The Division and Ashland intersection is usually abuzz with ridiculous characters. Several bus stops, the Blue Line Division stop, and a taxi stand make this a hub of commuter activity in Wicker Park. Finding a fashion disaster is a pretty safe bet.
But yesterday, something wonderful happened.
I spotted a million El-Yes contenders. It was an El-Yes fest!
What the El was going on?
The sky was blue and rays of sun glittered down to the street. Everyone was beautifully dressed and looked so chic. I swear I heard a choir of angels (A unicorn and a rainbow might have also been involved too).
I was snapping away when I saw Miss El-Yes. She was wearing two of my least favorite pieces (a modified harem pant and a cape) but managed to look rather hip and tailored. The key was that the pant was rather slim and the cape was belted to show off her waist. This mixture could have easily gone south but she did a good job of keeping the look crisp and flattering.
Miss El-Yes was also wearing some delicious silver flats and power walking down the street. I tried to get a picture but she was so fast! I think she was running off to a meeting to cure cancer or end global warming or something equally as important.
