I made a Twitter account in college to stalk celebrities (this is when Ashton Kutcher was THE celeb to follow on Twitter…does that age me?) but once I realized the fashion presence on the social media site, I lost interest in Ashton’s Coolpix (sorry Nikon) and I started following my favorite designers, magazines, and stores.
When I finally had the courage to post my own tweets, the only thing I could think of was to post about interesting things I found online and style tips in under 140 characters. After doing this for a while I was sick of Twitter limiting my thoughts - so ChiCityFashion was born.
This was an extension of what I was already doing on Twitter along with red carpet commentary, fashion happenings in Chicago, trend reports, etc. Now I really just write about whatever I want - always with a fashion twist - and damn it feels good to
be a gangster be able to do that.
