You’ve read Mary Beth Klatt‘s news-stuffed posts on UnBeige before, but as half of our editorial team prepares to head off for a week of pre-Fashion Week fasting, Pilates, and sartorial palette cleansing, we thought we’d tell you a little more about our trusty Guest Blogger. Mary Beth is a Chicago-based writer specializing in architecture, design, and fashion. You may have seen her writing in such publications as Readymade, Craft, Chicago Home + Garden, and USA Weekend. She’s also a cartoonist and an accomplished sewer. “My closet bulges with hundreds of dollars of fabric and my office spills over with spools of thread and unfinished garments,” she tells us. When she’s not battling notions or pinch-hitting for Team UnBeige, you can follow Mary Beth’s creative adventures on her blog, The Lazy Milliner. Hats off to Mary Beth for spending this week with us!
