Ionut & Jenna: Chicago’s Spring Cold Snap!
Chicago weather is a cruel schizophrenic mistress. Part evil dominatrix, part gentle lover. That’s the nature of the beast. I’m always telling friends and family in Arkansas that the winters are totally worth living through because summers are so fucking amazing in this city. But sadly, it comes as no surprise that the lovely 75 degree weather we’ve been enjoying lately would be crushed under the wheels of a giant cold front blasting us from that jerk to the north, Canada (just kidding, I love maple syrup and hockey). I loved how these two friends, Ionut and Jenna, dressed in response to this recent cold snap. I chose not to ask Jenna to close the loops on her coat, since I love to capture the authenticity and “un-doneness” of real people. I also love to make up new words. Seriously though, these two were totally worth jumping off the brown line at Armitage to photograph on my way downtown this afternoon. And of course, most of the fabulous pieces they’re wearing are vintage.
