Comfortable Booties for Fall with JBU by Jambu

By Dannie Levine It’s the most wonderful time of the year! You’re welcome for that ear worm on a Thursday morning. But really! I’m so thrilled! The first day of fall in Chicago behaved as such.

I’m celebrating the best season of the year with my faves, ...

Queer Summer Fashion, How to Dress for the Heat

By Dannie Levine Queer Summer Fashion | What is this apocalyptic hellscape called summer? Whoa, friends, this heat is bananas. I mean, obviously it’s summer so it’s hot but WOOF. I hate the heat. I literally wrote an entire post last November about how much I love winter. So I’m sure you can imagine how rough this weather is right now. I’m pretty much trying to hop from one air conditioned place to the next to keep ...

Closet Remix – Fourth of July Outfit Inspo

By Dannie Levine As I sat down to find some outfits to shoot for the Fourth of July, I realised it’s not something I even usually think about every year. See, my dogs are terrified of the noise of fireworks (as are many dogs) so I spend the day inside participating in exactly zero festivities and, instead, snuggling my dogs and reminding them they’re alright. If you, too, have a scardey pup, I highly recommend this article by ...

My Look for the Chicago Pride Parade 2018

By Dannie Levine   Happy Day After Pride, friends!  If you celebrated yesterday, I hope you had a truly wonderful time. Do yourself a favor and grab a large glass of water. Don’t worry, I’ll wait. This was my first year going to the Pride parade and I had a BLAST. We had a group of friends over beforehand for some pregaming and glitter makeuping. We had our truest gaggle and it was amazing. So definitely a great start to my ...

Femme Style as Politics and Attitude | My Outfit is My Statement

Is style political? Absolutely. When we get dressed in the morning, the clothing we put on is the armour we wear to face the world. It can (and should be!)  be a means of self expression, but it often also makes a political statement. When a certain famed talk show host tells the world that you shouldn’t wear a crop top if you have a tummy, any time a tummy owner wears one they are making a statement in direct contrast. Any time Alok ...
