    Don't give up on ditching your boring 9 to 5 in favor of your dream job, just yet. Instead, take a cue from local designer Azeeza Khan, the gorgeous entrepreneurial spirit behind Atelier AZZA. Only 30 short days after making the impulsive decision to start a biz, she launched her label at New York Fashion Week — naysayers be damned. And, her story isn't the only thing that's ultra-impressive. This go-getter has a killer wardrobe that turns heads whether she's buying groceries or out on the town—don't worry, we've got the snaps to prove it.

    Khan takes us to some of her favorite go-to spots, giving us tips on everything from how to shop vintage at the Chicago French Market to what to eat at the hot new resto Embeya. After spending time with the designer in her West Loop 'hood, it's clear to us that, just like her work ethic, Khan's sartorial skills are top-notch. So, click through and copy away—after all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
