Essentially DB


If you're visiting us for the first time, you special new readers you, there's a good reason for it: you must have seen us mentioned in this week's Time Out: Chicago! Welcome! (And a gracious "hai luv" goes out to you old faithfuls.)

Apparently, Porcelain and I are still getting out of bed and firing up the laptop enough to earn design boner a feature in the "Essential Chicago" edition of Time Out. Along with DB, our web friends/rivals Strange Closets, Orange Beautiful, Making It Lovely, PrairieMod, and, new BBFF*, BackGarage, were also mentioned.

Thanks to Time Out: Chicago for giving us the cover (ha ha, ways out!), to Jessica Herman for the lovely interview/write-up, and to Nicole Radja for the lively portrait session. A final nod goes to Photoshop for allowing me to (kinda) fix my lame-ass bangs. See the entire article HERE!

I am dying about your photoshopped hairdid. I have complete Silverthiggles (Silverthorne giggles).

just say the wind blew your bangs out of place. I'm sure that happens all the time to you chic-agoians.

*OMG my word verification is matiess!! arrrrgh!!

The funny thing is, RE: the bangs, is that halfway through the photoshoot, Nicole said something to effect of, "Oh yeah, and your bangs are doing something weird." So were LOTS of photos of me with relatively normal hair...ha, guess the SAY CHEESE, eye closed, finger in nose gods didn't align to make one of those a good one.

haha, your bangs were hilarious and even more so that you fixed them here. i can feel your pain though I did not get hit on the head with the photogenic wand either... boo.

Congrats!
