Lauren Orciuolo was shopping along Milwaukee Avenue in Wicker Park.
Who’s your style icon?
I don’t have just one. I will say Anna Karina can do no wrong.
What inspires you the most?
Weekends spent at my favorite antique shops inspire me. I love fashion and home decor from decades past. For me, inspiration can come from old movies, vintage clothing or beautifully styled fashion editorials.
What’s the secret to putting a great outfit together?
There’s no secret. Putting together unexpected pieces is always fun. I love playing with print and texture and gravitate toward lots of color. As long as you feel confident in what you’re wearing, it’s a great outfit.
Do you always dress up or is there a special occasion today?
No special occasion. I was just getting lunch in the neighborhood. Most days you will find me in heels, a dress and, of course, bright red lipstick.
