SKINCARE

  1. Cocovit Coconut Oil – A luxurious and organic wonder product known for its healing and emollient properties, Cocovit is pure coconut oil for your face and body. What makes Cocovit different is that they do not cold-process/press the oil, ensuring it’s essential nutrients are not lost through the packaging of the product. Use it as a face moisturizer and blemish-healer, as a hair mask and nail strengthener, or even as a baby-safe body cream. Cocovit is a Chicago-based line selling across the country this holiday season – with two sizes available – a travel and TSA-friendly 3.3oz size at $25 and a substantial 8.8oz jar at $38.

Head “South” For the Winter: 3 Reasons to Holiday Shop Roosevelt Collection

 

The Shops at Roosevelt Collection

If you frequent the South Loop, you can’t help but notice the many changes taking place on Roosevelt, between Clark and Canal. What was once just a new development with 300+ luxury lofts and an impressive movie theater (VIP, anyone?), has quickly become a premier shopping destination for those living south of the city’s center.

Although there is much to be said about the selection of national and local shops at Roosevelt Collection (150 W. Roosevelt Rd ), I’ve decided to break down what separates it from the pack when it comes to holiday shopping.

‘Tis the season to do more shopping in a few days than you have all year (well, for some of us). So here are just a few reasons that The Shops at Roosevelt Collection is winning during this time of year.

Redgi Woods ReFINDefined

Today’s giveaway may not exactly be a tangible item, but it’s definitely one worth envying. Redgi Woods, stylist extraordinaire and ReFINDefined designer, proved that men could know a thing or two about style when we featured him on season 1 of our Closet Conversations series. Even Refinery29 fell prey to his fashion prowess.

Randolph Street Market Chicago

 

This may turn out to be the shortest post ever. Why? Because I have professed my love for the Randolph Street Market on numerous occasions (see herehere and here) and even featured its founder, Sally Schwartz, on Closet Conversations. So, if you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you know that the Randolph Street Market is where I typically find the most unique fashion, furniture and home decor. And by “find”, I mean purchase. Because it’s hard to simply walk away from the one-of-a-kind items you discover there.

mario tricoci

Designated as “Chicago’s original day spa”, with 15 locations in Illinois and counting, it’s fair to say that Mario Tricoci Hair Salons & Day Spas is one of the most well known establishments in the Midwest. We won’t even begin to mention the long list of publications (i.e. Vogue, Glamour, ELLE) and talk shows (hello, Oprah!) that have featured Mario Tricoci.  Its name is synonymous with quality and innovation.

my noma

My nOma is no stranger to ChiTown Fashionista. I have been a huge fan of designer and Puerto Rican sweetheart, Nora Nieves, since the day I laid eyes on her jewelry at Dose Market a year ago. Upon first glance, you can’t help but to realize there’s nothing “run of the mill” about My nOma. It is meant to be worn by those who purposefully thrive to make a statement with their accessories (which explains why I walked away with three bracelets and a ring on our first encounter).
