Evanston Stylewatch: Ebony rocks leg warmers!

This young lady is probably one of the best dressed Evanstonians I've seen since moving to this fine city. It's not just the matching above the boot leg warmers and handbag or the crazy fun vintage frames that caught my eye. Ebony was more than willing to strike a pose outside of the library for some lady with a smart phone who claimed she took fashion photos! Thanks Ebony, you made the world a more beautiful place that day and this blog too!
