i had yet another pleasant evening with doug stephen this weekend, one of my very favorite people to hang out with.  he’s a staple of the chicago ad industry and and also plays in a band with my husband, so we have fun geeking out about production as well as my usual topic of music, music, music.  it’s chilly in chi-town already, so i was rocking my green leather bomber jacket.  yay for autumn.

in addition to just being awesome,  doug has a great sense of style and always looks interesting and put-together at the same time.  like this:

we also enjoy accessorizing like it’s our job.  for a little color in the midst of my olive and leopard i threw on this asian enamel necklace i recently purchased at vintage underground, a store in wicker park that i love to haunt.

doug collects vintage swatches and was wearing one from his giant collection.

as an added bonus, our buddy jonathan, copywriter extraordinaire, joined us at the pepper canister.  a good time was had by all.

outfit details: cream dress is jovovich-hawk; brown mary janes are frye; leopard print shirt is thrifted; olive leather jacket is bebe via ebay; olive tights are vera wang; doug’s glasses are thrifted; his sweater is by pringle; the tie is from barney’s (ooh, fancy); his jacket is by penguin; pants and shoes are both from the gap

song inspiration: “into the wilderness” by burning hearts.  i will never ever hear this finnish duo without thinking of doug.  we both love electronic indie-pop and he turned me onto them awhile back…and neither of us have looked back since.  enjoy.

    I’m totally jealous of your Jovovich-Hawk dress. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything from that line in person before. If you don’t mind my asking, where did you get it?

    Also – ad agency folks know how to party like it’s 1965 (which is to say, HARD). Amiright?

    Your hair looks awesome here and the color palette in your outfit is right up my alley. From here on out my mission is to find an olive jacket.
