Shopping by City

Those of you who have kept up with my *fantastic* posts through the years know that I kind of have a personal vendetta against Lucky magazine. It's not the clothes that they feature, or anything like that, but they need to FIRE their writers....euugh, I hate cheesy fashion jargon, and the mag is SATURATED with it!

All that aside, they do have a feature in the magazine which showcases a city (US or abroad) and all the fantastic shops for clothing, homewares, knick-knacks, and everything in between. And I'll admit, it's great to save those little articles...who knows when you'll travel to exotic locales like....Austin! Or maybe they'll feature your city one day! So in that vain, I'm presenting to you the fantastic city of CHICAGO...any Chicago readers??
