Right now, we’ve gotta focus on fashion week!  Day 1 Attending the Dapper ...

When Spring Just Hasn’t Sprung Yet | Spring Style

By Dannie Levine We all know how much I love winter. I’ve been terrible at keeping it a secret and it’s definitely something that affects my life decisions in big ways (post on that coming soon). But when the calendar says it’s March, I’m definitely ready for the weather to turn and to stop having to wear a coat everywhere – even if my winter coat this year is pretty darn cute. It’s the time of year when ...

Light Fall Jacket and Floral Embroidery

When I initially started writing this, I wanted to have you close your eyes and imagine a scenario. And then I remembered that this is the internet and if you close your eyes, you can’t read my post! Silly me. So let’s go with an eyes-open imagination exercise instead. It’s a crisp fall day. Chilly — but not too chilly — and you’re meandering down your favorite nature-lined path. The leaves are turning, soft sunlight is trickling ...

Spring Style: Bow Heels

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I define my style as. While I still have a hard time articulating that, I’ll tell you what I have learned: the thing I am most proud of is my shoe collection. It is small but mighty, filled with shoes that make people go “whoa, nice shoes!” or “so what’s the story with your shoes?” I love it when people talk to me about my shoes so I make sure they have ...

Way Up High with 360 Chicago

This past Tuesday, I was lucky enough to be able to attend a preview of 360 Chicago’s new Sunset Series (formerly the John Hancock Observatory). It was a wonderful evening filled with amazing people, stunning views, great drinks, and some TILT!-ilating excitement! First we got to explore the new exhibition before going up to the observation area. This exhibit talks about Chicago’s amazingly rich history by focusing on all of its ...

Rise Up – LGBT Fashion with high waist slacks

Sharing LGBT Fashion is a passion of mine. Part of my mission is to remind everyone that LGBT fashion doesn’t have a look. The clothes I wear don’t define my sexual identity.

So the Fashionably Femme team is here sharing fashion and breaking those ...
