One of the perks of living near the train line to this inspiring city that I adore. Another opportunity to be inspired. Perhaps the desire to get lost in the crowd, too.

Chicago is stunning no matter the season, but there is something about Springtime after long Midwest Winter. Color and warmth go far in changing one’s perspective. Sunshine and changing seasons, indeed.

Max Mara’s scene and changing attire of mannequins may remain as my personal favorite setting and backdrop from March. When artistry meets success, prolong the impact for at least another month with changing garments of fashionable appeal. Fashion merchandising at its best, for certain….

Consider with appreciation the artistry and impact of fashion behind the windows of fashion that grace the city streets. Merely acknowledging the artistry and presentation of fashion’s change surely is worthwhile. An art form itself, the windows of fashion will continue in beckon me. In appreciation, indeed…

Onward,

Kristin
