A few weeks ago I got invited to the Stitch Fix HQ in San Francisco for few days of learning the ins and outs of the company, touring the warehouse and a full day of fashion, hair, makeup and photoshoots! Many of you who’ve been AK readers for years, know that I’ve been doing Stitch Fix for about 3 years and even used to do reviews on the blog. So when I got in invite, it was a dream come true!

P.S. If you haven’t tried Stitch Fix you totally should. Just sign up, fill out a style profile and you are on your way. You’ll get 5 pieces in a box that’s delivered straight to your front door. The cost? Just a $20 styling fee. You’re not required to keep any of the pieces that were sent either. Simply place the items in the return bag and mail it back within 3 days. Pretty sweet, right?!

WELCOME to the beginning of what I’m calling The Chicago Series, an Ambitious Kitchen guide to the absolute best spots for food & entertaining in Chicago! This first guide came about because of my unprecedented love for donuts, coupled with a crazy good low key donut scene in Chicago.

Ever since moving here almost two years ago, I’ve been incredibly impressed with the amount of delicious donut shops. Each place specializing in their own unique take, from fat and yeasty to classic old fashioned with a twist. What could be better than starting the day with a donut, a cup of coffee and a sense of adventure? Not much.
