Ok...to make things simple...I woke up at 5:40am left and went to chicago for (in order): 1) macy's on state street 2) filenne's basement (horrible don't even bother going no promotions and everything has been picked) 3) H&M 4) Loehmann's (nice selection in downtown chicago) They have a promotion going on for 20% off yellow sticker items +10% additional off sale clearance items + 25$ GC for 75$ purchase. It's kinda amazing. 5) Bloomingdale's (guy's additional 50% sucked) 6) Barney's (surprised it wasn't fully picked...lots of great selections are still avail) 7) Macy's on michigan avenue 8) H&M on michigan ave to return several stuff I bought at H&M #3. 9) Filene's basement on Michigan ave (again no deals) 10) Neiman Marcus (lots of ppl shopping around the 25% additional sale) 11) Saks (omg this place was like a fleamarket. I was stepping on alexander mcqueen scarves on the floor as I was walking...sick) 12) Zegna store 13) Ferragamo store (bad bad sale this year. Only like 35%-40%) 14) Burberry (lots of great selections still available). I don't think I've ever been more exhausted in my life shopping as I was today.... So in all...I got: 1) presale items from Saks, Neimans (true religion pants, kiton tie, 4 varvatos shirts) 2) h&m shirt for 10$. 3) skinny tie at loehmann's for 19.99$ 4) varvatos SS'08 shirt accidentally marked down 66% for 50$ at macy's. 5) bunch of xmas ornaments.
