We caught up with local artist Brittany Steiner. Her artwork is currently being featured on some of our graphic T's. We go back almost a decade with Brittany, as we use to slaaang shoes together (we use to work at a shoe store.....) and later clothing, hence her biased feelings on our "do the shoes make the outfit question." ;)
Favorite piece of clothing you own?
My Vegabond black ankle boots.
Favorite trend? Most hated?
I love the whole throwback to the 90’s thing, with the platforms, grunge, etc. I think it is important to incorporate a few things from trends, but not to overdo it, or you are just a slave to fashion.
Do the shoes make the outfit?
1000% absolutely(****insert blade in our heart)
What do you love about living in Chicago? Hate?
Best Summers. Worst Winters.
Favorite clothing designer or brand?
Vagabond, Jeffrey Campbell, Irregular Choice. I have a closer relationship with shoes than clothing. (****blade now twisted)

Listening to music/ drinking wine while working on an oil painting. Or, sleeping.
