Steal of the Week: Chi town tax break

This week Chicago has instituted a much, much needed tax break within the city for Back to School shopping. The good news is -- we can all participate in a little back to school retail shopping! All the rules can be found here, but the short of it is, instead of paying near 10% tax on everything, from now until August 15th, tax on clothing purchases under $100 will only be taxed 4.75%! And if you're shopping in some of the 'burbs which already have lower rates, it could be as low as 1.25%

I don't know about you, but I'm feeling the urge to cash in on this deal! Good time to hit up Michigan Avenue. A couple of my favorite finds along Michigan Ave for under $100:

I really like this whole ensem from Banana. To keep each purchase under $100, buy the skirt on Michigan Ave and the top in Water Tower :)
Tweed skirt & Ruffle blouse both online too.

So what if J.Crew comes out with a different version of this every season?! It's still pretty want-able in the mustard color and almost tax-free.

And lastly, I think I'm ready to try these Jeggings everyone is talking about. If I can semi-pull off regular leggings with long tops, I should be able to do these too!
