What are the most amusing responses you’ve gotten when wearing that coat?
I am just waiting to cause an accident because people literally slow down their cars to stare. Famed Walnut Room pianist Roberta Brown recently pulled up in a car next to me while I was walking down Rush Street to compliment me on it.
Your favorite places to shop?
Sarca in the Gold Coast (710 N Wabash Ave, 312-255-0900) is a great boutique for special purchases, and I love their Erin Gordon jewelry. I am also a huge fan of vintage pop-up shops like SisterMan and Jenstyle. I recently splurged at Hermès (25 E Oak St, 312-787-8175) and bought myself the last remaining limited-edition Chicago scarf in fuchsia, but don’t tell my mom!
