And now the latest from the shopping experts at Racked Chicago, reporting on style and retail from the sidewalks up...
STREETERVILLE - Looking forward to the big Burberry Bonanza 2012, we like to update the shopping public with small morsels of information pertaining to how the store is coming along. Your update this week: Perhaps the most important part of this flagship, the plaid on the facade has been lit.
CONTEST ALERT - We've partnered with West Coast purveyor of vintage, Decades who is doing a pop-up at space519 this weekend. Decades and Racked are giving away a pair of free luxury shoes every month for a year (that's 12 pairs of shoes). All you've got to do is snap a pic of the shoes you're wearing or your fave pair and tweet @RackedChicago and @DecadesInc. Easy breezy free shoes!
GOLD COAST - Anna Dello Russo launched this week at H&M. Unfortunately for H&M, Chicagoans didn't get it. But fortunately for people who weren't able to make the launch, there's still a ton of accessories left to shop.
LINCOLN PARK - The Chicago Marathon is here this weekend which miraculously coincides with the reopening of Niketown Chicago and the launch of the limited edition of the LunarGlide+4 by Cody Hudson.
