Weekend in Chicago

This weekend in Chicago was too short! I loved it, though. It was SO nice to see my friend, Emily Marie! I haven't visited her since she moved to Chicago (we used to live together in Edwardsville last year..). Here are some shots from my trip. We shared burritos and milkshakes, ate falafels, petted many a cat, saw so many thrift stores, I had my first American Apparel visit (wooooo- I want everything there!)

Emily is a wonderful and inspiring person. I always enjoy our conversations. I hope she doesn't get mad at me for doing this.. but here is a link to one of her adorable music videos! (Here is a link to her youtube channel)

 Here's a little of what I picked up thrifting..
OH MY GOODNESS. Let me just tell YOU that I lost my footing when I saw these beautiful celluloid earrings from the 1950's! I just HAD to purchase them! I also got this Carly Simon record for a dollar at Reckless Records with Emily. We really had a great time!
love, polly
