Fate made me go into the Starbucks on Chicago and Franklin (and the need for a holiday cup filled with gingerbread latte).
I love this Starbucks because it is always filled with fashionable gallery workers and Merchandise Mart employees. I ease dropped on a discussion about SOFA (apparently disappointing) and Carl (as in Carl Hammer). While I strained my ear for any design gossip, I noticed Miss El-Yes waiting for her coffee. What a dress!
Later that evening, I went to the Junior League of Chicago Gazebo holiday market. I was blown away to discover Miss El-Yes's dress hanging on a sales rack at the Archer Townsend booth. What a small world!
Archer Townsend is a new contemporary women's line that has fantastic pieces (like this dress). I love this simple dress paired with chunky grey boots. A perfect look as we head into the chill of Fall and Winter.
