BRACE YOURSELF: When you think about it, shopping online is the way to go. No driving in traffic, no waiting in line to check out and certainly no unflattering dressing room mirrors to further sabotage your self-confidence. Save yourself the pain and shop local goods online at the newly-launched Shopembrace.com, created by Chicago gal-about-town Lynette Lovelace. Highlights include Shonto Canyon turquoise jewelry, cute home décor pieces and delicious-smelling apothecary products from Lovelace’s own line, Lifetherapy. Go ahead, shop yourself silly.
Shop Yourself Silly
Virtual boutiques, saucy lingerie and sweet gear to sweat in
By KIM PEIFFER
GAGA FOR GEAR: There may be no more fireworks in the picture, but the fourth of July celebrations just keep on coming. Equinox continues the holiday celebration with its “Let Freedom Bring” sale. Now through July 31 get 20 percent off any purchases at The Shop@ Equinox when you bring in gently used performance wear to be donated to local charities. Helping others while also being rewarded with discounted workout duds sounds like a celebration we want to be a part of.
SEXY LITTLE THANG: Make him melt in his skivvies when you come home from a shopping trip to Agent Provocateur, the saucy lingerie boutique on Oak Street, with a few new things to spice up the boudoir. Right now you can score lacey bras, sexy panties, bodysuits and more at up to 50 percent off original price at the One and Only Annual sale, going on now through the beginning of August. Get it while it’s hot people.
