Michigan Avenue was packed yesterday! I was out among them, checking out how many women were wearing dark colors…
I was wearing a black dress, which is normal for me on even the hottest days. I migrate to the shady side of the street as often as possible, and I DID notice that a lot of people were doing the same!
