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.

I met Amy at Gallery 326 early in the evening and was immediately taken by her sweet and slick 50’s flip hair, paired perfectly with a creme cardigan and bold animal print dress. Leyton caught my eye at the old Pabst Factory. She paired a gorgeous red skirt with vintage jewelery and comfy moccasins for an overall adorable and summery outfit.

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!

    No kidding if we want 50’s hair and animal prints we can go to the country club not Spring Gallery Night.

    A fashion column in Milwaukee is so deliciously laughable, this one especially so.
