Five questions with Ginger Lu, content creator and fashion/lifestyle blogger at Chicago-centric mei-mei
1. Where do you find design inspiration?
GL: Just in my everyday life- people on the train, teens on bikes, a cool new Scandinavian interior designer’s page, the colors in an ice cream shop...
2. How would you describe your style?
GL: Edgy but attainable. I dress pretty differently than most bloggers in the midwest, but that’s because I mix a lot of my personality into my outfits. My style changes day to day depending on my mood and I can be sporty one day and sweet the next and both the day after. I love streetwear and archive designer pieces.
3. Favorite thing to do in Chicago?
GL: Watch the sunset from the lakefront with a bottle of wine, bike from the loop to Hyde Park, paletas in Pilsen, SoHo House roof on summer nights, restaurants with fireplaces in winter, and shopping at Notre and Asrai Garden.
4. Do you have a personal motto?
GL: HUSTLE UNTIL THE HATERS ASK IF YOU'RE HIRING
5. And finally... do you have a favorite piece of jewelry?
GL: Anything from Chrome Hearts!
