It’s a Steal
Summer’s best deals at a neighborhood fashion event
Another sign that summer?s almost over: Our favorite stores have moved on to fall fashion. But we?re practitioners of year-round dressing, which means there?s no better time to find something to layer under a chunky sweater than an end-of-season sale.
Nearly 60 shops in Bucktown and Wicker Park are taking their savings to the streets tomorrow and Sunday during the Last Call Sale and Fashion Fest (11 a.m. to 6 p.m.), which for the first time ever is veering into full-on fest mode by adding live music and family entertainment.
Some of the best boutiques in the city are in on the action: We?ll be scouring the racks for overlooked treasures like beautifully cut dresses from Helen Yi, timeless furniture from Stitch and luxe skin-care and beauty products from Ruby Room.
When you need a break from browsing, stop by the Anthem on Division Street; four fashion shows and a full entertainment schedule will take place tomorrow from noon to 10 p.m.
