Actually Cool Gifts Under $100

In my first ever actually consistent multi-part series of gift guides this year, we’re now moving on from custom gifts to something more generic…but I’m going to [try and] make it more exciting. How many gift guides have you seen with junk under $100? If you weren’t on a budget before, everyone seems to be on a budget when it comes to the holidays, but that doesn’t mean you should compromise your gift giving. So, today I’m bringing you 24 gifts (for both the ladies and the gents!) under $100 that you’ll be proud to give this year (and when adding to cart you won’t feel guilty about “quantity 2″ because let’s face it, you’ll probably buy something for yourself…it happens to the best of us).

Open For Business

I admit, Chicago is no New York. We are a city that actually sometimes sleeps, our pizza clearly isn’t everyone’s favorite and we don’t have a cool boutique on every corner. With that said, I love sleep, I prefer Neapolitan style pizza and we just had four awesome new stores open this month. Care to find out who has graced this fine city with their presence?

Chi City’s Most Stylish: Shannon Jamar Eaton

When you come across one of the best dressed guys in Chicago and he just so happens to live by the motto “chivalry is not dead,” you can’t help but be intrigued by this person, right?

Well I found that person and he has many names, is a jack of all trades but most importantly, he has killer style.

NYFW Fall 2013 Day 2

If you’re not in NYC, you may have heard about this little storm called Nemo. Not sure where this name came about but let’s just say it was not easy to dress for. I assumed everyone would be dressed down at least a little bit (after all, would YOU want to ruin a $1,500 pair of shoes?) but I was pretty wrong. I didn’t think I’d be the only one in jeans and a t-shirt with flat boots, but I was wrong. It’s probably the Chicago in me that wants to go utilitarian. But at least I didn’t look like the idiot outside Lincoln Center in a super short and tight mini dress, with no tights and platform pumps. Yes, this really happened. But let’s get to the real fashion now.
