Chicago... Wicker Park: Isabel Antic

Chicago… Wicker Park: Isabel Antic

August 13, 2012

I randomly spotted the lovely Isabel Antic of the blog Stitch by Stitch walking down Damen Avenue in Wicker Park on Saturday afternoon. The fantastic PanAm blue of her bag reminds me of when flight attendants were still called stewardesses and the deep lime green of her shift dress just screams 60s, as do her saddle shoes. I photographed her in front of the old brick school to make the photo look like it could have been from the 60s, which is why you don’t see any vehicles that could date the image. Thanks for being patient Isabel!

Isabel is quite talented at designing, sewing, and reworking vintage pieces and fabric into her own unique creations. As a teenager I always wanted to be someone like Isabel, who takes the initiative and creativity to¬†make one-of-a-kind fashion designs that fit her 60s-schoolgirl-meets-Twin-Peaks aesthetic. Instead I’ll just write about how cool she is. The end.


  1. Nice! She looks great. Love the bag and the scalloped hemline of her cool dress!

  2. Super cute look, especially her shift dress.

  3. Love everything about her look!
