CHICAGO, Feb. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Ever wonder where the best-dressed people in the city buy their clothes? How about where top interior designers shop for their home furnishings? We wanted to know, so we asked local experts to divulge their savviest shopping tips and top-secret sources.

The March issue of Chicago magazine, which hits newsstands Thursday, reveals shopping tips from dozens of local experts, including fashion designer Maria Pinto, chef Art Smith, and interior design guru Nate Berkus. Discover where these and others buy everything from vintage furnishings and hostess gifts to apparel and electronics.  

"With their hectic schedules, our readers don't always have time to hunt down the best places to buy gifts or apparel or furniture or scores of other goods," says Richard Babcock, Chicago editor. "We tapped the expertise of people who have already done the hunting and who revealed to us their favorite boutiques, bookstores, thrift shops, and more. It's an incredibly useful resource."

This month's issue also features Chicago's Spring Fashion Special. Splashed over more than 20 pages are the season's snazziest looks and accessories, including clogs, denim, leather, and much more.

Elsewhere in the March issue of Chicago:

  • Chicago Guide®: Baseball, maple syrup, St. Pat's. Must be March in Chicago. See our top picks for music, theatre, and other events around town.
  • Table: Some restaurant lines are worth the wait; Balsan: home of the guiltiest French pastry pleasure; it's raining bagels in Wicker Park; the ten hottest restaurants.

Chicago editor Richard Babcock, managing editor Shane Tritsch, and other members of the magazine staff are available for on-air interviews about stories in the February issue. Contact Kate Mersman at 312-222-3165 to schedule an interview.
