Emory Davis is one of the stylish sales associates at the Marc by Marc Jacobs shop in Bucktown, where she's worked for a few years now. Helping someone find a piece that best expresses their personality is her favorite task. "Fashion is constantly changing and borrowing from past experiences, which makes it a great medium for telling our own stories," she explains.

Although she's a fan of black threads, Davis sometimes purposely picks brighter colored items, like the yellow polka-dot skirt pictured above, in order to brighten her mood. "I always try to dress for the mood I want to be in. . . . If I allow myself to stay in the sweatpants I walk my dog with, then I know I'm not going to be very productive. They're too comfortable!" From the latest MBMJ collection, she's been coveting a hot-pink slip skirt, layered with sheer UV Italian organza and hints of lace, that looks like something a futuristic pin-up would wear: "It seems like it would be really difficult to fold into your existing wardrobe, but it actually works great with a T-shirt and sneakers."
