Say hello to the best way to explore Chicago and its culture at the comfort of your own home: Rose Phillips. Recently, I had the pleasure to interview the founder of Rose Phillips, Lakesha Rose; I learned about its main objective to accomplish for its readers and what the perfect summer outfit should consist of according to Mrs. Rose.
Rose Phillips is an online platform that promotes local businesses in Chicago through the products and services of “life, style, home, food/wine, and radar”. One of the unique traits of Rose Phillips is that not only does it promote local entrepreneurs in the Chicago area, but it also aims to help one reach their dreams through its published content. Rose Phillips isn’t only for the Chicago native but for everyone who wants to succeed in life like you and me.
Mrs. Rose decided to create this online platform because she noticed that no one was really capturing Chicago for what it’s truly worth; she wanted to make readers see the creativeness and diversity we have to offer in a form of a city guide. Personally, what I love most about Rose Phillips, is the access to the “Business to Consumer’s Directory” thus making it easier to shop local for everyone.
According to Mrs. Rose, the ideal summer outfit must consist of a pop of color and quality over quantity.
Mrs. Rose is wearing a beautiful yellow maxi skirt from Carolina Herrera. A green silk blouse, as shown in this look, not only compliments the yellow but also coordinates with the fabric itself. It coordinates evenly because the two colors transition into one another thus making it an analogous relationship. This is the best way to remember how to balance bold colors within a look.
