The second city landed the second topshop this side of the pond. If you don't know about this already, close your browser and refresh your life!

Not to Miss - There are items that are exclusive to Chicago. Nail varnish in "Windy City" blue. Three words - Dalmatian Spotted Sweater (Topshop Unique, Burberry)
