Mae's, Process & Content and Guise Chic.
