Fashion Trend: Black Glamour Girl Goes Goth at Bourgeoise Rebel Loft
The Bourgeoise REBEL Loft (BR Loft) is a playground for the rocker girl, the girlie girl and the well-heeled girl who likes to dabble on the edgier side of town.
Inside the BR Loft, a Chanel-inspired statuette rests on the floor, as a framed fabric of floating skulls hangs on the black wall. There are candles, one-of-a-kind jewelry, revamped vintage shoes, and sexy dresses and sequined shorts. There are also pearls, lace, spikes, chains, and all things gloriously Goth.
“Bourgeoise REBEL Loft is the celebration of the girlie girl with a wild side,” says owner Toni Brooks. By the way, Brooks is wearing pearls and spikes and there’s nothing outlandish about it.
Brooks says that she embraced her double fashion persona back in high school, when she wore tomboyish Air Jordans accented with an expensive Dooney & Burke bag.
Aside from the unique décor and fashion sense, Brooks also offers an affordable styling service that has Chicago all abuzz.
