Conference Chic

This Seen Style comes direct from the Chicago AWP Writer’s Conference Bookfair! Among the hundreds of book vendors and publishing stalls in gritty parking garages and exhibit halls, I spotted some serious fashion. These ladies are as dedicated to their writing as they are to their style! Sara, Poetry Editor for the Bat City Review out of Austin, TX decided she needed a splash of color to set her apart from the other journal editors. Don’t you love the citrus-y lime and orange?

And check out this writing student from the University of Iowa! She caught my eye with that gorgeous tapestry coat, and she informed me that the entire ensemble was vintage. You might not be able to tell from the photo, but the dress was velvet. Wow.
