ANNOUNCEMENT: Shopping Correspondent for "Chicago Like A Local"

Hello, my lovely readers!

For months, I have been wanting to share some exciting news with you. However, time was needed to hash out and solidify the final details.

Now, I can officially unzip my lip to let you know that I will be the official shopping correspondent for the Chicago Convention and Tourism Bureau’s newly launched blog Chicago Like A Local!

The CCTB has gathered together a group of local experts to provide visitors with all they need to know about Chicago Shopping, Dining, Sports, Entertainment and Family Fun…but from the perspective of a local. All of the contributing bloggers will present to visitors places and activities that are not necessarily mentioned in Chicago tour guides.

Being a part of CCTB’s new endeavor is indeed an honor! There’s nothing that gives me more joy than exposing the masses to the great shopping options in Chicago.

Due to the fact that ChiTown Fashionista was created as a platform for local designers and boutiques, I’m still working out how to avoid overlapping topics on both websites. I’m sure it will all come together in due time. At ChiTown Fashionista, I will continue to feature local designers, fashion and shopping event coverage as well as fashion trends. Over at Chicago Like A Local, it’s all about shopping; where to find the best of the best in clothing, jewelry, accessories and vintage. I’ll also discuss the best places for menswear, home decor and furniture.

I’m currently building a list of places I want to showcase. This means I will be hitting the pavement even more to explore this great city and discover local treasures. Shop owners, beware. I’ll be heading to your neighborhood with my camera and notebook in tow.

Visit (and bookmark) and let me know what you think. Once you’re there, simply click on ‘Shopping’ to see what is now my second home in the blogosphere!

P.S. I would love to hear from you about which shops you think visitors and tourists need to be aware of. So, feel free to leave a comment below listing your favorites.
