LAKEVIEW, WICKER PARK - Warmth this winter is just one attribute you want in a hat when it's snowing in Chicago but a more important attribute is that it be stylish. And then if it's 50% off, well, that's just off the hizzie, yo. Both Goorin Bros. locations in Lakeview and Wicker Park as well as their online store have got it going on... so hurry up- it's cold in here. [Racked Wire]
BUCKTOWN - And just because the holidays are over doesn't mean you can't dress up and play naughty Mrs. Claus. G Boutique, Bucktown's luxe lingerie and sex-ed store is having a major sale right now. Costumes for role playing, surprises in the bedroom, and mid-winter parties are all 50% off. We're talking costumes with names like Maiden Voyage Pirate, Third Base Baseball, Santa Baby and brands like Huit, On Gossamer, Simone Perele and more. [Racked Wire]
