How to Do Chicago Like a Fashion It Girl


Lyndsey Butler

Over 52 million people visit Chicago every year. One of those people is Lyndsey Butler, the designer behind the leather-centered NYC brand Veda. Butler was headed into town for a quick work trip but managed to squeeze in some fun (and take us along for the ride). So what are the Chicago fashion events and activities on her list?

Below, is a mini guide to doing Chicago like a fashion girl. There weren't any hot dogs (but hey, there were pancakes). And shopping is definitely on the agenda, but there are plenty of other activities for when you need a break from building your wardrobe. While we can't promise you'll be able to zip up your carry-on for the flight home, we can guarantee you'll have a great time. So take a look at Lyndsey's recommendations for your next trip to the Windy City, and then shop a few of our favorite pieces from Veda, available now.
