The Red Line: North and Clybourn

One of my best friends works at the Old Navy at the North/Clybourn stop and after visiting her there multiple times, it has become one of my favorite places to shop. The Belmont stop and Wicker Park will always and forever be my favorite stops on the El, but the next time you want to shop down Michigan Avenue- you might want to consider North/Clybourn instead. It's much quieter, there. Also, there's an American Eagle, Victoria's Secret, Express, J.Crew, Banana Republic, Old Navy, and THE CONTAINER STORE.

<--Here's me in my constant state of shopping. This was when it was still snowing a bit, so that's why I've got my winder coat on.

J.Crew's most recent display windows. I'm in love...

Top: Flea market in the Philippines
Skirt: Forever 21
TIghts: Filene's Basement
Socks: Old Navy

So do you guys any unusual places you like to shop? I hope your week is going well. Last thing: I was a creeper and took a picture of this older lady a few days ago. She SPIKED her grey hair!!! How awesome is that?!

  1. Haha, I was totally going to do a few posts about shopping in Chicago (next up: Chinatown!), I love that you sort of got the ball rolling with this. Once again, we think alike. You look adorable in those pictures!

  2. ahh! we DO think alike! wel, this isn't really considered thinking alike, but i was thinking of doing a video tutorial soon

  3. I frequent that Old Navy because they have great sales. Unfortunately I live so close to State Street that I frequent it during lunch....especially now that Block 37 is open with a new ZARA, Anthropologie, Sephora, Steve Madden and much more!

  4. I think I probably frequent the Gap far more than I should, and TJMaxx -- I pretty much live there!
    Cute look - and isn't ordering shoes from piperlime so nice? I love the boxes and note card about how cute your new shoes are!

    Chic on the Cheap
