September letter from the Editor

Monday, September 01, 2014 HALFSTACK MAGAZINE

Wow, September has sneaked its way into our lives Halfstackers. While this summer has been an odd one with the crazy weather, I am honestly looking forward to the fall. It is by far one of my favorite seasons for fashion and for things going on in Chicago. It is also one of my favorite months as it is the release of Halfstack's Fall Issue - our annual music issue.

The end of the summer has so many music festivals going on, great events and is just the perfect time to enjoy all that Chicago has to offer. This upcoming issue will have some amazing music features, showcase some awesome indie talent and has such a fun fashion editorial featuring Starved Hustle (a Chicago based t-shirt line) and indie band Fue. Check out the sneak peek below!
