Cheap Thrills: Chicago Edition

Happy Wednesday, all! Today's edition of Cheap Thrills is Chicago related...as I grew up in Chicago and will soon be in Chi-town celebrating my brother's wedding! Yaaaay!

In the spirit of Chicago, I wanted to share my favorite Windy City Cheap Thrills...and here they are:
  • Garrett's Popcorn: Most.amazing.caramel corn.ever. Lines are out the door at all times...both locals and tourists completely lurve this place. (The cheese popcorn is also incredible...ok, it's all fabulous)
  • Cubs Bleacher Seats: Ok, these aren't as cheap as they were years ago, but still....if you ever get a chance to head out to a Cubbies game, do so. The bleachers are really fun, albeit quite toasty!
  • Hot dogs (at said Cubs game or Portillo's): Vienna beef. 'Nuff said.
  • AKIRA: Again, not a super cheap shopping hub, but I found the most adorable tops, dresses and accessories at affordable prices. They have a great online site, too!
And here is today's Polyvore set of cheap thrills...that little polka dot silk top is so stinkin' cute. Enjoy!
