Oh, what a night! Spring Gallery Night is always a blast, with plenty to see and do and plenty of people out on the town. On Friday I hit up the Third Ward and Downtown to scope out some fresh gallery offerings and in the meantime ran into a few fabulously fashionable ladies out on the town that left me near green with envy. Let’s face it — Milwaukee isn’t home to haute couture. That being said, people here definitely know how to mix function with fashion and look good year round. Now that the season has changed and temperatures are rising, I’ve been seeing nothing but vibrant colors and cuts all over town. Amid my travels last night, a few lovely ladies caught my eye and graciously agreed to let me photograph them for this edition of Threads.
Zoe looked picture perfect in a belted red polka-dot dress and ballet flats. I should point out that she was just as sweet as she looks, and even offered to purchase yours truly a cocktail (and I’ll have you know that I respectfully declined!). Last but certainly not least was Vicky, whom I spied meandering around The Parachute Project’s inaugural show. Vicky had the perfect amount of spring color combined with Midwestern practicality. Her light and flouncy gingham dress was set off by opaque black tights and bright red saddle shoes. Adorable!
