About Lora LaPratt
...Chicago’s Friendly Fashionista!
Hi! My name is Lora LaPratt, of Shopping Girl XOXO, I am a personal stylist for clients nation-wide. I pride my business on really getting to know my clients on a personal level and helping to bring out each individual’s style based on their interests, body shape, coloring, and overall way of life! I also love to work with local designers and boutiques to keep my clients looking unique and individual rather than matching everyone else walking down Michigan Ave! I am a lover of the color purple, a complete bohemian at heart, believe comfort and happiness are the best outfit makers, and can’t get enough of a great high rise jean and oversized blazer combo on myself! Yet, I love to transport into my clients styles and help them to look and most importantly FEEL amazing in whatever style they are drawn to!
Based in Chicago with a degree in Fashion Merchandising, a BA in Organizational Communications, and stylist positions in Downtown Chicago, I have both the education and experience necessary to find what best fits you. I have close connections with department stores and "hidden gems” of boutiques throughout the Chicago area. I am the fashion editor for Fete Lifestyle Magazine and have been featured as a style expert on ABC7 Chicago, WGN-TV, NBC Chicago Today, FOX Chicago, Comcast Community Connection, Meet The Elite Podcast, The Health and Wellness Forum, WGN Radio with Steve Bertrand, WGN Radio's Business Lunch with Steve Williams, WGN 720am with Jane and Pete, AEWheelhouse, in Medium.com, Thrive Global, The Key Magazine, The Real Chicago, Voyage Chicago, Huffington Post, GoPride.com, Block Club Chicago, Do312, Yelp Shops Local, Inside Publications, Randolph Market's Choice for Charity, Chicago View, Xoobies, Helathy Living, Glamhive, My Daily Find Chicago, CRAVE, Chiguide, Stef In The City, Monday Morning Jolt, Cheeky Chicago, WCIU You and Me In The Morning, WGN's Turi Ryder Show, Central Lakeview Merchants Association, Chicago Woman, The Examiner, Fab-U-Wish, have been featured in and written numerous local blogs and host styling events in and around the Chicago area.
