Gabi in Vogue

Sorry for the slow down in posts this month, things have gotten a bit hectic. The good news is that my first Vogue Italia video is now up! (A big thank you to all of the wonderful people at Akira Chicago). I am so not used to seeing myself on video, so I'm still adjusting to that part...but the fact that I can see my face with the words VOGUE in the corner is kind of surreal. Let me know what you guys think!

  9. I'm also guilty of passing up Akira and never stopping in. I can't believe that you found so many things in there that fit. I love that cropped jacket and crazy that it was only $50!

  10. congrats gabi, love the video! looking forward to much more from you.

    also its so nice to see my hometown Chicago on display. I always find cute things at Akira and for pretty cheap. I've ever been to the one that only sells clothing on North, just the shoe store. I must check it out soon. I really like the one on Diversey and Clark. They had a really good sale on jackets and winter items last time I stopped by.

    xoxo,

  37. Hi,

    I am an amateur blogger who wants to make a name for herself. Did you go to school for this, did you model, or did you just do really great blogs and popularity and eventually someone realized how great you were and offered you a job doing what you love? That is my dream- other than opening my shop!!!
