Over the weekend we got a little air time with fashion expert Carson Kressley, boob-toob star from Queer Eye For the Straight Guy, shares with us his dress secrets, favorite shopping spots, and the spiffy ensemble he wore at the kick-off events for In Fashion: The Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival.
“I shop to get inspiration for my own designs. I enjoy vintage flea markets, a hunt at Zara or H&M, and high retailers for a great investment in nice shoes. My shoes have to be great quality,” said Kressley.
His outfit consisted of black Prada pants that he purchased in California, a white button-down Prada shirt, a black knit tie, an Aramis belt, and a retro Lenin jacket with a bold print. Lets not forget about the infamous quirky purple and black circle printed socks Kressley sported at the In Fashion launch. He indicated that his monochromatic look needed a flash of color. -Braylen Barr
