Uniqlo just opened it first store in Chicago and it’s first location in the Midwest.  I have heard a lot about this affordable line so I made sure to stop by during their grand opening weekend a couple of weeks ago.  I thought I would go the second day they were open just so I could miss the crowds.  Wrong! I showed up at the store opening and there was a line out the door that wrapped around the block. My mom and I waited patiently in line for about 10 minutes and then we were able to investigate this massive store.  It was crazy but I understood why because the deals they were promoting were amazing. (My favorite one was an 8 pack of socks for $1!) If you ever have a chance to check out Uniqlo, go for it.  They have everything you need to keep you warm and cozy for the winter. Their vibe is definitely modern classic which is a style that should last in your wardrobe for years to come.

The sweater and corduroy leggings I’m wearing here are just the tip of the iceberg of what I got. I’m positive I will be sporting my new cashmere sweater from them on the blog soon. This look is definitely one of my go-to weekend casual looks.  The bag was a freebie from them for coming to grand opening weekend.  Welcome Uniqlo!
