My sister wants me to take her to a bunch of boutique-type places in the city so that she can find herself a dress for a school dance. The problem is--I don't shop all that much, so I have no idea where to take her. She wants to find a dress that no one else will have, which shouldn't be too hard as she lives in the suburbs and not many of them get out to the city much. Currently, I live pretty close to Lincolnwood (yeah, so I'm barely in the city), but I don't mind traveling too far--is there some sort of neighborhood that we can just stop in or will we be traveling all over the place to find her this perfect dress? Help!

I am know I am late on the post. But anything on Clark Street. or at Urban Outfitters. Or my favorite store Futurgarh but I don't know how many dresses they have there.

I haven't read all the way through this yet, but Chicago Magazine just put out a huge list of boutiques in the city.


Maybe you'll find something in there!

I'm gonna bump this, because I just started selling my purses and bags at a shop on Belmont and Clark that sells DIY stuffs, including dresses, and clothing.  It is called Vicious Cycle so if you are in the Belmont and Clark area (all of the shops there are my FAVORITE!!!!) you can try there for really cool DIY stuff!!!!

Hmm, I'd definitely head over to Wicker Park. You can find tons of resale, vintage, and new shops on Milwaukee that are pretty sweet. It can get rather pricy, but you're pretty much guaranteed to find something unique. Hope this helps!
