Best of 2013

Posted on Tuesday, December 31, 2013

Hello everyone!
I hope that everyone had a lovely and wild 2013. It was a big year that's for sure. I think my first picture describes my year perfectly. I decided to make my "Chloé Akari 2013 un-published" in color along with some classic black and white photos. I hope you enjoy the select few that I wanted to share with you to help sum up my year. I want to really give a huge thank you to my friends, family, and readers, my supporters. I would not be able to continue my work and run this blog with out you guys. I could not be more thankful and happy to have such a great support system and team. As I look into 2014, some of my resolutions for myself are: to continue to stay focused on school and studies, post more frequently, create art more often, and keep motivated. I wish everyone a very happy, successful, and fashionable 2014!

Minimal Eclectic

Posted on Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Happy Holidays everyone! My cousin Kyra is in town for the break so we decided to do a photo shoot in 7 degree Chicago weather. There was a random shopping cart that was tipped over that added some interesting shots. I created a slight theme of the color berry, seen in my lips and Kyra's outfit. Also a little play with my minimal outfit and Kyra's sweet detailed look. As you know my style is a little mix of both. I hope that everyone has a wonderful break and New Year! Please stay warm and healthy in this crazy cold! 


-Chloé Akari

My look: Kimchi Blue top-dress, HUE tights, TopShop shoes, and Deena and Ozzy bag.
Kyra's look: Ted Baker chandelier skirt, Urban Outfitter tights, Club Monaco mens button down, TopShop heels, and vintage jewelry 

Mermaid Art

Hey guys!
I have been doing many wearable and more outfit of the day looks on my blog. Maddie and I decided to do an art based photo shoot. Maddie painted on the scalloped scales on both of us, she is an amazing artist. I wanted to give a bit of a simpler look for our outfits to showcase the art. The jewels are hanging off of us because we were buried in treasures!

Hey Guys,
Brooke and I had a photo shoot during our little Thanksgiving break. We shot at Brooke's beautiful home on a pretty day! Brooke is a new model and had her first shoot on the blog, definitely not her last. The lighting was prime for once, a rare sighting in Chicago! I was very appreciative for the lighting because I've missed it for a while. I tried to create a more sophisticated look for us, using a classic high necklines and appropriate hems. 

-Chloé Akari

My look: Maude skirt, HUE tights, American Apparel top, Phillip Lim for Target bag, and Dolce Vita heels.
Brooke's look: Fjäll sweater, Chanel boots and skirt, and vintage jewelry.
