CHICAGO Store Spotlight: Salvation Army

About 2 months ago, I had the pleasure of visiting a close college friend (more like a sister) of mine that happens to live in Chicago. This was my second time visiting the Windy City and though my first time was filled with seeing more tourist sites, this time around I was determined to explore the thrift stores!!!
Well, the 1st thrift store happen to be not too far from Midway Airport (I had only been in Chi Town for an hour, and already found a thirft store) and we went to many more over the weekend, and oh, let me tell you, I was in Thrifting Heaven! For some people the smell and all the racks may be a little overwhelming, but for me, I do not mind it especially when i know hidden beneath all of that could be a designer piece of clothing for barely nothing or that item that I've been looking to add to my wardrobe! And it's also a little sentimental for me, I've been going to thrift stores since I was a little girl with my Grandma.
Well, see the details below on one of the many stores I shopped and the Luv Jones Find!
