Shop It Like It’s Hot Part 3 // Elm & Iron

After wrapping up a fun tour of the Artworks murals in OTR and scarfing down a (delicious) smoked chicken wing or five at Taft’s Ale House with my tour group, I made my way over to Elm & Iron, another Columbus-based retailer specializing in industrial-cool home decor at the corner of 14th and Vine.

Tips & Advice // 4 Reasons to Create A Look

I have this weird habit of editorializing my personal style--it comes with the job, I guess. Though I don’t go quite as far as wearing the same thing every day like this art director (which actually seems like a good idea), I like creating a look each season because it makes it easier for me to shop and edit my wardrobe. The benefits are small but meaningful: In addition to saving time getting dressed every
