On my way to meet friends for a drink in Bucktown I spotted Denise, whose effortless sense of style immediately charmed me. I’m also partial to white nail polish, so that’s an easy way to get my attention. More importantly, she’s wearing a dress made from “sweatshirt gray” material. It’s a color I’m exploring in my own wardrobe as of late. Although I took baby steps at first, now I’m in love with its athletic-cool sensibility.


Just like Denise, I combine sweatshirt gray with crystal jewelry to balance its inherent ultra-casualness. Alexander Wang has been elevating the material for years along with 3.1 Phillip Lim and Rag & Bone so I’m a little ashamed it took me so long to warm up to the trend. Better late than never – right!?


EDIT: Denise recently started a blog and sent me the link. Check out more of her great style over at Winged Almonds!


  1. She’s gorgeous. It’s hard to go wrong with that style of grey in chic cuts.


  2. Hi Amy! It’s Denise (in the grey:))
    Thanks! Love the shot! You’re an amazing photographer!! That day I was actually taking pictures for my blog that I told you about. I just made it public today. Check it out- I would to link back to this page and your website in my post if thats okay? I am new to this so I wanted to make sure I asked you first:)

  3. Yeah she is indeed a very stylish young lady. I’m also a huge fan of maxis for its style and comfort so this sweatshirt-gray one is surely a winner in my book! And I agree that she has the cutest toe nail color!
