There's been much ado about Maria Pinto since Obamania took off and the fashion pundits began wondering who Michelle Obama was wearing.

Pinto rode the wave, and opened her first boutique right here in Chicago. (Her line is also at Saks and Barney's.)

Since it's the season for sales, Pinto is offering discounts on select items at her boutique until January 15th. You'll find everything from coats to cocktail dresses on sale. She also carries some amazing accessories if you don't want to splurge on an outfit.

Pinto's store is at 135 N. Jefferson, and is open everyday except Sunday and Monday.

This is one time of year when -- yes, you can -- afford Maria Pinto.
