Some people in Chicago eat, sleep, and dream fashion. Those people shop at Bloomingdale’s. A fantasy world of high-end designer duds on the North Side, this iconic store is the perfect place to spend a day shopping and gossiping with your girlfriends. While every corner drips with the latest designer fashions, frequent sales and trunk shows ensure that the hunt for your next statement piece will be both exciting for you and easy on your wallet. Though this full-service department store has every part of your wardrobe, it’s especially known for its extensive collection of shoes, so make sure you and your best friend don’t wear the same size before you go. You don’t want to fight over that last pair of fabulous leopard-print Gucci pumps. Spend some time shopping around, filling up a fitting room, and dishing on each other’s picks. If you’re still having some trouble deciding, call in the help of a Bloomingdale’s professional for some personal shopping expertise. You’ll leave this stylish spot skipping, with little brown bags in each hand.
