I really love to buy gifts for little girls from this store, not only because the dolls and accessories are so cute -- but because all of the toys from this store teach kids something about a different culture. You will find (super expensive) dolls here, that are dressed up and accessorized according to a certain culture. The doll comes with a birth certificate and a video explaining its life and heritage. It is all really interesting and also a good educational experience for little kids. The store does get pretty crowded though so expect to share the space!

Right on Michigan Avenue, Forever 21 is the place to shop for clothes that are trendy and affordable. I like shopping here because I can get all the latest styles and I don't have to pay too much for them. All the clothing here is reasonably priced and super affordable. As for quality, the clothes don't last that long, but that is okay because they last long enough for me to be seasonably trendy! The best part about this store is that it is really big and there's a huge clearance section on the bottom floor. I have gotten shirts and pants here for under $10! It really is a great place for the fashionistas!

This is a very beautiful mall located in the heart of the city. It is right on the Magnificent Mile and oh-so-magnificent it is! It's very nicely kept and decorated (with cute little fountains). There is a lot to do inside. They have many stores, many which are also designer stores. There are stores for everybody in the family here. My favorite part of this mall is their food court -- it's huge and there are many options too choose from!
