the Elmhurst IT-bag.

August 25, 2008

Good ‘ol Elmhurst, Illinois. Just when I get a bit homesick for the west coast…or when I long to live in a place with the fashion sensibilities of Firenze, I come back to yet another local find! Ellu is a line of handbags by local designer, Leslie Pozen. Her bags are not only super-cute, but are really well made with durable fabrics, strong stitching and nicely detailed hardware. Check out her new website!

shop locally.

Just wanted to write a little blurb about my favorite local clothing store, Camden. Clothes shopping is slim pickins in Chicago’s western burbs, let me tell you! So I was so happy to have this little shop open up! It’s as stylish as any city store…I can always find something cute and the gals who work there are always helpful {without being pushy}.
