Happy 10th Anniversary Akira Chicago!

Happy Monday my fellow thriftanistas.I know your dying to see what awesome treasures I found at all the thrifty sales this weekend. However I will reveal them in my next post. Today I want to take the time to say Happy 10th Anniversary to a fabulous, fashion forward, trend setting boutique called Akira Chicago. For those that don’t know Akira Chicago is an upscale boutique that started in Chicago’s Wicker Park/Bucktown¬†area in 2002. They have since grown to 17 stores throughout Chicago and the surrounding suburbs. Now I have to honestly admit that I have never actually been in Akira. I can hear you all saying “then why are you wishing them happy anniversary?”. My reason is two-fold. Reason one I love fashion, in addition I salute any business that has 10 years of longevity¬†and continues to stay fashion forward. The second reason is because I own 6 fabulous Akira dresses (via my local thrift store). So although I am not an Akira shopper……….I am an Akira lover. Who know’s I may even have to stop at my local Akira store to see what fabulous sales they having going. You all know if I buy RETAIL it has to be on SALE :). Anywho check out the picks below to see some of my fabulous Akira finds.

Smooches,
The Thrifty Fashionista
