Cristha Fuentes and Her Pink Oxfords at UTZ market

One day while scrolling through the #ihavethisthingwithpink community, I came across an Instagram capture of the most magnificent pair of shoes. Not just any pair of shoes mind you, but a pair of leather pink oxfords. Clutch the pearls and be still my heart. Somebody fan me and give me my credit card ASAP!!!!! I need these in suckers my life. I was crushing hard and my little ticker was just a beating. Mission “Must Find These Shoes” was in full effect.

Immediately I tapped the image looking for tags. Nothing. I started Googling pink oxfords. Hmmm, broaden the search for pink shoes…ya no, only heels popped up…I wanted oxfords…pretty pink oxfords. I couldn’t believe it, I was coming up empty handed. Not being one to give up easily, and after a bit more frantic stalking searching, I finally found the designer and maker — Cristha Fuentes. I immediately stalked her on Facebook emailed her and begged her politely asked where I could buy a pair for myself.

New Headshots Alt Summit

Since my blog photo was a selfie taken in my basement after returning from the gym (eeeek…can we say sweaty and gross…bet you’ll never look at that picture the same, huh?). I decided y’all don’t need to be lookin’ at that anymore. House Of Hipsters needed a little update. Besides, you’ve been looking at this same photo for almost 3 years now. It’s about time.

Instagram Pop Up Shop

For the longest time The Boy has been telling me to clean up the storage room. At the point you can’t even walk into the room without tripping over some vintage find. But, I’ve been dragging my feet because I love everything, I just don’t have a place and space for it all. I also refuse to donate Dwell Studio pillows. We donate a lot, but I just can’t do that. So, today I’m testing the waters to see who is interested. I’m considering hosting an Instagram Pop Up Shop, and you’re invited.

Style Post — Dressing For Spring

Dressing for spring in Chicago can be tricky. The mornings can be quite chilly while the afternoons are comfortable. And then you can get days like Monday where we had blizzard like conditions; while today is pushing 60° and sunny. It’s madness. You never know if the snow is gone for good until it hits 90° and even then it can be a crap shoot.
