Windy City Street Style: Raissa Gomes


Happy Hump Day Friends,

We can thank Instagram for introducing us to Raissa Gomes. She has a passion for fashion and initially used the platform to grace us with her unique sense of style. A few years ago, Raissa moved from Brasil to Chicago in order to continue her education. And last year I had the pleasure of meeting her and becoming acquainted with her blog, s1mpl3e .


WCW: How would you describe your personal style?

RG: I would describe my style as bohemian with a twist of vintage. I love to pair new and old things.


WCW: Whats in your purse?

RG: Chapstick, mascara, my grainstack wallet and most likely some candy.

WCW: What’s your favorite accessory?

RG: My favorite accessory is definitely a nice hat. I have a obsession with hats and I think that it can spice up any look and be the perfect addition to any outfit.


WCW: If I peeked in your closet, what brands or designs would I see repeat?

RG:  If you go on my closet you will see a lot of Forever21, brands from Urban Outfitters, some vintage clothes from designers I’ve never heard of before and a few of my own pieces which I’ve sewn myself.


WCW: How do you stay stylish throughout the ever changing seasons and weather in Chicago?

RG: The key to surviving Chicago’s climate while remaining fashionable is to LAYER UP! I recently wrote a blog post here about layering.

WCW: Do you dress differently for work?

RG: I work as a nanny and I definitely dress different for my  job! I only wear sweat pants, sweat shirts and really comfortable clothes.


WCW: Name your favorite place to shop online and in store.

RG: I’m not a big fan of online shopping but my favorite online store is ASOS and my favorite place to shop in store is definitely Urban Outfitters.


If you haven’t been by lately, visit Raissa and her blog s1mpl3e, where we forget about fashion rules and the tried and true, as we can embrace the old and new!

    Hi! I just started to follow you, but I felt in love with your blog. I love the way you write the interviews and I also love that you are based on Chicago! ♥ My point is, I nominated you to the Liebster Award, because I wanted to give you some recognition, although my blog is not a big deal. If you want the prize you just have to follow the rules 🙂
