Shopping with Luis of ChiCityTrends

Luis Torres is one of the cutest fashion people I know. His enthusiasm for fashion is infectious and he’s a really fun person to shop with. On Wednesday we met up in River North, where we spent the afternoon perusing the racks at AllSaints Spitalfields and Nordstrom. I love shopping with Luis because he always tells me the truth about whether or not he likes the way something looks on me. He has a very good eye about what looks right on the female form.

Luis not only runs his own blog, ChiCityTrends, but he also interns at Refinery29 and CS Magazine while holding down a part-time job at Akira. He starts college this fall at UIC. Suffice it to say young Luis has accomplished more as a high schooler in one year than many adult fashion bloggers have in several. He’s a plain old-fashioned hard worker who lives and breathes fashion like I do. Maybe that’s why we became friends so quickly!

Find Luis on Twitter, @LuisTJr. Become a fan of his blog on Facebook here.

Me goofing off with Luis

I have a sense of humor and like to mess around. Never take yourself so seriously you can’t make fun of yourself!

  3. Amazing article Amy. I actually just met this guy today and he's awesome. 🙂 Love your blog.


  4. It’s really great when you have somebody to shop with who knows exactly what looks good on you. The shoes look awesome by the way. I actually saw something similar in a magazine which featured australian designers.
