And now for your weekly dose of shopping intelligence from Racked Chicago, covering everything you need to know about retail from the sidewalks up.
RIVER NORTH—Full-service high-end consignment Ebay store, Luxury Garage Sale had an amazing pop-up shop at Oak Street Design's studio on Wednesday. We went, we shopped and we conquered it. We found everything pretty from Balenciaga to Miu Miu to Missoni and beyond.
EVERYWHERE—We're social, you know, sometimes you can see us online at work - frequenting the usual bloggy vices; The Facebook, we tweet, and now we've got the Racked 38 Foursquare Badge. Simply, if you're following us on Foursquare, and you check-in to three of our most essential shopping experiences you get the badge - and then you can brag to all your friends that you unlocked the Racked 38 badge.
WICKER PARK—Living in Chicago you have to pay attention to the food scene - there's just no way around it. So even though we're all about retail we heard that Paul Kahn is having a garage sale at Big Star on Sunday. Oh yeah, they told us there'll be cocktails and tacos too.
GOLD COAST—The men of the moment converged on the runway last week for The Drake Hotel's Bourbon & Burgers men's event. Outfitted by Trunk Club and accessorized by Shrine Haberdashers, these model citizens were dressed to the nines and we got ahold of the the photos that prove it.
