Eating local is all the rage. Why not shop local too?
Check back here every day for a classically Chicagoan take on the holiday gift guide. Here, you’ll find either a sophisticated or fun holiday gift item made by a Chicagoan, produced by Chicagoans, inspired by Chicagoans or sold exclusively in Chicago.
FOR THE FASHION-FORWARD CHICAGONISTA
Fashion-forward Chicagonistas can always find a hot topper for cool weather when they don one of MCB Shop’s turbans. Not only is this local designer also the curator of a cool architecture, fashion and art newsletter, but when you buy on of her turbans, a portion of the proceeds go toward providing turbans for women fighting cancer or who have survived cancer. You — or your tiny tot — can look good and do good in the same credit card swipe.
Maya-Camille Broussard is the brains behind this headgear. You can also find her at the One of a Kind show this weekend inside the Merchandise Mart. The satin-lined, MCB Shop turbans start at $45 for babies/toddlers and can go upwards to $300 for leather turbans at www.themcbshop.com.
Says Broussard: “Gift the turban with a great pair of statement earrings or a bold lipstick color to give the recipient a headstart on a fabulous look.”
