When you're fashion-savvy, even the most mundane task is a reason to dress up and show off your style. Last week we spotted Chicago's Ilona Fortune, who was visiting Denver and looking great while walking her dog, Benjamin, near 17th and Welton streets downtown. "Denver has more of an outdoor style of clothes, for mountains or biking," she observes. "It's casual, and I like it. Chicago is more high-heel style and suits for guys in the downtown area, but closer to he suburbs it gets more hip and casual." We stopped to chat with this chic visitor about who designed her silver shoes and where she shops.
Those silver shoes are by Steve Madden, and the corrugated soles make them perfect for walking on pavement. Her purse is by Lauren for Ralph Lauren. Fortune's daytime look is fortunate, indeed, pairing designer accessories, like her bag and shoes, with yellow shorts and short-sleeved button-up.
Style inspirations and icons: "I don't look to anyone besides myself, really. When I go shopping, I get inspired. "
