RAW Chicago: Kaleidoscope


It's that time of year!  Let the RAW artist showcases commence!  
Last week I attended my first RAW event of the season at Double Door

 For those of you who are not familiar with RAW and are thinking "that sounds pretty darn cool", it is an amazing artistic showcase unlike anything you have ever seen.  Each event features a range of local-artists in the mediums of film, hair and makeup, fashion, visual arts, performing arts, and photography.  Each showcase is unique, featuring different artists every time!

Check out these photos of some of my favorite pieces/performances from the Kaleidoscope showcase!

The next RAW artist showcase will be "Elevate", on July 11th at Double Door.  See you there!

Dose Market


On Sunday Karley and I went to our first ever Dose Market here in Chicago.  I have been wanting to check out this "fancy flea market" since I moved here last year!  Dose takes place once a month, all year long, in the River East Art Center.  This month the market was themed around Valentine's Day with festive food vendors, homemade valentines, and even a traveling photo booth!  One of my favorite parts of Dose was these AH-MAZING cupcakes from Chicago Cupcake!  I wanted to take every single one home with me!  Of course, I couldn't help but snap a bunch of photos while at the market.  
Adore them all bellow! --------------->

I'm pretty much in LOVE with this crystal necklace that I spotted at the market by Shades of Grey!  *mental wish list* 

The original art work on display by Deborah Baker was so fun!  I adored her homemade valentines! 

My grandpa, a retired dentist, would be proud of me sporting these realistic, teeth earrings by Dallas Maynard Jewelry!  Another item to add to my growing Dose wish list.

 The phenomenal, pink velvet cupcake that I still dream about!  Seriously.  It was amazing you guys!

It was a great day for "Dose-ing"!  I wore this cozy, patterned sweater dress by snap and paired it with my favorite pair of tights by Simply Vera Wang.  I finished off my boho chic look with a pair of Guess ankle boots and a braided, statement necklace, which was a fantastic, thrifting find!  Another great thrifted item is my vintage, leather Coach purse, my new favorite bag.  
The next Dose Market is March 10th, my birthday weekend, so I am definitely looking forward to that!  I am also looking forward to seeing Mumford and Sons in concert this weekend in New Jersey! Eeeeeek!  Yeah....I just squealed a little.  Keep an eye out here for my next blog post featuring photos from the concert!

Much love <3
