Independent jewelry designer: Laura Lombardi

Best locally based style website: Darkroom Demons

"An honest perspective of what Chicagoans look like at night with lots of shots of beautiful people in their beautiful clothes. It's a fun change from street style blogs, where all the photos are taken in the daylight hours."
