Where to Score Designer Duds for Less

I was home in Chicago for about 2.5 weeks between trips and it felt so nice to be in one spot for a (v. short) bit. Especially during the peak of one of my favorite seasons! I live for summer, but there’s something so refreshing about the fall. Football, the foliage, turtlenecks, booties, pumpkin treats, the crisp air, chili, cozy sweaters, and in Chicago’s case this year… baseball! I returned home from Paris to all of the leaves in Chicago turning colors and couldn’t have been happier about it… Plus, it hasn’t been *that* cold yet, so it’s been the best of both worlds. And getting to be home for the Cubs winning the World Series?! Perfect timing. Between going out for games and trying to catch up on life, it was a jam packed few weeks, that’s for sure.

One of the things I was able to do when I was home was visit the new Nordstrom Rack Last Chance store in Yorktown Center! You guys… It was insane. It’s one of those stores where the hunt is so worth it. Gucci shoes, Tom Ford sunglasses, Louboutins, Valentino shoes, YSL booties, Burberry coats, Barbour coats, Phillip Lim bags… So many high-end designer duds at a fraction of the retail price. And then there were Kate Spade bags, Tory Burch shoes, Nike sneakers, Joie, Vince, Rebecca Taylor, the list goes on and on and on. And everything is at unbelievable prices! I picked up a Max Mara sweater for $80, this cashmere Equipment turtleneck for $20, an Equipment v-neck sweater for $12, Le Specs sunglasses for $14, this Cole Haan toggle jacket for $40, and this navy hat for $8. Insane, right?!

The store just opened on October 20th in Lombard and it’s such a quick drive from the city. Hallie and I made a morning out of it a few weeks ago if you recall our Snapchat Q&A on the drive home!

I recommend going in the morning when they first open! If you have Veteran’s Day off this coming Friday, it’s the perfect time to make the trip. Here’s the address if you want to check it out… 

100 Yorktown Shopping Center, Lombard, IL  60148

    Love everything about this – the color scheme is right up my alley. The shoes go without saying … I obviously drooled over them or I wouldn’t have had you waste half of your already busy day hunting down the only pair left in US this past summer!!
    I will definitely need to make the trip up north when you are back after the 22nd to check out this Nordstrom Rack store. You know I don’t like stores of this type and take your word if you and Hallie liked it. I remember going with you to the NR store in Brooklyn shortly after it opened two years ago and it was nice.
