844 West Armitage Avenue Chicago, IL 60614-4308
This boutique specializes in children’s clothing and accessories. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. Suz recently went a little crazy in here picking out cute shoes and clothes for three year old style-ista niece Emma. Plus, there’s a fun merry-go-round right outside the door to keep the little ones occupied (or the older ones.) Suz on Style gives it 4 Stilettos.
This Chicago boutique has many locations with the flagship store being in Wicker Park. While many of the clothes are made with poly-blend fabrics, are unlined and are cut for a 14 year old, this store does carry some good brands beyond the Akira label. Plus, they carry a ton of great shoes, jeans and accessories. Suz purchased her fav brown and grey boots at Akira. Suz on Style gives it 3.5 Stilettos.
