Suede Skirt

Happy Friday! Can you believe Halloween is tomorrow?! (And that November is on Sunday?!) Halloween has been hit or miss for me over the last few years… In 2012, Hurricane Sandy derailed my Halloween plans in New York. In 2013, I was busy opening the Capwell + Co pop-up.

Uniqlo Open in Chicago!
