Typically when we think of something you can only get in Chicago, frostbite comes to mind. Not true anymore. Vintage-focused designer Ani Lee recently collaborated with handbag line FedoraMi, to create an exclusive-to-Chicago evening bag. The result is the Isi bag—designed in vintage silk and Italian leather, the clutch combines the aesthetics of both designers. The bag is modern but also timeless and high-quality, meaning if you care for it the way you should, you'll be loving it forever. Anyone picking out Valentine's Day gifts for themselves should nudge this link in the right direction.
Isi bag, $650, available at Sofia, 72 East Oak Street (just west of Lake Shore Drive); 312-640-0878.
