Psychic stylist Kelly Rabbath (KellyRabbath.com) was doing her grocery shopping in Lincoln Park.
How does a typical psychic styling session go?
There really is no such thing as a typical styling session. Every woman I work with is so different and her needs are so specific that I’m always sort of being surprised by myself and the magic that materializes with each new client. Before I can help her find that fresh new look, I have to know her. Find out what she desires. What does she want to attract or accomplish with her image? What validates and flatters her body? There are a thousand questions to ask and a billion angles to consider. I bypass most of them by starting out my styling sessions with an energy reading.

How would you describe your outfit?
In essence this is my “uniform,” if you will. I am a fashion designer and my work involves machinery, scissors and whatnot. I direct my hair into a French twist and chiffon scarf. I always wear my “thinking boots.” My work boots are very sentimental to me. I wear them whenever I am designing or constructing my collection. I keep my “uniform” neutral or black so that my personal wardrobe doesn’t draw me away from my muse and imagination. I have a love affair with velvet. This is one of my favorite Ralph Lauren velvet blazers with a turn-of-the-century peplum feel. I personally enjoy unapologetically feminine silhouettes contrasted with a dangerous punk vibe.

Journalist Jessica Hopper was hanging out at this year’s Lollapalooza in Grant Park.
What do you think of the style you’ve been seeing at Lollapalooza?
My friend and I were discussing that if you took all the jorts [jean shorts] at Lolla and stacked them flat, how tall would it be? How about jorts with the butts still in them, would it be as tall as Willis tower? I think so. Lolla style: functional and identical.
Could you tell me a bit about your jumpsuit?
