Right now, we want velvet skirts, Luxurious Sloth necklaces and more.
Statement-making jewelry is less about huge pieces than unusual designs. Nailing it: Dovetail owner Julie Ghatan’s new line of necklaces, Luxurious Sloth, featuring brass tubing and chains mixed with colorful cotton thread and peacock fringe. $40 at Dovetail, 1452 W Chicago Ave (312-243-3100, dovetailchicago.com).
In planning our fall wardrobe wants, we loosely divide potential purchases into two categories: practical and not-so-practical. Add this Emerson Fry stunning velvet mocha-colored skirt to the “not-so-practical.” $295 at shop.emersonfry.com.
Air fresheners are fine, but why is the packaging often so tacky? That’s certainly not the case with these cans of Archer Air Superiority fresheners. The design is simple, and the scents (geared toward gentlemen) come in three refreshing flavors: European sports car, distillery and hunting lodge. Bonus points because they’re locally made. $14 each at Haymaker Shop (5507 N Clark St, 773-681-0798).
Kanye West recently rapped on Cruel Summer that Derrick Rose is a nice guy, and we couldn’t agree more. Check out the Rose logo on his new adidas shoe, D Rose 3, out this week: The Bulls player says it represents his family, basketball and Chicago. $160 at adidas (923 N Rush St, 312-932-0651, adidas.com).
