A fun Chicago Day

Friday was awesome, my friend Jen http://rettigulous.tumblr.com/ came in from LA to stay with me so we decided to visit the old Chicago Library that is now the  Chicago Cultural Center and is a public area and has these amazing stained glass windows and domes. 
Hat: Vintage, for sale at my ETSY shop
Coat: Vintage wool coat by Sycamore made exclusively for Marshall Field & Company of Chicago,  for sale at my ETSY shop
Boots:  Coach, bought at ANEW consignment shop in Geneva, IL for $99. 
Top:  Rhuel
Leggings:  Forever 21 for $9
Assorted necklaces that are vintage and from Forever 21

Then we stopped by the Chicago Art Institute....for FREE!

Yes....my gloves are tucked into my pants.

Sterling silver Tiffany & Co. anyone?

  
My friend Jen! Shes a hoot!
